Summary: These really can take a beating and they are basically waterproof. I run for an hour or more every day and I sweat a lot. These don't seem to be bothered by the water. I also jumped into a pool wearing them and they survived just fine.
Pros: These stay on your head even in high winds and they fit your ear very well so they transmit full-range sound and the fit is extremely comfortable. The design was done by someone who understands athletes and its functionality reflects that. The cable is separable so if you wear something like an i...
Cons: Over time, the neoprene covers on the earbuds can loosen up and come off. That happened on an earlier pair, but it has not happened on this pair.
Summary: My old ear buds kept falling out and needed re-adjusting constantly so I went shopping for something else. I'm also a bit of an audiophile so I demanded something quality. The Sennheiser PMX 680 satisfied my needs perfectly.
Pros: Newegg rocks, as always.. 3 day shipping took only 1 day. * Fit securely, even while running and lifting * Great sound quality for this price. They have strong bass response (punchy not boomy), and crisp albeit a bit laid back highs. The sound stage is surprising wide open. * The cord is the perf...
Cons: * Not as compact as ear buds, makes for a tough pocket fit * Bright yellow styling isn't for me... it's too showy, but makes for good road visibility
Summary: Great buy! Even though I have small ears and regular earbuds don't work out for me due also to the irregular shape of my ears, these fit just fine.
Pros: In comparison to Sony/Apple earbuds, its amazing. Even in comparison to Skull Candy's stuff, its good. The low and high notes are solid, and due to the fit, allows me to hear music and the traffic around me as I run. They don't bounce around and fit nicely. They don't feel like clamps trying to b...
Cons: Wearing these with long hair is difficult. The ponytail must be either tied as low as possible, or tied up high and the ends not whacking the headphones, or they will slip off. Can't use the earflaps on my helmet otherwise its uncomfortable/doesn't work out.
Summary: Senneheiser wraparounds are the only type that stay in my (small) ears and remain comfortable during workouts and running. I love the line in control, but if youre using an armband like I do, the upper cord is the perfect length to go from your upper arm to the headphones with the right amount of...
Pros: Volume control, light, decent sound for a warparound
Cons: None. Dont expect studio headphone quality sound reporduction!
Pros: I have yanked and ripped them out of the MP3 player more times than i can count. The connector still shows no signs of being pulled out like my previous headphone. They fit well and stay in place. Little sound transfer when tapping on the cord. The Inline volume control feels well built and hasn'...
Summary: If you've ever wanted to run with music and can't find headphones that stay in your ear...I recommend trying these. Yes, a bit pricey, but well worth it!
Pros: First off, Newegg has amazing service! Ordered these and they were at my doorstep less than 24 hrs after ordering them! And, free shipping!!! The headphones are just wonderful! Ran 6 miles on trails with them for the first time...about a mile in I totally forgot I had them on. I've used many diff...
Cons: The whole shorter cord/longer cord with volume control can be annoying, but once you get used to it...it is not noticeable.
Pros: Very good sound quality for the earbud style. Was pleased that the headphone had two connection points and that you did not have to use the inline volume control. I wear my MP3 player on my arm and the shorter length is perfect.
So far so good. The Sennheiser range of sports-headphones are great
11 September 2014
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.
