1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your money

Pros: they were good at blocking outside sound- for the short period that they ACTUALLY worked

Cons: the earbud was way too long and wide for my ears- I wear earbuds all the time and I've never had such a problem with them falling out. the options of replacements didn't change the fit any either. On top of the horrible fit, after using the earbuds for barely over a month the sound randomly faded to this gargled shower sound with no bass.

Other Thoughts: complete waste of money, and not eligible for return.

1 out of 5 eggsAthletes beware

Pros: Sound quality
They worked....at first

Cons: I am a long distance runner. These earbuds do not handle sweat.
After just one week, the sound stopped working in one ear.
Too much bass - I use an EQ on my phone just so that I can reduce the bass

Other Thoughts: With so many brands to choose from, I highly recommend that you do not buy these, and that you choose another brand, as I will with my next purchase, which, thanks to the poor quality of these, is much sooner that I had anticipated.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible for athletes

Pros: Sound quality.

Cons: I am a long distance runner. Within the first week of use, they started defecting. A Minor amount of sweat and use is enough to affect and damage sound quality. The audio is cutting in and out. I cannot get clear sound through both earbuds after only a week of use. I have owned many earbuds, and these are by FAR the worst. Don't be fooled by the "sale" price; these are garbage.

Too much bass

Other Thoughts: Buy another pair of earphones. There are so many earbuds to choose from, so take my warning...stay away from these.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent product

Pros: Multiple types of ear cushion designs(not just 3 sizes)
great bass
long cord
excellent overall sound quality

Cons: bass may be a tad much for some

volume can get changed pretty easily if you brush against something

the foam type plugs block a lot of sound but the design still lets some wind noises in if it hits you in the right direction

Other Thoughts: The ones I had did end up breaking from the cord coming out at the point where it meets the volume control but I believe it was more about just hitting it constantly since I was using it at work, getting another pair anyway.

4 out of 5 eggsGood bass, good fit

Pros: Very good bass (almost a little overpowering), good fit, very long cord so you can use it with players in your pants pocket if needed. Good value when on sale.

Cons: The bass is a little over-powering.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing quility effective and affordable! bang for your buck

Pros: I wouldn't complain about anything with these earphones. Their effective blocking all sounds couldn't even hear my mom beeping at me when I was waiting for her. She was actually trying to get my attention for like 5-19 minutes until some student waved at me and got my attention. They are loud but clear! I feel very happy with my purchase and will enjoy my experience with them! Get them while their hot! Worth every penny :)

Cons: Absolutely none
