Excerpt: My first review had stated that these speakers had decent bass compared to my Denon's. However, yesterday (from respective of the review date), suddenly, I've noticed something astounding. Low end portion of the headphones seemed to have broken in after many hours of listening to variety of music plus over hundreds of hours of being on the phone.
Pros: Clear Signal, Connects Easily, Fits well in ear, Good Sound, Good Volume Control, Just Darn Good Headphone, Lightweight, Noise Cancellation
Excerpt: I just received these headphones today. First thing I noticed was that some reviews were not so quite accurate. For example, fit; it fits my ears perfectly and it blocks external noise as much as my study/exam ear plugs. Second, the frequency response specs are conservative meaning I hear all the details as the headphones advertised as 20Hz - 20KHz; these are advertised as 20-15KHz and it actually sounds better.This is my first $+ headphone and I am using Cowon Z2.
Pros: Clear Signal, Connects Easily, Fits well in ear, Good Sound, Lightweight, Noise Cancellation
First pair only worked one day, second pair lasted a whole month!!! JUNK!

Summary: I couldn't be more disappointed! First off they sound amazing and really do cancel out background noise. I play professional poker and have my ear buds in for 12 hours at a time and it's really mportant for them to be comfortable, sound great and cancel out all the noise of poker chips clanging at other tables. Another benefit is the price was very low. Now the bad part: the first pair I bought lasted ONE WHOLE DAY before the input completely fell apart!
Excerpt: Very good fidelity for music listening, combined with the functionality of a phone headset. Apparently the microphone works well, too, because people on the other end can always hear me clearly. These also save your hearing, once you get the hang of the sound isolating earbuds. With 20-30 db of sound blocked out, you can listen to music and still subject your ears to less sound pressure than they would encounter without the Etymotics.
Pros: Ambient Noise Isolation, Good Microphone, Music Fidelity
Excerpt: It is well built, I use it for my 40 minute Brooklyn to Manhattan bike commute, the first pair lasted about 3 years ( I lost them), the cable is quiet and doesn't tangle, it lasts longer than any other set I've ever owned, no bad contacts ever, so far, then there is the convenience of the mic, allows toy to control the volume and the sequence of the music or whatever program you're listening to.
Excerpt: Please read my experience with these because there are some important features you should always consider with headphones and ear buds. I use these in a noisy environment, with high powered vacs, steam cleaners and power tools running constantly and they do an exceptional job in isolating noise. This is important because if you have too much noise coming in, your natural tendency is to turn up the music louder which will damage your ears.
Pros: accessories - quality pouch several earbud covers, excellent noise isolation = lower volume levels, top warranty service
Excerpt: I liked these headphones so muchI just ordered my second pair to replace so on ear headphones I've used for travel. I intend to ultimately go to an audiologist to get fitted for custom buds. Note that these will NOT provide overpowering bass but for the true audiophile perform just fine.
Excerpt: ALMOST returned these buds after struggling initially, convinced I had a proper seal yet hearing little more than TIN. I mean low end in absentia - as in zero bass. I was shocked. Really? The reviews I'd read were overwhelmingly positive and while some pointed to these buds as being quite neutral I'm an advocate of neutrality and not looking for overpowering bass. But I DO want to experience the low end of spectrum and I spent much of the day seeking a replacement.
