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: 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.
Summary: I ordered these as a replacement as I have had these headphones before and they give a great sound and are very comfortable. I usually find earpieces fall out or are painful but these are excellent and stay in place even when I am running.
Summary: Having tried quite a few headphones, push in buds or clip over ear for running these are the best by a mile. You can get the updated model for these but as I am not bothered about receiving phone calls while running this model is just fine. A lot of reviews complain of the extended cable with the volume control being too heavy, the best option is not to use it.
