Pros: Sound quality, Price, Solid Built.

Cons: Highs

Ok, this is my first review and I'm going to try to make this as simple as possible and keep it short. About a week ago, I received this pair of headphones. I've read some extremely good feedback on other sites and I though, why not? I managed to get a pair online that were on sale (0.7 dollars cheaper, how good is that?!). I received them last week, so I've been able to test them for a while, and this is my conclusion: 




(I would love to put a picture right here, but apparently my account doesn't have permission to do so?) 


The packing was very good, not only from the seller, but also from Awei. It included the headphones, 3 different size pairs of ear tips (including the one that's already on), a clip on and a small bag. Pretty good for 9 dollars. I can also mention that the quality of the accessories were good.



(It should be a picture here too, do you see the pattern?)


My English is not describe-the-headphones-from-china-with-a-bit-odd-design good, so I unfortunately have to skip that. Sorry. 

The headphones feel very solid. I'm no material master, and the headphones are most likely made in plastic, but they actually don't feel like that. The material feels a bit cold and is not at all easily bent like plastic. It feels like some sort of metal. But then again, I don't know anything about that. The cable is flat and does not tangle easy at all, and when it does, it's very easy to make it straight again. Big plus. 




These are my first in-ear headphones, so of course they feel a bit uncomfortable in my ears. But I guess that's something that every other in-ear would do too, so nothing to complain about in here.  


Sound Quality: 

(Pretend that there are really good looking headphones here)


And now to the important part, the sound quality. All feedback a read before the purchase actually had a point.The sound quality of these headphones were extremely good for that price. But first, lets get rid of the one con I could find about the sound: I feel like the highs are not to good, or, they are not as good as the mids and lows. It could be disturbing, but easily overlooked with that price. 

The sound of the headphones is very high. I usually play my music around the volume 50-70% with my Apple earbuds on my iPhone, but with these phones, I'll settle with 30-40%.  I don't see this as a problem at all, I actually think it's better. The sound quality is very pleasing. I can differ all the different instruments and it is just a very clear sound. The lack of highs does not at all bother me when the lows and mids are so good. And yes, they are actually so good. It was a surprise to me, but it's true. They could be compared with some of the more expensive headphones in the mid-low area.




I'm very happy with the purchase of these headphones. They are a real bargain. I'll probably use them for a while, either until they break, or until a but a new pair. The sound quality is very good for the price and I really recommend them to others. And once again, sorry for the no-pictures problem..





All awei models i have had have great SQ for price, but they break within first week......
I bought some of their ear tips on eBay for, get this, $0.06 cdn. I like the tips (though there are much better ones out there but not at that price), so I'll definitely try these suckers out in the future. Also, you probably can't post pictures because your new here and haven't made enough posts. I had the same problem.
