Sennheiser/Adidas MX 680i Sports Earbuds for iPhone & iPod Review


I am currently in my forth decade of running…..tens of thousands of miles. But I have never run a marathon and prefer to run by myself versus running with the masses in organized races. Well, as the story goes….my wife is turning 40 next year and I...

Well made ; Good sound quality ; Water/sweat resistance ; Hardened & durable ; Secure fit in the outer ear ; Good bang for the buck ; Two year warranty


I made the mistake of listening with the MX 680′s for the first time by watching a streaming CNET video. My initial thought was ‘ehhh, no better than my iPhone earbuds….’ But then I used them to listen to some quality sounds and the experience was MUCH...

Sweet Headphones


Great sounding ear buds, the volume control comes in handy. This was my first time purchasing this particular brand earbuds but I am glad that I did. I wasnt sure if spending the money on these would be worth it in the long run but I LOVE THESE THINGS...

Only Con would be the earbud rubber ends, one is HUGe the rest are so so in size. I ended up going down to the smallest one for the best fit I'd like to see more pieces in the box for those of us with different size ear canals

Very good product and quick shipping


I use it when I\'m running and the ear grips are perfect for keeping the earbud in place despite all the movement.

Stays in ear


Normal earbuds have a heck of a time staying in my ear when running, but these do really well. A couple of issues: 1) The heaphones themselves have a very short cable. This plugs into an extension with a volume switch that can clip onto your clothing....

Stays in ears when running

Not long enough ; Not very waterproof

I think I found THE workout headphones!


I use these to workout after my previous, supposedly "sweat proof", pair fizzled out. So far I\'ve used the Sennheisers about 4 times and am pleased. Much better sound quality than any other workout headphones I\'ve ever had, and they stay put well...
