The BEST sports headphones EVER

Excerpt: I have been on the quest for the perfect sports headphones for YEARS. Ones that won't fall out of my ears, but that give me a sound that runs through my entire body. Monster Strive are those headphones. A SOLID, COMFORTABLE and COMPLETELY secure fit in my ear that doesn't itch or hurt or fall out. So happy with them!
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excerpt: Had these headphones (Monster® iSport Strive In-Ear Headphones with Mic) for less than a month when one the the earbud/speakers stop working. Went to return to Best Buy and was told I have to call Monster for any warranty issues. Huge incovience as oppose to just returning the headphones to Best Buy for a replacement or refund. I paid half the cost for similar style headphones in the past & they lasted much longer then 1 month.
Excerpt: Bought them for my workouts. Wanted sweat proof and allowing ambient sound- so I can hear cars when running/cycling. Sound quality is OK, certainly let in lots of ambient sounds. Some issue with falling out of ear- but manageable. After 4 months of use cord rubber cover (at plug) is torn and bare wire exposed- just a matter of time until these no longer work. Disappointed that a headphone designed for workouts/sport wasn't built better.
Excerpt: I tried Bose and Beats in ear headphones and these are the most comfortable by far. They stay in and don't bother my ears after a couple hours like the others. Sounds is great and look good as well.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stay In And Not Intrusive
Excerpt: Great pair of head phones. Monster has outdone themsleves with affordability and quality. My only complaint is that it takes awhile to get used to putting them in, as the three sizes of iSport fittings do not perfectly fit my ear. Once i was used to them, it was no longer an issue.
Summary: Intro rant
If you are like me then you are probably looking for earbuds that stay in your ear and don't fall out. You want something durable with good sound quality. I was very skeptical of buying these earbuds after contacting the company about their specifications.
