Klipsch S4's not doing the job for working out, suggestions?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Home setup in sig. 

 

I have a set of Klipsch S4s lying around that I have been using at the gym.

 

Two things get on my nerves about them:

 

When I'm running or even jogging for that matter, they:

     1) Fall out, or lose seal, no matter which tips I use

     2) I can hear my strides as *thud* *thud* *thud* every time my feet hit the ground

 

SQ wise, these are fine for the purpose of working out.

 

I've HONESTLY (and never thought I would say this) considered Bose's new IEMs (the green ones) that are geared towards exercise.  

 

....suggestions....?

 

Thanks,

I3

Dude, not to be rude but there are MULTIPLE threads on this... even just searching using google brings up Head-Fi threads.  MEElectronics M6 is a popular choice (and what I use).  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0038W0K2K/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

S4s are in general a terrible IEM for the price, just as a note.

Try wearing the S4 over the ears, that reduces cable noise and it shouldn't fall out with a proper seal.

Ordered the MEElectronics M6, great reviews on them.  Thanks for the advice!

Highly recommend the M6s.  Great workout headphones, and not too shabby sound, either!!

 

Thanks again for the recommendation!
