Summary: I have just bought a set of these to replace my old Creative EP630i earphones and was in desperate need of a volume control along with the mic. I have long been a fan of Creative earphones for their build, clarity and price and these really do live up to that great name. These are LOUD headphones, I've not come across anything this powerful before but they're also great at really low level sounds and don't need to be pushed to deliver a great sound.
Good sound quality/good price but very fragile and not suitable for sports/outdoor activities

Summary: It's a very good headphone upgraded version from 630i with volume control. However I accidentally dropped it on the fitness floor (covered with mat) and after that it's broken. The connector plugged into my iPhone is slightly bent and as a result... no sound at all. So.. it's a very very delicate headphone. Use it with care and don't use it for any kind of sports/outdoor activities.
Summary: You'd think creative would mean quality but that seems to have changed in recent years. I have a pair of earphones half the price of these that fit better, don't fall out when running, have more bass and better clarity. Really these are not worth the price.
Summary: Here's the thing. I previously bought some earphones with mic somewhere-or-other on special offer, and they were advertised as being for iPhone. Nonetheless they worked on my Android phone, both to listen to music and to make calls. So when these came up on Vine, I gave them a go. Unfortunately the microphone really does only work for Apple devices- if you try to use it with Android, you can't hear the other person and they can't hear you.
Summary: These headphones are easy to use and are of a good quality. I listened to the same song using these and my usual Sony in-ear headphones, and found the Creative ones to be crisper and clearer, although the Sony ones had a broader range. They are snug and comfy, due to the fact that they come with three sets of different-sized ear pieces. The controls are easy to use too.
Summary: With the wealth of options out there, and with Apple releasing their own half decent offerings with the iPhone 5, this Creative HS-660i2 pair of Earphones aren't any good at all, and the bottom line is, AVOID and look elsewhere. My reasoning is explained below. BUILD Well, firstly, the look, well, they look, cheap. Something which you can pick up for a few quid here. If they were priced at less than half the amount they'd be merely ok for the price.
Summary: I first tried these out on my Nokia C5 and they work perfectly, then used them on my mp4 player and was very pleased with the sound quality, even at low level. They fit into my ears perfectly without the need for buds although 2 sets are supplied. One little niggle is the volume control on the headphones is set quite high making it tricky to adjust, they would be better if placed lower where it could be seen clearly.
Summary: First, something the product description does not make clear: these Creative HS-660i2 headphones have a standard 3.5mm 4-pole jack plug that will work with many modern phones, not just Apples. Their i-specific feature is that the music control function is designed to work with Apple's interface. So you can probably plug them into your HTC or whatever and they will work just fine as a mobile headset, but without music remote control other than volume.
Summary: These earphones sit snugly in the ear with their cushioned, mold-able buds. A mini-control on the cable allows you to alter the volume,and pause the music to take calls on your i-phone, or just pause it if it's an i-pod or pad. The sound quality is above what I'm used to on the earphones I own. The range seems good, a deep and resonant sound.
