Summary: First of all, I am not a audiofile with several pairs of $1,000 headphones. I am more of a casual listener but I do like good sound. This is also my first review on head-fi so give me some feedback on this review.
For a long time I was happy with cheap headphones, apple, JVC, skullcandy, etc. Well after a while I wanted some more serious headphones for some heavier listening so I picked up some Isport immersions. I had them for about 4 months.
Pros: Bass is on the heavier side. Headphones stay in ear well once you find the right fit.
Cons: Durability is terrible. Mids are way too recesed. Bass is a bit bloated
Summary: Lee you lied! Noel Lee that is - founder of Monster Cable Products Inc. Noel promised in-ear headphones that represent "the ultimate high-performance sport headphone: rugged, sweatproof and washable". They couldn't handle my sedentary commute to work though could they Noel?! I didn't have chance to build up a sweat - never mind the need to wash them - because before I had the chance the "ear hooks" (clearly fishing for jargon..
AVOID. Just awful! Very expensive for the quality - only buy them if less than £10

Summary: Extremely expensive for the quality with sound performance comparable to the free Samsung earphones I got with my Galaxy Note 2. I bought these earphones in October 2013 for £49.95 and returned them in July 2014 through the excellent Amazon customer service. I returned these earphones because they stopped working properly, the remote is held together by some cheap glue which came apart, this made the remote malfunction.
Summary: I should start off by stating that I do not classify myself as an audiophile, but I do appreciate decent sound quality. I purchased the Monster iSport expecting durable earbuds and decent sound quality at best. What I received in return was neither. These earbuds fit awkwardly within the ear and project the sound quality equivalent to the stock iPhone 5 earpods. On top of the fit and sound quality, the left earbud stopped working within a week.
I suspect they are fake - beware. Control button becomes unusable after a few weeks :-(

Summary: Avoid VP Sales if you have a problem it seems there is no way to contact them, I suspect they are fake which is the only reason I can see that the seller would make it impossible to send them a message like most other legitimate sites!!! Also, they dont stay in the ear anywhere like as well as they claim!!!!
Summary: Quite why earphone manufacturers insist on these clip-on additions to a simple concept is beyond me. I tried all 5 sizes none of which fitted with ease. If you just want to plug in your ears and go these are NOT for you. This was my typical use: 1 - squeeze clips with thumb and forefinger 2 - insert in ear canal. 3 - rotate ear bud 4 - slowly release clip so it hooks under ear ridge 5 - let go of ear bud and check fit.
Summary: Impossible to fit.. terrible sound, we seem to prefer expensive ear phones, over cheaper ones, because of the stupid reviews we read all the time. Donte be fooled, the best options arent always the most expensive ones.. Cant give a zero, because its not a option..
