    I really hate how everyone sits in their own little world and uses headphones as a shield now. Gyms used to be social, anyone who went to them before around the 2012 cut-off will attest to that.

    My last gym played metal and electronic type music. Everyone there was really social and it was a great atmosphere so i never used my earbuds. Current gym is usually empty and blares boomer rock so I’ve always got my music going. I prefer training without headphones but I’d rather be anti social over listening to Van Halen or ACDC

    I don't use headphones and I think they should be banned from gyms.

    In the 80s nobody wore headphones and the gym was a much more sociable experience.

    I used to work out with the Rock N Roll Express and a few Pro Athletes during the offseason.

    That would have never happened if everyone was wearing their Autistic safe space headphones.

    It's the one thing that sickens me about the under 35 crowd.

    At my first gym, people would have thought you were some sort of weirdo/azzhole for wearing headphones at the gym. I remember shortly after the Walkman came out and some guy was using it. People were like, "you don't like interacting with other people, bro? WTF?" In the gyms where you're just cattle, you almost need to these days, but not in smaller, local gyms. The whole appeal of smaller gyms is the interaction you get with other people.

    Having said that I use them most of the time. I recently started taking them off during squats, and I prefer it. I also started to not use gloves, and I REALLY prefer that. A little chalk and I'm good to go. I thought I'd hate the calluses, but it's barely noticeable, and I prefer not having the bulk of wearing gloves.

    That's exactly it man. And when everyone acts like an anti-social ass hole, it makes newbies act in the same way. The worst is when they turn the music up for motivation in big lifts, they can't even motivate themself with willpower haha.

    This, sorta. I use my headphones just about every workout. But often I will not put them in until after my first few heavy sets. Something about no music and being "present" helps me focus and get in the right mind frame for those first few big lifts.

    Running I 1000000% always have music the whole time.

    As to recommendations - there are literally thousands of options. You can go the premium route with Beats or AirPods or Sony noise cancelling...or you can go the Amazon version and find tons of options for $20 or less. Decide how much you want to spend and go from there. I've used them all from super cheap to AirPods, and they all play music. So if you're not worried about the bells and whistles of the high end models just grab a cheapie off Amazon and you'll be fine.

    Nope couldn't imagine working out without headphones especially since I train by myself 99% of the time.

    These are the ones I currently use Skullcandy crusher wireless with adjustable base.

    They're usually £140/$180 but I got them on Black Friday offer for £70/$90.

    One of the best purchases I've made srs.

    Depends on what you're doing at the gym.

    If you're running, jumping and doing very complex movements. Wireless bluetooth in-ear work best IMO. I've had jaybird freedoms, beats, airpods and they all are decent.
    If you're just straight up lifting, over ear with headband works good. I've had bose and skullcandy here.

    Now what do I use? Wired $20 stock apple earbuds cause I've spend damn near couple thousand over the past 9 years of trying all sorts of headphones/earbuds to find out for hard usage and extreme temps they go bad in a matter of time.

    *I hike up an extreme incline during the summer that gets over 100degrees and have lost items due to overheating. Running in the rain has ruined some of em as well. All of these have gotten better over the years but for whatever damn reason I fuk headphones up like none other so imma just stick to cheap ass $20 sets for now.

    I usually have headphones in when walking or running, and if I lift after that then I leave them in. But I lift at home so I'll normally break out a small bluetooth speaker. Only listen to podcasts and YouTube videos though.

    In the 80s nobody wore headphones and the gym was a much more sociable experience.

    I used to work out with the Rock N Roll Express and a few Pro Athletes during the offseason.

    That would have never happened if everyone was wearing their Autistic safe space headphones.

    It's the one thing that sickens me about the under 35 crowd.

    Dead phucking serious.

    I use them in between sets to keep my mind focused
    People complaining the gym isn’t a social place anymore I prefer the people in the gym the small group of people who come in every day then most people I talk to outside it so it’s the best two hours of my day
    Although it is great to talk in the gym and be friendly the reason people go to the gym is to lift weight/cardio
    How are we supposed to focus on improving the next set with the noise going on in the background

    I don't mind being social between sets or before/after my workout. But whenever I get into a conversation mid-set or while I'm trying to grind out some heavy weight, the workout ALWAYS suffers for it. Hard to socialize and hit a PR at the same time. For me at least.
