Summary: Used these for lifting, running, and crosstraining for the past 18 months. Was very happy with the sound compared to other sport headphones. Was more than pleased (read relieved) that they actually stayed in my ears during activity once I tested out a few different fitting pieces to find the correct...
Pros: Decent sound for the price Stay in ear with the correct fittings Very durable
Cons: Might take some personal habit changes to make them work for you Volume control is the weak link in this chain
Pros: This product has preformed as advertised. The ear buds stay put during biking, hiking and cutting the lawn. The frequency response is respectable and with a little tweaking of my iPod I was very pleased with the end result.
Summary: Overall I havent had these very long but from past experiences with other brands so far I am really happy with these Earbuds. The sound quality for the money is out of this world and the comfort as well.
Pros: Great sounding headphones, extremely comfortable in the ear. I really like the volume adjustment and the length of the overall wires. They are stylish, sound great and feel great in your ear, before you realize it you dont even know you have them in your ears.
Cons: Headphone jack/plug could be straight rather than a 45 degree angle or L shape. Otherwise nothing else that I can see thus far.
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 a...
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: 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 n...
Summary: I got these cause i work in a tough environment. (Sawmill) these work as good as our earplugs so i don't even have to turn my iPod up that much.
Pros: Great sounding. Works fine in my iPod touch 4 gen. 3 sets of earbuds 4 sets of fins one without the fins. good length. tough cable. base a treble are balanced pretty well so it doesnt sound like a tiny pc speaker, or a tuner car with 1200 watts running through three 18" 's which often sounds iffy...
Cons: no built in mic. Other reviews stated the mic doesn't work. Duh there is not one. it is made for ipods and iphones. which have a mic.
Summary: I am not a fan of ear bud headphones. I own a pair of eh150's, and 280 Pro's and think they are both great value for the money. I gave the CX680's a try, because I wanted something light and would block out the music at the gym. These headphones do both.
Pros: 1. Great Sound 2. Comfortable 3. Clear and accurate 4. Adjustable
Cons: 1. Takes time to figure out correct size cups and fins to use 2. Takes a few seconds to slide in ear correctly
Summary: These headphones sound good to me, and I'm an audio-phile (own modified HD555, ATH-m50, Re0). If your looking for good sound in exercise phones, look no further, buy these.
Pros: Earfins hold perfectly, and have a good range of sizes, they should fit about 80-90% of all people. Sound is good, very neutral, but the highs and lows are there, certainly not recessed. They respond nicely to small portable amps as well.
Summary: I have loved these since i got them and the sound is absolutely magnificent. You will not regret buying these headphones.
Pros: All i can say is that they are fantastic. I am a runner and have had a problem with having headphones stay in my ear for a while now. When i finally saw a deal with these headphones and how popular they were selling out, i had to get my hands on a pair. I found it interesting that it is open to a...
Cons: The only thing i'll talk about is that it becomes a little loose if you sweat in your ear. Presumably it happens to everyone so it's not necessarily a con. The yellow color is okay, but i honestly wish it had come in blue or black instead.
