Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Lightweight, quailty built, great sound, short 4.2 foot cable, In-Line Mic/Button
Cons:Short 4.2 foot cable, slightly uncomfortable during long periods of use, small Y section
The Bottom Line: I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone needing a very good pair of earbuds for cheap. They have AMAZING sound and build quality for their pricetag.
I haven't owned a pair of earbuds in over 8 years because I never really cared for either the comfort of earbuds (if any at all) and I didn't care for the low-end horrible sound quality that earbuds had for that time. Let's just say that these earbuds have better sound quality than my studio headphones, which is still blowing my mind.
Recommend this product?
These headphones deliver an amazing range of deep and midrange bass and midrange to high-end treble, and the midrange for vocals isn't bad either. Unfortunately for you audiophiles out there, I cannot disclose the specifications because they are not listed on the package. Sorry (I wanted to know too...)
You can clearly make out every instrument and person singing in an entire track which is an amazing claim for a pair of earbuds as cheaply priced as these ones.
Quality of Build
These earbuds have an amazingly solid feel to them, and they also have an amazingly high quality cabling as well. The rubber cones on each earbud also have a high quality feel to them and don't quite feel like they're going to go bad anytime soon.
These earbuds have a decent level of comfort. For a couple of hours they don't really feel like they're putting any severe levels of pressure on my inner ear canals. This is actually a positive I have for them, however I have large ear canals. If you have smaller ear canals, they even come with two smaller rubber cones you can place on them for improved comfort.
The only gripe I have with these earbuds is that wearing them feels like I'm wearing those foam earplugs. Extended use ends up feeling awkward and when you pull them out you almost always have some sort of residual earwax on them (but hey, you kinda expect that from earbuds right?)
They do have a Y shape cording though, and that isn't entirely long either, so you could feel as though the earbuds are being tugged on a lot.
In-Line Mic and Button
These earbuds do have a plus side to a standard pair of earbuds: They do come with an in-line microphone/button for use with a standard cell-phone. Single click during music/video playback (even on youtube) causes it to play/pause. Double Click (medium speed, not fast) causes it to skip to next track. Triple Click (medium speed, not fast) causes it to go back a track.
Single click when not using any media brings up your call history, and then single clicking again causes it to dial your most recent call. Single clicking when your phone is ringing answers the call, and single clicking when in a call ends the call. Holding it for any length of time brings up voice-control (if your phone has it).
Overall Quality of Product
These earbuds have to be the best pair of earbuds I've ever owned in my life, but that isn't saying much because I've only worn studio headphones for the past 8 years - but they do have better sound quality and bass response than my current pair of 40mm longstroke driver studio headphones... and that's saying something.
