    Headphones and Earbuds..


    k I have gone through about every pair from $20-80 I can find in local stores. Not one pair lasted longer then 3 months, maybe I am too rough on them or something but I really do not do much to them I just sweat a lot when I lift and do cardio. Any suggestions on what to try next guys?

    I have been considering these "Shure SE215" Shure Americas | SE215 Sound Isolating but im not sure I want to drop 100 on another pair that wont last 3 months again :/

    Bluetooth speakers might help, they're a little thicker typically and no wire that can get all twisted and screwed up.

    I have a pair of Jaybird Bluebuds that I've grown to love. They're durable, the sound is unmatched by any other pair of bt headphones I've had, and the charge lasts forever.

    I have been looking at this pair as an option I just keep hearing about short battery life with the Bluetooth sets. And I use mine all day long between work and gym. How long does the charge last you?

    I have the monster DNA's they're legit. Better than the beats IMO. I've also had them for over 6 months easily and they are still like brand new. I'm also incredibly hard on headphones

    I had to get them for studying in noisy spots. I use them for running and the gym now also they sound amazing. I'm an audiophile. Plus, if I don't think I'm worth 200 dollar headphones who will?!

    A full charge lasts me about 10 hours.

    Mine were $166, and worth every penny for me. Fighting with cords, dealing with sweat malfunction, or being able to hear ANYTHING outside of my music is of great annoyance to my intolerant ass.

    Money well spent for me.

    I've broken many... My longest lasting (>1 year so far) is JLab j4. Kevlar coated flat wires. They are ear buds so not sure if that's your style or not. Got my wife a pair also and it takes a lot for me to endorse a product. These have proven. PS. $40

    But I always get a kick out of seeing dudes with full size Beats working out....

    i used to go with skullcandy's but the quality is terrible and they last a month or so...then i had beats by dre buds...they broke and i sent them back , the second pair also broke but i was buying a house at the time and i didn't send them back in time to get another replacement

    now i've just been using a pair of $50 sony's, they are ok but the beats were the best, the flat wire and the fact that they will replace them if they break is awesome

    Sol Republic are good quality, excellent sound, a year warranty that they actually stand behind, and stay in the ears really well. They are my new favorite.

    If you want some nice ones that last check out Sony Sport. They have really good reviews. But I'm the same my earbuds only last 2 months tops. My ears get too sweaty and it ruins them

    You still got raped. Beats by Dre are nothing more than expensive plastic jewelry. Even at $50 there are many that blow beats out of the water in terms of build and sound quality.

    I buy the $20 Sony ones. Not the greatest sound quality, but really durable. ran them over once, left outside in a snowbank once, and have been through the wash 2x so far. Still work just fine! I've had them little over a year.

    Nobody buys beats for their sound. They look cool, come in cool colors, and you can match them to your gym outfit.

    i had the powerbeats and they only lasted like 6 months.

    I bought a 20 dollar bluetooth pair of chinese earbuds I've had for a while now, totally worth it

    but i liked the sound? especially in my phone that has the beats built in....then again i had the ear buds and not the dj style, i couldn't use the dj style unless i had the studio ones, the small version doesn't work for me

    i tried the studio beats in the gym for a few weeks. they made my ears way too hot. those things are like insulated earmuffs, but they do sound awesome.
