Excerpt: I bought these when the model was still fresh, about 18 months ago. They worked pretty well and sounded fine. They're better if you buy a set of foam earpieces from a 3rd party.At the price advertised here, they're a good deal.After about 8 months, the rubber hooks that hold the headphones on my ears started to separate from the cable. I couldn't find any cement or glue that would keep them in place.
Summary: I don't have any headphones to compare them to, as these are some of my first good quality headphones. They sound great, they're pretty comfortable, if you wear them around the house, or just walking around, they stay nicely in your ear, however if you do something that makes you sweat, they don't stay in your ear well. I'm guessing this can be fixed with custom tips, but I never bought any.
Pros: Good sound, cheap
Cons: Bad build, headphone easily detaches from plastic arm, easily comes out when sweating (Probably fixable with third-party tips)
Summary: Ok, it doesn't exactly cancel noise, I use it on the London tube and I can still hear every thing going on around me. It however fits into my ears comfortably, the main reason I bought this type of head phones.
Works okay. Should come with additional silicon ear pieces.

Summary: I still have to re-seat them over and over while I run. So I'm constantly reaching up and pushing them back into my ears. Sounds is okay, and remote works fine. Also, unfortunately, I lost one of the earpieces. It's all to easy to do with this type of headphones- I don't know why they don't come with about six or seven of each size!
Summary: Not THE most amazing headphones but they do block out a lot of noise. I would say that they are slightly tinny but nothing that would put me off using them! Fit wise they are ok - I am on the small side with small ears! I did notice a little bit of movement when I first started to use them but they are so light that you get used to them!
Summary: Only use these if you absolutely do not want to hear anything at all that is going on around you. Heck with these in your ears, even breathing becomes highly audible. If you are going outside, I'd give these a miss as they seal off outside noise 100%, so would be dangerous. In a gym they may be totally perfect and the sound quality from them is fantastic, I'd say better than my Bose earplugs, but that seems to be down to these being a noise blocking fit, and not due to...
Summary: Finding a decent pair of in ear headphones for gym use can be a real nightmare. I've always found it really difficult to find in-ear headphones which will stay in no matter what at the gym. These are one of the few pairs I've found aren't flying all over the place during workouts. *** Pros *** ✓ Comfortable even with extended use ✓ In-line microphone ✓ Much better than the rubbish headphones you get with your iPhone ✓ 2 Year Warranty ✓ Good build quality I even managed...
Summary: I bought these for my husband who wanted some sports headphones with a microphone so he could take calls while working out. We both tried them when they arrived. I personally found the sound quality lacking in that it had no sense of ambience, as if you were hearing the music in a room with the sound deadened (if that makes any sense).
Summary: Most of the descriptions of the product are valid. Nice comfortable ear fit, sweat proof, light. BUT, the sound quality is nowhere near as good as as the makers marketing (and some reviewers) claim The sound is tinny, lacks depth and clarity. When exercising, cycling mainly, the sound is so weak it has made me return to my Apple ear buds.
