Lol, I can understand why someone has moaned about the packaging as they are well packed and it takes a few minutes to get in but come on!! The earphones are absolutely fantastic brough me a set and then the girlfriend did too!! The bass reproduction and range of sound is awsome!! I have loads of earphones such as Philips ear gear and JVC Marshmallow and none of my others are anywhere near as good quality or as comfortable as these! Seriously im marking these on sound quality and comfort, not packaging.
