Summary: Owned these for about 8 months now and I have to say I am pleased. I truly think these are the best IEM's under $50. Bass is a strong point in these IEM's, and treble and mids are presented good as well. Highs though, are a bit muddy-ed up by the bass and treble, but they aren't completely gone. These have good sound quality over all for the price, which was about $30 when I purchased mine.
Summary: Of course they aren't really good sound, just good for the price. If you're used to expensive headphones, don't bother buying.
Pros: They sound good for the price. They cancel noise pretty well, there's a bit of white noise to help cancel noise. The bass isn't as bad as I expected it to be, i put a bass test on it for laughs and it did a decent job.
Cons: They can't be compared to more expensive headphones, but they get the job done for the price.
Cons: Everyone complains about the cords on almost every earphone model and these are no exception ('cept they seem to have a shorter one which makes things even worse). To keep things nice and lightweight this is just something we'll have to live with. There are other earphones that are slightly lower in price that will outperform these. Ultimately it comes down to fit and features, which is always dictated by the end-user. The money they saved on the short cords didn't en...
Summary: Can't beat the deal at under twenty bucks with free shipping. However, if they bump up to above $30 again, I would step up to the next level and go with Shures or Sennheisers.
Pros: These sound pretty good overall but definitely benefit from a bass adjustment since by default they are a bit too low. Also, these fit very well once you figure out what size cushions are right for you. The 3 size choices are great and should accommodate most ears. Not painful like some other models and stay in no problem, even while running or shooting hoops.<p> The noise canceling is very good for the price ($18+FS) but not nearly as good as the higher end Shure (SE...
Cons: Thin, flimsy cord that doesn't instill confidence but has held up so far.<p> I mostly use these for working and/or exercising outdoors. Although they stay in well, they tend to create a howling effect with the slightest wind. If the wind is at all strong, it sounds like you're in a cave fending off a tornado. I have to turn the volume up to compensate and just deal with it, but it takes some getting used to. This makes it tougher to run, ride a bike, or play any sport...
Summary: Why ship with DHL from the TN warehouse. I must be spoiled as CA shipments take a day or two with UPS but this took 8 days to arrive. DHL sends to USPS and then they send? That's really odd..why not just use USPS to speed it up. Their website tracking is terrible too and i even tried USPS tracking and both hadn't updated since 4 days ago. (got it today) I really prefer UPS and FedEx but anyway, still worth the wait I guess.
Pros: Price (bought 2!), Canal fitting and very comfortable in the ear. Sound is pretty good, a def upgrade from my ipod ones that came with it. Iv had Bose and these sound just as good. I know there are better products then Bose, but nowhere near this price point. 3 different ear size pieces for the best fit. make sure you jam them in your ear for best sound.
Pros: I bought these for use in a full face motorcycle helmet. Someone in an earlier review said the wires are too thin. Well they hold up great with the punishment of over the road motorcycle riding. Great sound. I use them on a ZEN.
Cons: When I take the helmet off they always get caught and pull out of the ear. I guess that's to be expected.
