Summary: I'm not sure if there aren't two different products with the same name out there. The headphones I bought were to replace standard iPhone buds and I was expecting a really, really big improvement. The iPhone buds fit in my ears ok and the sound is ok but I thought I would treat myself to a much better pair of headphones for those longer runs... What a mistake!!
Good for Apple users who have the right sized ears for a proper fit - for everyone else its completely hit or miss

Summary: I bought these to replace my CX680s which had a few design flaws of their own over the years and having a several replacements through Sennheiser's excellent 2 year warranty (as long as you purchase them through an approved dealer). I own a lot of Sennheiser headphones, from the high end HD800 and IE800s right down to the CX680s which were used daily for exercise.
Summary: Shame, after paying so much of money you still get something which is not up to mark. It keeps popping out of the ear, i have tried all three sizes came with headphones, after 10 mins of run they start popping out...Bad decision to buy them..
Summary: Tried out for the first time and within an hour the remote started to activate the voice control on my phone without me pressing any buttons. I'm assuming this was caused by the remote getting wet with sweat. The sound is decent enough but the earbuds themselves are just standard rubber buds found on most earphones these days. I don't believe that the remote is sweatproof though so cant recommend these at all. Very disappointing.
Summary: The headphones have a good sound quality however they are not really suitable for running. The volume control is really annoying as it jumps around and pulls the headphones all the times. Using the wire clip did not really help. Sending it back.
Summary: Tried these, great audio quality and very comfortable. However they neglect to mention what they are compatible with.. The volume control did not work what so ever on my HTC One.... For that I'm giving them a low rating cause is the fact that they do not mention this and as the volume control is what I bought them for this proved a total waste of £50...
Summary: I use my iphone and earphones for running in the gym and outside and decided to invest in a more expensive pair as the ones supplied form Apple are not sweat resistant and after a while the controls take on a life of their own and starting cutting into voice activation etc etc. the sound quality on these are good but to my horror the earphones do exactly the same as the apple.
Summary: I've owned a number of Sennheiser sports headphones over the years, from the simple earbud types through to the wrap around your head types, and all have delivered a warm and punchy sound. Until these, that is. Yes you can change the adapters to ensure a nice snug fit, and they seem generally well made, but unless you shove the earbuds virtually into your brain cavity, there is no bass.
Summary: Maybe a good product for the gym goer who doesn't care too much about sound quality while working out. Bass is poor and this is especially frustrating in the gym, where I want some oomph to keep me going. At the same time, turning the volume up too much is not an option cause the high notes are strident and become annoying. Overall this gives a sound that lacks force and beat.
