Summary: I have gone through 2 of the previous models and 1 of the newer ones, this one being in the middle of the production line makes number 4 for me. I use this at work for it's hand free convenience, which for me is it's only selling point. That said, they such...all of them, so far. If you pay more than 40 buck for these...well don't. These ones and the earlier ones are more comfortable than the newer ones, but the earliest model have a software issue.
Summary: I use these for running and have worked very well in all sorts of weather. Easy to hook up and sync with my computer, and working the device is very intuitive. Unfortunately they do not want to stay put while running, so I always have to keep them "tied down" with a headband to keep them from flopping around and eventually falling off. I think the problem's just that the earpieces are too heavy and the weight distribution is off, but it's an easily solvable issue.
Summary: This is my go-to device for walking in the neighborhood in the evenings. The audio seal is a little loose (on purpose) so I do get some sound leakage of the surrounding environment for safety reasons. I could go with the larger earbuds and get a great seal. I tend to listen to musicals and other items that need to play in order, so I haven't used the shuffle or Zappin feature often. Controls are straight forward and intuitive.
A+ rating on this transaction and product.. Could not be happier!.

These are so convenient to use for working out,(and water resistent) and these are more comfortable than the newest versions,. Battery charge life is amazing and charge time is very short. The delivery of these was extremely fast and very well packaged. A+ rating on this transaction.

Summary: I'm a 35-50 mpw runner and do most of my Nov-March runs on the treadmill since I live in MN. I've burned through 4 pairs of headphones since November. Whether they're cheap, expensive, say they're water/sweat resistant or not, that doesn't seem to matter. They all become filled with sweat after the 4th or 5th long run and don't work anymore. I'm not a heavy sweater either but am frequently doing 10-14 mile runs on the treadmill.
