Design

Design:
"Only negatives, not comfortable when running outside with sunglasses on because of the over-ear design."
_
"I expect compromises in sound quality when it comes to headphones designed for workouts."
_
"I was really excited to try this out, thinking comfort would be top priority from the world's greatest runner, with the AeroFlex design, which didn't really help with the comfort, and claims responding to different temperature moisture cushion developed by NASA; however, it just feels like regular mesh material to me."
_
"Pros:- Design looks nice, sleek, and futuristic."

Fit

Fit:
"Ive used the headphones for about 4 weeks and they are holding up well to perspiration (unlike some expensive ear buds I've purchased).I guess my only significant complaint with the Gibson Trainer is the fit."
_
"They do have a snug fit for sports, and stay on while running, though for me the tight fit was a bit too tight and felt a bit uncomfortable."
_
"They do have a mechanism that adjusts behind your head for a true fit but I have a lot of hair and they just don't grip as well."
_
"I'm not quite as fast as Usain Bolt (I'm pretty sure he's broken the eight-minute-mile mark), but for my needs, the fit is snug enough that they will never fall off."
_
"The headphones fit better than good."
_
"They fit great."
_
"The headphones are nice, but it didn't fit my head well."
_
"It fits comfortably."
_
"Until the Gibsons...The Gibsons are perfectly weighted, waterproof, and fit nice and comfortable after long runs."

_
"I don't want to stop running cause the music is so fantastic."

_
"The trainers are geared towards people who appreciate listening to their music during running, exercising etc...."
