There is always quite a debate about what works best when it comes to headphones for riding.
Earbuds, over the ear and helmet audio options all have their benefits, but I favour the first option as I like to be able to wear only one while riding, so I can still talk to people and hear what is going on around me. But what I have found with some is it can be hard to keep them in place, especially when you get sweaty.
The Skull Candy Fix aims to fix this problem with a sweat proof rubber ear piece. This may sound strange, but I found these headphones stay in really well, while with other earbuds if I was riding fast or jumping a lot the earbud come out, with these that never happened. The soft rubber is also very comfortable, even under a balaclava, hat and goggles.
The sound quality is OK, but to get the best sound you do have to push the earbud pretty far in and this really blocks off the sound. With both earbuds in like this the sound is pretty good, but it does block a lot of ambient noise.
So far I have been impressed by how well they have stayed in place; I think they are going to do really well in the summer on the bike too. The sound could be better, but if the earbuds fall out it does not matter how good they sound, so I can deal with it for how well they stay in place.
