Durable, Low bass


the wire quality is amazing, so is the headphones, i give it a 5/5 an its a steal for the price and also with warranty for 2 years, Precise sound and sharp sound.

Amazingly Durable, with 2 years warranty that i know helps as they gave me a new set when my mid bass was giving problems, works well with most of the music players, plus has a L shaped 3.5mm jack (that i feel is more durable than the straight one), Bass

Bass is low ( but i like it that way, i don't want bass to empower the sound nor do i listen to hip hop and ****), cushions tear and the sound quality with the cushions is way way better

Not bad for the price, but I'm sticking with my Ink'd earbuds.

Good for the price. Multiple size rubber earpieces

Not as good as my Skull Candy Ink'd earbuds which cost about the same. Had a muddier sound

It sounds great, I wasn't expecting it to sound as good as it did for being included with my mp3 player purchase

well there's really no con's to think of whatsoever. I didn't have to pay for it so what can I say

Good for the price


Overall these are decent ear buds for under $10 but if you're an audiophile you will be a bit disappointed. Great as a spare pair or for travel.

Great price. $7.99 Sound quality is decent and the cord is long. Good spare pair or for traveling

The buds are a bit on the large size and if you play your music on the loud side people around you will probably hear a bit of what you are listening to

So satisfied, compelled to review!


I've been searching for good "cheap" earbuds now for a very, very long time, and I am shocked it took me so long to find these. I frequent the Sennheiser brand, finding them one of my favorites for high quality applications, but must have simply...

Sennheiser brand, price, respectable specifications, filling sound, clear highs and lows at any volume. I also enjoyed that the cable is more of a classic style; two wrapped wires in a "8" shape with a "tasteful thickness" if you will. Compared to most...

For the price, I was unable to find something I disliked about these. Well, except the right angle jack, although some might find that appealing. They are also slightly difficult to differentiate between right and left, but this is hardly an issue as...

Great sound for the price!


With my business I have to be able to hear whats going on around me as well as have a true appreciation for great sound quality from earphones. Usually in order to get really good sound you have to have either larger over the ear headphones or in the...

Great sound at lower levels without blocking out other sounds around you ; Pretty lightweight and comfortable with sponge covers on. Also has a 90 degree 35mm stereo jack that's not too bulky

Ear pieces feel very plasticy without protective covers but fit rather fine with them on for me. Not really a negative

Great for the price!


can't beat the price if you have larger ears like me.

Sound great! Great sounding solid headphones

The ear buds may be to large for most ears... I have a big head so wasn't an issue for me but my friend is not able to use them because they don't fit in her ear

Good at fist, mediocre later.


I originally bought these as a quick fix after I broke my skull-candy headphones. These had pretty good bass for earbuds, and I could actually hear the high sounds without it hurting my ears. They did the job well and I was considering these as a...

Great quality at first, light weight, cool design
