Excerpt: I really liked these earbuds. The sound quality was supurb for the price and they were great at blocking out other noise on the train, etc. Unfortunately, the left bud stopped working on me for no reason. They weren't abused in any way and I haven't even had them 2 years. Very dissapointing, especially because I liked them so much before they broke.
Excerpt: I bought these headphones from a retail store for the specific use of using a good pair of headphones while editing videos. I keep them in a nice semi-hard protective case and keep them with my laptop. The sound quality is good and is worth the price. Only one VERY BIG Caveat. I had my first set for about a year when one of the earbud drivers quit working, leaving me with sound coming only from one ear.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Great Sound
Excerpt: I use these headphones mostly for running in the gym, and although the sound quality is pretty good for the price in my opinion, it's annoying that there's a background thumping from the cable hitting your chest....it completely ruined my running experience. Also the switch to pause/fast forward songs etc. is slightly bumpy and very inconvenient...definitely not as smooth and seamless as the apple headphones.
