Seems like a good deal, What Hifi 4 Star in March 09,

Ready to ramp up your workout? The OMX 80 Sport Eco has the same features, spec and accessories as the OMX 80 Sport II - and is supplied in recycled packaging. Not only will you enjoy a bass-driven stereo sound but the flexible ear-hooks also offer a secure and comfortable fit - in contrast to standard earbuds which often drop out of your ears. Their sweat-and-water resistant constuction makes then an ideal companion for all music-loving sports enthusiasts.

Water-and sweat-resistant
After active use, simply rinse the headphone clean under running water and pat dry. The OMX 80s can be conveniently stored in a handy carry bag. Covered by a tough 2-year guarantee, these headphone will not corrode and can even be used in temperatures of - 10 degrees centigrade or in high humidity. Extremely tough and rugged.

Upgrade your sound
You will be amazed at the difference in sound quality from the supplied music player earbuds. A great, rhythmic bass is just what you need to keep you going (when the going gets tough at the gym). Sennheiser use a unique technology to enhance the bass which is often missing from small earphones.

Unique, eco-friendly headphone packaging
Help reduce the amount of packaging that goes into landfill. This pioneering design uses recycled paper and does not contain any plastic or adhesive. Available through selected retailers only.

Got these a couple of days ago. The sound quality is pretty good but as they're not inner ear you do hear the traffic/wind noise. Sit fairly comfortably on my ears and stay in place when I'm running or cycling. Worth it for the price.

Hot! Heard really good things about these!

I think that makes them a safer choice for cycling. They seem pretty well-designed. Do you get lots of cable noise from them when cycling?

"# Sound pressure level 114 dD (sic)"

Hello hearing aid...

Really not a good idea to use earphones when you're cycling. You can tell a lot about the traffic and what is behind you etc just from the noise.

Yes, I would agree it is a risk, which is why I would not want to use anything that rendered me deaf to outside noises.
#7
Anyone able to get an RAC code to work with this? I got a message saying something to the effect of the voucher not being valid for this type of item.

Any idea if these would be any good for a 7yr child?

My daughter struggles with the inear headphones, so I am looking for something that clips over the ears.

Also being outside the ear, looks safer for kids.

I would have thought that what you should be more concerned about volume levels than anything else. I don't know if younger ears are more sensitive to damage, but even if not, I can imagine that getting into the habit of using headphones at excessive volume early on will be a harder habit to break in later life, and it is very easy to damage your ears through headphone use, because you have to have a higher actual volume than the volume you perceive compared with using loudspeakers.

Yeah good point on the volume levels. I have seen these specific JVC HA-KD10-P ones that limit the max volume level.
