Great sound


I picked these up on a Flash deal for $35 and was blown away at the quality. I am in mourning because the left side just died on me and I hate the idea of having to replace them. I would recommend these to anyone looking for comfortable earbuds with...

Great sound (especially after a burn-in period) ; Very comfortable ; I like the orange cord

Sennheiser - Sport Headphones (CX 380)


If they weren't discontinued, I would recommend these. I know it's only some people that get defective products, and I know that I'm just one of the unlucky ones. If I weren't looking for a microphone, I would send them in for manufacturer repair as...

I like how the right cord is longer than the left. This was done for a reason as the cord goes behind your neck, resting remaining length of cord on your left shoulder. This support keeps the buds in your ears better ; These headphones sounded amazing...

After eight months, which is to say a few days ago, they suddenly went bad. As the reviewer just previous to me points out, the volume is incredibly low. Where I was using only 40% to blow my ears off, 100% is hardly livable, and this of course reduces...

For the $, Amazing!


The packaging really sucks. Took me a while with some scissors and when I finally got to the goods, the ear plugs went flying halfway across the room.

Tried them out while doing a weight and cardio workout, couldn't be happier. Amazing sound quality, and to think that those stupid white headphones that Appl3 gives you were good...tisk

I don't like how one cord is longer than the other, but I hear that it has its perks. It will take some getting used to

Amazing earphones!!!!


Shoulda bought 2 at the time because my wife just got

Well the obvious one, $19.99 with free shipping ; They're very comfortable and they actually block out environmental noise ; I initially bought these for my workout sessions, now, I just use it all the time

Almost broke a knife trying to take the earphones out of the package ; Needs more bass

These are GREAT!


I bought them for my girlfriend, she hates ear buds but they were orange, her favorite color, and matched her little ipod shuffle thingy which is also orange. She couldn't believe how comfy they were and they fit perfectly. I was also amazed at the...

Very impressed with these. They really do block out noise. The orange cord is light weight and nice quality, in fact the entire thing is very nice quality. The ear buds are very comfortable as well. This is the best pair of earphones I've ever used

The packaging is incredibly stupid. First I gave them to my girlfriend, after she broke a nail she sobbingly handed them back to me. Then I tried a pair of scissors, which failed miserably. Then I tried clawing at it myself, which also failed. I'm not...

great little headphones


Buy them they are amazing!!

These headphones have a great range, The highs are crisp, the lows are warm, and the bass is tight. The bass does not sound muddy or over power the rest of the sound like beats do. Comfortable you forget they are even there, and they have never once...

The case was cheap so I dumped that. Also would have been nice if there was a volume bar or microphone

Complete Garbage and waste of money


I'm going back to my earbuds that came with the iPod. Returning this item will cost close to what I paid for it, but I don't care - it's going back.

NONE other than it was free shipping

The sound is HORRIBLE. It sounds like a earplug on an AM radio from the 60's - I'm not kidding. I have a set of earbuds from a dollar store that sound MUCH better ; The lop-sided cords are a pain in the A and not adjustable at all

Consumer review by:

Pretty good.


For the price these are pretty dang good ear buds. Newegg rocks on delivery times.

They sound pretty good for this price range. They come with different size cups for your ears

Unequal cord lengths
