Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

"Unfortunately, the cable on these is cheap and tangles easily."
_
"First, I will explain the con'sCON'sThe cord is about 4.5 feet long and can be a little annoying."
_
"Only problem I've had is that the long cord is easily tangled, and I have to spend a couple of minutes detangling prior to using them! "
_
"Only negative is can also be seen as a positive: cord length is a bit on the long side."
_
"My biggest gripe is that the cord seems too long and flimsy...but the sound quality is very good...kind of a no-brainer purchase."
_
"Only complaint is the cord seems too long."
_
"The HJE350s do have the best construction of the 3 I tested and the cable is bit thicker, so tangles less."
_
"Unfortunately, the cable on these is cheap and tangles easily."
_
"Good isolation and extremely long cord that has an adjustable thingie (don't know the technical term) so you can set it to what you like."
_
"The feel of the quality of the cord is great for the price, and the sound is fantastic."
_
"Best headphones I've ever had, I'm super active and I need the kind of clips and long cord that comes with these headphones, they have great clarity and have never once fallen out of my ears while I'm running or during any of my workouts."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"Over the years I've gone through loads of different in-ear headphones in an attempt to find a comfortable pair with good sound quality for a relatively low price."
_
"I bought a pair of these for my husband after reading the huge helping of positive reviews and he loved them so much that he ordered some for me right away lol They're quite comfortable, have very clear sound with no noise and have great bass, which I've never really experienced with earbuds."
_
"What might seem like an uncomfortable design is actually quite comfortable on the ears."
_
"I used the small 'tips' included (i have very small ears and wearing standard sized earplugs even are very uncomfortable) and they're reasonably comfortable."
_
"Sounds great, comfortable & for 20 bucks how could you go wrong."
_
"As other reviewers have mentioned, these earbuds do not only sound great, but they are extremely comfortable."
_
"Comfortable with good sound quality."
_
"Over the years I've gone through loads of different in-ear headphones in an attempt to find a comfortable pair with good sound quality for a relatively low price."

Design

Design:
"The design of the earbuds makes it hard to take off the earpads, much less accidentally losing them, which is what I constantly did with my JVC earbuds."
_
"What might seem like an uncomfortable design is actually quite comfortable on the ears."
_
"I think it is the design that makes it hard to get a the full experience for music."
_
"The only things:--Could've used a cord winder--The buds' design has a tendency to get uncomfortable, but only after prolonged use."
_
"The first problem was that despite their design and advertising claims, they did not stay in my ears."
_
"Pioneer didn't produce very lifelike bass and treble while the Audio Technica just kept falling out of my ears (they're not well designed to fit in the ear)."
_
"The way that the headphones are designed the buds rest comfortably in my ears so I barely notice them and they actually stay in instead of falling out like many of the other pairs of ear buds that I've owned."
_
"The sound quality is good and I like the design that Panasonic included to tie the headphones around your head to reduce motion noise."
_
"These are a super comfortable design."
_
"They even have this creative design where you can wear them around your neck to keep it secure or convenience when you just want to let them hang."
_
"A nice element of design were the silicone ear pieces being retained with a slight bit of stretch and in an oval shape, this really grabs on to the ear piece and keeps it from coming out even in the case of an accidental tug."

Fit

Fit:
"I have small ear canal's and regular style headphones (such as the ones that you get with your ipod) do not fit comfortably."
_
"Since I never achieved a good fit, I cannot rate the sound quality."
_
"I'm a little disappointed, I thought it would fit in my ear better."
_
"I have never had headphones that actually went into the start of the ear canal, so it's very possible that my problem with these would be the same with all earbuds that actually fit inside the ear canal..."
_
"These earbuds not only fit and stay comfortably in my ears, a problem that seems to have constantly presented itself in my past dealing with other inexpenxive earbuds, but the sound quality is comparable if not better than that which the Sennheisers produced."
_
"Pioneer didn't produce very lifelike bass and treble while the Audio Technica just kept falling out of my ears (they're not well designed to fit in the ear)."
_
"These buds are shaped the same as the HJE350s, which is a good thing as they fit me well."
_
"They are very well-made, the sound quality is excellent, and the fit is perfect."
_
"the sound was crisp, the bass was on point, the highs were crisp as well and they fit in your ear nicely."
_
"FITTING: 8 10 they are a strange shape but comfortable once you get used to themSOUND: 9 10 these sound amazing."
_
"the sound is veeeerrry clear, part of it is because the way they fit into your ear."

Loud

Loud:
"The only negative I found is when you are listening to loud music or setting the volume high they blast the sound outwards (not good in a library setting).Overall, they lasted a long time and are still working even with a little bit of distortion, but for the price they are pretty good."
_
"Even just a light head turn to open my file cabinet results in the most annoying loud paper-rubbing-on-cloth sound you can imagine."
_
"These earbuds turned up all the way on several devices were not very loud and the bass response was horrible (very flat)."
_
"Over all I will say its great for not loud environments but def not so great for coffee shops or houses where people are always talking around you etc."
_
"They have great sound and can get loud without getting scratchy."
_
"They do a good job at blocking outside sound which is good when I use them in a crowded, loud gym."
_
"They are also VERY LOUD which I love."
_
"They are very comfortable to wear over long periods of time but they dont isolate noise good enough and arent very loud."
_
"I use headphones all the time, rather than disturb the neighbors with loud music, & these turned out to be a great value."

Music:
"OK for voice or videos, but missing both bass and high end for any sort of music listening."
_
"The only negative I found is when you are listening to loud music or setting the volume high they blast the sound outwards (not good in a library setting).Overall, they lasted a long time and are still working even with a little bit of distortion, but for the price they are pretty good."
_
"I am not cheap..I was looking for pairs under 50 bucks to listen to music casually that we're mobile enough for excessive workouts and carrying around everywhere on the commute so....no over the head earphones."
_
"This is the reason i gave them 4 stars, iv'e own panasonic earbuds before and they had the same problem which for some who like to hear every tiny bit of music clear, is a downside."
_
"I think it is the design that makes it hard to get a the full experience for music."
_

_
"Nice ear buds, and the sound they produce in your ear will have you enjoying your music all day long."
_
"great price, great music."
_
"I enjoy listening to music when I run, but the feedback generated by the cords bouncing around is distracting."
_
"I wasn't looking for noise cancelling headphones, but these buds block out all other sounds when music is playing which is really nice."
_
"Date bought - 6 3 2012Current date - 1 27 2013Positives: To start with I enjoyed having these headphones, I listen to a lot of music around 6 hrs day, and these headphones are just starting to distort the high sounds now."

_
"A lot of plusses -- very comfortable, buds fit nicely into your ear and stay put; well-made and reliable; the sound quality is good -- not tinny -- but not exceptional; decent at blocking outside noise."
_
"I have been very happy with these earbuds - they stay in my ears much better than my previous pair without being uncomfortable, and they effectively block most of the noise of the BART trains I ride to and from work."
_
"they also block out noise well."
_
"These were also very kool looking.4 stars because I never give 5 stars unless it is outwardly incredibleProsThey have decent noise isolationThey are durable as heck!"
_
"Additionally, the buds block out most surrounding sound and I feel I can use them as effective noise dampeners on airline flights."
_
"I listen to audiobooks all day, so I can't comment on sound quality other than to say they block out outside noise and my books sound great."

Size

Size:
"However, switching to the smaller size solved that problem."
_
"For me, these in ear headphones are very uncomfortable, no matter which size rubber dohicky I try."
_
"I would say that amazingly enough, these are very heavy on the bass so you will need to EQ your music player accordingly, but that is a really good problem to have with phones this small."
_
"Other than that one small problem, I love the product."
_
"They are L shaped plugsThey have great bass and sound volume for priceDiff size ear budsThey don't fall offThey don't have wire noiseLong cordDid I mention good sound qualityConsWish it could have more boom to them..I know they are 20 bucks..just like..wish there was that extra boom u find in 50-100 buck earphones."

iPod

iPod:
"I have small ear canal's and regular style headphones (such as the ones that you get with your ipod) do not fit comfortably."
_
"I needed some new earbuds as the ones that came with my iPod continually fell out of my ears, and were painful to wear after a short time."
_
"Bought these to replace the junk earbuds that come with the iPod because they would not stay in my ears even when sitting still at a desk."
_
"It does well on some bassy deep notes, but certain other deep notes especially true deep bass sounds crackly or weak; infact enabling bass booster on my IPOD leads to persistent crackle."
_
"The bass response just seems weak, and when I changed the equalizer settings on my iPod to make it stronger, the music sounds unnatural to me."
_
"These sound great and have very little distortion up to like 95% volume on my iPod."
_
"When comparing them with my iPod earbuds, they measure up well."
_
"I'll probably keep these until I can pickup some Apple earphones of the type that come with the IPOD originally as those have provided the best all around sound quality so far."
_
"To be clear, I use them with an iPod Shuffle, no controls for bass or treble."
_
"OK, these are not the most expensive headphones, but in 6 years of Ipod use they are by far and away the best I have tried at this price level in all ways."
