Monster iSport Strive review

 

Stylish, sporty-looking and safety-conscious buds with a fine sound

Solid, up-for-it delivery Balanced presentation Stylish; safety-conscious

Fit and ‘open’ sound won’t be for everyone Rivals have more clarity and expression

There’s a sense of openness in the soundstage and, as is promised, road traffic is audible beneath your music (as long as the volume isn’t turned to the max). Of course, ambient noise leaking in can distort the sound a little, but if that’s a...

Conclusions There are several exercise earphones, both wired and wireless, that sound better than the iSport Strive, even in this budget price range. The issue here is the lack of a real seal at the ear canal—they're basically earbuds, not in-canal...

These were uncomfortable.

 

These are the first sports earphones I have tried, and I was looking forward to having some to wear while walking and spinning. Unfortunately I found them very difficult to wear. I could only just get the small ones in my ears. They provided good sound...
