Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Sure, the wire had problems when you bumped it, but the comfort and sound were great."
_
"I recently bought 2 pairs of Sony MDR-EX37B ear buds.. they have the same specs as far as driver size and material and frequency response - you wont be sorry to get a pair of these instead.. save more than half the cost and get full rich balanced far better quality sound and great comfort!"
_

_

_
"They fit well in the ear and are comfortable."
_

Noise

Noise:
"The headphones are poorly shielded and line noise is a problem."
_
"I use the product mainly for my morning 5 mile walk and I am very satisfied as other noises on the road are not interfering and I am able to enjoy the full quality of the sound."
_
"Also, they are not very good for running, because the wires do transfer the thumping noise."
_
"The fifth disappointment kind of shocked me: wind noise while walking inside the house!"
_
"This one is by far the loudest of them, the best noise isolator too."
_
"The term noise isolating is nothing if not misleading: If you hear almost as much noise wearing this piece as you do without wearing it, it has no noise canceling function, however creative AND misleading a way you put it!"
_
"The term noise isolating is simply a creative and misleading phrase for a non-existent function!"
_
"you dont have to worry about them not being loud enough becuase you can get the really loud, plus the noise isolation is wald good."
_
"I research products I'm looking to buy extensively and think these are good quality and great sound and noise cancelling quality."

Price

Price:
"The silver stripe on the top of the ear bud is gunmetal color now, not silver, and the quality is noticeably horrible, it sounds real cheap, it's unbalanced, and the cushions are hard rubber instead of flexible."
_
"If the price comes down 30-40% off of retail, these would be really hard to beat."
_
"Great fot this price"
_
"Don't waste your money on these Creative Buds the Sony MDR-EX37B will get you the quality that you would expect from these Creative Buds which have declined vastly from what they used to be in quality and audio balance and shielding."
_
"This one, while offering good sound quality for its price, performs absolutely NO noise canceling at all!"
_
"One agent commented that the price was too low even though the document with the price also contained the words Sold by: Creative Labs Inc. From this experience I entered 1-star, not about the product, but about the vendor."
_
"For the price you can't go wrong."

"one great quality, related to the problem i was having with the Phillips, is that the area where the main wire connects to the 3.5mm plug is very secure and reinforced."
_
"I use the product mainly for my morning 5 mile walk and I am very satisfied as other noises on the road are not interfering and I am able to enjoy the full quality of the sound."
_

"The highs and mids do not have a hi-fi quality sound.. only the bass sounds rich and good on these."
_
"I had an original pair of these EP-830s when I got my Xen-Fi player back in 2008, these ear buds were some of the best I've ever used, the bass was so clear and the sound quality was great."

Sound:

_
"Though the old one looks not good, it still plays fantastically (I'm talking about the sound quality only).It still has one deduct point that I think not an error but represents in both new and old earphones: when I hook it into some big machine like laptop or the running machines at the gym, it usually creates some kind of electrical beam inside my ears at time I put them on my ears just like small electrical shocks inside and that is the most annoying."
_
"Sound is decent, but the isolation isn't very good."
_
"I use the product mainly for my morning 5 mile walk and I am very satisfied as other noises on the road are not interfering and I am able to enjoy the full quality of the sound."
_
"These headphones offer great sound (amazing bass too) but the only problem is their wires."
_
"I've used different types of earphones that go in the ear & all of them have been a wrong fit, the sound is bad too."
_
"Great bass and sound....but one of the ear buds stopped working after 3 months' use"
_
"These are great little compact head phones with great sound - highly recommend them."
_
"I do enjoy the sound quality but am sick and tired of the wires that seem to stick to everything and they also make noise every time they bump into your shirt while running."
