While these headphones allow you stay aware of your surroundings, this also means that a lot of environmental sound will get in the way of your music. If you want to zone-in on your audio while running or working out then these may not be the best ones for you. See More
The highs are not the most detailed, but they are clear and do give an airy feel to the music. The mids are full and forward so vocals will definitely sound great. Bass is hit or miss though, depending on how well these headphones seal in your ear. If there is a good seal then bass is punchy and tight though not very powerful. Otherwise, it is likely that the bass will sound a bit on the thin side. See More
Connectivity with source devices is via Bluetooth, so in place of a full headphone cable is a flexible, soft and short cord made of rubber material that keeps the earpieces connected. You won't have to deal with a long and dangling cable. See More
These headphones do produce some low-end, but the bass does not come with a lot of power and oomph. The highs and mids are good though. They are not too forward and present a nice level of clarity. Most genres of music will sound good with these, though bass heavy tracks like dance, hip-hop, EDM and the like may sound lacking. See More
The Elite Sport sounds quite balanced with no harshness or muddiness. The highs are clear and deliver good detail. Mids sound natural and rich, while the bass is tight and controlled instead of bloated. With these headphones, you will get decent punch from the usually bass-centric workout tracks, yet you will still be able to enjoy a refined sound when listening to more mellow or instrument focused music.

The included ear tips are quite thin and squishy. They are not able to provide a good grip while in the ears, and can make the earpieces prone to falling off. These tips also adversely affect the sound so using better quality ear tips will result in noticeably improved audio. See More
The control buttons are relatively heavy to the rest of the wire which pulls the wire to the right constantly. This makes them uncomfortable for working out as the extra weight dangles on one side and sometimes can pull out the headphones from your ears if you're moving around. See More
There is no harshness to the highs, the mids are clear and the bass has good oomph without the bloat. Detail from these headphones is also good, with instruments and voices sounding clear and well-defined. This sound signature can work fairly well with all types of music, though if you really want boosted bass or highs for certain types genres, then these might fall short of your needs. See More
