Summary: Over all one of the best liked and most comfortable headphones ever made judging from hundreds of positive reviews on various websites.
Pros: The vertical headband design is probably the best headphone design. It lets air in and it lets moisture out. They fit almost all ears very comfortably and they stay comfortable. They don't fall out like ear buds or start to hurt like the special sport earbuds. They don't move like behind the ear ...
Cons: The main down side is the current price since they have been discontinued, and also that one ear eventually goes out because the wire connections eventually get loose. The cords pull on the connection to the speaker or entrance to the headphones which eliminates the cord noise you hear with sport...
Summary: I keep getting bounced back and forth between newegg and the warranty company and the manufacturer. Why? Because I do not have a PC and none of the websites are tablet friendly. Wierd, they all work when I make a purchase. BTW, its the same with the newegg app.
Pros: They did look tough. Arrived new in package.
Cons: They only look tough. After almost three months of use. The covering over the wire near the jack itself has worn off. I admit I am a heavy user. That's why I bought these!.

Great sounding, feather-light, inexpensive, tough headphones
9 December 2012
Summary: Great inexpensive headphone for the gym. The survive a good sweaty workout and can also survive lots of catches of the cord on a machine. Very nice sound if you like rock and blues; hip hoppers might look elsewhere since using these the bass sounds like an instrument and not an earthquake.
Summary: They take a minute to get used too. I have had these for three months now. Wanted a pair oh headphones that could survive physical activity. Well, these have passed every test. Been dropped several time's. Cord pulled on. Kid tested*( 2 yr old) lol...Can't seem to break em! Gonna buy more!
Pros: These things are tough! *Lightweight *Won't fall off your head.
Summary: My wife uses these phones for walking and biking and likes the way they stay in position. The first pair she wore out one of the wires after years of use. When we spotted these available, we bought them as they are the identical pair. Now having had two pair we recommend them for exercise type use.
