I just realized something about the Sennheiser PMX 680 sport headphones: I’m still wearing them. I put them on for a test run this morning, then came home and sat down to type out some notes for this blog post. A couple minutes later it occurred to me that I’d gotten used to the feel of the PMX 680 so quickly that I forgot to take them off. This was a very good sign, and a surprising one, given that I actually hated these things when I first put them on.
See, I’m an earbuds guy. Always have been. And the PMX 680 wouldn’t fit in my ears. After a minute of trying to cram them into my ear canals, I picked up the guide manual out of desperation, and discovered they’re designed to simply be on top of—not inside—your ears. Oh.
Adventure Capitalist recommends. These things are comfortable, washable, and have great sound quality. The “680i” version even comes with a remote/microphone, so you could knock out 10k and then do a conference call all from your iPhone.
