Ideas for ideal workout headphones?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey-

 

I tend to burn through headphones at a fast pace when I'm working out, so I'm trying to find something that meets the following criteria:

 

Most important:

-Inexpensive (<$50)

-Deep insertion into the ear canal (Soundmagic E30 was too shallow)

-Built to be worn over the ear

 

Nice to have:

-Decent sound quality with a bass emphasis

-Durable cable and strain reliefs

-Straight insertion plug

 

What can you guys think of that fits these criteria?

MEElectronics M6 all the way. Dirt cheap solid piece and good enough sound for the gym. Most important they sit still and won't move whatsoever during workout.

Ha, I actually own and use these as my  workout headphones right now. They are pretty good, but still not quite as deep an insertion as I would like - it takes some doing even with the flanges to get them to really lock into my ear canal and stay put.
