Summary: After wearing them more and more, the discomfort is gone, I guess my ears just had to adjust the these bad boys. Highly recommended!
Pros: Sound quality is very good, bass is deep and clean, midrange and highs are clear and overall sound is encompassing and immersive. Build quality seems very good (thanks you crafty Swedes!), I like the cord material, the phone control button works on my android (kitkat) to play/pause and answer/end...
Cons: While the earpiece fits very well, I initially had some discomfort after an hour or 2 of wearing them, not in my ear canal, but the surrounding area where these earpieces fit. Also they protrude somewhat, so lying down head sideways on a pillow will knock them out of your ear.
Summary: These fit nicely and stay put. The sound is great and the bass is better than I expected. A very smart design that keeps tangling to a minimum. Ruggedly construted. *The color of the product REI has provided seems a bit off to my eyes. They're closer to pink than they are red. See attached image.
Summary: Considering the price and the reviews, expectations were good. However, the sound quality was poor, but more notably, the volume was terrible and it was actually difficult to hear much at all. When compared to my bog-standard Sony EX in-ear headphones, the comparison was painfully evident.
Summary: I had the urban ears bagis before these and they were way better. The headphones lack bass so badly it's not even a joke. You can push them in with your fingers and the bass becomes acceptable. The sound quality is on par with the Apple EarPods.
