Decent Headphones for Working Out

Doctor Dan, Radioshack
1 April 2013
  • Summary: The Sennheiser HD 229 are decent headphones for working out at the gym, relatively lightweight and comfortable, with good sound quality. I don't like earbuds or other headphones that stick into my ears, so I appreciate the on-the-ear design. They block out most of the ambient noise in the gym, including the overhead music. Visually they look OK to me, nothing special, though I bought them more for functionality than appearance.
  • Pros: Block Ambient Noise, Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
  • Cons: Do Not Fold Up

poor workmanship

  • Summary: I had a cheaper set of Sennheisers that produced much better bass with my i-phone. It looks like they've been discontinued though. Too bad.
  • Pros: not too much.
  • Cons: no bass with i-phone

  • Summary: As compared to some of the overpriced headsets - own a Bose and have tried Beats by Dr Dre, these provide great sound for a fraction of the price.
  • Pros: Sound quality and price
  • Cons: Could be a little bigger or maybe my ears are too big

black and red headphones

Lacey, Argos

  • Summary: Great product, but I got them for my son and beware! If you are male as they are not red. They are actually PINK and because of this I had to use modelling paint as he would not use them until the pink was hidden.

very happy

  • Summary: Bought these for my daughter for Christmas, she love's them. They are very comfortable on the ears which was important as she has them permanently attached. The lead is a good length and she's happy with the sound quality. Most importantly I can't hear any of her music even when she's sitting right next to me.

Not what I expected

Loolabelle, Argos

  • Summary: I ordered this product for my son . When I first saw the headphones in the plastic packaging ( no box) they just looked so cheap and not at all worth the price ! I never got round to the quality of sound etc as I gave them straight back .

Unbelieveable sound quality & comfort!

Cameron, Argos
12 November 2013
  • Summary: Bought for my 14 year old Son for a recent trip & he has never stopped using them! I used them and the sound is truly amazing with lots of detail heard in the background. You can wear them for a long time as the ear pads are so soft & comfortable. Compared my Son's last pair of Beats, these are amazing quality. Now using with iPhone, iPad, PC and even his Xbox, although they do not have a mic. Superb Sennheisers and a very easy pick up from Argos - thanks!
