      I like the soft silicone cups in multiple sizes, and the sound is good. I'm replacing older model Sony in-ear headphones that lasted a long time (8 years) before one side went out. I couldn't give them more stars though because they came with an "L" shaped plug which doesn't work for the way I use them. All the other headphones state when they have an "L" shaped plug and these say "standard" plug in the B&H product description.

        These are surpisingly good for the price. I can't say for sure how long they'll last but they do the job well for someone who usually buys $80 price range headphones.

              These headphones have no bass tone to them at all and the treble is way to high. My stock iphone headphones have better sound quality.

              However, they do fit in-ear very nicely and come with 3 differnt size fittings. The volume control on headphone is nice too.

              I wouldn't buy them again.

                  I have bought multiple pairs of this model over the past 4 years. I use them frequently and they generally last me at least a year before I ruin them. I believe only one pair has been replaced due to sound problems in one ear bud.

                        Needed a set of headphones to replace my terrific HF-2's that I slammed in the car door. Am constantly traveling so need a hands free, but also listen to a lot of music. These had decent reviews and were cheap so I tried them. They are fine for calls. Microphone is fine, call clarity is good. Even the mids and bass are OK for music. But there is so much sibilance in the highs that they are almost unlistenable. But, for the price, what can I expect?

                              The price on the headphones were closer to the inexpensive range. But if you plan to use these headphones for long periods of time such as more than an hour then you should opt to pay for better ones. They start hurting after more than an hour and had to let my ear rest.

                              I bought the DR-EX12iP In-Ear Stereo Headphones with Mic and Remote (Black) from Sony to provide high-quality audio with my Nokia cellphone while walking. Despite both use the standard 3.5mm plug it do not provides compatibility. I tested it with the Ipod and I do not listen any difference from others I have bought previously.

                                I bought these to listen to my IPod. They sound great and are a great price. The only thing is if you touch the cord going to the ear buds or make any movement, you'll hear some sound in the earbuds. Not a big deal, and I think it may be common with these types of headphones. Overall, I really like them.

                                  Hold up well even when skiing.
                                  Sound is good enough.
                                  Remote control is super helpful

                                          I have always been disappointed that the iPod Touch involves extra work for normal music functions because there are no hard buttons. To fast forward, pause, skip tracks you have to perform extra operations to get to the functions and then you also have to be looking at the screen to have it work.

                                          The remote on these headphones solves all that. Everything can be done without looking and it provides the physical buttons that the Touch is missing. If you have an iPhone, you can also answer or reject incoming phone calls.

                                          The remote and built-in microphone also activate the Voice Recognition function so you can say "What song is playing?" or tell your iPod to "Play artist Beethoven", "Play album Dark Side of the Moon", "Shuffle", or "Genius mix", or many other commands.

                                          This REALLY expands the functionality of the iPod, not only for music playback but for other apps as well.

                                          As an added bonus, the headphones sound great.
