60

These are The Wirecutter's top pick for wired in-ear exercise headphones https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-wired-exercise-headph... and it's by far the cheapest price I've ever seen them at.

It looks like the whole exercise range is discounted at present so the iPhone version is also $64.00

    I bought the older orange version of the full headband model of these sports headphones years ago (the PMX model in your deal link). They were absolutely brilliant for about 9 months and then one ear stopped working. I bought another set and they only lasted about 3 months. So disappointed. Both were bought off Amazon proper (not the marketplace) so I assume they were genuine. All the earpieces were rusted from sweat so I stopped buying them, but I've never found any sport headphones that I like since. Others I've tried since either fall out or sit loose and let too much wind in. I did find some copies at Aldi once for like 3 pounds and bought a few pairs - they sat just as well on the head but didn't sound nearly as good.

    My originals were really great and I don't know why more companies don't make the headband sport headphones at reasonable prices. I've seen a few but I'm not prepared to shell out $200 for any pair of headphones now since I found these Sennheisers were full of rust, no matter how good the promises. And they were only about GBP15-20 at the time too - the prices have gone absolutely stupid now. The only difference I can see is the little controller hanging down from the earpiece.

    I may try these new models at $65 but I'm a bit put off by that controller - don't want it tugging or flapping when I'm running hard. Still a bit expensive for what they are I think but I've never found anything to replace mine at reasonable prices and I've been keeping an eye out for 7-8 years.

    They really did sit tight and had great sound so probably worth it at this price, IF they last.

      If i remember correctly, Sennheiser offers international warranty for all their products which should be 2 years. Did you not try getting these replaced when they stopped working?

        No, I lived in the UK at the time and they were sent from Amazon US. I didn't know about the Sennheiser warranty at the time and just assumed I'd have to deal with Amazon US - so I didn't bother as the postage probably would have cost almost as much as I bought them for in the first place (as I said they weren't all that expensive way back then).

        Interesting I just saw someone else mention a 2yr warranty on a review of this new model I was reading. That's probably enough to make me pull the trigger if it's valid in NZ too. Cheers.

          lol yea sennheisers offers international warranty so even if you bought it from amazon US, you can still get it fixed anywhere in the world. As long as you have a receipt for proof of purchase.
