Button

Button:
"The control unit (mic or mic & buttons) is fairly flimsy as well."
_
"Downside only have pause button on volume."

"One of my complaints about this product was that every time the button microphone hit anything, the sound would be amplified in my ears."

"My only complaint is that the microphone button is too low, making talking into it difficult and noisy, and the button gets pressed too easily if I zip the headphones in my jacket."
_
"My ONLY complaint is the track button does not skip backwards."
_
"I think that overall, it was a good product, but the one button was extremely confusing, because i did not know what it does."
_
"The control unit (mic or mic & buttons) is fairly flimsy as well."

Music

Music:
"This is EXTREMELY annoying listening to music."
_
"Sound from your music player or phone will mask the problem somewhat."
_
"The bass on this is good especially if you're listening to .flac music."
_
"They worked great for a while, but now something has happened so while I am listening to music or my audiobooks, my phone thinks that I am trying to talk to it so it goes to Siri or the Voice Memo."
_
"Sound quality is great across all types of music."
_
"The microphone works well so far and so do the controls for my android when listening to music."
_
"These buds look great-Good bass-Comes with 4 sizes of ear tips: extra small, small, medium (already installed on buds), large-Pretty much impossible to tangleCons:-Bass can be somewhat overwhelming in some songs-Microphone box thing feels very flimsy-LOTS of chord noise-Earwax will accumulate quite quickly on the inside of the budsOther notes: sound isolation: if you put the buds in and don't listen to anything, it will isolate some sound, but not a lot, once you start playing music, it should isolate a good amount of sound, but you can still kinda hear stuff that is going on outsideTo sum it up: If you want some really cool looking buds and really like bass, then i highly recommend these!
