walkman issues for big arms
I have a problem with my walkman. My arms are too big to wear it on my upper arm while I workout b/c the armband won't close. ATM I wear it on my forearm, but the wires get in the way a lot pulling the earpieces out of my ears. Is there a walkman or mp3 player out there that comes with a larger armband? If not, do you know which stores have larger armband accessories for walkmans? If I have to, I will buy a whole new walkman b/c I need my music to lift, but my ears are starting to take a beating here.

I've tried the hip clip, but I don't workout with shorts that have pockets and i knock it off my hip too often. Its more comfortable for me to have it on my arm IMO. Maybe its an ego thing too, but I really prefer having it on my arm. Makes me look bigger When I could wear it on my upper arm, I ran the wires inside my shirt too. Worked great, but with it on the forearm there is too much wire outside the shirt to run it up inside it and still do the job.Originally Posted by BryanFury

Lots of duct tape?...Originally Posted by beachbrat79
Seriously though, I've never seen larger bands for sale. Only option I can see would be to make your own.

that would take care of one area to keep shaved. I've seen some big guys with armbands that fit before. I guess I should have asked them when I had the chance. oh wellOriginally Posted by BryanFury

Wear it on your schlong and run the wires up your shirt.
Just don't adjust the volume or change stations often. People might look at you funny.

once again the armband is too smallOriginally Posted by diamonddave
darnit! this started out as a serious question and see where ya'll have taken me?!? Has anyone ever seen somewhere to buy larger armbands? Or has anyone bought a walkman/mp3 player that has a nice large armband already on it so mine won't go flying off the second my arm flexes?

what kind is it? i have a sony walkman that plays xtrac3 format on the minidiscs... i also have a sony-brand armband holder for it; and if you have arms THAT big, you might wanna get a smaller mp3 player and just put it in your pocket

I got a Sony that plays Atrac-3 format too, cool ****, aye?
Use a sweatband, like what you'd wear on your head.. When I had my MiniDisc, I jimmy'd my case with a Nike headband to fit my upper arm.. Takes some ingenuity, but it works..
