4 out of 5 eggs Pretty good 07/30/2014

This review is from: SteelSeries Flux In-Ear Mobile 3.5mm Connector Canal Headset

Pros:

Sound quality is good for the price. You are not going to mistake these for a $200 pair of headphones, but you shouldn't expect to. The sound is good enough that there's no annoying qualities to it, and it's a definite step up from budget headphones like the ones that come with your phone.

The no-tangle cords are EXCELLENT... I cannot say enough good things about this design! It's also nice to have multiple size fittings for your ear.

In-line mic is a nice feature to have, though its usefulness seems to me to be a bit niche.

Cons:

I primarily wanted to use these headphones to listen to my music on my smartphone while running, and I absolutely hated that experience... when the cord bounced up and down, even a small amount, it created a loud & obnoxious "thump" sound in my ear. It was absurd... instead of hearing my music, I felt like I was listening to the noise of a heartbeat turned up wayyyyyy too loud. Adjusting the size of the earpiece did not alleviate this problem.

I'm not sure if it's due to the design of the ear piece, or the design of the cord, but I found these headphones to be much more sensitive than typical to movement or contact, even compared to other in-ear headphones I've used.

-1 egg for this.

Other Thoughts:

I was really bummed that these didn't work well for running, but overall this is a decent headset given the price. The issue with cord noise is a typical downside of in-ear designs, so I'm not going to be too hard on these for that.
