Got these headphones for running use. The sound and the build quality is great. The cable material is the type that doesn't tangle and twist or move about too much when in use. These headphones have a remote, one of the reasons I chose this model. I don't think the remote is designed very well, especially for running (and these are sport headphones). The remote buttons are a little close together and when using the double press function to go to the next song it's hard to get it right every time. I have used the remote with and without gloves, it's next to impossible to use with gloves, although you can get lucky but it requires concentration which takes away from running. The feed back or tactile feel from the buttons isn't great. finally the remote is on the main line and not on one of the wires after the split going to the ear phone, this places the remote lower down and therefore inside your jacket as apposed near your neck where i think is a better location to access. So good headphones but not a great remote.
