"these earphones suck the sound quality is terrible and they have no bass they are also too small."

"I bought these for $10 and all I have to say is SAVE YOUR MONEY FOR SOMETHING ELSEThese earphones have a super tingey and distorted noise to them it's very unpleasant."
_
"The worst of all earphones I have ever used (and I've used a ton of earphones).I used them while running and had to just take them off because it drove me crazy."
_
"You will get the most severe heartbeat sound which, let me say, is the WORST with these earphones."
_
"I boguth these because my old pair of headphones broke, the the shipping was great, the sound quality of these earphones is really nice, i think they sound just like the skullcandy ink'd but just a little less bass, but nothing really noticeable, i would really recommend these to anybody who is looking for a good cheap pair of earphones."

_
"These earphones are great for the price."
_
"This is probably one of the best earphones out there for less."

_
"I love these earphones they are so loud."
_
"These are the best type of earphones a person can have honestly."
