Decent sound, don't spend more than $30

Donald W., Newegg
16 May 2014
  • Summary: Wow, the MSRP on these was $70? I paid $28 - must have been my lucky day. These were decent headphones - I refuse to spend more than $30 on a pair since I use my headphones in the gym and while mowing the lawn.
  • Pros: Acceptable sound Decent lifespan
  • Cons: Highs were a little tinny Right headphone went kaput after 2 years of use

Best value earphones (IMO)

Son T., Newegg

great for commuting

Kevin M., Newegg
5 November 2013
  • Pros: These are great headphones for my daily commute. The subway is incredibly loud and the noise isolating earbuds help shut out the noise and allow you to play the music at a lower volume.
  • Cons: none so far

Good value

Donald W., Newegg
22 September 2013
  • Summary: For $25, you really can't go wrong with these. I needed headphones for the gym and wasn't willing to spend an arm and a leg for something that could very well wind up broken. I'm impressed with the amount of noise the block out and amount of sound they produce.
  • Pros: Produces good amount of sound Blocks out a high amount of noise In-line volume controls Price
  • Cons: Sounds tinny at high volume

Good, but not $69.99 good

Marcos M., Newegg
22 August 2013
  • Pros: Great audio and the rubber fits so well that it does help block outside noise. The volume control is also really nice.
  • Cons: I got it for $15 during a clearance...so I'm very happy. However I can't imagine paying $69 for it. That's pretty crazy.

great little earbuds

Jeffrey E., Newegg
22 August 2013
  • Pros: They fit the ear great, and come with 3 different size rubber adapters just in case they don't fit out of the box. They dampen enough sound to make listening comfortable. For what I paid, they're terrific
  • Cons: can't think of one

Cheap parts

Vincent Z., Newegg
19 August 2013
  • Summary: Warranty doesn't cover the anything from the cons section from what I've read on their product website, oh well.
  • Pros: Better sound quality compared to skull candy headphones that I find in retail stores nearby at around the same price. Looong Cable.
  • Cons: The sound from the right was weaker than the sound from the left. However, that was all solved by another problem haha. Made of very cheap plastic, the front half of the right ear-bud broke off when I fell to my right (it was in the front pocket). It cannot be put back together and the sound is a...

Great Sound... when your not moving

Daniel D., Newegg
25 May 2013
  • Summary: Great quality for the money, but somewhat wish I just spent more on some higher end sennheiser's, since I was already familiar with that level of preformance. My bad
  • Pros: Decent bass, Decent sound, trusted name, and looks like good build quality in this price range. Only paid $18 free shipping, and would have paid $30. They feel pretty comfy in my ears. Come with 3 sizes of the ear plugs, using the medium ones.
  • Cons: The cord is loud. Any slight movement and you hear banging, rubbing, and squeaking. I've had a slightly higher end pair of sennheiser's before, and their cord wasn't loud when I even jogged. I can't imagine jogging with these unless I was playing them extremely loud, which could be a safety issue...

Great for the price

Zameer K., Newegg
8 May 2013
  • Summary: none at the moment
  • Pros: Great in-ear headphones for the price. I got them when they were at sale for $17 and they are great for the price. The build quality is pretty darn good and they fit in my ears very snugly... I am not even trying to listen hard but I can hear much much better tone and clarity and my music is now....
  • Cons: for the price, you gotta be kidding me to have any con
