    "These are a good set of headphones. The are lightweight and comfortable. Good battery life and sound is pretty good. They are sweatproof, and they stay inplace pretty well when running. I found the price too high at nearly $100, as there are other choices just as good with a cheaper price tag."

    "The Plantronics BackBeat FIT headphones are a great looking set of headphones with a couple of major flaws. The first flaw was how uncomfortable they are. I put these babies in and they felt awkward and I found myself adjusting them a lot. When I got them in right, they started to hurt. The second flaw is the material. After a while of use they seem to be breaking and wearing away. I love that they are waterproof and sweat proof. That is a major plus for me. "

    "The earbuds provide a good fit that stays in plays while moving around a lot. The earbuds are also waterproof for those individuals that sweat a lot while working out. The earbud sound quality is good for the price. This is a solid pair of earbuds all around."

    "The 66 Audio BTS+ Sport headphones are great for casual exercise or outdoor work. They headphones are comfortable, sound good, and block out outside noise pretty well. That said, they are a bit bulky and less compact than other sport earbuds I have tried. I like the sound and comfort, but the size is a bit large for my taste. Occasionally, they bounce slightly or move around during intense exercise."

    "I love these headphones. They work really well and i've had no issues with them falling out when i exercise/run. They are a little awkward at first putting them on, but once you get used to them, you really like them. The sound is really good. These are quite good for the price as well. "

    "All in all, I love these headphones and love the freedom and flexibility they have offered me. I have been particularly glad for their wireless capabilities, as getting tangled up in cords when listening to my workout tunes is always kind of infuriating. Once or twice, while intense running, they kind of started to slip off, but I messed around with the FitClip and didn't have that problem again. They also come with different sized ear buds if you're having that problem, by the way. "
