All in all, the midrange sounds are pretty good, better than most cheap earphones. But if you are an audiophile, these earphones may not be for you. Bass is decent, but lacks a punch. Extreme high end sounds are sometimes difficult to notice.
That having been said, these earphones are an excellent bargain. Unlike many in-ear, bud-type earphones they can be worn for extended periods of time without pain or discomfort. They fit pretty flush with the contours of the ear, and come with three sizes of rubber ear buds. If you use the right size buds, they will not fall out or get jostled when exercising or jogging. They also effectively block out most sounds, so if you don't want to pay big bucks for sound cancelling earphones these are a cheap alternative.
The cord has a strap that goes around your neck. This is convenient if you want to hang a small MP3 player around your neck like a pendant. There's a small cord at the bottom of the strap for this. It's perfect for an iPod shuffle. Also, if you want to take one or both earphones out of your ear for a moment, they won't slide off your neck.
On the downside, the cord is extremely short. If your MP3 or CD player is too heavy to safely hang from the cord, or you want to put it in your pocket, you will have to buy a mini-cable extension.
All in all, if you want cheap, comfortable earphones and are not worried about premium sound quality, these are the way to go.
These headphones have been the best I have purchased so far. The neck strap is great because the whole weight of the cord is on my neck and not pulling on ears. They do a decent job at blocking out the noise. The music coming from them is what I expect from earbud headphones. The music isn't great, but ok. It makes the music easier to hear so you don't have to have them as loud. They are great for working out.
I thought these were a neckstrap style when i ordered and at first was disappointed to find a normal set of earbuds. After fitting the very comfy shaped and feeling earbuds i was/am amazed at the sound quality. I can't believe i have been settling for junk earbuds for years. The Bass sounds amazing. Reggae has the deep bass low end that thunders. Rock sounds outstanding. I'm certain there are other earbuds with even more bass but for the money these really bring the music alive. The rest of the mids and high range are extremely clear and realistic. Music sounds better through these earbuds than most home stereos or other sound systems i have heard. All in all, i am VERY impressed and will be purchasing another pair when these wear out due to the fit and value. With three sizes of earbuds i can't imagine them not fitting anyone. It is worth trying a pair at this price it won't break the bank either.. I've decided i can wear a stand alone neckstrap and still use these just fine.
