Brainwavz M2 and Exercise - Help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So, I bought a new set of Brainwavz M2s as my workout earphones, and I absolutely love them when it comes to sound quality. Three issues mainly, all related to exercise with them (mainly running):

 

1) They tend to slide out when my ear gets sweaty during workout.

2) The cord is very stiff, and tends to pull them down during a workout.

3) The cord is very stiff... so it makes noise when moving while I'm running.

 

In some pictures of the M2, it looks like there is a behind the ear attachment. Does anybody know where I can get this? I've tried rotating the earphones up and stringing them around the back of my ear, but I find that is even worse than wearing them the regular way.

 

Any accessories which can alleviate this problem?

First you may want to try some Comply T-400 foam tips.  I use them with my M2's and really prefer the way they fit compared to the stock tips.

That should help your fit issues.

 

The next thing you will have to find is the over ear clip that fits the M2 and a shirt clip.  That should minimize the microphonics you are hearing.  I did a ton of digging and so far I cannot find an earclip that would definitely fit the M2's.  It is possible a good shirt clip will solve the problem once you install the T-400 tips.

Probably worth noting that the M2s come with a pair of Comply tips, and a shirt clip, so you should probably check if the supplied tips are a good size for you before buying a separate 3-pair pack.

Genius! How did I not notice that? Indeed they come with a clip and the comply tips, which I can tell already stay in much better (though they don't feel as comfortable).

ear guides might help to relieve the strain and prevent pulling the M2 out of your ears
