Summary: I received these headphones yesterday and automatically opened the box to test them out. The sound was surprisingly good, thought I honestly can't tell much difference in headphones (except for the really cheap ones that you buy at the dollar stores) so you shouldn't take my word on the sound. I will say it picked up sounds from my computer game that my previous headphones didn't, which was nice.
Summary: The trebles of guitar music sound like a spoon hitting a pot. Also, bass was fair at best. I bought these buds because of the good reviews. The buds that came with my iPod are much better. I will not risk buying another pair that are relatively expensive like this one. My original iPod buds are fine.
Good comfort, okay sound, absolutely terrible otherwise

Summary: I wanted to buy a budget pair of ear buds to leave at work since I don't lock anything up there. After seeing so many good reviews on these approx. $20 earbuds, I decided to go with these. My personal reference point are some old Denon C350s(approx $50) and a set of Sony MDR-EX90LP (approx $100). Sound Quality Sound wise these earbuds are perfectly good. I wouldn't say they sound great, but they don't sound bad.
Summary: The sound for these buds is good. The only problem I have with the buds is the wires. They have a funky clasp that is supposed to go in back of your neck and then the buds go into your ears then there is another slide in front to adjust the wires. The wires are thin and tangle very easy. I do like the offset plug. If I'd known about the wires I would have looked to buy another brand.
Summary: After owning several budget level earbuds from Jbuds, Sennheiser PMX80's (not buds) and 300B's, Koss, and JVC. I am surprised to find so many positive reviews. These earbuds turned up all the way on several devices were not very loud and the bass response was horrible (very flat). They were maybe on par with the sound quality you get out of a pair of standard ear buds that come with your apple device.
hate these, but maybe it's inherent flaw in all in-ear headphones

Summary: If you are sitting absolutely still and barely breathing and not swallowing, these are fine. Otherwise, get ready to hear every move you make amplified. To get the effect, jam your fingers in your ears. You can hear too much.... Plus with these earbuds, you can hear when the cord taps against your body, so if you're taking a walk or running, you hear every step.
Summary: When they were available for under $10, I was a big fan of the Panasonic RP-HS46-K SLIMZ Ear-Clip Headphones with Ultra-Slim Housing (Black) . So when these "Panasonic Slimz RP-HJE350" semi IEMs came up as a recommended purchase while I was ordering another set of what has become my trusty go-to daily phones, the JVC HAFX67 Air Cushions, I figured I'd give the Panasonics a try.
Summary: I bought these after seeing the mass of favorable reviews here at Amazon and am left wondering who wrote these reviews? The sound is tinny. The bass is weak. The ear pieces are far from comfortable and the quality of the cables is comparable to those on the headphones they give you for free on a Continental airlines flight. I would expect to pay about $8 for a pair of headphones like this and honestly am a bit frustrated that I was duped by all the glowing reviews.
