Summary: I bought these to replace my beloved A-Jays four. I needed something with the integrated in-line ipod/iphone controls, but with a bit better audio-quality, and some that may not pop out as easily as the JAYS. These have a "secure loop" system which provides an adjustable cable loop that tucks into your upper ear, helping to keep the buds in place.
Pros: Excellent audio, Noise Isolation, and good looks!
Cons: Goofy "secure loop" system, hard to clean, awkward ipod/iphone controls, EXPENSIVE, and a tiny carry pouch.
Summary: I couldn't find any reviews and the guys at Futrueshop could not tell me if these would work with my Samsung Galaxy S4. I am using the S4 with Google Play music. The volume up and down do not work. The play and pause function does work and so does the answer call function. You can skip a song, but you can't use the three tap to go back a song. Holding the play button does take you to the "Hi Galaxy" speech function on the phone.
Summary: Overall pretty good sound. Frequency response is pretty flat except for the bass, which is a bit boomy and muddy for my taste. I like different genres of music, including rock, jazz, classical, and sometimes even metal. After breaking them in for 3 months, the bass hasn't changed much. The bass on my old Shure E2c is not as strong, but clearer and much more precise. I am going back to the E2c.
Summary: I got a pair of these babies a few days ago and they are PERFECT! But my only little irritation with them is how big the actual buds are. They are always falling out of my ears, even with those ear-wrap things in use. I'm going to take them back, but only because of the ear bud problem. It's really a shame that I will have to take them back.
Summary: for £150 i wanted these to tick every box for me, and while they do they are not outstanding for the money. everyone has commented on how fantastic the bass response is and i would have to disgree, while you can tell the bass is there it is the sharper high end sounds which win the war at volume. i bought these for running for a few reasons, 1. the loop would keep them in my ear, which they do very well. 2.
