Creative EP-630 (Pink)


The Creative EP-630 earphones are compact, comfortable, and relatively stylish, coming in a choice of five shimmery colors. They offer a reasonable amount of passive noise isolation and solid sound quality for the money.

The Creative EP-630 earphones are slightly lacking in bass for some songs, and they feel cheaply constructed, which raises concern for durability.

The Creative EP-630 earphones offer a comfortable and stylish design, solid audio quality, and handy sound isolation. They're a good value overall.

"Cheap Yet Excellent Earbud For Most Music"


I am by no means an audiophile, but i am very picky about music and listen to many types of music. I can discern between 128 and 320 kbps music, locate and compare sound very well, but can't discern any difference between 320 and uncompressed wav files.

-Slightly Enhanced Bass, Big Mids and Crisp Treble

-Rubber Wires cause tangling noise and may wear out 1.5 years later (from experience with other earphone)

Creative EP-630 (black)


My first IEM were "Koss Spark Plug" ( 2 pairs ) and I thought they were good, but after trying EP-630 I forgot "Plugs" like a horrible nightmare.

Fits great for the first week or two ( I mean sound isolation and good bass )

After about a month they won't sit so firmly in my ears, maybe it's a common problem for all IEMs

Great Sound for ?20, but they won't last very long!"


Invest in something more durable! 

Price, obviously

If used on a daily basis they simply won't last for longer than 5 months

These came with my Dell XPS 1530 and I tried them for the first time and really was impressed. All I used before were cheap iPod and hard plastic in-ear buds, so these really were a huge improvement. Not sure how they compare to the much higher end ear...

Great sound, most comfortable ear phones I've ever used

Shorted out after about 1.5 years of pretty frequent use. You hear lots of wind and any other things that bump or brush the wire

If you aren't looking for great sound, I highly recommend these for doubling as fantastic noise reducers. But if you want good sound, I would try a different model or brand. I don't think you can go wrong w/ Sony (my cheapest Sony pair sound better...

Excellent noise reduction!!! (I use the medium size and they fit fine). Made well from good flexible material, the cords coming out of the earbuds are flexible rubber, and even the cord is made of rubber, which turns out to be a con (see below)

No crisp highs. No booming bass. Also, because the cord is rubber and not plastic, it often gets caught on clothing causing pull-outs or flat out creating lots of noise!! Also, in-ear plugs, you hear everything you do, like chewing, breathing,etc

I really wish I could find a good pair of earbuds that had comparable sound quality to these but also had a durable cord. If you plan on using these only on occasion and not carrying them around a lot then they might be for you. These are definitely...

They sound great, they are a nice length and you can find them for cheap on amazon. They are way better than stock, and even have a decent bass

They just do not last. My first pair lasted 1 year, but only really 3 months of heavy usage. My second pair lasted 1 month, and my last pair just broke after 4 months

Somehow I don't have normal ears (??) as very few headphones fit my ears. I've tried this type of headphone, the in-ear one, and so far, this is best one I have ever tried. They fit perfectly my ears and rarely fall out. I almost can't feel them. I...

Very comfortable, very good sound quality and nice design! I love them

None that I can think of

i got this for free with my Zen 4gb 2008. although the player is what was it expected to do, the ear phones that come in the pack have sup[er bad sound quality, this earphone comes as a major relief from outside noise. I may be taking this too long...

1) Noise isolation- good for an in ear earphone which is so cheap

1) Noise disturbance through wire touching clothes and other surfaces although not much
