"Ok - they create sound ... But its not great"2.5 starson by mdpmarch
Pros: Small and compact - Carry Case - 3 size buds - fits in ear - blocks out noise
Cons: Sound quality - has a "tinny" noise - little bass
Summary: These are ok headphones for an airplane where you need to block out noise, but for normal situations, its not that great. I believe the reason is the physical size of the speaker. When you take the cover off the speaker (the rubber earbud)you will find that the speaker itself is only about 4 mm wide compared to about 15 or 20 mm on normal headphones. I think that it just can't produce enough bass, and the sound isn't clear. This may be my own ears, but when I place them in my ear, no matter what size rubber earbuds I put on it, if I tilt the earphones down a bit in my ear, like towards my ear drom, the sound sounds a little better, but not much. The earbuds that come with the zune are uncomfortable and hurt a bit, but the sound is much better in my opinion.
