Default any clippable player with LCD lighter than the clip?

I'm just curious.. Always looking for a more comfortable workout.. I clip it to the collar of my t-shirt at the gym and it kinda tugs at it. Anyone know of a good solution?

I think Sandisk should really thin out the clip and still retain the LCD screen on its next version.

I just clipped it to my sleeve instead. I tend to move the player around, since the cord can get in the way when doing weights.

If you get a silicone skin for it you could get an armband to hold it in place for your workout......shouldn't cost too much either.

I hear you. Or one that has a 12-inch earphone cord. I don't need the two meters! I need to set it on my collar and not have cord going everywhere.

Armbands are all over the place (elasticized bands with velcro; the Clip just clips to them). The last time I checked, e.g. ebay; pcmicrostore.com. Likewise, silicone cases for the Clip. Often sold as a package. And inexpensive.

New Shure earbuds use a short cord (pretty much what you are talking about), and a removable extender to get the cord down to your waist.

I'm not exactly a gym bunny, and absolutely don't care what my appearance is when I go to work out, but those... seriously... really... hideous! Ugly! Id' be embarrassed to be seen with them!

Besides, it claims it takes only SD, not SDHC. That's a definite deal breaker right there.

Whew- I'm glad you weren't serious! Looks like something from my 1980's AV CLUB!

They would look a little bit better if I did... My inner Laker fan cringes at the thought of putting purple on something horribly bad and thinking that will improve it though. We tried that with Kwame Brown and it didn't go so well...

Yeah, my new headphones are Bulls red.....but the price was right. I suppose at some point I could think about some fresh Celtics green on them

I still buy T-shirts with a chest pocket, a habit that remains from the old days when I smoked. So I clip my Clip to inside of the pocket, along with the worst of the cable slack.

I don't know of any perfect solution...for walking or running you could clip it to your waistband, but with weight work, not so much....that's why I thought the armband might work.
