Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"The 90 degree curve on the cord has advantages and disadvantages."
_
"Also I kind of prefer the asymmetrical cable that goes around the back of the head on the MM50ip, but it's really hard to find that these days, and also this Y cable is not too heavy in front like some that have big volume controls."
_
"I don't know why all brands make the cable so thin and weak, that's where all these fail."
_
"This is pretty impressive considering they went through everyday use & a washing machine and dryer at one point, and the only damage I noticed was that the Sennheiser sticker on the cable connector peeled off on one side."
_
"The sound is decent, but the real negative points of these headphones are that: 1) The cord is really cheap."
_
"The cord is not the best quality, and that is something that I really miss over my old ones."
_
"The 90 degree curve on the cord has advantages and disadvantages."
_
"Great sound quality, durable, and a nice long cord."
_
"The is durable and allows for easily wrapping the cable around your device without having to bend the cable."
_
"I've sent them through the washer and dryer on accident at least ten times, probably closer to twenty, and other than the cord tangling easier there was never any loss in sound quality."
_
"My cord has held up well on my older ones and with proper cord care this new pair should as well! "

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"These are a great cheap option in terms of sound quality and comfort, but unfortunately the cords develop faults very quickly."
_
"The sound isn't as good as others i have had, but they feel comfortable and have lasted twice as long as others I've had."
_
"The sound quality isn't great, they're not comfortable, and they're not durable."
_
"They are not perfect but have been the most comfortable earbuds to sleep with."
_
"I used to only buy the JVC Marshmallow buds but these are more comfortable, don't tangle as easily, and the sound is cleaner."
_
"Unfortunately the great sound and comfort comes at a price because they are too fragile to earn a full five stars."
_
"Good sound and comfort"
_
"I got these for my long bike rides and am very happy with them, the comfort level and performance far exceeds anything I've used before."
_
"I was also pleased with the way they fit, how comfortable they were (I could wear them comfortably for a full 8 hour+ flight), and the slim profile."
_
"Sounds quality is clear and the buds are comfortable."
_
"Comfortable and budget friendly."

Connector

Connector:
"I'm used to my MM50ip sennheiser iphone earbuds, and I've owned many pairs, but they break my heart every time because eventually the super flimsy jack gives out and an ear goes out."
_
"This is pretty impressive considering they went through everyday use & a washing machine and dryer at one point, and the only damage I noticed was that the Sennheiser sticker on the cable connector peeled off on one side."
_
"I also like that the headphone jack is at a right angle rather than a straight wire, as I feel straight wire jacks degrade faster from the bending."
_
"They only lasted me 14 months before the jack portion failed on me and could only hear from the left ear."
_
"I liked it so far but the jack is acting weird."
_
"I searched the problem on Google and it seems to be a connection problem of the jacks."
_
"I liked it so far but the jack is acting weird."
_
"Only reason I gave it four stars is because the audio jack is a little loose and can easily come out of the laptop sometimes."
_
"Not because it can be inconvenient, but because of the loose jack connection, it severely affects the audio quality."
_
"Not fun for me.... And the problem with the jack, beware of it before buying...."
_
"After almost 4 years of frequent use, it's starting to have the loose wire problem (only partial sound unless you twist the wire connector in a certain way)I suppose this is still pretty good in terms of durability, I bought them in 2010 and it's now 2014."

Design

Design:
"Design is also amazing because it has a low profile fit and nothing sticks out."
_
"The design is okay: thin and light, good cord length, comes with 3 ear piece sizes."
_
"Im no audiophile but Im big into good design and quality and these have always met my needs and wants! "
_
"They are the perfect size for my ears, and the twist-to-fit design helps them to fit snug in the ear and not fall out."
_
"I love its traditional style and design."

_
"They fit inside my (weirdly shaped) ears nicely, and the sound quality is great considering the price."
_

_
"These ear buds have replaceable rubber tips so I used the smallest ones and they fit my ears perfectly."
_
"They fit perfectly, with little poly-rubber caps that slide comfortably into your ear."

_
"I play mostly pop music and the bass and treble sounds are crisp and clear even with fairly loud volume."

Music:
"And before you bike purist start complaining about me riding and listening to music just know I don't care what you think! "
_
"I have had some good buds in the past but realized when listening to music I wasn't getting good bass."
_
"This is only noticeable during quiet parts of my music, but during these parts, it's a little irritating to hear the static noise."
_
"My Wife and Daughter both love music but always complain about the cheap earplugs that come with their MP3 players."
_
")The only problem with these earbuds is if you have any 128k bitrate, or not so clear mp3's, you will hear just how bad the quality of the music is with these(i have some older stuff at 128k."
_
"Very pleased with the sound quality across all types of music."
_
"My thing is classical music and I find the sound fidelity excellent, particularly when combined with the elimination of outside sound."
_
"The music sounds fantastic! "
_
"Really good, clear bass, comfortable midrange and treble that won't ruin the music but isn't anything to write home about."
_
"The sound quality's pretty decent for 20 bucks and does fine on non complex music."

Noise

Noise:
"Running was noisy in them and they broke within two weeks."
_
"To me, they are noise isolating, as it is pretty hard to hear anything outside of wearing the buds, even at low volumes on the phone."
_
"The cord makes a terrible noise as it bounces around while I am running and it also picks up wind noise when I run on windy days."
_
"Also, they have a consistant static popping noise when the plug isn't placed just perfectly into the receptor."
_
"The seal is OK, but not good if you are in a noisy area."
_
"I was a little worried about the comments on these making a noise when you move."
_
"On the bike these are great headphones because they cancel most of the traffic noise without blocking it 100% while putting my focus on the music."
_
"I originally started buying noise isolating headphones for studying and have tried out many pairs including Soniq USA SE500 Pulse Earbuds, MEE audio M6 PRO Universal-Fit Noise-Isolating Musician's In-Ear Monitors, and finally the Senheiser CX300's which unfortunately got stolen, but i can confidently say that Senheiser does noise isolation headphones the best."
_
"They totally block outside noise and have great fidelity."
_
"They totally block outside noise and have great fidelity."
_
"Love the headphones, Easy to block out all noise and to let me listen to my audiobooks nightly."

Performance

Performance:

_
"For the price I was happy with its performance and bass sound."
_
"I got these for my long bike rides and am very happy with them, the comfort level and performance far exceeds anything I've used before."
_
"Previously, I was using Yurbuds, which performed very well for working out but rather horribly for traveling as they allow quite a lot of sound to enter the ear."
_
"Very nice earbuds that perform nicely, are very durable, and don't break the bank at all."
_
"The noise cancelling function is not working particularly well, but wasn't really expecting that for plug-ins at this price so overall very happy with the performance."
_

Price

Price:
"The fit is exactly the same in the ear because they use the same rubber thingies as my iphone buds, and the sound is pretty close - I think they are a bit louder than MM50ip, also I think the bass on these is a tad thumpier and the high frequencies to my ear are not as clear, but that's ok because they're so cheap."
_
"The sound is decent, but the real negative points of these headphones are that: 1) The cord is really cheap."
_
"It's hard to beat these for the price."
_
"Given the price point, I'm not shocked - but that doesn't mean I'm happy about the money wasted."
_
"It's not so great that it will blow your mind, but for the price, it's excellent."
_

_
"It has good sound for the price."
_
"Pretty much worked as expected for cheap earbuds."
_
"Good for the price"

"Buying another pair, since they're still a good price, and I don't know I'd find something much better without a good bit of research."

Quality

Quality:

_
"These are a great cheap option in terms of sound quality and comfort, but unfortunately the cords develop faults very quickly."
_

_
"Tone range is not so great."
_
"That's often the weakness in earbuds at this price range."
_
"Sound quality is good, not great, probably as good as could be expected for the $20 range."

_

Rubber

Rubber:
"The only weird thing is that the little rubber piece thingamajig that keeps the wires tangle free seems to be attached on the wrong end."
_
"The only negative I have is that rubber cables are tacky and get tangled up too easily - Skullcandy earphones I purchased a year ago use a much better material that seems less tangly."
_
"Moreover, the rubber earpieces fill your whole ear and are great at blocking out external sound."
_
"Only problem I had was I lost the rubber pieces, but that isn't the products fault."
_
"The rubber buds fall off very easier."
_
"I tried all the different sizes of rubber tips, and they seal pretty well, but they just don't provide the isolation I want."
_
"The earbud material feels like soft rubber or silicone which is a lot more comfortable than the traditional felt that's used."

Size

Size:
"very comfortableI have small ear and is hard to find a headset that it is goodthis was perfect! "
_
"They keep falling, too small, and too flimsy to take anywhere not worth it if your going to use them outside your bedroom."
_
"The problem is the thickness size of the wire."
_
"My only gripe -- the L and R markings on the buds are small & hard to see."
_
"I think the small size is a little too small for my ear, but the medium size is a little too big and causes discomfort."
_
"I hear sounds in songs that I didn't know was there and good base for being so small."
_
"Ergonomics: The shape of the earphone allows it to be pinched easily and with the correct earbud size (Of which there are plenty) it slots perfectly in your ear."
_
"Bass is perfectly adequate, if you choose the right size tips from the included selection and make sure you get a good seal in your ear canal; this is true with any earbud of this design."
_
"I tried all the different sizes of rubber tips, and they seal pretty well, but they just don't provide the isolation I want."
_
"Really great sound from such a small driver."
_
"Great for small ears."

Treble

Treble:
"The treble boost is irritating, though."
_
"I want describe about this Jlab, bass is fantastic, quality and construction is very good but little bit I disappointed in over treble and it is very high and it is dominating other instruments, manufacturer should note the point."
_
"In a nutshell: accurate but piercing in the mid- and upper treble."
_
"Nice bass treble balance and they fit really well."
_
"The treble has good extension, the bass is a little too emphasized but doesn't ruin the over all sound quality, although there is a slight mid bass hump."

Volume

Volume:
"High quality and absolutely durableI did not like volume button, as it got broken after a year and was going down constantly, thus lowering sound."
_
"Also, when you turn up the volume a little, you can effectively block out annoying things (like if you are stuck in a vehicle with people blaring music you can't stand, lol), but when your own music is not playing, the earbuds themselves do not interfere with your hearing (so you can hear just fine with them in when your sound's off)."
_
"It sometimes drops the volume a lot and it is really annoying then."
_
"There's surprisingly deep bass and the volume can be turned up to painful levels (don't do this!"
_
"No static, great volume, good bass (unless you're the type that likes to feel the pick-up vibrate! )"
_
"However, I was really disappointed once I cranked up the volume."
_
"I was also looking for very efficient earbuds that could produce enough volume and sound dampening to overcome the sound of treadmills and various other noises common in gyms."
_
"I play mostly pop music and the bass and treble sounds are crisp and clear even with fairly loud volume."
_
"Also, when you turn up the volume a little, you can effectively block out annoying things (like if you are stuck in a vehicle with people blaring music you can't stand, lol), but when your own music is not playing, the earbuds themselves do not interfere with your hearing (so you can hear just fine with them in when your sound's off)."
_
"The only thing that i miss with these earbuds, is being able to control the volume and stop start music while using certain media apps on my phone."
_
"The reason why I gave this earphones 3 stars is because when I put the volume high there's a static noise and I love listenIng to my music in high volume."

Weight

Weight:
"Very good headphones, lightweight, and durable."
_
"The Monoprice earbuds have stronger bass and a warmer tone, but only when inserted properly in the ear canal, and that doesn't last long as their greater size and weight pulls them partially out after a few minutes and diminishes the sound quality."
_
"I will use them for running primarily, so fit and light weight are primary concerns, and these fit well and stay put in my ears."
_
"They are fairly lightweight which is nice for jogging."
_
"Light weight, never falls out of my ear and fits perfectly."

iPod

iPod:
"I tested them in an ipod and sound is nice, not grate, just nice."
_
"And for me they have an annoying tendency to get yanked on and pull on my iPod or pull out of one of my ears."
_
"Pro:*Cheap (~$20)*Durable (These have accidentally gone in the washer with my running pants at least 6-7 times, with no damage whatsoever)*Stay in my ear while running (which isn't the case with other buds, even some running earphones)*Good quality sound (better than the buds that come with an iPod)*Noise cancelling (simply because they mold into your ear - this would be the case with any buds of similar construction)Cons:*Not great quality sound^ This is a stretch of a con for my use - the bass could be better, but for what I need it for, and for only $20 - it works perfectI would buy these again at regular price... and that is why I am here, to buy my wife a pair after her iPod buds broke"
_
"Together with my iPod Shuffle it works great, even all coiled up."
_
"If you want to get great sound out of your iPod, then these are the way to go."
_
"The quality of the sound received using these headphones is superior to those that come with phones, mp3 player, even...the ipod."
_
"I was pleasantly surprised when I got these and listened to my iPod."
_
"I recommend you not purchase the CX200 for the iPod, iPad or the mini."
