Best Fit, Amazing Sound
3 weeks ago
Pros: I have done a lot of research and bought a lot of earbud headphones. These seem to be the perfect balance of great sound and comfort for working out.
Cons: I have read reviews about the iphone controls giving out easily, but that is not a function I use and therefore I can not properly evaluate that feature. But, if you are looking for a great set of buds and the iphone controls are not important, then I highly recommend these!
Pros: sound pretty good, lots of different ear plugs for different sizes, different uses, etc.
Cons: volume button/microphone part started shorting out. Can only hear in the left earbud, unless I gently squeeze the volume button, then it sounds fine, until I let go of the button, then it's back to left ear only. Emailing polk audio next to see what's next.
Cons: I purchased this headphone thinking it will fit fine and sound better for my sport activities. But, the problem is this headphone volume reduces and gradually goes to mute for every shake on headphone cable when I run and that annoys me a lot after spending this much money, hoping it will be good one and totally not satisfied at all.
Summary: Sound quality excellent. Durability seems better than average, hard to keep in proper position within ear while very active i.e. jogging. Has extra length cord and Mic option. Because of ear wrap design this can interfere with sunglasses which can cause unwanted sound input during movement. Bose IE2 better for this type of very active application.
Pros: Good sound quality, excellent build quality
Cons: war wrap style adds unwanted sound when combined with sunglasses. Hard to prevent unwanted movement with jogging
Summary: These are the most comfortable pair of sports earbuds that I have ever tried, and I have tried a lot. Though the pause/play/talk/volume/mic button area is far away from the mouth, I have not had any complaints of people not being able to hear me. If you sweat, you should not have this button close to you though. The button is in no way sweat resistant. After only a couple weeks of working out, it started to short out when I tried to turn up the volume.
Pros: Long cord, ok price, most comfortable pair of earbuds I have ever used.
