    "Beats Solo3 are a great pair of on ear workout headphones. I would suggest buying the extended warranty. The sound is amazing and very pure. I love to distract myself when working out and these headphones are light enough that I can do that with no issues!"

    "Riding public transportation can be a pro and a con. One of the cons is the loud background noise of the what you are riding, the noise of the other passengers or both. When I need that quietness just to concentrate or take a quick nap, these DT770 Pro headphones will do the job. No more hearing those shouting matches of who took what seat or grump kids."

    " The Plantronics BackBeat offers a Huge battery life so you dont have to worry about constantly charging, the sound quality is pretty solid, and the microphone quality is equally compared to the head phones that cost way more than this one for 80 i would call it a excellent buy "

    "I think these are terrible for working. There is no way these headphones will stay on your head during any kind of active workout. First off, they are very clunky and big. In no way are these designed for any kind of active movements and they are grossly over priced. I'd say search for something better."

    "Good headphones for the price- connect quickly and easily for good sound quality and low static/interruption. I lift weights, run and play basketball in these all the time. My old wireless headphones shorted out due to sweat; seems like that won't be a problem here as these are sturdy and water-resistant. Battery life is also far superior to any wireless headphones I've ever had--the 12 hours listed is honest. "

    "I can do much better than this. I need a good , solid, reliable pair of workout cans that don't get in my way. These are wired; strike one. They aren't very durable and the band feels cheap; strike two. The sound quality isn't up to par with other cans in this category; strike three. I'll keep looking. "

    " If you are looking for the best ear workout headphones, I would probably consider headphones other than Bluedio T3 Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones. While they are durable and they work perfect for movies, these headphones are definitely not workout headphones."
