Sound quality is very good.

The wire itself is first wrapped in a thin rubber casing, and over that is woven nylon or something similar.

One thing is for sure, I have resolved not to buy anything made by this company.

I bought these because they had great reviews on [...]

These little guys have excellent sound quality for the price, however if you move your head at all you will hear loud popping sounds as the seal you create with your ear changes. Sometimes head movements will impair the headphone ability to produce sound giving you 100% sound in one ear and 20% in another making this the perfect headset for non moving individuals or corpses.

If you are still in the land of the living however I would skip on by these headphones and try out Etymotic Research ER6i Isolator In-Ear Earphones (Black) These were my old headphones and I was much happier with them as they have a filter system that fixes the issues stated above.

I like the sound of these earphones but it only lasted me a month. I ignored a reviewer's pan on the seller, but I would like to let you know that the earphone you will get is a crapshoot. Maybe you'll get a better made product or maybe not. It's too bad for the company's reputation because these are good earphones when they are working. One thing is for sure, I have resolved not to buy anything made by this company.

For the price, they don't get any better than this. The sound is neutral, with excellent, though not overblown bass (one of my pet-peeves). Mids and highs are open, with clarity and inner-detail that rival my Etymotic 4P's at almost four-times the cost (the Maximo's frequency response is actually better than my Ety's, adding what seems like another octave to the bottom-end). And the Maximo's actually have very commendable sound-staging with good front-to-back depth. My only (very minor) issue is that the overall sound leans a bit towards the dry and analytical side. But not to any degree that I would hesitate to recommend them to a friend. Additionally, the cord is very micro-phonic, which can be irritating during exercise. I found that by routing the left and right cords over and around the ear to the back of the head, then cinching up on the slider close to the base of the skull virtually eliminated the problem completely. Headphones at this price point simply should not sound this good!

I loved these earphones when I first got them. They are great for isolation and have great sound quality. Unfortunately, they only lasted TWO WEEKS! After two weeks, I lost sound completely in on one side. As I was still within the return period, I returned the earphones in exchange for a new pair, hoping I had just happened to get a defective set. Well, the second pair has lasted me two months but now the same thing has happened. For $50+, I would expect higher quality, or at least headphones that last longer than two months at the most!! I am now past the return period, and cannot return or exchange. So I have basically completely wasted my money on these earphones. Do yourself a favor and save the money. I bought a pair of earphones to replace these for $3 and so far am experiencing much higher quality. Go figure.

Recommendation: DO NOT BUY

It's like hearing music by the first time. There's a lot of eartips to test, the sound quality is amazing (to any genre of music - rock, classical, etc etc), and, the most importante, the warranty is awesome.

My earphone got spoiled: the Maximo's support received the defective earphone, fixed it and returned it to me in 1 month (I live in Brazil).

Great phone, great company.

Overall I really like these headphones. They sound really good for the price. Not so great on the bass but what do you expect from an ear bud. I had issues getting them to stay in my ear until I found the right combination of the outside silicon covers to use. Not they fit great and haven't had a problem with them staying in since. I work in a very noisy environment and I have to say, when i have these in with some music on at a moderate volume, I can't hear anything else going on around me including when someone is next to me trying to talk to me. it's fantastic. I would recommend these to anyone. I think the only negative is my inner ears start to hurt from the pressure of the silicon covers on my ears after a while but it's not horrible. Also the bass isn't the best either but for the price, I didn't have high expectations from the bass.

I really have not gotten to use these much so far but I am pleased to this point. As in the review I read in MacWorld, out of the box they sounded somewhat tinny. After a couple of uses the sound is mellowing and they do sound very good. The earpieces do fit pretty well and I will use these for a bit more to see if I want to replace the tips with custom made ones. The braided wire is a little strange but not objectionable. I'll wait to see if they can be cleaned easily when I get them dirty. I use these mostly when I work outside and I'm sure they will get dirty.

As I said, to this point I would recommend them.

I have to write this because I haven't read any review on the build quality of this earphone. All the good reviews and cheap price should have raised the red flag but I failed to see it, so I bought it.

The outer cover for cord is braided fabric. It kinks and frays very easily. After about a month of use I started to see the outer cover for the wire kink and fray in multiple places. The inside rubber insulator was exposed and bent, eventually the rubber insulator tore exposing the wire.

45 bucks for 3-4 months of use. That's a bad deal.
