Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"The only annoying feature is that if I had the audio playing and then inserted the Moonrocks into the headphone jack (or vice versa, and removed them from the headphone jack), then whatever audio I was listening to would stop and I'd have to touch play again."
_
"While taking a page from the Apple packaging and product design, the Moshi Moonrock earphones do the work and provide good audio for the price."
_
"These are good for music, movies, or audio books."
_
"The sound quality of these earphones is very good, with a good depth of sound, which I find important in audio books."
_
"Good quality sound with the kindle fire audio books and music and blocks out pretty much all outside noise."
_
"This makes it perfect to immerse yourself in an audio book."

Button

Button:
"I did discover some slight drawbacks, but they are by no means deal breakers:* CORD BUTTON REMOTE *The button control works on the iPhone, but not very good on the Kindle."
_
"It's a little tinnier but that wasn't unexpected by me due to the price differential.2) The Y-split is non-adjustable so you can't tighten up the slack if needed.3) The button function is not compatible with my Droid phone or (surprisingly) with my Nano."
_
"The only problem I had was that the instructions indicate that the little button on the cable can be used to pause music and to go forward or backward in a playlist."
_
"On my Blackberry Curve 9360, the headphones sound great, the microphone works, and the control button works for start and pause but nothing else."
_
"While the Kindle apparently supports forward and backward functions, on the Galaxy's music player one click on the button was good for starting and pausing playback, but two or more clicks just put it into shuffle mode."
_
"Good sound with some tinkering, convenient control buttons, sound-isolating capability, and a nice compact carrying case make these headphones a good buy...if they were under $30."
_
")They sound nice, they're comfortable, the case is cute, the microphone and control button are very handy."
_
"Includes an in-line mic with click button control which is a nice added plus."

Cable

Cable:
"I see a number of folks complaining of the difficulty of wrapping the cord back into the case."
_
"Putting the cable all the way in, does not produce good sound."
_
"I like the fact that the cord can be wrapped up out of the way, but it's not user friendly when you just want to get it out quick."
_
"I did discover some slight drawbacks, but they are by no means deal breakers:* CORD BUTTON REMOTE *The button control works on the iPhone, but not very good on the Kindle."
_
"I'm not a great fan of the red cord as I prefer black or white."
_
"Also like that the ear buds are different colors -- making it much easier to differentiate L and RThe case is nice neatly holds the earbudsmy one complaint is that the cord conducts a lot of noise to the ear buds as it moves (walking, turning head and other activities."
_
"The cord is a good length and I love being able to store them in their 'rock'."
_
"My 13 year old is generally rather hard on her stuff, but when I gave her this set to try, she found it fun to store the cord on the cute little moonrock."
_
"In addition to crisp, clear, quality music, I also like the way the tiny cables wrap into the large yellow cap for easy storage."
_
"-The rubbery cord doesn't get tangled as easily as the plastic kind."
_
"This item has a nice radius for winding the cord and overhanging protectors that keep the cord from being pulled out by other items you might be carrying."

Color

Color:
"Received the wrong color but love them anyway! "
_
"You could use the same color for both ears if you want, but if you don't, you can color-code it so that you can easily tell which is for which ear: red for right, for example."
_
"Received the wrong color but love them anyway! "
_
"The sound quality was great and the color was so unique."
_
"Of course, they can be used for more than just the Kindle Fire, but the color matches the Amazon logo nicely if you're in to that."
_
"The Moshi Moonrock lime color looks very adorable."
_
"I must admit I got these headphones because they came in pretty colors."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"This set is great because not only do they sound good, but they are comfortable and have this wonderful little spooly bit to wind the loose wires around."
_
"Okay, I'll admit, the little carrying case is really neatly designed, but I didn't get these because they have a cute case, I got them to be comfortable and sound good."
_
"The headphones come with three earpiece sizes, but the medium size fit snugly, do not easily slip out, and are very comfortable."
_
"SOUND: Really, no matter how clever or comfortable, what you want in earbuds is good sound."
_
"These won't replace my iphone5 earbuds and unfortunately will end up in my electronic junk drawer because they are not comfortable to me."
_
"While these are not perfectly comfortable, the flat top of them is a big improvement over standard-shaped earbuds."
_
"We get great sound with comfort and convenience."
_
"I really loved these earbuds they were very comfortable and the sound was excellent!"
_
"Very clear sound and very comfortable!"
_
"Comfortable, good sound, easy to use with an abundance of fitted ear inserts."

Control

Control:
"I did discover some slight drawbacks, but they are by no means deal breakers:* CORD BUTTON REMOTE *The button control works on the iPhone, but not very good on the Kindle."
_
"The only thing missing is a volume control, like the earbuds Apple includes with their phone."
_
"The double-click next-song and triple-click previous-song single-button control can be hit-or-miss and is REALLY annoying to use."
_
"It is worse in that there is no easy way to control the volume without accessing the actual device."
_
"If you do not care about volume control, this is a well engineered headphone, my guess is, will last many years."
_
"It does have a stop start control which works well, I use it when I need to change the volume."
_
"On my Blackberry Curve 9360, the headphones sound great, the microphone works, and the control button works for start and pause but nothing else."
_
"There's a nice little volume control on the wire."
_
"Good sound with some tinkering, convenient control buttons, sound-isolating capability, and a nice compact carrying case make these headphones a good buy...if they were under $30."

Design

Design:
"Okay, I'll admit, the little carrying case is really neatly designed, but I didn't get these because they have a cute case, I got them to be comfortable and sound good."
_
"For me, the buds don't fit too well in one ear and keep falling out no matter what size I use, and the way the earphone is designed is not really comfortable."
_
"So while this carrying case is a very unique and cool-looking design, it is far too fussy than it needs to be because: (1) it takes too long to store these earbuds into their carrying case; (2) unwinding the cable to remove the earbuds from the carrying case is tedious; and (3) repeatedly pulling the earbuds out of the carrying case by pulling on the cord can progressively weaken the cable's connection to the earbuds."
_
"The perfect circle design isn't comfortable & physics make it want to pop out although I have the smallest size chosen as the medium are way too big."
_
"I have small ears, and even Apple's newly designed ear pods DO NOT fit comfortably in my ears."
_
"Nice design and look with good sound."
_
"I call that a good design! "
_
"The design is really great and protect the product, but the sound quality for a small entry level Headphone is clearly remarkable."
_
"The oval rubber space station design of the case holder is cool, but less than perfect."
_
":)The design is amazing, and you get three sizes of earbuds(small,medium,and large)so you get options if one doesn't fit your ears."

Fit

Fit:
"However, winding the buds up and making the wire and buds fit as they are supposed to fit is a bit of a hassle."
_
"The sound, fantastic, the ear fit, superb, the connector wiring....not so good."
_
"I bought a pair of these headphones for a friend and she was unfortunately unable to use them because they did not fit in her ear."
_
"Like other in-ear headphones though, if your ear canals aren't wide enough to fit other in-ear headphones, you will most likely have the same problem with these."
_
"The headphones come with three earpiece sizes, but the medium size fit snugly, do not easily slip out, and are very comfortable."
_
"Great fit"
_
"Love it fits perfectly in my ear"
_
"Thanks I really like these and they fit my granddaughter really well!"
_
"They fit very well and are quite comfortable."
_
"They fit in your ears great."

Kindle

Kindle:
"Kindle HDX headphone jack has been faulty on the original and 3 replacements I received so I can't really review the Moshi Moonrock in Ear Headphones because only one side works."
_
"I did discover some slight drawbacks, but they are by no means deal breakers:* CORD BUTTON REMOTE *The button control works on the iPhone, but not very good on the Kindle."
_
"They are unuseable with the Kindle Fire because you either have to use them at an uncomfortable volume, or at a volume that you won't be able to hear."
_
"The sound is amazing from them and I'm so happy about this because the kindle fire, in my opinion,doesn't have great outside speakers and listening to my music on the fire just doesn't sound that great."
_
"First off (and this may be more of an Amazon problem than a Moshi problem) these are billed as Kindle Fire HD headphones however none of the colors actually match up with the official Kindle case colors."
_
"The reason I say this might be an Amazon problem is that the outer box did not reference the Kindle Fire except in one spot where a label appeared to have been taped on."
_
"It was the perfect size to pack with my Kindle Fire."
_
"These are great for use with the Kindle (or any other device that takes a standard stereo plug)."
_
"I prefer other headphones with my kindle, but these are easy to stash into my purse when travelling."
_
"These were a great addition to my Kindle."
_
"I know Amazon advertises these as being for the Kindle Fire , but the Moshi Moonrock headphones are a good choice even if you don't own a Kindle Fire device."

Listening

Listening:
"For me, they are a good 4-star listening experience - not excellent, but not mediocre."
_
"The sound is amazing from them and I'm so happy about this because the kindle fire, in my opinion,doesn't have great outside speakers and listening to my music on the fire just doesn't sound that great."
_
"I found they worked very well whether listening to jazz, classical or rock pop, delivering better sound than most in-ear headphones I've tried in the past."
_
"the call quality is clear and the sound volume for listening to music is good."
_
"but they're fantastic for listening to music or watching a movie when you don't want external noises to disturb you."
_
"I would definately recommend these earbuds for you listening pleasure."
_
"A very nice complement to an iPod or iPad for general music listening."
_

Microphone

Microphone:
"Apple switched the order of the ground and microphone channels, creating a plug that was incompatible with the 4-conductor TRRS 3.5mm plugs that were already on the market at the time."
_
"The mic seems clear enough, though that's hard to rate as the phone on the receiving end is responsible for the quality of the reception as much as the mic is."
_
"On my Blackberry Curve 9360, the headphones sound great, the microphone works, and the control button works for start and pause but nothing else."
_
"The microphone sounds surprisingly good when using on Skype, which is about the only application I use the microphone with."
_
"I like how each side of the earbuds are differently colored, so it is easy to put the correct side that has the microphone in your ear for when you have a call."
_
"The microphone works well, and having a mic + two headphones makes Skyping and chatting online much easier than the single ear phone headsets that I've used before."

Music

Music:
"I have never had any that were this comfortable and allowed you to hear your music as well."
_
"I got a device not supported error when plugging it in, and wasn't even able to listen to music."
_
"THE CASE: I really like the idea of having a sleek carrying case- I don't enjoy untangling my buds when I'm ready to listen to music or an audiobook."
_
"Sound Quality: Excellent for voice and movies and rock music, but not quite as good as the Dulci."
_
"My only complaints on these headphones are that I tend to like my music sound bass-heavy, and the bass wasn't as strong as I'd like it to be."
_
"The sound is amazing from them and I'm so happy about this because the kindle fire, in my opinion,doesn't have great outside speakers and listening to my music on the fire just doesn't sound that great."
_
"I use it mainly to watch TV shows, and the voices are clear and separate from the background noise and music."
_
"I'm not picky at all when it comes to music, and I was happy with my Maxell's m&m's earbuds but with all the positive feedbacks, I decided to give this a try."
_
"It feels comfortable on the ears and the music sounds great."
_
"While the Kindle apparently supports forward and backward functions, on the Galaxy's music player one click on the button was good for starting and pausing playback, but two or more clicks just put it into shuffle mode."
_
"A lot of ambient noise is blocked out, and music sounds true and clear."
_

Noise

Noise:
"*The noise-blocking technology comes about because when these are inserted in your ear, a bit of a seal is created--so it blocks the outside noise, but it also causes a bit of discomfort when the seal is broken."
_
"Also like that the ear buds are different colors -- making it much easier to differentiate L and RThe case is nice neatly holds the earbudsmy one complaint is that the cord conducts a lot of noise to the ear buds as it moves (walking, turning head and other activities."
_
"The disadvantage is that you hear a greater amount of background noise, and people around you hear what you are listening to."
_
"They do a great job of noise cancellation and while I am not an audiophile, to me they have great and clear sound."
_
"As these are noise canceling, they are not good for jogging, running, cycling or anywhere you need hear what's going on around."
_
"I use it mainly to watch TV shows, and the voices are clear and separate from the background noise and music."
_
"great sound - fits ear well and stays in while exercising - has just the right amount of noise cancellation for me"
_
"These cancel out background noises very well, I was completely immersed in my game."
_
"They also fit well enough that they block sufficient ambient noise that I can actually use them to concentrate in a noisy enviroment."
_
"The noise isolation function works very well -- one of the best noise isolators I've used, in fact."

Plug

Plug:
"It comes with a solid plug unfortunately not L-shaped, a not indestructible Y-split, 2 thin soft cables above the split that may tangle, an average not reinforced cable, in-line microphone & controls, 3 sets of differently sized (S, M, & L) stiff silicon ear sleeves tips, and stylish case."
_
"Apple switched the order of the ground and microphone channels, creating a plug that was incompatible with the 4-conductor TRRS 3.5mm plugs that were already on the market at the time."
_
"When I plugged these earbuds into some older MP3 players and older portable stereos, I did not hear the full stereo output from both left and right channels, but if I slightly pulled the plug out about 1 or 2 millimeters, that fixed the problem and I heard the full stereo sound."
_
"Very good ear plugs"
_
"Like that it came with three sizes of ear plugs (the small are perfect for me)."
_
"Luckily, the ear plugs are among the most comfortable plug-style headphones I've used."
_
"To get the headphones into the case, you plug them into their receptacles which works well enough."
_
"The holder is cool, and the headphones plug into it nicely for storage."

Price

Price:
"The sound quality isn't as good as professional cans, but hey, they are relatively cheap earbuds so I didn't expect that."
_
"It's not as bad as the cheap $10 earbuds but not as nice as headphones with the braided fabric cord either."
_
"Since the price range of ear buds varies so much, as does the quality, it's hard to say if the moonrocks price point is on target, I hope so."
_
"it'd be hard to find better quality at this price point (though i think i did get them on a sale price)."
_
"these are great earbuds for the price except they fit terribly in your ear."
