Introduction:

I enjoy music and was very glad that Sennheiser sent the CX 686G SPORTS for us to review. I was asked if I could do the review and when I found out it was from Sennheiser, I thought I'd give them a try. I then discovered that the product was a pair of earbuds, and I lost a bit of enthusiasm. Earbuds do not stay in my ears and often hurt. With that in mind, let's get into this review to see if the CX 686G SPORTS are indeed what I have been looking for.

Box

 

First Look:

At first glance these In-ear headphones look uncomfortable with the hook at the top. They come with three different sizes of Antimicrobial ear adapters, have an in-line "smart" remote and microphone.

Bundle

 

Also included in the bundle is a soft case to store these bright-green earbuds and their nice flat cord that doesn't tangle easily. On the cable, there is a clip that you can use to attach these to your shirt or coat so that the cord doesn't pull these out of your ears. This is a nice touch that doesn't come with many other earbuds I've seen and tried.
