Summary: I have never regretted buying these; they were definitely worth the money. Sleeping with them in is not such a good idea, because it will be exremely uncomfortable if you lay your head down on one side or the other. I actually stepped on my multiple times, and I thought I've broken them on multiple occations, but to my suprise I have not.
Pros: These headphones are incredibly clear and have a very full sound to them. The bass is plentiful, but not overwhelming. The sound quality has not decreased over the past year of heavy usage. I was also relieved they carried multple end pieces to change around depending on the size of your ears.
Cons: They hurt the insides of my ears after a while, and it can be uncomfortable. That's the only thing keeping me from giving these 5 eggs.
Summary: If your thiking about it just buy them you wont regret it.
Pros: Absolutely the best at its price range. Extremely comfortable, the angled earpieces fit my ears perfectly. Sound is fantastic with deep bass, super crisp tones. Like listening to your songs for the first time again. Blocks out almost all sound.
Cons: Left earbud on mine can transfer static electricity. Sort of annoying but the only flaw.
Summary: I gave these headphones to my father some time ago. They were decent, but I have moved onto much better ones and have found my niche to be over-ears rather than in-ears, partly due to full-sized have better, real life sound, and also due to the fact that I had a major ear infection in my right ear a while back, and I believe it actually blew my eardrum. Now, there is almost always fluid buildup in my right ear, and my sinus issues don't help matters.
Pros: Lightweight, Easy Fit, Comfortable, Good Isolation, Decent sound for price.
Cons: Houses are cheap feeling (maybe that's why they are lightweight.), Cable, Sound sounds largely unnatural
Summary: I recently bought a pair of Klipsch S4A because of their glowing reviews on certain tech websites. I figured I'd finally try out a Klipsch product to see what they sounded like. Overall, I don't mind them, but there are some LARGE issues with these IEMs.
I gave the S4s a 20-ish hour burn period before I began to analyze their sound quality. Before the burn in, I did a bit of introductory listening and fit test.
Pros: Good build quality, GREAT fit, Comfortable, Great Isolation
Cons: V-Shaped sound signature, Narrow soundstage, Straight plug, Cable is short, Button is WAY too big
Summary: These sound on par, if not better than my Shure, which is roughly 3 times the street price. These are definitely an upgrade from your Apple buds, and well worth the investment. You'll start hearing nuances in songs you never noticed before. Get these over any buds made by Monster, i.e Dr. Dre.
Pros: - Overall sound quality is superb; very full and well balanced - Excellent lows for powerful and clear bass - Clearly defined mids for vocals - Sparkling highs - Very elegant, understated design; doesn't yell out "hey look at me suspicious looking person"
Cons: - Not really noise cancelling as advertised, but I guess if you push the buds in far enough in your ear they do cancel out some noise. - May sound a bit harsh out-of-the-box, but once you break them in, or should I say burn them in, they sound amazing
Summary: Line up the little lines on the speakers & earpieces if you swap out to use a different size.
Pros: Best sound quality I've ever heard from buds. Tested side by side with Dr. Dre buds (both series) and the Klipsch was better all around. Great bass, smooth rich mids and sharp highs. Well worth the money!
Cons: Not realy a con, but some may see it as so: You must fit them into your ear correctly: For me, it is putting them in while using me opposite hand to lightly pull my ear back (and slightly up). Put bud in and then pull it back out towards the opening near where it feels like it's close to too far (and would fall out). If you do it with music playing, you'll instantly hear the difference (especially the bass). Minor con: cord noise ...but that's true on all buds I've ow...
Summary: Its an investment so take care of them. No more whadding them up and stuffing them into your pocket with your keys!
Pros: Thumbs Up! I read a C-Net review for the top 5 earbuds. In a range of $80 - $300 plus, these were on the low end. I personally feel paying even $80 for earbuds is a lot of money, especially considering the hell they get put through. However, these are by far the best earbuds I've ever purchase: very comfortable, excellent range of sound, and no popping after hours of use.
Cons: None. I might have said they were too pricey until I realized how expensive these things can get. Also, the C-Net review mentioned these are strong competition for the more expensive counterparts.
Summary: I run with these all the time, 30-50 min runs. I'm drenched and these buds hardly fall out, nor have the speakers shorted. If you're fine with the over ear style, these are an excellent choice.
Pros: They do have excellent noise cancellation, are extremely comfortable, and rarely fall out of my ears IF you wear them over-ear style. Lost a medium sized earbud and they replaced it no charge. It's actually what inspired me to write a review.
Cons: Because they work so well at blocking sound, sound carries very well on the wire itself. So if you don't run the cord over your ear, the cord will constantly hit other objects and you'll hear it all. It limits me to only wearing them this way. The plastic protection at the top of the wire has split. Hasn't impacted functionality, but could be bad farther down the road. I attribute it to constantly being in my pocket or on my ears. Any headphones that can take the kind...
