Customer Reviews

These have good sound quality & are durable.
J. Thompson
Ultimately, these headphones are a waste of money and I recommend trying out a different pair.
S. Chaudhry
The length of the cord from ear to plug is a bit too short.

I am one of the many folks who find the iPhone earbuds unwearable, so I went to my local Apple Store (hi, Oscar at The Domain!) and purchased the V-Moda Vibe Duo Earbuds (iPhone Compatible) in-ear headset. Fantastic sound quality, but there's no button. I didn't think I'd miss it that much--I don't get a lot of phone calls--but it turns out that I use the "pause" and "skip" function a lot more than I thought I did. Waking up the phone and unlocking it was getting inconvenient so, with regret, I returned the Vibe Duos.

Then I saw folks in an iPhone forum saying that the first third-party earbuds with a button were out. The Rivet earbuds (which, I notice, have lost their ten-buck discount since last Thursday and are now selling at full pop--too bad!) are indeed fully compatible with the iPhone.

I like the lanyard arrangement--they've done a neat job with that. Here's how it works: the bottom of the Y junction that you see in the photo is a fixed connector point. Above the mic button, there's another connector, but this one slides. To start, you slide it all the way to the top (up to the earbuds). Put this (large) loop over your neck. Now pull the earbuds back through it (slide the slider back down), making the loop smaller, until the cords are a comfortable length to reach your ears. The moveable slider sits at the back of your neck, so that even if you take out both buds, you still have the cord (between the two sliders) around your neck like a necklace. The clever part is that that moveable slider is actually split into two pieces.

I've had Shure e3c's, lusted after the 4c and 5c models. This isn't a Shure sound. It is however every bit as good as the original ipod ear buds. For me, they are better as they are canal style which means I can block out outside noises. Also the original ipod ear buds do not fit my ears at all.

What I truely love about these, and what makes them different is the cable. The cable is a lanyard style, which means it goes over your head and the buds go up to your ears from behind. This means that even if a bud falls out, they will stay around your head. Also, if you need to pull them out to talk to somone, you can just let them dangle around your neck till you put them back in. Awesome.

Also, the cable is the thickest I've seen of any earbud, and has a braided material around it that serves two purposes. First, they rarely tangle. Second, it is a much better insulator for sound being carried via brushing against the cable.

If you want the best sound out there, there are better choices. If you want very good sound, and a very reasonable cost (I lose earbuds in my travels all the time). Then I highly recommend these.

I bought these headphones about a month ago and it's already broken. The left earbud sound has been cut already. Also, when you're walking or making slight movements, you can hear the cord hitting against you and it messes with the sound of what you're listening to.

Sure these have a few troubling items, like, not being 10 times as high quality as the original headset, or having a slightly larger button/mic.

But they are lanyard style, which rules. It's so nice to be able to wander about downtown with my phones in, and when I need to communicate, just click the pause button, and drop the earbuds out of my ears, without any worries that they need to go in my pocket or whatever, they just hang around my neck, no problems.

The audio quality is superior to the original included headset. That's not saying much, since the original set is pretty poor quality, for Apple standards at least. The sound is equivalent to what you get when you press the originals into your ears and cover up your ears with your palms, but a bit better balanced. Not much, but, definitely better.

I got this set for $20, if you can find them for that price point, I would not hesitate to replace the poor OEM headset with these. Also, currently there is no alternative third party in-ear set that has "the button" so it's really pointless to consider them unless you seriously love digging around for your phone every time you want to pause for 30 seconds to interact with a barista.

The shure series garners high marks for audio quality, but if you're enjoying your music on your current headset but dislike the comfort issues, then you'll fall in love with these, certainly.

In-ear headphones take a little getting used to, it's odd how much more of the sound you hear, and because of that, it will sound "wrong" at first. Don't sweat it though, your mind adjusts fairly quickly, and the increased comfort level will have you addicted to this headset style for a long, long time.

I just received these in the mail. I bought them to go with my new iphone. They came really quickly. I haven't had them long so I'll give my first impression.

1. These seem to be pretty high quality, especially for the money. The fabric surrounding the cable makes me feel like these will be more sturdy than the headphones that came with my iphone. The headphones themselves fit inside the ear canal and block out a lot of background noise. I mainly listen to podcasts so the sound quality is more than for my needs.

2. The lanyard style is a little weird. The mic(with answer button) is located pretty far down the cord. This is because the headphones are designed to be worn around you neck. Worn this way, the mic is in close enough prominity to you mouth to work well although I haven't tried the mic yet. Upon contemplating I think I will like the lanyard style b/c my headphones won't be jerked out of my ears when the cable gets caught on something.
