I got what I paid for...
on November 13, 2007
These earphones were so inexpensive, I thought they were going to be an incredible deal . The reviews were very positive, and as for the gent who said they were like an "AM radio"... well, I just figured he didn't push them into his ears far enough. I was wrong. After experimenting with the two different sized earplugs, cramming these things deep into my ears- and also wearing them lightly, I could not get decent bass or treble out of these. They just sounded very mid-rangey, muffled, and there was no deep bass whatsoever. I used my Sony discman for this test, and I KNOW that it produces very deep bass and crystal clear treble. Also, the specs online say these buds have 15mm drivers; they are in fact 9mm.
If you are shopping for a child, or just want some ok "sound", these are fine. But if you want to squeeze the most out of an ipod, discman, etc.- you better spend more money. I'm going to try the Sonys next. By the way, the build quality on these is excellent, just wish they sounded good !
