Good Gym Headphones

S.A, Amazon
17 August 2014
  • Summary: These lasted me 1 year 6 months, they still work at the moment except the remote received its last press, the other area which failed was extender piece which was useful since I changed it the headphones are still operational except for the remote. The ear fit is good the ability to tighten and loosen helps ensure that they stay on your ears. The little mesh bag was good helps the earphones dry easier.

Good product but misinformed

demetris, Amazon
31 October 2012
  • Summary: The product overall is good but in the description, while it says iPhone remote control, well IT DOESN'T WORK EITHER WITH IPHONE 4 OR WITH IPHONE 5. Very disappointing since this was the reason i bought those ear-hooks, which i found expensive compared to other solutions.

Disappointing Fit

crimson, Amazon
3 June 2012
  • Summary: These headphones were bought primarily for use at the gym due to their over-ear fit in the hope that they would stay in place where other in-ear headphones had fallen out. Having now used them for a couple of weeks I am left disappointed with their fit meaning that their sound quality suffers also. Their over-ear style means that the headphones never fall completely off my ears but conversely they never stay completely wedged in there either.

Design Faulty

Useless Article, Amazon
6 September 2011
  • Summary: I can't comment on sound quality, as they broke on 2nd time used. The extremely thin black plastic split, where it met the red plastic on the earbuds. It takes the slightest pressure applied when fitting different silicone caps. Not sure if this is an inherent design fault, or just a manufacturing mistake missed by quality control.

Useless

Run_79, Amazon

  • Summary: After the first use there is now only one ear piece working. They are quite big and don't fit properly. I've bought 2 pairs of earphones in the past few months and both have been completely useless. I really need to have my music as I'm training for a marathon; finding it hard to get into the 'zone' when I have an earphone falling out as soon as a little sweat enters the equation.

  • Summary: I already have the slightly different version of these without the inline volume and I can say without question these stay in your ears perfectly. I run upto 50 miles a week and they stay in place and are comfortable. Bass reponse can be a little weak if you don't push them in well and use the wrong size buds but otherwise they are excellent and robust. Well recommended.

Headphones are headphones ... Right?

RozziD "Rose", Amazon
22 June 2011
  • Summary: Headphones are headphones ... right? They all deliver sound from a sound source to your ears, get tangled and are meant to fit all ear sizes and shapes. And if that was all we had to judge these ear phones on then these would be just the same as any other .. but they aren't .. and for several reasons ! These headphones are specifically designed for gym users & runners, and come with features that mean they excel in those areas. Had a particularly sweaty work out or run ?

Big disappointment (for me)

R. Stevens "TechAddict", Amazon
16 June 2011
  • Summary: I was chuffed to get a new pair of sports earphones since my hardy iPod `phones had finally died (maybe after having been forgotten in my shorts in the wash once too often, something these wouldn't worry too much about) after being used at our local gym. However my happiness did not last long.

Good Headphones

Brian, Amazon
22 May 2011
  • Summary: These headphones have been designed with the sporty iPhone user in mind , and it's obvious that a great deal of thought has gone into it. The headphones are light , well made ,and have some good little details , like adjustable earhooks , sweat proof , but can be washed clean ,and have antibacterial ear caps - goodness knows how they work!

Stable fit, disappointing sound quality

Rosey Lea, Amazon
22 May 2011
  • Summary: These are earhook sport style headphones with hands-free mic should you wish to chat on your IPhone whilst out running (!) I use an IPod Touch or Nano whilst jogging and get annoyed by my earphones falling out or cable pulling, so I was eager to try these. Unfortunately the best I can say is 'they're okay, but overpriced'. (Being an Android phone user, I can't comment on how well these headphones work with an IPhone, only MP3.
