Looks good + great price

Was delivered with a short. Only one ear works

Consumer review by:

Liked the first pair, bought another


I don't have great expectations of sound quality or dynamic range from something this size or price, I just want them to be durable and comfortable, and these are both.

I bought a pair of these for my wife some time ago and was quite impressed by the build quality of both the cord and the body of the headphones. I've used them a couple times and they are quite comfortable too. They even came with two sizes of nubs

OK sound

Bad quality material made


Consumer review by:

Avoid this garbage


No pros

Constantly mechanically clicks when you insert it into your ear. Constantly falls off, because metal body is heavy

Consumer review by:



good sound, bad quality of materials, at least for me

very good sound quality, bass is clear, and pretty comfortable

the left earbud was loose when i opened them new and over a span of one month, the right earbud became loose also and actually split in half. this is an issue because every time i try to take the earbuds out, the rubber part stays in my ear and i have...

Can't get them to stay in.


I guess if they fit your ear and you're using them in a mostly passive situation they would be fine. For my purposes, using them while moving around a lot, they simply will not stay put.

The sound quality is great, when they're properly seated. Seems to be of good build quality

It doesn't take much to jostle them free and the size/weight of them leads to a much easier fall-out compared to my previous set of in-ears

ear covers STAY in your ears


good sound, cheap

ear tips will NOT stay on the buds, I'm constantly getting them lodged in my ears. They sound good, but are borderline dangerous

Quality concerns


I'm sick of the terms "premium" and "passive noise isolating". 9 times out of 10 if you need to put the word 'premium' in the title of your product, there's nothing premium about it. "Passive Noise Isolating" - ...really? Well duh if I put something in...

Braided cable to help product longevity. Cable is just about the right length

Seriously the first time I took of the original bud to put the larger size on the small metal grille inside on the right bud came off. I hadn't even put the earbuds on to listen to anything yet and something broke. I tried to put it back in, but it...

Not impressed. You can do better for similar money


My biggest concern with these earbuds is long-term durability. I've not always had the best luck with Rosewill products, and I'm already seeing a couple issues after a short period of ownership. There was the poorly fitting cushion set I mentioned...

Three different sizes of cushion are nice, ensuring that most people will find a comfortable fit. Noise isolation is quite effective, at least as good as my passive Shure buds that cost quite a bit more than these. The carrying pouch will fit easily in...

While the braided cable feels reasonably sturdy, anytime it brushes against my clothes, I experience annoying rustling feedback through the buds. This could be mitigated if the cable were adjustable, but it's not ; It might be a problem with the unit I...

A pleasant surprise


I have yet to find a better set of earbuds for less than $40-50. At this price, one expects throwaway quality. Rosewill's focus on sound quality, comfort, and noise isolation paid off. Ergonomically these buds are not the best, but they certainly rise...

A confession: I was prepared to not like these earbuds. My previous experience with buds in this price range was either with the freebies bundles with phones or as temporary replacements for better options. For example when an overly enthusiastic TSA...

The issue noted by other reviewers of noise generated by any movement of the cable is present. Until you actually start playing music, it's downright annoying. The combination of stiff cable and the aluminum housing make for echo chambers in your ears....
