Prior to the MX75's, I had tried a lot of different earphones for exercise. I always ended up spending a considerable part of my run either holding one earphone in or readjusting them and it drove me spare. These earphones solved the problem immediately.
I found the best way to use these earphones is to put the wire under my shirt and then use the included clip on my collar to hold the wire in place. I never have to adjust my earphones during a run and the sound quality is outstanding. I don't notice the Bass problems that others have mentioned, but then again, I use these only for exercise.
Money well spent and purpose built for runners!!!
IMPORTANT: I have tested 10 different types of sets in the search for the PERFECT runner's earphones that always stay in your ears, that never need to be re-adjusted and that sound great. The search is over now. They are the Sennheiser PMX70 (they make a newer model, the PMX80). Look no further for the perfect long distance runner's earphones. Buy them, test them out and then come back and write me here about your experience with them. It cost me a lot of time and money to narrow it down to this one set of earphones (Sennheiser PMX70) - now you don't have to waste your own time and money and you can skip right to purchasing the long distance runner's dream earphone. If you purchase and test the Sennheiser PMX70, you will be simply amazed by how it is complete in all of the areas that runner's need/seek in their earphones. Good luck and happy running!
The trick to unlocking the full sound potential is to find the right fit for your ears. In my case, this has taken a couple of hours time experimenting with the included ear adapters/pads, but the reward is rich sound with smooth low-end bass, detailed mid-range, and balanced highs. I cannot stress the importance of fit enough - without the proper fit, they sound tinny and weak.
In conclusion, if you are a runner looking for excellent sound and a secure fit, definitely consider these.
Let me cut to the chase,
Pros:- Good sound quality.Contrary to several comments on bass issues n stuff, I find the overall audio throughput good enough to boost your adrenaline at the gym. Coming from someone who owns a Bose QC2 and a Koss studio headphone, you get the point.
Good fit.I have tried doing pretty much everything with these guys on - running, skipping, pull ups, push ups, crunches and of course some serious lifting.They never let go! If you are capable off shrugging them off your ears, you need to be in the olympics!
You have different sizes of rubber stoppers to choose from depending on the size of your ear, and they plug right under the top of your inner ear lobe without causing any discomfort.
Good length.I normally wear them under my tshirt with the cable running down my back.They are lengthy enough to provide that extra flexibility for any complex moves you perform.
Cons:- The cable although lengthy, tends to coil like a spring.It is not a problem for the patient soul, but if you are the type who does not like to untangle things, you have a good 30 seconds to spell out a mouthful.
Tendency to get lost! Just kidding, thats about it folks. These guys are a good investment and a great companion at the gym. Get a pair without any 2nd thoughts!
ps: If you don't mind the striking green color, go for the cheaper MX75 ones.I did not see a great deal of difference between the two.

These things are still going after 3 years of hard use!
They are a bit gummed up and dirty, but they still work. I will probably buy a new set this year.
