I ordered these earphones for one reason. That reason is a reason that is currently lost on earphone producers of late. That is the inclusion of the "L" plug or "L-shaped" jack. I am like numerous folks out there that were upset when my favorite inexpensive earphones made by Jbuds (see JBuds Hi-Fi Noise-Reducing Ear Buds (Black)) decided to lose the "L" plug and go to the cheaper straight plug.

I keep my iTouch in a nice folio cover (which is even hard to find now; I prefer the ones that open like a book)and wrap my earphone cables around the case (see the pictures added here). With the straight plug, the earphones tend not to last long as the cable ends up getting tweaked. The "L" plug prevents this. Now onto the sound found with these earphones.

Like the Jbuds, these are comfortable. The sound was clear with good bass as well as mids and treble. I adjust my EQ on my iPod to my musical preferences and found no issues with these earphones. I cannot understand spending over $25 for earphones but that is just me. Perhaps it was way too many concerts back in the day and my ears cannot tell the difference.

For $20, you cannot go wrong here. As for durability, I question those who had their earphones go bad so quickly. They tend to sound like my younger brother who destroyed everything far sooner than I did including my original Aiwa cassette player with AM/FM radio.....but I digress......

Hope this helps some of you out there!!

I wouldn't know good headphones if I tripped over them. I just use the ones that came with my ipod. My son thinks I'm crazy for not keeping these for myself. He LOVES them and loves the sound and bass he gets from them. Another great thing is that they don't cut in and out like the apple ones do and both earbuds still work after two months. Fantastic!

A little over 30 days (just past the return policy date), the left channel on these headphones gave out. I got them at a Best Buy for $15, so it's really not all that cost-effective to try to get my money back for them anyway.

But when they did work, they weren't satisfactory. The sound was very tinny and the headphones had to be seated in perfectly or else the sound quality dropped sharply. Cheap headphones give cheap sound.

I am not a techno-geek in any sense of the word, so I may be easy to please. When it comes to something like earphones, I can't tell you anything about the subtle differences between competing products.

What I can tell you is that when it comes to the little earphones that you stick in your ears, my most common complaints are a) the music sounds tinny, like my old Walkman tape player, and b) the earphones keep falling out of my darn ears.

These Altec earphones solve both those problems. First, the quality of the sound is so much better than my previous two sets of earphones that I can honestly say that my playlist sounds entirely new and fresh. I am hearing bass lines on tunes from Clapton, the Pogues, the Mavericks, and Ray Charles that I have not heard before from my MP3 player.

The second problem I have with the earphones that you stick in your ear is that they never seem to stay in place when you're walking (or even sitting down) - much less doing something active like going for a jog. These earphones stay put, thanks to the little nodes/pads made of clear, soft plastic. The other day I dropped my MP3 player while deleting a new song and the earphones kept the player from hitting the ground - that's how well they stay in place.

Highest marks all around - a great product.

Package Type: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Overview
From a design standpoint they are pretty nice. The best feature is probably the way they fit in your ear. They come with three silicon pads for different ear sizes. Once you get the right sized pad on they fit tightly and comfortably in your ear, better than a lot of other ear buds I have used.

The cords are pretty standard for headphones, the plug is the standard 90 degree angle with a reinforced end.

Sound Quality
I've been using some ear bud type headphones with my Ipod and computer. I was excited about the in ear design (never really had a pair like that) hoping for better sound quality. I wasn't impressed with the final result. The output at the base frequencies was much better than the earbuds but the mid to high tones were not as good. This was especially true on the Ipod more than the computer. Overall I consider them not as good as others I have used.

Pro's
Flexible comfortable Fit

Cons
Acceptable but not wonderful sound quality

Conclusion
A serviceable set of headphones but you can probably find better.

When I first tried these headphones I could have sworn that they were twice the cost of the retail price. These headphones have a remarkable range for the price. The bass is full and clear. The sound across the board is unmuffled and distinct. I am very surprised and happy. The buds are soft and fit in the ear comfortably. I also found that the ear buds are a bit lighter than they appear. This product is heads and tails above the standard buds that come with your iPod/iPhone.

Pros:
1. Great Price
2. Great Sound
3. Good Range
4. Solid Bass
5. Light / Comfortable / Stylish

Cons:
1. In ear design can lose comfort after a bit and can lead to irregular sound delivery.
2. Range and Bass are good but not quite to the level of top of the line ear buds. Still great for the price.

A very good set of headphones that I will consider as a standard the next time I need to replace any of my headphones.
