Functional and almost perfect 09/16/2013
Good cable management. Short cable for runs with armband, Extension cable for street wear.
Good quality armband (Fits Samsung Galaxy S3 like a glove).
overall build quality is not inspiring confidence microphone pickup quality could be better
I wanted this to be my only earphones and they have great potential. If you purchase them for sport only i won't look any further.
For running: with included armband it was great. i forgot that i was wearing anything so comfortable this earbuds are with right plugs. Design allows for almost no cable rubbing noise and fit is very secure (i can shake my head and earphones won't move)
Armband design is OK. It looks like designers have listened to the feedback and included additional piece to cover Velcro hooks that otherwise would have rubbed on the side of your body. This was by design so armband can be used with arm of any size.
For other activities: Earphones came with good quality case (semi rigid) that has belt loop and it's perfect size for my Galaxy S3. Even though belt loop is plastic i can see some use before it breaks.
City living: Earphones have great sound isolation. Which can be great if you trying to lose yourself in music on the subway or busy street. But it can be dangerous to lose awareness. Wearing it with extension cable is a little cumbersome. connector is a bit heavy but i guess it will easily survive stepping on it.
Conclusion: Considering their price i would say it's a great deal. If only quality of materials would have been a bit better it would be clean winner. Being sport oriented earphones i have a feeling that they not going to survive more then 3-6 month. Memory wire and memory wire connection feels loose after 3 days. Cables are soft, which makes them less noisy and manageable but might not survive being caught by something.
Same can be said about earbuds. Nice but if you sit or step on them by accident they might shatter. But then again, don't forget it's a $40 earphones bundled with $20 case.
