Pros: comfy, work well with iPhone

Cons: durability

so they worked, but didn't last.

 

:-( the rubber ear pads would fall off.  I was continually looking for the pads.  You can buy spares, but only in packs of 5 pairs for $25 from specified Sennheiser dealers.  Do poor design that they could fall off.

 

:-( the strain relief on the connector didn't work.  eventually, the cable split under the strain relief.  A 'sports' model designed with specific iPhone features should be able to withstand being in a pocket.

 

:-( the screwheads rusted.  They are a 'sports' model designed to withstand sweat.  Ya coulda used some stainless steel screws guys...

 

:-( One of the speakers started rattling.  I don't really listed to load music, but they started rattling and the audio quality deteriorated.

 

 

So they did me great for the first year and I loved them at first.  But they really were not durable enough.    It seems that Sennheiser have now replaced the model with a new PMX685i.
