With a good seal the volume is very good.
Michael McKee
I was not expecting much out of them and so was quite pleasantly surprised, especially at the sound quality.

Then I was quite happy with both the sound quality and the noise isolation.

I was pleasantly surprised that the RCA HP818 Noise-Isolating Earphones (Black and white) have a different texture to the earbuds that makes them a little more rigid than the typical silicon ones. Personally, I like this feel, because they tend not to slip out as much, especially while working out. For the price, the sound quality was decent: nothing dramatically impressive or disappointing. As far as noise-isolating goes, I guess it is pretty much exactly what you would get with any object stuffed into your ears, and for better or worse, blocks sound about as effectively as more expensive brands that don't advertise as noise-isolating.

I travel a lot and am always losing my bud headsets so was glad to get this one. It fit well into my ears and looked solid. Tested in on my iMac where i carried on Skype conversations using it and also listened to YouTube videos. It worked fine and the sound was of good quality.

The problem arose when I tried it on my iPhone. It simply did not work. I thought it might have been a loos connection so tried jiggling and twisting it. No luck. Also, if it was just a loos connection, the sound would have briefly appeared in the earbuds when the connection was temporarily restored. This did not happen. So, I don't know why but it just does not work with my iPhone.

While I do not consider myself an audiophile or audio snob, I definitely appreciate a good pair of headphones. My primary concerns are quality construction and audio quality. I listen to hours and hours of audio through my headphones at work each day, so I expect a good pair to hold up and sound good for at least a year and a half. While I haven't had this pair that long, I am impressed with what I've seen (or heard) so far. They are well constructed. It is highly flexible, light, and durable. It doesn't get snagged around my desktop as I shift around; instead it moves with me...big plus! The audio sound is quite good...not the greatest...but sounds really good. Recommended.

These headphones have a great snug fit in your ear and provide great bass and deep sounds right out of the box without a "burn-in" period. The plastic insulating the cord feels a little cheap and stiff, especially compared to the "soft" cord of iTunes headphones however its pliable enough to keep from clinging to my clothing/sweater. My primary complaint about these headphones is that the rubber material that the earbuds are made out of cause the insides of my ears to itch after an hour or so of use. This may just be my own sensitivity to earbuds, but these are the first headphones I have used that have caused noticeable irritation to my ears. Overall, they provide great sound and a great fit for the price.

I preface all my headphone reviews with a comment that I was an audio engineer and record producer in NY for a number of years - not to say that makes me better than anyone else, but it has made me extremely picky.

That said, these are a mixed bag. I found the construction to be exceedingly cheap feeling - I didn't have any functional issues, but the wires, buds themselves and the ear cushions felt barely better construction-wise than something handed out on an airplane.

The sound, though, surprised me. While I couldn't get a good seal even with the biggest cushion (and my ears are not bigger than anyone else's, at least as far as I can see), I still found the sound to be far better than expected. A bit midrangy, but that's very common, with highs that weren't soaring, but neither were they harsh, which was nice.

Bottom end was on the weak side, but again I failed to get a great seal - with better cushions the bottom did improve a bit.

I wouldn't spend big money on these, but for under 20 bucks they definitely deliver some value. My biggest concern would be how well they stand up to regular use. I'll give them to my son and report back if the die.
