Within one year, I've had to send these headphones back to the manufacturer, 5 different times due to different issues each time! From a short in the cord to everything sounding just fine one minute then the sound either diminishes in one ear or goes...

Just ok


These earphones sound excellent! Had a little problem with them staying in at first, finally found the right ear piece for me. I use these at work. Now as far as the cord it is not very flexible in cooler to cold temps, they keep falling out of my...

Cord is too stiff in cooler temperature

Not worth five dollars


I was going to get Beats,but i got them cause they were only 70... and that turned out to be a waste of money. the sound is bad, there is barly any bass and they dont even stay in your ears.This product has... Fall out of ears easily, Poor fitAbout...

The only thing good about them in the cord

My ten dollar earbuds have better sound than them

sl49 headphones


These headphones produce very high quality sound but will not stay in your ears. The sl49's did provide the best sound quality when compared to sennheiser, beats, and even bose earbuds, but they are very prone to breaking. I have had these headphones...

sound quality


Consumer review by:

Decent sound quality, rugged materials


Decided to try these after having multiple Skullcandy 50/50, Titan, & FMJ's used almost every day that have had cords go bad (usually at plug-end) within 4-8mos after purchase. The Soul by Ludacris uses a very heavy cord, and connections at both earbud...

Heavy duty cord, in line volume control/mic easier than most to use

Fit of earpiece is less than optimal

these headphones broke on me on the first day i had them after having a pair of skullcandy "smoking buds" for over 4 years without a problem. not worth the price. better off spending the extra 50 bucks for beats headphones or just getting yourself a...

Bad earbuds, save your $


I use my ear buds daily and went through so many a year that I figured i'd buy some expensive quality ear buds to keep up with my fast paced lifestyle. After less than 2 weeks my first pair broke, took them in, had to get a gift card value exchange...

They sound good

Everything else. Went through 3 pairs in 3 months. Literally terribly built

Consumer review by:

Great, but tend to hurt after long listening


I've had these earbuds for about a week now. After about an hour of listening, they start to hurt a little. Other than that they have excellent sound quality, and deep bass which is one thing I always look for when buying headphones.

Consumer review by:

Just as good as Beats Tour edition


These sound great. The cable seems solid. ControlTalk option works great. The reason most of these earbuds fall out of the ears so easily is cause most of us, including myself, use regular silicone tips that the earbuds come with. I returned soooo many...

Durability, sound

Nothing. Great for the price
