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: If Sennheiser redesigned the cord and the extension cord, this product would be worthy of 5 eggs. Unfortunately, a small amount of hassle steals it's pride D: However, if you are the kind of guy who prefers to listen to .wavs and .flacs over MP3s, and who needs some earphones that won't fall out during excercise, the CX680i is for you. There isn't another combination of audio quality, build quality, and use on-the-go that can be found at this price point.
Pros: The sound is definite and clear, stereo channels are seperated perfectly, listening to the human voice and any guitar work is dreamy. If you aren't listening to audio files with a higher quality then MP3s, now is the time, you won't miss a detail while wearing a pair of these beasts.
Cons: The extension cord. I can tell you without a second to think that any problems with using the 680i is centered around the extension cord. First off, the cord attached to the earphones themselves is way too short unless you have your listening device attached to your arm. This fact means that 90% of any consumer using these earphones WILL be using the extension cords, which can cause troubles. First off, the entire slack of the extension cord is placed after the right ...
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
Pros: Great fitting headphones. As a matter of fact, these are the best fitting headphones I have ever owned. I just went for my daily workout and there was not a need for adjusting them and they sound great. Not to mention they block a lot of ambient noise so you dont have to turn your mp3 player up as much.
Cons: They really need to offer these headphones with a black cord.
Summary: whenever these go out on me i will purchase another if available just cant go wrong when they don't fall out.
Pros: They do what everyone's saying they wont fall out and for me that's huge there's nothing worse then having to re adjust ear buds every min. Sound quality is very good for ear buds by far they stomp my skull candies and the ear fin are genius
Cons: the rubber cord tends to catch on things easy and the length is very long but with the clip it takes care of that.
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: When I was looking at buying these it was these or the Bose ear buds. I had already gone through two pairs of the Bose ones, but one side kept dying. I thought it was due to sweat getting into them and as the Sennheiser's were water proof I went with them. If the Sennheiser had more bass I would give them a 5 egg-amazing review.
Pros: No problem with them falling out during any type of exercise. Sound quality is solid with no problems at any level. They allow enough sound in that you can still be aware of whats going on around you. The little "diaphragm guards" are nice and actually do a good job of protecting the ear phones. The bright colored cable is extremely nice as I have a tendency to lose things.
Cons: There is a bit of cord rattle that can be distracting if you listen to your music at low levels or if you're listening to a talk show. There is not much bass, even with my iPod's bass booster on. The cable, without the extender on, is pretty short, so if you don't attach your music device to your arm, you could be out of luck.
Summary: I would definitely recommend to those tired of wasting $20-$30 on decent headphones to work out in, and finding out in a few weeks they die.
Pros: The names lives up to the expectations. So far these are the only headphones I have found that will survive me sweating all over them and so on and so forth. They sounds great, last, and don't slip from the ear very often if set up with the right size fin/bud. They come with everything you will need for these little guys including what you need to clean it and a nice little pouch for everything you have.
