Sennheiser MX 686G Sport

 

The Sennheiser MX 686G Sport earphones pack some serious bass and a secure fit, but the overall sound signature could use a bit more treble presence.

Powerful audio performance with deep bass response. Secure fit. Exercise-focused design.

Sound signature could be more crisp. Only one set of eartips. Can be difficult to get proper ear-to-ear audio balance.

If bright, crisp treble combined with less-overwhelming bass is your thing, consider the MX 686G Sport's polar opposite in the JVC HA-ETR40, which is possibly too bright and crisp and lacking in the lows. If you're after something between those...

Sennheiser MX 686G Sport earbuds review: These workout earphones make few sonic compromises

 

These wired earbuds aren't innovative or exciting, but they deliver excellent sound.

Precision design ; Excellent sound quality ; Highly adjustable

Wired headphones aren't ideal for workouts ; Rigid ear hooks can become uncomfortable after a long workout ; Only one color option?

It’s easy to overlook boring, wired sports headphones when there are so many new models with intriguing new features crowding the market, but Sennheiser’s MX 686G Sport earbuds shouldn’t be ignored, especially if audio performance is your number-one...

SENNHEISER MX 686G Headphones - Green & Grey

 

Not sure how they're supposed to actually fit in an ear. There are random yellow hook bits on the top that don't seem to serve any purpose at all. Next time I shall return to my prefered headband style.
