"Absolutely essential for those on a budget."4.5 starson by swordknight
Pros: -Sparkly highs
-Sound is extremely full
-Bass is punchy and tight
-Sound is very 'airy'
-Cord is extremely durable
-Large amount of accessories and tips
Cons: -Sound is very fit-dependent
-Bass MAY be overpowering for some
-Can get messy on busier tracks
Summary: These earphones absolutely blow OEM's out of the water, and pretty much every single retail earphone for the price too (Skullcandy, Panasonic, etc). The bass is full and articulate, the highs are sparkly and detailed, as well as having a very airy sound. Mids are slightly recessed, but I personally like that. They're perfect for rock music because of how full the sound is, and also for rap and techno. They're pretty much great for every genre to be honest, because the bass has very minimal bleeding to mid/highs, unlike Beats Tours or Skullcandy's. I would personally go as far and say I'd pay a retail price of 40$ for them. The customer service is great as well! There's really no reason not to buy these if you're on a budget. The only nitpick is that the sound can get quite messy on tracks with many instruments and a lot of layering, but to be honest you can't find any better for the price.
