Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"All they do is remind you you're wearing headphones when you turn your head and get an unpleasant poke in the ear when the cable refuses to move."
_
"Also, I had some Sennheiser CX300's years ago that I loved to death right up until they stopped working when the connection failed where the cable met the bud."
_
"Cord tangle - these are the single worst pair of headphones for cord tangle I have ever experienced, you can put them in your pocket and they are a rats nest immediately."
_
"Sounds is fine but if the music is not loud enough you can hear the cord clanging while running, and that can be really annoying (e. g. I never hear that on the iPhone headset)."
_
"My problem is that after one month of use, the cable that connects to the sound buttons has frayed so badly that the copper wire is coming out."
_
"No matter how i store these things, the little electronics gnomes sneak into the provided bag (which is nice btw) and mangle these cables so i have a 10 minute puzzle to accomplish before i can use them."
_
"They never fall off, the sound is very good, and the cord is solid."
_
"It is nice to have the volume and playback control on the cord."
_
"High level benefits:light weightcable doesn't bounce around too much when runningcontrol on cable is easy to use without looking"
_
"Great material and the cables are flexible."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Even taking the low price into consideration, the sound quality and comfort were mediocre at best, but more than that, one side became inoperable after about one month of use."
_
"Paid $22 and they sound pretty crappy and are't comfortable."
_
"Good sound and very comfortable."
_
"They sound great, they're the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn."
_
"Overall I'm happy with these, I think it was a good purchase because they're good quality headphones, they sound good, comfortable, and definitely get the job done without having to spend $100 on workout headphones."
_
"They are very lightweight and comfortable, and the overall sound quality is pretty good."
_
"They fit my ears perfectly and are very comfortable."

Control

Control:
"In EVERY case so far, the controls have been the weak link."
_
"The two main failures of the product are 1) The inline controls stopped working, and started causing audio to pause and skip at unexpected times the first time they were exposed to a good sweat; and 2) The sound quality is not very good."
_
"I'm very disappointed in the quality control of these headphones and will never buy from Seenheiser again."
_
"I did expect the control to be an issue but didn't expect the Mic to be incompatible."
_
"There's just one disappointment ... the remote control does not allow you to skip tracks on a playlist (as the iPhone earbuds do)."
_
"None the less, they seem to do a better job in wet conditions than other earphones and the controls embedded into the wire make racing a more pleasant experience."
_
"I like the built in volume control and it works well."
_
"Good fit, and good remote controls."
_
"One would think that sports headphones would be sweat-resistant, and that the control buttons wouldn't fail after only five weeks of use during running and or cycling."
_
"It is nice to have the volume and playback control on the cord."

_
"This is made worse when the included ear tips do not fit well."
_
"They fit my ears perfectly and are very comfortable."
_

Sound

Sound:

_
"Here's a breakdown of the strong and weak points of its sound."
_

Sport

Sport:
"I use these for many functions- phone calls (the microphone is very solid and nobody ever complains about background noise), running and sports, air travel, and video shooting and editing."

iPhone

iPhone:
"Great fit, great sound, nice color, maybe the control is a little big (compared to the original IPhone ones but no problema with this),,,, I am happy with it"
_
"It seems pretty common for headphones to cut out on me (usually one ear) because I sweat so much, but these are great so far.....Also, one downside to having a Galaxy S with these is that the volume buttons only work with an iphone."
_
"My original iphone set went dead also, the wires near the connection at the plug may have cracked."
_
"I recently bought these headphones not because of the Sennheiser name and audio quality that typically comes with it - I simply wanted a pair of earbuds that had both around-ear earhook design so they wouldn't fall out of my ear, PLUS a volume control on the same unit, since I use them often times to work in the yard when my hands are dirty and I'd rather not touch my iPhone screen."
_
"Sounds is fine but if the music is not loud enough you can hear the cord clanging while running, and that can be really annoying (e. g. I never hear that on the iPhone headset)."
_
"my only criticism is that the volume rocker is made for iphone stuff."
_
"Can anyone recommend a head set for the iphone that has ear loops, and a reinforced 90 degree connection at the plug?"
_
"In testing the controls of the in-ear headphones with my iphone 5 they worked perfectly."
_
"I would recommend these to anyone who works out runs with an iPhone."
_
"They are super comfortable and the headset works great with my iPhone 4S."
