Gonna stock up on these....,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic RPHJE120K In-Ear Headphone, Black (Electronics)
Got these earbuds to block out the annoying people in the library who for some reason hold social gatherings there. For 6-7 bucks I wasn't expecting much. The sound cancelling/blocking quality on these little earbuds is surprisingly good- so much so that even when music isn't playing I have difficulty hearing conversations around me- great for when I'm studying, but bad, say, when I'm running at night or when people are greeting me and think I'm antisocial for not responding back. Extremely comfortable and I can wear these for hours without discomfort (one reason why i chose not to get headphones that cover the ear completely). The sound is also a pleasant surprise and there's actually a "kick" present from the bass ranges.
The only problem I have with these earbuds is the lack of that sliding cord arranger that allows you to set the length of the separated earbuds. They often tangle as a result whenever i have to shove them in my backpack and its always a pain to sort them out. No idea about the durability of these but they're going strong after a month of fairly constant abuse that constitutes being crushed by my textbooks, liberal gym use, and being tangled in knots that even Houdini couldn't undo.

From Lifehacker.com, they recommended a small binder clip. This will help untangle the wires, plug you can secure the cord to your body when running. Works great.

Do look for earbuds made for running - I have some, and they allow outside noise in so you can hear if a car is coming up behind you. Much safer! I got the AURIA Exceed model just for running with.

Mark C thanks for the review. What is with the noise in libraries today? People using a computers and talking on a cell phones all the time and the librarians do nothing other than talk even louder than the loudest patrons. I do not expect complete silence like libraries used to be, but I really don't want to listen to someone have a job interview or talk to a bill collector or bf/gf, etc. These earbuds look like the perfect portable and inexpensive defense against the inconsiderate patrons of today's US libraries.
