High-Fidelity Headphones Will Keep You Runnin'


Looking for a pair of headphones that won't fall part among the blood, sweat and tears from your run? You're looking for the PMX 680s.

Exceptional sound quality. Marvelous bass. Stays put securely. Water resistant and dog-proof

Ambient noise leaks in. Large earbuds might be uncomfortable for some users

Sennheiser CX 680 Sports


Gym-friendly earphones have typically been referred to as such because they either stay firmly in place or endure physical abuse without immediately dying. And in the past, Sennheiser has made respectable earbuds for exercise, but a new partnership...

Sennheiser's gym-friendly CX 680 Sports earphones offer high-quality audio performance and secure fit in a rugged, waterproof design making them our latest Editors' Choice.

Sennheiser CX 680i Headphones


Ever since my first iPad, I've been using Apple's traditional white earbuds. When I got the opportunity to take a look at Sennheiser's CX 680i Adidas Sport In-Ear Stereo Headphones, I suddenly realized what I've been missing all these years. Priced at...

Sennheiser CX 680i


Decent value, but not for audiophiles, and not necessarily the best for gym goers either

Very low distortion; Contains a remote and mic

Not the best isolation; Not the best frequency response

The CX 680is aren’t a bad set of headphones for $100. They have a remote & mic, decent quality, and a good fit. You won’t find impeccable audio quality on these headphones, but at their price point, you really can’t expect that. We’d recommend these...

Waterproof workout earphones


Sennheiser is one of the few companies to earn reviewer praise for their sports headphones, and the CX 680 Sports model is a current favorite among workout-friendly earphones. Made in association with Adidas, the CX 680s are sweat- and waterproof and...

Good sound quality, very secure fit, sweat- and waterproof, in-line volume control

Styling may not be appealing, a bit expensive

Sennheiser PMX-680 Adidas Sport Headphones


Sennheiser is a name that needs no introduction in the hi-fi headphones community. If you have ever done research on a new set of headphones, the Sennheiser name has undoubtedly come up in your exploration. They have been making headphones,...

Comfortable fit and firmly stay in your ears while exercising, overall pleasant sound quality, sturdy design materials

Few bass/mid/high frequency issues keep it from excelling with any particular type of music

While I cannot comment on whether this latest generation Sennheiser model offers improved sound quality over the earlier PMX models, I can say that this model offers an overall pleasing sound signature. It keeps up with fast-paced music and doesn’t...

Perfect for all occasions


My second pair. Once in a very long time I would get some bass buzzing (my previous pair, this one seems OK so far). Otherwise this beats out just about every pair of phones I\'ve ever owned. Superb bass, very clear sound. The volume switch is a bit...

Great Headphones for portable players


These are perfect for me, I wear glasses and the behind the neck phones I had would press on my glasses and over time became annoying to wear. This model is totally comfortable after 1-2 hours.
