« on: Sep 16, 2012, 22:55:13 »
Anyone use/used headphones during exercise?

I've yanked them out through catching the wires numerous times over the years, so I'd prefer bluetooth.
Sweating causes the earbuds to fall out.

Have these problems been solved by technology yet?

And do the underwater ones really work without falling out all the time?

Cheers.

H'mm.

TP, water and electricity(even tiny amounts) sounds like a recipe for disaster! Likewise, running/cycling with headphones anywhere but on a machine imo.

Bose 'StayHear' works pretty well though - if expensive.

Sssshhh! We are trying to convince him that whilst swimming he also needs to keep it plugged into the wall so as to not affect perfromance.... ;)

Bose ones with buds shaped like spocks ear stay in well

They look good, cheers. Have you tried wire-free headphones (Bluetooth)?


Anyone used earphones whilst swimming?

I'm considering these:

Jaybird constantly get good reivew for exercise (T3 etc) - obviously no good for swimming but I have my doubts about the compatibility of h/phones and swimming

Put a wee dab of silicon sealant on each ear bud just before you put them in. you shouldn't have any problems with them coming out ever again....

Next time we see TP he'll have gone slightly deaf and will have what looks like a small tail hanging out of his ears where his wife has cut the cables.....

All joking aside TP.....

I've tried iPhone with Bluetooth headphones and all sorts of wired headphones. For running, general gym stuff this (for me) isn't great. I now use an iPod shuffle with my "gym music" on it clipped to the bottom of my shirt- with a pair of Sennheiser CMX680's. These are perfect in the gym, haven't slipped out once even on a really sweaty session. I bring the cable inside my shirt and clip it to the neck of my shirt to stop it flapping about and causing me to yank the earphones out my ear with flailing arms when I'm struggling to run lol

Admittedly, on the way home tonight I suddenly did realise who I had given the advice to  and felt slightly anxious....only very slightly though.


Hopefully everybody knows that its not a good idea to use silicon sealant in your ears - super glue holds the earphones in much better.
