Conclusion: I recommend these headphones for running and other high-impact forms of exercise. They sound great, stay secure in your ears, and are very durable--probably the best running headphones I've found, and I've tried a lot of different brands and models.
Conclusion: I own the Sennheiser CX 685 ear buds and Sony MDR-EX210 ear buds. The Sennheiser sound better than the Sony. But both of these do not stay in my ear at the gym no matter which size buds I use. I purchased this PX 685 so I don't have to worry about that any longer. They sound great for the price, with a good equalizer app they sound even better. They do have lesser bass than the CX 685, but only because they aren't stuffed inside your ear canal like the ear buds.
Conclusion: I've recently purchased this headset and I have to say, it is extremely awesome !! I can turn the sound up while in a quiet library and it cannot be heard AT ALL. I did a test just to see how loud I could turn it up without it being heard because I've had headphones in the past that you can hear music even at a quiet level while they are in your ears. Not these headphones. Even when they are out of your ears at a louder than normal volume, music still cannot be heard.
Conclusion: Ear buds don't fit in my ears so running with music has been impossible. This product works great for me. It stays on my head when running and the volume adjustment, stop music, skip song option is great and easy to use while running.

Summary: I have had two pairs of these headphones. Each time one of the earphones has stopped working after about 3 or 4 months. I wear them while running and hence there is some moisture from sweating but for an expensive product they should not break. I think they are defective and not fit for purpose. Don't buy them is my advice.
Summary: Finally found a quality way of listening to music whilst out walking or at the gym. I did not think my ears were an unusual shape, but all other devices I have tried that fit the ear canal were either painful or fell out with the slightest movement. This headband stays in place, is easily adjustable and comfortable to wear.
Summary: These are high quality headphones, great sound and well made. But as sports headphones they are useless (unless you have a sport that involves no movement). You have to strap them to your head to stop them falling off when running. They have individual cables to each ear bud so the wire keeps snagging on everything so forget running in woodland.
Summary: I've been running with these 3 times a week for over a year now, and they still work perfectly. I have small ear canals and really struggle to find any in-ear headphones that will stay put when I move. These are comfy, don't fall off, and allow me to hear traffic and other street noise which is essential when running in the city. Top buy.
