2 out of 5 eggsEven buying these on sale for 8 dollars I feel I wasted my money

Pros: Sound is pretty decent, but the design and discomfort kills it

Cons: Terrible design
Very unconformable fit
Fell apart after few weeks of use

Other Thoughts: Judging from the fact that I only spent 8 dollars and these and STILL do not think they are worth the bother, you should really think twice before buying them.

3 out of 5 eggsCheapo option - Good for backups

Pros: They were ocho dinero + free ship. They don't sound bad - in fact I thought they were decent to give a try, you just had to find the right placement for the bud to get the correct bass response but they do have bass as bass response is really relative to how well they fit in/to your ear.
The little carrying bag/satchel is nice as was the 1/8 to 1/8 extender.

Cons: First night out @ work wearing these the little black ring outer slip covering the bud slips off - first in my pocket and then while wearing - twice.
I sometimes have to pull these out of one ear while @ work to interact, sometimes I just wear one. The second time it just fell off and was not recovered as it could be anywhere I went - hassle.

If you lose slip ring and can't or don't desire to mod it, they're useless junk to be fixed unless you are of a sadistic mindset and like wearing uncomfortable buds, not to mention if your ear is even capable of supporting the now undersized buds.

Your options; consider super glue rings on or don't buy em. The product is metal and the stems unscrew from the bud to function as interchangeable? Initial advertising from the company product pictures made it seem you got interchangeable headphones for the 'one price' (as a package) and that it came complete to interchange to sleeve style bud as well - but these came with only one style - earb

Other Thoughts: I bought these as a backup and they failed to be considered continually wearable without a slight mod (gluing the rings on) on the first night out. Now I have to make a trip to the hobby store to find something to replace the outer slip/ring for the bud and its questionable as to whether the company would support a replacement as it seems its not an anticipated flaw.
So, you must consider a few slight mods out of the box to have them be reasonably sustainable for practical use. Glue the rings and the stems and forgo the interchangeability options- rant over.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst headphone ever

Pros: I got it when it was a shell shocker... So I didn't have to pay a lot for this junk.

Cons: Fell apart before first use. Rubber around the headphone fell off right after the package is opened. I put it back on and after 1 day of use, it use lost. After that, other parts of the head phone fell apart as well. It is not in the garbage.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good quality and strong performance. FOr the price when compared to the Shure and Bose that I have purchased of similar style these are a very good purchase and would highly recommend. Comfortable. Don't "pop-out" of your ears during exercise.

Cons: None at the price.

Other Thoughts: I purchased more expensive version for gym but was reluctant to be tossing them around and in/out of gym bag due to expense. These really fit the bill as a nice substitute where I would not wig out if broken or lost.
