i bought a pair of these three years ago at a disount store and instantly liked them the first time i plugged them into my ipod. I threw the packaging away and forgot the name of them, so when they started to not work well anymore i was desperate to find them again. So i examined them closely and found the "a4tech" etched into the connector. Search on google and found them on here. This time i was safe and bought three pairs, if experiance proves right i will have a working pair of these for years to come. They are durable, that is for sure, over the past three years they were stretched, pulled, smashed, & in the sun and everything else and survived. My favorite thing about them is the deep bass sound.

Arrived quicker than expected in perfect condition. Quality construction is apparent, cord is a little springier than others I've owned and a bit longer than Apple's standard issue with the gen2 Shuffle. The fit is solid (3 sizes of silicone adapters included) and comfortable. Compared to Apple's they're pretty much better in most every category. Outside noises are more muted so conversing is also. A welcome advantage in street use. Would highly recommend to most anyone. Only caveat is a lack of strain-relief where the cords separate to each bud (the most likely point of eventual failure).

Now I've had these a few weeks and eventually tried the large size silicone adapters that come included. Then I included the "FiiO E5 Headphone Amplifier" that I'd previously purchased, and was pleasantly surprised! These adapters seal well and seem to be thin enough to additionally act as speaker-diaphragms, dramatically boosting the drivers bass delivery. The overall sound quality is exceptionally well nuanced throughout, reminiscent of monitor-style headphones. Add another star..a really a terrific value!

Thus is the 3rd set I have purchased for myself and friends, although not all from Amazon.... by far the best set of earbud headphones I've had... the 3 different silicone inserts make for an easy fit to any ear, and they block out everything around you... great for cubefarm environments to block out others on the phone around you... would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a good, versatile set of headphones...

I bought mine in a airport several years ago and love them! the only reason I use other one EVER is i need a mic or I forget to bring them and have to buy another set. They are the only ones that I can wear for long periods of time with out getting sore ears. the clarity is better than the $40 dollar sets I have tried. and I listen to a very wide spectrum of music from classical to blue grass and rock to country. I do think I can listen at a much lower level and get the the feel and sound. I have been trying to figure out why they are so different - is it the hole in the end combined the the stability of the metal frame?

I was pretty excited about these earphones after reading some of the raving reviews. But, I've now learned to never trust a review on speaker products unless the reviewer goes into detail about what MAKES them good... not that they're "better than this" or "cheaper than that" or "really really good".

Because none of the above praise is true. These earphones have no mid-range. An entire genre of rock/metal music is made unbearable by these phones. They're also terribad for bass. Deadmau5 sounds like garbage. The bass sounds hollow, shallow, and weak. The only type of sound these might be good for is audiobooks, or maybe Enya.

Not only is the sound quality very lackluster, but these things are just plain irritating to wear. It takes 5 seconds to put them in, because you have to shove them so far forward into your ear canal for the sound to be decent at all. Then, they feel... just bad. It feels like I've got a cue tip stuck in there. I wouldn't mind this if they were a good fit, or "noise canceled", like they claim to, but these do neither. They're easily knocked out or fall out, and then you have to go through the trouble of putting them back in again.

These suck. Whoever reviews these as good, or recommends them, knows nothing about sound quality. There's no excuse for bad sound, not for the price, and not for the look. You can get better for the money. Even Sony's Fashion earbuds are FAR superior to these.

Reduce outside noise and sound excellent as far as I am concerned - much better at staying in place than the set that came with my iPod. Price very reasonable.

I had high expectations from this headphone until after a week when my black headphone just stopped working.I had to toggle the wire to hear the music.

I received the item at the estimated time but I haven't opened it yet to see how it performs.

This product isn't durable. The first day I recieved the earphones, I sat on them and the right ear broke. I was very disappointed. But the base is good
