      Great armature earbuds that deliver with sound, but do not last long

      I bought these ear buds around 6 months ago and returned them after 4 months. What swayed me to buy them was the fact that they were less than half price. I thought it was a great deal. Firstly they sound great; they are "armature" and they thus give a very balanced sound. You hear music the way the artist wants you to. You can honestly tell these are great ear buds because the sound indeed is balanced, nothing is too "over powerful," as some ear buds can be. HOWEVER, this is dependent upon the type of music you listen to. I tend to listen to quite a bit of hip hop and I, therefore, require a little more bass. Unfortunately, these ear buds did not deliver in that aspect. BUT when listening to music, such as, pop or R'n'B - these ear buds delivered and gave a great balanced performance. What I loved about these ear buds were the design. They look great. The outer silver cover, is beautiful and very eye catching. The ear buds do indeed look good - something that I would be proud to wear. Moreover. the design is ergonomic. The right and left ear pieces have a subtle change. For example, the left ear piece is curved to fit your left thumb, whilst your right ear piece is curved to fit your right thumb. So, when you pick your ear buds up, you do not need to look to see if you picked up the correct ear piece to put in your ear, you can easily tell because it fits your right/left thumb. It's so convenient. Furthermore, the left and right earpieces are easily distinguishable. The right ear piece is red, whilst the left ear piece is black. Sometimes you know when you have to look for the "L" on the left earpiece and the "R" on the right ear piece - This is more convenient because you can simply tell whether it's the left or right piece by the colours. A BIG problem with these ear buds is the noise that comes when you are moving. The wire rubs against your clothes, which causes this weird noise and this is so frustrating. It interferes with the enjoyment of the music. The ear buds come along with standard tips, but also comply tips, which are amazing but very expensive. The comply tips make the ear buds truly noise isolating; you cannot hear a thing. There was a time when I was listening to the earphones and someone who was sitting right beside me was calling me, yet I couldn't hear a thing. They makes the ear buds sound SO amazing though, because the comply tips conform to the shape of your ear and you thus cannot hear anything but the music. However, comply tips, as amazing as they can be, only last about 1 month (in my experience), before they begin to lose their firmness and they thus become too "soft", whereby they no longer conform to the size of your ear and they no longer stay in your ear like they used to. Comply tips are expensive. A packet of 3 usually come for £10/15 and the problem is that they only last a couple of months, at best. What comes with these ear buds is a great storage case. It's a great accessory and it seems very durable - HOWEVER, despite the fact that I wrapped my earphones carefully into it and used it constantly, one of the ear buds stopped working, after 2 months (the left one.) Therefore, although the storage case is great... my ear buds unfortunately didn't last as long as expected. (I was fortunate enough that the seller took them back and gave me a refund.) Overall, the ear buds are relatively cheap and come with great accessories. However, based on my experience, they do not last very long.
