Size: One SizeColor: Black
First off, I own several pairs of headphones, both in ear and over ear, and the iBeats are above and beyond anything I've used. The first step was finding the right fit (of the 7 tips included, I found 2 that fit perfectly, one regular mold, and the other the "Airlock" style). The standard tips are a snug fit, and allow the bass to hit fairly hard. I have a pair of Koss in ear headphones, and the Bass does hit harder, but the iBeats bass is much cleaner. The "Airlock" style tips fit snug as well, and I found that while in my ears, they were comfortable, but after long periods of wear, after removing them there was some slight pain. I also own a pair of Skullcandy Hesh over ears, and the iBeats again sound better than the Skullcandies. While I would recommend the Hesh to anyone on a budget looking for good sound for your money, I would recommend iBeats as well to anyone that can afford them. The ControlTalk feature is nice for the iBeats as well, and I've had no complaints from anyone on the other end of my phone. If I had one complaint it would have to be that the ControlTalk on cable volume and music control feature does not work on the iPhone 3G, but I recently upgraded to the iPhone 4 and cannot complain about that now. The thing I can't give enough praise about is the noise cancellation. iBeats block out almost all outside sound, and you dont have to jack the volume up extremely high to do it. Simply put, it is excellent. All in all, these are the best sounding ear buds I've ever heard, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to friend or family.

***UPDATE*** 3-11-2012

While I still rate these at a 5, the pair I reviewed in my original review are no longer fully functional.

Size: ..StereoColor: Black
Like the previous reviewer noted, its sounds like if these are comfortable to you, then you're golden. They come with four different sized ear buds; I switched out the larger ones for the one size smaller and they fit perfectly. I've been listening to them for 3 hours now and I'm having no problems.

In terms of sound quality - bass is strong, but not the largest bass presence. I prefer it this way, just because it clears up the mid and high range sounds much better overall. I listen to mainly electronica and classical and for these purposes I love these headphones. Honestly, the sound isolation is excellent and I can hear every note very cleanly, though it is somewhat subdued as compared to the jlabs I used to have (which unceremoniuously lost all sound in the right bud without any warning). On that note, I much prefer these, just because the music sounds much clearer and undistorted. For $15, they're an excellent value.

Size: ..StereoColor: Green, Black Verified Purchase
I have to admit that I was dubious of these when I first saw them. Ear fins do not seem like they would be comfortable, and I could see how it would be a problem. At first it was a little strange, but after using them for a while I do not even notice the fins anymore. The sound is good for ear buds that are only used to work out, and I actually use them just walking around. The bright yellow is a little intense for my tastes, but nobody really seems to notice unless I point it out. These work great for what they were intended for. The extension cable does not degrade the sound enough to matter at all, I actually did not notice any degradation, and since I do not own a iPod Shuffle, some of the reported problems with that system (which seem like a design flaw that that product more that this one) do not exist for me. Very happy with this purchase overall. It should be noted that those who are worried about different size ears should be able to find something close to their size in the pile of extras that come with this ear bud set.

The downside would be that they are not as high performing as some of the other Sennheiser audio listening devices. This is not all that surprising considering they are not designed for in depth listening but being active, and in that they excel. Even jumping around for four hours strait and slinging heavy boxes around does not move these out of place.

Bottom line: Highly recommend for working out, but if you want to sit and listen to music I would suggest a different model.

Size: ..1 PACKColor: Black
These are great earbud headphones. I bought these along with the Aiwa HP-V600 ($20) so I can qualify for free shipping. These earbuds have a much larger sound stage than the Aiwa. This is especially apparent when listening to classical symphonies. While Aiwa had much more Bass and was more efficient to drive (more sound/volume setting), the soundstage was small and muddled. It sounded like the entire orchestra was crammed in your bathroom. This was worsen because the Aiwa also picked up tiny details (the Panasonic also did too but to a lesser extent). This additional detail combined with a small sound stage gave an impression of excessive noise.
One thing about the Aiwa was that it fit better in your ears. It also shielded out background noise better.
One complaint about these headphones is that they are BLACK, not the GOLD color as pictured. The black color looks so Ordinary.
The bottom line is: If you want loudness and lots of Bass and you don't listen to classical or acoustic stuff, get the Aiwa. For classical music, especially if your player has a bass boost, get the Panasonic.
