"Good First Impression"on by sjkfl
Pros Yes, it does deliver strong bass, even when my iPod Touch EQ was set to "none".
Cons A zippered pouch would have been nicer than a cloth drawstring bag.
Summary The packaging is easy to open. I have not tried using the cord adjuster yet, but I do have a use for it.After using these headphones for a few days, I'd say that they sound better when I use the "Treble Boost" EQ setting on my iPod Touch. But they sound fine to me.
I just bought this item based on CNet's review. As I use it more in the next few days I'll update my review, if CNet will allow me.

The cord adjuster works fine. Less cord to get in the way.
They fit snugly in my ears. The only issue I've found, and this may be common to all headphones of this style, is that when there is a breeze passing across my ears, I hear a whistling sound.
Pros Good sound
Cons None to speak of
Summary I bought these headphones at an airport when my other ones officially blew out, and I have to say, I'm quite pleased with them. I was initially expecting these to be only barely better than the free ones on the flight (not the cool Biz class Bose ones), but they provided some sound isolation, and the sound quality was a pleasant surprise.
Pros The sound quality is excellent and i do like the fact that it cuts out noise and has an on cord volume adjuster.
Cons I have bought three sets of these headphones, and every time they have broken. The left bud always dies leaving you with little to no bass. The only repair option ends up costing more that they did originally since you have to replace all the wiring insid
Summary These are a massive disappointment. I was a fan of the at first, but for all three sets to break within eight months is pitiful. They are good while they last, but that is not long, and i buy things which i expect to last.
Pros Cuts out wind noise, especially for shorty helmets. love the volume control where I can reach it safely
Cons does muffle the ride some. Have to watch the volume
Summary I just purchased these yesterday and "BOY" what a difference from the $10 Phillips over the ear buds I was using. Now I can wear my sun glasses and not have to worry about loosing my ear buds. I just finished a 200 mile round trip run and listened to my music the whole time. I really don't like the "Muffled sound I get from the "outside" noise, but I can get used to it. Kind of like wearing ear plugs when my old bike had screaming eagle pipes on it.
But I love the clarity of the music compared to the Phillips ear buds I was using.
Hope it works well for my 3/4 and full face helmets without pulling out
Pros GREAT SOUND QUALITY! I wanted something very chill that picked up the bass, and these buds do a great job of doing that. I also love the volume switch on the cord, come in handy.
Cons none yet/ so far so good
Summary Great sound quality for the l-o! The come with three different bud sizes, a cord adjuster, and a carrying pouch. GREAT BUY!
