Great for Running!
Just wanted to chime in and add that I've been using these for my runs, which go for about 30 min across various terrains. Overall I'd recommend them if you're primary use for them is working out, they give decent sound and stay put. Please feel free to read on for more details:
1. They stay in the ear canal comfortably. I had to switch to the larger silicone inserts but after that, they work great. I wear them on 30 min. runs with no problems at all. I also wear them at work for roughly 4 hours increments and they're still comfortable.
2. They don't jostle around while on the move. I was worried that while I was running they would move up and down and rub the ears, but they feel like they're staying put.
3. They have a controller at the y split. One of the things I didn't care for with the stock iPhone 5 headphones is that the sound controls/mic were on one side. With it on the y split of this I can get to the controls easily with either hand.
4. Low profile. I was also concerned that since they went over the ear that they'd have a really big profile, but once you get it behind the ear they aren't all that noticeable, especially when compared w/ other IEMs.
The Bad (or why it didn't get 5 stars)
1. The bass is lacking. I listen to trance and EDM, so a lot of my stuff loves having a nice full bass. While the bass isn't terrible, it could be better. I've had some IEMs that can make my head rumble while listening.
Due to the lower bass, I end up having to turn up the volume a bit more than on some other headphones. This isn't an end of the world thing at all, but I can't give these buds a 5 star with this shortcoming.
Overall, I would recommend these headphones if you're looking for a good workout pair. They'll also do for day to day use, but you might want some more bass. …

Great build quality and sound but...
This may be a bit of a personal preference, the headphones have great sound quality (pretty good high, mid and low range) - as lon g as you put them in your ear properly, these being the in-ear variety of headphones. The build quality is very good i find, and the wrap around the ear design is excellent, and will not come loose under stress (perfect for the running/gym going which i use these for). And the mic sounds great for calls.
So Sennheiser got it right this time? Well, almost...
First, the location and size of the i-controller/mic. The controller is too small, and buttons too close together without enough separation or height to tell the difference - you will frequently miss the play/pause button for either of the volume up/down; which is an annoying distraction while running and want to skip songs, and dont want to look for the button.
Second, the location of the controller, which is located where the cables for the left/right earpieces split. I would prefer the controller be higher up on the right earpiece (like the Apple headphones) so its easy to get to (other workout headphones do this). Size wouldnt be as much of an issue, but i usually tuck my headphones under my shirt/jacket for running/gym so the cable doesnt get in my way. Sweatproof headphones are awesome like that. The location of the controller makes it so i have to have an unusual amount sticking out at the top so i can get to the controller (worst while running and wearing a jacket, make it difficult to get to the controller). That, or keep the headphones on the outside bouncing around during your workout...
Would i recommend these? If you can get past the ergonomics/use of the size/location of the controller, these make great sport headphones. …

Super comfortable and they stay put!
I really like these headphones! They replaced the Monster iSports that I had.
Great over the ear design keeps them in no matter what you're doing. The cord doesn't pull them out and this also keeps it away from your face. They are really light and the most comfortable phones I've ever had. Controls are easy to access and click.
The sound is pretty good, but the upper mids are a bit harsh. I'm not a huge fan of sound signature, but I can live with it because the design makes up for it and the bass is good. Cable is a little thin but the build quality is great so they should last. A little better sound and these would be perfect. Worth the money. …

Comfortable, stay in place, and great sound quality!
LOVE these headphones. I originally got them for the gym when I got tired of Apple's In-Ear headphones falling out and feeling gro ssly sweaty in my ear. These are so comfortable that they've been elevated to my every day headphones. I have very small ears, and usually headphones can feel uncomfortable, but the small size rubber tip is perfect. The clip they come with helps to prevent any annoying thumping noises the wire might cause when running. My only minor complaint is that like any in-ear headphone, the rubber earbud tip can fall off if you pull the headphones out of your bag too roughly. For the price, an awesome and reliable buy. …

Sports Headphones with good functions.
Pros – Stylish, attention to detail that show off the headphones.
Cons – Does not list all features of the remote .
More secure than Fort Knox, had to cut the plastic securing tabs. Scissors and cables are not compatible.
Sound – I'm no expert so I'll leave that to the music and sound boffins. Way better than the last headphones, much clearer and good quality.
Price – A good price point compared with other brands with less features.
Fit – At first I thought the earhooks were too soft to keep the headphone in a good position on the ear but after fitting the small buds they stayed in place.
Another point of soft earhooks is how comfortable they are after prolonged exercise with sun glasses on.
Clip – A little plastic clip that hooks onto the main wire. If there is a weakness its here, the clip will not last long.
NOTE: It would have been nice to have the remote slot into the clip so the location of the remote could have been found more easily when running or in my case cycling. It just needs to be a bit larger and more robust.
Pros – Small, Stylish and does what it says in the owners manual. The main middle button controls most features by pressing it multiple times.
Cons – The Pro’s are the con’s in this instance. The remote is too small and the buttons need to be bigger. If you have big fingers, problems may arise pressing the button when you are on the move. IE Running and cycling.
Call – Call answering and Mic all works as it should. The main center button starts and stops a phone call.
Durability – I will have to use the headphones for six months and add to the review regarding the durability of the headphones.
Conclusion – Been looking for a headphone set that deliver the features that the Sennheiser OCX685i headphones offer. And they offer a lot for the price, sporty, weather resistant, good features for on the move. I recommend them. 4.6 Stars …

Easily My New Favorite
So i've been a bit of a headphone enthusiast, spending money where I could save by purchasing beats, ibeats, beats pro, studio, et c. Anyways, for the price of the OCX 685i there's no other pair of headphones I would recommend more from my experience. Big pro on the comfort; they don't fall out, nor feel tiresome on my ears.
The sound quality is also fantastic at low to medium-high volumes. Since the base is less powerful than ibeats for example, there's less need to crank the volume for clarity anyhow. (Unless your hearing is damaged, in which case i'm sorry to hear that.) (ALSO sorry for that pun.) Hope this helps at all. …
