    Do you use your BB for MP3 at the Gym?

    Advertisement



    Not sure if it would be a good idea. I now use a Shuffle, but since I got a Memory Card for my Curve, was wondering if I should start using it instead.

    Anybody use their Curve at the Gym as an MP3 player? Anything you noticed? Like the Ear piece cord being too short, almost smashing the BB with a weight plate, dropping BB while changing songs with shaky hands, etc., etc.

    I use my Curve as my mp3 player while working out. I couldn't imagine using a wired headset while doing it though.. what if it yanks out or gets tangled on something? I use my Motorola S9 headset. Sound is excellent and on each side of the headset is controls for controlling phone and controlling media. I'd highly recommend getting it.

    I just don't go to the gym. Saves me the trouble

    I use my Pearl when I run, but like StacyRVC said the "sound isn't that hot". I think I'll just get a shuffle for running.

    I used my Pearl for a a few months while i was riding my bike to work... i was completely happy with the sound and quality of the whole expirence. Definately loved it......

    I know t-mobile has a case for the pearl, not sure about the curve... (not sure who its by) but its called the Mobile Chaos Arm/Ankle band Pouch.. you can put your BB in it and strap it to an arm or ankle for workouts so you dont have to worry about dropping or losing it...

    ^^ for the pearl

    i googled it and came across several that are listed for the pearl...i can't look at them currently... but it looks like belkin makes one that will fit the curve..

    Can someone please explain to me how an iPod shuffle produces better sound than any other portable mp3 player? I have yet to listen to a portable device that has adequate bass response. A Pearl is fine for listening to music when working out.

    I actually use my curve's mp3 player at work. I plug it into the system at teavana where I work. I have zero problems with it.

    I use mp3gain to normalize all of my tracks and it has the same quality of sound as an ipod classic (witch is what we use at work)

    I just turn shuffle on and listen to some great tunes! It sure beats hearing "buhdda bar" all day

    Re: Do you use your BB for MP3 at the Gym?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I often use my BB as an MP3 player for those times (like wheb working out) when a large, bulky player will get in the way. My player is an Archos video/MP3 player, which is great for listening on the train, etc., but my BB comes in handy when I need something smaller.

    Yes I use mine at the gym. I have a Seidio Hybrid case so it is somewhat protected. Besides, if you have been going to the gym for a while, you know how to handle weight so that you are not bumping against yourself. Plus, email and text while your listening to music and working out. What could be better?
