Maximo iMetal iM-390 Earphones


With the popularity of digital audio players in today's society, I've always wondered this: Why would the consumers, the people who can afford such products exceeding $300 use personal audio output devices such as earphones that are worth roughly 1% of...

Very disappointed


I thought by buying expensive ear pieces, I would get quality. This is not the case. I would go back to my old ear piece which had TRUE quality sound, and at half the price, but I don't like the freaking volume control on it; Its located at just the...

It looks very clean and attractive ; Very sturdy

Unfortunately, the cost went into the design and not the quality of sound ; Voices are bland, bass sounds wrong, everything sounds slightly muffled. Totally not what I expected

A Solid "Great Deal For Your Money" Purchase


When I first put these in I tried to re-produce the cracking sound that other claimed to hear (reviews on newegg), but I was only able to make one poping sound. After that I wore them for about 30-45 minutes and moved them around periodically but I was...

Low Price ; Carrying Case ; Sturdy all-metal earphone design ; Isolation really works ; multiple ear canal pieces (small/large) ; 2.5mm adapter ; Great overall sound highs, mids, lows

Shipping took 7 days. Item was shipped from a warehouse in NJ then tendered to UPS in TX and finally made it to my house in OK

Best headphones I've owned yet


I personally never heard of Maximo but did some web searching and people love em, so I figured I should give them a try. I'm glad I did.

For the price I wasn't sure what to expect. I don't really ever buy headphones, but these are amazing. They fit snugly and cancel out outside noise. I feels like I have the band in my head

People might not want to borrow them as you have to stick them in your ear canal

These are incredibly good for the price


I can't believe Newegg is still offering these! I bought them almost a year ago and they'd disappeared from the site for some time. I just happened to check whether I'd reviewed the ear buds after buying them and I hadn't. So, I was stunned that they...

Clear, crisp sound with more than acceptable bass ; Low price ; Excellent build quality

After substantial use, ear buds can come off and lodge in ear. But, you can easily "dig them out

Nice Christmas Gift


My wife bought these for me as a Christmas present and I cannot complain. Good sound, better than any earphones or buds included with MP3 players. Even better than the iPod earphones that everyone seems to love so much ; Bass response is good and the...

RMA'd Set


I had high hopes for these but I seem to be a little disapointed at every turn. This is the type of thing that should just work. Having to position it "just right" or deal with RMA's or "tingy" or "crumpled popcan" sounds is just rediculous. I do not...

RMA'd set has not failed ; Songs with lots of base are acceptable ; Look nice

Right ear bud makes a sound similar to a popcan being crumpled up inside of my ear anytime the bud is moved or ear presure changes, (opening mouth, etc) ; Songs with little base tend to be "tingy" and when base comes in, they tend to be on the light side

Pretty, light...


The first time I received the left earphone was dead. Newegg was really nice replacing this with no charge. Their customer support is very good!

light, the aluminum looks nice, comes with a 2ft extensor cable

it hurts a little after sometime of use, it does not have volume control, maybe was too expensive for what you get

I was dumb enough to toss the original packaging.


Arrived with L channel that cuts out constantly ; R channel working but sounds tinny and muddy
