1 out of 5 eggsI hate them

Pros: Inexpensive, comes with extra foam earbuds, long cable, 90 degree bend at the input, microphone and button works well with pleasant tactile response

Cons: Poor sound quality, poor sound isolation, the earbud foam gets as gross as a pair of earplugs, they are too large to fit under a motorcycle helmet, the cord is rather inflexible and takes on shapes and creases easily

Talk to anyone who wears earplugs in a professional manner about why they are disposable, and you will understand why foam is a poor choice for earbud material.

Other Thoughts: I had purchased these to replace a pair of {competitor} headphones whose microphone had stopped working. I used these headphones for two months, then tried the broken {competitor} headphones again, and found them to be delightful in comparison to these.

My regret is that they absorbed too much earwax for me to return them and feel okay with it.

{competitor} = 1 price

5 out of 5 eggsLove These Earbuds

Pros: comfortable, great sound

best sound quality of Sony, Klipsch, S0L Republic, equal to or better than Bose.

Buy these.

Cons: packaging, cord material

Other Thoughts: I had a pair of Koss earbuds for several years until a wire finally began to short out. In a quest to replace them, I thought I would try something new because I assumed that earbud technology had come a long way and I just wanted to try something different.

I bought Sony. The sound quality was awful compared to what I was used to. So, I decided to try a pair of Klipsch earbuds from Newegg. You can't go wrong with Klipsch can you? In fact, you can. Those were the worst earbuds I tried. You can find my review on them on Newegg.

Next I decided to try Bose earbuds and Koss headphones (you know, the kind that clamp on your head) that I purchased locally. The Koss sounded great, but I wear these many hours per week because I use them to block out background noise at work. I couldn't deal with that clamping all day and the heat build up. Also, ever seen "hat head"? Well, I got "headphone head". The Bose sounded fine. They weren't real comfortable. And, they had one major flaw for me, they didn't block out background noise. That was a deal killer for me.

Next, on the recommendation of a friend, I tried S0L Republic. Mistake. They fit horribly and didn't sound good at all. They suffered the same critical flaw that the Klipsch suffered from, too. The sound from bumping or rubbing the cord travels straight to the ear drum.

So, I went back to wearing the Sony's, and compared to all of these other purchase, I decided that they didn't sound "that bad". Never the less, I ordered the Koss earbuds from Newegg (the ones I am reviewing today). After wearing the Sony earbuds while waiting for the Koss to come in, I started thinking that I should have just stuck with the Sony's. They really aren't "that bad". The Sony's are light and comfortable. They just lack great sound quality.

Finally, the Koss arrived. I am trying them for the first time as I type this review. Well, now I understand why the Sony's sounded so poor when I first tried them. The Koss blow them away. Of all of the earbuds that I have tried, the Koss have the best sound and are the most comfortable.

The only thing that I like more about the Sony earbuds is the material that the cord is made from. The material that the Koss is made from seems to be more like the Klipsch, which I don't like (find that review on Newegg). But, the Koss seem to be more immune to the problem, possibly because the foam pieces that fit in the ear do not transmit the sound generated when bumping or rubbing the cord. Or, maybe the material is slightly different and less susceptible to transmitting noise.

The bottom line is that these headphones have the richest fullest range of sound that I have experienced. If I'm not mistaken, they sound better than the first pair of Koss that I owned and was looking to replace.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Sound Quality

Pros: none, only the price

Cons: I took it out of the packaging immediately and tried it with my galaxy S3 music player.. the sound was horrible and then I tried switching to different playing types in the sound settings..the sound was just too tinny...I put my earplugs in that came with the galaxy S3 and it was 10 times better in quality..I wanted a set of earplugs that would not keep falling out of my right ear thinking that because of the Pathfinders different spongy design that this would be better...and it would of been if it wasnt for the sound.

Other Thoughts: The price was right but for the same price Newegg has seinhauser earbuds often in their 24 hour deals with excellent sound quality
