    NICE SURPRISE!!

    • Written by from VAN NUYS

    I have a small home recording studio and I own a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50, considered one of the best sellers for studio monitoring. When I put on the Sennheiser PMX685i, I was very surprised on how good these headphones sound. Nice deep and clear bass even on high volume and bright and crisp highs. Comparing them to the AT's, they're not that far off on quality of sound. The best $80 I've spent on headphones. Plus you can still hear what's going on around you but at the same time they feel like they have a noise cancelling feature on... Highly recommend this headphones...

    I have a drawer full of headphones that I've tested for running. These are the first ones that I REALLY like. They fit well and have excellent sound.

    Active? They're worth every penny

    • Written by from Tehachapi

    I ride horses, bike and work on a ranch and these go w/ me everywhere and get the job done. Lightweight, comfortable, stay put and great sound. Plus the "at your finger tips" control keep me from having to dig in my pocket for my iPod to stop, skip or adjust the volume. These are the best headphones ever for active people.

    Great all-around headphones!

    • Written by from Turlock

    I was in the market for a new pair of headphones and, having been duped by some cheaper headphones in the past, I was willing to spend a few extra bucks for some decent ones. I have been using the headphones that come standard with the iPhone/iPod for years and really have no complaints about them. Although I enjoy clear, full-range sound, I am no audiophile; the Apple earbuds fit the bill just fine for me. And, up until the rubber surround on the earbuds deteriorated and came off, I had no issues with them staying in my ears either.

    These were an excellent choice. The fit is quite comfortable, although the band around the back of the head doesn't sit as close to my head as I thought it would. That is minor, though, and I don't notice at all while I'm wearing them. I have worn them without the foam covers for a few runs (20-40 minutes per run) and don't have any complaints of ear pain or anything like that. The sound is crisp and clear, although it is a little biased towards the bass than the highs. Again, a minor thing (besides, the bass is typically the driving sound for your pace). The only thing I've noticed is wind noise. I run outside and whenever I'm running into a breeze, the wind noise is noticeable, however, not unbearable. For me, it's not a huge issue, but something to think about if you think it will be.

    The volume control/microphone is actually pretty close to the headphones. I run the cable underneath my shirt and the controls sit above my collar. I just use the included clip to tether the cable to my collar and I'm good to go! The cable is also more than long enough for me to have my iPod attached to the waistband of my shorts without any pulling of the cord. All-in-all, I am happy with these and would recommend them to anyone searching for their next pair of headphones.

    Excellent product

    • Written by from Cypress

    I've had the 680i version for over a year. I've logged over 500 miles running with them. I just received these as a Christmas gift. After two runs I can say these have improved on the 680i. They are lighter, they sound even better and the control is easy to operate. Highly recommended.

    Worth it!

    • Written by from Plano

    I've gone through two pair of Klipsch S4i's, two Apple sets, two Sony sets and none of them come close to these. They were even smart enough to put the controls high enough that they won't be inside your shirt if you route your wire that way. Sweat ruined the mic and controls on both of my Klipsch that way. Amazing bass response, comfortable, don't move a bit. Everyone has different ears, but if they fit, they rock!

    I have the Sennheiser headset for my TV. Remarkable product, incredible sound. Will now purchase PMX 685i for running and working out. For person that lost foam pads, go to Amazon.com, search Sennheiser products and you will find what you need.

    Great, comfortable headphones. Unfortunately a couple weeks of having them and I've somehow lost one of the foam ear pads :( Trying to figure out how to get a replacement.

    Great product!! Have had several... Phillips, Bose, NIke, etc. and these are the most comfortable and lasting pair I've tried. They stay on, you can adjust to let in as much noise as you'd like, and have plenty of cord to put your phone in pocket, armband, etc.
