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: Other than the noise transmitted through wire when it's being bothered, the sound quality of the music is pretty good. You barely hear any ambiance from outside and the bass and trebles are clear.
Pros: Great sound quality, clear and bass is good. Extra replacement grommets for the earphones. Still comfortable after an hour of use.
Cons: Sound travels really well through the wires. You can hear every little bumps, scrapes, and movement of the wire when you walk/run.
Summary: I think bought these for a price in the mid-thirties (from NewEgg, of course)! I would not pay the original list price of $79.99, but for less than $40. I think I got good value. (I sort of expected to like these because I have Klipsch speakers in my audio system at home and I have always liked Paul...
Pros: Very good bass but not bass-heavy. Delicate trebles, too. This is well-balanced sound.
Cons: It is true these need to be broken in, and until you do they can sound a bit tinny. By the end of your first week with them you will be happy, period.
Pros: Cheap! Got them for $50, i use to have a pair of Shure E3C and Ultimate Ears (pre logitech). These headphone do not sound as good as those, but you could buy 5-6 of these for one of those. Comfortable in the ears, nice bass, the treble could be better, but for the price you can't beat them.
Cons: The wiring on the earbuds do not feel like they are very high quality. They seem to be very "rubbery" they still curl up quite easily.
Summary: I ware these while motorcycle riding, one of my bikes has fairly loud pipes and these do a good job over covering up the noise. If you get them fitted in correctly they will just about block out all the normal outside noise.
Pros: They fit tight into the ear, The bass is killer on these and I like the overall sound. Good value for the money and I have a lot of Ear Buds, I am always looking for the Grail of Buds at a cheap price
Cons: The cables are a bit on the flimsy side, I a noticing some shorting out. See other thoughts
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.
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 o...
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'...
Cons: - There are some reliability problems because of the small wires - I am repairing my friend's set right now, there are about 8 enameled wires inside the cable, very tiny and hard to solder (you need to burn the enamel off of the wire with a lighter first).
Summary: Fantastic headphones, though I prefer a 'warm' sound signature, and these have more of a 'cool' sound signature. They are good headphones that are worth your money, but I think they are over-hyped a little bit. There are some really good competitors.
Pros: These are ridiculously durable. Don't let that flimsy-looking cord fool you, these can take abuse. As far as sound, they are great all around and very accurate. Comfy. Klipsch e-mail tech support is really friendly (don't use their chat though). When I lost a large earpiece I e-mailed them and th...
Cons: Volume can get loud, although I wish it could go even louder as my ears aren't too good. The highs can be fatiguing and can be a little overpowering. Bass is very solid, although you're definitely not going to FEEL the beat anytime soon.
