igrados for the gym

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

i was going to get some igrados for the gym but my problem is they are the back of the head kind. i have tried other head phones that are the back of the head kind and was not impressed. can someone recommend me a similar kind for the gym?

KSC75

 

I use them while working out. Holds on really tight, good sound and don't collect sweat.

Huh? ENGLISH DO YOU SPEAK IT?

 

You can bend the clips to adjust the comfort. I like them tight and if you slide them on correctly, they are very comfortable

i will give them a shot. worst case scenario is I will send them back. Where did you buy yours from? Do you know where i can get them cheap?

So i had these for about a month now an one of the speakers no longer works. anyone know the warranty or how to fix? It seems like the wires are delicate and come out of the socket were the speakers and the wires meet. Also the wires do not look any where near as thick as they do in the pic.

My personal cans for workout are a pair of Yuin G2As clipped onto the PortaPros headband. I don't like the Koss sound signature, but love that headband for working out / running,  and the Yuins have the exact same clip socket.

I was gonna a month ago, but didn't feel like being snarked on too. 

 

And yeah, the warranty is pretty awesome. But with the KSC75's, wouldn't you be able to get a new pair for the same price of shipping + $5?
