Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Amazon

Amazon:

"I wasn't sure if I liked that since I had bought something from amazon previously and it had arrived practically the next day, but I let it go."
_
"I made that mistake once, and I'll only buy these from Amazon from now on."
_
"Ordering from Amazon was great."

Audio

Audio:
"Good audio quality (although I'm not an audiophile) and very nice construction."
_
"The problem with this is that when you're broadcasting audio in a chatroom through stereo mix, the sound you hear becomes louder than the sound the audience hears."
_
"It's hard to believe you can get such a high-quality audio product for under $20."
_
"The joint between the audio jack and the cable itself is very weak and the copper wire inside will fray on you between 6 months and 1 year."
_
"Perfect for listening to audio books."
_
"By the way, the MA-330's do have a microphone, and the four conductor plug, so while they are meant for use with the phone, they deliver outstanding audio quality for MP3 listening."
_
"More comfortable, and audio sounds more natural."
_
"Good response across the audio spectrum."
_
"The JBuds did not have this problem when tested with the exact same audio source."
_

Base

Base:
"The only problem I have with them is at low volume the base (albeit very clean) muffles higher frequency sounds."
_
"Deep base and crisp clear highs."
_
"Lacks base and doesn't stay in ear as good as the JM ones."
_
"These EP-630's not only reproduce sound well, with plenty (but no too much) base, but they are also very rugged."
_
"These headphones have a really good base for something their size plus the noise-isolating feature isalso better than I would have expected."
_
"love my earphones..good sound and grt base..durable..thanks Creative, iGet it FAST electronics and Amazon."

Cable

Cable:
"Cable broke near the cable connector."
_
"Only complaints are that the cable going into the jack isn't very stress-relieved so it seems like it would be prone to damage from jerking on the cable, and that the L and R markings on the earbuds wear off over time, making it difficult to know which one to put in which ear after it has work off."
_
"I had an older version but the cable broke after 2 years of heavy use (biking in all kinds of weather)."
_
"Cord doesn't tangle easily, either."
_
"Cable: harder to tangle which is very efficient."
_
"Good length cord, I have my fone in my pocket when it's plugged in."
_
"I love the long cord and its in-ear feature, goes very well with my ipod shuffle."
_
"While the sound quality was good (while they lasted), the cord itself was a very clingy rubber which had a tendency to catch on itself and other objects."
_
"I'm not a high end audiophile and would have given the earphones 5 stars but the cord is 3-4 inches shorter than the S3's and the S3's came with a nice little carrying case."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"-The Bass Freqs are not as comfortable as the Creatives for extended wear."
_
"In any event, these are not only very good performers, they're comfortable (and, happily, STAY nicely fitted in your ears), they are genuinely sound-isolating (note that this is not the same as noise-cancelling), and the rubber-coated cord stays loose and tangle-free."
_
"Here of some of my observations: the sound is great, small size so fits relatively easy in pockets, the earbuds themselves are small (very comfortable."
_
"The stereo has terrific clarity, and the earbuds are actually comfortable in your ear."
_
"The earphones feel durable and comfortable."
_
"They are super comfortable and good sound for the price."
_
"They also sit well in your ear and feel comfortable."

Connector

Connector:
"Cable broke near the cable connector."
_
"The problem is the connection to the jack breaks after a 1-2 years."
_
"As time passed, the cord had to be kept at a certain angle to get sound out of both earpieces because its connection to the jack was weak."
_
"Ultimately, the service life was shortlived, lasting five months before the jack began to show faults of its own."
_
"The only problem is that the first pair, now several years old, have not worn out or suffered a broken connector."
_
"Only complaints are that the cable going into the jack isn't very stress-relieved so it seems like it would be prone to damage from jerking on the cable, and that the L and R markings on the earbuds wear off over time, making it difficult to know which one to put in which ear after it has work off."
_
"In all, excellent headphones, although I would recommend buying a good right angle 3.5 mm jack and soldering the wires."
_
"The jacket ung has never given me any problems, and have proven to be rather wear proof."
_
"One thing that really annoys me about earphones is when the cord separates from the connector after a while but this one is still in perfect condition!"
_
"There will be another black layer below to protect the copper jack underneath, and the jack will now fit perfectly into the iphone."

Durability

Durability:
"Despite a comfortable fit and decent sound quality, I cannot recommend this item due to the extremely limited durability."

"The one major drawback on these is durability."

"Highly recommended by me for: sound, durability, and price, in that order."
_
"Sound is great, and durability is great too."

Fit

Fit:
"They couldn't fit into my ear well (although it's a personal problem), and I couldn't get a very good seal."
_
"The sound is clear and the fit is perfect, I have small ears so the buds that fit without hurting and slipping are hard to come by."

_
"Somehow I feel the fit isn't quite easy into my ears."
_

_
"They fit comfortably, stay in place, and the sound quality is good for the price."
_
"Good sound, good fit (3 different size sets of ear cushions are included) and they seem just as well built as my old ones - - and that's really saying something."
_
"Fit perfectly in ear."

Listening

Listening:
"At best, the sony headphones are comparable to the CL headphones under quiet listening conditions, and at worst, are just plain terrible."
_
"Perfect for listening to audio books."
_
"By the way, the MA-330's do have a microphone, and the four conductor plug, so while they are meant for use with the phone, they deliver outstanding audio quality for MP3 listening."
_
"These work great as an all around listening piece."
_
"Very good for listening to music."
_
")PROS:- High detailed, comfortable audio listening (even for long listening sessions)- Cord length is just right- Durable for the lengthy time I've owned them- Good background noise cancellation- Cheap!"

Music

Music:
"I have had my ipod on at less than half of its volume potential, and my sisters sitting next to me have complained they could clearly hear my music."
_
"If you play your music through them without them in your ears, you will be able to hear your music clearly."
_
"I cannot listen to music in headphones unless they don't have the best sound quality possible (that I can afford)."
_
"To top it all off NONE of the headphones lasted longer than like 3 or 4 months before one of the ear buds would fail to play music."
_
"Personally I don't enjoy overpowering bass in any music so for me they are a perfect level for it."
_
"I still have my old ones that I use every now and then to fall asleep to music in bed, when the both work that is, but I am very happy that I was able to purchase the replacement for so low a cost."
_
"These headphones are perfect for travelling (can't hear the screaming babies on the airplane at all) or commuting (seat-mates on the subway can't hear your music at all) as well as for general use."
_
"I enjoy many types of music from classical to hip-hop."
_
"Music sounds great but you can hear every time it brushes against your clothing."
_
"I don't have anything bad to say other than I would have liked a deeper, richer sound for music."

Noise

Noise:
"After reading these reviews I thought Creative's EP-630 In Ear Noise Isolating Headphones would be a good replacement - how wrong I was."
_
"The biggest problem with the EP-630 is that its drivers produce a noticeable noise floor when the audio is quiet."
_
"Not so great at noise isolating, but they look good and the sound is nice."
_
"With music running you won't hear background noise unless abnormally loud (on a plane, bus etc)."
_
"The audio quality is OK, but boy of boy - each time the wire touches anything - it makes a weird noise (it almost seems that the whole wiring on these earphones is made like a microphone and picks up all the noise - even though there is no microphone built in - on these earphones)."
_
"The sound quality also obviously points out a fake, with a ton more white noise, and very weak bass compared to the originals."
_
"Noise cancelling is impressive but wouldn't take away louder sounds noise obviously."
_
"Good sound and blocks ambient noise."
_
"they sound real nice lots of bass...little noise in wire though when moving wire I hear between songs..."
_
"Ear buds work great, deep bass and no unwanted noise! "
_
"They are great because they also seal out noise (road noise and airplane noise) ."

Noise-cancellation

Noise-cancellation:

Price

Price:
"Not great headphones, but good headphones for the price."
_
"they arrived on july 15th today is july 31th and the right earphone blew out now only the left side works and also out the package they dont feel sturdy at all feels like its made cheap thats probably why they broke so fast i cant tell you what to do but i would find different earphones than wasting money on these"
_
"They sounded good for the price I think they would be hard to beat but they started cutting out last week and that was all she wrote by a couple days later."
_
"Yea, there are probably better sounding buds out there, but at this price, I can't believe how durable these have been for me during my work-outs."
_
"I probably will lose these before I encounter problems but spares are affordable and packed in my go bag."
_
"These headphones are great for the price, but I'm still disappointed."
_
"I've tried dozens of headphones over the years, these are hands down the best ones for the money."
_
"I've purchased ten or so different pairs of headphones in this price range, and these are the best bang for the buck."

Quality

Quality:
"These guys are low profile, deliver good bass on 9 mm drivers and sound quality has been hard to beat."
_
"Good audio quality (although I'm not an audiophile) and very nice construction."
_
"It was excellent in sound quality and I had them for over a year, but I accidentally broke the end of the earphones where you plug them in so I had to buy a new one."
_
"I cannot listen to music in headphones unless they don't have the best sound quality possible (that I can afford)."
_
"These do not fit well in ears and have the worst sound quality of any earbuds i have ever owned."
_
"I think the sound quality is about the same (i'm not audiofile) as well."
_
"Quality is good but don't expect these to last forever."

Range

Range:
"Secondly, the EP-630s have a very weak middle range, sure they have bass and treble, but without the mid-range your music will sound hollow or thin."
_
"I've purchased ten or so different pairs of headphones in this price range, and these are the best bang for the buck."
_
"I've tried several similar sets in this price range and slightly higher and these are just the hands down best overall."
_
"I was looking for something that would have great range of sound (I listen to techno, heavy metal, alternative) and have good quality of sound too."
_
"If you want to stay in the same price range, I would recommend these:http: www."
_
"I especially enjoy the bass range and rich sound from the noise isolation."

Rubber

Rubber:
"The best part is the zero-memory rubber wire that is just hard to get entangled."
_
"These head phones had one problem and one problem only, and that's the problem they have keeping those little rubber pieces beneath the buds from coming off."
_
"(FYI, I was typically buying Coby CVE92's or something similar, which I think for the price are great but after a month one or both of the ear bud wires would go bad and sound would either die out completely or only play through if the cable was set just right)These are admittedly my second pair but the first broke in a pretty freak accident, and while the rubber over the cable was melted and the metal wiring was exposed they still actually worked normally."
_
"The best part is the zero-memory rubber wire that is just hard to get entangled."
_
"While the sound quality was good (while they lasted), the cord itself was a very clingy rubber which had a tendency to catch on itself and other objects."
_
"Rubber wires are great quality."
_
"I removed them from the box and found the largest rubbers were the best fit for my ear."
_
"It does wonders on noise-cancellation, not being true cancellation tech but the rubber comfortable buds block out a huge amount of noise with no music even playing."
_

Size

Size:
"Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the size options are not great."
_
"They aren't very durable, so don't take them snowboarding or to the gym (the small amount of sweat that came into contact with them while I was lifting caused one of the buds to shock me."
_
"Here of some of my observations: the sound is great, small size so fits relatively easy in pockets, the earbuds themselves are small (very comfortable."
_
"They're small and sound great."
_
"Good sound, good fit (3 different size sets of ear cushions are included) and they seem just as well built as my old ones - - and that's really saying something."

Sound

Sound:
"These are decent sounding headphones, my problem with them is that the L and R is very dark and makes it impossible to tell which is which in a darker environment."
_
"As time passed, the cord had to be kept at a certain angle to get sound out of both earpieces because its connection to the jack was weak."
_
"These guys are low profile, deliver good bass on 9 mm drivers and sound quality has been hard to beat."
_
"Yea, there are probably better sounding buds out there, but at this price, I can't believe how durable these have been for me during my work-outs."
_
"Tried ear plugs several times and had a huge improvement, but they blocked too much sound and were uncomfortable."
_
"Disadvantages involve the wires which transmit sound easily (bumping when walking or exercising, so I place inside my shirt)."
_
"The sound is amazing and the feel and build is really great."
_
"Here of some of my observations: the sound is great, small size so fits relatively easy in pockets, the earbuds themselves are small (very comfortable."
_
"You can not find better earphones for that price, fantastic sound for a bargain."
_
"Noise cancelling is impressive but wouldn't take away louder sounds noise obviously."
_
"Above average sound and these last a good amount of time, I use mine everyday at work so I use them to their fullest extent."

Treble

Treble:
"Secondly, the EP-630s have a very weak middle range, sure they have bass and treble, but without the mid-range your music will sound hollow or thin."
_
"They have a balanced sound, they're not great at playing either bass or treble but they're good at playing both."
_
"Clear sound, bass and treble are balanced, Viper4Android ( a very good DSP App for rooted android devices ) makes it sound like a pair of 80-100 dollar headphones, luckily this is 20$.Bought this a while back and 1 side borked."
_
"Clear bass and treble, was good to distinguish every instrument in the track."
_
"The Bass is amazingly crisp,the Mids are clear, and the treble just right."
_
"The bass is great in the sense it's not overbearing and the treble levels are near perfect."
_
"However, having experienced headphones that play great treble OR great bass."

Value

Value:
"These headphones are great value for money."
_
"Great sound and build quality for the value."
_
"These are a good value for low cost wearable earbuds."
_
"Overall, excellent value."
_
"My final judgement...the Creative is a waaay better value than Beats by Dre ear buds."

Volume

Volume:
"The missing star is cause they dont include a volume control"
_
"I have had my ipod on at less than half of its volume potential, and my sisters sitting next to me have complained they could clearly hear my music."
_
"The sensitivity is not as good as Apple's ear piece so the volume is not as loud."
_
"My wife and I say no contest - the Creative EP-630 is much better in sound volume and fullness."
_
"The only problem I have with them is at low volume the base (albeit very clean) muffles higher frequency sounds."
_
"They play a good volume and fit my ears great with the small silicone ear piece."
_
"They are pretty powerful to match, I almost never put music over 12 volume out of 25 (on my mp3) and it still cranks out amazing sound."
_
"When music is played at decent volume, you cannot hear a thing."
_
"I think normal(loud but not ridiculous) listening volume cancels that out or they've corrected the problem."
_
"* Noise cancellation is good enough that you shouldn't need to crank the volume all the way up on your music player smart phone, although when you do, you're in a world of your own."

iPod

iPod:
"I decided to browse the equalizer settings on my ipod before I went through the hassle of returning them."
_
"My original pair lasted about 2 years and only broke because I dropped my iPod and the jack broke off when it hit the ground at an angle."
_
"I,ve listened to Skull candy, beats, Bose and Grado buds along with the crappy ipod, Zune etc."
_
"I bought several sets of ear phones and ear buds for my wife after she got a new iPod and complained that the ear buds were uncomfortable."
_
"I love the long cord and its in-ear feature, goes very well with my ipod shuffle."
_
"I used to buy the Sennheiser CX300s,an excellent set of sub-$100 headphones for my Ipod Classic."
_
"Plus, it's important to keep in mind that you're likely listening to these on a simple iPod with a 256 bitrate (at best)."
_
"Now, I do not need to use the Equalizer options in iPOD and distort the music as the earphones respond very well to a full audible range of sound!"
_
"The performance of these earphones has been outstanding and with iPOD as well."
