Great gym headphones with perfect iPhone integration,
This review is from: Sennheiser PX685i Sports Headband In-Ear Headset - White (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've been struggling for a while to find headphones for use at the gym. Regular push-in buds fall-out too easily, the ones with moulded ear hooks are slightly better but I've never found a brilliant fit, and they've all struggled with the reality of sweat in the ear 20-30 minutes into a session on the treadmill. These headphones have solved those problems for me. They're Sennheiser so the sound is great. They have a premium almost rubberised feel to the materials which is ideal for dealing with that sweat. The big leap for me was moving back to the old headband format. How retro. How 80s. But for practicality over style the simple truth is that this format works best when you're running. They stay on, and stay in, and sound great.
The big bonus for me, and the reason for the 5* is the totally unexpected bonus of the quality of iPhone integration. You can answer calls, and it must have a mic somewhere because the other end can hear you clearly on the phone without taking the phone out your pocket or armband if running. There was no set-up involved. Just plug in the headphone jack and this feature set 'just worked'. Very happy overall with the product. My wife has this white version which goes better with her gear - but I have the black version which I think is the more stylish unless you really have a white iPhone you want to match - in which case go for this white one.
