Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"They fit in my ears well and don't fall out on runs, but the fact I can't get good audio through the contact makes them completely useless."
_
"This results in terrible audio quality."
_
"Every earbud set I've tried have been a terrible experience despite finding some with excellent audio quality."
_
"I am pretty disappointed considering Audio Technica usually makes decent quality products (their CKS55i's have been serving me well for a year so far).I have tried cleaning the plug and the jack to no avail."
_
"To give you an idea of my audio profile -- I love music and typically listen with Shure in-ears (215)."
_
"I love Audio Technica but not to much with this set."
_
"These Audio Technicas gave me a good level of bass which seemed to be a concern on others."
_
"Every earbud set I've tried have been a terrible experience despite finding some with excellent audio quality."

Cable

Cable:
"I was worried after first trying these because of the microphonics caused by the cord hitting my body."
_
"Great sound, great fit, though a little concerned about the apparent flimsiness of the cord, as from experience that's what usually ends up giving out on these things."
_
"The cables are a tad on the flimsy side but the comfort is good, they stay exactly when they should even under extreme activity, and the sound quality is eerily excellent for the price."
_
"I purchased two sets because the cable broke on the first one."
_
"It's an uneven length thing intended to bring the joining cables together on one side in an effort to make cable management easier, but there's a weird weight issue that causes some less comfortable pulling on the cable if you are active while wearing them (walking, running, jogging, biking, etc)."
_
"The only real complaint I have is the cable management to the individual earbuds is a little awkward."
_
"While the cord extender is great, so I can run outside with it short and use gym equipment with it longer, the connector is heavy and makes it swing about if I'm on the elliptical or treadmill, which is noisy."
_
"The cord length is perfect, and the clothing clip is an added bonus."
_
"The cord is kind of a funny length, good for clipping an iPod shuffle to my shirt, but too short for anything else."
_
"The cables are a tad on the flimsy side but the comfort is good, they stay exactly when they should even under extreme activity, and the sound quality is eerily excellent for the price."
_
"The sound quality is very good and the extra cable extender is nice."

_
"Overall: With some extra attachments, like a magnetic shirt clip such as Bud Buttons or Klingg and foam eartips, homemade via earplugs, the cheap ones via amazon ebay, or Comply, these things offer good sound, sweat resistance, and great comfort for exercise headphones with some caveats that you can live with."
_
"These are not the most comfortable to wear, but they stay in really well and are great for running."
_
"Great sound, don't fall out while running, comfortable fit."
_
