  • Summary: I was looking for a set of earphones for iPOD listening during my daily commutes. I compared the UM1s with similarly priced earphones and found these to have the best bass response and overall quality. After about 3 months of daily listening, I still craved more bass and upgraded to the UM2s.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, small and light
  • Cons: Bass could be stronger
