These came exactly as advertised, and work VERY well. The only reason that they don't get 5 stars is that they press very hard on the sides of the head. I'm sure this has something to do with my larger than average noggin, but regardless it took some getting used to/caused me a SLIGHT headache the first time. Now, to be clear, I've gotten used to it, and they no longer cause me discomfort.. it could be that I'm used to it, or that they're just broken in a bit, but either way, these are VERY close to a 5 star rating. I would recommend them in a second to anyone on a budget looking for brightly colored ear protection.
