Summary: I know they're not 'noise canceling' but they do exactly what they are intended to do. They provide good, clean, uncolored audio. I wear them at the beach all day and they never hurt or feel uncomfortable. The music sound clean and I can still hear my surroundings. Plus, if my phone rings, I can just push the answer button, take my call and go back to enjoying my music. If there is one word to describe these, it is, simply, 'Bose'.
Summary: These particular earbuds are the best ive found. I have 3 different sets of bose earbuds. I have the ones like these without the inline buttons, i have the sport version and i have these. The sport version has a cord thats way too long and inline buttons are too far down. The plugin is straight also and it snags on things. If u run the line under your shirt, you have to pull the line up to get to the buttons. These have an angled plugin and it lays close to the phone.
Summary: I bought this pair because I lost my the last one. The first pair was the last generation and did not have the stay flanges that this pair has, but other than that, they are the same. I read most of the review before I bought my first pair, and again before I bought this replacement pair.
Summary: My first set I purchased a few years ago to listen to audio books on my iPhone and also allow me to place calls when I need my hands free. Greatest sound quality. I could no never go back to less quality. I just purchased another set for using with Google+ for video conferences at work on my iPad Air.
Summary: My Honey's Samsung G2 cover was muffling what he heard AND said. Personally, I found it to be quite annoying. I bought this for him and he loves it because it improves his listening quality from my phone. I love it because I hear him much more clearly even on my flip phone. I definitely would recommend it!
Pros: Definitely improves sound. Three different pieces help to fit comfortably in ears. Do not need to get mic closer to mouth, it picks up fine just hanging below chin.
Excerpt: Design is most comfortable headset I have ever used. Trade off is this is an "open air" design that does little to block out ambient noise. Bass is good, but can not compare to a sealed, closed type headphone. Use as a phone conversation headset is better than using the phone itself, bluetooth,or any other headset I have ever tried.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
