Our Verdict

They might be cheap but these on-ear 'phones aren't cheerful

For

  • Less prone to tangling, cheap price

Against

  • Thin sounding, reluctance to sit on ear

These cheap-and-cheerful sports 'phones boast magnetic earbuds – so they're slightly less tangle-prone – plus are moisture-resistant if you suffer from excessive ear-sweat!

The Sennheiser MX70s also claim to be a secure fit, but we found that far from true – they're on-ear rather than in-ear buds, so they both fall out too easily, plus fail to deliver the bass of deeper-digging rivals.

That leads to a lean, tiresome performance. Their CX300 siblings sound much better for the same sort of money.
