Advantages: Cheap, look nice!
Disadvantages: not the greatest sound quality!
These earphones are amazing, I absoulty love them. I was recommended them by a friend and ever since then I always buy Gumy's. I have not been able to find another pair of eraphones as good as these for the same amount of money!
I am not very good with earphones and normally break them with in a month and I've have bought a lot of crappy and poorly made earphones, so these have saved me a lot of money as they normally last about 4-6 months. For me that is really good as I use them a lot, like 5 times a day, and I have the volume really loud, which I know is bad for my ears. That was a problem for a lot of other brands I used as I played music so loud one eraphone would always blow, so I would end up having to buy another pair and this became expensive, with gummy's I probably end up spending between £18-20 on earphones a year. The reason I don't save that money and invest in a more expensive pair is beacuse I will break them just as easily, at least with Gumy's they are cheap and last 6 months of admittly not being treated well! They cost about £8 from tesco but you can normally find them on Amazon for around £5.
The design of these are really good as well, they sit really comfortably in your ear and beacuse they are in a sort of rubber casing they are really durable. I don't take great care of my earphones but these ones seem to be able to with stand being yanked about and they can deal with playing loud music. I think the volume with these earphones is much better than any others I have used, and though they are not the best sound quaility and at full volume they can become a bit muffled for the money the are very good.
Also what I love about this make is the different colours they come in: white, black, blue, pink, purple, green, orange and yellow, there is a very wide selection and all of them are really bright and funky looking. The design works really well with the bright colours and it also means that you can find earphones that match the colour of your ipod/mp3, which though superficial is always nice!
I find that the rubber material they are made of makes them easy to untangle and they are quite long so you can keep your ipod/mp3 in your pocket and it doesn't feel like the earphones are being pulled on. That is another problem I had with other brands they weren't long enough so when I put my ipod/mp3 in my pocket it felt like the earphones were being tugged on everytime I moved. Also something I have notice is the rubber casing makes them nore resilient to water and though I don't suggest using them in the bath or anything, I have spilled things on them a couple of times and the seem to be fine.
I think these are well worth the money, they last for ages and probably if treated better would last even longer. They in my eyes are really durable, they are better quality than other cheap brands but just as good as some more expensive ones.
I really love these earphones and have reccomended them to loads of my friends, who all realy like them too. For the price and the design these earphones are amazing and well worth buying.
This review is also on ciao :)
Summary: I love them and would reccommend them!
