Sennheiser MX 85 Sport Review


Sennheiser is a name that is synonymous with audio gear.  These guys make everything from high grade headphones, to studio quality microphones.  So it should come as no surprise that they want to extend their reach into the athletic arena.  They have...

The design is the best I have used to date. They sit securely in your ears, without being a direct in ear headphone.  The extension really provides a lot of stability during use, and unlike the Yurbuds, you really forget you are wearing them.  That...

great value


These are the only headphones I've found that stay in my ears while running and have great sound. They were much cheaper on this site.

Super headphones


I have had to purchase several sets of headphones for gym use. This set not only is standing up to the test, but the headphones actually stay in place and feel comfortable. I would recommend this product to any gym user.

Great for sports use.


These headphones work great when you are doing anything sports related. Most of the time I use them while running and they stay on the head securely and the sound is just right.

Sound great...buds hurt smaller ears


These Sennheisers sound great! The only problem I have with them is that the earbud part of the headphones are rather large (bigger than stock iPod ones) and don't fit in my ears. They hurt after just a few minutes. The sound really is great, though.

Sound good, stay on

okay headphones for the gym
