"Great sound for under $75 and good quality"4.5 starson by at2099
Pros: Excellent sound and outside noise reduction.
Three sizes of silicone ear bud pieces for a personalized fit.
Sophisticated style and ample color choices for any user.
Cons: Lost silicone ear bud piece somewhere in my haste. But a 4 pair replacement is under $8, so I got some more.
Summary: First, the sound though these ear buds are crisp and clear at all ranges. For a consumer level product, this one of the tops. It will enhance your listening pleasure and mp3 usage (because of the comfort level). During a typical day in New York, the Vibes also block out outside noises such as car horns, sirens, construction, subway screeching, and my music plays clearly through.
The last comment I wanted to make is that the quality of this product was surprisingly good. After all of these comments about the cords fraying, wearing down, etc, I've had no problems after 9 months of daily use. The storage pouch it comes in holds and protects them well. I guess if the consumer carelessly throws them in a bag or a pocket, they would damage faster...
