eh

Dean G., Newegg
20 January 2013
  • Pros: good sound
  • Cons: doesn't fit my ear well. Falls out, is pulled out, doesn't make proper contact. Maybe my ear is deformed, but they're pretty good original equipment.

Disappointed

Nghia P., Newegg
3 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought these because of the good reviews. I prompted threw them aside after a few tries. Now it's too late (31 days) to request a refund. Bummer.
  • Pros: They look good
  • Cons: 1) Too big for my ears. Unlike other earphones, you can't select the size of the ear buds. 2) The microphone is inconsistent at best. Most of the time I can't hear anything when using these to make a phone call. (I have a BlackBerry Bold, by the way.) After much turning and tweaking, *sometimes* ...

Good earphone

Hieu N., Newegg
10 November 2012
  • Summary: I am not an audiophile by no means. However, I can discern a good earphone from a bad one, and I consider this earphone to be a pretty good for what I paid for ($15). It doesn't have that 'wash-out' sound as my MEElectronics earbuds (I bought both at the same price range).
  • Pros: - Clear sound - High built quality
  • Cons: -none

Awesome!

Denice L., Newegg
8 October 2012
  • Summary: I've tried just about every other brand of low priced headphones and these are the best I've found next to my super old pair of worn out Sony's that came with my discman. I have small ears, so most of the earpieces are awkward and bulky or pinch one part of my ear or another.
  • Pros: The SOUND!
  • Cons: Adjusting the earpiece

Chandler R., Newegg

  • Summary: I was looking for something to perform similar to Beats Audio earbuds that would stay in during landscaping work. The hooks perform well, but due to my ear canal size, the Beats fit better. The sound is excellent, especially considering they don't seal perfectly in my ear.
  • Pros: Excellent sound quality, durable cord, inline volume control, stays on ears well
  • Cons: A little big for my ear canal

Good

Eddy L., Newegg
13 August 2012
  • Pros: Sound is nice and clear. Secure fit (can't see it falling off anytime soon) They're not mean to be in-ear. They're really loud if you crank up the volume.
  • Cons: Bass is lower than a $20 headset, even when squished into your ears. They aren't in-ear, if you try to push them into your ear they'll fall back out.

Nice Idea - Poor Execution

Richard B., Newegg
10 August 2012
  • Summary: Got these on special for $19.99 - at that price I'm willing to take the bad with the good. They're certainly better sound quality than the MDR-J10/Black pair I was using, and the rubber covers do help keep them from bouncing out of the ear canal as much.
  • Pros: These little buds have great sound quality, and the flexible ear hooks ensure that they stay on - they come with rubber edge covers and foam padding covers so whether you need comfort or grip (or both) where they enter the ear canal, Sennheiser's got you covered. They even have their own volume c...
  • Cons: Buds are excessively large and tend to just sit in the end of the canal instead of popping inside - if they'd have shaved 1 to 1.5 mm off they'd fit comfortably, and if they then replaced that material with something spongy that would then expand after they'd been pushed into the canal you would ...
