I'm at the gym everyday. They get a little stupid with their selection of music. If I didn't see a bunch of weights and machines i would think i just stepped into a concert. They play all their music SOOOOO loud. I'll just flip the noise cancelation and it drowns out whatever BS they have on. It's the thing I use the most so it wasn't a option NOT to have it.
I've gone option 2 which will be a ModMic into a Rockit Adapter into my series 7 amp. I just ordered a Quad Mogami from one of the forum members here. Can't wait to try that out.
