    Best bluetooth headphones I've owned!

    These are by far some of the best bluetooth headphones I've owned and I've owned quite a few from the LG Tone Pro, the Plantronics Backbeat 805, and the Motorola Rokr S305 to name a few. These headphones top them all! Comfort: They're light, come with a few different size ear pieces which allow for the removal of the ear loops if you prefer. They're flexible and do not impede your laying on a bench nor do they come out of place. They don't move around a lot and pretty much feel like you're not even wearing anything at all. Durability: They are completely flexible and can be tossed around, twisted or scrunched up and put in your pocket and they just spring back to form once released/removed. They're waterproof so no amount of sweat, or rain are going to damage them. They come with an included carrying pouch (which also doubles as an arm band and can hold phones up to the size of an iphone 5S, but sadly does nothing for my Galaxy Note 4) Features: These are by far the simplest headphones to use. There is a charging port which uses a microUSB connector which is pretty standard. There are 4 buttons two on the left ear two on the right. Press and hold the right ear function button (the smaller one) to turn the headset on and off. When turned on, answer/end by tapping, or reject a call by holding the primary right ear button if held while receiving a call. You can also press the left ear primary (play/pause) button while on a call to mute and unmute. When not on a call, the left ear primary button plays and pauses music, and when the smaller function button is pressed and held the volume increases steadily with an audible notification of reaching max volume, while tapping that button decreases the volume in small increments. Tapping the right function/power button while the headset is on will also give an audible battery level notification indicating low/medium/high battery levels. Battery Life: In terms of battery life I can wear these for about 8 hrs of straight music play. After using these all week during my gym workouts I usually end up having to charge them by the weeks end. The Plantronics backbeat 805 put up slightly better numbers but at the expense of weight and comfort, and considering the unobtrusive nature of the Backbeat Fit their battery life is excellent.

    So far I've put these through 4 workouts indoors and outdoors. They are officially awesome! I was looking for a wireless solution with a comfortable feel and sound similar to my earpods. These are it! I've tried and returned a few other sets, and these are hands down winner. They boast a solid sound profile, all day comfort, and battery longevity. call clarity is great as well! I also like the on ear controls, which are much easier to find than the dangling cord controls on other models. They are also the only model I have seen with the ergonomically designed ear pieces. Once you have made your personal adjustments they fit great and stay right in place during workouts. I would consider myself average sized at 5'10", but the fit might not be great for giants or tiny individuals. I read some reviews about them letting in too much noise and not being loud enough. This argument holds no water in my opinion. Turn the volume up on your device! I've never had to turn the volume up to 100% on this set. They actually block a good deal of sound sitting muted in ear. My gym is constantly cluttered with loud terrible music and stupid conversations. These block all that garbage perfectly! I guess they might no be loud enough if you are walking through a construction site or standing next to a bus, but most earphones struggle in that environment. Overall 5 stars for me. Great product at a great price. My only complaint is you cannot lay down comfortably on your back with this set. I have to manipulate the band and earpieces a bit to find a fit, but they still feel awkward. This not a condemnable offense and only a minor inconvenience however.

    Good and I know how to make them BETTER!

    I like this pair for many reasons. That said, there is an easy fix for those who want to make them louder!!! I have some Earhoox that I bought for my iPhone earphones. By luck, they fit these Earpods perfectly. They were invented to keep your earphones from slipping out. What I found is they actually bring the earphones deeper into your ear and thus making the volume much better!!! The website I used to find these is http://earhoox.com/?utm_source=affiliate&utm_medium=sas I would HIGHLY recommend looking into it, since I was almost ready to return this pair due to needing more volume. Another thing to consider, is your music source. If you are relying on iTunes, the volume output is weak. If you are streaming your music on Spotify, you'll have a Louder output and better BASS and clarity overall. Plus on Spotify, you can easily tweak the built in Equalizer to get all the Bass or Treble (and everything in between) you like. *With the Earhoox installed, it's just enough volume to keep me happy. Without.. well... not so much. I like that they are light and flexible. Quick charge. Was worried about the look at first, since I prefer and all Black (less is more) look, but I have to say, the Black and Blue look really good on.

    THE ONLY REVIEW YOU NEED TO READ! SERIOUSLY

    Posted
    PduB

    If you are like me you read reviews before you purchase. Well if you are thinking about these headphones I am about to make up your mind. I bought this product in March of 2015, it is now Nov of 2015 and they still work perfectly with just about everyday use. These things are comfortable to wear for extended periods of time and the design keeps anything from hanging on your neck! Pairing with your device is super simple and the buttons/controls are so easy to use a caveman could do it. LOL. They charge quickly and the battery life is very good. Now to rebuttal the only complaint about these headphones I have really seen. The sound quality is not the best. Well, I say that is false; the sound quality is perfect IMO. If you read the full description the product states it is designed for runners/joggers to be able to hear traffic so for that reason they are not noise cancelling. I am not a jogger but I think I can attest to the sound quality in another way. I frequently use loud power tools such as drills, sanders, saws, grinders and etc. I can adjust the volume a bit higher while I am using one of these tools and hear my music just fine without hurting my ears and then turn it back down as I power the tool off. Now with that said, if you buy these try pushing them into your ear and then let them relax again. You will hear the difference because they are not noise cancelling. I believe the people complaining about the sound quality want to really hear the bass, these are not for you. Lastly, the only other negative I would add is that after a while the coating begins to chip off around the ear hooks. The hooks are flexible and with everyday use I suppose some wear and tear is to be expected.

    Holy Grail

    Posted
    Erin

    I completely agree with the other review that these are the holy grail of all BT headphones! I have had many different headphones over the last few years as well as a couple different wireless ones. I run a lot, including training for half and full marathons and nobody wants to deal with wires all over the place when you're running for 2+ hours. The problem has been finding a pair that are not only comfortable but stay put. Previous headphones have had the comfort but do not stay in place and I don't want to be worried about losing them when I need to be focused on my training. These are comfortable, they don't move and the material holds up and won't show the many hours of sweat (and sometimes tears) that they have endured throughout my training. And if for some reason I do drop/lose them - they're plenty bright enough they won't be hard to find! I know most people buy headphones for the sound although that is second in priority to me for training purposes but the quality of sound definitely doesn't play second fiddle to comfort here. The sound is amazing - crisp and clear - yet I don't lose my surroundings which is very important for safety reasons for anyone utilizing them for outdoor physical activity. Lastly, I had absolutely no issues in setting these up. As soon as I powered them on and turned on my bluetooth, my phone immediately found them. I would absolutely recommend these to anyone!

    Excellent headphones for working out and running

    After taking up running, I needed a decent pair of wireless headphones. After much research I've settled on the Plantronics Backbeat FITs. There are cheaper and certainly more expensive alternatives, but for what I needed these for, they served my purpose perfectly. They connected with no problem to both my iPhone and my Apple Watch. I use these for both listening to music as well as getting audio cues from the RunKeeper app that I use to track my workouts. First, I find them to be plenty comfortable, even to the point where I sometimes forget I had them on. I've seen some people mention the headband can be annoying on runs with it bouncing around on the back of their necks. However, being a male with very thick, long hair, I've never had problem with that issue. If anything, sometimes the stupid things get caught in my hair while trying to take them off, but has been the case with just about any pair of headphones out there. Also, I really like the open nature of the design. It still allows me to hear what is going around me as well as still able to listen to my music. That is especially important if I am running along a road or while participating in a race. And lastly, I am quite impressed with the sound quality of these things. Granted, we are not talking about audiophile levels of sound quality here, but then again, this is a $130 pair of FITNESS headphones, not a $500+ pair of high-end audiophile cans such as my B&W P7s. The bass could be a little better, but overall, the highs and mid-range comes out very clear. What bass is there is pretty tight and well defined. Yes, there are probably better sounding and more expensive fitness headphones out there. In fact, I have a pair of Jaybird X2s, of which I've been hearing very good things about, that I just recently received that I am going to try out very soon (which cost nearly $180). So I will be curious how they compare to the Plantronics Backbeat FITs. Also, the included armband/carrying case is very handy. Overall, I really do like these headphones and have become my daily drivers for workouts and running.

    Many Failed! ...but I was surprised how well...

    Lets see I tried: Monsters BT Buds; Beats PowerBeats2; and Jaybirds. Only one that came close were the Beats, but when I ran outside (btw I'm training for half marathon) when it got warmer out they always fell out. Maybe too heavy or fittings were compliant w/ my ear design (LOL) - even after month of struggling w/ them I had to return them. The other two never stayed in my ears. Now these Plantronics are the best!! They stay in my ears (even on my hottest of runs), BT very reliable, and sound is very good ( i would argue better then any of the others). I get sound and fit is personal thing - but like me I ignored this brand for no tangible reason. The price and how well these work versus much more advertised and "image" centric brands - these should be your first stop. Sound great, BT stable, and don't FALL out! Been using them for 30days 6 days a week. No issues!! Great find! Hints: I have iphone 5s then 6 and kept in them in my flip belt or my pocket - I felt keeping BT device on my RIGHT side stabilized BT interference (better then other brands too). If you need on left and hear interference try moving to the right. Might be specific to where the BT is in the headphones (not sure). Also - battery life is very good. Works as advertised 6-8hrs before additional charge. When you turn them on it tells you battery life. Also, works w/out any issues w/ my apple watch (which also uses BT). Only negative is that need to be careful not to over turn the swivel ear piece. It may pop off. Don't worry snaps back in. Swivel allows for better fit adjusts 20-30 degrees (I think).

    Best So Far for Active Sports

    I wanted a set of bluetooth headphones for jogging and working out. These fit the bill perfectly. After reading the user reviews I initially got a set of JayBird BlueBuds X. These sounded great, in fact a little better than the BackBeat Fit as they are true 'buds' and are inserted into the ear canal. However the flimsy little 'anchors' that were supposed to keep them in my ears didn't work and there was always the unsettling feeling they were going to fall out when I wore them basically jammed into my ears. So I decided to go with an over-the-ear style. The Plantronics BackBeat Fit stay on well- when initially placing on your ears you have to jockey for position a little if you are wearing glasses or sunglasses; however it is well worth it because once placed correctly they will not fall off. The sound is very good; the earpiece sits against your ear canal but not very far into it; as a result you don't quite get the bass response you get with a completely in-ear 'bud'. However it is still good and not tinny or cheap sounding at all. I may spend the money and try some PowerBeats2 by Dr. Dre to see if they sound any better, but for the money these are probably the best out there. The only drawback is the 'on' button- it is a protrusion on the right earpiece which can inadvertently be pushed in while the earphones are in your gym bag. This has happened once, with the unfortunate outcome being I couldn't use the headphones that day as the battery was discharged. Overall I recommend these and will probably get a second set so I can have one at home and one at work in my gym bag.

    I needed a set of headphones for crossfit, jogging, and weight lifting. Based on the reviews I purchased these. While these are a great set of bluetooth headphones, they aren't without their limitations. The Good: The battery holds a good charge, and takes only 2 hours to charge. I'll typically get 6+ hours at full volume. It's linked to my iPod so I don't make or answer calls with it, which I hear has a significant affect on battery life. They're durable. I'm not afraid to bunch them up in my pocket, run them under the faucet to clean them up, and I've found them in the dog crate a few times. They look and perform like new. The fit is good. Not great, but good enough. I can jog, do burpees, box jumps...I've tried to get these to fall off under workout conditions and can't. I've got a giant head and the band is barely big enough to fit around it. Which brings me to the not so good... If you plan on any weightlifting, forget about it. Every time the band touches the bench, it knocks an earbud out. The earbuds do not fit snugly in my ear whatsoever and it affects sound quality and loudness. The only thing really holding them in is the fact they wrap around your ear. I use my corded headphones when weightlifting for this reason. They are not loud enough. I use CD quality MP3s and for gym workouts, they let way too much ambient noise in. Great for when you're outside and need to hear what's going on around you. If I want to go back a track, sometimes I have to restart the headphones to regain access to that feature. Price? I guess that's subjective. For $129 I want a solid all-around performer. I wouldn't consider these "gym use" because they're not loud enough and the rigidity of the band will pop an earbud out when you rest your head on the bench. Overall, if you need a headset and don't do a whole lot of weightlifting, then I'd make the purchase. Aside from the issues I have with it in the gym, I actually like them, but will unfortunately be returning them to find a better suited setup.

    comfy, yet stay put headphones for the gym

    Needed a new pair of headphones for the gym, my requirements: cordless, "loud enough", stay in place - able to use on row machine and bench, sweat resistant, comfortable, and under $100. Actually, the Plantronics BackBeats met all of these requirements! Rereading, the requirements are not ordered - I sweat ALOT! Easy to insert over/in the ear, easy to pull out - One HUGE perk to note - the behind the neck band is flexible! The whole setup is so comfortable to wear; you can move around, lay back on a bench, the neck band does not get in the way, the earbuds don't pop out. Yet, I can pull them out, drape around my neck when needed. Bluetooth sound is good, have had ZERO problems establishing or losing connection to my phone. Because these are cordless, you need to have a routine to ensure they are charging between workouts. Micro-usb connection, you should have a couple of cords laying around. ;) Gym really blocks all cell reception, so have never used them to answer a call. Others I have tried: multiple polk audio headphones, the hanging on the ear set sound great (really great), but are quite painful for my big ears. The Polk ear buds sound decent but will not stay put - even on a treadmill. I purchased a pair of yurbuds from BB - were so painful I I returned them after one workout! So painful! Several pair of Sennheisers, the behind the neck were bothersome. The earbuds were decent, but the cord was so long I think I could skip rope with them. Yea, I sound picky. I finally found a set of headphones that are comfy, sound decent and really - just don't get in the way.

    Decent at best but not worth over 100 dollars

    If it wasn’t for the great blue tooth connectivity with my iPod Nano (newest generation), I would have returned this and gave this lower stars. My main issue with this device is that there is no noise cancelling so let’s say if you’re at the gym, hate the music they play, there is a possibility you might still hear the music of the gym unless you have the volume high (not really a huge difference to be quite honest with you). Also, it doesn’t fully plug inside your ears, you’ll have space. What really is disappointing is that it doesn’t have extra set of ear buds or at least different size ear buds to replace the ones it brings. If it would have at least thrown in some extra ear buds plus different sizes, I think this wouldn’t have been an issue. One thing though, it works perfectly great especially listening to metal music like Opeth, Lamb of God, Megadeth, Testament, and so on, the sound is clear and it sounds great. I’ve jogged with these a bunch of times, outdoor jogging that is, and it doesn’t distract the sound or anything. Never got disconnected which is great. One thing that’s disappointing is that sadly, sweat can still get in your ears mainly because like I said, there aren’t any options for different sizes of ear buds. One issue that I’m having now is that when the first song is played, it has this static sound or it sounds really glitchy. Once I skip the first song, it sounds and plays fine. For 100 dollars or more, it isn’t worth it. If it had better ear buds, different size ear buds, and solid enough to at least close up the ear canal a bit, I think this would have been perfect. I would say pay and spend extra for the BEATS or any other workout headphones. I have not used this for phone calls, mainly for workouts and jogs. If you can grab these for 60 bucks or less, it’ll probably be worth it but other than that, besides the great sound quality and great blue tooth connectivity, 100 dollars is too steep.

    This is an initial product review and not a long term review so I plan to come back and update this once I use these headphones more. After opening the package, I was pleasantly surprised to feel the quality of these headphones. I was expecting a fairly rigid wraparound frame to then place in your ears but these ended up being rubbery with lots of movement and reminded me of the same qualilty that Apple puts out. The materials seem very durable to me and are VERY lightweight. I just completed my first run with them (5 miles at an intense pace) and despite all my sweat, I never had an issue of these falling out or slippage of any kind. They stayed planted around my ears the whole time. These were easy to pair up with my phone (iPhone 5C) and included a (very) short micro USB charging cable. The arm band/case that is also included is fairly nice however a little misleading. I ordered the green pair of headphones so my case is green. It's reversible and as a 'case' it is black. However to use it as a proper armband, you have to reverse it and now the entire case is green and it's more of a yellowish green than a neon green (which I personally don't like but I'm picky). The package also includes two small earbuds (though they don't look that much smaller) should you have smaller ears. Overall I'm very pleased with this. It was nice not having to worry about a cord when I was running. Again, I haven't used them much yet so I cannot yet speak to battery life or durability but I have high hopes with no reason to believe otherwise. If you do get these, one quick tip that would have saved me about 5 minutes is that tapping the volume button increases the volume and holding the button down lowers the volume.

    PERFORMED AS EXPECTED!

    I bought my BackBeat FIT after extensive research online (I was up until 3 a.m.). I was torn between these and the LG Tone Ultra, LG Tone Infinitim, and the SOL Shadow. In the end, the over-the-ear design and water repellency (plus the neat chartreuse color) helped me make my choice. I am very pleased with the headphones. They do everything I wanted them to do, which is simply to connect wirelessly with my iPod Nano, so I can listen to music when I take my daily two-mile walk, unencumbered by wires. The sound quality is what I would expect from an open design, which is fine, because it's that design that prevents me from being hit by a car. The buttons work pretty easily, once you have gotten used to them, but I wouldn't mind just a teensie, weensie, bit more volume. But, considering the low price, I can't complain. I hesitated to rate them 5 stars, but ONLY because of Plantronics' poor website support and tiny instruction booklet (I guess they're copying Apple). SUMMARY: If you're looking for an inexpensive, comfortable, water repellent, wireless headset to use for walking or jogging, these are perfect. Although I haven't tried them at my gym yet, I'm guessing they'll be okay there, too.

    Amazing open-ear headphones

    If you're looking for a pair of headphones to give you great sound with some situational awareness, look no further. I wanted something I could wear in the basement while I was working out but still hear my wife holler if she needed help with one of the kids. The Backbeat Fit definitely deliver. If you're looking for studio-like, isolated, mind-blowing sound, this isn't it. But if you're a runner or whatever and need some situational awareness and solid sound from a pair of open-ear headphones, the Backbeat Fit meet, nay, exceed the need. I don't have a comparable competitor unfortunately. In all my reviews I found that the closest competitor would be the wireless Beats, but as many reviews reveal, those are definitely bass heavy. And these are cheaper as well. The fit is great. The material is excellent. I wipe down with a baby wipe after every use to just to ensure the longest life possible. It takes 5 seconds and I know I'm not leaving the headphones coated in salty sweat. I get around 6-7 hours of playback time, which is around a week's worth of exercise. So battery life is decent. My headphones connect quickly and easily to all my devices. I do get a dropped connection every now and then with my Galaxy Note 3, but that could just be a compatability issue with the phone because my connection never drops when I'm connected to my bluetooth transmitter for my tv. Bottom line: AMAZING open-ear headphones. Not sounds isolating but that's the point! Sound quality is solid

    When looking for a pair of Bluetooth earbuds for the gym, I did some research, and initially went with the Jaybird Freedom Sprint. Well, after having two pairs fail within four months, I decided to give the Plantronics Backbeat Fit a try. I couldn't be happier! The Backbeat Fit fits nicely in my ears, and are surprisingly comfortable. The thick band that rests behind my head doesn't kink like thinner cords tend to, and it doesn't get in the way when lying flat on a workout bench. Controls are simple to operate, and instead of cheap audible beeps like the Freedom Sprints, the headphones will tell you "Power On", "Bluetooth Connected", as well as your battery level. As with any Bluetooth earbud, battery life is important, and I get a good six hours out of these. Charging is fast, and there's a nice red ring around one of the earbuds that clearly indicates a charging state, which then turns to blue when fully charged. Sound quality is great, no complaints there, and I've taken a few calls during my workouts, which are clear, plus easy to answer. I really can't recommend these enough! So far I've owned these for about four months, and they've been through plenty of workouts without a problem. But like any Bluetooth earbud, I believe it's worth buying the Geek Squad protection, because you just never know.

    Activities: Run, Ride (cycle) and Crossfit Music Genre: Jazz, Top Hits, Hip Hop, R&B, Techno, Reggae Not the best sounding headphones but great at what it's made for which is fitness. Give the headphones a chance to break in before giving up on them. You'll notice both fit and sound will improve in approximately 12-15 hours of continuous use. Out of 5 rating: Sound quality: 4 - Good clarity without being "trebly", light bass Call quality: 4 - Some commented sound is quieter than talking straight through the phone mic Connectivity: 5 - Connects automatically and quickly after initial set up Charging time: 4 - Takes about 3 hrs from depleted state. Battery life: 5 - As advertised Fit: 5 - Stays put regardless of activity intensity. Putting them on takes a little getting use to. Felt a little pain in the back of my ear after extended use at first but slowly went away after several uses. Weight: 5 - Headphones are light and sometimes forget its there Looks and aesthetics: 5 - Attractive and non intrusive. High quality material Controls and functionality: 4 - Minimalist design. Pleasant female voice giving status of headphone (power, connection, battery level and volume) Conclusion: I see myself using these for the entire product lifespan

    Did a lot of research on bluetooth headphones made primarily for exercise. It gets a little confusing due to the range of the reviews. No matter which brand or model you check there are so many varied ratings, from excellent to piece of s@#t on the same item. So it takes some hands on listening to determine if a particular headphone suits your purpose. No one can tell you what's best for you. So, I tried several from the infamous 'Beats' to no names on amazon. Eventually went to Best Buy and gave the Plantronics a try. Before giving my impression I should say that I've used all types of phones from the really expensive audiophile types to low budget throwaways. There is definitely a difference in quality in the better brands and models so it usually pays to spend a little extra and get quality. No different here. These are VG bluetooth phones that sound very good, pair easily and are well made. After charging them I paired with my iPhone and was impressed with the quality of sound, the fit and how well they stay in my ears. Great for the gym of just hanging around the house. On a scale of 1-10 with ten being the type of sound quality you get from a very expensive pair offer the ear cans, I'd easily give these a solid 8. Looking for a set of gym, running, biking or working in the yard phones? just buy these and save the trouble of searching. You will not be dissapointed.

    Best Bluetooth Headphones HANDSDOWN!!

    I usually do my research when it comes to buying good quality electronics, however this time I went into the Best Buy Store to see what they had to offer. I was looking for headphones that were bluetooth that would ring around my ear so that it wouldn't fall out of my ear when I am jogging. I also was looking to be able to take calls on my phone with the headset as well as listening to music on the go. It was magic when I found these little dream come true headphones. First of all they are super light weight and VERY VERY comfortable. I was so pleasntly surprised at the magnificent product that I had found. The bluetooth paring was so easy to do, and the headset offers all controls to accept calls, hang up, adjust the volume and change the tracks (both forward and back tracking.) I currently use this when I pair my Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, iPod Nano 7, Macbook Pro , iPad Mini, Samsung Tab 4, and my Samsung Gear 2 Neo Watch. This works with all devices as I have tried it out with a bunch of others. I chose the yellow because yellow and green is my favorite color and it makes me feel energetic (laugh all you want, but thats my personal preference :) ) They also have the blue which is also a gorgeous color and i sat in the store debating for awhile which color to choose. The headphones are crystal clear and user friendly. They stay in your ear the whole time and will never fall out! This is the best headphones I have ever bought in my life and i was so impressed!! DEFIANTLY RECOMMEND! The battery life is great as well!!!!!

    I've been looking for Bluetooth earbuds for a while and after all the great reviews on the web and from my friends I purchased these. Ultimately they went back. I'll start with the positives... PROS: The fit and the controls is amazing. It feels like there is nothing on your head and they do not move at all when running, working out, or doing yoga. I have small ears and they fit fine, boyfriend has large also fit him fine. The controls are easy to use and cover all functions so your phone can be stationed somewhere. They are super easy to pair and you can see/hear the battery level. So as far as fit and function I feel like these are top notch. CONS: I understand they are not noise canceling however these are soooo QUIET!! The max volume is what I would use to just listen to music in a quiet house while cleaning or something... I could barely hear my music while doing active things(And I wasn't even in a loud area). It's a total bummer! The sound quality is good, not great but the volume again is soooooo low. I like to have the option to drowned in music if I so chose.... That was the huge point that made us return these. Back to the drawing board!

    These headphones should've been my 1st choice. Originally,I purchased the jaybird wireless earbuds that were built for gym use, recommended by a sales associate but was unhappy with them. The sound quality was great,better than the wireless beats by dre earphones,but they would not stay in my ears with all my sweat. I found myself focusing on how I was going to keep them in my ears rather than focusing on my workout. I took them back & upgraded to the wireless beats by dre earphones. The beats were nice,lightweight,almost stayed in my ears throughout my whole workout but still could not stand up to my sweat & the other humid conditions the gym had to offer. I had them for 5 days before they went out on me & never came back on. I returned them and finally purchased The Plantronics BackBeat Fit headphones. Almost a month later & they are keeping up with me & my sweat...in the gym,sauna,steam room,pool and jacuzzi. I keep my head above the water when working out in the pool and the range is awsome. These headphones are affordable,straight to the point, have decent sound & for someone like myself who sweats alot...are a lifesaver. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who does cardio & sweats alot.
