Excerpt: I have long been skeptical of in-ear headphone, finding that the fit it inconsistent, uncomfortable, etc. Having long owned and loved Grado over-the-ear headphones for my home stereo, I thought I'd give these a try because I've wandering in the jungle of unsatisfying competitive products for years. THESE ARE GREAT. Love the fit, love the sound, and I'm hearing my music on my ipod better than ever. I would buy these again without hesitation.

Conclusion: I have heard a pair of the grado over the ears and i really did like them. but i am more of a On-the-Go type and rarely have time to truly sit down and just enjoy my music. These are perfect. crisp and define! Would recommend!!!
Summary: I have had many different earbuds for my journey into London each day and these have been as good as any, excellent sound quality equal to the Byerdynamic of the same price, these are also a What Hifi five start product so you are in safe hands.
Summary: Very happy we these ear phones so far. Price was the cheapest I could find and delivery was quick. Sound is very good. I have used Sennheiser's for many years but found that these kept breaking. Although these are dearer I have found the sound to be superior to the Sennheiser's, the main test is how long they will last.
Summary: I've had these just over a week. I listen for a couple of hours most days using earphones. This is the most I've paid for earphones. I have Grado experience from their headphones. Relying on my experience with SR60 and SR325 headphones from Grado which are very good, I decided to splash out a bit for these in ears. I'm not disappointed. I've been using the Sony in ears that came with my player. They are very good. But the Grados are better.
Summary: I listen to the majority of my music through Genelec studio monitors with a flat EQ. Sometimes I listen with Grado SR80 headphone. The Grado IGI are just perfect for my portable needs. They have a great balanced sound and I can hear perfectly everything in the mix from the high hats to the bass. The bass is tight and un-hyped, which may not suit users with untrained ears or those who are used to mega bass.
Summary: When i first got these i thought yeah not bad, pretty decent, then i read that you should leave them playing at quite high volume for a few hours. So i left them playing on shuffle while i was at work, now they have gone from pretty good to so good i hardly use any of my other in ear headphones.
