Lets see your gym set ups!

What up and hello,

 

If you guys are nerds like me, and I hope you are, you take your music seriously...even in the gym. 

 

I was curious to see what rigs people are rocking in the gym, so like the title says lets see what you guys are wearing when you are getting the "cuts". <-----please take that as sarcastically as i meant it. 

 

Heres my setup:

I don't work out at a gym. If I did, I would use a Sandisk Clip+ and a JVC Riptidz. Using cheap but decent enough gear at the gym is the way to go.

Why the Shuffle? It is $49 in the US for a 2GB Shuffle without a radio and without a card slot. A 2GB Clip+ is just $30. The Clip+ has a display, FM radio, and a micro SDHC card slot. One can add a 16GB microSDHC card to the Clip+, and have a great tiny 18GB player for under $50.

 

Do you have AAC files? The Clip+ doesn't support AAC files, but the newer Clip Zip($40 for a 4GB player) supports unprotected AAC files, displays album art, has a stopwatch and clock, and is otherwise almost the same as the Clip+(what is displayed is a bit different, but that can be changed with Rockbox).

That costs around $250. I like the idea of a setup for the gym that costs under $50($30 2GB Clip+, $8 JVC Riptidz, and $11 16GB microSDHC card). If this is broken or lost, one won't be nearly as unhappy as trashing $250 of gear. The Riptidz is listed as being sweat and water resistant. It sounds quite good considering its $8 price.

 

Using an ipod Classic at the gym is a bad idea. Its hard drive is very vulnerable to shock and vibration.

Because it's smaller, sturdier, more convenient and i got it very cheap 2nd hand. Sound quality is not really my main worry at the gym or when i'm active with it and I don't really use it for anything else. I've had a Clip+ and ended up selling it, i almost never used it.

Main concern of mine in the gym is definitely amount of sound and fit of headphones not necessarily sound quality...my fiio e5 has changed my gym experience, you just can't crank up those phonak audeo headphones high enough without a bass
