Consumer review by: Bob (

Not perfect, but good enough


Still working after 3 months of occasional use. Not a whole lot of low end, but it's probably better for the ears, anyway. Still, sound is decent. (Especially for a set of sub-$15 earphones)

Good enough sound, especially at this price point

Retainer clips don't seem strong. (Haven't broken, but seem like they won't last long)

A great alternative to squishy earbuds


When it arrived, it looked way different than the picture advertised here, just thought if the picture was old or something.

The loop is secure, comfortable, and light for long hours of listening to music. Quality for its price is really good with clear audio... also it's not an earbud that needs a squishy cover to stay in your ear

Doesn't do a good job of preventing noise from getting in or out due to the nature of its speakers, but it's fairly negligible for what it is

Thiese are better for my ears then the other kind, the ones that go inside your ear. These used to be able in the store, should be again.

Garbage wrapped in plastic


it actually LOWERS the volume. My tablet was up all the way, plugged in the headphones and the headphones sounded like whispers. Returned quickly.

Good quality, affordable price


I am satisfied with the quality and also the price. These are lightweight and very comfortable (non-in-ear).

Not a good product


they kept slipping off my ear and when i attempted to adjust them they broke. I had to return them. Probably works fine for a low to moderate amount of activity/workout, but I am an avid runner. 20 minutes into a running speed of about 12min/mile I am...

good for casual use


For a fews years, I've used these ear clips while listening to meditations, laying down. I don't like ear buds. These clips are good, but I thought this pair would have a shorter cord than the one I have - ends up there're the exact same thing. Why on...

easy listening


Light and comfortable on the ears. But the sound quality isn't what I would have expected.

Great for those who dislike in the ear earbuds!


In the ear earbuds can be uncomfortable, and can cause you to lose the bass end if your music. These over the ear clip on headphones are great for walking/exercising and for retaining the integrity of your music.
