Pros: let me be one person to praise these lovely in-ear buds,,have been living with them for more then an year..very sturdy,amazing balance sound,fit supreme..can easily wear them for 5-6hours straight without even lil discomfort
Cons: well if i have to write something,,maybe could have been more attractive..
Summary: There are a LOT of in-ear phones in this price range. Out of probably hundreds of models from many brands, it's unlikely you will find more than a few pairs that sound as good as these do. For all around superior sound quality, these are an excellent choice. If you are the "I must have super bass" type, there are others with better, deeper bass. But for accuracy and quality, you likely won't beat these out.
Pros: -OK aesthetics -Nice carrying tin with two extra ear piece sizes Handy tool for cleaning the ear wax out of the ear piece canal. (Trust me, you will probably need to use this several times if you use these phones a lot) -Sound quality is excellent. Very good good highs, and somehow doesn't dull out the mids which most treble-intense phones do. Bass seems realistic, bot too boomy, not too light. The bass hits kind of tight if you know what I mean. Good for fast beats l...
Cons: I feel like the all plastic design and very thin non-braided cable makes these phones feel cheap. To back that up, my pair is currently scrapped because the right ear went out slowly. I had to twist and turn the cable and tape it in a certain position to get it to work for the last year or so. I've had them for 3ish year though. So I guess that's not too bad of a run for constant use. I often worked out with them on and tugged the cables a lot on accident. So I was a ...
Summary: I don't know who is calling these a decent set of headphones but maybe they think that price must indicate quality. In this case, it does not. Better sound quality can be found on earbuds that are half the price. If you are considering buying these based on the editor's rating please don't, you will be extremely disappointed.
Pros: Come with a fancy tin case, Thats it.
Cons: Very uncomfortable, sound quality is not that great for $80 headphones. Bass is not rich, highs are too crisp and tinny, mids are radio-like, cannot discern instruments and notes it sounds like all instruments at once.
Great headphones especially at this amazing discounted price.

Pros: If you are an audiophile and want to get the most bang for your buck get these now!! These are pretty amazing. There is a reason why a lot of forums and sites(cnet) recommends them. They are music to my ear so to speak.
Summary: overall these are great sounding earbuds. i gave them four egss due to issues getting the app to work properly and the tweaky button control.
Pros: -Deep bass response -Comfortable to wear -integration to take calls as well as listen to music -good noise isolation from oval ear buds
Cons: -flat, tinny treble and mids -control app didnt see google music as my default player to select to control (reinstalling google music fixed this) -the button control is a bit tweaky - sometimes does not pick up double/triple clicks or reads it as a volume boost and turns up volume ALL THE WAY!
Summary: All in all, I couldn't have asked for more from these earbuds. I've never used anything about stock-level earbuds before, but after using these, I'll never be able to go back. The sound quality of the S4i blows the iPhone's stock headphones out of the water, particularly in its fullness. Listening to these sounds much more like you're listening a good set of speakers than it does to any other headphones I've used.
Pros: Comfortable fit with a variety of earpieces, simple controls, and amazing sound quality.
Cons: The wire has a tendency to twist, so the buttons are rarely facing the right direction.
Summary: Bottom line, these are the best headphones of any kind (in-ear/around ear/on ear) that I've ever owned. The sound is incredibly clear and rich. They're comfortable enough for you to forget you have them in. I'm a fan of bass, and these headphones deliver a good amount of it. It's not the best I've heard - that distinction goes to Plantronics' Backbeat 216 - but enough for me to be satisfied with it.
