Deceived by all the great reviews - Bad sound quality, tons of cable noise, poor design.

  • Summary: I bought these headphones to replace a pair of Velodyne vPulse in-ear headphones that I've used and loved for years. I accidentally broke my old pair so I needed a replacement, but didn't feel like spending as much money.

Left wanting more.

  • Summary: I decided to give these a try for a variety of tasks while on the road. The first thing I noticed was the incredible amount of noise transferred from the cord banging around or “micro-phonics.
  • Pros: - Decent passive noise isolation (I wouldn't call it noise cancellation because these aren't actively cancelling anything) thanks to the snug fit cups - Flat cord design prevents a lot of tangles and twists - Integrated microphone and control switch makes this a very versatile headset for two-way...
  • Cons: - HORRIBLE MICRO-PHONICS!! (This is the sound transmitted to your ear by mechanical vibrations when the headset cord is making contact with solid object) - Carry pouch is somewhat small. Have to cram the headset into the pouch which takes is fairly difficult unless you tie-wrap the cord first (no...

Great clarity and very good mic

Chris M., Newegg
19 August 2014
  • Summary: These headphones really shine for online gaming, and are great for video/audio conferencing. I've been using them at work on my laptop for video chat meetings, phone calls & online gaming during my lunch break. I've also used them with my phone for gaming and music and they're pretty awesome.
  • Pros: They have a very crisp sound, not overpowering in any specific range like some other earbuds & headphones. Various sized inserts make them adaptable to virtually any sized ear canal, and the memory foam inserts are AMAZING. They block out almost all sound, I'm unable to hear my phones ringing tha...
  • Cons: Although the audio is crisp, there isn't enough bass for listening to music with a heavy bass line (eg dubstep, techno, rap).

Good sound, comfortable, easy to untangle

Zach B., Newegg
18 August 2014
  • Summary: The addition of a carrying case is a nice touch. And, even though I find fault with the 'no tangly mess' claim, I found that when using the case the already low number of tangles were further reduced. These quickly became my daily headphones.
  • Pros: These produce great sound. I don't want to oversell this, as you can surely get better sound from more expensive over-ear headphones, but for its price range it is as at least as good as some of the expensive in-ear competitors and better than what comes with most phones. They are also very comfo...
  • Cons: The headset comes with a mute button for the microphone on the cord, and that's it. If a skip ahead/back button is a must-have then you'll need to look elsewhere.

Best I've ever used

Mark P., Newegg
17 August 2014
  • Summary: If you're looking for a nice headphone but hate using those big heavy "over the ears" models I would highly recommend these for you.
  • Pros: These earbuds or headset or whatever you call them are great in my opinion. I've never owned an expensive set of earbuds. I usually spend big money on "over the ear" headphones and these sound like I've got a really nice set of full size headphones on. Bass is very good...not subwoofer good but y...
  • Cons: I really can't think of anything bad to say about these. I guess I could say that it'd be nice if the cord was longer. My PC isn't sitting right in front of me so it was a stretch getting them from the floor to my ears. I assume most people would be using these with a smartphone or laptop and not...

Decent Sound

Zachary H., Newegg
12 August 2014
  • Summary: These are good mobile headphones. As I mentioned earlier, you can also use these for your PS4 game chat. The bass quality is not the greatest but it makes up for it with a clean sound in it, as well as a very rich mid range.
  • Pros: The sound is very good in the mids and highs. Its bass is detailed. The build quality feels very good, and the ear buds are very effective in passive noise isolation with its very tight and deep seal. Since it features a single connection mic + headphone jack, it will also work out of the box on ...
  • Cons: With such a deep and full seal with the ear buds, any subtle movement is very audible as vibration transfers along the cords into your ears. This can be distracting but can be alleviated by minimizing both tugging (when running) and rubbing on clothes.

I like these better than any others i've had

Zach P., Newegg
12 August 2014
  • Summary: Order yours today!
  • Pros: Sound is great! The packaging is nice. They have a great look. Works with a cell phone for calling. These get pretty loud, I have used a couple cheaper ones before that didn't get very loud. These don't seem to get tangled as easy as as a few others I have had over the years.. which is great as I...
  • Cons: None I have found so far...

Nice !!!

william r., Newegg
9 August 2014
  • Summary: For right around $50 I am on the fence; some of the Bluetooth headsets out there are right in the price range and give you that cord free feeling as they are cord free. If you don't like to worry about charging your headset and don't mind cables you will be happy with these.
  • Pros: I always try to review an item only after I have used it a lot and feel comfortable with it. I have got about one month now on these headphones and they did not blow me away but they did stand out. Skype was great with these the sound that my counterpart got from the mic was very very good and th...
  • Cons: The Mic mute button is small and a bit hard to push; when I was gaming I found that I had to look down to find the button sometimes because it is not raised enough on the dongle to find easily with my limited sense of touch. The non tangle flat cord is also something that just did not feel right ...

Ear buds

David N., Newegg
7 August 2014
  • Summary: Mic is next to your chin and not down at your chess, less need to hold it close to your mouth so other people can hear you. the Comply foam tips are memory foam and they are best used if your running with them as they help hold them end, but they block other sounds like bikers coming up behind you.
  • Pros: Different size ear tips + a set of the comply ear tips light weight over the ear guides cell / MP3 head plug & computer audio / mic plugs Ribbon cable. Over all good sound.
  • Cons: No ear wings, to help hold buds in your ear. had some popping when cable bounced after about 4 miles of running but not every time.

Not perfect, but the best I've used.

Zachary B., Newegg
5 August 2014
  • Summary: Overall great earbuds for the price, they just not meant for the more athletic of users. I now have two sets of earbuds, these for relaxing or working, and another older pair for my jogs.
  • Pros: These earbuds have great sound quality for their price, the vocals are clear, bass is nice, good mid and highs, etc. I can honestly say these are the best sounding earbuds I have personally used and will easily blow away any free pair you get with your smartphone! They certainly aren't top of the...
  • Cons: There's a "thumping" sound as others pointed out when the cord gets some movement, going out for a jog with these earbuds is basically impossible due to this issue. There is no way to skip or play a previous song on the earbuds. The mic obviously isn't studio quality, but I had complaints from pe...
