    I would like to buy some new headphones for the gym, any opinions on best headphones for under 20.00? I am not bothered by brand.

    I've used these a lot (nearly daily!) since I got them 2 years ago (they had a black version then)

    Cheap, great passive noise cancelling and sturdy enough to handle being wound up and shoved in a pocket daily.

    If you want something a bit more substantial and over budget, i got these around the same time :

    Nice over the ear headset with detachable cable, so you can replace it easily, nice sound quality and passive noise cancelling. Sturdy build. (My nephew borrowed these last year as he lost his last set of headphones and he loves them!)

    Or if you want something a bit different try bone conducting headphones:

    Have a pair like this but they are not as comfortable for me (it's true what people say about me, I've a big head!!) lol These fixed band bone conductive headsets are slightly too small for my head so it gets sore after 10-20 mins of use.

    Headphones or earphones?

    If headphones, and you can push the budget a little, Sennheiser's HD series are exceptionally good for the price, good sound quality, really comfortable, and very sturdy.

    Thank you very much Sol, food for thought. I had a pair of Bose uber somethings until I hoovered them up so just looking for a 'daily' pair!

    Not sure about the bone conducting set but will have a read and make a decision before the weekend
