    I was looking for a new set of earphones to replace my two-years old Apple in-ear earphones and after many tests I decided to keep these Logitech UE 500vi.

    My absolute requirement was to get a decent sounding earphone with in-line controls for my iPhone. I don't use the phone much for making phone calls but I love the possibility to control volume and play/pause/skip etc from the cable while my phone is tucked away in my backpack or pocket.

    I ordered (and then returned thanks to the great Amazon return policy) the following earphones:

    Etymotic ER23-HF3 - Extremely uncomfortable for my ear canals. I would really have hard time to fit them. Sound quality is very good but it would take me too long to fit them correctly and after only 10 minutes my ears would hurt (not for the sound but for the awkward position).

    Klipsch Image S4i - Again great sound but extremely uncomfortable for my ears. These units are built like a little cone with the base facing your ear canal. The edge of the cone would push on the inside of my ear.

    Ultimate Ears TripleFi 10 - I know, these do not have volume control on the wire but since the wire is replaceable I considered the possibility of making one my own from a cheap pair of iPhone headphones. Sound quality is absolutely impressive! The best I've ever heard. They are also quite comfortable. Too bad these earphones stick out a lot and not only make you look like a dude from outer space but there is no way you can use them leaning your side of you head on a pillow. These are professional devices and need to be used for that purpose. Too much for me!

    Sennheiser MM 70 iP - Good sound quality. Don't like the J wire too much (the right ear-bud wire goes behind your neck).

    I've been looking for a quality pair of earphones with mic and iPod controls for some time now ever since my in-ear Apple earphones cut off on one side, and it's safe to say that these Ultimate Ears will (hopefully) have me satisfied for a very long time. These earphones surpass the quality of all the models I've used in the recent past: Creative EP-630s (good, but the Ultimate Ears are in another class), Shure SE115-RDs (tones are too artificial and metallic), and even Klipsch S4s (which are similarly priced and are superb but just don't seem to feature audio that's as detailed as the Ultimate Ears).


    +Disclaimer: I'm no audio engineer. However, I do know that these earphones feature great sound--the entire range of frequencies from the lowest lows to the highest highs sounds wonderful with utmost clarity. I listen to a wide variety of genres from rock to classical to rap, and nothing has disappointed me so far. The level of detail that I am able to discern in my music thanks to these earphones is amazing--and with these `phones, I WAS actually able to hear elements of songs that I haven't heard previously despite having played them hundreds of times.

    +Numerous reviews for the non-mic-and-control version of these earphones complain about their lack of bass. Either Logitech improved the bass for this version, or those reviewers simply weren't wearing their earphones correctly, because the bass ranks among the best I have experienced in any pair of earphones. On a bass-heavy track, the low frequencies simply consume the listener without being overblown or sacrificing clarity.

    +The cord is essentially impossible to tangle.

    Style Name: EarphonesPackage Type: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    The Good:
    The Ultimate Ears 500 Delivers crystal clear sound with beautiful rendering of acoustic, rock, classical and hip hop.
    The noise cancellation works better than expected for most in ear earphones (you can barely hear someone speaking to you at 3 feet).
    The flat cable is nearly tangle free. It does exhibit some memory (stays coiled if you stored it coiled). The cable has a right angle at the connector and feels very strong. Also, the cable is 4 feet long (I measured it) which is great for taller people who put their mp3 player in their pants pockets.
    I'm 5'10" and I can put my iphone in my cargo shorts pockets and the cord still has some slack.

    Comes with 6 different ear cushions to fit any size ear, which is important to get sound isolation and optimize bass response.
    You really can wear them over the ear comfortably which helps them stay on better if your running.
    The packaging is elegant and is a page from the apple playbook.

    The Bad:
    The one fault of the sound quality of these earphones is the bass response. When listening to music that is bass heavy, the bass response is average (but still blows away any stock earbuds). If you primarily listen to hip hop or rap, these may not be the best choice for you.
    I wish these had a microphone. This isn't really a negative because they aren't advertised with a mic...it'd just be nice.
    When you run with these headphones and you rub the cords on your shirt, there is some cable noise (microphonics) which translates into a scraping or rubbing sound to your ears. If you wear the cables over your ears, this almost completely removes this cable noise with these earphones.
