Product Description

Ankit earphone is what resulted after über style and premium sound quality got away for a weekend in Miami! Our "FORBIDDEN" 3D Metallic snakes are about details with fiery, yellow eyes, a red belly, wires coming out of their mouth and with a bitten apple for a stopper. Soooo, Adam & Eve! Features: ¤ Sound Quality -- These earbuds might only cost you $50 but the sound quality is at par with (and better in most cases than) those sold for $100+. ¤ G-bass Technology -- Through innovative driver development, Ankit maximizes your listening experience by putting G-bass technology in every earphone. It enables a better response to lower frequencies (the bass), and also softens high notes that can get too sharp and hurt your ears. ¤ Ergonomic -- The special curved design of the earplug adheres to your ears naturally and more effectively than straight, bullet shaped earphones. This helps you wear the earphones comfortably for longer. ¤ Noise Isolation -- The curved design, along with the round driver case, creates a better fit and seal. The drivers in the earplugs are also shielded by a metal inlay. This increases noise isolation, and helps deliver clear sound in noisy places. ¤ Custom Fit -- Designed to fit all different ear sizes (except the gargantuous ones!). Comes with three earbud tips sizes - S, M, L. These tips are also designed to resist dirt and dust. ¤ Compatibility -- The gold connector (3.5 mm.) works with all mp3 players (iPods, Zunes, Sansa,...), gaming devices (PSP, Nintendo DS,...), iPhones, and even with portable CD players (if you still use one of those, please buy a MP3 player first!). ¤ A tree planted for every earphone! ¤ 2 Year Premium Warranty Designed in the USA. Committed to make the earth cooler, one earphone at a time!

Love the look, I don't get my headphones confused with anyone else in the house.

They have extremely heavy crystal clear bass which makes your head thump.

Like the customer above, I also purchased the Ankit earbuds after my Lady GaGa Heartbeats threw the towel in on me (Refer to profile for my review on the Heartbeats)

At first, I was very skeptic of the quality of these headphones; I assumed that they were just fashion statements, and couldn't do much as far as sound quality went. Well, I was wrong; in fact, they turned out to be the best set of earbuds that I've purchased.

The Ankit Earbuds are a new-gen pair of earbuds ergonomically designed for comfortable fit, and better noise isolation, and they serve their purpose perfectly.

These headphones fit the contour of the outer ear, and stay in place. Despite the design of the earbuds, they are not large at all; they are a reasonable size to flaunt their detail, and the right size for comfort. And, unlike the Heartbeats they're ironically not heavy.

And what I mean by 'ironically', is that the piece where the designs of each Ankit are located, are constructed out of metal. The metal helps provide further noise-isolation, and are sturdy; the quality of the paint is phenomenal. No chipping, no messy paint-job, nothing.

The earbuds offer multiple silicone fittings to allow you to find the fit that best suits the contour of your inner ear; they also feature layered ones that allow more acoustic depth.

Also, what's so great about the quality of these earbuds, are what's called the "G-Bass Technology". The company worked diligently to create a bass-tech that delivers clear sound, allowing your earbuds to pick up the lowest of notes as well as the high ones, while also softening them to keep them from 'shrilling'.

After wanting some stylish earphones, I got the Lady Gaga Heartbeats In-Ear Headphones (Rose Red) which had nice sound quality, but where so heavy they where constantly falling out. On top of that, the awkward size/shape was so painful I had to get rid of them after just the second or third use. I was really miserable with them.

I was flipping through Rebel Ink and I saw an ad for the Ankit headphones, "ergonomic design with sound quality comparable to the beats by dre series" the review said. I thought I'd try it out, for $32 I got FANTASTIC buds. I swear, the sound is BETTER then the $120 heartbeats! Plus! the little embellishments are so cute and unique, I wont see many people wearing these I dont think. The metallic buds are really eye catching. They are super comfy too, and come with 3 sizes of replaceable earbuds to use to your comfort.

The other designs looked so cute, but I thought the snake/apple reference was cheeky so I got these. <3 I love them, I adore them, great purchase, highly recommend it! ^^

Like so many other customers i've read multiple reviews on earphones. I've picked up a few from good to great reviews. I've also had some of the more expensive brands in the hundreds of dollars not live upto expectations and customer reviews. Any review that states you have to burn in (play for 30 plus hours on the highest setting) your earphones to get the bass right isn't worth it. They should work right out the box, not break them in.

I am happy to say these are the best i've ever had. The bass is great. I didn't expect this product to have the sound quality of bose for a fraction of the cost. I've often picked up earphones that had no bass and had a "twangy" sound where the "boom boom pow" should be. I've also had the kind that actually hurts your ears cause the treble is just way too high. I'm often watching netflix on the train in NYC with my Droid or listening to music while walking about and these are impressive. The look of them are interesting. I have the skulls and my fiance has the snakes. They are noticable amongst all of the white buds you see everyone else wearing. They have a little weight to them and as long as you find the right eartips (comes with a variety of styles and sizes) it fits fine. Remember when you get these finding the right tip means getting bass or just noise. Size matter here. The length is okay for me and the noise isolation works well. For those of you who never had the isolation it will take some getting useto.

If your passionate about music then you do them a disservice if you don't have the Ankit G bass technology in your ears.

The sound is unbelievable for $29.99 earplugs. I was easily able to get the suction tight fit with the different sizes that came with the buds. Like other reviewers mentioned, they are a bit heavy so I have to adjust them when I exercise sometimes but that is really a non-issue when up against the positives. The base is really good and I don't have to crank the volume up all the way like i had too with my Klipsch SI4's(Which I no longer use and cost over $150.00 more!). The cord is almost tangle-free plus they look great and seem well-made so far. I use them with my HTC Incredible. Way to go Ankit!

I bought these based on all the great reviews it received. My first impression was, "Wow, awesome sound!". I compared them to my sonys and found the sound quality was a dramatic difference. The bass tones are low and powerful while the highs are crisp and clear. It made my sony ear buds sound muffled. The problem I have with these is that, after I found the ear piece that fit my ear best, they don't stay in my ear if I'm moving around. They are heavy, so the weight keeps pulling them down when you move around. Since I bought these for my workouts at the gym, I'm unable to use them. I gave them to my nephew and he loves them. He says that they are the best sounding headphones that he ever had. My recommendation is, if you plan on using these for your walks or workouts, it probably won't be the ideal set for you. If you want to sit and listen to amazing sound quality, buy them.
