It is ok product but not as good as previous seinheiser earphone.

Bought these on balance of previous reviews received. I’ve now used then a dozen times or so and for me their perfect. No major wind noise as some reviews mentioned, but enough background noise to allow awareness of surroundings. They really don’t slip at all. Have them for a sony xperia z1. All the hands free functions work fully.

Not wireless as it would have been the most perfect product on the market. Pitty it is not wireless as it would have been the most perfect product on the market.

Comments from buyers

“Fits even small ears, Good bass sound and great fit., The best for sports.”

Not just for samsung galaxy. The packaging of this headset states prominently that it’s for samsung galaxy (while mentioning other brands in a smaller typeface) and amazon’s product title mentions galaxy. I don’t know why this is since it’ll work with any android device. A partnership deal maybe?the headset comes with a carrying pouch and a cable clip. I like the look and feel of it, with its green cable and rubbery remote buttons. It’s lightweight and feels about as comfortable as this type of headset is ever going to get. It’s a sports headset; the emphasis is on secureness rather than comfort. It feels a lot nicer than other neckband earphones i’ve used in the past. In use the headset sounds great, as you should expect from sennheiser. There are no earphone covers provided, when really there should be.

Works great with iphone 5 and ipod in the household. I have a cheap pair of earphones which has ear hooks to make sure it stays in place. The problem is they are fiddly to wear and take some time. These are quick and the sound is awesome, loud enough. Decent lows commensurate with the form-factor. They florescent, complementing my visibility vest so are really suitable for early morning/ late evening jogging. 2 mm is cable is long enough to allow the phone to be located in my pants pocket. They are waterproof and this makes a great sports companion, since it’s a sure thing that there will be sweat when one’s working out.

Gymn headphones are a real challenge. I’ve tried the hook type, the overhead type and the neck type. Obviously, you want them to stay on whilst running and i find the ‘hook’ type a fail for that. Which leaves the overhead or the back of head bands. The overhead ones work but look a bit daft, these also work and stay-in solid through a 10k run. No issues with not hearing when i get sweaty ears which has cause problems with the more spongy designs you get on some headphones. A great test for me is to have the treadmill on at a fair pace with all the noise that generates and play ‘seven nation army’ by the white stripes – if you can hear the signature bass riff crystal clearly above all that background then they’re good gymn headphones and these passed that test. I was using the apple variant, and it worked with my later generation ipod touch. Note that because i was using it with my ipod i can’t comment on how well the call functionality with iphone works.

Good bass sound and great fit. . Been looking for some decent running headphones for a long time. First long run today in these was a great experience. Great sound quality, lots of bass but not so much that you can’t hear what is going on at junctions and crossing roads. Stay in ears very well, no mid run adjusting necessary. Only slight drawback is the rigid headband can pick up some vibration and this is not helped by the control switch being so close to the headband, which can jump about a bit. Overall really great and the vibration thing is not that noticeable.

I really like the functionallity. I really like the functionallity. Sound quality is really good and, at the same time, it lets in the sounds from the surroundings. This feature is really usefull for traffic awareness. Also, it can stand a lot of rain and swet. However, is is very fragile. I have owned three, but now the third set is broken at exactly the same place, and i give up. Five stars for sound and functionality.

Great design if you like to run with maximum stability and don’t want to hear your foot steps like ‘thuds’ like you do with in-ear headphones. The flat shaped cable is brilliantly designed for not tangling (i really hate constantly untangling my iphone earbud cables)the sound is great and even accross the eq range (but obviously not supreme quality – if you notice any lack of audio quality, you’re not exercising enough).

Best sports headphones ever. I’ve been through a few headphones whilst doing my jogging and they’ve always had something wrong and were imperfect, not these. I know they are a little more expensive but can’t recommend these highly enough. They sit around my head perfectly and slot nicely into my ears. The headphones do not budge but they’re not too tight either. The added volume control and the little clip on the chord are great features as well as the chord being stronger than those i’ve previously had. I do hope they last a long time as i do not want to have to change them, they are fab.

Decent sound and build quality. Decent sound and build quality. Ear buds slightly too large for my ears and no covers are provided to soften them up. Also cable too long if you are using an arm strap to mount your phone or mp3 player.

Great for those with unusual shaped ears. Great for those with unusual shaped ears. So light you can forget you are wearing them. Powerful bass and good microphone for calls. Splash proof for sweat etc when working out.
