Better than Expected
Pros: Crisp highs, good but not overstated bass, comfortable, excellent noise isolation.
Cons: Did not come with a cleaner as described.
Overall Review: I am really loving these buds. The sound quality has excellent depth and clarity. These could be used as reference buds as the tones are not over-baked like Bose products. I have used these while mowing the lawn and on an airplane. They do a fantastic job of isolating the background noise and they are so comfortable that I can wear them for three hours without any issues. My Shure 216's are collecting some dust these days.
Everything I expected!
Pros: - Easy assembly (actually mostly assembled already) - Fits under my desk at work - Quick folding and unfolding - Gear ratio good for hills (up or down) - Fenders and luggage rack are very useful
Cons: - Need to really tighten the handlebar clamp down so it doesn't wobble - Frame hinge was very stiff at first (probably unavoidable and it did loosen up eventually) - Some of the hardware is pretty cheap looking - Doesn't take much for the pedals to pop back out when they're folded up
Overall Review: I picked this bike up for around $200 shipped. It is a great deal for that much money. I don't know if I would have paid $550 for it, which is what others are charging.
