This review is from: Pioneer SE-CX8 In-Ear Headphones-Silver
Pros: Overall excellent sound on the warm, lush side. Deep bass. Very well built. Nice packaging.
Cons: Large. Heavy. Thick cord. No shirt clip. Somewhat uncomfortable in the ear.
Other Thoughts: They came in the most elaborate packaging I've ever seen. It's a work of art, really, but that's not what I'm paying for. I really want to like these earbuds. The sound is excellent and the build quality is excellent. I think they might actually survive more than a year or two at my desk, which is where I will use them 100% of the time for my work up to 10 hours a day.
The sound is rich and balanced and the bass augmentation really does work if you want it to. Otherwise, they sound perfectly fine for the $50-70 street price.
My problem with these earbuds is that they are heavy and large. They come without a shirt clip and after an hour or so my ears started to ache. I rigged up a hair clip on the cable to clip to my shirt but after five or six hours my ears start to ache from the weight. Also, I don't think the tips that come with them are that comfortable. They are shaped like a bucket, flat on the end, and they cause some soreness, too. I tried some round silicone tips from some cheap buds I had and that helped a lot but they would keep falling off in my ear because the mounting hole was too large.
Bottom line - Good sound and should be durable but expect to tweak them to get good fit and comfort. Probably not suitable for sports or extensive travel.
Pros: Like new machine
Not too much bloatware
Very well built
Cons: None but see below
Other Thoughts: I could find no evidence my laptop was ever used by anyone. I have now tested everything possible and the only glitch is the back USB port will not read a particular foot pedal that I use for work, but the pedal does work on all the other ports, and anything else I plug into this port works fine. Dell is known for glitchy USB management (KVM switches especially), so I am not knocking an egg for this. For the $340 I paid, this was a phenomenal deal.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Belkin continues with 100% reliability in my experience.
