    dont get these for exercise-- their great for in office as noise cancellation and crystal clear sound. i couldn't find my other headphones though and thought I'd give these atry , running you just hear the pounding etc, and rowing/weights didnt seem much better.

    I have these earphones and wear them for walking...you get used to the occasional feedback when the cable rubs against clothing..but it's worth it for the superb sound quality.

    I have a pair of Sennheiser CX300s plugged into my Creative Zen Vision M (earphones from Amazon a month ago). They are one of the best pair of earphones available but you have to get used to them as they sit inside the ear and do have some disadvantages.

    Pros:

    Crystal Clear sound with almost 90% background noise elimated..no leakage
    Light and well made
    Nearer the ear and so MP3 player volumes can be turned down lower when compared with earbuds (I don't have my Zen Vision M higher than 13)...affects battery life?

    Cons:

    Useless in strong winds....their design is open to the wind and subject to whistling which can be heard even on medium volume

    Not ideal for any activity which raises your heart rate...you'll feel and hear your pulse in your ear (transmits via the various sized rubber pads)

    I'd give them 4 out of 5 :thumbsup:

    They are excellent for bass...I've also tried the Koss sparkplugs but found they kept slipping out of my ears whereas the CX 300's have a really tight comfortable fit...I use the smallest of the supplied buds.

    Shame you cannot try before you buy.
