MP3 Player at the Gym?

The cord to my MP3 player must have a split in the wire to the right side only. It cuts in and out. I’ve been looking at this unit…,CRID=2412,CONTENTID=10679

Probably won’t stay on too well for lifting. But I am going to keep looking for something similar as far as the Bluetooth Wireless.

You don’t even have to keep the MP3 player on your belt. It can be in your gym bag in the corner.[/quote]

The geek part of me thinks that is very cool. The other part of me says that’s a lot of money to pay to get rid of a wire.
Also, do you reckon they sell the headsets separately? I don’t know about you, but I have a habit of wrecking headphones, in all manner of interesting ways.


For people with Shuffles, this may help ( You probably wouldn’t wear it in public, but it could be handy :wink:



I have a nylon dog collar to hold my MP3 player on my upper arm. It’s out of the way for almost all exercises. Even a short headphone cord is long enough, and it doesn’t pull the earbuds out of my ears.

You want a nylon collar so you can wash it occasionally. Safety-pin it inside a sock so the clasp doesn’t scratch your washer and dryer.

Headphones are cheap enough, so I experimented until I found a pair I liked (they’re earbuds, FWIW) and I discard whatever comes with the latest player. I have to resolder the plug from time to time, but it’s not a big deal. The cord always fails within an inch of the plug (area of maximum flexing) so I clip it off and resolder it.

I outgrew my first dog collar, which made me very happy.

Big. Old. Pissed off nonetheless.
