I have several of these earphones that i use for computers, radio, tv etc. The audio fidelity is great with surprising bass. They are so light that you hardly know you have them on. For the price they can’t be beat.
I use these headphones 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, sometimes more and they are perfect for me. Yes the speaker pieces are hard plastic so they can be uncomfortable if you don’t position them correctly, but they’re really easy on your head and ears and have pretty decent sound for cheap headphones. Some of my neighboring cube dwellers can hear my music if i turn it up loud because of the open style of the speaker setup but they all wear headphones too so oh well. Overall, great purchase if you’re looking to save some money and just need a pair of speakers strapped to your head. Not sure how they would work as ‘sports headphones’ since they never leave my desk. I’ll leave that to someone else to review. Here are the specifications for the Coby Sports Neckband Earphones CVE207:
- Engineered with natural human factors for secure fit and maximum comfort in mind
- New unique style neckband design
- Ultra lightweight in-ear type
- High performance 15mm samarium cobalt magnet drivers for super bass sound
- Convenient single-sided cord
I really like these because they don’t cover my ear and make it sweat. This pair already broke but i was able to superglue it. This pair seems wider than the previous ones: i can’t push both sides into my ear canal like before. These are not for people who want to rock out, but if you’re sweating and just want some tunes, they’re easy to put on and off and provide enough audio to enjoy listening (for me anyway).
We’ve used these over several years now and need to replace one and this is just like the others great product too bad it was discontinued.
Reviews from purchasers :
- These are great. I use them for voice over projects where
- nice open air phones
These were my favorite of this style. Inexpensive and very very durable. I use them for cycling (so they fit even when wearing the bike helmet) and working out (so constantly exposed to sweat, but no problems in the ears as they aren’t ear buds). I probably went through 10-15 pairs over around ten years but alas no longer available anywhere. The most recent order came from a guy in south korea who had a half dozen or so at a good price. No other headphone has come close.
I am using this headset for a yr now and they are still working just great. I bought it for 12 bucks, at the current price its a steal.
I use them to work out and on bike trails. I use them in reverse so that the left side is worn on my right ear and vice versa for the ride side of the headphone. These are one of the best headphones i have ever used for working out because they stay put.
I use them for voice over projects where i have to appear on camera but can’t have the sounds of the game be picked up on camera because i need just my live voice sounds picked up in front of the camera and the game sounds both on a separate tape track and my ear while playing. So as long as these headphones are on my ear and reasonably in there, the sounds don’t travel much farther than my ear. And i get to move around a bit without worrying about them falling off. I know they probably make other more advanced stuff these days that serve the same purpose, but for the person who doesn’t want to look into that a whole lot right now and just stick with what’s familiar, these are perfect. I wish they would keep making these just for the basicness of their usability. Now i just got to remember to always keep them where i won’t step on them and hope they last for years.
I got these for working out and i cannot complain, they are pretty comfortable and the sound quality is good. For the price i paid they are an excellent buy. I see that some other people had trouble with the fit of them. This is the first time i have purchased this type of fit headphone but they fit and stay on without any issue through my entire workout.
They are cheap, fit fairly well and are comfortable. When plugged into the tvs on the treadmill at the gym sweat gets in the earpieces and actually causes you to get small electric shocks. In less sweaty activities i haven’t had this problem.
