As an avid gym-goer and music connoiseur, I simply cannot rate these headphones highly enough.
Starting with the sound: any reviewers who claim that this piece of kit delivers mediocre sound quality is a sandwich short of a picnic (sorry guys - maybe it's time for you to go for a hearing test?) The rendering is exceptionally high fidelity for an earbud-type headphone, and delightfully balanced, with clear trebles, meaty midtones and substantial (though not overbearing) bass. Contrary to other reviews, the sound does not distort at high volumes. If you are listing to music at a volume high enough to cause these to distort, then it is DEFINITELY time for you to book a hearing test.
Moving on now to the sport element: the design of these headphones is simply exceptional. This is the only product - and I've tested my fair share - which does not budge despite an onslaught of veritable rivers of sweat. The design is so ingenious, from the positioning of the buds on their plastic mount to the shape of the earhook itself, that the noise cancelling in-ear effect is never compromised, and the fitting itself is weightless to the point of you forgetting it's there at all. The feature of the inline sponge sweat protector seems to be unique to the market, and it is frankly brilliant. It's washable, protects the integrity of the delicate sound-reproducing membrane of the headphone, and this product comes with a spare set of sponges for those of you who really effervesce copious amounts of salty juices.
Finally, the issue of phone compatability. Yes - the music features seem to be incompatible with some types of phone, but this should not come as a suprise to anyone...Read more ›
Although these appear to be more robust and lighter than the CX680 as part of its improvements, the biggest flaw is the over-ear rubberised clips. Lots of people have complained about how tinny the sound is from these headphones, well they are not tinny at all, in fact they produce very good sound indeed but they do need to be properly inserted in the ear, with a tight seal to get a full range of the headphones, this is what all ear-canal headphones require.Read more ›
Overall, the sound quality is fine. They lack on bass. Bass is improved by making sure that you have a snug fit (You have 3 sizes of buds supplied, and you should choose the snuggest fit for your ears). Mid and high range sounds have some nice definition to them. I've also tried them for making calls from my iPhone and have had no problems whatsoever.
The mechanism seems solid and being water resistant, it doesn't matter if you're caught in the rain. The control has a nice positive feel to it and seems to be well made.
In conclusion, if you're bass obsessed, these aren't the earphones for you. If you want something for everyday listening, which won't break the bank, then these are probably as good as any in this price range.
