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. Will buy another set when these finally get killed at the gym.
Summary: The sound in the headphones is fine and I really liked the fact they were light and fit over the head but the earbuds never really seemed to fit and they were slightly hard and uncomfortable. Maybe it is by design that they do not fit snug in the ear but while I was walking and jogging the wind kept whistling around the earbuds and I couldn't tune it out. (this wasn't a windy day either, just the normal air that would pass by you while walking or jogging.
Summary: These headphones are far and away the best I have ever had. As a runner, I look for headphones that are lightweight and will stay in place while delivering top quality sound. These definitely deliver. I have had several pairs over the years and have always sought them out. They have carried me through 5 marathons and countless training runs.
Some reviewers have complained about the rough edge that can be on the earpiece.
Summary: I have used this exact headphone for several years because the hole in my ears are so tiny that any other headphone style is painful to wear. This particular headphone fits any ear size and the sound quality is excellent (especially for the price).
