  Beautiful Piece Of Kit

| | See all teejay's reviews (1)

For the value given these possibly are contenders for the best earphones (for the money). However after 6 months they did like many other reviewers have said, go fuzzy in the left headphone. 6 months is a good lifespan for headphones. Good buy.

  Great until they break - I've had two pairs

| | See all MyNextTrick's reviews (1)

Sound quality is excellent, and the price is amazing, but don't expect them to last. I've had two pairs and both times the sound has gone in one ear. Annoying!

I didn't treat them with kid gloves, but I looked after them well enough for them to last more than 6 months.

  Great, But eventually broke.

| | See all JddSizz's reviews (1)

Really great earphones which blocked out the surrounding noise so i could hear my music at the best quality. Nice and comfortable ear plug.
However, after around 6 months the left earphone started crackling and the next day completely broke.
6 Months is a decent time for them to last and i think they were worth the money.

  Good Phones, Good value

Well I broke from tradition as I usually favour Sennheiser for their stellar base and clarity (CX300, CX 400 CX500 and PX 100's) I also own Shure and Sony but these little beauts compare favourably with any of them, Straight out of the pack, plugged them in to a trusty Zen Vision M and thought the sound was too harsh on the mids and the boomy base made my eyes pop....but, I realised I had the Zen set up for the CX 500's so unchecked the equaliser settings, knocked off the base boost and bingo! They are superb without any output tweaks on the Zen, and similaly, give great natural sound off my Sony and Cowon D2. Good crisp highs, nice mellow mids and a punchy base. And don't forget that this is straigh from the pack - all phones/speakers improve over use. Only minor down side is the straight in plug - I do prefer the L type. But overall really well pleased - for the money you just can't go wrong. trust me - cos I'm real picky !

  Great Headphones, Easy to Break

| | See all billyrohnsen's reviews (1)

These are the best headphones I have owned, particularly in combination with my zen x-fi (which they come bundled with).

My only problem is that I go through so many, as the bond between the two halfs of the earpieces is attached only using clips, making it very week. If you drop your mp3 player whilst these are in your ear they will like come apart and the connection will be broken.

Here is my advice: as soon as you buy these headphones, carefully prise open the two halfs of both earpieces and add a nice amount of superglue to stop them from breaking.

  Great earphones!

| | See all DaveRUK's reviews (10)

Used to own a pair of ep-630s, but after going through 3 or 4 pairs of these I thought I'd try a change (ep-630s are great, and I use my earphones a lot and don't treat them all that well, hence why I get through so many pairs!)

I tried a switch to sennheiser cx500 and hated them, far too bassy, silly in-line volume control that broke and not nearly as comfortable as my ep-630s. Do not buy them!

Decided I'd try these as they were only 3 quid more than the ep-630 phones, and have to say I really like them! Sound is more spatious, and bass is more responsive without being overpowering. Just as comfortable as the 630s and the construction feels a little more rugged.

Not 5 stars because creative are still fitting the straight headphone jacks, not the 90 degree jacks which last so much longer!

  Generally Good Earphones

| | See all obranagan's reviews (1)

Can't really complain, generally good earphones at a good price. Had a good two months out of them with excellent sound before needed to replace.

This doesn't seem a lot. but it's the average time it seems to take for any earphones to lose sound quality (two months/ on for 8 hours every day) I have yet to find the perfect earphones that will last me ages.

  Best Headphones

Really good headphones
I think they're better than the apple headphones you get with the iPods
Brilliant sound quality
And a good price

  Not as good as the EP630's despite increase in bass

| | See all stooja's reviews (1)

What i loved about my EP630's is that they seemed like a really well balanced pair of headphones. While the increase in bass is fantastic on the EP830's, it muddies up the rest of the song and isn't as clear and balanced. Not necessarily a drawback but if your really fussy about your headphones then i'd go with the EP630's. Still, not a bad product though for the price.

  2 weeks and broken

I moved my arm a bit too fast which would pull any other earphone out of your ear, with these the earphone snaps, wires hang out, in it loses functioning within 2 days. Not impressed.

This could be due to a lack of care on my behalf however, so buy these if you're a very careful person, as they worked perfectly before hand, just be very gentle!
