    These earphones are inexpensive, but have surprisingly good sound quality. As advertised, they have fairly descent bass response. I had this pair of earphones for couple years, and recently the left side stopped working, so I tried couple of more expensive ($20-$30) in-ear sound-isolating earphones, but i couldn't stand their "stethoscope effect" (where you can hear loud thump whenever something touches the cords), so I returned them all, and decided to buy this pair again. I'm very happy with this product.

    I ordered these headphones as high-end headphones and audio are my hobby and I wanted to give it a try. Perhaps my expectations were too high based on so many favourable reviews. I found that these earphones lack detail in mid and high range. The sound quality was bellow average compared even to some average Sony earphones. Yes, the bass is there but other than that, the sound is quite muffled. They are worth [$] which is how much I paid for it.

    The frequency range is great: from treble to base. I use them for my laptop to listen to videos and music. The only problem I had was getting used to the earbuds. Great value for the money.

      I'm very happy with these headphones -- great sound quality & they don't fall out of my ears. Previously I had the Apple (non-earbud) headphones, and they wouldn't always stay in my ears. These are also a bit more durable. Overall a great buy!

        Great earbuds! They actually stay on your ears even when you sweat a lot. They come with extra long wire which is great to have when your running.

              UPDATE 3/6/13Left headphone recently stopped producing audio, right soon to follow from the sound of it. I have the means to open up and fix the headphone wiring but the structure of it makes it difficult to get to the wiring without damaging the exterior. On another note, I would not recommend this if you fall asleep with your mp3 player on...the irritation and pain one gets in the ears is very cumbersome and would prevent you from repeating the error anytime soon. 7 month lifespan. That is the final thing I have to say about the item.

                            I was really impressed with the depth of sound these produced. I prefer earbuds when I'm shooting because if I forget about them, they'll "tear away" when I step from the camera. As with my experience with Sony, they're well built, fit well, and are a cut above the rest.

                                  I have 2 pair of these and the best thing about them is the bass. Most cheap ear buds sound "tinny". These do not. Sound is much richer than any ear buds that I tried including ones that cost double what these cost. They also stay in your ears well for running. A big upgrade over headphones that come with iPods/phones. I have had 1 of the pair for 3+ years and nothing has broken and they still sound great.

                                    these were on sale. i owned a pair of these before that lasted 2 years. i bought these as a replacement. they are cheap (in price) but effective (i like the sound these headphones give, a little bass boost but not too much). i like earbuds like these that actually enter the ear only a little bit and they rarely fall out of my ears. one of a kind.

                                    I Use this product everyday and have no qualms about it. The sound is crisp and clear, immersive, and has a rich bass to it. The only problem I can foresee is the uncomfortable feeling of prolonged use which in itself, to me at least, is a blessing in disguise. A reminder to cease the use of it for awhile to avoid hearing damage/loss. I have used them daily with no complaints towards durability but have not had them for long, I look forward to the future to see how they fare against the inclement environments they will be subjected to.5 * without a doubt.

                                    For how cheap these headphones are, the sound is outstanding. Plus being so cheap there is less worry about losing them or accidentally washing them as that seems to happen to all earphones.

                                    Only complaints are sometimes they can be uncomfortable and the first pair I had only lasted a year before the right earbud died. But being so cheap, I happily bought another pair.

                                      These are the best earbuds I've ever owned. I bought two pair with this order, because I always lose them, eventually. I have small ear canals and most earbuds barely fit, and after a half-hour become painful. These fit snug, don't fall out often, and direct the sound right into the ear. Great Bass! Just make sure you have them in tight. They eventually work their way out a tad when jogging, so I readjust them every 15 minutes or so.
