Sennheiser CX 686G Sport In-Ear Headphones Review

 

The Sennheiser CX 686G Sport earbuds have everything a good pair of exercise buds need: good audio quality with thumping bass, a sporty design with a steady in-ear fit and a convenient inline remote.

Sporty design ; Comfortable, secure ear inserts ; Good audio quality

Cords tangle easily ; inline remote doesn't work on iOS devices

The $69 Sennheiser CX 686G Sports earbuds are the best workout headphones for the money, with great sound quality, a friendly design and a convenient inline remote.

Very Excellent ... but.

 

The description of these earbuds should include the dimensions of the product so that you could figure if it will be uncomfortable in your ear. Extra functionality with the control buttons would be nice. More consistent sound quality over various...

Excellent sound quality ; Lows are well represented ; Highs aren't too loud ; Overall crispness of the sound is very good given price and sustained even at higher volumes ; For this model the noise cancellation is very good. Even at medium to low...

Though the ear fin is a nice way to keep the earbuds in your ear this model has them constructed behind the audio driver. This causes pressure in your ear from the earbud being pressed into your ear to get this ear fin in place causing pain. Not sure...

Comfortable ear buds for the exerciser

 

Fits securely in the ear and remains comfortable during workouts. Does not cause itching, and sound quality is pretty good also.

No go

 

I bought these thinking they would be better than my sennheiser cx685 and, sadly, I was wrong. These have good bass but nowhere near the same performance in the mids and highs. They stay in place while you run but the mids and highs are just a let...

Decent sports headphones

 

First use went ok, decent quality with good anti tangle cable. In ear fitting seems it too 3nr ear buds and there is an adjustment on the in ear phones to secure them even more.

Consumer review (argos.co.uk)

Lightweight but light on sound

 

I have been using a pair of Pioneer in-ear sport headphones and being a good brand, expected these to sound the same. Was a little disappointed with the bass but that may just be the fit to my ear. Did seem to stay secure when running and the volume...
