  Not worth the time or money

| | See all thatoneinthecorner's reviews (5)

I've had two pairs of these, both have suffered from the same problem - after about a month of light-moderate use they just stop making any sound above a whisper, and this has happened just from wearing them when sat down and walking, nothing strenuous on them. Save yourself the hassle and get a pair from Sony or skullcandy for the same price

  Not worth buying!

I think these headphones are by far the worst set i have ever bought. The sound is very poor and every movementh in the cable goes straight in your ear. So save your money, find some better headphones to buy.

  Good for a replacement pair. Not the best.

Bought these as a replacement pair for the ones I used previously which were the ones I got with my Samsung Galaxy S2. I quite liked them, but water got in one of the ear pieces and it died on me.
Since these were only 10 pounds, I thought it can't be that bad. It isn't but it isn't great. I've had these for about a month now and I have used them every day since I've got them.

I go to university 4 out of the 5 weekdays so I'm moving around a lot. When I'm walking I can hear the headphones rubbing against my shirt or jacket and it's not even a faint noise, it's like a thudding noise when I'm walking.

The fit is another thing to complain about. It does come with Small, Medium (already fitted on the headphones) and Large buds. I normally use the medium buds, which fit perfectly fine. But these didn't fit snug like my old pair did. I would have to push it right in, which is irritating.
Of course, if it doesn't fit snug, you're never going to get sound-isolation with them. Which is what IEM are made for.

Sound quality is decent. Bass isn't overpowering, but there is enough of it. Highs and mids are okay.

I lost one of the medium buds in about a week just from taking it out of my pocket. Then lost one of the small ones again, taking it out from my pocket. I can't use the large one because it doesn't fit. So I had some old sennheiser buds, they're a little loose but will do. So my word if advice is be careful with the earbuds, they come off easily.

Overall, the Novero BROOKLYN headphones are good headphones if all you want them for is to replace them for ones that you may have lost and maybe for temporary use.

  Amazing!

Bought a pair of these and they were that good that I went and bought a second pair straight after I got them through the post.

Amazing bass on the and really sturdy.

  Cheap and it shows

These are an obvious rip off / cash in of the expensive Beats headphones. Sound is OK (if not moving anywhere), bass is distorted unless at low volumes and far too tinny. Microphone doesnt work most of the time. Dont know if this is just an isolated issue but on my ipod touch if the jack or cable is moved it sends the sound off or puts the ipod in voice command mode. V annoying. The worst thing is though that it somehow just starts fast forwarding through tracks and wont stop unless you remove the jack and re-insert it? I also have a pair of cx-300s and this has never happened before. Also all the supplied earbuds are tiny.
Overview.
OK if you just need a pair of cheap headphones while you are at a desk or not moving anywhere but useless if you actually want to move anywhere or actually care about music fidelity.

  OK but not perfect

I bought these based on the price and on first viewing they certainly look good, build quality is OK and the flat cable is good, sound quality is acceptable, however, the output volume is very low, I had my ipod volume on full and at the gym it wasn't loud enough, so I ended up buying a pair of Skullcandy Titans and in comparison the Titans output about twice the volume of these and sound quality is superb. So, to conclude, if you want a cheap pair of earbuds and are happy with normal volume then these should suffice, but if you want your sound with a bit more punch, go for the Titans.

  Amazing for the money

These headphones are really well designed and look fantasic. Most of my friends think they are worth 3 times what I paid for them! The flat cable is a nice touch.

The sound quality is excellent, I have been so impressed. These replaced my CX300's and i dont regret it one bit.
