I have the Jaybird X2s and I really like them a lot. Audio quality is far superior to the Apple earbuds (wired). Only thing I wish I had done was get the Jaybird Freedoms instead of the X2. Freedoms have a separate app that allows custom audio configuration. I didn't know this until I bought the X2s and had worn them. I'm an audiophile, so I always want great audio. I wish they held a little more secure in my ears, but it still works well.

Beats Studio Wireless!



Main benefits:
- Wireless
- Over-ear (I don't like the music in the gym) ;-)
- Excellent sound
- Long battery time
- Function buttons on the ear-shell
- Acoustic Noise Cancelling

Yep quite pleased with them! Happy shopping!

Noise canceling is a game changer. Won't go back.

I listen to heavy metal when I lift.

Drums - dropped weights

Vocals - people grunting
Lead vocals - people maxing

Just got the Jaybird Freedom Wireless today. So far they feel great and the sound is brilliant. Haven't hit the gym with them yet, but I have good faith in them.

You are going to love these. I picked up a pair of them during the holidays when Best Buy had them on sale for $99. Starting to like them more than my Beats Wireless.

I'm using my Alclair audio custom molded in ear monitors because they rock! They cancel noise, fit perfect, and the sound quality is unbeatable. Yes there expensive but they're worth every penny.

I sure hope I will. Played around a little with them tonight and fitted the right size foam plugs on each side and such. Apparently I am lopsided, one ear needs large plugs and a medium fin, one a medium plug and a small fin.

Still need to figure out what method works best for cable management. I have the two little cable discs now, not the clasp, that looks uncomfortable...

I found it more comfortable with the clasp, I attache it to my shirt so it doesn't bounce around. Wire wrapped behind my neck.

Doesn't the shirt pull on the cord and the clasp scrape your neck? I'll bring both to the gym...

If you use the clasp, do you not use the discs?

No it doesn't. I clip it to the top of the shirt color behind the neck. I don't use the discs.

Beats wireless. They stay in and no wires to get in the way.

I had the Beats Tour 2's and they were descent. After they broke I wanted to get headphones that would take more gym abuse (Lifting Chalk on them, Water spills, them getting thrown around). Basically something more durable that I wouldn't have to worry about them breaking. I ended up ordering some Aukey wireless headphones off amazon. I spent around $40 with shipping and could not be happier. They sound great, and they take a beating.

I have the original Jaybird BlueBud X and I use the "discs"

I have been using these headphones for about 4 years now and still love them. With the discs there is no bouncing of the cord and it fits tight enough you can set it and forget it.

My first pair stopped working (from sweat I think) about 2.5 years after buying them and after contacting Jaybird they sent me a replacement for free even thought they were well out of warranty. Highly recommend this brand.

Bose quiet comfort 35. Like the noise cancelation but I wouldn't use it for something like deadlifts as they don't fit tight enough around my head and can slip off. Sound quality is superb though.

I just use some cheap $30 Sony earbuds I picked up at Best Buy. Sound decent, fit well.

JVC ones that go over your head, I find earbud ones just fall out as soon as I start doing any kind of exercise. I don't spent a lot of money on headphones as I'm not particularly fussy about amazing sound quality or things like that.

I had the Powerbeats, but I like those more for actual running.

Had the solos, but honestly the studio beats wireless are the best, especially when the beat drop when I'm listening to ASAP mob. And it's noise cancellation so I don't get distracted from side noise.

I've got a pair of MDR1000x by Sony, but will most likely return them soon and order the Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNC when they become available. I haven't tested the Sony for lifting, but I just don't feel that they are meant to be taken into the gym, although their active noice cancellation and touch functions are pretty neat .
