Summary: I've spent upwards of $50.00 on headphones at local retailers for use while lifting. These are better than any set I've ever bought before, and at half the cost they are a steal. They are that good.
Pros: These are great at blocking external noise and I think because of that the bass response is great. They are snug in the ear and I don't feel like they will fall out at all. They come with 4 different size plugs, so the variety of fits is more than most.
Cons: The rubber that is used is a bit tacky, ie sticky, in that it collects dust easily. Not a deal breaker, but I would keep them in the case and not in a pocket or loose in a bag as they will look pretty unpleasant with pocket lint.

Pros: Great price, comfortable, gold plated, carrying case
Summary: Before I was disabled I was a professional DJ. I've listened to my fair share of headphones, good, bad and otherwise. These are a fantastic stepping stone into the world of audiophiles for those on a budget. Combine these with 320k MP3 or uncompressed AAC/FLAC/etc, close your eyes, and drift away.
Pros: Breathtaking sound. The separation, presence and clarity are simply astounding. These buds will hold their own against headphones costing 5 to 10 times as much, literally. When properly fit the bass was accurate and responsive. I used the foam insert and found the fit, comfort and sound blocking ...
Cons: For twenty bucks, there are *no* cons. None.
Summary: I'll keep buying these as long as they keep making them.
Pros: I bought these from a different retailer 3yrs ago. They fit perfectly and sound good. FYI, not an audiophile so I don't know how "perfectly" they reproduce sound, but all I know is my music, podcasts, and audio books sound great. My wife tried mine out for a week and loved them. Unfortunately the...
