Summary: Loved the headphones but the longevity was horrid.
Pros: The pros:fits in ear, and the fin makes sure it won't come out of place. It might look a bit uncomfortable by the looks; however, you barely notice its even there. Sound quality is fine, and the clip was nice for when i was lifting weights.
Cons: There was only one con; however, this should be the deciding factor. I've gotten these headphones twice, and the exact same thing happened both times. The first time, the headphones worked for 2-3 months, then one ear went out, then the other. I admit I was a little rough with them, and loved them, so decided to by them again. I treated it like it was my baby, made sure that I wouldn't let it snag on anything. However, after around 4 months, one ear suddenly went out,...
Summary: Great earbuds but the volume control needs to be a lot more durable.
Pros: These are great sounding earbuds. I have no issues with the earbuds at all. I have owned them for about 18 months now and the still work great. The noise isolation is awesome. I have worn them on the inside of a C-17 and listened to music. Shot a .50 machine gun and had still no trouble hearing my music. Also, the fins are great at staying in-ear. Running, and lifting weights I have had no trouble using them.
Cons: On the other hand the volume control has broken twice. The first did not last long at all. Then I actually found another one that someone had lost. Same thing happened with it. The female end of the volume control starts to give the headphones an underwater sound when it is even slightly touched. Even with the volume control broken you can just use them with a shorter cord. Even though it is very convenient I would just go with the MX680i
Summary: I got these because I needed headphones for the gym that wouldn't fall out when I'm running or get damaged by sweat (although working out listening to grado sr125s would be great before you start sweating), for which they work perfectly.
Pros: Once you figure out the size fin that fits your ear, it is irremovable short of divine intervention, and pretty comfortable. You can either use the foam pads over the speaker, or go with the air cushion. I went with the cushion since I use these solely to work out with and sweat on foam is meh.
Cons: Like all headphones that don't seal the ear canal, the bass is weak, though better than most.
Summary: If you're a freerunner, these are a must. They are perfect for acrobatics and the headphones stay in your ear with no trouble at all. A great budget deal and they really do sound great. I bought these for $50 at Best Buy, and Newegg's got them for $30. Man, if I would've just waited.
Pros: I bought these from Best Buy a month or two back, and I gotta say, these are fantastic for working out, running, or even freerunning if you're into that. I tested their durability and they have stayed in my ears perfectly, and if the default doesn't work, it comes with a small or large bud size. It has a very strong cable that keeps it flexed and stringy, so it doesn't coil up or get easily tangled, and the clips are at perfect increments to clip to either pants or yo...
Cons: Even with the extension cable, it can still be a tad short. I usually pull it up underneath my shirt to my ears so it's less wires everywhere, but the pants clip can sometimes come loose. However, the shirt clip works best on it. Also, as earbuds, you're quite obviously going to have some trouble finding bass. It sounds great, but without bass, it really doesn't rock you as you expect. I personally just add Bass Boost as an equalizer and it usually sounds a lot better...
Summary: I destroy ear-buds because I use them in the gym. Over time, the rubber on the chord turns hard and brittle due to the constant sweating and exposure to elements. These do not have that problem. After months of use, the chord is as flexible as ever and shows no signs of deterioration.
Pros: Good sound, helps drown out the bad so-called music they play in the gym over the loudspeakers. The earfins actually work great; never had them fall out when performing aerobic activity like other ear buds do. These do what they are supposed to, save me from having to use my CX-300s in the gym.
Cons: Wish I had gotten the sound isolating version, but these were on sale and fit the bill.
