Sennheiser PMX 686G Sports Earphones – Galaxy : The best for training

Work well, they seem to be fine when i’m moving however i’ve noticed they get muffled if there’s any pressure applied to the rear of them, like if you were sitting down and your head was resting against the chair. Music is clear and decent bass. Does a good job of balancing music and environmental noise. Obviously the cord isn’t as handy as have no cord but there’s no battery to worry about so that’s why i went with these.

Great design if you like to run with maximum stability and don’t want to hear your foot steps like ‘thuds’ like you do with in-ear headphones. The flat shaped cable is brilliantly designed for not tangling (i really hate constantly untangling my iphone earbud cables)the sound is great and even accross the eq range (but obviously not supreme quality – if you notice any lack of audio quality, you’re not exercising enough).

I’ve tried dozens of headband-style sports headphones over the years – these have by far the best sounding bass of them all.

Pros: sounds very good as usual for those sennheiser models. Cons:1) to my great disappointment, this model has abandoned the detachable mini-jack the previous models featured. How are you supposed to plug this to an mp3 player in an armband without the cable dangling all over the place?. Gonna have to get “creative” when working out / running. 2) a little on the expensive side3) likely to not last over a couple of years as usual, after which the cable will start breaking and you end up hearing sound from one canal only. I strongly suspect that, without the detachable cable, this will actually happen sooner – will update my review accordingly.

The best earphones for the gym.

It put a lot of pressure on the ears.

Brill sound & cheap , what more do you want.

Worked well for 8 months but volume control has now stopped working.

Works well and fits very comfortably on and slightly into the ear. Just what i expected from this product.

I’ve bought several pairs in these series. They last a year or two, but then they take a lot of punishment (thrown in kit bags), rain sweat etc, so i don’t begrudge getting new ones. They sit in the ear well without blocking out external sounds completely, which makes running safer. The sound is excellent, and the band means they stay in place. My only criticism is that they get more expensive every year.

I’ve used these and various others. This is the only one that truly stays in your ears when running. The sound quality is good too. I have been using this and previous models for the past 10 years or so. They last about 1-2 years of training regularly because of sweat damage. One speaker usually gives up and i then have to buy another. But it doesn’t bother me as i’ve attempted using other brands and they will never amount to this.

Good sound, seem durable, comfortable (although get a little painful on a long workout). I wanted bluetooth connectivity to avoid cables, but the cable really isnt an issue on this one.

I had these as a christmas present and in the 4 weeks that i’ve had them i have been very impressed. The sound quality is as good as my ears can take, any better and i’m not sure i’d notice. The fit is very comfortable and the headphones are very lightweight, making them comfortable to wear for prolonged periods. And they do all that is want and much more. I originally bought these just for music and yet it seemed a bonus that they could replace my hands free for my samsung. More of a bonus that they also became a hands free for my blackberry. I’m not sure i’d go back to other headphones now – these do everything i want to a high standard and more. In terms of the features, i’ve had no issues with rust, find the cable length ideal when on a bike and yet the design means you can use when only a short cable is needed. The remote functions work with my samsung perfectly (not sure you could blame sennheiser for them not working with a device they aren’t intended for) but they also work with other devices, which is a bonus. I bought these when they were half price (.

Awesome headphones, great sound, shuffles on the iphone as expected. Not tried the phone compatibility yet. Have to get used to the firm grip compare to other (cheaper) sennheiser variants.

Good sound quality but no buds supplied – quite painful in the ears without some form of cushioning. I used this when runnin in he gym- i get through about 4 earphones a year. This model lasted three months before one side failed- which in my book is not bad.
