    If so how do you carry it? Is there a belt clip that would work with an existing case?

    I'm joining the gym end of this month and I will be using my iPod Classic as oppose to my phone.

    I just keep mine in my pocket and run the earbud cable up under my shirt. I have an armband, but it never seems to stay put. I spent way more time fixing it than it was worth.

    Eventually I'd like to get a nano, but my phone does fine for now.

    Well...when I actually do make it to the gym I just use my iPhone and keep it in a pocket. I do have a 5th gen Nano but I just end up using my iPhone.

    Yip. iPhone 4 in my pocket, Jaybird freedom Bluetooth headphones in my ears and I'm running, cycling and pushing weights without any hindrance from the onboard entertainment.

    I always do and just keep the phone in my pocket. I use a pair of klipsh s4i's and never have to take the phone out of my pocket. They have volume controls and shuffle capabilities.

    Never have problems

    DO IT!! As far as bluetooth headphones go you'll battle to find better.

    Good job!!!!

    2 cons to consider:

    1.) You get 5 minutes of notice when your battery is drained. It beeps every 30 seconds for roughly 5 minutes then dies.
    2.) Call quality is poor, bordering on unusable. Don't get them if taking calls while using them is a priority!!!!

    Pros:

    1.) Stylish design
    2.) Easy to pair
    3.) 5-6 hour battery life
    4.) Ships with an array of earbuds
    5.) Sweat proof (backed up with a lifetime warranty against sweat damage)
    6.) Excellent sound quality (puts my Shure SE115 to shame)

    I have legitimately never heard of this happening. What could you have possibly done?

    Not so much banned by the gym (I'm sure they wouldn't care) but my GP doesn't want me using the gym right now because I'm at risk of miscarriage.

    Yep, I used to use my 4 year old iPod video but then I started bringing my iPhone 4 to text friends during my two minute rest in-between lifts. I just use my iPhone 4 with my BOSE IE2. Never had a problem with earphones falling out of my ear during lifts/elliptical.


    Have the iPhone 4 in my pocket while earphones go inside the shirt so wires does not get in the way of my lift.
