Recommend Product: Yes
Pros: Comfortable, clips stay tight, decent sound, great springs int the clips
Cons: Cord gets caught up easily
I purchased these a few weeks ago to replace my PX100's as my running headphone. First thing about these is how nice and compact they are. The retractable cords is a really nice feature.
Sound quality is actually pretty strong considering they are clip ons and they are very inexpensive. The highs are good quality. They are not piercing or shrill at all. If you add some EQ, the bass comes to life. They aren't going to pump air through your eardrums, but they do hit nicely. The mids is what stands out to me. They are quite clear and detailed. Voice and guitars sound really good. I run with the Nike Ipod system, and everytime that woman's voice comes on it scares the hell out of me.
The springs in the clips are great. I run 3 to 5 miles 3 or 4 days a week, so they do get worked pretty good. They have never bounded up and down or away from my ears at all. The clips are definitely one of the strong suits of these little guys.
My one hang up with these is the cords. They are very tiny and light weight and they do tend to catch on things quite easily. When this happens it of course pulls the headphone away from your ear. This can sometimes be quite annoying.
All in all I'd say they are a great value at 29.99. Sound is above expectation for a clip on and at this price point. As long as the retraction system holds up and doesn't tangle the cords or breaks, I'd say this was a fantastic purchase.
And a little footnote for the Headroom team. Service was exemplary as always! Thanks.
