Summary: Sounds quality is poor and tinny. I bought these to replace my SoundMagic E10s (which had good sound quality but were x3times the price) because they started to fall to pieces. Although I managed to get a good deal (only paid £12 down from £20 on black Friday), the sound quality was poor from the start and they lasted much less than my previous headphones and broken in the same way; the ear bud fell apart exposing the wires.
Summary: I ordered these headphones over others at a similar or higher price point as the reviews of this product were favourable, but the audio quality of the product is not sufficient for the price. The sound is tinny and lacks any depth of bass. I wouldn't consider myself to be very knowledgeable about audio and its technical aspects, but even so it is clear to me that the quality is sufficient. The buds themselves are oddly blocky and old-fashioned to look at close-up.
Sound good, but failed shortly after warranty expired

Summary: I bought these to go with an iPhone, following quite a lot of research to get something better than Apple's standard earphones, though not too expensive. I was pleased with the sound, however just over year later the left side started dropping out intermittently and now that side doesn't work at all unless one is holding the cable in a certain position - clearly a broken wire inside. I think I will try another brand this time.
