Pros: Solid Noise Cancellation for in-ear, Good Battery Life, Can Be Used Without N/C on, Sound pretty good, Fine Volume Control
Cons: Oddly Shaped, Battery Box Not in the Best Spot, Weak Y-Split
At this point I have had these earbuds for a bit over three years, and they are still serving me well. In the first year the y-split to each bud began to actually split, but this may have been slightly my fault. Still a flimsy cable. But these actually sound pretty good, and cancel out a good amount of background noise. Fans and stuff like that it does pretty well. In public places they perform adequately. They take one triple A battery that lasts long enough (can't really say how long maybe 30 or so hours maybe more?). The fine tuning volume wheel is fantastic, I use these to fall asleep, and the volume adjustment along with the cancellation make them great for that. I initially thought these were a bit of a gimmick but I have grown to love them. If they were to break, I would buy these or a similar product for replacement in a heartbeat. They may seem uncomfortable at first, but you get used to it. For their current price of $40 it would be hard to find a decent competitor.
