Depends how often you go to the gym. I paid 95 for them. I got to the gym three times a week. That is 60p per use for a year, and they isolate the noise beautifully, do not fall out and sound brilliant. I think its a pretty worthwhile investment, comparable to the B&W P3's I use whilst commuting and travelling.

The best one to use is the shuffle, they're cheap so if they break they're easy to replace, and it has the clip.

Yes, I am. I have the orange, but they are functionally the same.
I shopped around.
Yes, I use them with my shuffle, as stated in my first post.

iPod shuffle hands down.

I clip it on my t-shirt and don't even notice it's there, seriously.

While I'm bench pressing, running on the treadmill, boxing, lifting dumbells.
That's plus the EarPods, it feels like if apple had "gym" in mind when designing the shuffle and earpod lol

Well depends on how much music you want at the gym get a nano if you want to hold more music and have a screen but if you are only going to be doing a few albums or maybe just a few playlists and are ok with syncing to you computer a lot the shuffle is the way to go. I would not recommend using an iPod classic for working out as it would put to much damage to the hard drive.

I use an older iPod Nano (4th or 5th Gen). It is a square on with a touch wheel.

With that said, I recommend an iPod Shuffle. The Shuffle will clip to whatever clothing you are wearing. With the Nano, you need a pocket or you need one of those arm bands.

I've tried resting the Nano on the treadmill and that will work if you are just walking. But if you are jogging, you'll need to have it on you.

I've been using the latest shuffle for about 3 years now.. I plan on getting the nano because it will allow me to listen to fm radio..

Yeah I like EarPods they don't hurt your ears , they stay in pretty good and the dang cable isn't gonna rip easily or one day the left ear goes out and wiggles in and out and even if it did they have a 1yr warranty when new.I yank pull cords on mowers ,weedeaters,sump pumps,blowers etc all day long and my headphone cables always seem to get in there and get pulled one way or the other and these EarPods have held up as where I was going through a low quality pair once a week (seriously I bought 5. Pair at a time) the 6th gen nano has also endured this with no cracks and great battery life it has NEVER went dead on me ( I charge nightly) and it's right here clipped on my jacket while I take lunch break beside a tree in 40 degree weather lol

iPod nano 7th gen

I recommend the iPod nano 7th gen for the gym because it is small and lightweight and has Nike + built in (no need to buy accessories to use nike + unlike all other iDevices that you must buy a sensor for) so it can track your workouts and calories. The iPod nano 7th gen has an easy to navigate user interface vs the 6th gen nano and the shuffle. Also the nano has built in radio(no other ipod has the radio without wifi).

Problems with other ipods...
shuffle- although it is small it can only hold 2GB of songs(not many at all) and is extremely hard to navigate

touch- although the touch can do much more than any of the others, it has no built in nike + support and it is very big when it is in your pocket while running.

classic- like the touch, the classic is big and clunky and doesnt have flash storage meaning if you drop it even once the hard drive will break and you wont be able to use it again.
