Best IEM Workout/Work Headphone

post #1 of 47
Thread Starter 
I've been searching and I can't find anything specific to me..
I would like an IEM for work and working out..
I'm a tile guy so I need something that isn't sound canceling so I can hear my boss yellin at me and I'm thinking an ear clip would be the best to hold it on...

Here are some more specifics of things I'd like them to be..
- not sound canceling
- ear clip or something of the sort so they stay in
- under $50
- I would love if it had the iPod controls so I didn't get yelled at for taking my phone out;)
- comfortable (obviously)
- very rugged..
- I work with a lot of water and I sweat pretty decent so keep that in mind..
- I like good sound. Soundstage is nice:)
- I listen to a lot of genres.. Rock, hip hop, rap, r&b, country, alternative, punk rock, oldies, even a little Johnny Cash...smily_headphones1.gif

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
The day goes so much better with music and my apple ear buds just aren't cutting it. But when do they ever?

Your best bet would be to go through Jokers thread at that price range and use his scale of isolation to determine what would be best.

All of those are sealed, providing too much isolation..

I would again recommend the AirBuds for work and working out. I think their fit and the pricepoint is unmatched, i am kind of surprised these dont get more attention.

 

The foam tips are water proof so you can wash them/not worry about sweat. They stay in no matter what and they are good for isolation. Extremely comfortable for running and everything also.

hope this helps

they also have a remote on the cord and arent too canceling if you keep the volume low

I can't find any reviews on this? And those types of ear buds NEVER stay in my ear...

I checked those out. The ones I'd want are spendy. There's gotta be something out there?...

They have some reviews on their product page www.air-buds.com/product/ and so far they are pretty good.

 

They have memory foam tips where you squeeze before putting in your ear and then they expand to fit your ear. I really dont see how they couldnt fit

But can't they be yanked out easy?

Even the deepest seated IEM can be yanked out.

It is all a matter of cord management.

They stay in my ear much more snug than anything other pair of earbuds I have tried, period. The reviews I read had many people saying they used them for high intensity workouts.  The memory foam really creates a nice fit that wouldn't fall out running or lifting weights. Also, the cord is flat and smooth, similar to beats by dres IEM line, so it is easy to manage and comfortable against the skin.

 

Hope that helps!
