Works fine but the bass are kind of poor

Summary: Great product for use during exercises, stay really good on your ears and feels great but in sound quality just didn't reach my expectations. The bass aren't that good comparing with other Headphones of the same price in the market.
Summary: Spent days trying to find the right sport clips and I've decided to just use the earphones by themselves. It's definitely not a snug fit without the sport clips but they hurt my ears and the sound quality drops in half when I use them. The sound quality of these earphones is definitely better than the Sennheiser sports earphones I also own, but the price is definitely too high. Since the little pouch of clips are useless for me, -2 stars.
Hard to get in proper position in ear and it is not as comfortable as other earbuds

Summary: Hurts the ears after wearing for awhile.... Difficult to fit into the ear properly.... Sound is good but no better than other headphones that are cheaper.... Remote on cord only works with iphone, ipod, ipad... does not work properly on droid phones.....
Summary: I wanted to upgrade from my Sennheiser CX 680 which are less than half the price of these, but was sorely disappointed with these earphones. The build quality is good, even though they come with a good selections of clip on inserts, I didn't like the feel of the materials. The Sennheiser CX 680 sound about the same and are sweat proof, they also come with a option to shorten the cord if you want to clip your mp3 player to your arm or your shirt collar.
Summary: Monster generally produces staggeringly overpriced products and this is no exception. The build quality and sound performance is very good, and the packaging itself is fantastic, but it's hard to recommend this when priced over $100. The box includes a number of different tip sizes but none of them were as comfortable as I would have liked and after an hour of listening or so I appreciate a break.
Great Sound. Great Fit. Not sure about quality control.

Summary: Very impressive sound. I listen to classical music and these are the best sounding headphones I have come across. Crisp and clear and perfectly capable of handling the high notes. Once I figured out all the bits and pieces,they fit great and held in place even when pounding the pavement. Unfortunately, when I tried to use the microphone to talk on the phone, it turned out there was a problem and I had to return them to Amazon for exchange.
Summary: I had high hopes for the Monster iSport. I tried all the extra ear adapters that came with it but none made me feel good while running. Running is my sport, and they did'nt measure up on comfort. They felt heavy in my ear and would fall out....not much fun. With that being said they did sound great. The sound quality is amazing. If I was a guy that just walks around the gym and pumps iron they would be awesome. Just want other runners to aware it my not be for them.
Summary: Like Monster's premium cables, one of the most striking things about iSport in-ear headphones is durability. This waterproofed headphones exudes quality from end-to-end with flat but very durable cable to earpieces themselves. This thing will last beyond most earphones. And considering how quickly I go through each earphones, durability may be a reason enough for many listeners. FIrst the fitting.
Summary: Purchased it recently at a local NYC electronics store that is also an Amazon Merchant. I used it this weekend while doing my outdoor waterfront cardio workout & outdoor ice skating. There is only a slightly better sound quality difference from my Sony h.ear $10 earphones. So paying close to its regular price of $149, it's not worth the difference. I've yet to test its waterproof feature but the flat cable seems to get it less tangled up.
Summary: I'll keep this review short and sweet. Things I like: -Good sound quality -Good noise cancellation (If that's what you're looking for) -Water proof Things I dislike: -Not easy to quickly place in your ears, takes too much effort -Noise cancellation isn't really something I am looking for when I am running and need to be somewhat aware of my surroundings -Goes a little too far into the ear canal for my comfort.
