Phone just took a mighty blow, screen protector shattered but phone screen perfect. And, it still works fine with the shattered screen protector. Ordered another one.

Bought 6 of them for under $60 (i.e: less than $10 including shipment) one has fallen apart, after heavy abuse, but is holding together with some tape.

However, even so, the sound of these things is unbelievable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Had to scrape my jaw off the floor before writing this review, January 22, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The evening unfolded as follows:

Step 1) opened the package from Amazon.
Step 2) plugged into phone, played a random track (Rolling Stones, Love in Vain).
Step 3) Picked jaw off floor.
Step 4) Ordered 5 more pairs (less than $50 for all five including shipping), for wife, daughter, and presents for friends.

Search for perfect low-cost earphones over.
Not sure why I'm posting this as I might order more.
BTW - long time audiophile, 30 years of experience building stereos, speakers, etc.
Mystified by the 1 star reviews regarding packaging, price, quality, which all seemed perfect to me.
I will make a note though to follow up after a few weeks of use.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice sound, good bass, January 12, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Initially disappointing, no bass, then I realized that these are 'in-ear' earphones.
So, I placed them 'in-ear', and now I get it, nice sound, good bass!

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointing, October 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Somewhat disappointing results on OSX Mavericks, Macbook Pro retina:

Using BlackMagic Disk Speed Test:

1) Silicon Power 8GB USB 3.0 (this drive):

Writes: 13 MB/s
Reads: 32 MB/s
time to transfer 5 files total 4Gb in size: 4 minutes

2) Kingston Data Traveler SE9 16Gb usb 2.0 drive:

http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Digital-DataTraveler-DTSE9H-16GBZ/dp/B006W8U2WU

writes: 8 MB/s
reads: 18 MB/s
time to transfer same 5 files: 22 minutes

3) Corsair Flash Survivor Stealth 64GB USB 3.0:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008HK50ZA/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

writes: 32 MB/s
reads: 80 MB/s
time to transfer same 5 files: < 1 minute

Summary:

In a real world test of transferring 5 files, total 4Gb:

1. Silicon Power 8GB USB 3.0 (this drive):
4 minutes

2. Kingston DataTraveler SE9 USB 2.0:
22 minutes

3. Corsair Flash Survivor Stealth 64GB USB 3.0:
1 minute

I'm somewhat disappointed, it's better than USB 2.0 that's for sure, but much slower than my other USB 3.0 drive.
It might fair better if we normalize for the cost of the drive, as the Corsair is significantly more expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, September 26, 2014

Had this set for a month. The container/stand is a nice feature, pretty sure that I'd have lost some if not all of the pens by now not for this feature - it encourages you to keep the set together.

5.0 out of 5 stars a) it's not that easy to set up, September 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My review is actually both for the product, and for the seller, B+D Enterprises.

Product: 4/5 stars:
The product on it's own would get 4 stars, because:

a) it's not that easy to set up, and the scant user information is quite difficult to figure out.

For instance, while trying to set the temperature, which is done by holding down the right button for a few seconds, you can accidentally end up setting the temperature calibration instead, by holding down the left button.
So, for example, while you might thing you're increasing the temperature from, say, 400 degrees to 500 degrees, you could be recalibrating the device to read 500 while the temp remains 400!

The solution now appears to be to reset the device - and that information is not included, so you have to either return the device to Hakko, or scan the Google, for the undocumented solution.

b) the sponge they supply is a joke, it disintegrates in seconds.

Other than those points, it's an awesome soldering iron, best I've used in my 40 years of soldering.

Now, regarding B+D Enterprises: 6/5 stars
I initially complained to them that the soldering iron wasn't working (despite this clearly being a user error on my part), and they were quite willing to refund or replace the soldering iron, no questions asked.

1.0 out of 5 stars USB ports fell apart after a few weeks, September 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
USB ports fell apart after 2 months - ie: the plastic separators inside the usb ports fell out, then the pins got all distorted and fused together.
I don't know if it's my usage - I was plugin in a backup drive and unplugging it, once a day.
However, I haven't seen it before, and I don't think my usage pattern has changed.
