Excerpt: My fiancee and I were using Apple earbuds on our iPhones, and I was looking for something louder that would cut background noise. WE LOVE THESE! The price is right, they're loud, they cut background noise a lot, and they even feel good in our ears. We use them for cell calls, cutting background noise at work, and for books on tape while driving.
Pros: Cut Outside Noise, Louder Than Apple, Nice and loud
Cons: Volume Buttons Stiff, Wire Is A Little Stiff
Too quiet for using whilst training or working out.

Summary: They're just too quiet. When you have Prodigy playing at full blast and can hear the rowing machine over it, when you're on the watt bike and you can hear the inane conversation of those sat next to you, when you're outside running and you can hear the traffic as you're out running you know the headphones are too damned quiet.
Summary: I bought these only as I needed some earphones with a mic. They're perfect for this. I use them for phone calls every night, I wouldn't listen to music on them as I prefer over ear headphones but they're are decent quality nonetheless.
Summary: Wanted a pair of earphones to control the I-phone and this is what these do. Saves gettin phone in and out of pocket as it controls volume, song skip and you can answer it too. Four stars as they're a bit flimsy and not sure how long they'll last.
Summary: The description said these were made specially for i-phone / i-pod, but I thought the volume control would still work on my android phone: it doesn't. The other button which starts and pauses the music and picks up the line works, but the design of the buttons (all three of them) means that you need to press really hard for them to work. I would recommend not clipping your nails too short to operate these!
Summary: They had great sound quality and had had a comfortable fit. Not much bad to say apart from the whole 2 wire thing going on. It really bugs me bad and I would say a change up in that respect would be good but oh well
Summary: √ Sound was decent enough. X Didn't fit my ears as well as the original iPhone headphones X Play controls feel mushy X People complained of static when I used the microphone I ended up ditching them and buying the original Apple ones again and am much happier with them.
