I would like to start off by saying that these are my first pair of "expensive" headphones. Before I always bought skullcandy brand ear buds because I prefer in ear headphones, which is a mistake because they are low quality. These Lil' Jamz ear buds are amazing. Straight out of the box you can feel the quality of these ear buds, from the cable to the actual ear buds themselves. The sound quality is amazing, you can hear every little detail clear as day. The bass is perfect, not too much or too little. I would like to suggest for everyone who buys these to actually read the directions for fitting the buds properly to your ears because if the fit is perfect the sound will be as well. overall i am very happy with my purchase.
