Excerpt: I run daily, so I don't mind spending a little extra for headphones. I bought iSport Intensity head phones in February and the cord is frayed at the plug and at the volume control. I would think that for the money I would get more than 3 months out of these headphones. Although I like the sound and the fit, I wouldn't';t buy another pair.
Summary: These earphones are generally quite good for running, but the green ear hooks keep falling off. So much so, that Monster seem happy to keep mailing me replacement ear hooks, but won't admit that this amounts to a serious design failing for the earphones. So if you don't mind contacting the Monster help desk every few weeks when another ear hook has disappeared, go for it. Otherwise, pick another brand.
Summary: I should start off by stating that I do not classify myself as an audiophile, but I do appreciate decent sound quality. I purchased the Monster iSport expecting durable earbuds and decent sound quality at best. What I received in return was neither. These earbuds fit awkwardly within the ear and project the sound quality equivalent to the stock iPhone 5 earpods. On top of the fit and sound quality, the left earbud stopped working within a week.
