BASS HEAVY ROCKS!

Gary W., Newegg
21 February 2014
  • Summary: As inexpensive as these things are and as good as they have performed for me I will be buying more..................
  • Pros: I bought these to replace my Senheiser buds that served me well for a few years. I needed more bass and these things delivered-maybe a little too bass heavy. I went to the media player's equalizer settings and tuned them just the way I wanted them to sound. Very happy!
  • Cons: All the wires on the plug and speakers are straight in.I would have liked them at a right angle instead but no biggie. You have to be careful about removing the earbuds and phone jack not to pull on the wires--same as any other earbuds. Time will tell about how long they last. I use mine for work...

Sound good but only when properly in your ear

John H., Newegg
21 February 2014
  • Summary: Not the worst headphones I have ever owned either and, to be honest, considering they retail for less than $30 and I got them for less than some I have seen next to gum in a checkout line I think they are a fairly good bargain.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, durable and comes with 3 sizes of earpads so you get a better than average chance of having them fit well. I purchased these as a low cost headphone to use at the gym because I keep tearing up every set I take there and figured I better just get something inexpensive yet acceptable. ...
  • Cons: Must be in your ear "just perfect" to get the optimal sound. If they are in too far, not far enough or they are loose and shake into a non-optimal position the sound degrades from above average to poor. That's all more of a factor of the type of headphone it is though as opposed to a quality issu...

THE BASS...WOW

David W., Newegg
20 January 2014

  • Pros: Good Highs, Deep Bass, Decent Sound
  • Cons: None so far

Happy, but not impressed.

Marion C., Newegg
16 January 2014
  • Summary: Fine speakers, paid $5 for each pair so hard to complain.
  • Pros: Capable of decent bass, 3 different "ear" adapters.
  • Cons: The input should be equalized, the bass seems too high by default, I for one needed to drop the lows. 4Ft Cable, the biggest con as this makes them very inconvenient to use and the reason I will definitely never buy this model again, as the other cons are easily remedied-not taking an egg for it,...

Great at the price I paid

EDWARD H., Newegg
30 December 2013
  • Pros: Excellent sound for budget earphones (I paid <6 bucks).
  • Cons: Unusual design makes them stick out of the ear more than usual. This also causes the wires to route a bit strangely. Not exactly uncomfortable, but takes a bit of getting used to.

  • Summary: Besides looking great, the KEB's also have great bass. They're amazing especially with the proper equalization but if you turn it up too high it will drown out everything else. Adjust as needed with these.
  • Pros: Great bass response especially with the right settings on your device.
  • Cons: Treble is something to be desired, but fixable.

  • Summary: When I first got these, I plugged them in and thought "oh my god, these sound horrible." Then I realized I didn't have them plugged in all the way...I nudged the jack in all the way and wow! They sound just as good as any other headphones I've tried...but they have a lifetime warranty.
  • Pros: Sound is good for the money; lifetime warranty; great noise-cancelling qualities
  • Cons: They're kind of awkward to put in your ear without mashing on the wire

Blooming great Buds!

SKIPY, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: Excellent sound quality at both ends. Great dynamics and punchy base. Beautifully made and comes with different size buds so a comfy fit is ensured. Brilliant for the price. Took a little time to get the hang of the in line leads (normally phones leads enter the buds at right angles) but hey,...
