"Light, Good Sound, noise cancelling, built-in volume control on cord"3.5 starson by bud.davis
Pros: Light, comfortable, good sound, single cord with volume control, lifetime warranty
Cons: None that I've found
Summary: As I'm not an audio expert, I can only state a subjective, personal opinion. I only purchased them to use around the house to use with my small MP3 player. The earbuds that came with the player I use primarily for portability when on the run for various errands. I find the QZPro comfortable to wear and are light weight. The sound is good and the noise cancelling is adaquate especially since I didn't actively go seeking that feature figuring I'd have to spend a couple to three hundred dollars to buy quality noise cancelling.
I considered the Koss PortaPro and the reviews were great but one comment caught my eye so I went to the store and tried a set on. It was true, the PortPro had a tendency to pull your hair out by the roots when removing them. Could be I just didn't have the knack but it was enough to make me start looking for an alternative.
Anyway, after using an on-line coupon and free shipping at Buy.com, I paid $35.00 for the set. At that price, I couldn't go wrong and so far, I've not been disappointed.
