Good but not that good
on 7 February 2011
I bought these headphones to wear whilst running and training. Over the years I have bought numerous other sets but never been able to keep them in my ears long enough to enjoy the disraction of my favourite music while I suffered. After reading the positive reviews I decided to give these a last try before resigning myself to the fact that I would have to put up with the moronic bilge that is pumped out of most gym speakers. The reviews were mostly very impressive but I am afraid my experience is not so good.
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.
