Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"Cons: The sound is kind of muddy and the cord is just short enough to be annoying when I make certain moves either at the gym or while working."

_
"Because of cord length and limited functionality, I wouldn't recommend this headphones."

_
"The only downsides I have found is the thumping you hear if the cord bounces against your body (which is cured by using the included clip) and the fact that they basically block out all external sounds (which can be dangerous depending on where you are running)."
_
"If they had made the Kevlar coated cord about 6 longer it would have been perfect."
_
"Good.... but I wish the cord were shorter....it's definitely a bit of a pain."
_
"I would suggest them great fit but cord is too short to plays music device in your pocket if your over 6 foot."
_
