Sennheiser has delivered yet another solid pair of workout headphones with the OCX 686G Sports. With a sweat- and water-resistant design and cords that don't tangle, these buds are convenient to throw in your gym bag and use during even the most...

Boisterous sound ; Water-resistant design ; Tangle-free cords

Awkward over-ear design

Sennheiser OCX 686 review: Wired for sports

 

These Sennheisers get the important things right: this is a comfortable design (so long as you get on with over the ear hangers) and the sound quality

Great sound quality for the price point ; Good cable ; Comfortable to wear ; Rain and sweat resistance

Right-side weighting bias as cable goes around neck ; 3.5mm only so no Bluetooth wireless

It doesn't fall out of the ear easily.

Sennheiser OCX 686G

 

Not sure how they're supposed to actually fit in an ear. There are random yellow hook bits on the top that don't seem to serve any purpose at all. Next time I shall return to my prefered headband style.
