This review is from: Sennheiser/Adidas CX 680 High-Performance Noise-Isolating Ear Canal Headphones (Sports-Optimised Design) (Electronics)
I can honestly say that these headphones have transformed my training experience!

For years I'd been putting up with using an average pair of 'in-ear' headphones which meant that if I was in the gym I would barely be able to hear the music because they would always work themselves out of my ears & drop out at the first mention of sweat and if I was out on a run I would spend most of my time trying to put the earphones back in my ears because they would constantly fall out due to the amount of movement involved. With these Adidas earphones, all of these problems are now a thing of the past!

I spent a lot of time researching for a good pair of earphones that weren't going to cost the earth but would stay put not matter what kind of training I was doing & provide good quality sound at the same time. There seemed to be a good variety of 'behind the head' earphones but I've tried them before and they don't really suit for me. So after thinking long and hard I took the plunge and bought these. They are absolutely worth every penny.

The earfin system means that I can put the headphones in my ears at the beginning of a training session or a run & I don't have to think about them again until I'm ready to take them out. They are wonderfully comfortable, the sound quality is excellent and the noise-isolation works so well that I don't hear road noise, noise from the machines in the gym or the background music played in the gym. They work so well that even when there is a spinning class on at the front of the main gym I can't hear that either!! The only minor fault I can see is that you can sometimes hear the thud of your own steps in your ears, but this only seems to occur when the music is on at low volume or if you don't use the wire clip.

Some people seem to think that these headphones are expensive. I actually think that they are very reasonably priced in comparison to some other makes, and if you regularly use earphones to train then I cannot recommend them highly enough. These headphones have transformed my training experience & I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
