What kind of headphones should I get for work?
    #8709829 - 08/01/08 12:08 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I do landscaping and mow lawns so I am walking around a lot. I have ear buds but they are always falling out. So I need a pair that wont fall off and are preferably noise reducing. I like ear buds but they are probably not good for my situation. So what should I get? What style of headphones wont get in the way when working?  I don't want to spend more than 30 bucks. Any suggestions?

Search for some Skullcandy.

Their earbuds are very nice, and they don't fall out...

I had those TI skullcandies. I have GI's now (because they look cooler, and sound the same)...

I would never pay full price for them though. I had a buddy who stole them from work, I got $90 headphones for $20...I don't think I would ever pay $90 for TI's...so, get the GI's. They are about the same and $30 cheaper.

They don't fall out because of the noise canceling gel around the outside of the earpieces.

The ipod headphones have a hard covering, the skullcandy ones, well this model, has a gel like dough nut that surrounds the bud and molds to the inside of your ear so it don't fall out.

Plus the gel has some noise canceling properties, because sound is merely vibrations in the air, the airtight seal, and the fact that the gel absorbs vibrations, gives it a little bit of noise cancellation.

the cheaper skullcandies that go over your ears sound like shit.  i don't know if their 100$ ones are better.

Sony Wrap-around earphones.

I use these ones when I go longboarding and occasionally when I work(concrete forming), they dont budge and they give a bit of background noise which is good for listening for traffic and just being aware of my surroundings at work, which is essential to any job.

Their like 17.99 in Canada?

skull candies are pretty close to the worst sounding headphones you can get for that price BTW.
