Pros: Great sound quality. Amazing bass, the low-end is crystal clear, no buzzing or muddiness. Very comfortable, and I happen to like the 2-foot cord since it's the perfect length to put my MP3 player in my coat pocket.
Cons: Isolation could be better. I've tried all three of the earpieces and none of them could achieve a very good seal. I ride a train to work so I was hoping for something that could block external noise a little better, but I'm probably spoiled by my old Etymotic 6is that started falling apart. If is...
Excerpt: 3 weeks ago I was in an HMV store in London staring aimlessly at a wall of headphones. Clearly I was struggling as after about 5 minutes a shop assitant came over and recommended these babies.
Excerpt: I bought these earphones as replacements for an old pair of Sony Fontopia earphones which I lost. The Fontopias were about £20 and these were £35. Firstly, these are comfortable. They do not feel intrusive in your ear canal and even after very long periods (4+ hours) they barely irritate at all.
Summary: After using these headphones for a long time i have come to the conclusion that they are superb. There are a few issues. My ears are strange shapes and i have to use the large rubber attachment which seems to do the trick although the fit isn't great.
Summary: I've been using these headphones for a couple of months now, they fit well and have a nice sound to them. Not sure about cancelling out all the sound around me, I can still hear the train at times so particularly watching movies I still need to turn up the volume more than I'd like to on my iPod.
Excerpt: It seems to be the ultimate cardinal sin among gadget fans - failing to upgrade the headphones that came with your iPod/MP3 Player. But what if you've never had any problems with your bundled headphones?
Pros: Great looks, lots of extra kit, noise cancelling works, comfortable, top quality sound
Cons: Not quite as big a difference as you might be led to expect . . .
