Recommend me some exercise headphones

Apple headphones last 3 months before I kill them with sweat.

Must be in ear style, decent sound, not stupidly expensive.
I like the apple's sound, just don't last.

Wired or wireless?


Wireless, I found these to work well for me:

Mine are the older version that they don't seem to make anymore.

Its just a consumable, buy cheap ones and replace them as soon as they start giving problems, that's what I do

wired I had good luck with skullcandy. You can get them cheap on sale and they are low profile enough to fit under helmets, hats, etc. They come with tips to make them fit.

Wireless I've been using Jaybirds, but not totally blown away. The cable is too sticky and rips out when you turn your head. If the bone conduction ones work for your head they have a lot of advantages - more sealed, can't fall out and keep your ears open so you can hear whats going on around you.

I've been using the older version of these for 10+ years now. I like them for running cause they don't fall out.

Good timing. I just killed my Apple headphones today. Microphone just stopped working and the right ear bud stopped playing today as I was mowing my grass.

Ordered the Tao Tropic set as soon as I read the reviews.
Never had noise canceling anything, so I'm looking forward to seeing if they can reduce the mowers noise.

I've been eyeing the bose sport, supposedly water resistant.

Not noise canceling but I love my other bose products; the headphones just aren't durable enough for daily 2 hr sweaty gym sessions.

Just for knock around headphones I use skullcandy like these. I find the wireless way easier to use with an iPhone

I got a free pair of AirPods that have been ridiculously awesome. They sync so quickly and just work. I haven’t had trouble with sweat damaging them while working out, riding the bike, or hours of yard/farm work when it’s 100į out but they are allegedly not sweat/water resistant.

When I was researching I think I found Jabra has some sport models that are water resistant. Wireless is definitely the way to go IMO.

These are the wired ones I use:

They are pretty great and affordable but they are USB-C. Really good noise cancellation for ear buds

Yurbuds. Made for sports and the rubber pieces that go in your ear can be replaced with different sizes.

Wireless, aftershocks (or however they spell it that’s cool) are going to be good.

I don't like the airpods for working out/riding tractor, etc The sound isn't good/high enough

I like powerbeats3 for the sound and use them the most, but I'd rather have the "cord" that connects them together behind my neck but it sticks to the skin too much. They last at least 6 hours but they will start to hurt around the ear

the in-ear wired beats are good for sound also, but I can't do wired for working out because no one's cord is long enough from my pockets.

I've gone back and forth about trying these, but just haven't pulled the trigger.

It's AfterShokz.

I bought a pair of knockoff bone conduction for like 35$ that work pretty damn good. Might invest in the aftershokz now that I know the bone conduction isn't totally worthless.

welcome back

I'm not big on bone conduction for fidelity of music, including tight bass

Bose wireless suck

Well, don't buy the bose wireless earbuds.

Bought a pair, cranked them up and could hear people walking by; as in I could hear their footsteps. Immediately returned them.

I love the sound of the apple wired buds, just need them a little louder and sweat proof.

Why is this so hard?

Well I am out, not that I really think they are worth what they cost. And their customer service was trash for me. I had to have custom IEM because of very weird shaped inner ears that can't use ear buds.

I use these everyday, some days for 10+ hours. Normally just have it on the radio, but can run songs on the phone and make calls too with the Blueteeth.

https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-...0824073&rt=rud

The ones that stick in the ear hurt my ears after a few hours, plus end up pushing sawdust, dirt, etc in my ears and I have to get them douched out at the Dr's.

I'm on my 2nd set of these:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

No worries mountain bike riding in August (aka, sweaty AF bastid ) and awesome for just general use. Use them at the gym a ton. But I've been miserably nasty ass sweaty and these don't seem to mind.

It does come with a wee little wire clip. I highly recommend this as it helps keep the headphones in place. But once you get it how you want it, tape it down. But they isolate noise decent enough and have decent enough sound quality. I do notice bass hits with these and I'm like, that is nice to have.

When running, I don't get cord slap and static that way. Which is very nice.

Battery is very good and uses the same charger as my android phone. They look EXACTLY like a Dre Beats headset. So I'm thinking these might come out of the same factory in China. Or their cousin.

I'm on my 2nd set as I was using them in my old rover at Uwharrie this weekend. I dropped them and they got run over . I literally ordered my replacement set the next time I had 4G.

So yes, I recommend these.
