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 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...

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 CX 680i review

 

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 are easy to fit, super-comfy and secure. They're...

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.

Sennheiser Adidas CX 680 Sports, focused on music

 

We have reviewed many headphones before, such as these from Denon, so you can imagine our delight when were sent these Sennheiser Adidas CX 680 Sports headphones. The meeting of Sennheiser and Adidas means that these headphones will not only be focused...

Sennheiser CX 680i Sports

 

Weighing in at just 14g these Sennheiser CX 680i Sports are lightweight and compact. The 1.2 metre cable is super thin but still manages to come with inline controls and microphone built-in, so it's perfect for use with your iPhone as well as your...

Built for action and pounding street action at that, the Sennheiser CX 680i Sports deliver a big sound at volume that suits the gym or the long distance runner. However, the clincher has to be the earfins, which hold the headphones perfectly in place....

Sennheiser Adidas Sports CX 680i

 

I'm still in limbo as to weather I should buy a pair of the CX 685's and give them a try. They're certainly cheaper.

Please read this. The headphones fit fairly well in my ear canal and if you are like me and the biggest concern you have is keeping your ear buds in while running then they will most likely do the trick for you(I run about 4-10 miles a day at a 6:30...

The headphones did not work. I plugged them into several audio devices and received a very muffled sound. I tried them out for a couple of days to see if they would work and they didn't. I have heard the sound quality from these headphones while using...

Sennheiser CX680

 

Since the volume control on the extension cable is bulky and the extension cable is basically required for the cord to be long enough for my use, I've started hooking the cord over my ears, and this seems to eliminate any downward tug from a bouncing...

Pros: The sound from these headphones is rather good for the price. They are not uncomfortable once you find the right earfin/earbud combination for your ears. With how good a fit they are, any external sound is incredibly dampened, if not eliminated....

The cable situation is a bit frustrating. The earbuds come with a cable measuring a little over two feet, and then an extension cable is included, also a little over two feet. The extension cable comes with a rather bulky volume control box for being a...
