Sennheiser OCX 686G Sports Earphones – Galaxy : Great headpones but expensive replacement parts.

Sound quality good, comfortable fit. However, they fall out of my ears when i change facial expression. As a result when i grimace in exercise related pain, they fall out of my ears which is very inconvenient.

This was initially a gift for me from my husband who initially “borrowed” it every now & again. These borrowing became more frequent & eventually he just took them. Only criticism would be that it would be nice to be able to select / skip songs from the controller on the wire rather than just be able to adjust the volume.

5mm jack is straight, not right-angled. This resulted in my first pair failing after a year. I would have rather had the right angled jack. Sound quality is decent for the price. Small eartips fit me well, they are quite secure in my ears when running/lifting weights/chin-ups. Edit:2nd pair is now failing at the jack plug after 7 months of use. Very disappointed in sennheiser’s decision to use a straight plug instead of a 90° plug.

This earphones does not have mega bass or similar like this at all, but it fit well in my ears and do its job. Worth the money and it’s better that any other earphones here in same price. If you are looking for earphones with good bass, you need to spend much more money. I like this one and it was a good choice. What i found the earphones has a bit sponge put into the each ear channel which i think decrease the sound quality. If you remove that sponge you will increase the earphones sound quality but also increase voice power so be carefull also you will do it on you responsibility. I removed it any eaphones sounds much better for me than before.

Not quite as secure as i would have liked, they still slip out of the ears when very sweaty or running long distances. May have to try the other sized ear buds.

This is the second time i’ve purchased these earphones, the left hand one lost about 10% volume level after just under two years & then the right hand stopped working completely once i’d had them just over three years, hence buying this set. The sound quality & isolation is very good, there is no active noise cancelling but the isolation you get from them even in a noisy gym right by the speakers is great, very impressed – hence buying them again.

These are awesome headphones. I’ve used them for a few years and bought my wife a pair without hesitation. Great sound, no wind noise, really comfortable on long runs. The remote can tug a little at one ear even with the clip attached, but i think you have to compromise somewhere with wires. 2 year guarantee is brilliant.

Doesn’t fall off my ears even when i’m sweating. The sound is greats and if well inserted, outside noises are almost nullified (i jog in a gym with lound environment music and other people exercising as well, but all i hear the music from the phone). The only weird thing about it is the control in the cable close to the phone itself (the right side). Perhaps because i pass the cable inside my shirt and on my backs all the way to the back pockets of my running pants. The cable to the right side phone is shorter and feels weird, but nothing one can’t get used to.

Pros:-the sound is really nice on these headphones and they allow the surrounding sounds to be heard. I used it while walking and cycling and had no issues while using them- they are sweat proofcons- the part that goes into the ear is a very thin cheap plastic cover they got torn apart after trying to replace itin general i would recommend the earphones for the price, the quality of the sound is a lot better than expected for 25 pounds.

I’ve been using sennheiser sports earphones for half decade now, and have always been a big fan. These headphones are great, although i did prefer the previous adidas version, but the differences are minimal. I was shocked however to discover that the replacement earbud tips cost roughly 1/3 the price of the headphones themselves. I find this to be utterly unacceptable.

Susceptible to becoming loose on occasion, but comfortable and good sound quality.

Good sound quality and stay securely in place.

Great sound quality durable, i wore them every day for a year sports and commute to work.

Bought as a present, recipient gave it five stars.

I bought these as a replacement for my old sennheisers, however very disappointed with the quality and the fit – the headphones, no matter what i do, keeps falling out or become so lose that i am constantly pushing them back in when i run. Such a shame as the previous headphones were superb.
