I live in New Jersey but very close to New York, does anyone know a good place I could try out more bluetooth headphones? I think I need to hear them myself.

So I tried the HK's. But I really didn't like the headband....When walking, I could hear every step of the metal part of the band. Pretty annoying. Plus I hated the bulkiness of them as well.

 

So I got the AF62's. I liked them. Love the design. However, I listen to audio at the gym, and it doesn't block out any of the outside sound. Since I listen to sales training sometimes, I really need to be able to block out the outside noise.

 

So now I am thinking, I have to have noise cancelling. Looking at the UE9000's. ANy suggestions for anything else? Do any of the Sony's have NC over BT?

Phiaton's BT NC headphones.  They are on-ear, but do a decent job and sound better than the 9000's, especially if you enjoyed the HK's sound.

I cannot recommend the ue 9000 for the gym, way too big and too heavy. They stick out alot on the sides so you would bang into everything near your head, also they are very heavy just bending over they will slide of your head. I love the sound that came out of them when I had them, they were awesome! You should check the plantronics backbeat go 2 i have these, very good sound from an iem bluetooth headset, perfect for the gym.

Like I said my only gripes with them was the bulkiness, weight, and also the buttons were small and too close together not very easy to use...

 

This too regarding the sound.  If the size doesn't get you, the weight will...  They actually weigh more than the HiFiMan HE-560 (also less comfortable). Keep in mind the 560 is a planar headphone...  A light planar, but still a planar.

I can recommend the Harman Kardon BTs for the gym as I can do extreme ab exercises on the pull up bar and slant board and they don't slip. For comparison, my much loved Sony MD 1RBT MK2 does slip, in fact, they fall off?

They definitely will stay put. The issue is that the headband can make noises as you make movements. There is a way to place the headband to avoid this, but if you can't find the proper placement, it is quite annoying.

Yea, I actually have a pair of these. However, they slip out of the ear all the time, just enough to make the bass go away...I use these all the time at the poker table, and they are perfect for that. But when I am on the elliptical, I am always pushing them back in. This is why I started looking for over the ear's.

 

The Phiaton's may be worth a shot, but not excited about on ear...

 

Wish the HK's didn't have that weird headband design. I hate the noise it makes. Took a walk one day in my neighborhood and it was horrible. Every step clanked the headband.

The phiaton is an on-ear that covers the entire ear, it's actually quite comfortable to wear, never had any issues with it.  Due to its size and its close-back nature, it isolates fine without ANC, but that option does help quite a bit.  The only issue that might creep up is stability.

How is the Phiaton regarding it falling off or moving out of place when doing gym or other work? How would they compare to the HK BT and AKG K845BT in that regard?

Anyone ever try the Purity Pros? Apt-x and NC....

In order from best to worst regarding this: HK Phiaton AKG. It really depends on what you're doing.

IMO, this deal on the Sony at 150 and HK BT at 97 dollars at those prices are super deals for the money.
