Innovative design locks into your ear using an internal ear-loop and pivoting ear-tip. No more tape, and no hassle with my helmet or glasses. This is a similar approach to the Bose IE2, but more seems more ergonomic and clearly designed for sports.
I was skeptical about these having some kind of flaw given the sale price vs the MSRP but there just aren't any. They sound phenominal. Only thing is I wish there would have been a color choice but for the price I can live with yellow.
ZERO issues with the Seller! Review is primarily of the product. What's Monster about these Ear-buds is the typical Monster brand hype, little more. With Bass at Max on my iPod they still sound a bit tinny - across the full range of ear tips and clips provided, which I'm sure someone will claim I didn't try - in fact I spent more than an hour trying nearly every configuration possible. Not a product I would recommend at this price, let alone the ridiculously Monstrous $180 MSRP. I can see why they dropped to $49, but it's still too high in my opinion. That said, if you like clear treble and low bass, you just might love them.
I was a bit skeptical about these monster headphones for $49.99 (72% savings). I like to save money who doesn't but I've learned the hard way that not all claims on the internet are as they appear. I had recently purchased some monster headphones for $100 (50% savings) from another web site only to be fooled as they turned out to be "Chinese knock offs". Needless to say when i saw this deal i had my doubts but after opening the package & trying them out, they truly are the real deal.
First of all, I have small ears. That said, I WAS able to fit the smallest ear cushions in the multiple choice package into my ears. I WAS NOT able to figure out how to use the extra attachments that were supposed to make the fit even snugger than usual.
The sound was great for my news program listening. Much better than the cheaper earphones I had been using.
Very nice. Enough different ear tips included to find a comfortable, tight seal. A-B compared them to another very highly rated set of earbuds (Klipsch S4i) and noticed these definitely had more extended low end output. Midrange and treble also very smooth and extended. Build quality looks good out of the box, long term durability will take time to tell.
I owned a pair of BOSE in ear for 5 yrs. Planning to go back to BOSE. Monster provides multiple ear pieces that will help give you best performance but bass performance does not compare to BOSE.
I was looking for some ear bud type headphones that also had phone capabilities and these certainly did the trick! What a great deal for these and they have performed beyond my expectations. They come with a wide variety of customization options to truly give you one of a kind fitting
This is the 2nd pair of headsets I bought from the iSport line. The first pair I bought was reason enough for me to buy a second pair. The only issue I have is that it doesn't have an in-line volume control, which means you have to control off your device. This sucks when you have your phone in a case (esp when running)! Other than that, the quality it great.
First of all, the whole "Live Strong" brand has gotten beat up badly since the downward fall of King Lance. However, these ear buds are fantastic. Top quality, high end product from Monster, they are every bit as good sounding as beats by Dr Dre, but I feel they are better construction. Great product for a fraction of the price due to their "Live Strong" brand association...but, besides the yellow color, there's very little, recognizable branding. Buy it, you'll be happy you did.
