Best Headphones EVER!


Trust me, I have the most trouble with earbuds! They never stay in or they make my ear unbelievably sore. I'm so glad i found round earbuds that have earclips! These are so comfortable, you sometimes forget they're in your ear. And the sound is...

Gr8 Sound & Fit


I just bought these on 5/23/09. I use these w/my MP3 when I lift weights & skip rope. I was skeptical as I had tried ear bud phones B4 and thoght the quality of sound was weak. I was wearing Sony MDR-A35 S2 4 the last year. As soon as I put on these...

Good sound, poor fit for serious cardio.


I bought these headphones as an alternative to ear buds I had for running purposes. The good is the sound quality is just as good as an $80 pair of Creative Lab headphones I own. The bad news is this headphones are not good for serious running or...

Broke after 10 uses.


I bought these from target and loved them at first. I only used them at the gym for about 10 uses before they broke though. During the 10th use, the sound got worse over about a 10 minute period until it was constantly fading in and out. Now they don't...

These are the best I have EVER owned!


I have shopped countless times searching for "that" pair of headphones that produced great sound, remained stationary during workouts, and didn't cost me a month's worth of gas money! These are the ones! They have an amazing sound and they fit awesome!...

Excellent Choice for the Money


I've had them for almost a year and they have great premium sound. Every time I put them on I am still happy with them. They have crisp mids and highs. For the size the bass is surprising. They are extremely comfortable right out of the package. They...

Not worth it


While this headphone isn't too bad, it's overpriced at 3 times the average headphone. Regardless of what size plug I wear they still keep coming out. And the bass is by far the worst I have ever had in headphones. A lot worse than cheaper $10 bucks...

Absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!


These earphones/clips are absolutely amazing. They're almost Noise-Canceling, except there is no sound emitted to make it so. The extra sizes for earbuds make the earphones the most comfortable pair I have ever gotten, and you don't have to worry about...
