I havent been on these forums in about 2 years. I currently only some Beyer and Audio Tech's for my setup at home now I need something for the gym. I currently buy the cheap THC/Dre.Dre beats earbuds from china for $6 bucks that do the job, but I want to up the sound. I workout pretty seriously 6 days a week. I am into powerlifting and light cardio. My current problems...
1) length of the cord on ear buds, since there are to wire they snag alot
2) my iphone ( I stream pandora mostly currently ) is in my pocket. I just but a highly recommended belt clip to resolve this issue and help with wire length and pocket ( falling out ) issue
I listen to mostly hip hop and rock, so nice bass and treble is all I care about currently. I have read countless threads for 2+ hours and was not going to start a new post just for the simple fact there are well.... countless threads on this. I like the Beats just for the simple fact they have cords on 1 side, therefore I can have it under my shirt and only on the right/left instead of 2 cords meeting in the middle and yanking out of one ear, which is an issue I currently have. I dont do HIIT type cardio etc etc so Im not worried about movement knocking the buds/headphones off my ear. Only bench press ( laying down movements ) might cause a concern, but have no yet. Im looking to spend no more than $100 on a set used or new. I was looking at the noontec zoro however my concern with those are the quality of the earmuff's. They are alot thinner and cheaper quality. I have tested both and I like the sound of both for what I listen to when I workout. These are strictly being used for only lifting. Therefore, all I care about is
1) wire placement / single wire is a bonus
2) quality of the earpads if they are headphones
3) bass, yes I am a bass freak when I lift but I dont want it to sound like **** and muffle out the vocals
If anyone has suggestions I can google/ebay look up on my own I will do the research just looking for some quick answers because I have been out of the game for awhile and Im not up to date on current audio. I figured I could get some suggestions faster by make my own post because so far I havent seen anything from reading past post other than the noontec zoro's but like I said the earpads bother me. I workout religiously. Earbuds would work if the length of the wire reaches my hip with extra slack and can stand up with some durability.
Appreciate any recommendations - Note, cause I know I can make this clear enough, lol.... This is for the GYM only, hip hop/rock... not some hardcore sound stage, audophile blah blah blah... I already have those here with my pretty Audio Tech's and Beyers :) Thanks
