"Keep in mind this is a temporary solution though, as these headphones are a bit prone to cord damage though."
_
"They're durable, despite the thin cord."

Fit:
"I usually hate how earbuds fit, these are actually comfortable."
_
"Comfort and fit (5 5): I have a problem in which one ear canal is larger than the other."
_
"It has a very weird fit...the sound was ok but then again can't say much as I failed to get a good seal."

Listening

Listening:
"I'm not an audiophile, and I don't listen to music that has many delicate nuances - so I can't say how well they will work for fine listening - but for everyday use, listening to podcasts and internet radio, it works great."
_
"They do block out sound great, but that also means I can hear my hair touching them, or my heart beating or myself breathing, which is annoying if I'm listening to something on low volume, like at work."
_
"I'd recommend these probably for the gym or casual listening."
_
"They don't sound nearly as good as the other Gummies I owned and these hurt my ears when listening for more than fifteen minutes."
_
"The highs and mids are so extremely unbalanced, and listening to anything with a respectable amount of treble is, well, trouble for your ears."
_
"So far, very comfortable when I use while exercising and listening to music."
_
"The sound is solid and not so much outside noise that your hearing is focus on your listening pleasure too."

Loud

Loud:
"The higher frequencies just aren't clear enough or loud enough for my tastes."
_
"The sound is clear, loud, and has nice bass; I have zero complaints."
_
"You also need to understand that I live in a house with people who are super loud and who have terrible taste in music, which, of course, gets blasted at full volume with no consideration for people with actual taste (she says while listening to fatboy slim).So my headphones need to be two things: Durable, Noise-cancelling."
_
"Very loud and clear!"
_
"I use these when I am mowing my lawn and my mower is very loud and they keep the sound out very well with the right size plugs selected"

_
"You also need to understand that I live in a house with people who are super loud and who have terrible taste in music, which, of course, gets blasted at full volume with no consideration for people with actual taste (she says while listening to fatboy slim).So my headphones need to be two things: Durable, Noise-cancelling."
_
"I don't enjoy a KW of extra bass in my music, but bass is part of what is produced by musicians, and these buds seem to lack almost all of it."
_
"but not so good for music."
_
"Rated only 3 stars out of 5 because if you really want to listen to music, there are better ways that will sound a lot more clear and show a lot more of the high low notes."

_
"For occasional music, they are more than adequate."
_
