Sennheiser adapts to the ever growing popularity of the iPhone and iPod by adding increased compatibility to one of their most popular sports headphones. The Sennheiser Adidas PMX 680i Sports Headset is very similar to the Sennheiser Adidas PMX 680 but with enhanced usability.
Upgraded for the iPhone. The remote and microphone are supported by iPod touch (2nd and 3rd generation), iPod classic, iPod nano (4th and 5th generation), iPod shuffle (3rd generation), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad and Macbook, Macbook Pro and Mac Pro (2009 and later). Voice Control is supported by the latest iPod touch, iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.
Safety. It’s not something a lot of people think about, but Sennheiser added a reflective yellow stripe on the neckband for increased visibility and safety. Perfect for those who like to workout later after sunset.
Durable Neckband. A lot of runners will swear by using a neckband to ensure a secure fit, but it’s difficult to design a neckband that is comfortable and durable. Well Sennheiser did just that with their flexible ergonomic neckband design.
Sound Quality. The sound quality continues to be a slight problem, even though we thought the sound quality was fine. Some people have complained about the sound quality of the earbuds. Typically sound quality can be increased with in-ear canal earbuds, but Sennheiser emphasized a fit and durability with the PMX 680i.
The original Sennheiser PMX 680 are some of the most popular workout headphones to date. By increasing in-line compatibility with Apple’s new products the Sennheiser PMX 680i may become even more popular over the next few years. While there are several neckband headphones available there aren’t many (if any at all) that are better suited than the PMX 680i.
