Excerpt: I bought these headphones to replace my torn Bose sports headphones as they were much cheaper than the new Bose sports headphone. They are extremely uncomfortable, they have a unique design that is supposed to help them sit comfortably and remain stable in the ear. They are neither stable nor comfortable, my ear is anatomically normal yet they tug on my ear and keep falling even when I'm not running.
Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Flimsy Construction, Uncomfortable
Excerpt: I bought these headphones for running and biking. I chose them over the (slightly more expensive) other versions because I am planning on using them with a helmet on. I was worried that they wouldn't be as secure as the PMX 685is, but they are really secure. The adjustable brace on the earphone works really well, and I can wear them through miles of running with no issues. They also sound great for workout headphones, but I can hear my environment quite clearly.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Once you get the trick to 'installing' these to your ears, they are the best you'll own in earbud headphones. No background leakage, and seriously deep bass, crisp highs, and smooth midrange. The clip and carrying bag are great for gym rats and commuters alike, and they are waterproof and sweatproof, so that's always good! Highly recommended!

Summary: I'm a runner and like listening to music while I'm out but also need to be aware of traffic etc. These headphones are perfect for that purpose. No they're not the best sound quality but for me they don't need to be. I don't mind that you can't answer your phone without removing the headphones first as I don't answer my phone if I'm running anyway.
Summary: These earphones are fine, but nothing impressive. The fitting can be quite complicated. They will not fall when adjusting the ear fins properly. But this could annoy you since you need to fit then tight against your ear. At the same time, they might not fit in the ear canal fine and sound quality would be reduced since too much outer noise can be heard. Maybe you want to try with the CX 685 version of the product.
