The first thing I noticed during testing was how snug the buds and earpiece felt. It was nigh-on impossible to dislodge them without using fingers which bodes well when moving vigorously during exercise (or head-banging to heavy rock, if that's your bag).

The audio quality is excellent and produces a crisp sound with very little bass hum. I was impressed with the strength of the Bluetooth connection when outdoors and subject to higher levels of interference, with Bose's offering faring far better than many market comparators.

To that end, the headphones felt significantly more reliable when it came to combating issues such as connection drops.

The music sharing feature allowing two simultaneous connections is another nice touch and ideal when working out with a friend.

Bad points?

It would be nice to be able to adjust the cable length between the earpieces because although the provided clothing clip works well, it is less ideal when wearing lower-cut sport apparel such as a running vest.

Best for ...

Those who find having to adjust regular ear buds while participating in sporting activities a constant source of frustration. I didn't need to touch the headphones once during 30 minutes on the treadmill.

Avoid if ...

You prefer external ear clasps to keep buds in place as not everyone will like the sensation of the internal tips design touching their inner ear.

Score: 9/10.
