    I have a sprint model g3, And I was curious if anyone had suggestions for solid headphones... Currently I have a pair of Iphone ear buds which are OK.
    Only use Pandora, spotify for music, which I have found the volume levels are really low.
    Any help or suggestions??

    I currently use the Bose in-ear. Running, cycling, and doing yard work all had no issues with comfort at all. Nothing to wrap around the back of the ear so no discomfort there. Stays in all the time. Only fell out on me when I'm on the treadmill and the phone calls off the stand but that's it. They cost a bit more but we'll worth it.

    Comfort is important... But sound wise the headphones are not doing it for me... Maybe I should pull out my creative Zen And rock that again...

    There are two that I'm currently using:

    First:
    BlueBird BlueBuds X Sport Bluetooth Headphones - Up to $130 on Amazon
    Comply T-500 Isolation Earphone Tips - $15 on Amazon

    • As I sweat they do start to fall out a bit, so I end up pushing them back in a few times.
    • They are a bit heavy, and tend to pull to the side of the power/volume where the electronics are.
    • They sound great.
    • They feel great, but I think it's the Comply Tips
    • They do not get in the way of movement which is why I like them when working out.
    • They are very pricey. Especially when you add on the earphone tips.
    • One last thing, they do not stay on your shoulders when they aren't in your ears. It's easy to lose a pair if you don't pocket them when not wearing them.



    Second:
    LG Tone Pro HBS-730 - $50 on Amazon (I wish I had waited until the TONE INFINIM were released)
    Comply T-500 Isolation Earphone Tips - $15 on Amazon

    • These sit on your neck and do not leave your neck. It's very difficult for them to fall off when not in use.
    • However, having said that ^^^, I don't like these headphones as much especially for working out, because they sit on your neck and you can feel them the entire time.
    • The earphones do stay in my ears better because they do not pull down like the BlueBuds since they only have a tiny cable.
    • Also, the LG headset is cheaper and they have a retractable cable one, if you want it (which I want). That would be the TONE INFINIM.


    So, what's my prefered set? I still grab the BlueBuds. I really like them and would rather wear them then the LGs. Also, they aren't as noticeable as the LG, but there are cons. There are no perfect headphones.

    Word of Warning: I did purchase 2 pairs of Shures (SE215 & 515) a few years back. One for me and one for wifey. Don't! Avoid these like the plague! They are extremely expensive and very uncomfortable and the cable doesn't last longer than a few weeks.

    HANDS DOWN, the best headphones I've ever used for working out are the Jaybird Bluebuds X mentioned above. I also use the Comply Isolation Earphones from Amazon.

    Outstanding audio fidelity for being Bluetooth, oustanding battery, and very lightweight. Paired with the Comply foams, this combination will push any other set out there....even at triple the price.

    Also, Best Buy will price match amazon. Bonus.
