Summary: I am a very active person and go through ear buds often. These are by far the most comfortable, best sounding and easy to use head phones I have ever used. When running, riding, working, etc. I have not experienced anything but top notch quality. Staying put in my ear and being comfortable has always been an issue for me, not with these.
Summary: These headphones have the most bass compared to any other wired, workout-designed earbuds for the price. No complaints on the sound. They do stay in place, but the feel leaves a lot to be desired. To sum it up, it feels uncomfortable. Here's a youtube review I did on em: [...
Summary: First off... Amazon is displaying an incorrect image of the product. The Monster iSport Strive does not include volume controls, only a single button play/pause/answer function. My guess is the photos are of a pre-production model. A look on the monster site shows the Strive and Intensity (next model up) have different control talk functions. The strive has Controltalk Universal and the Intensity has Apple Controltalk, the difference being the volume buttons.
Excerpt: The quality of the headphones appear to be really high. But the different size earbuds varies too much. The medium is too big - hurts my ears. The small is too small and falls out. The sound quality is among the better I've used for excercise purposes.
Pros: Great Sound, Lightweight
Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Uncomfortable, Wrong Size
Fit was good. sound was good. killer dealbreaker was no ability to pause/stop music on wire

Summary: So I had bought the Intensity and they were hurting my ear because even the small were to tight. These were definatly better and I would go as far as thinking they could use these rubbery tips on those and make a perfect fit for me. however, the biggest dissapointing thing on these was that even though i could lower and raise volume, I could not pause! I understand not having phone functionality, but dont expect me to pause a song by reaching into my gym shorts.
Excerpt: The play/pause button does not work with my ipod touch (can't find the reason). Good sound for the price but not high end. Feels awkward at first in ears but I got used to it and find them pretty confortable after 2 days. Great for jogging: great sound but you're aware of what's going on around you. Haven't tried in a noisy environment (I live in suburbs).
