Over-rated, fall out your ears, poor sound quality.
on 10 April 2015
These headphones are advertised as "won't fall out your ears" and are marketed as sports specific headphones.
Unfortunately they do not live up to expectation. As with any specialised headphone for some reason you always end up compromising on sound quality (these lack base and are very hollow and produce a very tinny-type sound).
Secondly, they DO fall out your ears. My ear canal is rather small and even using the different ear buds that come in the pack they are still not sufficient and still fall out when I am out running. also, you cannot buy spare ear buds so if you lose one (which I've done many times and had to buy 2 pairs of new headphones as a result) you have to replace the headphones. The ear buds on the ends come off very easily and the headphones cannot be used without them as they are small and round and don't even go in your ear and stay there.
A real disappointment after I read all the lovely reviews praising these headphones for not falling out your ears and being really good for their price. I've gone back to my iPhone headphones and while they don't fit as snug as I like, at least the sound quality is good.
