"Rather disappointing"2.5 starson by aleuzinger
Pros: Good for podcasts.
Seem pretty sturdy.
Stay on head well.
Cons: No bass to speak of. Poor for music.
Hard to fit with sunglasses.
Summary: I bought these to replace a pair of V-Moda in-ear headphones. I primarily use headphones to listen to podcasts and music while running, and decided to go with these instead of an in-ear design so I could hear my surroundings a bit better. The reviews I read before buying the Sennheiser's indicated the bass response wasn't that great, and after my V-Moda's I'd say this is a gross understatement. The sound quality is quite tinny. I wasn't expecting the bass to match my V-Moda's, but I was expecting better than I got. For listening to podcasts this isn't a big deal, but whenever I listen to music I'm disappointed. Also, it's a pain to get these to fit well when I'm also wearing sunglasses: again the in-ear design is better. But, they do stay in place better than the in-ear models, which is a plus. Overall, I wish I'd bought another pair of in-ear models (V-Moda or whatever).
