    Headphones? LOL

    I love my Sennheiser px100 II

    Sennheiser_PX100_4945d39e0f0d8.jpg

    As you can see they fold up nice and look pretty cool too-without being too fancy and bulky

    I have seen them from $50 to over $100 for some reason but I payed like $50. They are totally worth every penny.

    The quality is great and they never fall out while exercising or anything. Those ear buds are cheap and ugly and hurt my ears. Kind of a silly fad icon_razz.gif

    Anyone else still use headphones?

    I prefer the in-ear earbuds. Helps block out the environmental noise. That allows me to keep the volume at a non-deafening level. And it minimizes sound leakage. So I don't have to worry about annoying people around me with my crappy music.

    The evidence that personal music players (pmp) can cause noise induced hearing loss isn't too strong yet. 1) Someone literally needs to listen to an intense sound level for more than eight hours a day for multiple years to cause irreversible damage. 2) However, this is assuming the cochlear function is already healthy ie) not affected by vascular deficiency, medication, genetics, etc...

    Creating a seal is going to be the most effective way to avoid sound leakage.

    The Starkey Invisible In the Canal (IIC) one day should have media streaming available. I know their media streaming technology is pretty good. You can control everything via cellphone. It sits just beyond the 2nd bend of the ear canal. NICEicon_smile.gif

    I'm seeing more and more people using this type/size now, mostly Beats by Dr. Dre.

    Those Dre headphones are around $400! That's insane dedication to music icon_smile.gif

    I've got a pair of Sennheiser for my birthday this year and I get the best sound quality from remastered and classic music like Gerry & the Pacemakers and Rod Stewart, whereas punk and metal music is average quality though. They've been great during winter. Only problem is that the earrings in my stretched earlobes don't fit under them.

    I go with the cheaper less cumbersome Sony earplugs because I don't like big bulky things on my head while working out.

    Sennheiser makes awesome headphones!

    I have two pairs of the in-ear ones... they create a seal and it really stops most things from interrupting or drowning out the the sound of my music. Its great when I dont want to be bothered icon_smile.gif

    I can't wear earbuds ( I apparently have inhumanly large ear canals, any earbud I put in immediately slips out as soon as I engage in any exercise movement). So I have to wear headphones to work out =o

    I have the same problem. I use in-ear earbuds which work a little better and cancel out noise. But they stick out awkwardly on my ears. I'm sure it looks funny to those around me.

    I had sennheisers but they died icon_sad.gif actually I broke them... but I loved them.

    Get a pair of Sony earbuds. They come with different size cushions for different size ears.

    I also have not managed to ever keep a pair of earbuds in my ear. They always fall out and are uncomfortable anyway. So headphones remain my choice to dispense music at the gym!

    HUH! I didn't know Starkey made ear sets for entertainment. Thanks! I know them only as one of the companies the VA has sometimes used for my hearing aids. I've never shopped for hearing aids, just took what I was given.

    I'm due for some new hearing aids, but I doubt the VA would spring for a model that combined sound amplification with media streaming. In fact, right now I can't get any hearing aids out of them at all, they've upped the threshold for hearing aid qualification, and I'm not deaf enough, though service connected.

    I was eligible for 12 years, but budget shortfalls have raised the bar. My last digital pair was worth over $6000, and I really can't see shelling that out myself. I'll just have to keep repeating "Whadya say?" And using closed captioning on the TV at night so my partner can get to sleep. icon_sad.gif

    I go through wired headphones pretty quickly so I usually just get whatever $10 Phillips or Sony I can find.

    Recently I got some Jaybird Freedom 3 Bluetooth for the gym and all in all, I couldn't be happier. The sound quality I don't think is the best ever, but not having to deal with the cord makes up for that. Plus they have a lifetime warranty against sweat, and having ruined a few pairs with my heavy sweating, that's another plus.

    I don't even think it's a size issue with me. I've tried a billion types, even supposedly large ones, they all immediately fall out. I think it's the actual shape of my ear canal that doesn't allow them to stay in place. I tell people and they're all oh you're just putting them on wrong or something, then they try to put them on themselves and they're all all oh lol that's so weird it really won't stay in icon_surprised.gif

    Have never used headphones before. Would imagine they would feel really sweaty and cumbersome while working out, no?

    I love my Bose earbuds. There's not a piece of audio equipment I own that isn't a Bose. My folks recently just had the Bose TV installed!!! I was blown away.
    Sorry to sound like a Bose commercial

    on par with bose on sound quality... but lacks reliability....
    bought a new piece(cost me 100$ approx) a couple of months back...
    hope it lasts longer.

    I generally just use earbuds, but I'm not a high volume kind of guy. I have a large head and any kind of headphone is generally uncomfortable.
