Noise

Noise:
"These are very loud, I can use a significantly lower volume than other headsets, but their overall background noise isolation is not quite as good as some other headphones, but that is linked to the Jlabs double flange, my preferred Klipsch tips (which work perfectly on the steel series flux in ear) are too small to fit on the very large tips of these."
_
"They go a decent depth into your ear which means they don't fall out that easily and they also block outside noise for better sound."
_
"Noise cancellation is great."
_
"I haven't had anyone complain that they couldn't hear me, or that they picked up any background noise."
_
"There's too much cable noise from moving around to work out in these, but they're good for stationary listening like at work or at home."
_
"Fit was nice and snug allowing for a deadening of ambient noise."
_
"These headphones are good at blocking out noises on public transport as well as conversations while in the office."

Size

Size:
"There ok if you get them for around 7 bucks, take time to get used to, only reason I took a star out was the size of the tips, too big make my ear hurt after a while and the small ones make the buds terrible"
_
"The sound is clear and crisp and they're comfortable in my ears which I sometimes have a problem with because my ears are so small."
_
"If I had to change one thing, a clip would be nice so that you could anchor the headphones to your clothes to keep the microphone reasonably near your mouth, but that's a small complaint."
_
"They fit in my ear well with the different bud sizes, and the microphone quality is really nice."
_
"This earphones have a really basic quality, nothing special, and they easily fell out of my ears with the small and medium tips (large was too big for my ears) but could be a lot more better."
_
"But even the small earbuds were too large for my ears and they are SO slick they fall out if I back them out of my ear canal enough so they don't hurt."
_
"Great sound for a small price."
_
"It also has a comfortable fit and comes with other silicone sizes."

Volume

Volume:
"The only thing I could complain about is the fact that they dont have volume control only a pause play button."
_
"It's expensive compared to other earbud generics but is not comfortable as earbuds and do not have remote volume control."
_
"The lack of volume control seems a huge oversight here."

"I've been using the Panasonic RPHJE120K In-Ear Headphone which are only around $7 on Amazon, have volume control, and as far as I can tell just as good sound quality."
_
"That's a nice feature, but the sound is underwhelming and there's no volume control."
_
"I repeated the same test again with my Etymotic Research HF5 earphones (which are recognized as being very accurate) and they didn't reach peak bass volume until ~ 55-60Hz but when it comes to mids and highs and clarity, the HF5's completely outclass both the AmazonBasics and the Audio Technica CKS99i's."

iPhone

iPhone:
"I've been sticking with the Apple earbuds I received with a new iPhone, and I have to say: I missed these."
_
"These work fine, but I feel like I'm listening down a hallway (not very clear compared to the Apple earbuds that came with my IPhone 5."
_
"The mic works well with my iPhone and the cord does not tangle easily; they are great quality for the price."
_
"Worse, they essentially wouldn't work with my iPhone, I believe because of the inline switch that may have been faulty in mine but in any event would very frequently send a signal or some such thing while I'd be working out at the gym, so Siri would come up on my phone, or some other oddity would happen, meaning I couldn't just watch something on the phone without endless interruptions and the phone switching to other things."
_
"(I tried a Motorola G, iPhone 6, and Samsung Activ S)I compared these earphones to the Apple EarPods that came with my iPhone 6 and unfortunately, I can't say that the AmazonBasics were always better."

_
