  Great Buy

First of all these are great headphones for the price, after using similar priced headphones and being disappointed, I started a search for some better quality but well priced headphones, these fit the bill perfectly. However there are a few points to consider, the bass is very deep and clear, this is good at times, however at other rimes they do drown out the treble and middle. If you listen to music with a lot of bass then these are perfect.

  Epic sound!

| | See all Dennaska's reviews (1)

I don't normaly type up reviews, but the headphones are epic! I listen to alot of bassy music and when I listened to my music for the first time with these it sounded like I was in a club! Yes they are bulky but it delivers the power and the volume expected! Naturaly though I have one of those easr types where in ear headphones keep coming out but get a headover problem solved!

  Great value for money but sound quality doesn't last long

I was skeptical about buying these as I normally opt for some Sony or Sennheiser buds. But as these were a good price and reviews seemed to bump my confidence, I went for them.

When I first received them, I wasn't all that impressed. Quite a bulky build (but sturdy) and sound was a bit muffled. But as always, I gave them a few hours of play to 'run in'; after which, I was quite amazed at what I was hearing! Despite the bulky look, they are surprisingly lightweight too, and don't feel much different to the more compact Sennheiser's - sitting quite nicely in my ears. Bass is very punchy and dynamic and the highs and mids aren't too bad either (getting better as it ran in a little more) balancing it all out quite well.

All sounds good, but the reason I am only giving 4* is because I've found these bud's sound quality to deteriorate rather quickly compared to my previous buys. This is more noticeable at lower volumes and don't seem to get that nice balanced sound until at much higher volumes (often too loud). So that is my only gripe. Because of which, I don't think I would buy these again due to the short life span...the hunt still remains for the perfect mid-budget set!

Sound quality: 4.5* to start and 3 after a few months of use
Build quality: 5*
Accessories: 3.5* (Carry case is too bulky. 3 different sized buds are good but I prefer the dual layered ones that come with Sennheiser...which fit on this pair if you have some)

  great base

Received these this morning. There great looking and the quality is good. The Bass holds up very well in bass heavy songs. The treble isn't as good but still ok. Well worth the money.

Using headphone's for Galaxy S III

  Don't hesitate!

I have had many in-ear headphones such as Sony, Sennheiser etc and these headphones are 10x better!! The wire is really thick and not at all filmsy. The bass and mids on this are fantastic and the highs are sharp! With a decent EQ setting, they would sound even better! It all comes with a handy case to store them. Bought these for the gym and will be perfect.

For the price, these are excellent value for money and you will not be disappointed!!

  Xtreme good value!

No question, for the money these headphones give brilliant bass-heavy sound which is on a par with many 3 x the price. My main problem is the design - they sure ain't pretty! My ears are far from small but these stick out like 2 Xmas baubles, they're huge and not the most comfortable of in-ear headphone. Finally, give them a 20-30hr chance to 'break-in' and you'll find the overall sound really does improve after the initial loud, slightly ear-piercing thud they give!

  Great for Metal too!

It's not just the bass that these handle well, although a bit of playing with your graphic equaliser will be needed to get the right balance. These things are just amazing, not just for the price. I've paid 5 times the price for headphones in the past and they haven't been this good. If you like any kind of music, get these.

Was a little hesitant to buy what seem such cheap headphones as normally, you get what you pay for. They arrived today and as soon as I took them out of the packaging I knew these weren't just another cheap pair of headphones. The sound quality is fantastic, nice and bassy. The ear pieces that come already attached are very comfortable and you get different sizes with them as well just incase. You also get a little case with them too which is handy. Overall I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for replacements to the terrible iPod/Apple earphones, or any other for that matter! I've had rather expensive Sennheiser in the past and to be perfectly honest I prefer these already.
