After reading great reviews about the pmx70 i chose to go with the sennheiser sport pmx80 - primarily because i liked the orange colour over the green.€€i have only used apple headphones, so this was a major improvement. The package came and at first glance, the headphones seem lighter and more nimble than you would think - it really is quite small.€€however the fit around your ears are amazing. They stay on, but do not cause discomfort by being too tight. At first you will notice how deep the earpieces go into your ears, which was a new thing - but you get used to it, and it really is better. They are a great fit, and when working out, or sprinting for that matter, these wont budge.€€as for the sound quality, it lives up to the sennheiser name. Great amount of bass, and though it isnt noise cancelling, it does a pretty good job at that. They put the apple headphones to shame in terms of sound quality.€you will not be disappointed with the sound.€€it really does glow in the dark too, and i've ran it under water to clean after work outs, and i've had no problems. Does exactly what it says it would.€the cable is pretty sturdy, and ive onli had it for a week so i cannot see any wear and tear.€€these are very stylish, and practical headphones, providing you with a comfortable, and stable fit, with great quality sound.€i would recommend to any-one looking for headphones that would stay on, athletes especially - they really are water resistant (and sweat resistant...)€great quality product that delivers all that it promises.

First i just want to say that if you are a bodybuilder then these arent for you !

The first problem i came across was that you cant wear a hoody if you have these on ( because the hood of your hoody rubs against the neck band and moves the headphones about ) , i also noticed that ( because i have quite large traps because i am a bodybuilder ) even if i tilted my head backwards the neckband would press against my traps and move around and be really annoying ! as for the fit , they fit amazingly and do NOT come loose or fall out so that was the only reason i gave them one more than 1 star !

i then noticed that when you lay back on a bench or rest your head back against a bench the neckband slightly rubs against the bench and puts you off your set.

the next thing that went wrong was that after about 3 weeks or so the left earphone just decided to stop working ??? maybe i recieved a faulty pair but this just shouldnt happen at all !

i would say these would be great for skinny ( no trap ) runners ( who only run and dont go to the gym ) that never wear hoodys lol !

a product that i would recomend would be the twist to fit seinnheiser sport ones because they never ever failed me ( i stupidly lost them and decided to try and upgrade and try something different , a choice i now regret lol ). i guess you shouldnt try to fix something if it aint broke lol !

hope this helped

 Brilliant for gym

bought these for the sole purpose of going running and doing my workout - they are a dream. sit around the back of your neck and this is the only part that moves making sure they dont fall out your ears. what a great invention for the people who have ears like me which the small ones kept falling out... lying on a bench doing weights can be tricky though, but i seem to have mastered it. if your buying them for intentions of hard fast running, these are for you. brilliant ! also great sound from them which is the most important thing

5 stars

I have owned the previous model to destruction. It lasted about 14 months of sweating before starting to degrade at the connection and signs of rust appeared on the metal. I am hard pressed to find any difference with this model except for the colour. The first thing I noticed when putting them on is a slightly uncomfortable pressure on my ears. This eases a little over time through use and is also less noticeable when you are moving as the pressure point moves a little. I would not buy these with the intention of sitting around listening to music. My previous model review applies here too.

They perform exactly as I need them to when running:
I never have to adjust them.
They don't give me any discomfort.
I have no issues with the sound quality.

When not running I tend not to use them:
The bar gets in the way when laying back on a bench or any headrest.
When inactive they are not as comfortable as non sport models of headphone.
Higher audio quality headphones exist for sitting back and listening to music.

These do exactly what I wanted them to do - stay on my ears while I run! I've struggled to find headphones that don't constantly fall out but these stay on all the time and the sound quality is good.

If you wear a jacket during the cold weather it can keep bumping them a bit because of the strap round the back but that is a very minor issue.

Very happy with these
