Summary: At first I was quite disappointed with these. I felt that they were properly isolating the noise and thought I had the right size isolators on but decided to try the large size and wow, what a difference. The bass finally showed up and I was quite impressed.
Pros: Great response, incredible volume, crystal clear highs, strong lows
Cons: Rubber isolators feel kind of cheap and thin compared to many of my other earbuds and after wearing them for long periods of time at work get uncomfortable. Very bright and almost need an EQ to pull them into a more comfortable frequency response.
Summary: I will likely have to find a different pair of headphones. The only way I can stand to use these anymore is to sit motionless. Sorry. I have always loved Klipsch. But, I hate my headphones. I'm giving them 2 stars because they sound okay.
Pros: Okay sound.
Cons: The cords create sound when rubbed or bumped against any object such as clothing and chairs. This sound transfers along the cords to your ears. Even subtle movements such as the expansion of my chest from breathing creates noise that is much louder than the audio from my phone. The problem is the...
Summary: I bought these on sale at radio shack for $41. I could never see myself paying $80 for these. Don't get me wrong, these are nice ear buds, but that's all they will ever be. Don't buy any ear buds expecting them to be anything like over-ear headphones.
Pros: Very good dynamic range, very articulate and clean sound, very comfortable, decent quality.
Cons: Carrying case is very cheap, bass leaves some room for improvement, a little bit to expensive.
Summary: I read some reviews that said these headphones have good bass. I don't hear it. They don't have a tinny sound either. It's just that they sound average to me. I'm probably not the best judge of sound quality.
Pros: They are comfortable. They sound okay.
Cons: I've observed one flaw. The wire insulation is made of a nice rubbery material that gives the cords a nice feel to touch and hold. It feels like high quality material. Unfortunately, when the wires are bumped or rubbed against clothing and other obstacles, it seems to transfer sound to headphones...
Summary: Once I heard the short, I started shopping again. The Panasonic RP-HJE120-K have a similar design and audio quality at a HUGE discount compared to these. They're not nearly as comfortable, but if I'm going to be forced to buy headphones every 5 weeks, I'd rather pay $7 instead of $40.
Pros: Extremely comfortable - I absolutely love how they fit. The only earbuds I've ever owned that I could wear all day without any irritation to my ears. Also, they did have good bass response.
Cons: Right out of the box, I thought the audio quality is middle of the road, if not a bit on the low end. Bass was good, but the mids and highs were muddy and scratchy. However, I bought them to listen to audiobooks and podcasts, so I wasn't too concerned. I used them daily for about five weeks when ...
Summary: This is the budget earbud you have been looking for. Been on sale for ~$35, so keep an eye out. Also I haven't had them long enough to comment on durability, but it hasn't shown any signs yet. Lastly, requires cleaning on the tip somewhat often.
Pros: Great sound, an improvement after replacing my ~$30 sennheiser buds. Feels relatively balanced in the frequency response. Oval tip creates a much better seal than circular ones. These will allow you to listen in noisy environments as if they weren't.
Cons: -Great sound isolation: this can be a double edged sword. I have had people walk up right next to me without me noticing multiple times. Don't expect to understand the person next to talking you even at moderately low volumes. -I would prefer a 90 degree turn on the end of the cable, instead of s...
