I am an amateur audiophile and I like listening to music at the gym but have had trouble finding in-ear phones that do not get incredibly uncomfortable after 30-45 minutes of use.
I've decided to take the plunge and purchase a set of custom molded in-ears for the gym, but I'm not sure what route to go. I've been reading reviews and have found a lot of units that I'm sure would fit the bill really well, but I'm slightly nervous about buying something higher end and ruining them at the gym. Is this a well founded concern or am I making something out of nothing?
Some that I'm considering are AE CFR3 and UE4 pro. I also wonder If I should just get a lower end model for the gym in case they get beat up, something like AE C1.
I appreciate any input.
