I bought the Creative EP-630s, hoping for an inexpensive upgrade to my Sony MDR-EX51LP Fontopia earphones. While the Sonys have served me well for over a year, I wasn't fully satisfied with their overall sound. At the same time, I wasn't ready to shell out the serious money for Shure, UE, Senn, etc.

If you're looking for great earphones in the $30 range, these are an amazing bargain--and a clear upgrade over the Sony EX51s. You will not believe how great your music can sound for such a small investment!

Creative EP-630 vs. Sony MDR-EX51LP

* Definitely clearer trebles - You really do hear nuances in your music that you never noticed before! This is particularly true with vocals and high percussion.
* Firmer bass - Slightly firmer and fuller overall. Not a huge upgrade, but noticeable.
* Construction - The silicon earbuds are nearly identical for both earphones. However, the stem on the Creatives is more tapered, resulting in a more secure attachment. In other words, fewer lost earbuds.
* Louder. On my iPod, I now keep the volume at 60% instead of 80-90%.
* Slightly smaller profile in the ear.

* Considerable more cord noise from movement (clothes, wind, etc.). Not sure why. This is the only real con.
* $4 more expensive? Slightly harder to find online?
* Because of the smaller profile, they are a little harder to insert in the ear.

Other differences:
* Straight plug instead of L-plug. It's a tiny disadvantage on my iPod nano, because I must now unplug my earphones before unplugging the sync cable.
* Cable feels more rubbery than plastic.
* Y-shaped cord instead of J-shape. I like the J-shaped plug of the Sonys better to hang behind my neck, but this is trivial.

Let me start of by saying that I have USED this for over a year and a half.

A day in the life of my iPod nano - pulling it, throwing it, biking with it, running/jogging with it, roll it up and chucking in the bag, untangling the cord when pulling it out, dropping the ipod and grabbing it at the last moment by the cord, rolling with it in my sleep etc. With such a life style every earphone started to give away after a few months. I needed something which does not tear at the seams, extremely flexible, should not loose shape, tough joint strength (ESPECIALLY at the PLUG) with great audio quality at a good price. This was a tough ask. But after ripping through 5 to 10 different brands of earphones in as many months, this CREATIVE earphone was the answer to all my wants.

Don't even have to comment on the sound quality, excellent in every aspect as given by the previous reviewers. The BUILD quality is amazing. First off the cord has a rubbery feel to it. If you tie a knot with the cord and untangle it, its all straight again. WOW. Secondly with all the bending and tugging at all the corners, it works just as great as it did the first day I got it. Mind you its going to be close two years. The only reason I happen to be reviewing it is that I was shopping around for a new ipod and came across this trusty companion. This will be the third ipod which will go on this same earphone.

Great job Creative, hope all your future products have the same quality.

I used to own the top of the line Shure E5c and loved them (I reviewed those also) but got rid of them because they were just too isolating for about-town use in NYC.

I do think these are a bit bass heavy (but then my other cans are Sennheiser PX200s, which many criticize as being too bass light - I think it's mostly a function of fit). But they sound VERY good for the price. They're small enough and cheap enough to wind around your fingers & toss in your pocket.

The only thing I don't really like about them is their thin, rubbery cord which doesn't drape well and feels really cheap. But you know what? I bet it was a conscious design descision because this rubbery cord is MUCH more impervious to tangling than the Shures I owned. It was always a mini-ordeal to undo the Shure cords because they had such "memory" that they tended to get tangled.

One other thing - I think they have a good balance of letting in the outside world while isolating enough to provide good sound. You don't have to push them in near as far as Shures to get a good seal.

Couple tips:

- I thought maybe I could try Shure tips on these, but no because the "neck" that the ear rubber fits around is too wide.

- Don't like wax? Here's a handy trick: go to your local drugstore and buy a box of alchohol swabs. They work out to about 2 cents a piece. You keep a couple in your pocket and when you need to take 'em out, you just wipe 'em down.

I bought this earphones recently and after I tried I can only say I do not regret buying them... as the previous posters said, they appear to be very well built and the sound is awesome...

Overall the EP-630 are a very good choice, they have a very good sound quality in all ranges possible, the bass feels great as so does the high's and low's.

If you're the kind of person that might use them more often while in the train going to work, or while just sitting somewhere (staying still), you probably will like to buy this earphones 'casue for the price you won't find anything better than this and the sound they bring is awesome for that matter... this are the earphones for you to get

Now if you're more the kind of person that like to use them while walking or doing something you might think about it... don't get me wrong, the earphones are awesome, but in this kind of situations they tend to be a little annoying 'cause of the amplified noise coming from the cables hitting your cloth, and sometimes because of the wind... (it can be solved... keep reading)

I found a solution for that and is a simple one, if you pass the cables through your t-shirt or whatever (the cables would be betwen your skin and the t-shirt), the cables won't be dancing all over while walking and will stay still so that noise is gonna be gone and bye bye anoying noises (at least that's what I do)

so if you're looking for some low cost well built with great sound earphones I'd say you just found them... I do not regret buying them, I'm quite happy with my choice...
