So let me say what I was looking for when I bought these. I wanted a pair of headphones that would stay in my ear as I ran. That was pretty much it. I did want them to be separate so I could use one earpiece at a time and durable for possible sweat and water while running. With that said these met my requirements as I described. I do my running outside and with little adjustments when they are in, they stay put for the duration of my run. Generally speaking I run about 3-4 miles at a time with them on. I have no complaints over the sound performance either. Might be a little pricey but I tried similar designs such as the ones from Sony and those wouldnt stay in my ear for a quarter mile and they were half the price.
Update 6/15/2011 - I found that they stay put better in my ear if I remove the rubber housing that is suppose to go up and behind the ear. Ever since I removed that they dont even move.
If you love to jog outside, or sprint on a track, hit and kick the boxing bag, play basketball, do elipticals allout I promise you these are not perfect, but you have to try these out and they will be your new favorites. I have bought over 5 earbuds/over the ear headphones ranging from $100-$10 Klipsch S4i, Monster Beats Power Sport, Sennheiser CX 680i Sports and these are my favorite. The $10 were always my favorite, but too many cons, When I worked out either they would slowly fall out, get sweat in them and stop working, pop right off when boxing (hitting the bag hard and jumping around and kicking)and the sound would be good to horrible.
Pros 1. Almost like the bottom of a sneaker like soft yet super grip around your ear stops any movement.
2. Sound is Decent! My ipod was always up to max with all other earbuds do to falling out or poor sound quality, No My ipod is only at about 70% -90% max volume and I love music loud. Yet to have distortion...
I have had these for about 2 months now and after the first couple of days of playing around with the fitting and getting the right fit they have not fallen out of my ears one time. I'm in the military and am currently working out 6 days a week w/ various cardio every day. I am bald and even though we can wear headphones in the gym we can't wear headbands in uniform so sweat in the ears happens in no time. 99% of the world's population should be able to wear these headphones. Not only can you bend them around your ear lobe; the piece that goes inside you ear can be removed, turned, adjusted as needed. I'm no audiophile but music comes through great with a nice full sound; bass, treble, etc..Definitely will look to this brand first for my future active audio needs.
