The headphones are great. They are a steal at $9.99 exactly, no shipping costs(if you buy from Amazon). The only thing I didn't like about them was how they said "enhanced bass". There was really no enhanced bass, barley any better bass than the i-pod standard headphones. The reason i got these was because they said enhanced bass. Still, overall, very good headphones.

I like this product enough to give it my first review. These are the best earphones I've ever had in this format. The design is light and blocks a lot of sounds. It has a great loudness to them with great deep base mid tones and Highs. The cord is long enough for my large 6' 5" frame to wear them and with my player in my back pocket.

The three sizes are great and make sure you test them to find your perfect fit. You want them to fit in snugly but not to create a vacuum between your outer ear and the headphones. I actually wear a different size from one ear to the next.

The only problem I have with these is that I continuously loose them! (or maybe people permanently borrow them) I'm thinking of adding some metal to the carrying case to make a sound if it hits the ground and some weight to notice if it slips from my pocket.

Great sound and price for earphones that sound excellent and can stand up to the Chicago red line underground

I have had my genius headphones for about a month and so far they have worked out great. If you keep them in for a while (Like, over an hour) they really start to irritate my ears but that could just be me. They have great sound though and I could hear a big difference between these and my old ipod headphones.

I don't have a lot of experience with earbuds, but when I got these i was suprised at the difference in sound quality. I have a zune hd and had the earbuds that came with that. I was never satisfied with the quality I received from those, as they sounded much worse than my speaker system at home.

I browsed through a lot of these earbuds. I am pretty critical on what i choose to buy, and always look at the reviews and overall score. I saw these had a decent score, but a low overall feedback rating, but i figured for only 15 dollars it may be worth the risk.

I'm hoping they won't break in the near future, like i've read that some competing earbuds have been reported to do. So far however, they work great. The sound is noticably much better than the earbuds that came with my zune. I'm very suprised and happy with the quality for only 15 bucks. It's nice to hear some bass while i'm on the go.

I would very much recommend these to anyone interested in casual use that doesnt want to spend a lot of money.

Just got these yesterday, and absolutely love the sound. So far they're comfortable, and the sound range is great, including excellent bass for the size and cost. I haven't had a chance to test out the noise isolation feature yet (I've only used them with my iPhone in the quiet of my home). And we'll see how they stand up -- I'm big on reliability, so if I encounter any problems, I'll update this review.

I was just curious how the noise cancelling ear plugs would work, but of course didn't want to spend a huge amount of money because of it.
I was surprised what I got for the little money I DID spend.
I tend to use them while I'm at work to blur out all the office background chatter. The plugs don't completely cancel out the noise, but reduces it significantly and people have started to throw stuff at me because I'm not responding.
If you ask me, that's a good indicator that they're doing their job.
However, during my workouts one tends to wiggle itself free and falls out my ear, but that's ok and something I can live with. Not sure if I would recommend them for jogging (but maybe my ears are shaped funny).
It's a 3.5mm jack by the way. That wasn't mentioned in the product description.
The cord also has a good length which was important for me...

I purchased these from another site over two years ago and they have been wonderful! I have twisted and turned and ripped these out of my ears too many times to count, and they still look and sound as if they were purchased yesterday. When my nephew asked for headphones for Christmas, I knew exactly what kind to get him. He's 6'7 and is very rough on all of his earbuds, headphones and electronics. Once he tried them he loved them too. The different size cushion covers are a nice extra. I have purchased much more expensive headphones and within a short time they have shorted out, began to fray, or pull. I believe that these Genius HP-02s could go up against a much higher priced brand any day!

Updated review- I recently ordered a pair for myself after my original pair were lost, and I have to say that the quality of the wire is not what it used to be. It's like they have tried to make a cheaper product by making the wires so thin. The first pair had really thick wires and this pair feels flimsy. 5 stars on original product. 3 on this pair. Price is reasonable though. We'll see how long this pair lasts....

The earphones not only block out outside noise, but they also deliver great sound quality. The buds stay in your ear comfortably, and for the money it's the best I've used so far.
