Having had 2 sets of the standard ipod (classic) headphones fail on me I thought I'd try a 3rd party set. The previous decent reviews led me to these. Glad I did, these things are excellent.
They feel solid and well built. The wires are roughly twice the thickness of my bog standard ipod phones. I rekon they are a good 25% louder. I listen to mosty rock music and they work perfectly, throw on some bass heavy Rage against the machine or something to really get the bass working.
Comes with 3 different sized rubber type attachments for the earpieces. I must have slightly mutant ears as I had to use a small on one ear and a medium on the other, but they fit perfect and do not fall out. They do stick out of the ears more than the phones they were replacing but I don't see that as a problem (some might).
I have been really impressed by these little beasts, I never imagined such an improvement in sound could be attained by spending so little money.
