Summary: Bad distorted sound. when you touch or the ear piece moves in your ear, it makes a "popping" sound. Bad quality. Rubber pieces are thin and almost non existant. black ear holders are so flimsy they have no support and might as well not be there. Through youtube have discovered that most cx680i headsets on ebay are fakes imported from china.
Summary: Sound quality and fit are as good as advertised really nice feel unfortunately the headphone quality itself is not so good, in my particular case i sometimes the sound cuts off if you touch or shake the connection jack, there's seems to be a connection issue.
Summary: I lift weights, i dont run with these, i dont play basketball with these, i sometimes skateboard with these. Keep this in mind.
Audio quality is great, blocks all other sounds out, and keeps my music in. I cannot hear anyone at my gym, no grunts, no weights dropping, no bad gym music. I love this fact, i can zone in way better. Bass is a little lacking, but cant expect too much from these. Music sounds bets when tight in the ear and has a tight seal.
Pros: Crisp sounds, waterproof, holds in-ear well, many different sizes included
Cons: bright yellow (OK with me), long cord, awkward sound adjust (read below)
Summary: I bought this pair of headset from Amazon earlier this year. The sound quality is very impressive just as advertised (energetic sounding). After a few months of use, the headphone began to fall apart. First was the rounded rubber. Then the plastic part broke, which can be quite annoying sometimes. Due to those two failures, I had a hard time keeping them in my ear during running workouts.
Overall, I am satisfied with the headset.
Pros: Light, secure, good bass, iPod controls
Cons: cheap material, plastic break after 6 months of use
Summary: This really is a great set of in-ear sport earphones. The noise cancelation is really good, I used it while biking and on public transportation too - had no issue with outside noise. The build quality could be a little bit better, but the lightweight plastic construction is needed so they are lightweight.
Pros: Great noise canceling, Sweatproof, Water resistant, Volume control
Cons: No mic, No Skip/Play/Previous buttons, Awkward volume control position, Symmetrical cord
Summary: I bought these headphones 3 years ago and I am still using them 3 to 4 times a week for running and the gym. I have never had them fall out when running or exercising. I use them with my ipod shuffle so have never used the volume extension, only the shortened headphone cable and it works perfectly with a shuffle connected to a work out top.
Summary: I have to say I am disappointed in the sound quality of these headphones. They are tinny & give a poorer sound than my much cheaper JVC ones. They are truly strongly constructed and stay in the ear for sports but that alone is not enough.
