    I do enjoy these ones but I keep having the problem of the little rubber bits falling off, my husband's black pair don't seem to do it as often but that might just be my fault to be honest.

    These earbuds have good, clear sound for music as well as phone calls on my android phone. The rubber earbuds are a little uncomfortable, though.

    Constantly had to readjust during workouts. Would fall out while running due to the 1inch or so of plastic that covers the wires that come directly out of the ear bud. Ear bud would rotate, plastic ends would contact my ear then ear bud would fall out. Might work for some, but definitely not for me. Went back to cheaper sony ear buds. What extra bass? It's a marketing joke and over priced.

    The plastic on the headphone hurt my ears. I know, the squishy part goes in your ear, but the pushed out plastic rubs on my ear the entire time I have these in. The sound quality was good for the price, but the pain was unbearable. Would recommend if your ears aren't as small as mine I guess...

    Pro - the highs and lows of these ear buds. Cons - The size, shape and material of these lead me to believe they will break if you aren't careful with them. They did not come with a case. At $39.99 they might not be worth it if you are rough with them

    If you're a bass head on a budget then buy these

    For the price they sound amazing. Construction is plastic which is a downside for me but not a big deal. They went through the wash and survived! The bass really packs a punch too! If you're a bass head on a budget get these!

    Really Wanted to Like Them But They TOO Painful!

    I am a huge Sony fan so when my Sony earbuds broke the last week of October, I searched far and wide for a great pair of earbuds that were not only great in price but also great sounding! Read so many online interviews and looked at so many different earbuds. These Sony earbuds had great bass and the mic seemed to be very clear on a phone call but my ears would hurt even just after half an hour of listening to music! It wasn't the silicone earbuds and I tried switching them up. It was the plastic earbud itself that was causing the pain in my ears, probably due to the size. I really wanted to like them but ended up returning them because of the unbearable pain.

    Great Sound and Pretty Good In-ear Fitting.

    These ear buds have great sound and the bass is fantastic. The quality on the wires is also excellent and has a really nice feel. The only gripe I have is the plastic buds that fit in your ear. I wish it contoured into your ear so that it would stay in place better. Only an issue when you are exercising intensely. Overall great buy.

    They are alright

    The sound quality is great. The cord is longer than average and that got annoying at times. The cord got a tangled a bit but not too often. I wish it had a volume adjuster button. After about 6 months they broke. Twice when I was wearing them the rubber earbud comfort thing actually stuck in my ear when I pulled the plastic earbud out of my ear and that was really weird and uncomfortable.
