(1)The standard rubber plugs are not comfortable, and don't give very much noise isolation. The foam plugs are very comfortable and really seal out the noise. Be prepared to be grossed out by all the earwax you didn't realize you still had in your ears.
(2) Sound quality: 8/10. Not studio monitor quality, but very very good.
(3) Isolation: 10/10. Seriously. Use these on a flight and you'll gladly take a seat next to a screaming infant. Only problem is that you see the flight attendant's mouth moving as she asks you if you want a Coke or 7up, but you won't be able to hear her.
(4) When you first get them, you'll try putting them in your ears without success. Only after about the third try, all of a sudden the foam thingys go all the way inside, and you say, "So THAT'S how you put them in!" After that, piece of cake. You need to compress the foam just like you do with regular foam earplugs.
The quality is excellent,the cord is long and the case is nice. These will outlast a cheap pair many times over.Recommended.
Update after 2 years: I'm about ready to throw the phones away now. First the wire broke near the left earpiece and I opened it up and fixed it and taped it shut. Then the wire broke near the right earpiece and I did the same. Now the wire's broken somewhere in the cord. What it comes down to is, these are pretty delicate phones. I still think they sound great and are very comfortable but I suggest you buy the extended warranty.
The thing about the sound quality is you should ONLY buy them if you have an MP3 player or something with adjustable balance. These headphones have HORRIBLE balance (low bass, high treble), but, if you work with the equalizer on an iPod or other MP3 player, you can adjust to bass booster or rock settings to make the songs sound flawless and amazing. This truly brings out the quality of the headphones, although it is a little extra work.
Overall, if you're looking for a good pair of earbuds, these are the most risk-free, because you're NEARLY guaranteed comfort and (if you adjust the balance on your device) great sound. It just seems like earbuds are loved and hated by so many, since they totally depend on your preference for treble-bass balance and the size of your ears.

These are rad. I've had them for years and they are still amazing compared to other headphones. I have used up all the foam ear inserts at this point, but I'm sure they sell more. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Jonathan H.

These are okay for the money. You can do a lot better out there - Klipsch or Sennheiser
These are not so comfortable either.
Bass is lacking but highs are clear. Wires stiffen very quickly to the point that they pop the earphones out at nearly every movement.Published on March 8, 2013 by tdidriver
