Sennheiser/Adidas PMX 680i

Nothing kills a workout faster than faulty earphones. And they can go wrong in so many ways -- poor sound quality, bad fit, you name it. While a neckband-style earphone set may not seem like the most comfortable option, the Sennheiser/Adidas PMX 680i earphone/mic combo for Apple products will likely persuade you. Its design, which offers a universal fit for all head shapes and sizes, provides a secure fit that holds tight through the most intense workouts.

The PMX 680i isn't your standard earphone set. Designed exclusively for Apple's iPhone, iPod, and iPad products (1/8 inch, 3.5 mm connector), it also comes with a hand-operated three-button volume control with built-in microphone. This allows you to multi-task on the go: adjusting sound, managing your playlist and making calls easily.

Concerned about sweat and the elements? The PMX 680i has Kevlar-reinforced cabling that is water resistant and can handle extreme temperatures in any season. The neckband is also sweatproof (no sticking to skin, either). The earphones come with one pair of foam earpads, storage pouch, cable clip, instruction manual and rubber ear cushions, as well as a two-year warranty.

Colour is black and yellow. Price is $69.95. To purchase or to find a list of retailers, visit www.sennheiserusa.com
