Member Name: harrysthirtyfive
Advantages: Cheap, variety of buds, fairly well built
Disadvantages: Average sound quality, no noise isolation, Average loudness
Admittedly after buying my iPod the main reason I threw the standard 'iconic' white earphones away was because my ears are weird and they don't fit....I do however hear a lot of disgruntled friends who's ears they do fit ranting about how the sound quality is also a lot less than they would expect from Apple. I am a sound technician so I get given a lot of free pairs of earphones and headphones for my opinion and for promotion of shops etc.
I am a very picky consumer, especially when it comes to anything involving sound or music (being a sound technician) so my research was extensive. I of course have a few pairs of large studio quality headphones but these aren't exactly the sort you want to have in your pocket or on the bus. Upon receiving these I found that tehy are available between £10 and £15 so they're a very reasonable price.
Straight out of the box I noticed the variety of 'buds' (the piece of rubber attached to the speaker to go in your ear)...making them a good buy for people with all ear sizes. The bud fits snuggly into your ear but unfortunately does an under average job of isolating background noise, but any noise isolation in this price range is a rare thing. I used them for a few days with average results as far as sound quality and comfort are concerned....
SOUND QUALITY : 5/10
BASS : 4/10
COMFORT : 7/10
SOUND CLARITY: 6/10
For the cost these are the sort of in-ear bud earphones one would expect. I have had them for around 6 months now and have discovered no lack in build quality or deterioration of sound quality. I would recommend seriously considering another brand such as sennheiser for this type of earphone as in my experience they come off better as far as sound goes.
Summary: There are better pairs on the market for this price.
