PROS: While they were working, they were great! The sound quality was good, and the bass was well-balanced to the other tones. I listen to a mix of heavy rock, dubstep, and DnB...and these headphones provided a great listening experience. I have small ears, and with the adjustable piece at the lowest setting, these fit perfectly. The swap-able earbuds felt good in the ear. The case is outstanding with protecting the headphones while in your gym bag.
CONS: Unfortunately, these did not end up being as reliable as I had hoped. I'm a fan of Adidas products, and my audiophile friends give rave review of Sennheiser products. I figured these would be a match made in heaven, but apparently the marriage success rate is about as good as the average US marriage rate. :-( The right earbud starting slowly giving out after 8 months of use, then died at month 11 of use.
SUMMARY: I would expect "sport" headphones to be built to last. I only do weightlifting and running, so sweat is the only thing beating up these earphones. If these didn't break with only 11 months of ownership, this would be 5 stars.
a) decent sound
b) something that would stay in my ears while I jogged on the treadmill
c) something that didn't put a huge dent in my wallet
These headphones meet all of my expectations! They do hurt a little bit after a while of being in your ear, so I wouldn't use them extensively. But they are perfect for running, they've never budged once! No more do I run with my hands constantly adjusting buds in my ears! It's so nice. And they don't hurt while I'm jogging. I only notice them after about 45-60 minutes of use and usually when I'm walking during my cool down. I wasn't looking for phenomenal sound (if I were, I would go with Bose because they are my favorite in terms of quality of sound) because I didn't want to spend tons of money for something I wanted mainly while jogging. But I think the quality of sound is pretty good, definitely not bad.
So, it depends on what you're looking for in your headphones, but if you're looking for a standard pair of headphones that have decent quality of sound, these are it. Decent price. And, if you produce buckets of sweat while you jog like me, these STILL don't budge in your ears. And trust me, I've tried many pair. Have used them for a good couple of months now. Very happy.
These headphones have excellent sound quality across all music, from oldies to led zeppelin to new R&B(great bass). They fit well in the ear and stay there, as the plastic is firmer. The 3 size adjustments are also nice. They are in-ear models, so have a slightly different feel from most others that have foam-like padding on the headphones that sits outside the ear canal. These almost feel like having small earplugs in, which can be good or bad depending on your needs. They definitely block out more outside noise, so you don't hear the music at the gym that you don't want to. However, if you plan on using them to workout with a partner(or anywhere you want to have conversation while working out), you may have to take them out to hear somebody else talk. My old ones I could just pause my music and keep the headphones in, but these block out much more sound. This may also be dangerous if you use them jogging in an urban environment where you can't hear cars or people yelling. These are also water proof so you can rinse w water after your workout to keep them from getting buildup.
Overall, I think they're a great buy. I am loyal to this brand after my previous purchase, and will hopefully get good use out of these.
My only complaint concerns the advertised noise blocking. My samsung ear buds that were included with my galaxy s3 block noise more effectively than these. I still give sennheiser cx 685 headphones 5 stars though because at higher volumes it's not a big deal and it doesn't have to be uncomfortably loud to achieve noise blocking. Overall a great product.
