Summary: Awful. Look nice and can easily be differentiated from other in-ears, but the sound quality is DIRE. Yes, audio is very much subjective, but just look at the spec - a frequency range of 1k!! No highs or lows - just mids. Avoid if you care about what you listen to. There's always a reason that Richer Sounds stock things - they're either old models or not very good. Richer Sounds have lots of these.
Summary: Ordered two pairs of these instead of one, by mistake. The first set had a crackling sound because of a poor connection at the headphone socket on the device, so I tried the second pair which had exactly the same problem. Sound was excellent until you accidentally moved the headphone plug, when it crackled and lost connection. I tried with an ipod, ipad and two iphones and the connection was terrible with all of them for both pairs.
Summary: I tried three different sizes of ear buds, none of them comfortable. And the sound quality is so tinny - there's no bass and not much midrange either. I bought a set at an airport on my way somewhere and threw away the receipt and packaging - so they're just going to go in the bin.
Noisy cord and weak sound, but great for camouflage

Summary: First review, but these earphones were just too absurd to not warn about. The cable might not tangle, but it is completely uninsulated that any movement sounds like a heartbeat in a stethoscope. I tried to hold a Skype call with them, but the sound of the cable rubbing against my chin as I spoke made Skype announce there was a lot of background noise - as if I needed it in writing to know that!?
Summary: Unfortunately these earphones didn't fit my ears at all - and none of the bud sizes helped the situation. They fell out straightaway - possibly due to my small ears or maybe because of the weight of the cord. These were expensive, but fortunately at least with amazon's great return system I was able to swap them for another pair.
