    Over Ear Headphones at the Gym?

    Hey guys i'm looking to buy some over the ear headphones, namely these:



    http://shop.v-moda.com/p-121-crossfade-lp.aspx

    Anyone have experience with over ear HP's and their reliability in the gym? I'm tired of throwing $20-$40 in the toilet every 4 months on earbuds that just tangle, fall out and eventually tear or wear out from sweat soak, so I'm thinking over ears should work better.

    Will be using with iPod Touch, PC, etc...

    meh waaay to bulky imo. some kids at my uni gym wear the big beats headphones and i think it looks dumb, but its all personal preference. ive been using one pair for a couple years now:
    http://www.amazon.com/Rocketfish-Hig.../dp/B002V5OYHC

    although i bought mine from best buy way cheaper couple years back same model and everything. bluetooth so no wires ever get in my way and has volume/playback controls and built in mic so u can take calls if someone calls u mid workout

    Get ksc75 koss headphones ASAP, brah
    They wrap over the ears(that's good for during cardio), should last you a while, dirt cheap, sound great!, and they might have a lifetime warranty.

    http://www.amazon.com/Koss-KSC75-Por.../dp/B0006B486K

    For home headphones I have to suggest a pair of grados. Best bang for the buck in home headphones. You can find quite a few better headphones than grados but they often require amps/dac purchases to push them while the grados sound great with any source

    I'm just eyeing the V Modas because they're $179 on Newegg with a $105 off promo code and I have a $15 gift card I got a while back that I need to use, so these will be like $70 with shipping.

    If your in-ears that tear and rip from sweat, you are either buying very ****ty earphones, or your not cleaning them after use.
    Of course they will go faulty if moisture gets into them, that's why you wipe them down with a dry towel or shirt after use.
    The over-ear headphones will go faulty the same way if you aren't taking care of them.

    I have been using my pair of Shure SE310's for over 4 years without a problem. I just made sure to take care of them.

    I've been using these for almost a year now with no problems. I was after something that was sweat proof and these do the job. Sound great too.

    I have these:

    The PX200-ii block out sound more, but they stick out a little more because of the pads and don't clamp as strong as the portapros, but I haven't had a problem with them falling off in the gym. The porapro stays on my head a lot better, but they're open so you can hear other music and noises easier

    They look goofy, but the Sony MDR-XB500's have diarrhea inducing bass and some insane clarity for mid's and low's. Also, the pads on the earphones make it feel like you are laying on a pillow.

    Headphones in the gym look just so impractical and annoying. There’s some really great quality earphones out there for any budget, I would suggest sticking with that.
