Default Help choosing between AKG K326 and Sennheiser MX 685

Hi there!
Because I'm going to the gym in the next mouth, I'm searching for some comfortable earphones for my workout.
I'm from Portugal and I've found two interesting models in sale. I can get the AKG K326 for 24 (32USD) and the Sennheiser MX 685 for 34 (45USD).

Some info about the models:
AKG K326: http://eu.akg.com/tl_files/catalog//...0(English).pdf
Sennheiser MX 685: Sennheiser MX 685 SPORTS - Sport Headphones Earphones - water and sweat resistant - for running, jogging, workouts, gym, aerobic

I want to know which one as the best sound quality. That's almost all I care about :D

So if you guys could help me out, I would appreciate ;)

Thanks, Cristiano Rodrigues.

My System Specs


Sports headphones usually aren't any good, even when it's a good headphone manufacturer making them.

If you don't mind clip-ons that are open ear, the Koss KSC75's are the way to go.

If you must pick one between the two I would just base your choice on the respective manufacturer's house sounds. (ie. if you like a warmer sound go with Sennheiser)
