Good quality; low price

Pros:Cheap; good fit; isolates outside noise

Cons:Audio seems "muddy" at times; sound isn't much better than standard earbuds

The Bottom Line: Good replacement for standard earplugs but won't beat out higher priced models.


Even though I own a set of Shure SE110 earhphones, I wanted a cheaper set for taking to work or the gym. Since these appeared similar to my Shure set, I figured these would be a good choice.

I picked them up for around $20 and expected adequate sound with reasonably good comfort. I found them to fit these standards.

The foam used in the earplug-style phones is slightly hard, making it difficult to squish them enough to place them inside the ear canal. However, the benefit of using this style means that the sound is closer to your eardrum so you can have a lower listening volume. Additionally, the earplug-style means more ambient noise is blocked out vs. earbud-style so you don't have to compensate as much.

The speakers themselves aren't the best quality. Obviously $20 earphones won't compare to $100 phones but this model sounded a little muddy. Sound quality seems pretty equivalent to the standard iPod earbuds; you just don't have to turn up the volume as much to hear your music.

Included in the package is a second set of "earplugs". I didn't notice a size difference so I suspect they are simply replacement plugs rather than for people with small ears.

There's not much else to say about these except that my cat loves to chew on them. I think he likes the squishiness of the earplugs, so just beware of your pets.
