Summary: I would say these are excellent value for money. They are a tad too heavy on the base for me, as I want them in order to listen to talking books, but that probably makes them acceptable to the majority.
Summary: I bought these to replace some other earphones which packed up after a few months. The sound quality is excellent for the money - I'm hearing stuff I was missing with my phone-supplied cables and the RHAs I previously had. The cable seems strong and has a right angle entry which I prefer.
