Excellent Sports Headphones,
This review is from: Sennheiser OMX185 Stereo In-Ear Headphones (Electronics)
I felt compelled to write a review. I bought some Sennheiser headphones from HMV which hooked around the ear (like these), the idea being that these wouldn't pop out of my ears when running or doing sports because they had a hook over the ear. The ones I bought were so uncomfortable (around the ear), sounded mediocre (bad fit issue probably) and worse, fell apart in moments - I was so disappointed that I sent them back to Sennheiser (from my hifi days I revered Sennehiser for their sound quality and was very disappointed) with a long letter. They sent these as a replacement....well the difference is amazing. First of all the ear hook bends so that it adjusts perfectly to my ear snuggly, and I imagine it would adjust to anyone else's ears perfectly too - and the sound quality was amazing, much better than the samsung and iphone headphones I was used too and even Denon, JVC, beats - I've being buying alot to try and find the perfect set and these are right up their with the best I've heard. So I'd say they are ideal sports headphones - snug fit around ear, excellent sound quality for the money (sound much more expensive), very light and they even has a neat little sliding volume control on the wire for quickly turning it down or back up without hunting in the pocket for your music player...my only gripe is the lack of microphone so if you're plugged into your phone you cant answer on the fly - but as dedicated headphones for sports, nano/ipod without phone mic - these are clear cut 5 star winners - Sennheiser has redeemed itself in my eyes.
