First off, these are great sounding headphones. To echo what someone else said they don't have the overbloated bass found often in other headphones. Although, on the flip side, I would almost like a little more bass. But overall, less is more in this case. What does remain though is a nice, clean, and liquidy sound. Liquidy is a hard thing to find in a pair of headphones in this price range I feel.
So whats it's one problem? While I absolutely LOVE the look and design of these headphones (including the bungie cord texture and the magnetic earbud connection) it is the one thing that causes it's flaw. And that flaw is that because of it's rough texture, if it rubs up against something you hear it transfer to the earbuds, and thus interferes with the sound. While it is noticable to tell that sound from the music, it does distract after a while.
For instance, I used it while shoveling snow (that time of year)...I could hear everytime I moved. I imagine running or exercising in any way would be the same case. Now sitting still. No problem. Overall this one element brought the overall score down one star. Still an awesome and eyecatching set of earbud headphones, but not perfect.
*movable wire splitter to keep the headphones together when not in use
*has a fabricated cover (instead of rubber over the wires)
*different sized rubber coverings
*comes with a bag (with a magnetic close)
*has a removable stretchy pink thing (i wrap the headphones around my zune and put the eapieces through it to keep them from coming undone)
*if the wire rubs against you while they are in, it makes a noise, but when you listen to music you can't really hear it
*they are very noise-cancelling, yes this was a pro too but it can be annoying because you cant talk at the same time (this is true for all headphones), but you can take one out and stick it to the other with the magnet and that works fine
These are very nice headphones for the price (a few of my friends have commented on how nice they are too).
I would highly recommend them.
the only thing that stopped this from getting 5 stars is the cloth cable. While they are attractive an stay cleaner and less knotted up that the typical black plastic cable, they transmit a lot of noise as they move across your clothes. was more distracting initially, but i've learned how to avoid moving the cable too much.
bottom line: great sound and comfortable fit and priced to make them an excellent choice.
****One Year+ Update*******
I use these phones almost every day so they have a fair amount of wear. I don't wear them while exercising, just walking or listening to podcasts in bed. I haven't really beaten on this pair but I haven't babied them either. They have held up well though not perfectly. The cable herniated through the woven covering in a few spots. This happens if you let it knot up and pull it tight*. The cables resist tangles but aren't tangle proof. I still think they are easier to keep straight than cables insulated with ordinary rubber because the fabric isn't as sticky. The rubber boot over the audio jack started to split a few months ago. I wrapped thread around it to prevent further splitting.Read more ›
