Got these from amazon. I was a bit disappointed when i compared these with sony ericsons in ear pads (the ones that you get with sone ericson phone), These have more higher frequincies and middles are clear too, the bass is powerfull, and theyre very loud, sony ones had increased bass, but these have quality sound. Plus they look very cute, but the plug looks abit ugly even though its mini plug. You can defenetly go for these if you have an Ipod or any other mp3 player where you can set the EQ. (My ipod shuffle 2nd Gen hasnt got EQ function, so thats why i was abit disappointed, i had to limit the vlume so they would not heart my ears).
The earphones I've got have been with me for just about a year now. They are still in fine working condition except for a couple of cracks in both earphones which hurts sometimes. But then again, I haven't been very "gentle" with the way I've handled them.
These earphones are the first ones that I've got that have got in-ear ear-buds, and they're great for blocking out quite a bit of exterior noise. The overall sound quality is excellent too. I find myself enjoying music so much more now and have even begun to use my earphones regularly on my laptop too.
The silicon (I think) material used for the buds are also extremely comfortable. Also, upon my purchase of the earphones, I received another 3 pairs of the earbuds so I could change them should the need arise.
The design of the earphones is stylish and I can actually tell now when I have the earphones on the wrong ears!
One gripe I have would be the length of the cable - found it a bit too long. When I let the earphones hang from my ears, the end just about reaches my knee. This may seem to be a minor thing but it is constantly tangling up with the things I'm holding in my hands or even the occasional stranger's bag (Yep, it has happened a few times now). Also, having a longer cable line means it takes longer to wrap it around my mp3 player.
Other than this relatively minor gripe, these earphones are definitely well worth the cost - they are great with excellent sound quality.
