My biggest issue with the previous model IDR655 headphone was the material used for the cord. This completely ruined these headphones as it caused too much microphonic noise while you moved around.

Scosche has updated the 655 with the new 656 model and completely changed the material used for cord. All my previous comments about the headphone remains: excellent sound quality with bass that has impact and the full control of an iPhone/Macbook with the included TapLine remote.

The sound is very engaging while providing great detail of your music. The TapLine remote has been updated and seems to be a bit wider and stronger. I had no complaints over the old one. Version III continues the excellent handling.

I have no problem recommending these, especially when you can find them for under $60.

The headphones sound good, that's for sure. However the cable close to the jack frayed almost right away so I had to wrap heat shrinkable tubing around it. That's holding up so far, but now the cable leading to the 3 way control is fraying. The rubber used in these headphones is very squishy and hard to describe, and this makes it a brittle material. There is plastic washer/slider to keep the headphones from getting all wrapped up in your pocket, but you cant even slide it up and down because of how soft the rubber is on them. I have to be honest and say, that these headphones are NOT worth the money. People tell me they cant hear me when I take calls on them so that leads me to think the mic is poor on it also. And one more thing, if you have an android they will not work. when you skip to the next song, it also redials your last call at the same time so you get dubstep, and grandma.

New one star rating. These headphones have 100% completely fallen apart on me, and are now in 2 pieces.

I've owned several ear buds and I'm happiest with these. The bass is excellent with great highs. The remote buttons are stiff and require a good press's but I'm used to it and have no trouble. I compare these to the Klipsh S4i and there is no comparison. I like these much better especially for the low response.

The only better sounding buds I've tried are the Westone UM1. I love those but they don't have a remote for controlling the iPhone.

*****UPDATE******

Three things that bother me about these ear buds:

1. The cords is made of a type of rubber that is tacky (sticky). It seems to get caught up on everything and tangles often.
2. The clip to hold the control is weak. I'm on my second one. The hinge has broken 2 times so now I don't clip it to my clothes any more. It's a little big and heavy so I liked it when I could clip it.
3. What's up with the price? I paid $45. Now it's closer to $130! They were a great value. Now, not so much.
4. There seems to be something wrong with the switch or the cord somewhere. When I move around the iPhone acts as if I'm pushing the middle button on the remote switch. The songs pause or advance to the next song. There is some kind of loose connection going on. I'm going to try for a replacement because I like the sound.

I emailed them and they said they would replace them under warr. I'll let you know how it goes.

These earphones produce much brighter high end than many earphones that I've tried and almost equal to my old Etymotics. The sound quality at the high end is a cut above the Klipsch S4, and when they are snugged in, the base is deep. The only drawback is that (so far) I have not gotten consistent comfortable fit with the earpiece combinations that I've tried. Also when I use them in the gym and get very sweaty, they seem to have some weird response where the volume decreases and some loud static appears.

After months of use:
I do not use them in the gym anymore. They have a problem with sweat, so I do not recommend them for heavy exercise. They developed a bad hum that remained a problem for weeks(!) until they finally dried out.

Bought these to replace an older version of a similar pair (which still work perfectly well). The sound quality is awesome; the bass in particular is strong and booming, but it doesn't seem to overwhelm the mid and high tones. Pressing the middle button of the wire controls two or three times to skip or go back tracks is a little tedious. Since they retail for $79 getting them here for about $35 was a really good deal!

I'm really disappointed in these. I had the previous version (now discontinued) and though less expensive, they were much better. The sound is tinny and crackles audibly at the high end. I guess they switched manufacturers or to using cheaper parts. It's a shame.

Overall, I think these headphones are okay. For those of you wanting superior sounding headphones, these ain't for you. I would probably put these on par with low-mid model headphones like Skullcandy or Sony. Feature wise, they're pretty robust. Inline mic, several different type/size earbuds, inline remote, carrying case, clothing clip; all stuff that is nice to have with any headphone purchase.

Sound is pretty balanced I'd say. Lows are pretty good as are mids/highs. Personally I prefer a little more bass in my headphones but these seem to perform pretty well so I can't complain. Haven't had mine for too long so I can't comment on durability. But since I go through headphones pretty quickly anyways, not really an issue for me.

Overall, I like these but I only paid $10 for them. Planned on using these at work so they should do well there. Not sure how these would hold up at the gym. Depending on how much you can get these for is really the key IMO. If you can get them for pretty cheap, I think it's a great deal. Anything higher then $20-$25 or so I think is a bit too much
