Try another pair...I should have.
L. Beller
When retracting/expanding the wires, they get easily tangled and often don't retract all the way, leaving you to constantly mess with it.
Gene Teglovic
I should have returned it immediately.

I wanted a retractable to keep in my bag, but this isn't totally retractable. The length of wire on the two ear pieces is asymmetrical, because you're supposed to wrap the non-microphone side around the back of your head. I'm sure this is a more ergonomic design, but it is a total hassle to put these on in a hurry (which is usually what I'm doing). Also, because of this design, a good length of earpiece cord doesn't retract.

Overall, not so good.

this is a nice product while it works, but I would recommend when I buy the next one to tie a small knot at the "jack" end. Multiple springed retractions back into the coil eventually pulls out the wire within the jack so I am left currently with only one earbud's working. If the jack-end is wiggled, then stereo audio returns, but this is annoying.

overall it would be better if they had made the product so that it doesn't fully retract all the way pulling at the jack

I thought this was going to be so awesome and big fail!! It was bad from the moment I opened the package. The earphones came out of the little round pod but wouldn't retract back...plus the ear phones felt like they were made or out the thinnest breakable material! I really thought this would save me from all those tangled in my purse moments. I called amazon and they immediately sent me a return slip via email...that's the one good thing from this experience!

These are the cheapest made - most overpriced retractables I have ever had. Fool that I am I bought a second set after the first one broke within one month. This new one only lasted a few days before one of the earphones stopped working. Not fully retractable and basically useless. Amazon should take these off their shelves.

Real crap

For some reason, this is the only retractable set of earbuds I could find, that also features a microphone for talking on an iPhone, and allows you to answer/end calls and stop/start music with the microphone headset.

The retractability is a very convenient feature for me as a commuter. When I get off the train and head to my office, I don't have to deal with wrangling my iPhone earbuds. A simple tug on the chord and they retract, nicely. For the most part. Occasionally there is some wiggling you'll need to do, but overall it works.

What you get in convenience, you'll pay for in quality. The sound is nothing special, and the earbuds feel cheap and flimsy. The microphone headset works well answering and ending calls, stopping/starting music and skipping to the next track. Call quality on the microphone is adequate, but nothing special. Unlike my Apple iPhone earbuds, people could tell they were talking to me on a microphone.

If convenience is the most important thing you're looking for, then these earbuds are the only game in town, and worth buying. But if audio quality is on the top of your list, I would suggest looking elsewhere. I still haven't decided if I'm going to stick with these, or find something that doesn't retract but provides better sound.

UPDATE: After about 3 months of use, the right earbud stopped working. I ultimately chose to go with a different pair of earbuds that I've been much happier with.

I read the reviews and decided to buy the headphones anyway. Huge mistake. Not only are they extremely difficult to retract, but they are also really heavy for headphones. Definitely wish I had listened to the reviews.

At first, I thought the earbuds were defective because one of the cable lengths was longer than the other. Then after reading the package contents, I realized that the longer earbud cable was designed to wrap around behind your neck. This design is fantastic! I have nothing hanging in front of my chest getting in the way. Genuis!

- cable retracts only if you're very cautious. There are other products on the market that do that much better.
- microphone and earphone sound quality is poor
- will not work with Nokia phones - be warned
