Here is what the website at auria.com [HERE] says about the Exceed Earphones:

* Mesh bag
* Different sizes of ECO (Ear Canal Opening) rings to help you achieve the perfect fit
* A set of graphic Personalizers that you can swap out to add some fun to the earphones.
The ECO rings are pretty cool and have little circles on them to indicate the different sizes. I found them to be really easy to switch out. But, I actually found that the ones that were originally on the earphones worked the best for me.
Another interesting feature is the InLine control button. While I think it's a great idea in theory, I am used to just hitting the buttons on my shuffle and found myself not really using the button. However, I can see how it would be a nice feature if you used it with your phone.
Now, you all know that I'm not up to running long distances (YET), but I was able to try these out in several runs ranging from 30-45minutes. The first thing I did was switch out the Personalizers. I thought the running girl image was a lot more fun than solid black. Don't you think?
So, how did they work??
I thought they were awesome! They are really easy to insert and did not move during my entire run. Because they are quite bigger than my other earphones I thought they would feel heavy, but they didn't. In fact, they are light weight and after awhile I didn't even feel them in my ears.
Another nice thing about these earphones is that they allow you to hear the ambient noise around you, which is a must for anyone running by themselves. What I liked was that I was able to run on my treadmill in my workout room and still hear my boys playing in the other room. :)
So, if you think you might want to try these earphones, you're in luck! The awesome people of Auria were kind enough to offer a free pair to one of you! Woohoo!
