    Good earbuds but bulky

    Really liked these ear buds and the sound but they are too bulky. I guess that is the trade off for the deep bass and crisp sound. I returned them.

    The quality of these headphones are awesome! They are a little bulky that's why I gave it for stars out of five, but, the sound quality makes up for it. They come with a little black bag which helps to keep them from getting tangled on something in my purse and shorting out. I use it with my cell phone to make calls, listen to my bible app and music and also watch YouTube videos. I would definitely recommend this product as it works well for all functions.

    Title says it all, clear bass great sound quality the only bad thing about these is that in low temperatures earphones tend to get really stiff and they get uncomfortable under under the shirt also theyre a bit bulky but I guess theres a price to pay for something good. Id recommend these to anyone looking for budget friendly earphones.

    These aren't the best, but they are really good to have. They are loud, but bulky in the ears.

    Although somewhat bulky, these earbuds provide a decent sound and hold up through heavy usage, where other earbuds tend to fail. Good buy when on sale.

    These had a nice sound. They were kind of heavy and bulky for my tastes.

    I bought these earbuds because using Bluetooth can be a hassle and external headphones are bulky. I find that these earbuds provide reasonable sound quality for audible books and music while hiking or on an airplane.

    A little bulky for in-ear use especially if you use them while sleeping. Sound is good but you definitely need to "stuff" into ears for full bass sound.

    Sony did a great job with these ear buds. They look bulky but feel weightless.

    These earbuds have good bass, great for listening to music. However, they can be uncomfortable with your head leaning on pilllow or laying down. I would recommend depending on what you plan to use them for.

    I bought these because they were in the same price range as the JBL's that I usually used, and wanted to try something different. The sound quality is a bit too bass heavy and the bulky ear buds don't like to stay in my ears. I like them better than Skullcandy.

    I bought 2 pair of these and the wires (I'm assuming it was the wires) shorted out on both pairs in less than a year. The 90-degree jack is very bulky also. I replaced my last pair with some AKG Y20U's and am much happier with them.

    Man technology has changed since the 90's. I used to wear bulky headphones that couldn't produce as much bass and overall noise that these buds can do. Impressive.

    These earbuds are larger than the pair they are replacing. They feel a bit bulky but not too heavy. They do have a great sound, though.

    Good headphones and mic for the money

    I bought these headphones to use with my playstation 4 and they work just fine. I didn't want to spend a lot of money and ending up paying less than $20.00 for these and they serve my purposes well. The mic has decent quality as well as the headphones themselves. They are a little bulky and feel loose in my ears but that's because I don't want to use the larger ear bud size that would completely drown out every noise around me when I have the volume way up.

    These earbuds sound better than ones costing much more. Yeah, they are big and a bit bulky, would not recommend them for joggers but if you just want to relax and listen to music these are what you are looking for. @@@@@@@@ pro tip: If you turn up the volume loud enough they are all noise cancelling. @@@@@@@

    I bought these for my wife as a replacement and so far she loves them. She uses them at night to listen to her music or to listen to her shows that she watches on her iPadl. The sound is pretty clear, even though deep bass is not necessarily the best. Her only complaint is that they are pretty bulky and hurt her ear somewhat when she tries to rest her head on the side.

    I have had several headphones that did not hold up after daily usage. The ear cushions are comfortable and the cord does not tangle easily. I sleep with my headphones in and they are a little bulky when trying to lie on my side. Overall, very good headphones
