4.0 out of 5 stars Nice and solid and ideal for the sporty types. Good for the rest of us too!, 22 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Sennheiser OCX 685i Sports In-Ear Canal Headphones - White (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The box on this is decent, but as with a lot of products these days took some effort to get in to! There is a little velcro bag included to store everything in which is a nice touch.

The actual build quality is very good and there are the usual extras such as spare ear buds, and also a sweat filter which I've not seen before - it stops any excess sweat from getting to the earphones.

I prefer the inner ear type earphones out of choice and quite liked these. Slightly different in that they have the round ear piece to hold them in snug to the ear - I found this initially irritating but soon got used to it and the rubber is actually comfy after a while.

The sound quality is good for the price - not the best but more than adequate. I tried these on an iPhone 4 and had no issues with the playback using an audio book and a general Now that's what I call Music album. The noise can distort a touch at the higher volumes but that's not something I do on a regular basis and for day to day use they are fine. Although they are not specifically noise filtering they do a good job at blocking out background sound.

You also get an in-line control on these earphones that lets you do basic play/pause ff/rew functions and also works as a control for basic phone functions. This works well and the only issue I have is with the colour :)

I tried them on the treadmill and they worked fine and stayed in position and I think they would be a good buy for the more physically inclined.

Although not quite as good as my regular earphones (Soul by Ludacris), I did like these and they are good value for £40 - but not so good value at the RRP of £60 at the time of writing.

I'd probably use these as my backup set as they give good sound and work well, certainly if you are energetic and need something that stays firmly in place.

Recommended.
