Summary: This review is written from the perspective of the average listener, one who wouldn't have a portable amp and would more than likely use these with their iPod.
Out of the various IEMs I've tried out, these were definitely packaged the best.
Pros: Comfort, Audio Experience, Packaging, Remote/Mic, Detachable Metal Filters
Summary: Included earbuds were horrible for me. Volume adjustment died and unit had to be replaced by apple (good customer service). I never had a good seal so can't really comment to much on quality of sound, except I don't feel like they blew me away.
Apple’s stock earbuds that have been shipped with every iPod since its inception are quite possibly the most prolific and widely distributed tech accessory of all time. It’s hard to go anywhere without seeing a pair of these things dangling from someone’s ears.
Pros: Inexpensive, Exceptional clarity/transparency for the price, Fairly well balanced
Cons: Low end lacks oomph, Sound can be a tad thin,
Summary: These are the best in-ear style headphones I have ever owned. Sound quality and comfort are exceptional. Only problem Ive found after a year is the mesh screens becoming blocked/clogged. This is easily fixed with a can of dust off. Overall great headphones.
Very good detail, separation, bass clean but a bit lacking

Summary: These are the most detailed in ears I have ever purchased. Treble: Very detailed, forward, airy sounding. Verges on harshness, but just barely passes for silkiness. Makes voices sound very emotional. Midrange: Not overly pronounced, but very well separated.
Good insulation and sound, nice looking package, and incredible support

Summary: Im not a huge audiophile but these sound great to me and block out most of the noise of a crowded subway. I also find them really comfortable and they never fall out even when skateboarding. Some will smaller ears might have trouble though. The best part is Apple's amazing support.
Summary: A lot of people seem to complain about the bass performance of these headphones saying its not even there. Bass is there, albeit being a tight, controlled bass sound. If you're a bass junkie, stay far away from these. On another note, the mids and Highs are pretty darn good.
Summary: My first impression of these were they sounded poor, lack of bottom end bass. Then I pushed them in a little more and then I had a nice even response from them. My only critic is that the cable is noisy when it moves (when walking, turning your head) unlike the standard ear buds.
Summary: These head phones are pretty good bit overpriced. Had three pairs of these waiting for my fourth set. If your not getting the bass maybe change the size of the buds it's napped to me before the sound is totally different without the right size buds on
Summary: I was also initially disappointed with these headphones and shocked at the lack of depth and bass. I then experimented with the different sized buds and pushed them in enough to form a complete seal. The difference was awesome. All of a sudden I got what I expected for £65.00!
