Update 6/29/15: The PMX 680 earbuds have been discontinued by Sennheiser, but is still available on Amazon in limited supply.
One of the most popular sports headphones in the headphone series created by Sennheiser and Adidas is the PMX 680 Sports Earbuds.
Ergonomic Neckband. A lot of runners swear by using a neckband to ensure a good fit, but it’s difficult to create a neckband that is comfortable for everyone. Well Sennheiser did just that with their flexible ergonomic neckband design.
Extremely Comfortable. In addition to the neckband which locks the headphones in place, unlike newer models these earbuds are not in-ear canal. They rest comfortably on the outer ear.
Increased Visibility. It’s not something a lot of people think about, but Sennheiser added a reflective yellow stripe on the neckband for increased visibility. Perfect for those who like to workout later or at night.
Big Time Bass. If you’re like us then you love some nice bass and these headphones won’t disappoint.
Sound Leakage. The PMX 680 are not in-ear canal ear buds. Instead the ear buds sit just outside the ear canal. On one hand they seem to be a lot more comfortable, but you will experience some sound leakage.
Sennheiser put quite a bit of time into testing these neckband workout headphones for heavy movement, which essentially means bring on any sport and they’ll stand up to the test. The Sennheiser PMX 680 also have a built in moisture protection system making them ideal for active environments.
The foam earpads are comfortable, washable and packed with high intensity sound, making every workout you have better. Not only are the headphones lightweight and sturdy but they also won’t be falling out of your ears during your next workout, primarily due to the neckband.
One other feature we really like is the ability to choose between different length cables. Sennheiser has included a shorter cable for use with an armband or longer extension cable with in-line volume controls for those who workout with their MP3 player around their hip or in their pocket.
We recommend these sports earbuds for anyone. No lie, these headphones are amazing; it is no wonder they are one of Sennheiser’s best selling sports headphones of all times.
