Cable

Cable:
"My gripes were, why is it $80+ earbuds DO NOT have anti-tangle cords, why do they use traditional crappy cable?"

_
"Furthermore, as is the problem with most headphones, the cord is long enough for someone 7 and half feet tall to use..."
_
"Cons:-high treble's that can hurt (just add an eq)-tangle free cable fails to do its job at times."
_
"The cable didn't seem damaged."
_
"I got the monster cables for my hug he loves music and because it had different ear plugs was a great gif the case was awesome also that's why I gave it a 5 star."

Fit

Fit:
"But I'm not sure if I would pay full price to have these in my hands : Pros: tight bass, live sound , very stylishCon's: they don't have the best fit, lack in the highs, the remote doesn't work for modern phones"
_
"These won't shatter your ear canals with bass like beats, but they will give you the sound as it was meant to be played.+ Simply the best sound for the price range (At time of review it was $60)+ Fantastic noise cancellation+ Durable+ Assortment of fittings to ensure perfect- Junk in-line controls- Belt case sub par- Unappealing design."
_
"Considering the number of tips included, it's hard to beleive that I could not find a good fit."
_
"(make sure you try at least most of the different ear-plugs to get the right sound and fit, because the ones that don't fit actually dont sound as clear as the ones that do, it's kinda weird) But these headphones are fabulous."
_
"Sadly my ears are weird so the only ones that would fit were the 'christmas tree' shaped tips."
_
"I have seen other headphone reviewers complain about the in-ear fit not working for them, but that just isn't the case with these."
_
"There are plenty of ear-tips to choose from, and it's easy to get a comfortable fit (even though the headphones are larger than most).The headphones work well when they aren't broken (the sound quality is pretty good and they do a decent job of blocking out sound)."

"So let's get to it, these earphones are stunning straight out the box they have a very nice finish and come with lots of ear tips so you can find your right fit as well as coming with a cozy little carrying pouch for on the go."

_
"So, it is possible to have them build you some ear molds to fit these headphones, and that would be a winning combination."
_
"The variety of tips allows a perfect fit for anyone..."

Listening:
"These are not quite as good over all ranges in your listening music but the comfort is far superior"
_
"If you're going to sit down and use them at a desk they would do fine but they aren't great for on-the-go listening."
_
"They have excellent imaging but if you're listening to some mp3's that are not well recorded, you will then easily hear imperfections on the music (fade in and out)..."

"But with the custom EQ on the J3, you will have a good time listening to these."

Music

Music:
"These are not quite as good over all ranges in your listening music but the comfort is far superior"

_
"Thinking I must be missing something, I decided to try out some vocal music, playing Michael Buble (Home and a few other pieces)."

"For live music they do provide a great listening experience for the brief moment they set in your ears the right way."

Noise

Noise:
")I used these on my last airplane trip and they do a nice job of noise isolation (again they're the Best of the Buds), but they don't work as well as Bose QuietComfort 3 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones in the noise cancellation department."
_
"5 stars excellent noise reduction, great product."
_
"It does a great job holding the phone in place while providing very good noise blocking."
_
"The generous variety of earpieces is extremely helpful in finding the best comfort and noise blocking."
_
"And somehow it also amplifies the normal background noise most recording have, so you can hear that part crystal clear."
_
"These won't shatter your ear canals with bass like beats, but they will give you the sound as it was meant to be played.+ Simply the best sound for the price range (At time of review it was $60)+ Fantastic noise cancellation+ Durable+ Assortment of fittings to ensure perfect- Junk in-line controls- Belt case sub par- Unappealing design."

Packaging

Packaging:
"Day 1: The item comes with a ridiculous amount of packaging."
_
"Given the large variety of headphones out there in every price range and style these do stand out on the looks and packaging aspect, but the sound quality is not necessarily on par with the price (certainly not the retail price, but the current 40% off is an okay value, but not great).Pros:* Like the packaging* Large variety of ear pieces* Included case is nice* iPhone controls workCons:* Sound quality is good for vocal ranges, but really not for a lot of other variety* PriceOverall, these are okay for everyday sort of use to have a headset that fits comfortably and has iPhone integration, however for that purpose this is probably a bit much to pay."
_
"The packaging that these headphones come in is impressive."
_
"Nice very clear sound and nice package with different ear buds."
_
"They come in some great packaging and include two carrying cases and more tips than you can imagine."

Size

Size:
"(I will make this comment easy and fast + less word and sorry if any of my word are wrongly type because English is my second language) It is easy to carry anywhere unlike headphone that you hang on your neck (make you feel uncomfortable unless your neck is small) or put in your carry or case (there are a chance they can break due to the pressure of other object in your carry)."

"Appearance and Fit: The pictures make them look sleek and small, but they are not."
