    "The flexible design makes it likely they will provide a comfy fit, and the water/sweat resistant material makes it ideal for workouts. The battery life is advertised as 8 hours, but many users have found the battery to give out sooner. Still, there is ample power for any normal workout routine. "

    "The Harman Kardon Soho is a simple pair of headphones with a stylish look. They connect via bluetooth, but aren't really great for running as they can easily fall off during exercise, since they are on-the-ear headphones. It's may be better to look for over-the-ear headphones or earbuds that sit securely in your ear."

    "These headphones are for children, and are the most well constructed headphones around. I wouldn't use them for running, because it feels like they'd eventually fall apart on me. "

    "I found the sound quality on these headphones to be exceptional! You can really feel the value of the materials in the comfort level and fit of the headphones. My one complaint is that there is not battery (replaceable or rechargeable) and tends to drain the battery on my phone or mp3 player rather quickly."

    "These are mostly good headphones and the sound is impressive. But, they lose signal intermittently and the finish is already pealing on them. They're good, but overpriced for what you get."
