    Everyone's anatomy is a little different, but I've yet to find earbuds that fit comfortably in my ears. I've tried a number of different types of headphones over the years, but these have become my favorites.
    Pros:
    - Comfort. I can wear these for hours, which is not the case with other headphones.
    - High sound quality. Well balanced - the bass is present but not obtrusive. Obviously these are not going sound as good as a full sized over the ear head phone, but I think they sound remarkably good for a lightweight set of headphones.
    - The smartphone controls are a nice bonus. I mostly use it for controlling volume and skipping tracks while listening to music on my iPhone, but I've also used it for a few phone calls.

    Cons:
    - After a few months of use, the foam rubber cushions stretch out and no longer stay on the headphones and eventually fall off and disappear. The headphones are far less comfortable w/o the cushions, so I purchased a six pair replacement set from Sennheiser.
    - Not great for reclining during air flights. I found the neckband pushed against the pillow/headrest when I attempted to recline and sleep in my seat while flying.

    No single product works for everyone - but for me, these are the best lightweight headphone option I've found to date. If you have trouble with earbuds, give these a try.

    This unit had reasonably good sound quality, so to that degree it was well worth the price (on sale). The problem for some of us who have neckband headsets is that the bands rub against shirts and especially winter coats with high necks. The sound runs into the ears, which is annoying.

    Another issue I had was that there's no way to adjust the fit of the buds in the ears, so this could be a problem for some. There are cloth sleeves that fit over the buds that give some comfort, but they come off easily and aren't that easy to put on the buds.

    The inline remote works very well - I use it with an iPhone5 and it worked fine, allowing me to use "Siri," adjust volume, turn off all sound, etc.

          This is a great pair of headphones for working out. Sound quality is excellent, and the volume/pause control on the wire is a great convenience. Feels like they will last quite a while. The nice case that comes with the headphones is a plus.

          Comments about Sennheiser PMX 685i Sports Neckband Headset with Inline Remote/Mic:

          It seems to be well made product, but with the first use, the soft covering for the ear bud tore and I could not use it without causing discomfort in the ear canal. That shows poor quality
          In addition, you also have to remember that you cannot use it if you have traveling in an airplane - the neckband will prevent you from leaning back on the chair - I did not realize this and so could not use it on my recent journey.
          I have not used it for exercise yet - I might seriously consider returning it if it is not as described

              I really wasn't expecting a whole lot, even from such a reputable company, for such a small price. I had ordered a second set for a friend, and found myself hoping that he didn't want them so I could have a backup set. Their extremely light, sound great, and stay in place.

                    This fits the bill as a lite and moisture-durable headset for cardio intensive workouts at the gym which result in a lot of sweating. If you're tired of the in-ear headphones that keep falling out of your ear when exercising, this is your solution.

                    Sound quality is outstanding and what you expect from Sennheiser...I have several of their other products. Comes with a storage pouch.

                    Extremely happy with the purchase and the B&H Deal Zone offer.

Because I wear a hat 365 wrapping around the back if my head is like not even wearing it and presents no discomfort when the hat goes on. Recommend these headphones

                          If you're like me, you need headphones that you can workout in (i.e. lift weights, run, stretch).. These get the job done. They are light weight so they never feel extra in you will. They fit snug in your ear so you never feel they will fall out no matter how intense your movement, and they sound pretty good.. above average I would say. And obviously you don't have to worry about getting them damaged from sweat.

                          The only minor drawback for me is they don't fit in well when you have to rest your head on something or lie on your back.

                          All in All They work excellent for almost any physical activity you do and desire to listen to audio simultaneously.

                          I bought one for myself and one for my daughter in NYC. I tried mine out and was impressed my daughter runs with hers several times a week all oner NYC and loves hers. If you are an audiophile you likely will find something you dont like . But for most folks these are really good durable at a great price point.

                                The product is great for running. But not for workouts. The band sits behind your head and is not conducive to putting your head on a bench.

                                Also, this would have been better as a Bluetooth device.

                                Alos, would have been better as a an "around the ear" device as a pose to a neckband.
