These headphones bill themselves as being especially well suited to the gym and other kinds of exercise, so if you need headphones for that reason, rest assured that these love up to their claims. They stay in your ear even while moving, cancel out background noise, and have some controls attached to the cord for easy stopping/starting.
The first thing I noticed when using these headphones is that the cable they come with is made of a rubbery material that I've not seen on any other headphones. It might be more durable, it certainly seems sturdy, but I have to say it is a bit strange to touch and I didn't really like it. I found it distracting even.
The headphones themselves are great. Audio quality is very good, though the bass can be a little overpowering. They fit comfortably in my ear, with it without the larger plastic fitting that some people like to keep on, and they stayed in during exercise and lots of movement, which is key.
The controls attached are pretty basic, allowing you to pause and start music, answer calls, and adjust the volume. More controls to skip back a song would make this a really great feature, but as it is the controls are standard and work well.
I found visually these headphones are very stylish and quite small, so they don't stand out too much and you won't feel weird wearing them in the gym. They also come with a few different size options for the ear buds, which is great for those with particularly small or large ears.
-Comfortable and stable in the ear
-Audio quality good
-Controls for music or calls
-Bass somewhat overpowering
