Second Review


I realized the last review for this product I had titled "Alright I guess" can be very confusing. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I wrote it. This is kind of an update to it. These earbuds are great if your using something like Apple's default...

Good for your average user. Much better than the default earbuds that come with an Ipod or something

I purchased another set of the $20 Skullcandys I mentioned in my previous review from my local electronic's store and after comparing the two I was blown away by the difference in sound quality! When I said "My previous $20 Skullcandy's purchased from...

Alright I guess


I guess these aren't bad earphones, as they are comfortable, loud, and, well, very comfortable. As time goes on my ears are becoming more and more...Audiophileish like. I didn't full recognize this until I tried these earbuds on because of how fast I...

Good bang for your buck. Decent earbuds, decent sound quality at high and low volumes ; Comfortable fit, high volumes can't be heard from more than 5 feet away

I feel that the highs are tinny and the lows are virtually non-existent. By messing with an EQ for some time I managed to somewhat fix my tinny highs issue ; The title of these earbuds, "w/ LiveBass" got my ears perked up as I dearly enjoy some heavy...

Best $20 you can spend...


Well, I can't speak for longevity, because i just broke these out of the package, but WOW. This is the first pair of aftermarket headphones I've owned (but not the first audio system) and they blew me out of the water for only 20 bucks. The "Live Bass"...

Haven't had them long enough to say

So, within a week of ownership I ended up sending both this and my Sansa Clip into the washing machine. I can't say much for the Sansa Clip, but these headphones made it out bounty fresh, with great sound to match ; As far as mid range headphones go,...

I cut my hand with the razor sharp plastic packaging. Rivals my CutCo cutlery, which I also sliced my finger with. I don't do so hot with the sharp edges

Best low-price earbuds on the market


For the price, I promise you you'll never get anything better.

Amazing sound clarity, great bass for earbuds, interchangeable earbud covers for different sized ears - so no matter who you are they have a well sized option for you in the package. Lengthy cable for easy access to any audio output port on your...

Only con is that the type of earbud cover that sounds the best is the cloth-type that comes with it, but these slide off rather easily and both sets of these were lost within the first few weeks. They sound perfectly fine without these however, and the...

I'm not an audiophile, but these earbuds sound really amazing! Full range and surprising bass. Going to buy a couple more pairs

Awesome Earbuds


For the money you just can't beat them. (Also Newegg rocks!)

Best earbuds I have ever owned. Great quality - excellent bass. Cable slider comes in handy. Nice little case and extra ear sleeves too

Bottom line: just buy them.


They don't cancel outside noise much. I'm planning on using them mainly at work with only one side in, so I'm ok with this. The smaller set of rubber expansion rings + the elasticy cloth pads feel pretty comfortable. The draw-string bag is a nice...

They basically sound as good as my aging open-aired Sennheiser headphones, except you can't hear them across the room like you can the headphones. I'm no audiophile, but I'm very happy with the bass and sound quality in general ; They weren't crazy...

Only the left channel works in my 1/8" to 1/4" adapter. I think it's just the adapter because they work fine in any 1/8" jack

Very good for the price


It doesn't beat the sound quality of my microphone headset, but it gets close to it. The problem with earbuds is that they always lack bass. The "LiveBass" feature doesn't make bass too powerful or blurry, it just compensates for the usual terrible...

The lows sound very good and are well defined. The highs are clear and don't sound "cheap ; Very comfortable, by far the most comfortable I've ever tried

The mids are a little bit quiet

Excellent and inexpensive


As a casual music listener, these earphones were perfect. I cannot complain about the sound quality which was excellent and very clear. However the foam covers were poor quality and fell apart in a short time. The cords tangled very easily, and I...
