Great headphones


These sounds great. Are they worth the msrp... No but got it on sale and they are worth very bit. Had the Bose IE2 and we're horrible. These blows them away. Highly recommend.

Great sounds and quality. Very Affordable

Volume controls stop working


Design is modern. The number and sizes of air adapters provided is also good. They feel solid and well made. Didn't know anything about this manufacturer but the price was right so I took a chance. I liked these headphones, for the first two weeks

Then the volume control stopped working, for no reason. They were not stepped on or driven over with the family car. Nor did they go through the wash. They were working one day then the next day they weren't. I just don't understand what happened

Best Ear Buds Ever


New egg saved me at least $50 on these great monitors. They sell for $95 -$200. I got a great deal on excellent ear buds.

Loud, crisp, precise sound. Very sturdy construction. Well equipped with accessories. Free app available from Scosche

None so far

Good, but not stellar.


The dynamic drivers in these are not good enough to handle deep bass, and the BA are tuned for mids and highs, but come off as being somewhat overdone. The sound isn't exactly bright despite that. Some frequencies feel under represented. Seems like the...

Multiple driver setup at a very reasonable price. Lots of great accessories

Heavy, especially the cable. Not built as well as expected. Sound frequencies feel somewhat unevenly represented and lack the proper tuning to resolve the weaknesses in both drivers

LOUD, Great!


Great balance of bass and voice, VERY well made, and sturdy wiring. LOUD! Good fit. Great iPhone controls

I got a great deal of $40, but they are usually pricey. Wiring is sturdy, but that makes it heavier

Consumer review by:



For $40 I am absolutely blown away. This put pretty much all previously owned headphones to shame including Klipsch S4i & Monster Turbines

Crystal clear mids/highs ; Deep lows ; High quality material ; Great control/mic that works flawlessly with iphone ; Best cord I've ever seen on a set of headphones ; Comes with awesome magnetic leather pouch & a lot of different sized cups ; Bought...

My ears hurt


Loudest headphones I've ever used at the $100 range ; Best sound quality for the price

Highs either start to get mashed or ; So loud, my hearing is probably damaged after an hour of use, 5/5

My V-MODA Remix Remote In-Ear Noise-Isolating Metal Headphone with 3-Button Apple® Control works fine on the Moto X. Yes, the button's don't work but at least I can hear with both ears. Just a bit of info in case others with MotoX were planning to buy...

Nice sound quality, highs and mids are crisp and clear.. not like the cheapie ones. The base is not as deep as I would like but good enough. It works great on my ipad, iphone 4, and my android HP touchpad. I'm rating it 5 stars because it is a good...

It does not work on my android Moto X, only the left ear has sound. The middle button does start and stop the song. I need to use the included adapter for sound to be heard on both ears, adapter looks weird since the mic jack is hanging loose, it is...

Great IEMs but...


For $60 they are a good quality pair of earphones.

1.Good audio quality for $60 - good bass and good highs with no distortion at high volume ; 2. Cable does not tangle ; It somehow works for Android phones (can hang up or take calls using the provided remote) ; 3. Lots of accessories ; 4. Good microphone

1. I wish it came with foam tips. The XL tips do not provide a good ear seal ; 2. Because of the big driver size, other tips would not fit

Consumer review by:

Disappointing, Poor Bass Quality.


My Hammerheads blow these out of the water in the low range. I picked these up on promo for $60 which is basically the same price. Honestly, if I was a fan of mids and highs these things would be awesome. Absolutely never would I think these headphones...

Very Clean and Crisp Sound. Nice Cable Length and they look very well built. I gave these a 4 simply because of how clean they sound

They advertise a frequency range of 15hz - 30khz. I find that hard to believe. However, I would believe 30hz-30khz because that's what it sounds like to me, I tried several different earbud sizes hoping it would bring out the low end. I swapped in my...
