Good value


Don't own any high dollar buds but these are exponentially better than any stock buds I have ever owned. I got them on sale for $12.99 so think they are very good for the price.

Sound very good for the price. The cord coating is almost silicon-like so it doesn't tangle easily. The way they are made makes it easy to determine which bud goes in which ear. Use them mowing and have had them yanked out of my ear or out of my player...

Decent Bass


Sound quality is great, ambient noise is cancelled out while listening. You can't beat this price, for a pair this decent

The 3.5mm should be straight, like iPhone headphones

Great sound!


They match my Red Yamaha R6! :D

Good bass ; Very comfortable; like they were made specifically for my ears ; Loud enough when tested on my HTC Inspire phone. Any louder and you will go deaf ; Inexpensive

With the cord was a little thicker, but for the price this is the norm

They were cheap (I think $14.99) newegg deal ; Bought 2 ; Sound OK but not great ; Fit great in your ear

Yamaha - not quite ; must not be true Yamaha, as the sound quality is just not there ; No bass/tremble ; are not loud ; color is funky but whatever

Fortunately, my teen daughter doesn't care about the lack of bass. I just hope that they last longer than the Skull Candy earbuds that they replaced.

You can't blow your ears out with these earbuds

Very low efficiency. You really have to crank up the volume to get any sound out of them. No bass. I don't mean weak bass, I mean no bass

Good sound


Worth the price.

Very good sound. Good Price

No tiny sliding sleeve to keep the two ear buds together when not in use

Yamaha EPH-20 Berry


Good price, comes with 3 size earbuds so you can try them. I first used the default medium size but found they slip. Now I use the large size and it is very comfortable

Bass response is good while the buds are tightly fitting (since it partly relies on vibrating the interior of the ear) , if they slip and come loose then the bass is not as good. This will vary from person to person depending on the fit

Consumer review by:

Great for smaller ears


The cord is a good length but I would have liked it maybe a little longer

I have been searching for a good pair of headphones that will fit my ears. This design sits perfectly in my ears and has smaller than normal canal insert. Great headphones for price

They could be a little louder

Consumer review by:



When I first inserted them into my ears I noticed right away how comfortable they feel! I usually have to use the smallest tips on other brands so they will fit in my ears comfortably but then they come lose or even fall out with any vigorous movement....

I don't like it when people type in all capitals unless they mean to seem like they are shouting which is why I shouted the title, 'WOW! BEST FOR THE MONEY ; I also could have said 'GREAT SOUND QUALITY!!! and 'COMFORTABLE!!!' just the same but too much...

Of course for the price these seem like they are not the most ruggedly built earphones but then again at this price they are definitely worth getting a few pair ; With gentle care I am confident they will last as long as expected
