Conclusion: They had 3 different sizes of clips which was nice because i had to switch the ones that they came with. they have great sound quality for the price. i used them for cardio workouts(running/biking) and weight lifting, along with mowing the yard and casual listening. i had them for about 3 months and then one of the headphones stopped working. i would recommend these for people who need a cheaper pair of exercise headphones.
Summary: I've been using these for about a month and am satisfied overall. The original pair I received stopped working on the left side almost immediately, but return was easy and the new pair works great. I use these mainly for working out at the gym; I love the short cord for armband use, so I don't have to wrap the long cord around the mp3 player. My only complaint is the earbuds could stay in place better during rigorous activities (boxing, jumping rope, running, etc.
Summary: Not the greatest sound and they don't compare to my Shure e4 earphones, but they do stay in your ears while running or other physical activity, which I can't say for the Shures. The sound is not bad, just not hi fidelity, but if you want that, spend a lot more money. They could be a little cheaper, but these are the ones I go to regularly for running, cycling, or lifting. The length of cord is just right for me, although some may think it is a little short.
Just what I wanted... but some problems with functionality

Summary: Review updated: March 2011 When I bought these, I was searching for a pair of headphones that would: 1. Fit snug inside my ear so as to not fall out or come loose when working out 2. Produce excellent sound while blocking most ambient noise 3. Have a comfortable clip and ear bud so that they can be worn for hours at a time. I have been using these headphones specifically for almost four years (I'm on my second pair, but that's because I lost my originals.
Summary: About a year ago, I purchased an iPod Shuffle for working out. At the time, I was doing a lot of running (I still run today, just not as far). I would often base my runs on the length of songs (today I would run the distance of 12 songs, tomorrow 18 and so on), plus music makes the time go by. The classic iPod was just too bulky.
