I really enjoy these for when I am in the gym or exercising. They go over your ear, and rest inside the ear. They are decent in the sense that they do not allow a lot of noise in, so you don't have to keep them turned up very loud. They are also labeled on the ear buds so you know what side goes into what ear. The only thing with these is that they do require to be adjusted from time to time, as they start to slide out of your ear.
