Exceptional! When they were $15...

Pros: These are great headphone! They do very well at keeping noise out, they're comfortable, great price point of $15 in 2011 (!!).
Cons: I bought these in 2011 for $15 at Newegg. That was a great price, and I would likely pay up to $20-25 for them. But seeing them at $52 kind of appalls me... They aren't THAT exceptional, and that's my reason for the reduction in eggs. For what it's worth, under $25, they would get a 5-egg from me.
Summary: Those who are willing to transport these "safely" would have a lot less to worry about.
Pros: At the time, the cost was reasonable (less than $20) and they take up no space so that I could carry them anywhere and are available for my smartphone or tablet.
Cons: My con has to do with the current price ($60). I could never pay anything close to this for even the best earbuds in the world because they are at constant risk of being damaged, especially the way that I transport them - loose in my bag and coiled up. Wires as thin as these are always tangled up...
Summary: This is my 2nd pair in 6 months and both pair have had one of the speakers go out almost totally within a month. This is with normal use, at home on the laptop, and at work in an office to keep from disturbing others.
Pros: - Satisfying bass and midtones, with clear treble, none of that "in a can" sound - Adjustable size, for small, medium, or large ears, snug but comfortable fit - Low profile - L-type plug - Isolates outside noise, which is great for airplanes
Cons: - Tendency to have one speaker go out partially - Delicate, cannot stress that enough (see above) - No carrying case (see above) - Cord noise, though not as bad as I expected - No way to tell in darkness which is L and R (I just used a piece of tape to tell)
Summary: Great headphones and even bought another pair for my girlfriend, but mine broke and hers are still going strong.
Pros: Great sound! Price ($17) Name brand
Cons: One side plays sound at 20% volume of the other one day, as well as that one side being scratchy and distorted. Obviously one earpiece broke and the other is ok. I wear them about 3-4 times a week while riding my motorcycle under a helmet, no tugging or rough usage, I expected more. Trying to get...
Summary: Still a fan of Senn...but as they say you get what you pay for.
Pros: Big fan of Senn's products and I picked these up because folks stated they have great bass...I am not sure what they are comparing these to but I do not concur. The Bass is incredibly minimal. My stock iPhone buds have much better bass then these. Save your money, even if they are on sale, and bu...
Cons: Very weak bass, nearly undetectable even with all bass boosts on and treble turned down.
