    Sennheiser OCX686i reviews

    OCX 686i Sports Earphones (with Microphone Remote Control, iOS) is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As advertised, but some caveats. I used a W4R as my main set of headphones, but then started using it as my jogging headphones. The sweat broke it and I needed a pair of headphones made specifically for exercising. This was perfect. The bass is powerful and it's clearer than most headphones at this price range. It's not as easy to tangle and can be fashionable while exercising if you're into that sort of thing. Somethings that I don't care for are: The different lengths of wire coming from the right and left phones. The right is significantly shorter than the left. Might be good if you want the wires behind your back. Thankfully, the clip keeps microphonics away, but I'd rather both sides be the same. The plug is vertical. I prefer a 90 plug. It doesn't bend around as much and is low-profile. Even though this goes around your ear, it doesn't keep a great seal. During jobbing, you may have to push it back in your ear again, no matter which tips you use. The clips keep it on your ears, thankfully. The volume can be a little louder. In other headphones, this usually isn't a problem. But while the bass can be powerful, the volume is a little weak.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love them. Got this as my daily drivers for my commute. Easy to store in my pick, barely tangles, decent sound. Wish the lows were better preforming. Did some EQ profile changes on my phone which greatly helped with the sound. I would recommend other users to do the same. Helps get the vocals and bass out more. Fits snuggly, once I figured out which ear size to use, they never fell out.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sounding earbuds Flawless control with iPhone 6 Plus. Takes a bit to get used to and fit to personal needs. Great for walking but still getting used to for running as they dislodge from the ear canal and require repositioning. Use of the wire clip does reduce slippage of the ear buds. Good sound for the value. Would purchase again.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from nope Used when exercising. The left side works fine, the right will not work if it gets any sweat in the earpiece. If you don't sweat, they would probably be fine.
