AirDrives FIT Stereo Earphones for iPhone and Blackberry models with 3.5mm plugs, are sports tough with a new cinch around the ear design for a secure fit while leaving room for helmets and sunglasses. Just loop the wire over your ear, cinch it to fit and go. The volume ramp on cord houses a microphone and call answer button and is adjustable through your shirt or with gloved hands. The FIT model for iPhone takes AirDrives’ revolutionary patented outer ear design and tunes them for sports at a more affordable price.
How it works:
AirDrives open ear architecture design keeps the ear canal open. This allows you to hear both your music and be aware of your surroundings.
AirDrives uses patented InAir Technology which drives sound towards the open ear. This allows an entirely unique personal listening experience that mimics having a high quality home or car stereo system while still allowing ambient sound to be heard. The listener can interact socially and take music into more active settings while staying connected.
Sound waves from AirDrives transmit sound through the outer ear, naturally allowing sound to filter into the mid ear and inner ear. All other headphone and earphone designs bypass the natural filtering mechanism of the outer ear, which cause a risk of long term hearing damage. AirDrives are Audiologist approved for all day listening.

* The earbud always fell out of at least one ear I had tried all sorts of sizes of adapters and all sorts of adapters that are supposed to keep the bud in place. I was considering made to measure plugs but as these start at £100 I thought I would give the Air Drive a go.
* The second problem which is bud specific I do want to know what is going on around me while walking the dog, jogging or crossing the road. Buds are designed block out all other sounds.
Air Drives are not inserted in the ear the speaker sits outside the ear (on the tragus) and is firmly held in place by the speaker cord wrapping behind the ear. These are well made, comfortable, secure and plenty loud enough. The trick is to have your iPhone at max volume and control the volume by the control on the Air Drive cord. The pause and volume controls on the cord work fine, as no one has called me when wearing them I can't comment on the hands free mic. Like the previous reviewer I too would prefer the controls on the cord to be nearer the speakers.
***Update after six months.
Second pair has developed the same buzzing issue as the first, and one of the earpieces fell to bits and had to be reglued. Yet another set of earphones that hasn't lasted any time at all.
They hang on your ear, which is fine, although after a whole day it feels like you've been wearing glasses too much and there's a slight discomfort. They're not the fastest thing to put on, especially if you have long hair in the way or big earings. I haven't tried any extreme sports but they tend to stay on the ear fine. The longer the tip of your ear, the better they stay on.
The volume control is useful and the pause/skip button works with iPhone most of the time, just have to make sure the plug is all the way in. Only thing I'd change is I'd put control panel closed to the earphones - it's half way down the cable and a bit too far to use the microphone for phone conversation.

They offer a great balance of sound and the on-wire volume control is useful in theory. I have not tried it with an iPhone as I don't own one. You may at first notice the volume level doesn't seem as loud as in-ear phones and it really isn't, but that is a good thing. Your hearing is protected and you don't even need the full volume when in outdoor sports situations when you WANT to hear your surroundings as well as your music.
The problem, and it's a big one, is that the volume slider lets in so much sweat while exercising that it ruins the connection. After a handful of uses, the sound became sporadic- only coming through one ear sometimes, sometimes no sound at all, etc. The sweat (water!) corrodes the connection right at a crucial point. It is an opening to the wires, so there is no way around it. I think I'll try soldering the wires without the slider to see if that works. I would not buy these again.
However, I have had one problem with them... when I'm using them on a call, the people I'm talking to often tell me there's an echo (they can hear their own voice). Taking out the headset fixes this, so it must be what's causing the problem.
It seems to improve if I turn the volume down, so for now I'm trying to see if I can make them work, because other than that, they're great.
Needless to say, I sent these back. I'm still searching for the perfect iPhone earphones with ear hooks! Any suggestions?
The sound quality of these headphones is fair to good. The ear attachment mechanism is unique and works great for biking because it leaves you ear canal completely open. If using these with an ipod keep in mind that the volume control is a resistive slider mechanism and not the digital volume control like the head phones that come with your ipod.
