Summary: Atomic Floyd SuperDarts +Remote Headphones I am an audiophile, and listen more or less exclusively to classical music. My main listening system is high end, and my last pair of ear-phones were etymotic i6's. I used these for 6 or 7 years, but alas one of the channels died last month.
Summary: I use these headphones with my ipod and found them to be very good. They are heavier than most, having steel cups, but this is not problem. Their abilities in terms of noise cancelling are more of a mixed blessing. I found when travelling on a bus that the noise cancelling was excellent, in a noisier environment, ie on the street, they were less effective, but it is a minor quibble. Where they really score is in the sound quality.
Summary: This is a great-sounding set of 'phones, with a couple of minor flaws. The build quality is fantastic - even the box they come in is pretty impressive. The 'phones themselves are very solid and quite weighty - at first worringly so, given they are in-ear, but in fact they stay locked firmly in your lugs and you hardly notice you're wearing them, which is how it should be. And they're shiny enough that you are unlikely to misplace them...
Summary: These are fabulous looking headphones with all the accessories that you would need to go with. They come with different set of ear-pads so you can chose those which fit you the best. Do try every size as one of that will feel right and sound good. They are obviously deep ear canal headphones so you have to push them right in. If you are not used to this, then you will find them uncomfortable to begin with but soon get used to them, hopefully.
Summary: The earphones arrive superbly well packaged, as you would expect from a premium product. I personally would have liked to see some kind of hard plastic clamshell case provided to protect earphones and accessories in transport. What is provided is a flexible, rubberised case which resembles a large black 'Smartie' about the size of the palm of your hand with a slit in one side.
Summary: I've played just about everything through these headphones and my strongest positive comment would be that the sound is noticeably clearer, brighter, with no distortion in and around the high notes and no static in the background. Music with a definitive heavy beat plays well with a noticeably smooth percussion, you can hear the instruments rather than just a mechanical "thump, thump, thump".
Outstanding sound - but only with replacement eartips

Summary: I read loads of reviews, liked what I read, bought them, opened the (excellent) packaging, took out the (well-made and designed) phones, fitted the supplied tips, put them in my ears and .... they fell straight out. Tried the other tip sizes, same problem. These phones are heavy and the left side carries the extra weight of the (very solid) control unit. They need to be a *very* good fit in your ears to stay in place.
Summary: after purchasing these and a set of monster turbine pros, with alot of listening and comparing the superdarts were a lot better all round sound quality. The only downside with these headphones is the earbuds. The atomic floyds come with three different sizes, all which fall out of my ears when moving as they have some weight to them too. The monsters came with about 20 different types but again, i couldnt really find a pair that fitted correctly! Maybe its my ears??
