Unfortunately I had to ding a star on these. While the sound quality is awesome and the fit works well in the gym, my control talk started flaking out on me after a particuarly hard run on the treadmill. First the volume up button stopped working. Then both volume up and down. Then they would cause my iPod to randomly jump to the next track or fast forward. I called Monster to get a warranty replacement. I have to say I was not overly impressed with their customer service. They won't send out my replacement until they receive the defective pair and evaluate them. I was supposed to pay for shipping the defective unit too, but they sent me a fed-ex label after complaining about that. They only had blue in stock to replace them. I asked about the prevelence of the problem, to which he responded that "there is a new version out". These are on a closeout sale now, so I think they've redesigned them, hopefully have fixed the problem, and moved on. I wonder if I will get the next gen of these when my replacement pair fails in 4 months or so? I can't believe that they claim you can put them in the washer machine yet they can't withstand some sweat in the gym.
So no apology from Monster, no quick replacement (2 weeks is what I was told), no assurance it won't happen again. Can't imagine that attitude will do well for their brand! I paid a premium price for these, I would have expected premium customer service when things went wrong. At least Amazon turned around my initial return quickly when my very first pair wouldn't seat right in my left ear because the pivot of the earbud was too stiff.
With the new pair, I will be more careful about getting sweat on the control talk piece.
--- End of Update ---
I'm a music junkie who hasn't been in the gym for ~10 years. When I recently started a gym routine again, I decided to look into the options for using my iPod nano in the gym. I didn't want to risk ruining my good Shure earphones with sweat and I wanted better sound quality than from a cheap pair of earbuds. I found these and was intrigued. I sweat a LOT and wanted to get earbud style earphones that could withstand the sweat. Supposedly you can even put these guys in the washer machine!
First, the sound quality...WOW! I was impressed right off the bat with the strong bass without any comprimise in the midrange and highs. I'm not a basshead, but for the gym, a little extra bass is welcomed! I get the sound quality of my Grado, Sony, and Shure headphones in a package suitable for the gym. YES!!
Second - fit and design. It took a little practice to get these in right. The instructions were helpful - the key is to hold down the flap that secures the 'bud in your ear and insert the 'bud in your ear so you get a good seal. Once you have a good seal, let go of the flap and it will lock into place. The sound nozzles pivot within the 'bud body which is a clever little design element that lets them seal and lock in comfortably. I tried these out in my house for a few hours and found that the flap started to hurt my ears after a couple of hours. I swapped out the ones that were on in the package (medium) with the ones labeled small and that took care of it.
The only hiccup I had was the nozzle in the right 'bud in my first pair was stiff and wouldn't move around freely. Because of this, it was really hard to insert properly. Amazon quickly sent me out a replacement pair which are perfectly fine.
Third - usability. They are very comfortable and light. The flat cable is pretty much tangle free. The buttons are great for pausing the music and changing tracks. The isolation is good, but not to the point of feeling completely isolated. If I pause the music, I can have a conversation with somebody. This is convenient so I don't have to pop a 'bud out to say "can I rotate in?". However, when the music is playing, I'm in my own little world of musical bliss. The cable is just the right length for me to use with the belt clip I use. If I were using an armband, I'd be concerned about taking up the extra slack, but I imagine you have that issue with any pair of 'phones. I only wish the switch wasn't as bulky as it is, but you can't have everything. It's till lightweight and hasn't presented a problem for me.
At $99, these are a great deal. These have made my workout routine much more enjoyable. I highly recommend these.
What I want in a workout headphone is...
-Something that won't fall out because of sweat or strenuous activity
-Small form factor (no neck band or over/around the ear clip)
-Does not need to be charged
...and as a bonus, something that actually works with Apple devices
Not a long list, but still almost impossible to find. These little guys have it all though. Plenty of volume, heavy bass, perfect minimal inner ear clips that will never let the buds fall out, and a 3-button ControlTalk remote that has worked seamlessly with every Apple product I've used from a 4th Generation iPod Shuffle, to an iPhone 4, 5, and 6. I have yet to find ANY other gym headphone with a 3 button remote that works as well (or at all) with iPods and iPhones. Oddly, even the updated version from Monster (the iSport Victory), which is virtually identical to the Immersion, does not work at all with my iPod Shuffle, and barely works (just the center button) with my iPhone 6... both of which work flawlessly (yes all 3 buttons) with the old Immersions.
The Immersions might not have audiophile quality performance, but they're made for the gym, not for reference. And I've had to re-glue the little rubber cover that goes on the remote 3-4 times, and one ear clip broke. They were also pretty expensive just for workouts ($150). That said though, they are still the best for the job. Oh, and they're also waterproof and apparently machine washable, although I don't think that's a great idea.
