Summary: these headphones fit very well and are comfortable but they are much too quiet i can barely hear them i have owned two sets of these and both were the exact same, also the cord is either far too short or far too long as it comes with this extension cable that you have to use if you keep whatever...
Summary: I have small ears so earbuds are hard to find for me. These fit great, so I went ahead and purchased five pairs. Well, they all broke in the same way: one of the buds stops working within a few months of use. Continuing the search.

Summary: I owned 2 pairs of these and both broke in less than a month! The second pair in less than 2 weeks! They both ended up having the sound go out on the left side bud. I wore them to work out/run with. So I did sweat, not sure if that's the problem?

Summary: This is my 2nd set of loop style headphones and I must say I love these things. Extremely durable, quality sound is excellent and they sit comfortably. My 1st set lasted 3 years and I'm an active user between my daily gym sessions of heavy lifting & running, out door events to everyday listening.
Summary: As a half-marathoner, I have been searching for earbuds that don't fall out of my ears for some time. In the last six months alone, I have been through half a dozen types of earbuds (Sony, J-buds, Coby, and others), but once those earbuds started to dampen with sweat after the first mile or so, I...
Summary: I've had two of these earphones. The sound is good but they don't last. On both sets I've lost sound in one earbud over time. The first set lasted about 8 months but the second set only lasted less than 2 months before the left speaker stopped working.
