Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"much better then the headphones you get with other products b c they sit nicely in your ears... they don't fall out when your exercising or when sweating... the only drawback is there is no sound minimizer on the cord itself... which comes in handy at times."
_
"The cable seems to have failed near the jack, and now I can hear only one channel."
_
"This earbuds DO are water resistant but the black plastic that protects the cable in the earbud broke on both ends, and the other flaw is that the caps are easy to lose and WILL come off very easily."
_
"Nice Fit, decent quality.. the cord is a little hard to get straight.. (keeps tangling up) but great fit and sound for the cost"
_
"My only complaint is the length of the cord."
_
"It's advisable to open this package carefully, as it might be easy to damage the headphone cable."
_
"The right headphone quit on me after about a year, partly because the RCA plug isn't mated to the cord very well (for a while I could get the sound to come back by pushing the cord further into the jack)."
_
"You'd have to give the cable a good strong tug to pull them out, but doing your regular stuff causes no slippage of any kind."
_
"also they have a clip on the cord to attach to your shirt, which is great, another good point is the cord is also pretty long, I am 6ft 3' and run the cord under my shirt and to my player inside my pocket with no trouble."

Clip

Clip:
"Normal ear buds fall out too easily and sometimes have that stethoscope effect and the earphones that clip to your ear can be uncomfortable and awkward feeling."
_
"I like the concept of Kevlar enforced cable (hopefully that'll extend the lift of the channels), and it has a clip that keeps it on your shirt while you're running which is good."
_
"I use these with my SanDisk Sansa Clip Zip (for 7 months now) and have never had a problem with them, once I realized I wasn't pushing the plug in all the way... it was kind of a tight fit at first."
_
"also they have a clip on the cord to attach to your shirt, which is great, another good point is the cord is also pretty long, I am 6ft 3' and run the cord under my shirt and to my player inside my pocket with no trouble."
_
"The rubber guards do come off easily, and the sound is fine to me, not sure what people expect for the price, also has nice clip that helps keep the cords from swinging to much while running."
_
"I wore them most of the week days while walking to work (~20 min each way) and they sounded fine and I liked the clip to attach them to a strap or jacket."

_
"They're comfortable, and the sound quality is great."

Cover

Cover:
"Right now, the ear buds themselves still work but without the covers they are rough uncomfortable in my ear and useless at the gym as they constantly fall out of my ear."
_
"The only problem for me is that the rubber covers fall off and always end up getting lost."
_
"The rubber covers are hard to switch out, I irreparably stretched one out trying to get it on."
_
"Put the orange rubber covers back on and the sound is even worse - weak & tinny sound muffeled by a funnel."
_
"Even if they came with these weird looking orange rubber covers on them."
_
"Researched various earbuds before deciding on these- I recommend trying on the various covers that come w it- for instance my headphones only stayed securely in when I snapped on the smallest size covers."
_
"The smallest covers fit the best and are washable."
_
"The three sizes for the earpiece covers are great."
_
"They come with several sizes of bud covers, and fit perfectly into my ear."
_
"However, the package comes with extra covers -- and the earphones were still in perfect operating condition."

Design

Design:
"Conclusion: These are designed for a specific purpose, and they fail to achieve it."
_
"I've never had this problem before, and i've tried all three of the little adaptors, not a good design."
_
", it is easy to see through their design how they get that to work, the buds themselves seat deep in the ear and the sound comes out the nipples so its pretty tough for sweat to get inside them."
_
"My real issue with these headphones is they break way too easily for headphones which are designed to be used while working out."
_
"Pros:Color (looks cool), clip and pouch, decent enough sound qualityCons:Poor Design, fitting not suited for action"
_
"For what they are, designed specifically for activity, i give it a perfect score."
_
"These earphones are designed and built well."

_
"These headphones have an interesting fit that other reviewers here have complained about but I find them comfortable personally."

_

_

Music

Music:
"The deliver more bass than I was expecting they stay in my ears comfortably while I run and sweat, best of all I can't hear a noise other than my music while I run :)"
_
"As someone who listens to pretty much all kinds of music I have to say that these stink across the board in all areas."

"They're great for exercise or just listening to music watching a movie on your computer."

_
"I tell you now: there is no bass and noise isolation is mediocre at best."
_
"The deliver more bass than I was expecting they stay in my ears comfortably while I run and sweat, best of all I can't hear a noise other than my music while I run :)"
_
"The wind noise is unbelievable."
_
"I dance a lot, and they do not fall out, and they cancel out other noises very well."
_
"Because of the funneled shape, when you get them in right you hear good bass and exterior noise reduction."
_

Price

Price:
"Sure, the base isn't the best, but overall the sound is better than it should be for the price range."
_
"I thought, for the price, they would be good but not great."
_
"Sound isn't great - but better than most other affordable sports-branded earbuds - and they stay in my ears and provide decent sound and volume levels."
_
"Had owned Bose sennheiser earphones all broken within a year, which couldn't justify the price."
_
"Trust me, I wish I agreed with all the positive reviews since I spent money on these headphones, but I have been extremely disappointed in the product."

"Good product for the price."
_
"These fit me well, sound good enough for the price and rarely fall out."
_
"For this price, these headphones are well worth it."
_

_
"So I have been working out (Gym) for close to 4 years and I can say that these headphones are very good for the price and they do the job of staying put while running or doing other exercises."

_
"Sound quality is as good as any in ear headphone of this price point."
