UPDATED March 2013, review: The review above referred to the 2011 version of this product [with sliver-colored plug]. In 2012, I ordered another one. The newer version [with gold-colored plug], which appears also to have been rebranded, actually only gives you one of the sound channels. It does not combine the channels to form mono sound as the previous version did. In other words, if you listen to a stereo track, you will now miss half the sound. Very disappointing. [Updated rating: 2 stars]
- decent quality of construction
- plenty of low-end / bass
- expensive relative to competition
- poor mid- and high frequencies, which makes hearing voices (think phone calls) and podcasts difficult
I listen to podcasts on my walk from the train to my office each day, and prefer a mono earbud so I can hear things around me and not get hit by a bus during my walk. I have another mono earbud (also bought at Amazon, for about $6) that Iwas using and was hoping to get something better. Unfortunately, the mid- and high frequency response on these earbuds is poor. For people who plan on listening to music, and like a lot of bass, these are probably ideal. But if you're listening to voices (podcasts, books on mp3, phone calls, etc.), be ready for some muffled sound.
This earbud does an excellent job of reproducing the "old time radio shows." I have no problems with it. It's a bit bassy but the bass can be reduced using the controls on my IPOD.
The best feature of this earbud is it sensativity. I previously used another earphone, which I purchased from a local electronics suppply store. The earphone I previously used needed almost 100% amplification on my IPOD. This earphone needs only about 50%, to achieve the same volume level. That's a great improvement.
So, the sound is better and it's louder. It sells for a reasonable price. I recommend it but as metioned, I'm not able to evaluate its performance on music.
I love the fact that they come with three different size ear tips. I seem to have tiny ear canals, but the smallest size they provide is perfect for me. Anyone looking for a good mono earphone will be well served by this product.
Considering that a lot of folks use this for walking/running outside the manufacturer should have made these more durable. I have a popular brand PC headphones (that cost half of these) that have lasted me several years and are still going strong.
For the price, I expected better quality. I see no mention of this here, but on their website the manufacturer promises a 1 year warranty. I messaged the seller about the 1 year warranty and received an offer for a replacement.
UPDATE: Got the replacement today. So added a star for customer service!
I do like the concept, but will wait for the manufacturer to improve the quality.
