I’m glad you brought this issue up. I have a raging love hate relationship with headphones when I train.
Chords too short, chords too long, somehow getting looped around my balls which pulls the buds out of my ears AND lifts my satchel…
Buds that pop out when I turn my head or bend over… Etc.
Some day, some company will make an all inclusive listening device that has a shuffle type player built into the plastic arced piece that connects the two earphones and I will by a dozen of them, giving two of them away for charity and keeping the rest of them itemized for playlists such as:
- Mastodon (they get their own shuffle so fuck you)
- 140+ BPM techno/Marching Band Drumlines
- Public Enemy/Outkast
- Classic Rock
- Enya/Alison Krauss/Enigma/Random Monk Chants
Awwww shit I think we’ve got a winning idea hear (get it?), and you fuckers can get in on the ground floor
The headphones I mentioned above will do all that, the only problem I have had with them is sometimes having difficulty syncing.
Edit* it won’t do everything you mentioned, like getting wrapped around your balls but will play music unencumbered.
I was actually going to buy the ones you posted, but it seemed the general consensus was that the audio quality was lacking compared to other bluetooth headphones.
Im still hurting from christmas/time off from work for the holidays (im a contractor so i dont get paid time off) but im thinking next week ill order some of the jaybird freedoms and see how they hold up. Will let ya’ll know how they perform. They seem to be very popular, there are some mixed reviews but ive resigned myself to the fact that im not gonna find anything that fits my needs and is in my price range that is universally considered the best.
I actually thought the sound was pretty good, not as good as my Klipsch, but I wouldn’t expect them to sound as good.
It is funny what you get used to though. In general when out hiking or working around the house ect… I use a cheap pair of rocketfish headphones because they have a 2.5 mm jack which is what my env3 has. My mom bought me a tablet for my birthday and I have been using my Koss or Klipsch headphones with it and when I went back to the rocketfish it was a major disappointment.
