3 out of 5 eggsNot bad, but problem in technical problem.

Pros: Good quality sound and beautiful design.

Cons: Extension line is than long, and constantly broken.
I bought this two times when it for sale, but the extension line is broken and broken... I just used for two months...

Technically, BA100 is not well designed earphone.
TDK think about this again.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good buds

Pros: I like these buds!

Very nice crips highs.

Very comfortable and do a good job canceling noise.

Cons: If you like a lot of base, you might not like these buds.

Pretty expensive if you don't pick them up on sale.

Other Thoughts: I was not impressed at first but once I hooked them up to my phone with a portable amp, they were able to shine.

I have numerous pairs of mid to highend buds and headphones.

1 out of 5 eggsTDK headphones

Pros: works ok

Cons: Cord is cumbersome while walking, causing feedback noise from bouncing. Left earplug quit after 6 weeks of normal to medium use. Right one starting to give out. Weak cord. Useless unless you only have one earhole that works.

Other Thoughts: I would have been upset if bought at full price. Have not contacted tdk or newegg. Would like to return or get new ones that would hold up longer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound!!

Pros: I love the balanced sound of this IEM. Comply eartips are great as well for isolating noise. Flat cable is a plus. Great price for 40 bucks.

Cons: Short cable but not a problem.

Other Thoughts: People gotta remember that this is not your typical bassy portable earphone like Beats. This IEM is more for monitoring with flat sound and it needs an amp or EQ adjustment to sound really good. I use this with FiiO E10 and it sound great. PLEASE stop comparing this to beats because they're two different types of earphones. I am not an audiophile but I do appreciate good sound. I would highly recommend this IEM if you can get it for $40-60.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat pair of Headphones

Pros: Great Sound quality. Comes with many options for different sized ear plugs. Has Decent bass. Would Definitely recommend

Cons: Not really any cons other than the fact that you basically have to use the cord extender that it comes with otherwise you'd have to keep whatever device you're using the headphones with really close to you. Not too big of a deal though

Other Thoughts: If you want a really nice pair of In-Ear Headphones, I would highly recommend buying these

4 out of 5 eggsvery good value when on sale

Pros: Well made and provided with an array of ear plugs in various materials and sizes. The 'short' cord is not really an issue, could be considered a feature, especially if you're using these with the Sansa Clip+, which can sit high up on a lapel or in a shirt pocket. The extension cord is fine if you need longer.

Cons: The previous reviewer is correct, these are very heavy on the mid range, and light on treble. The good news is, that can be fixed fairly easily with equalization, by bumping the
What you get is a very smooth and detailed sound. ZERO sibilance and unwanted artifacts, you could listen to these for hours without any strain. 4k and 12k ranges up 3-4 dB. (Did this with Rockboxed Sansa Clip)

Other Thoughts: I usually don't like to pay big bucks for earphones as they break too easily. At list price, these would not be value, but if they go on sale for <$60 again, grab a pair.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat sound if you tweak

Pros: I like the design, I don't feel the cords are too long or short, easy to distinguish left from right, no tangling, sound quality is better than standard or what would be considered 'good'. $44 with new egg promo.

Cons: The mids are way too much. Like the last TDK pair I owned, the shell surrounding the drivers is a hard thin plastic that may crack if you have an accident - I cracked my last pair, and I don't even know how, but I was able to glue it back together. I've never broken a pair of earbuds before. I am just pointing this out because this pair appears to have the same plastic hollow shell that surrounds the drivers.

Other Thoughts: If you don't have the ability to tweak the mids on your sound device, I doubt you will be able to get these to sound 'great'. Aside from being a software engineer, I produce my own music and have a sophisticated digital recording studio, so believe me when i say, these will only sound as good as the equipment they are used with. These are the 'Professional' line of TDK in ear products, and I did put quite a bit of effort to EQ the power amp player on my galaxy skyrocket in order to have the highs be crisp enough. The mids are insanely high and on a ten band EQ they (the mids) need to sit at least 2 clicks below flat, with the 1k to 4k range up slightly, and then way up on the 16k freq. Go easy on the bass as well (30hz - 125hz. All in all, if you have a good ear and patience, these can sound really good

5 out of 5 eggsBest in the price range

Pros: Good sound quality, rounded basses, clean vocals, solidly build, good looking, great price, good noise cancelling

Cons: You have to be accurate with memory foam pieces.

Other Thoughts: For people who complain about basses - you have equalizer, right? You can always adjust bass or any other range to you own taste. Those can provide really punchy and rounded bass if you want to. Otherwise you can pay 3 times as much and buy headwoofers by Dre. For short cable - it becomes extremely handy if you wear suits or sportcoats.
For 50$-70$ is complete steal.
