These headphones sound excellent! I was a little dubious about them, having not heard of the manufacturer before, but I'm very glad I took the chance.
I agree with other other reviewers that the bass is very strong, and so i have changed the sound settings on my iPod touch (depending on the music I'm listening to its either on vocal or acoustic, if anyone out there is interested) which has helped balance the sound some, but I'm sure you'll be able to play to find your preferred settings!
As with all bud headphones (this is my third pair in 5 years, the others being Sony and Phillips, respectively) the sound quality suffers if they do not fit correctly, so you have to play around with both the bud size and the depth at which you wear them, but once you find a sweet spot they are truly brilliant. As a side note, wearing them looser or with smaller buds reduces the bass.
I'm very happy with these, they tick every single box for me, and they only lose a star for the effort required to get them set how you want them.
Edit: 6 months of the work bag was too much for them, both buds have fallen apart on separate occasions. They're not particularly mistreated, they're in the top of the bag in a player pouch wrapped around the iPod and are shielded from the brunt of any impacts by the padding in the pouch and being elevated from the base of the bag and its contents. Both times this was easily fixed with a dab of superglue. When in parts the wires were openly exposed and showed signs of damage during construction(fraying, damage to wire from stripping, stripped wires in contact with each other). Now (the past week) the left bud has started crackling on bass notes down to half volume (and as it's still the ipod touch about half volume is where sound really fills out and becomes richer). Thinking I'll find a new set from a different brand, maybe some of the cheaper sennheiser bud earphones, the search continues
These in-ear phones were a good acquisition. They offer great quality sound, powerful bass, excellent noise isolation, a stylish design and a specially designed jack to prevent contact and corrosion.
The bass in these ear-phones is very powerful! You can really feel it and so much so for me, I had to change the sound settings on my I-Pod! Maybe that tells you just how strong the bass is in these earphones.
These earphones are sit in earphones, with buds on the end. The buds make for a comfortable listening experience and the sound quality will differ depending on where they sit in your ear. Once you find the perfect spot, the sound quality will be top notch.
The earphones are constructed sturdily, meaning if thrown in a bag, with a lot of other stuff they will stick together. The earphones also will stay in your ear, unlike other similar earphones.
The sound clarity is fantastic. You can hear each instrument clearly in any song, and there is never any static. As mentioned the earphones cut out a great deal of external noise which is great!
These earphones are great value for money, sturdy, good quality, great bass and comfortable. Buy these earphones!
These Exspect earphones are well... not what you expect. The photo doesn't do the shine and the luminosity of the fuax metal justice. The looks of these 'phones are like the subway, you're either on board or on the platform. Unfortunately I'm on the platform. I tend to buy earphones to reduce the visibility of listening to an MP3 player, not to advertise to people that I have bling sticking out of my ears. All that being said, some people love that kind of stuff. So if you like to show off and peacock a bit then by all means get a pair, but if you like to sit in peace on the train, spend a little more and get the Sennheisers
I bought these earbuds for about £4 so I wasn't expecting the world, and while I didn't get the world I was pleasantly surprised. The noise cancelling effect of the buds is okay though it can be a touch uncomfortable with long uses. I managed to get through a whole Terror Squad album without complaint from my library neighbour, so that has to count for something. The sound is clear, if it is lacking depth at the distant ends of the spectrum. They do cost £4 though so they were never going to compare to Sennheisers costing 10 times as much, or Shures costing 100 times more.
Build quality is surprisingly good despite the flimsy looks and I would wager it would be difficult to break these phones accidentaly. The looks are hit or miss but I wouldn't hold that against them. Sound quality is far better than the pricetage suggests and the average iPod listener will not be disappointed. I'd recommend them to anyone who wants a solid pair of earphones but isn't willing to pay serious money. Not for the shy amongst us though!
I bought these headphones last week and they are the best I have had. I usually only spend £10 on headphones but I saw these ones and thought they looked quite nice. They are metal (or metal polished) and have a silver/grey cable. Most headphones I have owned consist of 2 wires coming from the end and are glued together, these however are 1 cable enclosed in a thick plastic casing which split at end and unless you really pull it hard your not going to separate them.
These are in-ear headphones which mean that they have little plastic buds which fit inside your ear, instead of just rest on them like normal headphones.
Some people don't like them because they are uncomfortable or they don't fit but I can't use anything but in-ear headphones. If they don't fit you can always change the tips as they come in 3 sizes.
I have found with some headphones the tips can fall of easily but these ones and tightly fitted.
The connector pin is gold coated which means that there is a better connection.
I haven't owned a pair of headphones that are as basey as these ones. You can really tell that there is base in the songs you listen to with these.
The most annoying thing I have ever had with headphones are ones that have thin wires, this will get interference from other electricals. For E.G. mobile phone signals and you get a humming noise if you have your phone on your. These don't have that problem and you don't hear a thumping noise every time they hit your body which is also annoying.
They did cost me about £20 from Amazon and it is money well spent.
Recommend to everyone.
