Summary: I use the headphones mainly at work and on the go. These have a good deep bass sound and are great if you enjoy Jazz/Rock/Blues and the like. Probably not the best if you are a fan of electronic music. The headphones look great however are a bit larger when compared to some other in-ear products out there. As a result I wouldn't recommend these as your workout/run headphones. Overall it's a steal, as you probably won't find better sounding headphones for this price.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: I was looking for some compact headphones for use with my HTC EVO. I tried the Maximo iMetal iM590 and thought the sound was not bad, but 2 things bothered me. 1. They did not feel very comfortable and 2. There was a lot of noise from handling the cord on the ear phones. I think that the Woodies are one of those unique audio products that perform much better than how much it costs.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: Compared to the normal apple headphones, these have barely any bass. Otherwise the sound is fairly crisp. In terms of quality, I found mine to be very fragile and I am already replacing them since I keep losing sound in the right earbud. (seems to be the Y splitter). I wouldn't buy these again.
The Woodees in ear monitors are very capable performers, wooden housings or not.

Summary: Prelude Wood has long been used in the manufacturing of musical instruments because of its acoustic properties. One application of wood that has failed to really take off is in the world of in ear monitors. Sure, there are a few well known IEMs that have been crafted out of wood but the IEM market is thoroughly dominated by plastics and metal.
Summary: I've gone through multiple earplugs in recent years, and these are by far, the tops for solid, rich sound at this price. The noise canceling is outstanding and I've even just used them as earplugs on flights for when I want to sleep. I recently forgot them on a trip and purchased a cheaper pair at the airport. The difference is enormous.
Summary: Plugged these beautiful looking earbuds into my iPod and had to reset all my Equaliser settings. I am very fussy with my audio and always find fault in most speakers or systems, but when worn correctly these earbuds produce an excellent sound that is realistic and amazingly clear, with clean base and crisp, clear highs. I hear things in my oldest and most listened to music that I have never heard before and I am re-enjoying some of my oldest favorites!
Great headphones - glad I bought these and not something more expensive

Summary: I definitely tried some more expensive headphones, such as these: Etymotic Research ER6i Isolator In-Ear Earphones (White) , which were complete junk compared to these Woodee's. The Woodee's have a nice bass tone that scales well with the volume. So if you have them turned down low the bass is subtle, but when I turn them up you definitely feel more of a punch.
Impressive sound & fit - Much better than plastic earbuds

Summary: I received these earbuds as a gift and was skeptical at first considering that I already owned a set of high end ($200+) in-ears but after using them I was thoroughly impressed with the sound quality. The music is warm and rich and does not have the horrible "tinny" and harsh tones that come from earbuds like the ones included with iPods, especially as the volume is increased.
Summary: You don't have to be into natural, organic products to appreciate the excellence of the sound these are capable of putting out. The bass has the resonance of a large wooden cabinet in a component high fidelity system--the depth, the bottomless yet palpable richness of the sound, if not due in great measure to the wood, is at the very least testimony to the suggestive powers of wood to the mind, which in turn telegraphs the message to the human ear.
