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.
Worse than £5 specials, very very very poor in every respect...

Summary: Opened, checked, packed up - returned. Opened up at 10am, tested in my Creative Zen Vision M (incidentally the finest piece of tech I have ever purchased). Problem 1: sound was like a fart in a bucket, distant and wheezy, problem 2: my zen constantly switched off (or at least tried to), problem 3: this is by far the most disappointed I have been in years with the quality of my headphones. My current headphones are JVC and were £5 from the bargain bucket 18 months ago.
Summary: I love these headphones. When I'm a the gym or running, in ear headphones just won't stay in. Perhaps I just have wonky ears, but these are a godsend. They're comfy, have good sound qulaity and most importantly, don't move when I'm working out. Well worth the money.
Summary: I have to say I'm majorly disappointed in these headphones! They have barely lasted a few weeks before failing. I intend to return them as I would expect so much more from Sennheiser products. The sound, when working, was good, sadly it was all too short lived!
