Now this is what I'm talking about. These boys fit so nice. I remember when I had my first android I got rid of the generic earphones and got this from the local market here and I was thrilled. These earphone have the best quality for their money. I remember I bought them for like £5 and the were really kicking it just nice quality of the sound. Back then I was bumping that hip.-hop and it was all about beat which these earphones did great from that part but they have one problem and that is near plug-in cable is really thick and that was the end of mines earphones they broke there and one earphone stopped working and in next 2-3 days the other one just stopped working too. Really sad that all of mine earphones are breaking there and don't know why maybe of my pocket but there a warning for you just watch for them they are very very nice.
WHAT ARE THEY?
In ear earphones available ina small range of colours.
ARE THEY ANY GOOD?
No. These earphones are uncomfortable in my ears because they rub quite badly after I've been wearing them for more than a few minutes at a time. Mine are purely white and after less than a week they looked very grubby and I could never get them looking as clean as they were again.
The Thomson earphones don't stop either sound leaking from my music and don't keep the traffic noise from spoiling my enjoyment of the music. Sound is very indistinct when I wear these earphones, it's very tinny and even when I turn the volume right up I have trouble making out the nuances of the music and even lyrics can be so indistinct that I can sometimes not make them out.
The jack plug used to slide smoothly into my iPod and my unbranded MP3 player but now it feels very gritty even though I keep both the jack and the socket clean at all times. When I run my finger along the metal jack it feels like its been pitted a bit, this can't be through overuse because I have not worn them very often because of the disadvantages I have already mentioned.
When I first bought these earphones I liked them and still think they have an attractive crisp design, if they worked better I would definitely have replaced them but as they are so uncomfortable and because they spoil my enjoyment of my music I am now going to purchase another brand.

I listen to music all day, every day. At times, I worry that if I don't put down my iPod at some point, it will eventually become fused to the palm of my hand. So naturally, I always experience somewhat of a crisis when my headphones cease to function. The last such incident took place travelling home via train, and standing in WH Smith, I had to choose my latest incarnation of headphones. Usually unwilling to spend too much on headphones, I decided to venture more towards the mid-range headphones. For £12.99, the Thomson HED142 headphones seemed to imply reasonable quality through their price tag. I got my pair in a light blue hue, although there are white, pink and black counterparts available.
The headphones feature the in-ear design, which I know can be polarising as many people find them invasive and uncomfortable. However, for me, I prefer the feel of these types of headphone as they make for a more secure fit - never falling out during exercise and successfully blocking out background noise so you hear more of your music. These headphones come with three changeable heads, supposedly to fit different sized ears - however, the largest size seems unfathomably large - I can only assume elephants have since discovered the MP3 player and now require headphones. As this review shall explore, the smallest size is by necessity, the only bud that you can use, given that the larger sizes contribute considerably the distortion of already poor quality headphones.
I was severely disappointed by the headphones on experiencing the audio quality. Ultimately, a snug fit, a respectable brand and appealing aesthetics mean nothing if your headphones produce sub-par sound. I began listening and instrumentals seemed fairly crisp and clear, particularly anything with a heavy bass - often a problem for cheap headphones which rattle or become crackly with basslines. Then came the vocals. For some reason, every track on my iPod now sounds as if the singer is performing underwater with these headphones. The music seems to drown out the voice, and has severely compromised my enjoyment of my music. The problem was marginally better when I switched the earbuds to the smallest option, but still the problem with vocals persisted - to the point where I no longer use the headphones, as instrumentals and beats drown out any singing on the track. What is embarrassing is that I have done side-by-side tests with other iPods playing the same song, and the difference in quality can be seen when £5 headphones surpass the quality of these.
I wish I had never bought the product, as while they sound marginally better when used with a laptop as opposed to an MP3 device or iPod, I really have no use for them if they ruin the mixing of a track. They definitely have added credence to my scepticism that an elevated price can guarantee an increase in quality of a product. My advice for fellow consumers - avoid this product like the plague. If you are investing in new headphones, do your research first. If you, like me, are caught short while travelling - then go for the cheaper headphones, for me, these were a gamble that I well and truly lost.
