Pros Awsome Bass. Clear Sound. So Stylish
Cons Wish it had a mic for my iPhone
Summary If what you are looking for is a set of earphones with the ear bud style the Atomic Bass are fantastic. The level of bass produced by the small earbuds is more impressive than many much larger sets of headphones I have used.
The Atomic Bass are certainly one of the best sounding sets of earphones that I have tried and give my iPhone music some serious bass, which I like. I would like to see a set of these with a mic built-in for use with the iPhone for making and receiving calls.
I picked up mine from amazon:
Pros Great bass. Several sizes ear inserts included. Lifetime warranty with very good customer support. My first pair shorted out after 4 months; Radius sent me a new pair quickly.
Cons My first pair of Atomic Bass earbuds shorted out after just a few months. I use them for running, so maybe CNet's comment about the thin cord being not very durable is right.
Summary If you really like bass and reasonable mid and upper ranges, I don't think there is a better earbud for the money. The lifetime warranty is important because these like all earbuds will eventually fail, and it will probably be sooner rather than later. Radius was very nice about replacing them. They responded to my e-mails quickly and made returning them very easy (no need for original packaging). For the money, I don't think you can find a better earbud, and I've owned lots of pairs.
Pros Great sound and looks good
Cons Didn't feel the "atomic bass". Not durable. Some sort of case would've been nice
Summary I purchased mine on Amazon several weeks ago. Just yesterday the wired end that connects in to the left earbud broke, cutting a few of the wires in the process. I guess it was the way I was holding it to push it in my ear that did it. Luckily there's a lifetime warranty that (I hope!) covers that. If anyone has experience with warranties and such I'd like to hear from you. Beside that fact...
The Radius 'phones sound great for that price range. I like that they're made of the same metal used in iPods, which doesn't make them feel cheap whatsoever. I owned a pair of Creative EP-630s before these (which also broke down on me after a year and a half). Compared to those the EP's sounded a tad bit better and were more easy to manage. The Atomic Bass headphones tangled in my pocket very easily due to the different lengths of the cables. The included ear caps (med.) didn't fit my ears as well as I would've hoped. These 'phones also didn't have block sound as much as I hoped, which may have caused the sound to not sound as good.
Overall I like these headphones. If you're looking for cheap eadbuds, this is where to go. (If you're reaaaally cheap like me though, then I'd suggest the EP-630's.)
Pros Great bass, good sound quality, fits well
Cons Vocals a bit muffled at times, cable always was tangled, and they weren't durable.
Summary Overall good sound quality with great bass, but they fell apart after a couple months. The ear cups always were falling off and I had to replace them often.
Pros good bass
good overall sound
Cons skinny wire gets tangled easily
wire not securely (enough) fastened to earphones, mine pulled out and i wasn't what i would consider even slightly abusive.
Summary I got them for $20 on Amazon. They lasted a few months. If you're going to use them for working out, consider them to be disposable after a while. Otherwise, plan on taking pristine care of them.
