The headphones arrived in an impressive zippered pouch with multiple ear inserts. The shorter cord is the perfect size for runners using an armband to listen to an iPod or phone and includes clips to ensure the cord doesn't get wrapped in your clothing. An extension is provided in case you are using the headphones in non-sport applications or where a longer cord is necessary. The supplied armband is comfortable but does not allow for touchscreen operation. Small memory wire is comfortable wrapped around the base of the ear but due to the size, it loses some shape after running long distances. Different sized single and triple isolating inserts are included but none of them adequately isolated the outside noise without being uncomfortable. Bass was deep, midrange vocals were clear, and treble adequately represented in top 40, rock, and dance. Classical movie scores were less impressive with dynamic range a little muted. Overall, the earphones were comfortable and sounded above average.
