I purchased these after looking up what are the best headphones/earbuds for working out with and naturally leaned towards these for price. They have exceeded my expectations in how they work. Songs that would require me to press my iphone earbuds into my ear so I can hear it decently is no longer an issue. These make any song or video that much easier to enjoy.

My only and I say ONLY gripe is dumb, but here it goes: because I was so used to my iphone earbuds with the built in mic and those are white like these, I occassionaly forget that and will go and press my cord to take a call and then have to remind myself that it doesn't have that feature. First world problems, I know.

Buy these if you are active or just want a pretty sweet pair of earbud headphones or both.

I purchased these headphones to listen to at work, on the subway, while traveling, etc. I listen to my Droid phone and my iPad, and the sound quality is adequate. There's more bass than those white things that come with iPods, but not really a lot more, and the sound is certainly more balanced and less tinny. I really wish I had spent more for better sound, but that's just me, and I don't really think the sound quality was out of line with the price (I paid around $50).

I also like how they fit in the ears (I use the larger plugs). They can be pushed in very snugly to provide isolation from almost all surrounding noise, or if I'm at work and want to hear a bit of what's happening around me, I can push them in a little less. Fine.

The build quality, however, is poor. I take very good care of these headphones, and always keep them in their pouch in my backpack when I'm not listening to them. After about six months of use, the rubber 90-degree-angle mini-jack tore inside, leaving the metal jack itself disjoint from the heavy piece of rubber that makes the angle. I can still hear the sound, but now it can cut in and out when the jack gets jostled. Its days are very limited.

While not the best earbuds money can buy, these are lovely earbuds for the $40 range. I've bought two pairs for myself.

Build:
The first lasted a year and three months and the second pair lasted a year and a half of daily use and abuse. I was not particularly careful with these earbuds (shoved them in a pocket of my bag and left plugged in, or falling asleep with them in) and had I cared for them better, I'm sure they would have lasted at least two full years.

Comfort:
The tips for the earbuds stay on well and fit my ears wonderfully. (I used the medium sized double flange tip, the the wide variety of tip that come with up the chances of finding a pair of tips that suit your needs.) I could easily wear these earbuds for three or four hours, but eventually they caused a little pressure which became uncomfortable with very extended listening.

Sound:
While these will not completely blow you away, the sound quality is definitely in line with the price, and was a great value when I bought my first pair for $27. They are immeasurably better than the horrible things that come with iPods, and have better balance than even the Apple in-ear headphones which go for $70. They have reasonable bass and good balance and can take a good amount of volume before you notice any sound distortion.

Overall:
For me personally, these are not my go-to acoustic heaven headphones, but they are nice sturdy things which are at a price point that I'm not afraid to abuse them. They have good sound and build quality for their price point, and I highly suggest them for someone looking for under $50 earbuds.

An affordable upgrade to the earbuds that come with an ipod. These come with lots of soft rubber adapters to make the proper fit inside your ear. The volume slider is a great feature for situations where the player is in a pocket or jacket and you need to adjust the volume for some reason. The only part of the design that is weak is the right-angle plug. Be sure to grip the plug as close to its end as possible (the part closest to the ipod) when you remove the plug from the ipod. If you grab the right angle section and use it to unplug the earbuds from the ipod on a regular basis, eventually the metal plug that connects inside the ipod will separate from the plastic right-angle housing. I broke my first pair that way but like the product so much I bought a new pair.

After two to three months of use the right speaker died. And I didn't even use it that much.
Not Okay!

Bought these over a year ago to wear while working as a remodeling contractor rather than my expensive Etymotic Research ER4P. They don't miss a beat! Excellent seal via the various size tips supplied. Shirt clip to keep the works from slipping off. And stronger bass than the good phones. The cord is a little long but the in-line plug has saved them from being ripped apart when the cord catches on some protrusion. Sound is quite satisfactory for both the books I listen to as well as the wide gamut of music I love.
What more can one want? Oh yeah a very decent price. Good value for the money!

These earbuds are pretty decent, very heavy on the bass and are very loud. However there is a huge problem I've noticed when I got them, the highs and mids sound very stale and metallic. Vocals and certain rock songs are flat without roundness to the sound to give it that impact. Maybe the earbuds need to have a burn in period of listening to them for a long time, but as is they are not meant for a person who likes listening to women vocals or rock/alternative music. They're more geared towards rap and R&B type of listeners. They sound very good with songs that have bass, but then sound kinda cheap with rock instrumentals/vocals. My $14 dollar earbuds I have sound almost exactly the same except with a bit more roundness to the overall sound, but lack the bass.

So if you're looking for earbuds that pack a butt ton of bass then get these, if you're looking to listen to rock and alternative music then go with a cheaper brand of headset because they will sound almost the same as these except not as much bass.

I love Sennheiser. I have owned five other Sennheiser ear-canal headphones. I hate the CX 400-II. They sound like cheap gas station in-ear units that cost ten dollars. I have used them on multiple sources and they all sound the same. No bass, WAY too much high and just not the quality I expect from Sennheiser. Worst fifty dollars I have spent in several years.

Worked great when I got them, but after two months the left ear has about 1/4 of the volume of the right one. For the price, they should last a bit longer. I took good care of them, don't understand why they failed.

The sound quality is amazing for the price. These are also he best fitting headphones I have ever found. I run a lot and they never come out, but they're still comfortable.
