Excerpt: After much research, i landed on the Sennheisers. I am SUPER particular about my headphones and heading to just any store and picking up a random pair was not ok. I found these online and read probably every review online. Even after deciding i wanted to try them out, it wasnt until a colleague of mine had his hanging out of his bag and I asked how they were. He said he loved them and I was sold. I wear them for sports related activities as well as every day use.
Summary: This product is made with the runner in mind. No more ear buds falling out. They stay in!! The sound is just fine. They have one cord not two and it goes to the left side so way easier that way. They are not for gym workouts or cardio etc. They are for runing. Work OK under stocking cap. I go back to earbuds though when I use a stocking cap. Highly recommend if you are buying them for running. I have had them for 6 years. On my 2nd set. Love them!!
Summary: I finally got tired of my Sony earbuds falling out of my ears while running and tried finding a sports headphone set that would sound as good as the earbuds. I tried some brand name and no-name brands, and was amazed at how bad the sound quality was for all these sets. Finally I ordered these headphones and I was happy. I can run now without getting annoyed because my earbuds are falling out.
Summary: These have the best sound I have had out of a set of headphones in a long time. the only downfall id they are not that good for the gym unless all you do is standup once you lay down they push out of place. Perfect for runners or cardio.
So far so good. The Sennheiser range of sports-headphones are great

Summary: So far so good. The Sennheiser range of sports-headphones are great. They have really good sound quality, that drown out the other inconvenient noises of gyms - people grunting, bad music etc. Handy that they wrap-around the neck.
Summary: I use these for running and all I wanted was something that stayed in place and sounded good, these tick both boxes. I run in a hoody so clip the sound control to the pouch part of my hoody and it stays in place fine, if you run in a shirt then it's a little more awkward but I found it easier to just tuck it all underneath my shirt rather than trying to clip it.
Summary: Short cable, so it's not in the way (I clip my MP3 player to my shirt). Extension cable is good if you keep your device in your pocket. Bass is good and doesn't distort other frequencies when loud. Overall sound quality is very good. Frame feels plasticky (well, it is plastic :)) Wouldn't bend it too much. Only time will tell.
