4.5 These will blow you away (but keep hold of the warranty!) parallaxed | 09/04/2010 | See all parallaxed's reviews (3) Looking around the net you'll see reviews that praise this product for sound quality. They are not wrong. For the price, this product has very crisp response at all frequencies, and are an absolute dream to have in your ears. The buds are very comfortable and the drivers are tiny. Sit them right in your ears and prepare for new experiences. The bass performance is well-balanced with the other end of the spectrum and doesn't muffle.There are two minor gripes that, in my mind, given the sound quality, do not marr a 5 star rating overall:1) The cable is badly designed. It will break after 6-8 months unless you treat it delicately. In short it does not wear well. The good news is that this fault is covered by the 1yr warranty that comes with the product. Creative will happily replace them for free when this happens.2) Noise from cable contact (rubbing on clothing, collar etc) is slighly above par in comparison with other earbuds. Solution: crank up the volume.
