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: Nice and loud, although do still fall out of your ears when running every now and then! Comes with three different sizes of ear buds and the connecting part! Also with a case too! Not too shabby!
Summary: Bought these to replace some other sports headphones that conked out after about 12 uses. So far they've survived a couple of weeks of being sweated and rained on. They fit fairly well (perhaps weirdly well, given they've no hangers or neckband), and STAY IN - at least on me. I've had lots of trouble finding 'phones that stay in when I'm running. As long as the volume control is clipped up, they're fine.
Summary: I bought these because of good reviews and the hope that the ear-buds would both stay in and provide good sound isolation. Both expectations were met. Sound quality is what I would expect at this price point. I have only two comments: I would have preferred a plain - non-neon colour for the cable and accessories; the item is absurdly over-packaged - an outer carton, an inner transparent plastic container, difficult-to-negotiate ways of extracting the phones from the...
Summary: I have trouble with headphones like anyone else. They fall out, they get too sweaty, they tend to hurt after prolonged periods of wearing them, but these have very few of the above. They very rarely, if ever fall out, when they get sweaty you can wash them off with a damp paper towel; the sound quality is brilliant for the money you pay and they don't hurt to wear them for long periods of time. Overall, Im very satisfied with my purchase.
