1 out of 5 eggsPoor quality

Pros: Nice box

Cons: Bought three, as they were cheap. Used one, gave the other two to family members. One pair was defective out of the box (intermittent sound in left earpiece). One more died after three months. Still waiting for replacement from Soul Electronics.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Headphones for an excellent price

Pros: - clear highs
- strong base
- high quality music
- clear sound
- durable build
- comfortable fit
- very effective sound isolation

Cons: - heavy (bad for workouts)
- earphones sit loosely in ear
- sit a little oddly at first

Other Thoughts: Overall, these are by far the best headphones I've had, in-ear or over-ear. I recently started looking to get new over-ear phones and tried out a lot to try to find sound quality that match these. I have tried everything from beats to bose and have yet to find ANY that give the same balance and quality of sound these do.

I'm picky in the kind of music I like. It ends up being kind of dubstep with a lot of interesting high rifts. Try looking up "Hope" - Tobu, "5upernova" - Archie, or "Waking up" - NCS and you'll get an idea. Many of these songs I've found don't sound very good with lower quality headphones... or even many high quality ones. The issue I have with most high quality headphones is they make a huge trade. Clear highs result in no base. Strong base results in drowning out the other sounds. Anything I've found with both results in somewhat muddled sound. With the soul (lol, pun) exception of these. These headphones have set a standard in sound quality that I have found no equal to unless you want to drown in base or float on highs (pun? lol). Perfect sound, and perfect balance.

However, I will NEVER wear these when I go on a run or go to the gym. The comfort in wearing them is lost completely and they practically fall out of your ear every 30 seconds. The weight isn't noticeable if you're just walking or sitting, but the moment you start to work up a sweat they refuse to sit comfortably. So if you're looking for solid headphones to wear while you workout, these are not the headphones for you.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The earphones feel well built and the thick wire doesn't feel like it will tear with use like most cables end up doing. The sound quality isn't bad with decent bass and the volume control works well

Cons: Because the cable is so thick, it tends to make the earphones move out of my ear when the cable presses against something like when I am at the gym and string the cable under my shirt and I have leftover hanging out the top or if I wear one earphone and dangle the other over my ear. The replaceable buds don't quite fit well either and aren't "standard" size. I've had to use some others from previous pairs of earphones, which fit better

5 out of 5 eggsLudacris SL99

Pros: Great sound quality, good value for quality, anti tangle, fits well in my ear, I'm using the smaller ear buds. ,nice storage pouch, assortment of ear bud sizes. Long cord. Takes average daily punishment. Look great.

Cons: They tend to need adjustments, so as not to fall out of my ear, from time to time. No, "on ear hooks", to hold them in place if you are wearing them during heavy activities. I have tried, but they keep falling out, or need to be adjusted. They don't have the specs posted on their web site. I would like to know that the d b, impedance, and what the exact frequency response is.

Other Thoughts: These are truly a great value for the money, especially if you get them during a sale. I have had these for over two months now and have used them on a daily basis. I have used them while working, during heavy activities...e.g. working out or house and outdoor activities. I have even used them while sleeping. They have withstood my pulling on them or tugging by accident, my sweat, and rain. They are tough, or I have been really lucky, or both. =)
The sound quality is amazing for an ear bud. NOT to be confused with over ear head phones! Clean bass, clear mid and highs. Out of all the other ear buds I have used and have now, these have been one of the best. I have the high end Bose ear buds, $$299.00 TDK's ear buds, almost as expensive JVC ear buds, and the SL99's sound the best all around. Each one of the others does a great job, BUT they don't reproduce the over all sound, 20hz to 20khz, as evenly throughout. These reproduce the bass smooth and evenly, were as the Bose is heavy deep bass with very little high end reproduction, much like their home speakers, (which I also have). The TDK's sound amazing, but they lack the bass that the SL99's reproduce. The JVC sound and feel great as well but don't have that mid or bass that the SL99's do. The SL99's reproduce smooth accurate clear highs, much like the JVC's. I have spent hours listen to the difference using sound testing music which I have used to set up home theater and car audio systems,(I use to install them),to see which one sounds the best and overall the SL99's sound the best. And just a friendly warning the highs are reproduced accurately enough to damage your ears if you are listen at to high volume level.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid Earbuds

Pros: -Decent sound overall, really good bass.
-Different sized earbuds
-In-line volume control for iPod/iPhone
-Block out exterior noise well

Cons: -The volume control is heavy, and it causes the right ear-bud to slip out of my ear.

Other Thoughts: -Bought on sale for $20, definitely worth.
-The noise cancelling amplifies the noise of my breathing. This makes me feel fat.

3 out of 5 eggsThey are Nothing Special

Pros: they look nice, and the build quality is outstanding. cable is very thick with a 90* plug, mic quality is standard. and the cable is just the right length. the tips that came with them fir me quite well, just don't be afraid of jamming them in your ear properly.

Cons: they are kinda heavy and the sound quality is that similar to SEMI-bass heavy $35 dollar in ears, these arent bass heavy so the lack of sound quality is questionable.

Other Thoughts: Get them on sale and they are totally worth it!

4 out of 5 eggsVery Satisfied

Pros: Anti-tangle wire.
Sound quality was surprisingly nice.
Wasnt sure what to expect when i bought these but i was pleasantly surprised.
These are better than Skull candy earbuds and comparable to my Beats that my wife ruined.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Kind of an awkward shape for an earbud. Once you find the best fit, theyre comfortable.
Couldnt pass up on the sale for these.

5 out of 5 eggs  change the ear buds!

Pros: Great sound and build quality

Cons: The stock ear buds are too big for anyone. There are smaller ones inside the pouch for normal people. Use those and sound quality WILL improve due to less leakage and more concentration of sound.

Other Thoughts: Trust me, replacing those earbuds is worth it.

5 out of 5 eggs  Amazing

Pros: Great price, amazing sound.

Cons: Not compatible with iPhone 5s

Other Thoughts: I've had these for over two years and still don't have any issues. They sound great ten times better than Beats by Dre. I've used Bose, pioneer, everything. I use them to workout, travel and to just listen to my iPad and iPhone. They are a little big but the sound quality is great.
