Shocking Sound w/Improvemnts

I use the earphones for music at work and audio monitoring during shoots.
Hands-down the best priced headphones for "Dual-Drivers"!
The audio is clean and the bass is fat and round, NOT muddy or rattling like a 97' Cadillac on 7th ST. parked at the Circle K.

The earbuds them selfs are slippery at times. Thats why I also bought COMPLY T-140 FOAM TIPS. GREAT COMB!!

NOTE: if static builds up on your clothing the mesh tips inside the earphones will shock you. Its doesn't happen often but when it does, it hurts.

CONCLUSION: I would not trade them for anything! I love my Apple Earphones!!

Ok so apple dominates the technological market with outstanding form in computer, iPods, tablets and these headphones are no different. They are beautifully made, comfortable in ear, with 3 "capsulated" size selections, and an extremely handy case for the headphones that just seems too simple to be true.But functionality... The headphones do their job, but the sound is a bit tinny, there is virtually no bass, and they buzz occasionally.Bottom line. Good headphones, but not for [$], maybe $50 worth

Best in ear headphones around

By E

Comments about Apple Dual-Driver In-Ear Headphones with Mic and Remote:

They are the best around, but I just wish buds didn't pop off so frequently. Or if they can't manage to fix that, at least ship them with ample replacements.

    Comments about Apple Dual-Driver In-Ear Headphones with Mic and Remote:

    I've done a lot of research and I've found these to be some of the best in-ear headphones I could hope for.
    It is very effective in canceling out ambient noise plus the audio quality is unbeatable at this price range.
    If you use Apple products this is definetly the right choice as it is fully compatible with all products like the iPhone and iPad, allowing you to control volume, skip, forward, etc.

        Comments about Apple Dual-Driver In-Ear Headphones with Mic and Remote:

        Music is reproduced with significantly more accuracy, refinement, detail and extension at the frequency extremes, and also more comfort than the stock Apple phones. The bass is detailed and clear when the ear pieces are seated properly in the ear channel. Bass strikes a good balance to the mids and treble--although probably will not be a "bass freaks" cup of tea. Mids and treble are detailed and satisfying for general portable uses, especially for the price--a good value in a two-driver headphone. Also, comes with a good case that fits in your pocket comfortably, compactly and securely. Five-Star rating is for price/performance.

          Comments about Apple Dual-Driver In-Ear Headphones with Mic and Remote:

          They create an odd ear plug type suction that makes talking odd when you where them. On the other hand it blacks out all surrounding noise to better hear the music or conversation. The sound output is average, but I like having the apple controls available on the wire so it is what it is.

            Comments about Apple Dual-Driver In-Ear Headphones with Mic and Remote:

            First I want to say there are a lot of mixed reviews for this headphones. I hesitated a little. Most of the other websites don't offer newest revision "B" of this headphones. Difference between "A" and "B" (MA850G/B) is subtle change Apple made on the cord. Previous revision had a problem with cord snapping.

            Built quality of the headphones is really good, they come packaged in nice box, typicall Apple style packaging.

            Sound quality is wonderful, two drivers in each headphone gives really great sound. I love listening to my music using them. They work nicely with my iPhone, but also with my Macbook AIR. They are much more comfortable than iPhone stock headphones, they have good bass and great sound.

            I really recommend them to anyone who want good sound quality and stylish design.

            The Ear buds fit will in the ear, however the sound quality is not what I was expecting and talking on the phone with these ear buds in your ear is not the best experience. I feel like I am yelling, then I take one out and feel like it is better because now I can hear myself.

                Best performing and most comfortable headphones I have ever used. Music listening ( streaming Pandora - especially) is crystal clear. Seriously changed my music listening time many fold. I actually walk the dog way more often just as an excuse to listen to music for an hour. Also the microphone (when someone interrupts my music is so clear when I am in noisy areas. I actually bought a second one for my wife. I left my earphone in a shirt pocket which went through the clothes washer. I was really sad and mad at myself for being so stupid. However, after I dried it off and hung it up to dry, to my surprise it is still perfect. I compared it to my wifes, still perfect.

                      I was hesitant to give any rating as I ended up never using the product, but since I've been nudged, here's my 2 cents.

                      Apple (and this goes for a few others) - thanks for having packaging that says the 160G Classic iPod works with these phones. You have completely disregarded original owners who shelled out big cash immediately for the first release of the player who wind up buying these things and then have to go out of their way to return them because their version of the 160G iPod Classic is not compatible.

                      But, I guess we're in the past, our money has long been taken and spent and what better way to get us to dump a perfectly good unit and buy an unnecessary new one. Well, I won't be doing so, but I'm sure some have or will.

                      Consider this a PSA for folks in my shoes.

                      Comments about Apple Dual-Driver In-Ear Headphones with Mic and Remote:

                      I use the earphones for music at work and audio monitoring during shoots.
                      Hands-down the best priced headphones for "Dual-Drivers"!
                      The audio is clean and the bass is fat and round, NOT muddy or rattling like a 97' Cadillac on 7th ST. parked at the Circle K.

                      The earbuds them selfs are slippery at times. Thats why I also bought COMPLY T-140 FOAM TIPS. GREAT COMB!!

                      NOTE: if static builds up on your clothing the mesh tips inside the earphones will shock you. Its doesn't happen often but when it does, it hurts.

                      CONCLUSION: I would not trade them for anything! I love my Apple Earphones!!
