    Default Headphones at the gym!

    Ok, so I am totally getting fedup trying different cheap headphones at the gym. The small little in ear ones always fall out, the big overhead ones are just too damn big......so my question is...


    What do you all use for headphones at the gym?


    Pictures/links would be greatly appreciated. I want to keep under $100, wired or wireless, and must sound half decent. Also, they need to be able to plug into my Ipod.


    Thanks!

    I use the big ones, you could go with the Bose noise cancellation phones, and yes I know I said the B-word. But those things sound decent, I like them for travel. I use the in ear buds when Im out on the MV Agusta(motorcycle), with the ipod tucked inside my jacket pocket.

    I use a little set of Sony headphones from Target about $15. They are the kind that set on the ear, not buds or the big over ear thing. The plastic conneting band goes around the back of the head just above the neck.

    Now, these are not high grade sound, but that is not what I am looking for while in the gym. I find they don't get in the way, and they have a long cord (about 3ft) so my music source can be a good distance away (cheap panasonic CD player really long (45 - 60 sec) shock protection and easy on batteries, I have never even held an mp3 player). You will be surprised, but the band around the back of your head will not get in the way when you are on a bench or leg press, and their presence does an excellent job of keeping those gym socialites from getting in the way of a good workout.

    I find the big over ear variety too clunky and they distract me when I have worn them. I used to wear the little ear buds, but over time and during a long work out, they actually would hurt the outer parts of my ear.

    Sorry for not responding sooner. Sennheiser px-200.
    Small, folding, sealed, $40-50, and easy to drive. Son #2
    gives them a thumbs up. Also in this price range is the AKG k-26p.
    Little larger, same price range. May fit your ear better for a better seal.
    Both these cans are sealed, so others don't hear you listening to
    "eye of the tiger" at the gym!:D

    Best earbud's I have ever heard. I have the exact same problem as you except worse. One of my ear canals is mishapen and is a lot smaller and more awkward than the other so earbuds NEVER fit. Unitl I got these, with three different interchangable caps for different sized ears. They also sound really good with deep bass and clear highs. :)
