Pros: Snug fit of Earbuds
Cons: Sound quality, cord tangles easily.
Summary: I bought these ear buds at best buy after my last pair died on me. Right out of the box, the cord wound up in a knot somehow, and even after i untangled it and wound it back up, it still managed to knot on me. The Cord material is like a fabric, and although it seems to be less prone to damage, it rubs against itself, and you can sometimes hear that vibration in the buds. Although the buds fit snugly in the ear, they tend to create a little bit of suction, and then the sound doesn't balance nicely, left to right. It takes some time to figure out where exactly to put them in your ear, so that the music is equally loud on both sides. Sound quality overall was very disappointing. My first impression was that they sounded very muddy. The highs were not crisp whatsoever, even with an equalizer preset of treble booster on my iPod. Middle frequencies were ok, and there wasn't enough bass to suit me. For roughly the same amount of money, i would go with the JVC marshmallows. They have more bass (not too much), and the highs are crisp and detailed.
