Is this serious? This cheap? Man I paid mine like 9£ in this store near me. Damn they ripped me off haha. You should definetly buy this earphones because of the quality the have it's just great for their price. And I can tell that my ears don't hurt after wearing them a while but other like this in-ear time are killing me but not these ones. These fit great and really reliable. I didn't know that this is the price that they are goin with if I knew earlier I would not think that just check out with these ones. Just saying and trust me you won't regret it if you buy a pair of these. They have that bass that is great with a little higher music and harder beat. Trust me it is beastly and the price is just silly. Really? Just £1.6 for this, man it got to be some mistake hehe.
Over the last 12 months I have started doing a lot of running, and more often than not, (usually weather permitting) I like to listen to my music while I'm out pounding the footpaths. My Samsung Galaxy phone came with a set of headphones when I first received it about 18 months ago, but just before Christmas I managed to trap one of the buds in my car door when I was rushing off to a race meeting, and so I had to suffer with sound in just 1 ear.
I immediately decided to replace my headphone set, and was pleasantly surprised to see that Samsung offered a set at a bargain of a price - Just under £4 on Amazon!
Prior to spotting these I had envisaged paying at least £10 for a set, so I was happy with this price and ordered them promptly.
The headphones are almost identical to the ones in the picture above, but mine are silver in colour, but other than that they look the same.
They fit into my ears well, and are comfortable when in place, even while I run in them. They also hold into my ears well, which is something that I have struggled with in the past, but the shape of these buds seems perfect for holding into the ear, without offering any discomfort.
The sound quality is good too, really crisp and clear - especially for the £4 price tag. I'm sure some of these £100+ headsets must offer a far superior sound quality, but the quality from this set from Samsung is as good as I have ever experienced and suits me for my running purposes just fine.
The jack plug is the standard fit which you find on all most all appliances such as TV's, PC's, laptops, tablets etc, and as such I have used them several times to watch films with on my laptop.
I'm pleased with my purchase here, and I could not be without a set of headphones to listen to my motivational music whilst running.
In summary they are really simple to fit into the ear and to remove, and they deliver a good stereo sound quality with decent bass. They are soft on the ear, and comfortable, and don't fall out during activities such as running. For £4 you really can't go wrong, and it will not be the end of the world if I happen to damage my set again as they are cheap and simple to replace.
(At time of posting this review this headphone set is £3:90 from Amazon with free delivery).
Thanks for reading.

I ordered these headphones from the internet to go with the Samsung Galaxy Pro phone that I used to have. They were reasonably priced at £3.99 from Amazon. Mine look a little bit different than the ones in the picture, the silver band is bigger and the shape is slightly different too. These headphones look sleek and modern, you can tell that they aren't just the pound shop version!
They feel like good quality headphones, the wire isn't too thin and they don't feel flimsy like most of the cheap pairs I have owned. I like how the wire isn't too thin because it means they don't tangle as easily as cheaper pairs and I have found that it means they won't break too easily either.
I have found these earphones to be comfortable to wear, not too big and not too small so they don't fall out. The part that goes in your ear is cushioned and soft enough not to make the ears start feeling sore after a while of having them. The headphones are smooth in general which I think is a sign of quality, there aren't any jagged or sharp parts on these.
The sound quality is quite clear, the sound is definitely directed into the ear which matters a lot. With some headphones, the sound isn't directed straight into the ear so you can hear a lot of outside noises and the music sounds a lot quieter and not as clear. These also aren't too quiet, there are certain songs on my phone that I can't listen to when I'm out of the house with some other headphones because they're too quiet and the headphones just don't do a good enough job of actually letting me hear the sound! Luckily I haven't had that problem with these, they aren't the loudest headphones I've tried though but the sound quality is very good, especially for the price. I haven't experienced crackling with these and they don't give that tinny sound which I would definitely say means that these are a pretty good quality pair of headphones.
I think £4 is great value for money for these, there are so many different types of headphones out there at all sorts of different prices. I haven't tried any really expensive headphones but I'm sure there are some fantastic ones out there. These are one of the best pairs I've tried in my price range though, they're good quality and well made and I would definitely recommend them.
My Samsung Galaxy ear-buds are silver, unlike the ones in the photograph which are black.
These are on sale online for £4.00 or less so are at the budget end of the market.
I was pleasantly surprised by these ear-buds. The bud is soft and very comfortable when sitting in the ear-canal. Buds which I have used in the past have caused itching and soreness as I have sensitive skin (and very small ears!) but these ear-buds have been a pleasure to wear. These buds look a lot neater than others as the bud is flush to the casing.
The sound quality is very good, which I do find with Samsung products. It is NOT amazing sound don't get me wrong but it is, as I say, very good.
The jack is a standard mp3player jack which can also be used with a variety of other appliances such as TV's and laptops.
I have found these ear-buds to have a better sound-quality than many similarly-priced products. I have had them for a while now and have had no problems with them at all apart from the usual tangling which a cord tidy would solve.
I recommend these ear-phones to anyone who likes to listen to music without that uncomfortable and annoying 'bassy' or 'tinny' sound which comes with many other ear-phones of this price.
I didn't get any headphones with my new phone so I looked online to see if I could find some. I didn't want to pay a lot as I don't really need to use them that often so when I saw this little pair at under £4 on Amazon I decided to give them a go.
The headphones feel quite nice, they do not feel like cheap and cheerful ones like I have bought up the town before (in the cheap shops), they are smooth to touch and have a nice weight to them. The best bit about them is the bit that goes into the ear. I have had a lot of trouble with these bits in the past as I find they hurt my ears like mad after having them in for an hour or so, but these ones have a nice, soft spongey bit that sits in the ear and it is really comfortable to wear.
Another good thing about these headphones is that the plug on them is a normal jack that fits other things too, this is really handy for me as I tend to listen to things on my laptop much more than on my phone so I can use them for this too. I have listened to both music and tv/films through them and have found they give a good sound, it is clear with no extra shushing noises like I have had on other headphones. I also find that they are good in the fact that if my Other Half is watching something else on TV and I want to watch something on my laptop I can hear the sound well and do not have to turn the sound up or get him to turn the sound down on the tv.
I bought a second pair of these for my daughter to use as she kept borrowing mine. She has told me that one of the buds has stopped working on hers but this might be due to the way she looks after them (teenager, everything is thrown over the floor and trodden on) or might be she has been trying to listen to something too loud (not sure if you can blow one of these buds like you could the old stereo speakers if you turned the music up too loud). My ones have been fine though and I have had them since February now and use them a few times a week.
I would recommend these headphones if you want something comfortable to wear in your ear and do not want to pay the earth for a pair.
