I normally don’t go with on-ear headphones when I travel since they tend to be huge and a space hog. But since I got an Urbanears Tanto before (which was already discontinued), I didn’t mind since it was light yet has really distinguishable sound quality. Unfortunately, that one got lost in one of my trips. Then a Marshall Major FX landed on my hands as a christmas gift. Who am I to refuse such a good looking headphones? I still have my portable earphones with me but I managed to use this on my travels as well. Marshall already has the latest Major II model out but the classic Major, considered as the original is still widely available.
Music gets me into the groove of my workout. When running it helps me synchronize my pace with the beat and at the gym, it really helps shut out some outside noise especially of people just yapping around and not really working out. I have several earphones I use, the regular ones which I listen with for that much needed sound-trip and another one for active purposes. The Philips ActionFit Sweatproof In-Ear Headphone fits the latter and with a good budget tag to boot.
