I have come to you guys for advice.
I am looking for a decent pair of over the head headphones for the gym Probably looking £20-30.
I think most people who are serious about their music might consider your price range a bit low.
Also it seems many people use in ear or hook over ear phones for running/gym work. Maybe this is causing the deafening silence
My most recent purchase of portable headphones were Philips Fidelio M1's but they were £114, they later came down to £99.
The previous ones I had were Sennheiser PX 200's but that was a long while ago and I think they were about £40, and the latest version is around the £70 mark.
I have just looked on Amazon and the Sennheiser PX 100's are just under £30 but they are open backed and might be unsuitable in a gym due to sound leakage.
The Koss PortaPro's are also under £30 but I'm not sure about the sound quality of those. The reviews are pretty good. Back in the day (1970s) Koss were the headphones to buy.
Don't know if this will help, maybe it will stimulate some debate and you'll get more recommendations!

Yeah I was impressed with them so I picked them up for my sister too at £30 however last week they were £30 on amazon now there £35 which sucks a bit. The reviews seem positive too just a few I did note that said they stopped working but majority seemed fine.
TK MAX were doing some skullcandy earbuds for about £9. Obviously not **AMAZING** but pretty decent for the money!
I am not sure you can really use cans at the gym? wont they fall off all the time?
The other half got these http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 but they are wrap around and I know several rugby players so I can imagine your ears are rather unique indeed.
I use Skull Candy chops, they hook over the ear but you can twist the actual ear piece to the angle that is best for you. They also seem incredibly water proof, i sweat buckets but these have survived being used 3-4 a week for at least 2 years now.
In the end I ordered one of these to test it out (as I also like swimming a fair bit!)
Sony Walkman W273 which is a 4GB MP3 player built into headphones which is waterproof for swimming - going to give it a try and see how I get on!
Will post back as it arrived about 30 mins ago!
