Sennheiser OCX 686G Sport Earbuds Review

 

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...

Let Down

 

Got these as an "upgrade" to the previous model (OCX 685I) and was very disappointed. The mic on my 685 went out and that seemed to be a common complaint among 685 owners, but I expected that at $50 more, these would have worked out that issue. While...
