Sennheiser/adidas PMX 680

Summary | Full Review | Reader Reviews | Gallery | Discussion

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 to sport didn’t harmonise perfectly. The cable seemed too long, the volume adjuster was at the wrong height for me and interfered with my running style. The volume adjuster could have been attached anywhere to my clothing but I wasn't su where? I struggled to attach it anywhere other than on my collar, and this resulted in unpleasant chafing.

This said, the PMX 680s are pretty tough and put up with a dousing of sweat on a 10 mile run. Not quite a joy to wear, but certainly something to work with.
