Sennheiser PMX 80 Sports Earphones


Ergonomic fit and great sound quality

The ergonomic design of these earphones help to stay comfy as you go for your daily jog or workout schedule. The behind-the-ear design promotes better awareness of your surroundings. Works great for podcasts and music

The neon-orange color might prove to be a put-off for some users. The bass on these earphones is not particularly great. The earphones are prone to breaking after some time of continuous use

Sennhieser PMX 80 Buds


Snow on the ground here right now. I wonder if I'll still think they are waterproof after a long jog in a rainstorm

Sound quality is good. Not perfect but good ; They do seem to be sweat / water proof

Not adjustable for ear size, and not adjustable on the neck band. The first causes them to be uncomfortable in my ears after 15 minutes. Yes I must have small ears ; The second causes the neck band to flop up and down as you jog or exercise

would be nice if the cord was replaceble. Air gitar tends to cause cords to fatigue early

Great Headphones for Running ”


I bought the Sennheiser PMX 80 shortly after I had started running regularly.  I was looking for a pair of headphones that would hold up to my extreme sweating 5 times a week.  Prior to finding these, I had ruined 4 pair of headphones that had claimed...

Sennheiser - PMX 80 - Poor Quality ”


I went through two pairs of these headphones and they both had the same problem.  I run long distances and the headphones worked great when I first starting using them, but after 2 or 3 months, the headphones started cutting out occasionally.  This...

Overall I'm happy with the product ”


I've been searching for a good set of jogging/workout headphones for my iPhone for some time. This was my 5th pair in 2 years. Every set of headphones before this had a major flaw. Either they fell out while running, had too much of a "tinny" sound and...

Sennheiser PMX 80 Sport II headphones


The Sennheiser PMX 80 Sport II headphones are built for heavy sports use. They won't survive a scuba diving trip, but will brush off any sweat drenched on them, while staying stuck to your head without bother thanks to a flexible but robust neckband....

These are cans for treadmill plodders and long distance joggers only. If we're honest, the real advantage is the isolation: put a track on and you can zone out completely. Sound quality can't quite match Sennheiser's normal high standards, but hey, for...
