tech specs need updating

Gym Workouts - perfect

 

"I love these these headphones, they don't hurt my ears, (other headphone ear buds are too large). These headphones keep sweat from creeping into your ears during a tough workout. I am buying two more pairs."

Great Size / Sound Great / Don't hurt ears

Convenient but Breakable

 

The folding feature of these headphones makes them extremely convenient. However, one wrong move and the plastic snaps in two. They must be handled carefully to last.
