Pros: Sound quality is spot on compared to many other earbuds, bass is just right and isn't overwhelming.

Cons: Fits my ears well, but took some adjustment for my boyfriend

For those looking to trade up from headphones provided with your portable audio device, this is the perfect gateway drug to begin appreciating Sennheiser products.  You'll instantly notice a significant increase in the audio quality compared to what your music previously sounded like.   These earbuds are durable and good for everyday use.
