Excerpt: For years, I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of headphones that travel well and look cool enough to wear to the gym. When the LX 90 arrived, I thought I had found the perfect workout partner. Pumped up, I plugged them in but the end result was deflating.
Pros: Stays snuggly in place even during vigorous exercise. Lightweight and comfortable even over extended use. Clever design garners more sidelong glances than six-pack abs. Cord coils up for easy transport.
Cons: Ambient sound easily filters in; idle gym rat chitchat often broke my concentration. Figuring how to unravel cord will make you feel like you have special needs.
Conclusion: Sennheiser has tried to do something different with the age old design of the headphone here by introducing the over the head option. While it offers a clutter free option for those who care about their hair or wear glasses this is likely to be a real turn off.
Pros: Lightweight, good sound, carry case included
