Good sound & prompt shipping. Good deal!
Great value for what I paid12/23/2011
These may not be the best earphones money can buy, but for the $9.99 I paid, I think they sound fantastic. The other reviewers are absolutely right - what a huge difference it made changing to the medium ear tips! Much deeper and richer bass, although not quite as comfortable as the smaller tips were. I'm listening to Seether right now and it sounds great.
Excellent vocals and high frequencies7/29/2011
As the other reviewer correctly points out, these earbuds come with the smallest rubber eartips which produce very weak (but accurate) bass. Switching to the medium rubber eartips creates stronger bass, but still weaker than other earbuds I own. I also bought these on sale and consider them to be a great value. They are not the best or most comfortable earbuds I own, but certainly have an impressive sound for the money.
When I first got these, I thought they sounded terrible. They had absolutely no bass. But I realized that they came with the smallest sized ear buds installed when I got them, they were too small for my ears. I installed the middle sized earbuds and the bass almost magically appeared. I think these are some of the best sounded buds I have bought yet to date. I bought them when they were on sale for $10, an added bonus. I think they were worth it.
