Excellent earphones for sports!
on May 31, 2013
I managed to get these from Amazon for $28.80, with free shipping. These buds are just excellent! The other reviews that said the mic portion was too heavy are for the MX 680. The MX680i comes with a fixed length cable that is fixed to the mic. The mic is small and light. The call quality is good and the controls work perfectly with the iPhone and buttons are easy to use (bare hands). The earphones work well when jogging, sounds great and have no issues with sweat (they are water resistant). I sweat buckets. The ear buds come with 3 sizes of fins and 4 sizes of ear sleeves/air pads. They fit perfect and don't come off while running. You need to take the time to try on the different sizes and combinations of sizes for the best fit for your ear. You just need a little patience and you will get the perfect fit. Try on different sizes of sleeves/airpad combinations as well as the angle of the fins. Strangely, I use the large fins on both sides, but with different size ear sleeves/air pads on either ear (right side L ear sleeve and left side S air pad).
I fully recommend them especially if you run with an i-device (and at the price they are going for now).
Edit: I have to change my rating to 4 stars cos the mic stopped working after a few runs. Too much hassle for me to ship back for warranty claim, so I will live with it. The rest of the functions still work fine (touch wood).
