Summary: Had these for a month and I thought I would write a review on them, since there isn't much info on them other than ClieOS' great review . I will try to be quick and to the point.
Starting off with comfort and fit, these have pretty small housings so it is easy and highly recommended to insert them deep. I like to insert very deep, almost etymotic deep to get the best sound. I don't like using the stock tips though.
Pros: Good balanced sound, comfy, look great
Cons: Cable is iffy, stock tips not ideal (for my ears)
Summary: Comfort and Fit: This pair is very comfortable in the sense that their presence in your ears won't be very noticeable. I fell asleep a few times while listening to music through these earphones, so thats all I can say about them. For fit however, I had to use the largest size of earbuds to fit it into my ears. Isolation isn't very good though because background noise can still be heard even when playing music.
Summary: wonderful sound quality, comfortable form fitting, but.... will Creative EVER design a decent plug for their earphones? Apparently not, the cable sheathing failed, defying attempts to reinsert it or use adhesives the plug is now resplendent with gaffa tape.
Summary: Creative seems to be a little hit and miss,but when they get it right the product is world class.These are very good aurally and fussy as I am I cannot fault the listening experience.Build,look and feel are all top notch and they appear after several months of daily travel to be well made.
Summary: I have waited a while before I did this review so as I could really give these a "true" rating. I like to have music very loud in the phones and these really deliver on bass, and overall sound reproduction without distorting even on flat out from my Creative mp3. Noise isolation - no problem, they come with different size buds so you can get a nice snug fit.
Summary: These headphones are really amazing. The sound quality is very good and the noise isolation is very good considering they are earphones. The only deffect in my opinion is that they are easy to break.
Summary: I had some very old creative labs earphones (circa 2005) that I replaced with this, and must say I'm impressed. The noise cancellation is very good. As someone else mentioned, they don't completely block out all other sound, but they block out enough for me to not hear a quiet conversation going on next to me. Coming from earphones that just "blocked" other sound, these are a massive step up.
Summary: First things first, a couple of things about me. Firstly, I happen to have very small ears and I know from past experience with in-ear headphones that this can be a problem when it comes to getting these things to fit properly. Secondly, I have super sensitive hearing and therefore I am probably listening to music through these at half the volume (if that!) that most people will use. With those things in mind, on with the review... ..
