How are these for running/misc. exercise?
They would work pretty well, since they come with a variety of little ear cups to make sure you can get a good fit. However, they're just regular hanging ones -- so the around the ear trick may work to keep them in place better. I've used them while running.

These get the "best exercice headphone" pick at the wire cutter:

But I've never tried them.

Thanks. You know what, looking at those, I feel like I may have worn those before for like a psychology study and I remember them being quite comfy. I may have to invest in a pair.

Surprised Grado hasn't come up for open cans. I enjoy my SR80s ($100).

Maybe I'm weird, but I can't live without clear, sparkling treble when I listen to music. My Klipsch bookshelf speakers with horn tweeters are among my most prized possessions. More sophisticated audiophile speakers and studio monitors that tend to roll off the highs just suck all the joy out of music, for me at least. I also remove the front grill from any speakers I use to reduce attenuation of the high frequencies, and notice a significant audible difference in doing so.

Anyway, Grado seems to be the closest thing you can get to that style when it comes to headphones. I still think Klipsch speakers sound better than Grado cans, though. Grados are a little too "gravel-ish" in the mids, and definitely lack bass. However, I still prefer them over the Beyers and AudioTechnicas I've tried.

Yeah I normally prefer the around the ear ones for running, but I never like the ones I end up buying. I might get those ones you linked though. Thanks!

Does anyone have any recommendations/suggestions on wireless music systems? I've looked at Sonos obviously, and while I'd love to go that route it'd cost me close to a grand (although, I am curious to hear thoughts if anybody has any).

Basically, I'd most simply like to be able to play anything off of my iPhone on speakers in every room in my apartment - anything else (different songs in different rooms, integration with PC libraries/Spotify, etc.) would be a bonus, but not necessary.

You'll regret not doing Sonos if you do any other system.

Can you have mixed playlists (ie. playlists with Spotify and iTunes songs)?

Just got a pair of Sennheiser PX 100-IIs last week and I'm really liking them so far. Mostly getting use from my iPhone (podcasts) and computer (TV shows) and they feel pretty great for that.

Anyone store their headphones on a hook under their desk? Any recommendations?



Like this idea ... but don't trust an adhesive with my headphones ... without a screw/anchor system ... I'd be very worried to try this specific product.

Absolutely LOVE the sound of the Grado's I've tried out ... but they were really uncomfortable in my longevity tests.

I'm with you about treble, it's why I lean toward Klipsch and Beyerdynamic ... I find the treble more pleasing to my ears.
