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

The product was just not good at all. Customer service is horrible. There are better products for the price. Worst company in the industry. Read morePublished on May 15, 2014 by RMH
Love the controls for volume, skip forward and back, activate Siri. Great sound with good bass and midtones. Also great as a hands free mic/headphonePublished on July 16, 2013 by Kabilyo
The main issue I had with these earphones is that the clip that fastens the wire to your clothing broke on the second time I used this item. Read morePublished on June 2, 2013 by Pushkin
They sound good in a quiet room, but won't block out much ambient noise. Also they get really uncomfortable in the ear after a short time wearing them.Published on September 14, 2012 by Chris
