Results of Hi-fi 2.0 Mini Poll #1: The gym

  • In our recent Mini Poll, we asked respondents to tell us where they do most of their listening. We intend to use the poll results to help us focus on the solutions that matter most to our readers.

    Asked how frequently they listen at the gym, 359 people responded:

    Daily

     10%

    Often

    25%

    Seldom

    17%

    Never

    48%

    When I go to the gym, I see an awful lot of people with headphones or earbuds on. I wonder how often the people who said "seldom" or "never" actually go to a gym. If you're not listening at the gym because your earbuds tend to fall out, take a look at sport-style headphones, such as the Sennheiser PMX 80 Sport II.

    Please tell us about your experience.

    You may be correct there - I am not trying to pick on the poll - but you have to look at how things can be taken.

    For example, (I didn't answer the poll), but "I never listen in the gym b/c I never go to the gym" is a valid response.

    Just my 2 cents.
