When two big brands bash their heads together, you expect a match made in headphone heaven. However, in the case of the Sennheiser/adidas PMX 680, certain aspects just didn’t deliver. Although the snug fit and fantastic sound quality were everything we’ve come to expect from Sennheiser kit, the merger from music ...  Continue reading

VERY DISAPPOINTED. I wouldn't recommend these to anyone. If you want a durable pair of sweat proof and water proof headphones - look elsewhere Continue reading...
Get the PMX 70's for a much better quality. Go to Amazon, I don't think they sell them anywhere else! (NB: I don't work for Amazon so am not making any commission :( sad times). Continue reading...
Very comfortable to wear if you don't like in-ear headphones. Bit worried about sweat/water resistance, but time will tell.. Continue reading...
I keep on buying these because really, there is no competition, but really, they should be better built Continue reading...
Brilliant. The adidas - sennheiser partnership really works for me. I am glad that a well designed and thoughtful piece of sport headphones exist amongst the glut of other substandard products on the marketplac Continue reading...

For me these are a bit of a scam. The PMX80 (£19.90) is the same design with the exception of the short/long lead option. They both suffer from the same problem all in-ear headphones suffer from which is sweat in the outer ear - this seals the headphone into the ear and the sound is gone. Sound quality is the same (very good) so paying more for the PMX680 (£34) and the luxury of not having too much cable flopping about seems an expensive luxury.

With all the rain we've been having I'm using my swim headphones for running.

The neckband design is OK, but I prefer a pair of earphones where the cabling runs over th ears to the back of the neck.

I've been using the SoundMAGIC E30 for some time in the gym and running in the park.  Sound quality is way better than the CX680, there is no plastic neckband to get in the way and they cost less. Check out reviews online.

Sarah, thanks for that, I've just searched on waterproof headphones and found just what i was looking for, thanks. (neck loop with earbud & solid support)

I have been using my PMX 80 inside and outside for quite a while - no problems at all, never fall out, and the foam covers on the ear pieces negate all issues with sweat etc.

Worth the money.

Brian.
