Summary: I bought these twice. They broke at the exact same spot on both pairs (earhook snapped right below left earbud). 1st pair lasted about 3 months and 2nd only 1 month! I used at the gym average of 7 hours a week. Only reason I bought it a 2nd time is because I thought maybe the first breakage was a fluke and it's extremely hard for me to find earbuds that stay on through my sweat sessions. HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!!!! Did not get refund either time.
Summary: These are terrible. The sound quality is awful. Really hard to get into my favorite song while running when I have a hard time making out the beat. Very sturdy and stong. The athletic aspect of these head phones are good. They stay on your ears very well in any activity. Running, sit-ups, push-ups.
Summary: Worked great for about a month. Conveniently, once the warranty expired they broke. If you only need headphones for 4 weeks, consider, but if you want something for the long haul, look elsewhere.
Summary: They look good. But the sound was hollow, and the volume quiet right out of the box. I never could get them to comfortably fasten to my ear. And then the left side crapped out on me within a week. Dont waste your time with this model.
Summary: Thes earbuds are awful. They dont sta in your ear at all and the loop around your earlobe doesnt do much either. I can barely keep these in my ears when I am sitting. Theres no way it will stay in while I am doing any kind of physical activity. The price for these headphones are way too high. These are no better than buying some cheap earbuds at a gas station. I wish I could get my money back and put it towards some real earbuds.
Summary: I bought these headphones because I read great reviews about the sound quality compared specifically to other performance head phones. I was contemplating buying the Beats sport version, but they were about 2x the price of the Sony headphones. The sound quality of the Sony XBA's was rated to be close if not better than the Beats, which I would argue is pretty accurate. However, the reason for the poor rating is that the these are very DELICATE headphones.
Summary: I am very disappointed with this product. They fell apart in two different places very quickly. If I could give them 0 zero stars, I would. I used these 4x a week running 3-5 miles and the ear buds came loose from the wire, on both sides. Then, after dealing with that, they fell apart again at the connection points. DO NOT BUY these if you are active at all.
