Summary: Exactly one month and one week after I received this, the microphone stopped working. I am an avid runner and gym goer and I have been using these solidly for the past month. Reading through some of the other interviews (after I bought the item!) it seems that the microphone design is flawed and doesn't keep moisture out. Two thumbs down.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THESE EARPHONES! After years of buying cheap earphones after cheap earphones for use at the gym and them getting ruined by sweat etc I wanted to fork out a little more and buy a decent pair that would last and were SWEAT RESISTANT! These earphones claim to be just that but unfortunately are just another false claim.....they look great, feel great in, are a great fit but that's about where it ends....

Summary: 1> Sound quality is not better than a 10£ headphones available in the market. I had BOSE in ear and wanted to replace them with a little cheaper option. I was really really disappointed. 2> Although they claim to be sports product - mike stopped working as they fell in water. 3> Very uncomfortable to the ear Just do not allow any AIR to your ear drums. I get headache every time I wear them for more than an hour. 4> Apple's 25£ ear pods are much better in all respects.

Summary: The sound is good. But what is the point if the plugs won't stay in the ear as they are meant to do? As soon as they get wet with sweat they slide out, and not having a malleable ear hook (like some designs) you can't tighten the hook around the ear to 'lock' them in position. I actually got off the treadmill and changed the size of buds, but it was just as bad. I quickly got fed up trying to press them back into position and took them off completely.
Summary: These worked reasonably for a month, though they are not a great fit and required constant adjusting when out running. The sound quality was excellent. However after a month the volume/pause toggle stopped working and I had to send them back. I was sent a replacement set but the same thing happened almost straight away, coupled with the sound coming and going from ear to ear and fluctuating from inaudible to ear splitting!
