Great for the price
on December 20, 2011
I got this for $3 on another site. I was worried about the audio quality and construction given the reviews I've seen, but I'm solidly impressed with these earbuds. These things are loud, louder than the iPod earbuds that I used to use, which is great especially if you're on the plane and other noisy environments. This makes sense just by reading the technical specs, the impedance of these earbuds are lower than the iPod ones. Cord length is sufficiently long, maybe 3 ft or so. I now use these earbuds maybe 80% of the time and my iPod earbuds have become secondary since somehow the iPod earbuds started degrading. I treat my electronics fairly well, so this has shown any signs of breakage for the few months that I've had it.
Sound quality is always kind of an issue with most earbuds at this price point. These are not perfect, bass attenuation is still noticeable, so it sounds slightly hollow depending on the type of music you play. But the sound quality completely blows away other cheap earbuds I've bought in the past, and rivals the iPod set even when they were new.
