Summary: Ratings are based on the current price and compared to other IEM. These can be had for as low as 20 dollars. The main problem I have with these IEM is the tinny highs. I just can't get used to that. I have very piculiar ears, and these are the first IEM that more or less stay in place.
Summary: These are the headphones I use for work and commuting. They're great value, the scores are low only because we're comparing with $2000+ headphones. These are better than the EX71s sound wise, but are very slightly less comfortable.
Summary: There popular earbuds are both inexpensive and offer a pleasing upgrade to iPod-style buds. Solid design and extreme portability make them even more appealing. - The EP 630 has a warm, fairly detailed sound, thanks to the soft rubber earpieces, which also offer good isolation.
Summary: Pros: -Great isolation (3 different fitment sizes) -Warm bass -Overall decent sound (see other reviews, they pretty much sum up what I think about the sound). Cons: -CABLE NOISE (!!!) -somewhat sharp 5-8khz region Comments: For the price, I think these phones are great.
Summary: The silicone fittings are changeable so you can choose the right size for your ears. Bad thing about that is that they tend to fall off now and then, especially if you keep them in your pocket. I've lost one piece so now I have 2 different sizes on my buds.
Pros: Pretty comfortable. I work 8-10 hours a day at data entry and I listen to this all day long without any irritation. They block outside noise pretty well, too. Good, because I don't have to listen to other people pecking on their keyboards and talking. Bad because I never hear the supervisor when ...
Cons: Although there is no short in the wires, the one earbud has some severe decrease in sound for some reason. Not sure why, but the left earbud is way louder than the right and seems to be gradually getting worse. No short in the wires and no distortion in the sound, it's just losing amplitude for s...
Summary: I bought these for a friend who wanted a cheap replacement for the stock iPod phones. I myself own a pair of Westone UM2 earphones that are simply amazing, these headphones cannot compare. If you really want quality buy something from Westone, Ultimate Ears, Futuresonics, or Shure.
Pros: Inexpensive, somewhat good isolation. Overall decent for the price.
Cons: Do not expect wonders from these headphones, the sound quality is below average and the microphonics are among the worst. According to the state of California some of the materials in them cause cancer!?
