Not real happy with these10/23/2013
The ear buds come in a very fancy box and look great but I am not real happy with them. I find them a little heavy in the ear. There are several different kinds of eartips that took a while to find a good set. The sound is good but not great and I have a cheaper set of buds that suppresses noise way better even thought neither said they would. Hind sight being 20/20 I would have like to try them somehow before I bought them. If I had it to do again I wouldn't . So let the buyer beware. Still looking for a good set looks as if I will need to fork over the excess money for Bose
Other than the color, I love the head set. The sound quality is very very good, with a clear but warm bass, and the mid-range and upper range is not sharp or metallic... love it. On top of that, lots of ear tips to choose from, and found the ones that fit my ears perfectly!
Great Sound,well made,11 ear tips options9/27/2013
The packing very nice,like a nice watch box. This has 11 sets of ear tips,and 2 cases,one smaller & a larger one. You have so many choices. The cord is flat,tangle free,nice!.All this is a plus.But it the sound that counts,to me.all I can say is GREAT.You get the Highs,that I like,plus Mids & the Bass,too. .If you only like bass these may not be for you. You have to fine the sweet spot.The other thing that makes a good earphone is good cords.you don't hear them if they rub against something.
Very clean sound9/2/2013
A very good experience with the packaging (you can search in youtube) especially the velvety case plus all the different earplugs for personal fitting (very comfy and don't come off). Sound is very good especially for vocal and certain instruments (without all those low end boom). Advice to look into some other types if you want heavy bass and low end. A real difference if you adjust the volume to above mid scale on iPhone/Mac (clean and thorough). The cord is free from all the scrapping noise as in other round string type cords. Excellent buy with all the latest promotions.
Great sound and for $60...great value for the price...
