Summary: These earphones are excellent as long as you are aware of a few things. Firstly, if you are looking for earphones to listen to any bass heavy music then you will be very disappointed. For most people "good sound" really means that it has a lot of bass. However, these do have a good sound as their treble and middle is extremely clear. Vocal tracks and any tracks with a lot of instruments really come alive with these earphones.
Summary: I use earphones every day for work on my laptop and go through quite a few as one side always seems break, with loose wires etc so don't buy expensive pairs. These have a very good sound quality for the price. My only complaints would be the lettering marking "L" and "R" is very faint and hard to see and the wires are sooo long I have to tie them up as they will get caught on everything and then the wires will get loose....
Summary: I spend a lot of time commuting, 240+ miles each day using taxis, trains, underground, and walking so audio helps pass the time. After trying Bose, Sennheiser and Sony earphones I realised that no matter how much you spend they all break after 3-6 months. My previous pair, Sonys, had lasted about 6 months but were out of stock so I bought these, as they were very cheap, to use until the Sonys were available again.
Summary: Honestly I was so suprised when I saw the price for these earphones because in store I know they would have cost around £7 at least. So when I finally received them I was even more suprised that the quality of earphone was so good. I can honestly say these are the best earphones I have purchased and I reccommend every individual to purchase these earphones. Plus a big bonus is that they fit real comfortable.
