A gym friend is looking for a set of decent headphones or ear buds for the gym, anybody have any suggestions? He's currently looking at beats by dre because of a quick charge feature. I told him beats are shit but the quick charge feature is a huge selling point to him. He's open to suggestions. Price point should be around $200 CAD.

The reviews aren't the loveliest but MKBHD on YouTube practically loves these things and vouches for their quality.

I was going to recommend the same. They are going to be going on sale tomorrow down to $130 (at least where I work).

Most of all of the bad reviews come down to either comfort or battery issues. As for comfort, some people do not know how to wear them let alone given the fact that headphones are always hit or miss with comfort. As for battery, you can easily send those back in for a replacement.

the ones I read were that it was really poor quaility construction and people were having them just stop working by moving around. it had nothing to do with comfort. I didn't even read a review about that.

Odd, because the second critical review is about comfort.

Meh could have just skipped over it. I was just jumping around. I wish I could find ear buds that fit my ears. They always fall out

True. I have literally never found ear buds that will stay in without some kind of back of the ear clip. I am interested what Travis friend thinks of these if he gets them.

I am going to get these just to see how they are for the price. The reviews are pretty good.

They are pretty bad.

Not sure if its bluetooth compression or the headphones. They are muffled and so bass heavy that all songs lose any detail. It is like FM radio. Movies and youtube weren't terrible. They aren't too uncomfortable so i am sure most people will be fine with them for most things. They are made of a really soft rubber and come with multiple sizes of tips, a charging cable and a case.

Probably the minimum anyone should spend on bluetooth headphone. Hopefully it is worth it spending 100+.

I have not used another pair of BT headphones so I cannot compare to anything but wired sets, and they lose to my LG stock phone earbuds by a fair margin. They do beat the Captain America Avengers toy set I gave my nephew though.
