Horrible feeback through cable

Christopher O., Newegg
29 July 2009
  • Pros: Sound quality is ok.
  • Cons: The feedback through the cable is horrendous. Unless you NEVER move your head..you will be ok. But any time the headphone cable moves...it is echoed in your ear. I threw mine away.

Great Isolating and sound

Anonymous, Newegg
5 July 2009
  • Summary: Really nice, bought this before the price went up and glad I did. Very comfy. Wearable for a very long amount of time. Better then the Apple's stocked earbuds, you can hear a difference in sound from Apple's and these. Give these a try if you can.
  • Pros: Great isolating, sound is remarkable. Comes with a nice bag for it. Comfy.
  • Cons: Eh, like people say, it makes this little sound when it hits something, bad for jogging if you have the wire moving everywhere, keep it tucked until your shirt or jacket, stops it from moving too much. Not really a con for me since I wear underarmor (Thermal shirts) when I run so it doesn't reall...

  • Summary: I bought these headphones to replace Sony Fontopia headphones that were close to 3.5 years old. The tips on those were constantly falling off and getting dirty (thinking back on it... I doubt shoving those into my ear canal was a wise decision, but you can't very well ride the bus without music!).
  • Pros: Pretty good sound, does a good job at canceling noise, though not superb. Rubbery tips are stable and stay on.
  • Cons: Y-style headphones (not around neck style) offer less stability.

Great earphones.

  • Summary: Best when used in a still position. I am using them while coding and it is not perfect.
  • Pros: Great quality. Nice to have 3 different size earbuds. Looks great.
  • Cons: I think this is going to be common to all Earphones of this type. There is an audible thump whenever the wire touches just about anything.

Broke

Anonymous, Newegg
5 June 2009
  • Summary: I owned this for about 2.5 months. They worked great, but the right earphone randomly started to die. It kept cutting in and out quickly. Earbuds and canal headphones are some of the worst I have ever purchased.
  • Pros: Great sound quality.
  • Cons: None, until one earphone stopped working.

  • Summary: Overall, these are the best earbuds I've owned so far. The sound crispness was better than I expected. The cable uses a Y-split rather than the wrap-around style that I've seen with some other earbuds. Personally I prefer this but others may not.
  • Pros: I already owned a pair of the EP-630s and bought these so I could leave one with my iPod and the other with my laptop. I have to say the sound quality is noticeably better with these, and I already liked the 630s. I listened to several songs with each pair and realized that I was hearing highs of...
  • Cons: For whatever reason, these seem a little less effective at noise isolation than the 630s. Don't get me wrong; they still do a decent job, but I'll probably be using the 630s on any flights.

Erg...

  • Summary: I bought the EP - 630's from this site about 6 months ago. They are amazing. They were the best head phones i have ever had, until about 2 weeks ago. The left ear bud became very quiet, and the right earbud is slowly dying also.
  • Pros: See Other thoughts.
  • Cons: See other Thoughts.

Better than Bos3

  • Summary: The 2nd best buds are the original Apple in-canal ear buds that have been discontinued. These Creative buds have better bass and just as good highs.
  • Pros: For the money these are the best ear buds I have ever owned.
  • Cons: none

Comfortable

Anonymous, Newegg
27 April 2009
  • Summary: I have found these in-the-ear earphones to be a *huge* upgrade to the iPod stock headphones. They are much more comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time such as in an airplane/train/car rides listening to audiobooks and what not. Also the sound quality is superior to the stocks.
  • Pros: Extremely Comfortable compared to iPod stock headphones. Excellent Bass. The S's are less sharp and penetrating than the iPod stock headphones. Comes with different size buds which was a must because I have small ears and needed the small size to fit in my ear canal.
  • Cons: Longer cord than the iPod stock (may not be a con for all but I have to twist the cord around my iPod a couple of times which in turn the cord becomes twisted). Also the cord is thinner than the iPod stock which again makes it more susceptible to twists.
