BOTTOM LINE

I do most of my exercising inside where I need an earphone that delivers as much isolation as possible. For my purposes the Medis are the wrong earphone. But if I ever needed an earphone to go for a run, jump on a bike, or take a long walk, the Medis would be the first earphone I’d grab on my way out the door.
