Great

Steven N., Newegg

  • Pros: Had these for about 4 months now, great for the price and comfortable in the ears.
  • Cons: Volume control is hard to accurately adjust volume, have to be very careful otherwise you will get to much volume or too little.

Lasted 3 months

Philip Z., Newegg
3 January 2012
  • Pros: Sound quality was very good. Could really tell the difference between these and lower quality buds.
  • Cons: Lasted 3 months and the right side went bad. Same thing happened on the other pair I purchased for a friend. His did not last quite as long.

User Review

Marcey L., Newegg

  • Summary: Comes with a case, fittings, etc. Those aren't very useful to me, but they may be to others. The volume control is a bit strange, but nothing unbearable.
  • Pros: I enjoy the sound very much, though I upgraded from simple Apple earbuds. I find them very comfortable in my ears. Crisp and clear sound. I've listened to a variety of podcasts, music, and some video games with them. They seem to cancel a bit of noise, but nothing to write home about. The wiring has plenty of length, which was a big concern for me.
  • Cons: The bass is limited, but not something I noticed until I read another review, which caused me to realize that were the case.

UnBeatable

Robert R., Newegg
28 October 2011
  • Summary: Need a nub on the volume control so you can find it by feel.
  • Pros: Great sound at great price. I've bought lots of earbuds looking for good sound. I've been to the Bose store and these are way better for the money, and they just sound better. Really smooth sounding I listen to every type of music from Classic Rock to Jazz and Classical.
  • Cons: Don't wear them to the gym they will fall out. They are not noise cancelling or supressing. But that not what you bought them for. The volume control is funky and not easy to feel with your hand.

Excellent earbuds for the price

John W., Newegg
31 August 2011
  • Summary: I got these on sale for $29 and what a deal! I replaced a pair of iPod buds with these and they are incredible by comparison. They are incredible anyway. I have a couple other pairs of earbuds and these are my favorites, hands down.
  • Pros: Excellent sound reproduction. Surprisingly good lows and reasonable highs. Plug is conveniently angled at a slightly obtuse angle (100-deg? ish). Cable length is good. Inline volume control is excellent for lowering the volume quickly to hear something else. All the covers for the buds are excellent and comfortable (more/replacement foam covers can be ordered elsewhere). Left bud has a raised dot on the lower interior of the stem for easy tactile identification of tha...
  • Cons: Nothing worth docking an egg. If I had to be extremely picky, the highs are a little tinny in the very high end (show me earbuds where that -doesn't- happen...). Also the stem for the buds are not uniquely shaped for each ear. Like I said, if I had to be extremely picky.

Outstanding with few exceptions

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Best earbuds I have used. They do require a few days or more of break in time for best low frequency response so be patient. What is most impressive is the level of sound detail. Forget the "Skullcandy". I have tried several of them. They provide NO "grinding bass". Quite the opposite. These are small diameter earbuds so "grinding bass" is not possible but the MX 580's get close. Well worth the price. They come with pads, gaskets and bag.
  • Cons: None. Buy them.

Impressive Sound From A Small Package

Timothy B., Newegg
27 March 2011
  • Summary: This is more like a continued Pros column, but along with the great slider, sound and design, the three sizes of earbud covers will fit every ear size and shape. Even though I personally found the largest size too large, it was still as comfy as the mid-sized and padded ones. The product also includes a clip-on so you can use the earbuds with your iPod/MP3 player while running or doing whatever else.
  • Pros: There are quite a few things about this pair of earbuds that really sets them apart from others in the sub-$50 earbud market. I've owned just about every brand and price range of audio wear from headphones to earbuds that you can imagine and, for the price, the are the absolute best.
  • Cons: The anti-tangle cord seems to reject its name sometimes and will still tangle. Larger sized earbud covers meant for Spock ears only. Biggest complaint has to be the short cord at only maybe 3 feet long.

Great for the Price - Best Buds on Newegg

Anonymous, Newegg
19 July 2010
  • Summary: To not get shocked I have on the rubber ear pieces included in the purchase which help to shield me from the metal. The causes for the shocks are likely me building up a charge and not an issue with the headphones. I doubt most people will encounter the same issue.
  • Pros: Sound is clear and accurate. While my list of pros may be short let me just say it was well worth the money.
  • Cons: I thought the volume slider would allow me to turn the sound all the way off, but really the sound difference is like a +/- 50% louder/softer from wherever the sound currently is on the player.
