They were working great.I like the idea of being able to change the tips to keep clean ones on them.The sound isolation was still good.
But like another reviewer has stated one of the internal wires broke and sound cuts out on one of the ear buds when the wire near the male jack moves around.I emailed the company to find out they only have a 3 month warranty.(((Update,I sent some in for warranty and the company sent new replacements))
I have many great very high quality noise canceling headphones.Like the
Panasonic RP-HC500 - Noise-Cancelling Stereo Headphones,which are incredible in all aspects of their use.
problem I run into lately is I can't use them in the place in which I work anymore.Shame cause they were as good or better than the high dollar Bose sets.
So I started hunting for in the ear noise isolating types.I tried all the expensive battery operated noise canceling type,3 different ones in all.Some did fair but none did great.
These Blockade brand cut out VERY Much noise.Only thing is you have to give them a chance while you learn how to actually get them put in.I know that sounds lame but you really do have to learn to pull back on you ear while putting them in.If you do they really cut out an amazing amount of noise.
I actually use these for about 9 or 10 hours a day.
Your ear canal will have to get use to having them in,and you will have to be determined to make them work out,(and they will)it took me 2 weeks of sticking with them for my ear canal to get use to the pressure of the plugs.
The push button volume control is a nice feature as well
Watch on Amazon and sometimes you can get them half price,I noticed the prices on these go up and down and I have bought them from different sellers and gotten some really cheap.($15.00 or so)

I gave these to my son, a percussionist who loves to play while plugged into his ipod. These enabled him to hear his music, play his drums and not have to crank the pod so high to hear music over the drumming. An ear saver, the plugs stay put, it's affordable and quality is good. The volume control is an added plus.

I'm a woodworker and an avid audiobook listener and they go hand in hand in my everyday life. At 55 my hearing isn't what it once was and some frequencies are now less audible than they use to be.

Prior to acquiring these while working and attempting to listen to my MP3 player using my regular earbuds was impossible. This product has solved that problem. Despite the high levels of BG noise, audio is now crisp and crystal clear and the BG noise is significantly reduced. One word of caution, you may wish to get a visual phone ringer signal because you certainly won't be hearing the phone ring if you have these on.

I gave the product 4 stars instead of 5 because of its lightweight construction. The materials used do not inspire a great amount of confidence in the products longevity under working conditions. That said, I'm very happy with these and recommend them highly.

I was looking for a pair of headphones to wear when I mow my lawn. These are great!! They are exactly what I was looking for - at exactly the right price point. They are not hi-fidelity, but at $35. they do the trick using my daughter's iPod. I just wish I had bought them sooner! All these years spent mowing with no music!!

I mow for about 2 hours at a time - it's my exercise and therapy - and found no ear fatigue or discomfort. Just followed the insertion directions and all is fine.

Can't go wrong with these babies!!

These sound good, not as much bass as my Bose, but I expect that. what these are GOOD at, is blocking out harmful noise. I use these when I mow, run the chainsaw, get on an AIRPLANE. These will SAVE your bacon when you get on the plane and the babies start wailing!!!! You'll be SO thankful you have these!

I bought a bunch of these off of woot a few years back when they had a two for tuesday deal. They are probably one of the best investments I have made in terms of music and ear protection.

I use these with my sony walkman while mowing, angle grinding and anything else that is loud.
They fit well in my ear, it take a bit getting used to because of the design of the plug, but it is well worth it. Used to be I would get done with mowing for hours and I couldn't hear very well for a while afterwards, with these in I can mow all day and still hear normally.
The on cord volume control is great, when I stop using a loud machine I can turn down the volume without pulling my MP3 player out. I keep the cord under my shirt and just press the buttons through the shirt with gloves on.

The only downside I find to them is that if I try to wear them while running the bumping of the cord against my shirt translates through the cord into my ear, as a result I don't use them while running.

I Recommend these to anyone who works with power tools, or just likes to block out noise, I can't hear people speaking right next to me even with the volume down.

These work really well at blocking out outside noise. They are easy to clean and come with an extra set of ear pieces. The volume control also has a mute funtion, (press both buttons). They do not have great bass response but they are not the worst that I have heard.
