Great Sound, weird wires


The sound on these is fantastic. I've had perhaps a dozen earbuds over the past 3 years and these are my favorites for their great sound, fit and noise isolation. They have the best base I've experienced in $50 headphones.

Superior base, clarity, ear comfort

Cord catches on clothes, cord tangles

Consumer review by: splatman213 (

These are pretty good aside from a few minor fault


if you listen to hip hop or rap then these are definetly amazing, but their performance is not what i expected on songs that dont have a lot of bass. dont get me wrong the soud quality is extremely clear and smooth but for 50 dollars it could be...

nice bass, looks sleek and cool, look expensive

thin wires, the seperate headphones wires split awkwardly, case is kind of difficult
