Summary: I bought a pair of these back in December 2011. I just lost them the other week and Im back on the this site ordering another pair. They have been the best headphones I have ever purchased. I have gone through JVC, Sony, Bose, Skullcandy and these are by far the best bang for buck. I am often in the gym everyday either weightlifting or running and these have held up awesome. The sound quality is excellent and they have the perfect treble/bass ratio.
Summary: I bought these headphones as a replacement for another brand, the night before taking a long bus ride. Acoustic stuff sounded great, really rich middle-ground and crisp treble, etc. but I was disappointed in the lack of bass while listening on my iPod and no amount of EQ tweaking could resolve it. Buyers remorse. However, when I got them home and used them on my laptop, the sound was outstanding. Deep and full bass notes to accompany the already good mid-to-high end.
Excerpt: Extremely clear spectrum. Awesome bass devoid of overpowering the clear mids and really crisp highs.Silicon suggestions make a excellent seal for me, does an exceptional job of blocking out ambient noise and allows for low volume listening (saves the ear drums!). They keep in spot and don't move in or out. I would hugely suggest these over Bose. Haven't encountered any yet if any personally.
Summary: Got these to replace my missing Shure se110's that went missing. Sounded a bit on the thin side at first but, after the break-in period they really started to shine! Good bass but not overwhelming. Excellent mids and highs. Very accurate sound with good soundstage. In my opinion these are probably one of the best buds out there. I have since found my se110's and tried them to compare then put them away for emergency use only!
Summary: These iem's deliver an accurate sound - the highs are well balanced with the mids. However, the lowend could use a bit more emphasis. Don't expect big bass from these. Considering these are marketed as 'rugged' iem's...you'll here nothing below the 80hz band when doing anything relatively physical.
Summary: I purchased these as replacements for when I'm out on my bike. I find they stay in better than normal ones. The sound quality is brilliant but I have found them uncomfortable to wear for long periods.
Summary: This is the 3rd pair I've got through..no qualms about their quality when they work, but this is the third time that one of the heads has stopped working within 9 months of use. I use them everyday but it's not like I live in a place with extreme weather or anything else which could explain this..just seems like they are not built to last. I'm not going for Klipsch again..
Excerpt: Excellent sound excellent, fantastic seal, durable. none for me. Right after reading all the evaluations complaining about a thing or one more. I have employed these for five-six months now, the cord is thin but not weak. I carry it about with me to the gym, work, etc. I have yanked on it hard with weights on accident, i kept in my jean pockets for hours at time. They are as tough as other earbuds.2nd of all, I do not have any fuzzy sounds at low volume.
