Excerpt: Hands down one of the best sounding buds out there. I keep buying them over and over. And I only need to replace them because I abuse the heck out of them and use them constantly everyday. I've worked in the music industry for many years, I've sold very hi-end stereo equipment and these earphones are spectacular. Hopefully Panasonic will keep them in production for the foreseeable future.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Summary: These are THE BEST in-ear earphones I have ever used. Have these in Black for a year now, and they seem to work the same, as they did when I got them. Will buy them again, after this one stops working! The only problem for me is the L shaped jack and the wire getting tangled. Fabulous product, at a very reasonable price!
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Durable, Exceeded expectations, Convenient
Summary: For right around $5.00 I figured these would be adequate for listening to books on my MP3 player. They are just fine for this use. I did try them on my iPod with music, and they were not acceptable at all. No bass and no balance. If you are looking for a low cost option for listening to the spoken word these are great. They cord is a little thin, but this was not an issue for me. If you are going to try to fold it for storage it may kink.
Summary: I listen to loud music a LOT so I have pretty high expectations for all the headphones I buy and I can't get over how great these things are. They have great sound quality and they don't sound tinny or muffled at all. The bass quality is surprisingly good for cheap headphones. The shape of the ear thing might be weird to some and might take a little getting used to for those who are used to the more common cylinder-like shape but they're designed to fit comfortably in...
