Summary: The curvature of the headphones makes it easy on the ears. Great to hear the music and at the same time know the surroundings of the environment. Like all headphones what can we do with the cord.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight, Sporty
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) These are a good pair of ear phones for running and the gym, and with a long enough cord for running on a treadmill. The sound quality is much better than those cheap ear phones you can get at Walmart, etc. However, to get the deep rich bass sound, you really have to push the ear pads into your ears (and I had to use the adapter pieces provided to make the earpad bigger to fit my ear better).
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) Got these for the wife. She is not very tall so the length of the cord is too long. She finds them a little hard to adjust and they don't stay in place real well for her. Otherwise she is happy. They sound good.
Summary: as an avid worker-outer, i must say that these are "okay", but are certainly not the ultimate workout headphone, (which I'd hoped they'd be, though i've yet to find said ultimate workout headphone). here's my take: 1. ear buds just don't stay in my ear, hence i need something with a band. these offer a very secure fit, and do not move around much during rigorous exercise. 2. i have a really sweaty head, so i need something that is waterproof.
Summary: Amazon Verified Purchase ( What's this? ) I am very pleased with this product. I have 2 separate sets of the sports line earphones made by Sennheiser and am just amazed at the sound quality. I have used Bose earbuds that a friend has and I feel these have very comparable sound quality but at a very small fraction of the price of the Bose. Also the adjustability of the ear hooks is a very nice feature.
Summary: I purchased these headphones since I was a little tired of my earbud style headphones falling off or becoming dislodged with moderate activities, and turned to the Sennheiser OMX80's due to the good reviews. In reality there are two showstoppers with this product, which warrants the 1-star: - Earbuds are extremely difficult to get in your ear, even with the supplied earpiece extensions. I've had no issues with other in-ear designs, such as the Etymotics.
Summary: I've had these for a little over a month. The sound quality is exceptional for sport earphones, they stay in my ear well, and I like that the ear hook can be shaped to fit your ear. My only major complaint is the wire set-up. The left earbud cord is short and the right is extra long, so if I put the cord in from of my body, the right earbud cord bounces around my mouth when I run, if I put it behind my neck, it tends to catch a little and feels like its pulling at my...
Summary: This is the fourth pair of these headphones that I have purchased for my teenage daughter. These have the best sound of all the headphones we have tried. These travel everywhere with my daughter...all day at high school, etc. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to spend $60 on headphones every 2 months.
