Like most people I am on a budget. I try to buy the best product for the most affordable price. I bought the Skullcandy Ink'd 2 Earbud (Black/Red) a few years back in an effort to get quality for a price. I was disappointed. At first they seemed to be pretty good, but as I listened more and more, I found the treble was incredibly saturated. If you listen to rock, the cymbal work can come through sounding like shattering glass and distorted. The bass also seemed impressive at first, but over prolonged use I noticed it was just a false and under powered bass sound.
I finally decided to grab some earbuds that would give me what I wanted, a balanced sound stage with crisp mids, clear highs and punchy bass. If that's what you're looking for, then these earbuds are the way to go. For 30 bucks, they are double the price of most 'okay' earbuds, but quadruple the quality.
The bass is dynamic, able to deliver big sound without drowning everything else out on more electronic driven songs(2NE1 I Am The Best intro for example) while delivering punchy bass on rock and metal. The mid and high range comes through clearly without distortion and doesn't hurt your ears at higher volume.
The design is cool, though the way they go into your ears is a bit weird at first. The microphone for phone calls comes through clearly as well.
If you can only afford 10 dollar earphones, by all means, buy what you can. However, if you can afford a bit of a higher price, buy these, you will not regret it.
Phenomenal sound quality per usual from Sony; no muddy bass and every instrument is heard. I found these to be INCREDIBLY uncomfortable after about 30 minutes of gaming, but that could simply be that I'm not used to the in-ear style.
Great for those that can use in-ear style earbuds, stay away if you can't or don't know though!
I am a college student and dancer. I use these headphones whenever I choreograph, walk to class, ride the bus, and study. I actually lost a pair of these and ended up buying another for replacement rather than switching to another brand. If you've never been able to afford the expensive type of audio or tech, and want to dip your feet into what top notch audio may sound like, these headphones are an exceptional bridge from the low-budget common consumer to the professional world of audio. They block outside noise very well, provide surprisingly solid audio (great for bass lovers), and ensure great dependability with the sturdiness in its build. These are your go-to headphones when you walk out the door and head to class or work. However, if money isn't a problem, I recommend spending extra for higher end headphones. The playback control button is difficult to use (it works, but it's annoying) and there is no volume control. Although the buds feel sturdy, they also feel quite heavier than other headphones. Aside from the playback control and slightly heavier earbud weight, there's nothing really to keep you from saving a ton of money on these (Unless of course, money is not a problem). If you are looking for excellent everyday audio at an excellent price, I highly recommend these.
Noise Isolation - Outside noise is blocked heavily
Audio - Very clear audio; Above stock headphones (in other words: better than Apple headphones)
Bass - Strong clear bass; Highly recommended for music with a lot of bass
Various Earbud Sizes - Different earbud sizes for comfort; Helps further the noise isolation
Solid Material, Flat Wire & L-Shaped Audio Jack - L-shaped audio jack + flat wire + strong material = Extreme Durability (withstand drops with ease)
Dependable & Long Lasting - The audio withstands the test of time; very minimal loss in audio quality over time
Mass - Although they feel VERY sturdy (which is good), the earbuds feel slightly heavier in comparison to others
Bad Quick Access Controls - There is a button on the headphones to control playback; Although it works, it is sometimes difficult to control
No Volume Control - The button for quick access playback does not include volume control
FINAL VERDICT: These headphones are exceptional for their price. If you generally listen to music with a lot of bass, I highly recommend these. If you want an affordable upgrade from the stock headphones that come with your device, I highly recommend these. If you listen to music all the time and want to save yourself a ton of money, these are probably your best bet.
