I run almost everyday for an hour and have always been looking for a nice headphone that sticks in my ears. I will have to say that these headphones really are comfy and fit well. First 2 days of using it was heaven.

Day 3 was the day i started having issues on the right side. Volume was soft on that side and in some occasion there was no sound. And till today, i am still waiting for my replacement to come in. I am not sure i was purely unlucky with a lemon set or if it was damaged by sweat.

Just 2 days ago, i took it out again to try and found a bigger horror. My headphones smell like a damn smelly gym!!! See, the cables are not insulated by rubber but more fabric material (not sure what material it is) and while i wipe it down daily, it absorbs my sweat.

I will still keep my 1-1 exchange for traveling purpose but for events that makes me perspire lots, this is staying far away from it.

All this for less than 2 weeks of experience with a rather costly headphones......

I bought these headphones to run and liked the fact that they were supposed to be water/sweat proof and they had a built in remote. They are light, fit great, and have awesome bass and overall sound quality. I'd made the mistake in the past of running with headphones with an inline remote that were NOT for sweat and the remote stopped working almost immediately, as soon as it got wet. Unfortunately, I only got two runs in before the same fate befell these. Initially the volume kept dropping off without me touching the remote, then all the buttons stopped working. Since these are supposed to be weather resistant I can only assume this was a fluke and I plan to order a replacement pair. The sound and fit would have gotten these a 5 star rating if they had survived the sweat. If the next pair fails, which is a distinct possibility since the only other reviewer on here had eerily similar results, these will become a 1 star product...

*Update: I ordered a second pair of these headphones and after running in them twice, the inline remote stopped working again, because a bit of sweat dripped down the cable into the remote. This was identical to the experience with my first pair. While the sound quality is great, these are anything but weatherproof adventure headphones. Beware.

While most of you are probably familiar with Westone legendary W- and UM- series of Balanced Armature multi-driver IEMs (ranging from single to six driver designs), they also offer ADV series – an Adventure Series for active lifestyle. This series has two models, Alpha and Beta, both sharing the same 6.5mm dynamic micro driver, removable reflective heavy duty cable + remote, and ipx-3 weather resistant rating. They also share the same accessory package, including premium Westone eartips and a heavy duty case. From the looks, the difference is mostly in the shape of the shell and the fitment: over ear, more traditional with Alpha and wire up/down barrel style with Beta. Furthermore, their unibody design uses a different shell material: magnesium w/Alpha and zinc w/Beta. It’s hard to tell about sound difference but considering the same dynamic micro driver and metal body with a narrow nozzle I have a feeling sound is going to be similar as well. Thus, if you are looking into Westone Adventure Series, currently you have a choice of $49 Beta or $149 Alpha. You do the math and determine which fitment suits your taste better, and I will move on with my review of ADV Beta!

Westone packaging never disappoints because no matter if it’s their budget or mid-tier or flagship model – they go all the way with a packaging box featuring detailed graphics, complete list of features, and description of accessories. Though I can’t comment on unboxing experience, I can tell you that accessories are definitely worth Adventure quality. You get their 5 color coded pairs of silicone STAR eartips with each color corresponding to a different fitment size, and also 5 color coded pairs of foam TRU-Fit eartips in 5 different sizes.

I bought these because they are supposedly for outdoor use, which means they are supposed to be able to handle moisture. However, the first pair I had very quickly immediately began cutting out when it was damp or if I was sweating. I assumed they were just defective so I exchanged them for a new pair. The second pair, after three months, has started doing the same thing. They are simply not durable or sturdy headphones and despite the claim of being weather resistant, they definitely are not. These were basically a rip off.

I found that they little considerations that added up to an overall pleasant experience with the headset. What stood out for me was...

- In a rugged headset for active users, you should go for threaded over rubber since rubber snags so easily. It would catch on anything and everything otherwise. I had returned headsets that yanked out of my ears with basic movement.
- Although its personal preference, I found the foam ear pieces to be especially comfortable. It almost made those loops around my ears meaningless since it was a snug fit.
- Replaceable cords! Any headset that died on me (usually after a year or so) was due the cabling breaking up inside. At the very least, you don't have to chuck the thing should that happen to you.
- Sound. I mention that last because its easy to find a pair of earphones that sound great. But not many of them are bundled with the everything you need to take care of the unit. It's definitely the first I've seen a wax cleaning tool come with a headset.

I'd read this while considering...
