Excerpt: the moment I put them on it was easy to identify the poor sound qulity...thought the sound would by much much better for the money. I had klipsh which were so much better and my iphone ear pods are much better too,by far.
Excerpt: I use earbuds to workout,hike,bike etc....these are so tinny, it makes me suspect that they are defective and I am considering sending them back when I find the time...Absolutley no base or midrange
Summary: The sound production is very tinny, despite good equipment that I have, very disappointing for classical music or human voice, puzzled that others were so satisfied. This purchase was a mistake.
Summary: To give these headphone credit, the sound quality and noise insulation are pretty good, but what does any of that matter when the product is so poorly made that it ceases to work after a few uses?
Summary: I got these as a replacement for my broken AKG Q350's (An AMAZING pair of earphones but werent in stock when I wanted them). I was really disappointed - everything sounded really squeeky regardless of the EQ setting on my iPod, and the bass was practically non-existent!
Summary: Bought these on the strength of previously having owned an old set of Etymotics. the old set fitted snugly deep within the ear canal and gave a good sound. These came with an array of different plugs.
Warning: If you love etymotic er4p or er6i you will HATE these.

Summary: I have and adore etymotic er4p and er4s. I had and semi-adored the slightly cheaper er6i too. Unfortunately my er6i's met with an accident and when i went to find another pair i discovered they were discontinued and that etymotic had replaced them in their range with these, the mc5's.
