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.Read more ›
So I did a bit of research regarding the type of earphone that would tick all the boxes, and decided on these Sennheiser/Adidas CX 680..
Well I've just been the gym today with them, and what can I say from from running to floor excerise to weight lifting... Superb! (stayed in throughout) Sound is great not high end compared to my IE8's but still rich & solid, bass solid & treble nice.. most importantly they were very comfortable, it felt like there was nothing in my ears.. yes that comfortable. Another plus they don't come out of your ears at all, this is due to cleverly designed fins which make them even more secure in your ears. They also come with loads of different size attachments, 3 sizes of fins, buds.. so you can find the perfect fit easily.
So for me overall perfect piece of kit for training.. they won't disappoint guaranteed!
On the down side the lead is just too short to use from a pocket or bum bag and the extension makes it too long. I have got round this problem by putting my pod on my waist band (I don't like it on my arm). Also if the lead bounces about too much you can hear your own footsteps. This is solved by using the clip to lessen wire movement. These are relatively minor problems and overall I am very happy with the product. I run ultra marathons and usually on rough trails, I have worn these ear phones for over 4 hours on a few occasions and had no problems. So if you are thinking of buying these for running I have given them the ultimate trial and they passed with flying colours.
Despite the little rubber fin things the earphones still come loose in my ears after just a few minutes running. This is extremely disappointing as this is the reason I bought them. The sound quality is also relatively poor for headphones at this price. I also own a pair of Sure headphones whose design does not, unfortunately, lend itself to use while exercising. These cost half the price of the Sennheisers and the sound quality is noticably superior.
The acid test is if I lost them would I buy another set? I don't think so.
To finish, I would say that i love them so much that I use them in the bus or the tube even if they are not the most glamorous to wear for a girl, but I would recommend them for people living their lives intensely through sports & music.
