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: 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 ...
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: v...
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 spl...
Summary: They're shaped specifically for the left or right ear which is why hey aren't marked left and right. I've never even accidentally put them in backwards. I had no problem with them falling out unless my ears were wet. Even then I would just dry them and be on my way.
Pros: The have the best all around sound of any headset or earbud I've ever used. They're even awesome for BC2! The hybrid semi-active/semi-passive noise cancelling is top notch. Perfect for planes because it blocks out (to be fair) about 50% of the noise....without playing any music. You're in your ow...
Cons: I bought the 2 year protection plan because of bad experience with other earbuds *cough*ipod*cough*. Turns out I'm not gonna need it!
Summary: Contrary to previous poster's remarks, they are marked L and R on the under side. If your ears wax up easily, the buds get messy, and are difficult to clean (grab a paper clip). I wish I could have tried them before buying, I probably would have passed.
Pros: Amazing range, great bass when you get them situated just right. Light weight, good at high volumes.
Cons: These are awesome if you can get them lined up, and one of the three sizes of the buds fits you just right. The problem I have is I can't get them lined up just right, or if I do, they fall out of place with the slightest of movement. This is with all 3 sizes. Also, the smallest buds produce horr...
Summary: Get this for your electro-heavy music, but don't rely on these for vocals. This pair of headphone will last you a very long time, unless you're bad at taking care of fragile things. DO NOT get these if you're clumsy as they will fall apart very easily from mis-use.
Pros: The sound reproduction is riveting once it's past the burn-in period; I think these are best suited for electro-heavy tracks, as vocals still don't have a punchy feel to it (even after a year+ of use.
Cons: The drivers started separating from the housing a few months in from light wear (no problem, I super-glued them back together). DO NOT get these if you're clumsy as they will fall apart very easily from mis-use. They don't come pre-burned, which could've saved the consumer from false accusations ...
Summary: A combination of the reviews, the Klipsch reputation, and the noise isolation feature convinced me to try the S4. I just expected more so I was disappointed when I first tried the S4. I recommend you wait for a 75% off sale or save your money.
Pros: Light weight, comfortable and reasonable sound. (Buying toys from Newegg is always a pleasure.)
Cons: Noise isolation is partial and is NOT active. There is slight noise reduction because you put them in your ear canal. The other ear buds I own that highlight noise reduction are active or noise cancelling for about the same price as the S4s. The S4s are not marked for left and right. Klipsch went...
