Summary: A friend suggested I try foam tips when I complained about these tips falling out. Comply foam tips from Radio Shack and various other foams (Shure foams for E2c) fit fine and make these awesome earphones.
Pros: Good clarity for price,, good neutral bass,, good isolation (especially with foams), and, case for storage.
Cons: Beautiful silicone tips from Apple don't stay in., Newer Apple in-ears have remote, mic, and tips that work out of the box., Stick out of ears at weird angle.
Summary: The whole product just oozes quality. Solid construction, nice packaging, 3 different sizes for the very soft and comfy rubber caps. It even comes with replacement filters (the tiny wire mesh behind the ear-caps).
Pros: In-ear headphones are tricky business. Often times, people don't understand how to properly wear them. And now that portable devices are so prolific, in-ear headphones have flooded the market will all levels of quality. These are not the best I have ever heard, but they are close. They are also o...
Cons: A bit expensive. Cable is a bit shorter than other headphones I have owned.
Summary: Although these are not billed as "noise cancelling," they do a pretty good job of it. I travel weekly and have used them consistently for laptop movie viewing, iPod/iPhone music listening, as well as taking calls. They fit great, don't fall out, and do not hurt my ears like earbuds.
Pros: Snug fit, superior sound, and a little more affordable than the $130-$200 other name brands. Works with iPhone and iPhone 3G to play/pause and answer/hangup calls.
Cons: Volume control does not work on iPhones (as already known). Hopefully Apple will update iPhone firmware to allow this.
Excerpt: Good earphones with amazing sound which you would expect from a pair of headphones! I had to buy these after my pair of MIE2i packed in after 2 years of everyday use! but it was my fault as to why they broke.
Summary: You get what you pay for and that is why it gets 4*. They allow you to have a conversation on your phone that's it, nothing more. They have lasted a month and still going. You want headphones for music don't by these, you want a hi end phone mic kit, don't buy these.
Summary: I've always struggled with In-Ear headphones - mainly getting a comfortable fit. These are the best I've had so far - the three different buds included cover most bases. The right one is still not great, but I suspect that's my ear!
