These are actually some fantastic headphones. Not too overbearing on the bass like most cheap headphones these actual sound good for what they are and are relatively comfortable depending on your ear hole size. The loop around the ear is a must for any workout as regular ear buds tend to fall out and become distracting having to constantly put them back in. The best part is they are actually sweat proof!! I would kill headphones left and right with my sweat after a good long run, but I can say I've been using these for over a year now and they are still going strong. I might even consider picking up a second pair if the price reaches the lowest.
