3 out of 5 eggsDecent sound, don't spend more than $30

Pros: Acceptable sound
Decent lifespan

Cons: Highs were a little tinny
Right headphone went kaput after 2 years of use

Other Thoughts: Wow, the MSRP on these was $70? I paid $28 - must have been my lucky day. These were decent headphones - I refuse to spend more than $30 on a pair since I use my headphones in the gym and while mowing the lawn. They lasted almost a full 2 years before the right ear piece lost sound, and overall they were serviceable during that entire time, so 3/5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsBest value earphones (IMO)

Pros: Lots of bass, but not overpowering
Highs are crisp

Cons: None at the moment

Other Thoughts: I would have bought some Bose earphones, but they were overpriced and I bet they sound as good as these ^.^

5 out of 5 eggsgreat for commuting

Pros: These are great headphones for my daily commute. The subway is incredibly loud and the noise isolating earbuds help shut out the noise and allow you to play the music at a lower volume.

Cons: none so far

4 out of 5 eggsGood value

Pros: Produces good amount of sound
Blocks out a high amount of noise
In-line volume controls
Price

Cons: Sounds tinny at high volume

Other Thoughts: For $25, you really can't go wrong with these. I needed headphones for the gym and wasn't willing to spend an arm and a leg for something that could very well wind up broken. I'm impressed with the amount of noise the block out and amount of sound they produce. The only downside is that cranking up the volume too much results in the high end getting tinny, but that could also be because of the "Beats by Dre" amplification system on my phone.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but not $69.99 good

Pros: Great audio and the rubber fits so well that it does help block outside noise. The volume control is also really nice.

Cons: I got it for $15 during a clearance...so I'm very happy. However I can't imagine paying $69 for it. That's pretty crazy.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat little earbuds

Pros: They fit the ear great, and come with 3 different size rubber adapters just in case they don't fit out of the box. They dampen enough sound to make listening comfortable. For what I paid, they're terrific

Cons: can't think of one

2 out of 5 eggsCheap parts

Pros: Better sound quality compared to skull candy headphones that I find in retail stores nearby at around the same price.
Looong Cable.

Cons: The sound from the right was weaker than the sound from the left. However, that was all solved by another problem haha.
Made of very cheap plastic, the front half of the right ear-bud broke off when I fell to my right (it was in the front pocket). It cannot be put back together and the sound is almost completely gone from that side.

Other Thoughts: Warranty doesn't cover the anything from the cons section from what I've read on their product website, oh well.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound... when your not moving

Pros: Decent bass, Decent sound, trusted name, and looks like good build quality in this price range. Only paid $18 free shipping, and would have paid $30.
They feel pretty comfy in my ears. Come with 3 sizes of the ear plugs, using the medium ones.

Cons: The cord is loud. Any slight movement and you hear banging, rubbing, and squeaking. I've had a slightly higher end pair of sennheiser's before, and their cord wasn't loud when I even jogged. I can't imagine jogging with these unless I was playing them extremely loud, which could be a safety issue.
The very thin cord can get tangled very easily. The volume control is pretty much just a mute on/off.

Other Thoughts: Great quality for the money, but somewhat wish I just spent more on some higher end sennheiser's, since I was already familiar with that level of preformance. My bad

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Great in-ear headphones for the price. I got them when they were at sale for $17 and they are great for the price. The build quality is pretty darn good and they fit in my ears very snugly... I am not even trying to listen hard but I can hear much much better tone and clarity and my music is now... Now i am already getting a bug to get the Sennheiser HD600... that is a lot more expensive but I am sure it will meet all my needs nicely :D :D

Cons: for the price, you gotta be kidding me to have any con

Other Thoughts: none at the moment
