    Does anyone else blitz through headphones for the gym?
    In the last 4 to 5 months, I have went through 3. All of them are different name brands.

    can't really help you, cause I have the same problem with the ear buds...I blow them out with pressurized air till that no longer works then just get another cheep pair.
    Get a huge kick out of watching guys trying to work out with these new high $ big ass cans...one guy nearly flipped a bitch when he dropped a weight on them--some baby momma ant get her check this month.

    Sony over-ear headphones are the best! Only $9.99 at Staples and Walmart.

    Not me. My last pair lasted a few years, until one side started to develop a loose connection. Replaced it with the same brand/series, and so far so good.

    Sony EX-37. Usually sell for $20, but Best Buy has them on sale every few months.

    Yeah, I don't get it when people spend $200 for Beats headphones to wear at the gym. But if they got money to burn and if those Beats prevent me from hearing their crappy music, I'm all for it! icon_biggrin.gif

    I have my JVC earphones with the fancy earhooks on them. They stay nice and secure when I run.
    Bought them 'cause they're cheap and Trolli likes 'em.

    I'm the same way. My favorites are Skull Candy headphones, but after a few weeks one side ALWAYS stops working. I need to find a new dependable brand. Regular buds just don't do music justice.

    omfg you need to upgrade
    Skullcandy was popular back in middle school, then died when everyone found out how bad they are.
    But, Skullcandy does have a lifetime warranty on their products. So if anything breaks you can go to their website and submit for a replacement. You need the original purchase receipt though.

    You're right, but that's why I kee using them, the warranty. I've wanted to try the ones you posted above, but the honestly don't look comfortable. Especially during gymnastics.

    Etymotic Hf5. Best pair of Headphones I've had. I've gone through only 2 pairs in the last 4 years - they last a while (as long as you don't beat the shit out of them) and they have great quality, bass, range, and noise cancellation! Comes in Blue, Red, and black!

    The JVC are really secure. The buds fit snug in my ears.
    And Sony makes these. Idk if they're super effective but they look like they have 360 coverage. They're ~$20 MSRP:
