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

  • 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 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...

Quality earbuds with good quality sound

CHARLES W., Newegg
30 March 2013
  • Pros: Once you find the earpiece that fits your ear, the overall sound quality is above any earbuds I've used and any headphones I've used that cost less than $60, ofcourse this is just my opinion. The build quality is great, sometimes I'll fall asleep with these in and put alot of stress on the cord.
  • Cons: The sound adjustment does this dumb thing where at certain points in it, the sound levels become unbalanced, like becomes very quiet on left and same on right, very annoying and because of it I only use it for full quietness or full loudness.

Great earbuds for the price

Arturo A., Newegg
24 March 2013
  • Summary: All in all though, they have a nice cord length, volume control and the noise isolating is good. They do not have a clip on the cord, and they do produce some cord noise as well as having the angle tip but at the end of the day they good earbuds, just depends what you need them for.
  • Pros: The semi long cord, volume control, and the three different sizes of earbuds. I use them to play Counter Strike and I must admit, they are pretty good for all types of sounds. I use them very rarely to listen to music but when I do they sound good. The bass is not over powering and I am NOT much ...
  • Cons: I always want a clip on the cord so that I can use it on my clothes...I had an older pair of earbuds that had a clip and I loved them! These don't have a clip, and I know I have read that they can have some noise coming from the cord and that is true, why I would like a clip to keep them from jum...

Nice ear phones

Terrence B., Newegg
17 December 2012
  • Summary: For the price without spending a lot these ear phones deliver. If you are very particular about your music you need to go up in cost and design.
  • Pros: Very good fit with extra sizes to accommodate most ears. The sound is crisp and clear with enough bass.
  • Cons: Only con is the cord could be made the flat tangle free way.

Osiel S., Newegg
17 December 2012
  • Summary: They're sufficiently comfortable, as they come with three sizes for the ear plugs. They also come with a small (about 2.5" x 5") smooth black pouch, apparently for carrying the headphones.
  • Pros: I am not very familiar with much variety of audio-related technology, but from my untrained perspective they are very good. The quality is great for earbuds. The cord is sufficiently long to connect to any part of your person where you may store a music player. Personally I feed it in my sweater,...
  • Cons: While the quality may be great, the bass isn't noteworthy. They're just fine for everyone however, unless you really care about heavier bass. They effectively cancel noise only to a certain extent. In a classroom full of chatty people, it cancels most of the noise. However, walking down the sidew...

Very nice!

Rick M., Newegg
7 December 2010
  • Summary: I know a number of earbuds have them but the slider on the cord is nice to drop the volume quickly without having to pull out my phone/ipod.
  • Pros: Excellent quality on all levels... fits comfortably in the ear without the soreness that can come from other ear buds. I was surprised by the quality of the lows. I've listened to everything from Pandora to lossless audio and been very satisfied!
  • Cons: I've liked the noise canceling in my Shure ear buds better. These do a decent job but not as much as I would've liked. But for 50.00 I'm not complaining.
