PROS

  • Living up to the product's name, the headphones feel truly thin.
  • They do a great job of blocking out external noise.
  • Expect solid bassy sound.

  • The rubber-coated cable may get tangled up with your hair and clothes.
  • The highs might be too bright, depending on your personal taste.
  • Inserting the earbuds can be cumbersome and may take a bit of getting used to.
The iSport SuperSlim in-ear wireless earphones from Monster are sweat-proof and designed to push you through your workout, thanks to the pumping bass. The SuperSlims are lightweight and slender, and they offer about five hours of playback time. The cord houses a microphone and volume controls. You get three different sizes of earbud covers and fins, a micro USB charging cable, and a drawstring mesh storage bag. They're supposed to stay in your ears with the water-resistant ear clips--and you can run the SuperSlims under the faucet. They are currently only available in green, but black is coming soon, says Monster.

The included in-ear tips deliver a comfortable snug fit for most any ear. One of the best things about them is that I am able to wear my bike helmet and sunglasses, or even my snowboarding helmet and goggles with no problems.

The iSport SuperSlim are one of the most secure sporty in-ears we've tried. Even when things get sweaty, they don't budge, and the build-up of moisture doesn't make them uncomfortable to wear.

They are a fantastic workout headphone. Sound reproduction is pure and the earbuds really stay put...I don't really use these for phone calls, and when I do, I just have the right ear bud in, otherwise I find myself shouting, due to the great noise cancellation.

I’m really into bass and EDM [electronic dance music], and these earbuds founder with that style of music; but if you lean more toward the peppy vocals of Katy Perry tracks during your workouts, you might have a different opinion.

As every day headphones, we wish there was a little extra clarity in the mid-range audio, but we’re picky. It depends on your music, tastes, and the seal the eartips make in your ear.

not great for running
I had these for running and despite the awesome sound quality, didn't keep them for more than a week. The earbuds don't stay put and feel super annoying in the ear.
