    These headphones are dependable and I have never had problems with sound or fit regardless of how much I sweat.

    They stay comfortably in my ears during my riding lessons no matter how much I sweat.

    So far they seem to be very good headphones.

    I like the fact that these headphones are made to be worn while sweating. Big plus.

    Poorly Designed

    Beware: one wire is longer than the other because it is intended to go around the back of the neck. While this is theoretically a nice feature because it prevents dangling in front of you while active, in practice it is very uncomfortable when you're sweaty.

    This is my 4th pair. They don't do well with sweat! They do stay in the ear well.

    Nice headphones, although the unique design doesn't completely prevent them from slipping out of your ears due to the bounce of running, etc. It could just be my ears, but when I'm sweating enough and bouncing up and down enough, they eventually start to fall out, causing me to have to repeatedly dry off them (and my ears). But all in all, they're good earphones.

    Decent inexpensive earbuds, only 3 choices for ear canal size. My size between small and medium no choice went with medium, slips out when sweaty on treadmill workout. They are moisture resistant which is good.

    Great for shorter runs

    I get really sweaty on my runs and have found that I have to adjust them too much if I run anything 5 miles or more. Really about 3 miles is when I have to adjust. Other than that, the sound is great and they have survived both my gym workouts and outside runs.

    They work great but the only problem I see is the sweat-proof isn't all what it is cracked up to be. It stays in place but is a little quite bothersome after I wear them for so long. For most people may not have this problem.

    They hold up during a workout. Sweat gets it and it doesn't effect it. Although after two months, one ear piece lowered in volume.

    I use these headphones for running and they fit well, have decent sound quality and I have not had any issues with them. I have invested a lot of cash in expensive headphones only to have them stop working probably due to getting sweat in them from running. I have not had that problem with these. Great purchase!

    Earbuds that stay in!

    I have tried all sorts of earbuds in the past but none of them ever stayed in my ears for an extended period of time. A Best Buy employee recommended the JVC Sport Clip-On Earbuds and I have been very happy. I did not want to spend a lot of money because I just use them while doing yard work and exercising. I still have to adjust them once in a while when I get hot and sweaty, but they do not fall out!

    These headphones are the cheapest "sport" headphones on the market, meaning they are "water proof". I've owned a few pairs of these and they are water proof, until they aren't. No headphones are truly sweat proof, eventually they will fail. These last longer than Sony's cheapest so they are worth the money. My one complaint is the soft ear pieces always fall off. They give you replacements which is good because you will need them.

    Price point decent. Had another pair at half the cost, same brand, couldn't find. Good if on the move, still fall out of ear when jogging and sweaty. But still a must compared to what device came with. Sound quality good. Not studio quality.

    I usually have to replace my earphones every year because I use them during workouts and the sweat/moisture destroys them. Sure enough that happened the other day so I went in to Best Buy to buy some more. I decided to spend the extra money ($10 more) to purchase these active wear earbuds in the hopes they will last longer since they're meant to endure sweat. I wanted to compare them with another product so I also bought Sony's version of these headphones, both priced the same but slightly different designs. I listened to one song (the same song) with both to compare sound quality (bass, crisp, clear, etc.. . @@@@@@@ and if they would fall out while walking at a fast pace. The Sony pair was hard to hear because they sit in your ear, but don't actually go into the ear canal. The JVCs were AMAZING! I listen to a lot of songs with heavy bass, and these don't disappoint. I heard the songs in a whole new light compared to my old earbuds that I thought delivered good quality. I'm sure you could get better sound quality/performance for earbuds that are $150+, but if you're looking for a product that delivers and is affordable, these JVCs are the headphones you want to buy. They come with small, medium, and large buds to suit your ear needs. I have tiny ears and usually stay away from these gummy buds because even the "small" size is usually too big for me, but these fit like a glove. I would definitely buy these again and recommend them to anybody looking for a good pair of headphones to use when exercising.

    Next best thing to Christmas tree tangled lights

    Every year I have to untangle Christmas tree lights. I don't get it. I try balling them up in different ways, but the next year they are tangled up. Not only that, but somehow over the course of the year the bulbs burn out. So a holiday tradition at my house is to sit on the floor untangling lights and trying to find the one that is burned out that makes the rest of the string go dark. What's this have to do with my ear clip-on headphones? Not much really because they have to do with hearing not seeing. I wear them at the gym so I can watch Netflix on the treadmill. The clips keep them from falling off [the insides of my ears get all slippery when I sweat]. The sound quality is good enough to hear Bruce Willis or Nicole Kidman speak in near whispers. Plus I don't have to converse with the people next to me--they can obviously see my headphones! Great for an introvert at the gym. But just like my Christmas tree lights, they get tangled up. Every morning I have to take time to unravel the cord. How do these things get tied up in knots every day? Every. Single. Day. Alas. Perhaps technology will come up with a solution one day. Until then, these are just what I was looking for at a price I could afford. Five stars
