KitSound Cobra Sweat and Water-Resistant Flat Ribbon Cable Sports Earphones – Pink : Great headphones- sadly broke after 2 months of moderate use

Once again, kitsound pulled off another great product. I have other kitsound items in my collection of stuff and i was more then pleased to purchase these with their history of well made, great sounding and extremely well priced products. If you were to walk into a high street store and purchase the usual branded headphones for this kid of price, you’re find them so terrible that you wished you had not bothered and just given the money spent to a homeless personthese, however are worth it. They are a really well balanced pair of headphones. The sound (with the right tip remember) had a great balance of deep base but the mid and treble are still there as they should be. Really well made and a very good length for sports earphones. As always, they are only water and sweet resist so don’t go swimming with them but i every confidence that they will be withstanding my un-natural bucket amount of sweet i seem to produce in running. For the price: you can’t go wrongfor the quality: perfectover all – 5/5.

These are great value at the price (blue ones were seven quid). I wish they did them in white or black tho. The flat cable really does work in stopping tangles. Bought these for sunbathing and finally got them to stay in, after trying all the sizes of earbud, by putting them in upside down (that’s suggested in the instructions actually). If you buy these for sports i think you’ll be disappointed as they probably will fall out. Maybe nikki lauda would have better luck than me. Sound quality is great, lots of bass and good clarity all round. Highly recommended for sedentary people.

Received headphones on friday (6th dec) after ordering a few days before. I love this brand of headphones so brought my boyfriend a pairvery happy customer, very happy overall.

I got these for my husband because he enjoys listening to his music when he is out and about doing sports. He mentioned previously the fact that the phones have to fit securely and the wires have to be easily manageable – with good sound quality but not total noise cancelling – for safety purposes. I looked on amazon for various products and came across these. The price was not bad and the reviews were pretty good – so i thought, for the price, it is worth a buy and see whether they would suit his purpose. I must say that so far – hubby has been more than satisfied with the phones in relation to the physical quality (i personally really like the ribbon wires – stops me from getting them all tangled- and the product felt wellmade and not flimsy), and sound quality – good base, nice middle tones, not tinny at all. The comfort of the phones is also worth mentioning. Hubby’s concern is that the perspiration would affect how securely the phones stay in – but he said that he has not had this issue so that’s good by me. I am tempted to get my own – so that i do not have to borrow hubby’s especially since he has been using them loads.

Great headphones- sadly broke after 2 months of moderate use because a power lead inside of the pod came off the speaker.

They are ok but they didn’t really stay in my ears very well and weren’t any good in the gym. They didn’t tangle much though and the sound was good quality. I bought some phillips sweat proof sports earphones which are much better.

After buying the kitsound ribbons and loving them i was looking for something more suitable to use for the gym. The longer cable drew me in straight away as i hate being on the treadmill and the earphone start to get tugged out of your ear. I used the medium sized buds and seem to be getting on fine – no sign of them coming out whilst at the gym. Again i’m so pleased they have the flat cable, now i have 2 pairs of headphones with a flat cable i don’t think i can ever go back. The headphones sound great for the price, and although not quite as good as the ribbons what can you expect for half the price. Love the way the yellow and black go together. To be honest i haven’t worked that hard whilst wearing these but i also got caught in the rain wearing these and trusted them enough not to worry – of course they were fine. Again i can’t think of a fault and these are the best headphones you would get for this price.

The earphones are really good quality but they don’t stay in my ears for long. I always wear a hairband when i run luckily so that helps. Must be my ears though becuase everyone else seems to have reviewed them well.

Ok, so i looked at the price and wondered if i should take a punt on these. It seems i was correct to do so. I am very much pleased with them. So far i have used them most nights in the gym the sound is great. The isolation is very good and i don’t seem to need to turn them up too much due to this. I personally love the tangle free cord. It was not something i was looking for but i will be from here on as i am so surprised to well they can be untangled. I have found the standard tip is fine for me so after a little playing with just got them to work. Sound perfect and they look cool too. I could not help but go for the pinki think for this kind of a price range i would not mind replacing them every 6 months but while i am not there yet, i can not see any reason why i would need too as the build quality is very impressive.

These earphones are great for going out for runs, there water resistant which is a real bonus. All round great earphones, specialising in sport.

These things did not fall out of my ears and worked really well for their purpose (i run the cable up my back between a t and top or just under the t). However, i bought two and both are now broken – both at the plug end although i rarely unplugged them. They lasted about 8 months and 10 months respectively, so i will buy another set simply because i want to give them another go and (when they worked) they worked well (for me).

As mentioned by the previous reviewer, i was also a little sceptical about these earphones as they were so reasonably priced, but after reading the other reviews decided to give them a go, and i must say i wasn’t disappointed. They not only look really funky, great shape and good choice of colours, they are very practical, and most importantly sound great and are really comfy to wear. They have a really nice clear well rounded and full sound and are so comfy compared to my previous earphones that i bought to use with my ipod. They come with 3 sizes of ear gels, i found the medium to be a perfect fit and that the sound isolation worked well. This is the first pair of earphones that i’ve had with the ribbon cord and it has been very successful, cuts down on all the time of trying to unravel lots of tangles before i can listen to my music – a bonusand, although these are water resistant and not waterproof, i was caught in light rain and my headphones didn’t fail me, so i’m confident they will stand the test of time at the gym or out jogging. Great sounding, funky earphones at a great price – would definitely recommend as a all round good buy.

I purchased these based on the other reviews and i must say as far as the sound quality is concerned they are brilliant so do not be put off by the price tag. The only issue i have found is that i cannot get the ear buds to stay in my ear properly no matter which size of bud i use. I have a feeling this is more down to my ears than anything else though as i often have problems with this kind of thing.
