The biggest problem with cheap headphones is that the mids and highs often sound brittle and artificial. Difficult to find an earphone with smooth mids and highs. The NE-700 while not the most accurate earphones out there does have a smooth, warm sound that is difficult to find in other earphones. So, my recommendation remains the NE-700 for now.
I do love everything I have purchased from NuForce, but these didn't feel as solid as other items from them. Perhaps that's why they are in the $30 range.
EDIT: My original review was 4 stars. I've dropped it to 3. After about two months, my NE-770X died. NuForce quickly replaced them under warranty, so their service is still good. But I had the same problem with durability with the older NE-6 and the NE-700X. They died after a few months and I had to have them replaced. I am not confident that the replacement set will last very long. Also, and this is the big problem, the replacement set doesn't sound as good as the originals. They are lacking clarity and sparkle in the highs. My original set was good (although not as good as the NE-700X), but these are just OK. It would seem that there is some variation from set to set, and I'm rather disappointed.
As of right now, I would say that buyers should avoid the NE-770X. You can do better for the money, especially given the durability issues and if there is inconsistency in sound from each set. Try to find the old NE-700X instead, or try a different brand. That's what I will do when my current headphones die.
I see the reviews with complaints on an earpiece not working, etc.
I've never had trouble with any of the Nuforce headphones until just now which happened after dropping my phone while holding it. After the cord saved my phone from hitting the ground (thank you!) the pull/snap on the cord caused one earpiece to go out. I'll send to Nuforce for repair. One of the other reviews mentions these don't stand up to rough use. High-quality stuff is usually more delicate. If you like good sound use the supplied pouch to carry your earphones and don't tug or bind the cords.
My current nuforce (700x) going out (due to phone drop) caused me to pickup two of these models. I was tickled they were so inexpensive.
I've had the 2 pairs for a week and used both of them. Neither has any problems. And they sound great.
Not as good, overall, as the 700x but these cost less than 1/3 of the price. In some areas they actually sound a little better than the 700x.
YOU HAVE TO LET THESE (ALL NUFORCE EARPHONES) BURN IN FOR AT LEAST A FEW HOURS FOR BEST SOUND.
Put you music player on shuffle and let it play at about 3/4 volume for a few hours.
These are the best earphones I have come across at this price range by a wide margin.
