Great winding case, decent earbuds but no jackets - ?????
on November 23, 2013
Bought this primarily for the winding case (which is great btw), but earbuds have surprisingly good sound quality for the price - not audiophile level, but decent - very good bass, ok treble, good on mids, sound best when you do NOT crank the volume - very good for videos and audio books, loses some of the detail on music tracks, but not hideous - better than many earbuds that cost 5x as much.
Biggest issue with these is the bud part is naked (no cushiony jacket) and a bit large for girl ears (or at least for me - I have small ears) - so without a nice foam or silicon gel jacket to give some fit and "stick", they fall out and are VERY uncomfortable. Luckily, I had some standard-size foam jackets that fit this, so all good for me. Seriously lame marketing choice not to include them - dudes, raise the price by 50 cents and include some decent jackets!!!
Gave this 5 stars anyway for the nice windup case, which alone is worth the purchase - case has finger tip grip on bottom so you can wind-up and store fast and easy and snaps shut to keep your earbuds clean and tidy. Note that this case is designed for standard size earbuds and will not work with the longer in-ear buds, but those are bad for your hearing anyway.
