Pros: Comfortable Fit

Excellent use when traveling
Excellent when used with a smartphone
Cons: Cable management
Summary: When your looking at some of the other buds on the market these are perfect!
The "cheapie's" that come with a mp3 player or smartphone break easily and are uncomfortable.
The "uber expensive" are pretty much overhyped - why spend +$150 for an earbud? At that level, get a studio quality over ear headphone.
The "Smokin' Buds" - ARE EXCELLENT! a price range from $19 - $30 are perfect. I purchased ($32 w/ tax) these from the AT&T store (and I use them for my Verizon Wireless Motorola Droid).
These are the Mic'd and have a controller on the left ear bud to pause the music/and take an incoming call, or speak-txt message.
It came with a 3 pairs different size gel covers and a small pouch. Very comfortable, my ipod earbuds hurt like hell, and the ones that came with my crapberry were god awefull.
Sound Quality - Isolates Noise! I use these on the Motorola Droid and the sound quality rocks. I also tested the sound quality on my iMac both through the external output headphone port, as well as through my external USB audio interface (tascam mk2) The sound quality is just the same as using the over the ear studio quality headphones.
My only qualm is that I would have liked to have a case that can properly hold the gel covers and a proper cable management system for the buds.
