Let me start by saying this is my first review here on head-fi and I would appreciate any feedback good or bad. Also I purchased these for $30 and will be reviewing them as $30 earphones.
I think that the design is my favorite part about these earphones. I have always had issues with earphones falling out and never being able to move with them in my ears.
Summary: As I got a new iPhone 5 because my old one broke I decided to get some in-ear headphones while I was at it. I have owned a lot of different in-ear headphones before, but over the past few months I haven't had any. I had a pair of Shure, that were 170$ I do not recall what model, these surpass them in many ways. They aren't like Beats, my Shure reminded me greatly of Beats Solo, however these are something different.
Pros: Customizable fit, very good overall range, cool looking, don't fall out, cheap,
Cons: Hard to get in if you don't have the perfect pieces,
Excerpt: I use the ISports in a high intensity 2 hour workout and they stay securely in my ears better than any other Monster, Bose, Sony product I've tried. I hope they can hold up and not have a wire short out do to the movement. I haven't found a headset yet that can last more than 8 months. Maybe these are it?
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality, Perfect Fit
Summary: They work as they should, and the sound is great. Lots of the reviews sayy that its hard to get them in to your ear, but they are really not.. You just need to know how to. The first couple of times you can use a mirror.
Summary: Once the fit had been perfected after a couple of trys the sound is the best I have ever heard from in ear phones. Couldnt even hear the whistle of the wind past the cables which i put down to the quality of the fit. The clips holding the speaker in place on the inside of the ear are secure but not uncomfortable even after 3 hours of continued use. Non tangle cable and a nice storage bag too. Best headphone I have purchased and highly recommended.
Summary: Bought primarily for the gym (with a view to buy another pair of expensive, overheard headphones), I have ended up using these everywhere, and saved a lot of money. The sound quality is easily as good as Beats (my previous headphones). The buds and 'wingtips' are so comfortable (they come in 4 different sizes) that you hardly notice them, and can easily listen for hours without discomfort (so far the longest I have had them in is 4 hours).
Summary: Cannot recommend highly enough. Super super sound out of these things. Feel great in the ears. I jog a lot and use them in the gym for all sorts of lifting and never a problem. So comfortable that I do not know they are in. Isolation of outside sounds may be a problem for some but I just wanna listen to my music and that is it! Love them!
