headphones that won't fall off when skateboarding

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
looking for some headphones that will stay on my head!

i was using AKG K518DJ while skating today and they constantly fall off
i was wondering if the interesting Sennheiser HD25-1 II headband design makes them stay secured on your head a lot better, while jumping up and down?

then i thought that maybe the PX100 would be best because they are really small and light. i'm also thinking the foamie pads might grip the ears a lot more as the pleather gets really sweaty and slides off too easily.

i'm a bit worried about using the PX100s outside though due to their non-existent isolation? i don't want IEMs as i don't want complete isolation either.

any opinions/recommendations?
thanks!

hmmmmmm... maybe dt770.. they were pretty snug on me, and i have a small head.. plug they would look awesome on you while skateboarding

i really can't imagine them staying on though they're HUGE
i need something small, light and possibly clamping.
it might not be possible.

Is it just me, or is skateboarding while listening to music not such a good idea? Take a look at the Senn HD-25 or equation RP-21. Both have some good clamping force.

dt770s would definately stay on well although i would be nervous using a headphone that expensive.

rp-21 gets my vote.

Do they need to be full size headphones? I use the Sennheiser MX75 for running and they are perfect. Since they are earbuds, they don't have much isolation.

Theres the PMX100, which i believe is a behind-the-head model of the PX100. That should stay on. For the DT770 (if you plan to go with it), theres the DT770-M made with extra clamping force for drummers.

sennheiser hd-25, you wont be able to get them off with the headband expanded, they are also very durable, also every part can be replaced, so if you break something you just need to fix the part that you broke. you can get velour pads for them.

interesting, but i'm worried my unamped Cowon D2 won't be able to power these that well. also didn't really want to spend that much. behind the headphones would make sense but they're all so ugly, i've always hated that style of headphone.

i can't see why the px100s wouldn't be sufficient for what i need. does anyone use them while jogging or similar?

I recommend the K412P (as long as you don't mind some seriously intense bass). The 412P clamps really hard. IMO the PX100 and the K412P are good phones, but just not suitable where there's lots of background noise. They're definitely better than Grados, though, which just let everything in.

I'd get some earbuds. Not enough isolation to be dangerous, and might stay in place with the cord secured beneath your chin. Pk3's might be a good place to start.

Just thought you might want to know the PX100 Retros fit really well and will not fall off (of my head, anyway). I bought the last two pairs earlier tonight.
