Poor durability, good sound quality

Summary: Pros: - Good sound quality (for price) - Much more comfortable than "earpods" Cons: - Very fragile. I'm on my 6th pair (seriously!) Fortunately Apple has replaced my for free every time they've broken, but it's annoying to go into the store so frequently to have them replaced.
Summary: I like the sound of the earbuds. The frequency is very balanced very close to the professional studio monitors I use. If you are like the majority of people who like a loud bass, these are not your choice. If you look for a balanced and accurate sound, these are perfect. While the sound is very good, the design is pretty bad.
Summary: These are good-sounding 'phones at a very low price. They seem to have a split personality, however. The are more like ear buds trying to be canalphones. The tips are not well designed for they will fall out even with a little wear time. Just a hint of body warmth and moisture will quickly cause them to slip out. It is impossible to get a good seal without scrubbing the tips and washing out your ears. Even then, it won't last long.
Pros: Dual drivers, low cost, cord length is perfect
Summary: Love the clarity and can really pick up little sounds and whispers i haven't hear before. Found that very nice. The build is great, but for the value these headphones have the following issues: - earbud tips fall off too easily - little to no bass in sound (changing EQ settings makes the bass very muddy) - volume is somewhat limited Overall i really love the clarity and should fit certain people that work with sound and want that clarity, but the lack of bass was my...
Summary: I purposely upgraded from the standard ear buds to the high-end model, fully expecting a dramatic improvement in sound and comfort. To be fair, these are noticeably more comfortable than the standard issue model, allowing extended usage without wearer fatigue, common with the lesser model. Unfortunately, the improvement in audio is only marginally better, and specifically limited to high frequencies.
Summary: I had high hopes for these headphones. In particular, the idea of two drivers appealed to me. The highs and mids on the headphonee are good. The bass, however, is lacking any form of substance. I recommend that you pass on these.
