The phrase 'you get what you pay for' certainly applies here. I read the reviews, some favourable, some not and took a punt. After all, they were only cheap so not much to lose. I wore them for about 30/40 yards worth of running and knew right away that they weren't for me. One came off my ear straightaway and whilst in the other ear, I wasn't hearing much as the fitting was poor despite making adjustments on the slider. I carried on running trying to adjust them at the same time which is never a good thing to do. All this was in vain as deep down I knew it just wasn't going to work - they just weren't right. I'm sure we've all had that feeling.
Not sure if reviewing these sorts of products is useful as we all need a certain fitting for our ears, one size does not in this case fit all. They might be good for some (favourable review) and be hopeless for others (poor review). For me its a no, they didn't fit snugly when I first tried them on on arrival and they fell off my ears more or less straightaway when out running. I guess you have to take the gamble. I personally prefer ones that lodge in the ear canal and cancel all noise, these were never going to do that for me.
