    I know there's a good chance this topic has been discussed before, but I couldn't find it & can't use search function (yet). I do plan on buying a sub/av after christmas, but the bills are really rolling in now, so I'm gonna hold off for a month or 2.

    Anyways, what MP3 player(s) do you use for the gym?

    Is there anything better than the iPod shuffle? (that's what I currently have in orange). I'm thinking of getting another cheapo - maybe a Sandisk or something.

    I have a Sony Ericson W580i phone, has an FM tuner and MP3 player capabilities. It rocks.

    ipods are the most popular for a reason (but the headphones suck on them so get something aftermarket)

    I have used 2 MP3 players, and Ipod Nano, and an Ipod shuffle (the new tiny one) and the shuffle is by far the best.

    You just cannot beat how small it is.. It just clips onto your pants/shorts and you never realize it's there. I can even play basketball games with it on and have no problems.

    The one downside is that the most it comes with is 2 gig's but I have my 60gig Ipod for all my songs. I only have maybe 30 workout songs which barely dents the 2gig's in the shuffle.

    Im all for using other mp3's, but nothing is as small and easy to bring around the gym than an ipod shuffle.

    Not smart enough to be a nerd.

    GEEK would be more accurate.
