I like this headset in general but lawn mowing (and vacuuming) is exactly when I don't use it. Its open earbud design lack the sealing needed to block out the huge noise...

Have one. Sound quality is superb for an open earbud. Never comes off during workout or running. Only thing to watch out is the earbud size. It's one-size and a little too big for me, which makes my ears hurt after a long time of wearing.

You're correct. My wife has the lime green one from Amazon and I have this sale's black/grey one from Costco. Both are the same item.

The one the other guy linked for $130 on Amazon...those appear to be a newer waterproof model. Thee ones in this sale are merely sweat resistant.

My wife and I both love them, though I'd caution people with smaller ear "vestibules". The "bud" part is about 5/8" diameter, including the rubber cover, so I figure it's probably too large for quite a few people.

Otherwise, they're very lightweight. The battery lasts longer than it has a right to. The bluetooth connection is solid, working two rooms away in my home from my Galaxy S7. They charge via MicroUSB, the port for which is hidden behind a little plastic trap door that's easy to use. The sound quality is better than I imagined it would be...but the bass, of course, is less than I desire. I'm no audiophile, but there have been a few times I marveled at how crisp they sounded in a few "smooth" songs.

My biggest gripe would be the fixed angle and grippy texture of the back-strap. Sometimes it'll catch on a shirt/coat collar if I'm using them in normal dress. It's not a big deal, but more of a discomfort when the buds tug a bit in your ear, when this happens.

How is it for the chest day? Will it interfere with your head when you are doing bench press?

Just a little. Not a big deal at all. Well worth the money.

I suppose it could be different for everyone but they never bother me at all on bench etc.

Great headphones. I use them while running. Very comfortable. The battery lasts 5-7 hours for me. Would highly recommend them, especially at this price.

How "open" are these? My gym likes to blast music. Apple earbuds are completely unusable because of how much noise they let in.
