Sennheiser OCX 686 review: Wired for sports

 

These Sennheisers get the important things right: this is a comfortable design (so long as you get on with over the ear hangers) and the sound quality

Great sound quality for the price point ; Good cable ; Comfortable to wear ; Rain and sweat resistance

Right-side weighting bias as cable goes around neck ; 3.5mm only so no Bluetooth wireless

If you're after a pair of wired headphones with a 3.5mm plug for sport, then the Sennheiser OCX 686 is certainly worth a look. With an affordable price, rain- and sweat-resistance, and comfortable-to-wear over-ear hook design, these in-ears are a...

Sennheiser OCX 686G Sport Earbuds Review

 

Sennheiser has delivered yet another solid pair of workout headphones with the OCX 686G Sports. With a sweat- and water-resistant design and cords that don't tangle, these buds are convenient to throw in your gym bag and use during even the most...

Boisterous sound ; Water-resistant design ; Tangle-free cords

Awkward over-ear design

The $109 Sennheiser OCX 686G Sports earbuds have great sound quality and a sweat-resistant design, but you'll have to deal with an awkward over-ear structure.

It doesn't fall out of the ear easily.

When I use it for a long period it can become painful.

Sennheiser OCX 686G

 

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.
