These headphones have great sound quality and are very durable.
Eric Jones
I wear these headphones for long runs, gym workouts, soccer, bench weights and have never had a problem with them shifting out of my ears.

Here is my experience: After a month of light use, the left channel stopped working and within a week after that both channels died.

Great sounding headphones for jogging, ultra light weight over-the-ear neckband (16g), very secure fit, rinse clean with water. Instructions and 'manual' are a bit hidden, though.

I didn't like the lime green color of the Sen PMX70's, so I had first bought the nicely designed Nike-Philips neckband phones. They were THE perfect design for a runner. However, the left side went out after 3 weeks! I'm a 50yr old who has been lifting weights for years, but just started running 3yrs ago. I searched and researched for headphones for runners because I sweat like a horse, and I didn't want to waste money on another pair that wouldn't suit my purpose.

So the PMX80 Sport II had just come out. Better design than the 70's, but the price is very hefty at $55. Still, I needed what these said they could do. No regrets!

First, they sound great. They have a natural bass advantage because of the way they fit in your ears. Basically, they "fill" the entire gap. However, this can be a drawback of sorts; as sweat builds up and drips down the ear-way, the excess water can create a "seal" between your ear canal and the speaker of each bud. This in turn, can create an "underwater" sound, so to speak. I see this as a design flaw, despite the waterproof nature of these phones because the sound will become muffled. Not frequently, but this CAN/DOES happen. There is also one other little issue to mention; because of the way these fill the ear canal and form that "seal"...the rigid neckband will carry the slightest sound waves (vibration). A bouncing necklace...the excess wire that may touch the neckband, etc., will magnify the sound and carry it right to your ears. A picky and perhaps minor point, but I felt I should mention it. In reality, it's only happened a few times, and only happens after you're soaked with sweat. It can be stooped by simply adjusting the neckband with one fairly effortless movement.

At a lower price point I would probably be less critical. I also follow the reviews closely and trust them. I was apprehensive going in a little as I intended to buy buds to workout with. The wrap was a concern but the reviews were so positive about this unit that I gave it a shot.

I am not upset but not altogether satisfied either. This headphone is not as comfortable as I expected. That is not to say they are uncomfortable. They exert a little more pressure on my ear canal than expected (based on reviews that talked about not even feeling them) and getting the in-ear position correct requires some adjustment (maximizing sound by getting the driver pointed in the right direction).

I like them ok for running but working out is a little more work. Anytime I lay down on a bench at the gym, the back moves around requiring a readjustment. I do appreciate them being less sensitive to sweat. However the cord has a more rubbery tactile fell that tends to stick or grab things as you walk by at the gym a bit more.

I will likely continue to use these but may go back to buds for most applications. Buds have challenges of their own but these may end up being my choice for running only. At this price point that is a bit disappointing.

These are sturdy headphones and work as advertised to stay on during even a strenuous workout... however... if you have small ears like me, you'll be lucky if you can make it an hour. I love the durability, color, one cord design and the clip to hold the cord in place. I love everything except the fact that they kill my ears after just a short use. I wish the manufacturers would make a small and a large size of their popular products. If these were a bit smaller, I'd give them 5 stars. I give them 2 as they are because they really hurt!

Pro - good construction
Pro - stays on
Pro - good sound for the price
Pro - clip and one cord design

Con - ouch!!! Not for small ears

1. as with many products, there is no one perfect headphone. utlimately it comes down to for what one purpose one is going to use it.

2. with the above being said, i have several thoughts in re: these headphones compared to my other sennheiser compact headphones (PX 100 and PX200).

3. Pros:
* Nice quality design and craftsmanship.
* Very light.
* As advertised, these actually do fit well and are secure. i've tried numerous earbuds, in the ear "monitors" and they all either don't fit and fall out or are so secure that you can hear the headphone cords rubbing against your clothes etc... since these headphones are designed for those who do sports, it does succeed on it's primary goal. and thus, if you're main purpose is to have a decent pair of headphones for running, then these are a good choice for you.

4. Cons:
* sound quality. yes, in regards to sound quality, these heads really are lacking. if do not do a side by side comparison, the headphones will probably sound ok to you. however, if you know a thing or two about sound and are familiar with how your favorite music should sound, you'll realize after listening via these headphones for 20-30 minutes, that your favorite tunes just don't have the overall depth that you're accustomed to. i had a feeling that this was the case and thus i did a simple side by side comparison with my PX 100 and PX 200 and a pair of some sony wireless headphones. bottomline: these PMX 80 headphones had the "worst sound"--> ie the least amount of overall depth, the least amount of bass, and the treble was crisp but i would classify it as being a bit harsh. thus with extended listening and at higher volumes, things get uncomfortable.
