Still selling the junky mute button?


I wrote a review of these about 18 months ago, and gave them a low rating due to the defective mute button. I'm surprised this is still happening. I tried two sets and returned them both. These would be fine without the button.

Good sound, nice fit, but ...


I like these earbuds a lot except for the mute button. After using them for about 6 months, I started having problems with the sound being inconsistent in the right earbud. Had to constantly fiddle with the button to 'reconnect' the sound. It's finally...

Shut Out the Noise!


The sound is great. I would have given these 5 stars had they not come with such large rubber ear inserts that fit a bit awkward for my small ear.

Consumer review by: Juan (



I agree with everyone. The mute button has a short because they used the wrong spring in to allow it from un-muting. So I took it apart, had to break it apart, to extend the spring to not short anymore. Snapped it back together and works great! If it...
