Looking to pick up some headphones and was wondering if anyone could give some suggestions. I know they need to be sweat-proof (damn near water proof b/c I sweat like a whore in church). They can't be obstructive and need a long battery life.

Since the gym I'm training in is an open space I won't be using my UE Megaboom anymore and need to find a replacement to play my tunes while I toss some steel.

I don't have wireless, they fall out of my ears as it is. I have a pair of beats by Dr. Dre, they are freaking awesome. I can't even hear crying babies on a plane!

I have the in-ear Beats (2) and I love them. I’m a sweat ball and partially deaf so I crank em and they’ve lasted 3yrs already whereas my over ear beats had burned thru 2 pairs in 1 year.

I'm using Plantronics BackBeats now. The sound is really good, they're small and, most importantly, they stay in place. My daughter gave them to me for Christmas and I think she paid under a 100 bucks for them, but they're comparable to ones I've had that cost twice that.

I have the skullcandy wireless ear buds and their over the ear "stereo" style headphones and I love both. Great sound quality and I sweat like a bastard with no issues. I even use the stereo style headphones when I snowblow so they get wet a lot. Half the price of Beats and just as good.
I also know a few people that swear by Gripped (not sure if thats how they spell it) audio wireless headphones. Those too are fairly inexpensive and are made to withstand sweat and such

They are, I spent a long time looking up headphones. I got them on Amazon a few years ago, open box for $65! There is an open box on Amazon for jaybird 2 for $60 right now. Jaybird 3, non prime are going for $70 new as well. After seeing that, I might just upgrade :)
