Good sound quality
Inline volume control
Cons Cord feels cheap
Summary I was upset when I broke my 50 dollar pair of Sony headphones (can't remember the model number, now discontinued though). I had them for 3 years and always bragged about the quality.
I needed something quick because of a long trip ahead of me. I bought these without doing a lot of research but was pleasantly surprised.
Not only is the sound great for the price, its great for any price. I don't use my mp3 player too much outside of my car, so it didn't warrant to buy an expensive pair.
Now I do know great sound quality when I hear it. I've spent thousands on a top of the line car audio system, and it really bothers me when my music sounds like garbage.
Great bass, warm mids, and sufficient highs. The highs only sounded a little weak when played through my computer and with a 10 band equalizer. If you have an iPod you definitely won't be able to notice any flaws. These headphones make your iPod's sub par sound quality sound good.
Also, these have an inline volume control. You'd be surprised how often this comes in handy. The cord adjuster is really useful too when you aren't using them. The thin wire tangles easily, but the cord wrapper eliminates that problem.
Finally these earbuds come with adjustable tips. The key to the nice bass (and restriction of outside noise) is a tight seal in your ear. I personally didn't find a problem with a tight seal (using the middle sized tips). They also have a smaller size, and larger size.
Don't think twice about these if you are on a budget and need a replacement pair!!
NOTE: I adjusted my rating out of 5 stars with the price in mind. For this price range you are not going to find a better pair of earbuds with these features and quality.
Pros absolutely, inexplicably, undeniably, unbelievably, **** all.
Cons i crank it up and the bass is non existent if i listen to rock i can only hear low frequency faint sounds that are supposed to be music if i listen to metal theres no muscle in anything THESE ******* THINGS BLOW MY ASS IM BURNING THEM AS I TYPE THIS
Summary if you like these at all youre ******* stupid if you buy these, you will hate your life. i was so mad i made a kijiji ad trying to immediately re-sell them
"Decent Headphones"on by mitchbert
Pros Super comfortable, Generally good sound, Useful in-line remote
Cons Too much treble. I had to set my iPod/iPhone to treble reducer to ensure that all of the really high frequencies that resulted in a sharp tinny sound weren't coming through.
Summary I was excited when I lost these so I could replace them. I like headphones that naturally trend towards lower tones. The listening experience without the treble reduced was reminiscent of sitting to close to the high hat symbol in high school band :P
Pros Price was right.
Cons Volume sux.
Earpiece won't stay in ear.
Summary I bought these to use when exercising. The earpiece kept popping out even when just walking. Loudness is also pretty poor. Even when both my ipod volume and the headphone volume was maxed, the music was still pretty quiet.
You can't rock out with these.
Pros Good bass for ear buds. They still sound good when played at higher volumes. When playing music, sound doesn't bleed out so no one else hears them. Sound isolation is great when listening to music.
Very comfortable with correct size earpiece
Cons Cheap cord and housing.
Summary Great headphones for listening to music on, but not the most durable headphones on the market. They sound good and they are comfortable over hours of listening.
