Pros: Great Bass Extention, Amazing Sound for Sub-$15 Headphone
Cons: Microphonic, Bass Bleed
I bought these as a replacement for my lost CX 300's, which IMO, were pretty good for the price I paid. These $10 earbuds quickly surpassed my memories of my CX 300's--they sound amazing for $10, and amazing, period. When I listen to these, they sound like they're worth easily 3 or 4 times the price.
The bass is very prevalent in these. For a lot of my music, that's a good thing but the few times I've ventured out of electric and rock genres the sound comes out kinda muddy. They definitely have a really mainstream signature - the bass is boomy, the mids are clear, but the highs are recessed. On a side note, getting a good seal is crucial with these. I replaced the stock tips with Comply's and wow, it really did sound different.
The cables are slightly microphonic, but the cable itself is really strong and doesn't tangle that bad. Overall though, it's a really good deal at $10.
