Nike Flight Headphones [Review]

Since I went back to working out reguraly this term, I found it more important to get headphones that will be less of hassle and more convienint to use than the regulars. I wasn't sure what I was looking for but yesterday I found something that looked like it would do the job...
The Nike Flight Headphones


Bought them for around 45 $ and on the way home I opened them and put them on excitedly ...
3005- Scars of Broadway was the first song i played.... Hmm The sound is alright but they are very uncomforatble... Everytime I move my head, one of the ear buds rolls out of my ear... I had to keep holding the headfones against my ears to listen properly...

Ridiculous I thought ! How furious I got with Nike ! So overpriced, so much marketing...
And I pay 45$ for 'Sports headphones that are especially designed to be sweat resistant' and I cant even listen to a song properly while I am sitting down... I threw them in the back seat where my small sister was sitting and was mentally planning when to go return them...

I reach my home... I notice my sister walking with the headphones on her ears ...its not falling ? intresting !
Well my first conclusion was to think they were too small for me and somehow her head was smaller and they fit perfectly...

Later that night, with the headphones on my desk...I decided to give them one last try.. I put them on.. played a random MGMT song... my hands on standby, waiting for one of the sides to slip... 10..20..30 seconds pass and everything is alright ... well obviously they will fall off if i stand up.... stood up, nothing happend....
maybe if i jump around .. i went down the stairs ..nothing happend....
I took my soccer ball out and started dribbling on the lawn... the headphones needed a bit of re-adjustment...
i fixed them and they stayed on my head for a good 10-15 mins till i broke into sweat and decided its enough...
Went back to my room, as soon as i entered the room... caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror ... and it all came to me, it was my OHHH moment .... all the dots connected...


I was wearing the headphones upside down in car.. yes upside down
Funny ? not really, its hard to tell which side goes up.. I still have to try them on before knowing if i have it on the correct side.. hahaa

Anyway, I still havnt gone to the gym with them, but they are very good so far, I think they would do just fine
