Great Comfort - Decent Sound

Adam A., Newegg
2 February 2013
  • Summary: If they were cheaper, I would happily buy a new set just to get the foam-inserts replaced. I am currently trying to find a way just to replace those pieces. Even though the casings broke (from pulling them in and out of my ear over time), the super glue fixed them without a hitch. So, now I just want new foam inserts so I can wear them again.
  • Pros: The comfort level is A+. I was able to wear these for hours and hours without any problems. If I had the foam inserts on, the bass was outstanding and outside sounds were 90% blocked. The mids and highs were there, but not outstanding. I was happy with all three, though. I wear these for hours and hours, both in a very noisy work environment and while jogging: both have zero problems.
  • Cons: Both casings (the part the holds the speakers and wiring together) have broken, but were repaired with super glue. The memory foam ear-buds have completed disintegrated over time. The memory foam buds are what MADE these. They are what made the bass so rich and the comfort levels exceed, but now they are gone and I am looking for near buds. They do generate noise through the chord, but it is negated when the volume is up past mid-range.

Good sound - questionable construction.

Adam B., Newegg
20 September 2012
  • Summary: These do not sound as good as my high-end circumaural headphones when driven by an amp. But, they sound great in mp3 players and such - especially if you like to hear the low end in your music. I got these on sale for ~$22. I'd easily buy them again at that price. The pros definitely outweigh the cons.
  • Pros: -Good balanced sound for most devices -Super-comfortable -Braided rope-like fabric cord cuts down on a lot of the noise normally heard when plastic cords rub against something (you still hear noise, just not as much in my opinion) -Comes with a little travel bag
  • Cons: One of the ear buds came apart at the plastic seam. I had to glue it back together. There's just no excuse for that. (-1 egg) Also, the foam on one of the ear buds is starting to tear a little. I don't abuse these at all. I'm trying to find a replacement set of foam pads to purchase.(-1 egg)

Broke & no help

Jordan B., Newegg
20 March 2012
  • Summary: This is an updated review after trying to contact TDK for support for the pair I purchased. Bought these because they were on sale for a good price. After a few days use one ear stopped working and upon inspection found that the fabric wrapping the cord to one of the ears had freyed and ruined them.
  • Pros: Decent sound, comfortable in the ear.
  • Cons: Flimsey fabric cord wrapping frays easily and ruins headphones, customer service non-existent.

Decent sound TERRIBLE quality

Nahalem, CNET
20 March 2012
  • Summary: Purchased these because they were on sale at NewEgg, and less than a week into using them the cheap fabric insulation on one of the cords frayed through and no longer works. Contacted TDK for support and received ABSOLUTELY NO RESPONSE. Sad thing is the sound was actually decent and I liked the foam ear pieces because they were comfortable and did not feel like they were going to come loose when exercising.
  • Pros: Good sound, foam earpieces are soft and secure.
  • Cons: Cheap quality. Broke in less than a week. Non-existent support.

Not bad...

NICK R., Newegg
16 March 2012
  • Summary: The comfort of this set makes it worth the price, as they are very comfortable and i sometimes forget i even have them on. If your an audiophile though and looking for Great sound quality I suggest looking elsewhere. I give this set a 6 of 10 on sound quality but a 10/10 on comfort!
  • Pros: These have got to be the most comfortable ear buds I have ever owned. I love the foam design. So much better than the standard rubber ear buds that normally come in a set. Very comfortable and they block out background noise very well.
  • Cons: Sound Quality is OK. I was hoping for a little better sound quality but I guess I just got spoiled with my iLuv's and iBeats. I bought a set of iLuv's from newegg last year and the quality of those are far superior to this. This set has good bass, but the high's aren't great and overall has a pretty flat sound.

Broke in less than a week...

Jordan B., Newegg
11 March 2012
  • Pros: Decent sound. Nice feeling in the ears.
  • Cons: One of the cords to the earbud frayed and no longer works. This happened in less than a week of ownership with basic usage. Would actually be decent headphones but now I have a $$$ set of useless earbuds.

Very niceee

Aletena S., Newegg
8 March 2012
  • Summary: seeing as how these headphones were 100 buks at one point, the price now seems to be worth it
  • Pros: The memory foam is an ingenious idea that transmits the bass well, cancel outside sound, and is actually quite comfortable! the rope meshy wire shows that the headphones are of good quality, also seems to make the wire more durable too.
  • Cons: not sure because you can't complain for the price!!

User Review

Mauro A., Newegg
6 March 2012
  • Pros: I bought these buds because I read they were a bit heavy on the bass. I tested these against my Mee Electronics M6-BK's and I feel that the bass has a bit more kick but only by the slightest. The sound in general is pretty good, the build is sturdy, the cord is durable, and the memory foam is comfortable. I bought these on sell for $20 dollars and they're well worth it. If you can get them on sale for cheap I say definitely pick them up. I'm not an audiophile and my h...
  • Cons: Only thing I can think of is that they're a little bulky. I wear a beanie and it knocks the ear buds loose whenever I adjust it. I doubt it'll be a problem for others.

Very Nice Headphone 5 EGGS!

Alvin H., Newegg
2 March 2012
  • Pros: These are far better than I imagined. wrapped cord, the nice snug ear design similar to a compression type foam earplug. Sounds very accurate, bass, cymbals have nice definition. I'm a headphone snob and they are up there in my top 3 ear buds ever.
  • Cons: none

The best noise suppression idea!

Robert C., Newegg
2 January 2012
  • Pros: I surprised nobody else came with with the memory foam idea. It really blocks out external noise much better than the silicone or rubber ones. You can barely hear keys, if you shake it in front of you.
  • Cons: of course, highly effective noise suppression could be considered a con to some (e.g. being run over without hearing it coming). Now, I need someone to figure out how to cancel the noise coming from the cord when it rubs against something.
