What headphones do you use when working out

AsthmaticHippoAsthmaticHippo Member Posts: 46 Member Member Posts: 46 Member
Just out of interest what headphones do people use when working out. I have used loads over the years

Bose Pulse - great sound and stayed in my ear but my ears got really sweaty after 60mins training. Also went through 2 pairs as battery stopped holding any charge (Bose were good in replacing)

Plantronics Backbeat Fit - really great fit. The ear hooks kept them in place and as they did not need to sit in the ear to deep I did not feel like my ears were over heating. The hooks did need to be positioned to work with sunglasses. Charging connector corroded and completely died, was really disappointed

B&O H5. Still alive which is positive. The fit is good but i do get sore ears if I wear them too long. The battery life is not awesome so they need to be recharged after every workout. One really annoying aspect is the silicone wings need to be removed to fit them in the charger. The sound quality is really good and i liked being able to adjust the sound profile through the app

AfterShokz Aeropex - current pair. These are great. Very comfortable and good sound but I agree with reviews that voice podcasts are better than music. That said when I’m training I am not too bothered on the quality being a little lower. I do notice the vibration if I have the volume up high

What do you use, what works and why?

    I just got a pair of Beats pro wireless for Xmas. They are definitely more expensive than what I'd by for myself, and apparently my husband got a good deal on them on a one day sale on Amazon. I was worried they wouldn't fit my small ears, but they fit really well and are comfortable and of course the sound is great.

    I'm cheap with these because I've been both accident-prone and forgetful. So I've settled on an Amazon purchase from a brand called Enacfire. Essentially, it is these...

    https://www.amazon.ca/Bluetooth-Wireless-ENACFIRE-Headphones-Waterproof/dp/B07PY41MPG/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=ENACFIRE&qid=1610215912&sr=8-8

    ...but I have the 2020 model (where the charging case is more rectangular than square). I bought 3 pairs of them last year. I'm on Pair #2 and the last pair is still in the box just waiting for me to mess up and lose an earbud 😒

    Very basic samsung headphones (like the old apple wired headphones). I find they stay in well, but also provide me with some.sound input from outside.

    I was given a pair of Jabra wireless earbuds for Christmas 2019. I expect they were expensive, but the sound quality is great and they’re equally secure whether I’m running, doing gym cardio or weight training. They seem to be sweat proof too.

    I also have a pair of Jabra Elite (65t I think). I agree the sound is really great on them. They are not stable enough in my ear for me to trust working out in them, but that is not what they are designed for either though

    Me, too. And the first pair broke about 1.5 years in, and they sent me a new pair for free. And I like the over-ear kind, because then people know I have them on (unlike in the in-ear type) and don't try to talk to me as much.

    Are we twins, @Chef_Barbell (except the kid thing) :D ?

    Definitely love the QC35s for commute and travel but wouldn’t want to work out in them. They don’t seem like they’d like sweat?

    I have a pair of Jabra Elite 65t and I love them for running. The fit is good for me although granted I bought them in the fall and have had a snug head cover on all my runs since. I use different size silicon buds for my left and right ear for a secure fit.
    Guess I’m assymetrical!

    IIRC the description mentions them being sweat/dirt resistant and designed for workouts 🙂

    I actually still use the old apple wired earbuds for the same reason. They fit and stay in my ears while I’m running but still allow just enough ambient noise for me to hear my surroundings for safety. I like the old-school version that have a wider earbud that kinda sits on the edge of the ear canal not the more cone shaped ones that insert into it. They don’t make those anymore but awhile back I bought a bunch of them on ebay for $1 apiece and each one lasts a year or more, in the 7 years I’ve been running I’ve not spent even $10 on earbuds so that’s been a plus!

    Bose Soundsport.

    Banging sounds, super comfortable and battery life is excellent.

    Same here. Love 'em. And you can't turn the music up loud. I don't want to go deaf.
