Excellent in-ear headphones with memory foam eartips
I purchased this in-ear headphone as a Christmas treat. I have got to say its worth every single penny. At first I find it hard to I purchased this in-ear headphone as a Christmas treat. I have got to say its worth every single penny. At first I find it hard to adjust the eartips but after awhile I got the hang of it. I changed the eartips to memory foam ones which I bought from eBay called MoBeast. The memory foam eartips are extremely comfortable compared to silicon eartips. …

Almost perfect, but replace the tips
These aren't cheap, but they are very good indeed. Extremely easy to use, high quality audio, good battery life, and being able to These aren't cheap, but they are very good indeed. Extremely easy to use, high quality audio, good battery life, and being able to do away with the cable to the 'phone is liberating.
Only 4 stars for two reasons:
- The "patented secure fit, ultra-comfortable and secure" tips are awful - uncomfortable and won't stay in place. Easily fixed by replacing them with some Comply memory foam tips.
- There's no way to reverse left and right when wearing them over-ear
But overall, still excellent. …

They fit like a dream (you may need to change the ear tips around to get the correct fit) They stay put in my ears and block out a fair amount of outside sound if you get the right fit. Aside from they they just sound great.
Expensive ..... Yes, but well worth it. …

Good sound but definitely not sweat proof,
I recently bought a pair of these for training as they claim to be sweat proof. They aren't the first pair lasted about a month be I recently bought a pair of these for training as they claim to be sweat proof. They aren't the first pair lasted about a month before they broke. The staff in the apple store were very helpful and replaced them with no fuss.
The second pair then lasted about 5 weeks before they also stopped working. I took these back to apple and got a refund.
If you want a pair of wireless headphones for training and you sweat a lot don't buy these they won't last and at £149.95 they are also a bit on the expensive side. Also I found that they don't staying very well.
Although I must say that the staff in the apple store were very helpful and understanding on both occasions the I went in. …

Better than some wired headphones
Recently popped by my local Apple store to get a new set of headphones. In the past I've had Atomic Floyd's (excellent headphone Recently popped by my local Apple store to get a new set of headphones. In the past I've had Atomic Floyd's (excellent headphones) and Beats Solo's (ok but too bulky for day to day travel), I was considering another wired set of headphone then I spotted these. If you're worried that there's a trade off between sound quality and lack of wires don't, I've had wired headphones at the same price that sound worse The sound quality is actually excellent clear mids and highs and not too much bass, vocals come out clear without distortion. One thing that comes up in a lot of reviews is the fit of these headphones. It's ultimately down to the shape of your ears but if you spend time trying the different sizes then the fit isn't a problem, I spent some time working through the different sizes of hooks and buds and having 2 different shaped inner ears I found the mix that works now they're glued in. You have 2 options wear them under ear or over ear, I found the under ear option pointless as you still have the wire dangling so no different from wired headphones, but over ear they are great, it takes a little getting used to the positioning of the wire but once you have that right you don't notice the wires at all, which is the main seller for me as I was sick of wires catching and phono plugs wearing out in my pockets with the bluebuds theres no way the wire catches or breaks and the battery really does last around 8 hours. Overall excellent headphones which I will buy again well worth the price. …
