5 out of 5 eggsBest sport headphones and design

Pros: The vertical headband design is probably the best headphone design. It lets air in and it lets moisture out. They fit almost all ears very comfortably and they stay comfortable. They don't fall out like ear buds or start to hurt like the special sport earbuds. They don't move like behind the ear neckband headphones while running and you can use them better at the gym for that reason. You can't hear cord noise like earbuds when running. The are extremely light weight, have a similar design to the sonxtronic xdr headphones, and are also moisture resistant. The plastic type is not too soft and not too hard.

Cons: The main down side is the current price since they have been discontinued, and also that one ear eventually goes out because the wire connections eventually get loose. The cords pull on the connection to the speaker or entrance to the headphones which eliminates the cord noise you hear with sport ear buds but, the downside is they eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Cord length while perfect for running is sometimes a bit short on a gym running machine.

Other Thoughts: Over all one of the best liked and most comfortable headphones ever made judging from hundreds of positive reviews on various websites.

1 out of 5 eggsThey are not indestructible!

Pros: They did look tough. Arrived new in package.

Cons: They only look tough. After almost three months of use. The covering over the wire near the jack itself has worn off. I admit I am a heavy user. That's why I bought these!. I loved having peace of mind with the one year return. However now that I need to actually use it. I'm confused and aggravated. You might have to get a legal consultant to understand it.

Other Thoughts: I keep getting bounced back and forth between newegg and the warranty company and the manufacturer. Why? Because I do not have a PC and none of the websites are tablet friendly. Wierd, they all work when I make a purchase. BTW, its the same with the newegg app. So, I will try the phone and see what happens. But I should not have to do this!!!!!!!!!!

4 out of 5 eggsStrange fitting :-) Great bargain!

Pros: These things are tough! *Lightweight *Won't fall off your head.

Cons: Not the best sounding.

Other Thoughts: They take a minute to get used too. I have had these for three months now. Wanted a pair oh headphones that could survive physical activity. Well, these have passed every test. Been dropped several time's. Cord pulled on. Kid tested*( 2 yr old) lol...Can't seem to break em! Gonna buy more! Also they fit comfortable. Yea!

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely indestructable

Pros: These headphones sound fairly good. Honestly for teh price you aren't interested in sound quality - its about portability and durability. And these shine - I've owned my pair for about 3-5 years. They've been abused and survived everything. Plus, they keep the standard headphone profile (I hate earbuds or behind-the-head or ear clip-ons). I highly recommend these.

Cons: None really. if the cord is too short, use an extender.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat quality, super light

Pros: You get quite the bang for your buck here. These headphones have great sound quality and they are very comfortable. They don't hurt your ears or head and you don't lose much sound compared to another paid I bought from Walmart (which I quickly returned).

Cons: The only thing I found to be a con is that the length of the cord itself could have been a tad longer.

Other Thoughts: If you need new headphones, buy these, you won't regret it!
