5 Quality Earphones for under £100Renegade0721 | 24/07/2009 | See all Renegade0721's reviews (2)These earphones are actually pretty good I was sceptical at first considering that I had heard of some people saying that it lacks in bass however after using them my doubts are now gone! They have a quite a lot of bass maybe not as much as the Shure SE310 which I previously owned before they completely lost all their sound after just 10 months but anyway those cost almost four times as much as these ultimate Ears so I guess I can't complain. The sound quality that comes out is very good and clear and I was surprised at the quality of them they are not as good as the Shures I owned but you can't tell the difference in most songs and one advantage that they have over the Shures I previously owned is that they are so much easier to insert into your ears and get a comfortable fit. With the Shures I had to keep re-adjusting so that they would fit properly. Any way they do their job when it comes to sound isolation you can barely hear anything outside but they do allow you to hear some ambience noise so you're not walking around deaf and unaware of what is going on in the world around you.I've managed to get a good fit with the Silicone ear-cushions however I have realised that it does start to hurt a little after long term use but hopefully as my ears get used to them this should not be a problem. The wires are designed so that they don't get tangled and I have to say that I've had no problems with them so far. As for the carry case its plastic and has a kind of cheap weak looking latch that looks like it will break with constant use I have heard of that happening with another user but I should have no worries as I intend on using the carry case that came with my previous Shure SE310 earphones which is of a much higher quality and has a zip close. So if you're looking for a good pair of earphones for under 100 these are a very good buy I highly recommend.
