Excerpt: These headphones work great but they have one major problem, they stop working when they get too much sweat in them. I loved using them to work out but after using them for about six months they stopped working. Apparently they have a defeat that causes them to stop working after they get sweat in them.

Summary: These were my first expensive headphones and when I got them I was actually pretty impressed. They sound pretty good and definitely a lot better then your average headphones that come with a cd/mp3 player.

However, the Bose of today is generally known as overpriced and lacking in sound quality in all of their products. The triports are no exception to this rule.

First of all, these Triports are no better than the $20 dollar headphones you can purchase anywhere like Best Buy, Target, or anywhere else.

It lacks a certain warmth and broadness you would easily get with headphones of the same price range from a wide array of other manufacturers. (I will name alternatives to look into at the end of this article) I have also found the housing directly around the drivers to be weak and break easily. I had quite a guff with Bose itself when...
