Endlessly Recommended

 

I bought these almost two years ago, and they still work as well as the day I opened them. I bought them on a whim when they were on sale ($15!!!), and man oh man was that a good idea. In the past, I'd only used earbuds from discount stores because I...

Kinda boring looking, just black. That's probably a pro for some people, but I'd prefer for things to look good in addition to performing well. With soft music, there's sometimes a background sound

Lasted not quite 2 years

 

Get the warranty. I did not mistreat these headphones but they did not even last 2 years of sitting on my office desk. I see they're about double the price I paid for them now also, so make sure you protect them.

Sound great, loved these headphones

Lost a channel about 18 months after I bought them

The rumors are true

 

Seeing all of the 'these will fail' reviews, I ignored these warnings and went ahead to purchase the most comfortable earbuds I have ever owned. Then, after about 8 months, the right speaker died. I've come to accept this from most earbuds, but I was...

Excellent sound quality, comfortable

Not built to last

Decent for the price, amazing when on sale.

 

The first time I bought these was actually at a used record/video store. They were marked for clearance for about $15. I was a little leery of in-ear buds, but I thought the price was decent. I was absolutely blown away by how good these sounded....

Not a huge con, but I would really suggest that once you figure out the size of the rubber tips your ears take, order some more. I've found that the tips have a tendency to wander. Fortunately, I've almost always found the missing tips in my pockets or...

Good headphones

 

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a decent pair of headphones.

Much better than headphones that come with brand name phones. Even the Apple branded ones ; It doesn't fall out as much and the bass and mids sound fuller and clearer. Actually using these as in ear monitors. They block out almost all the sound and...

Did not come with a nice case, but I guess you need to spend more for that

Amazing

 

I think I've always been used to my headphones being a tad on the "muddy" side when they've had killer bass. Never have I used IEMs that have this much low-end though. I've since bought several pairs to compare with, and have come back to these as my...

Amazing lows (bass, sub-bass) ; Decent mids ; Decent highs

A tad on the "muddy" side

Great earbuds

 

Depending on your taste of sound, these have pretty good bass, which may or may not be for everyone's taste. It does have a 90 degree connector on the end, which again, may or may not be for everyone.

Lasted over a year (Originally purchased in 11/24/2012 ; Good sound isolation ; At the price I got them for ($19.99), these are a great value

You kind of are unable to use them if you lose the ear tip pieces

Nice little earbuds

 

I've had more than my fair share of disappointments when it comes to earbuds, and these have yet to disappoint. Even being an audiophile I've purchased 2 of these (because eventually I will manage to break these)

Since I was first exposed to Sennheiser I've been impressed with their quality, and these earbuds are no different. For being as small as they are they have taken a fair amount of abuse from me and seem to be holding up well. That's saying something...

I'll note upfront that I'm a bit of an audiophile so this may not be a con for everyone, but it is for me. The sound reproduction is decidedly inferior to my old CX485s (I really miss them). These fail to reproduce the same level of richness/fullness,...

Not so good

 

Were nice while they worked

One earphone went dead after 1 month use. Not too happy

Great for Sale Price

 

Great for the sale price of $15. 50x better than the default iPhone headphones.

Great sound, noticeable bass. Fit snugly in your ear, and have three different sizes if the defaults don't work. Will not fall out while exercising

Cable is loud, and you can hear it at medium-level volumes. Turning it up solves this issue, but is undesirable ; The rubbery texture of the cord also makes it a bit hard to untangle
