"Great earphones - not just for workouts"5.0 starson by rt413
Pros: Work great if you want good quality and good looking earphones with great sound. I use them not just for the gym/jogging but also generally walking around/on the bus and as a skype headset for my ipod touch and macbook pro. The mic supports the newer blac
Cons: According to the reviews below if you're one of those people who sweat like heck and leave a treadmill covered in your scent after a work out you may damage these. If you are one of those people i'd suggest water-proof earphones. If not these are absolute
Summary: Of the alternatives I tried before buying these: Sennheiser high-end pricey sports earphones have average sound, not THAT much better than a standard set of ipod earphones. Adidas&Sennheirser sports earphones have awful sound, worse than the regular sennheisers. Bose sports/portable models don't fit everyone that well and bang & olufsen earphones have no bass whatsoever.My pros & cons were cut off: Pros concluded that the bass & sound are great, particularly for hip hop/rap and the mic supports newer blackberries. The cons were that apart from incompatibility with overly sweaty people, they do not have much to offer to fans of rock & pre-2005 kinda pop as their main selling point is the amazing bass.
