"Amazing sound quality, I have powerbeats2 for training and better bass, but also better highs and mids, I also have sennheiser over ears and they are nearly as good, I use comfort fit tips with them to get them to hold on and block out more ambient noise, great in ears, was very surprised when I got them just for listening while I'm in bed"
_
"I was a little worried about the outer part being abnormally large and odd when they are in my ears, but it doesn't really bother me, and in fact it feels very comfortable...COMFORTThese are one of the best fitting ear headphones I've ever tried."

Fit

Fit:

"Fit is not that great as it doesnt go well in to the ear canal."
_
"But that depends hugely on whether or not you can get a good fit."
_
"Great headphones though they are hard to keep in the ear; but then I have never found any that would fit mine, maybe my ears are not meant for in-ear ones."
_
"The tips weren't great either, didn't have a size that fits in one of my ears."
_
"I was kinda disappointed because they didn't fit right at first."
_
"Fits perfectly Amazing Audio Quality Awesome BASS comfortable!"

"Amazing - fit all ears and super comfortable! "

Music

Music:
"Had a case for them, however 2 months later the left earphone broke and wasn't playing music"
_
"They look very bad in ear and if you are going to use this for the gym it is really annoying when the music just stops due to the button."
_
"these headphones sound very nice highly recommend them to everyone that enjoys listening to music the only drawback about these headphones is that I've experienced that hopefully no one else ends up dealing with my situation I had the pair of headphones for not even a month and one of the speaker's gave out but the good news is I called sol Republic and they told me that there going to give me a replacement pair free of charge and yes the official website has an option that gives you the ability to file a complaint if anything's wrong with your headphones via their website or other stores and even Amazon"
_
"Unless you are sitting down or not moving a whole lot, these headphones are really bad at preventing those annoying thumps from distorting and covering up your music."
_
"Actually had me seeking out older albums and recently acquired music to re-listen for details I had been missing with my recently lost earbuds."
_
"With that in mind, after the first month the volume rocker began to pause my music randomly which after a while became really frustrating."
_
"Vocal clarity is great for both music and phone calls."
_
"Another great headphone for those who love their bass, and music in general!"
_
"Awesome sound , comfort , able to enjoy listening to music for hours."
_
"They are so comfortable that I sometimes forget I have them in my ears when the music isn't playing."
_

Noise

Noise:
"The complaints about cord noise are a bit exaggerated, in my opinion."
_
"Even with the largest rubber buds on them they don't do well at blocking outside noise."
_
"The best thing, it's isolate you from any source of noise and clear soundWoooorth it."
_
"I use them at the gym and they are very lightweight and cancel outside noise very well."
_
"The seals in the buds are good so a big chunk of ambient noise is cut out, and that certainly enhances the audio quality."
_
"Amazing sound quality, I have powerbeats2 for training and better bass, but also better highs and mids, I also have sennheiser over ears and they are nearly as good, I use comfort fit tips with them to get them to hold on and block out more ambient noise, great in ears, was very surprised when I got them just for listening while I'm in bed"
_
"Great sound, awesome bass tones and great noise cancellation and cool looking."

Price

Price:

_
"They are an excellent upgrade from the horrible cheap models found in most stores."

Sound

Sound:
"They are bass heavy without being sloppy, which is nice for riding since that tends to be the sound range that loses it's punch when matched up against freeway and engine white noise (or airplane noise, for that matter)."
_
"The sound is very hollow and lacks what original i4 sound engine offered very disappointed since i thought these companies like sol really cared about people's wants in sound quality."
_
"The sound quality is fair, but not great."
_
"The sound is not very good compared to my Skullcandy ink'd in-ear headphonesSo overall they feel cheap, sound is decent at best, fall out easy"
_
"The sound is not spectacular, but alright."
_
"but sound is not comparable to the great HD headphone."
_
"Great sound and durable."
_
"Sound incredible, super durable."
_
"I bought them a little over a year ago and they have no signs of ware and still sound great!"
_
"These are some of the best sounding headphones I have heard for the general listener."
_
"I've been using them for weeks and putting them in a small bag when not being used in order to preserve them but they're already very durable and have a very nice sound."

Volume

Volume:
"Pros: Flat cord, decent fit in ear canal, ok sound quality, doesn't fall outCons: heavy in the ear (you can feel that you have them in), not that durable (after 2 months left earbud volume is slightly lower than the other), overall volume is somewhat lowIf you are looking for good headphones for this price, I'd pass on these."
_
"My fault for not taking the putty off before taking a picture (it actually improves the product) but they are not taking responsibility for a faulty product and saying that somehow silicon putty on the earbuds may have affected their volume control problem."
_
"Pros: Great sound, tangle-less cord, nice aesthetics, in-line siri ios comoatible mic, volume control play pauseCons: Dead left ear bud after 45 days, cord is noisy when bumped (i. e. while walking) , impersonal customer support, strange weight distribution but relatively snug nontheless."
_
"Lots of bass and great with 3 button mic and volume control."
_
"Having the controls for the volume is so wonderful."
_
"Great sound quality, comfort, and volume pause controls."
_
"I love the buttons on the cord to be able to increase or decrease volume without having to go into my pocket to turn it down from my iPod."
_
"I bought this headphones to use them with my Galaxy S4, and right after placing my order, I read a review from a guy that actually was warning everyone that wanted to use the remote control with any non-Apple-device, that the remote won't work and neither the mic (because on the package indeed there's a Made for iPod and iPad sticker)... Well he was kind of right 'cause the volume buttons don't work with my Galaxy, but the center button to answer end calls and the mic work fine..."
