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...

Excellent audio performance with strong bass response. Comfortable fit. Stays in place even during intense workouts. Waterproof, sweat-proof. In-line volume control

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...

Sennheiser CX 680i Review

 

Light, comfy and great sounding – a worthy winner of our favourite training buds

Nothing says sport like yellow and the Sennheiser CX 680is are no exception to this rule. The EarFin design seems almost an afterthought but it does keep them in place and the sweat-resistant CX 680is

Adidas Sennheiser PMX 680i review

 

But we were wrong. We took the headphones for a good run, and achieved the ideal situation: we could forget about them completely, and just concentrate on the pleasure of the music, and the agony of the exercise.

The PMX 680i Sports headphones are light and comfortable to wear, with a secure fit that we never doubted throughout a lengthy run. But the real surprise was the audio quality: uniformly good, but particularly proficient in the bass department. The...

Sennheiser CX 680 Sports review

 

Keeping in-ear headphones firmly in place can often be a bit of a problem, especially when you're working up a sweat, so the earpieces on the Sennheiser CX 680 Sports can be fitted with a pair of flexible rubber ‘earfins' that fold inside the curve of...

With the Sennheiser CX 680 Sports sound is clear and detailed, with a well-balanced bass that is strong enough to get you motivated without overwhelming the mid- and higher frequencies. They're a good buy at this price.

Two German superbrands have attempted to produce the ultimate sports-centric headphones. But are the PMX 680s Olympic sprinters or fat clubbers jogging on the spot?

Not a replacement for your audiophile in-ears, but a fine perfect sporty alternative. If you run, get a pair of these
