Hi Folks,


I'm looking for a good pair of headphones for the gym - my current headphones have a foam pad that just gets nasty after sweating for an hour. Here are a few requirements.


1) No earbuds or in-ear, they're too uncomfortable.

2) Great sound.

3) Something that fit behind the head or another not to bulky design that I could run on the treadmill with

4) Something that I could clean after I sweat all over it.


5) Not crazy expensive - under $100 would be great.


So far, I've found these headphones that might fit the bill

Turtle Beach ANR10

Sennheiser - PMX200

Opinions? Thanks!!

I use these from Sony. Quality is decent and they are cheap enough to replace if they get nasty. I like that there's no band. The wires do get a bit tangled but for the gym they are fine. Sound like you want better quality, but hey, my 2 cents. Snagged em from BestBuy.

I have these and I cannot stand them. If you even look at them wrong the wires become a complete mess. I spend the first few minutes of every workout just trying to untangle the wire, very frustrating.

Neither of these look like they are made for the gym. The first pair looks kind of bulky and the second pair look like they would be pretty sweaty if you are trying to work out with them on.

These seem to work real well from Sennheiser and the price is right.

These look pretty sweet, I may have to give them a shot.

I don't know which in-ears you have tried, but the nicer ones (Shures, for example) come with a variety of earpiece options, both size-wise and material-wise, so you can customize them to fit your ear and preference. I do not find mine to be uncomfortable at all.

I second the PX100, have heard nothing but good things about and from it. Sennheiser makes really good headphones/ ear phones in general so it's hard to go wrong.

They're definitely awesome. If you want behind-the-ears type, get the PMX100. Identical to the PX100, other than the way they sit on your head.

Thanks for the suggestions!


I defn't haven't tried expensive in-ear headphones. As I'm not even sure where I could audition a pair. I've only tired cheapy Sony's. I'm not a big fan of the noise isolation either for the gym. I still need to hear my workout partner scream for help if the weights fall on her.

I went to newegg.com, purchased the sennheiser cx300 for $22.99 (they retail for $90), then I went to sennheiser's website to print out a $15 mail in rebate, all you have to do is fill out the form(includes reciept, and upc barcode) and send them a pair of old used, broken head phones back to them.

Hope this helps.
