Great sound, and stay in your ears,
This review is from: Sennheiser PX685i Sports Headband Headset - White (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Running (or other vigorous activity) has always posed a challenge for headphones and earbuds. They need to be lightweight but stay firmly in your ear. The alternative for many a runner is standard earbuds and an acceptance that you will only half hear what is playing. And of course standard earbuds have a fairly poor sound quality.
The Sennheiser/Adidas headband is the latest attempt to solve the problem. Sennheiser for sound quality and Adidas for, well, either knowledge of exercise or impressive brand-reach.
The sound IS excellent.
The fit, stability, and stay-in-you-ear-ness? Brilliant on me and only average on my wife. And there's the rub - while Adidas shoes comes in all kinds of fit, these headphones are intended to be great for everyone. That was never going to happen, and so it is a bit of a lottery. She did love the sound when standing still though.
I would rate them five stars from a personal perspective, but not all heads are like mine, thankfully, so I can't give an unequivocal recommendation.
