Does anyone over here own a pair? Do you dislike them? How was the experience?
I used to own them just for kicks, 'cause my friend was selling them for $50.
Needless to say I hated them, but since you asked for its positive points, I'll try my best.
1) It's shiny
2) There's a reputation on them so you'll be assured street cred
3) Pretty okay isolation
4) It's shiny
5) Uhhh... it's... glossy.
I can't really comment on the good things about its sound, because I would even rather listen to my iBuds (when worn properly as in this guide: proper seal on iBuds). Really. The bass lacks so much detail that I felt like my ears were being plugged up by mud, mids were distant to the point of being hollow and treble lacks any sparkle or fizz that makes it any more enjoyable. Although, they do sound better than the not-properly-worn iBuds, which is why so many people would pay premium for it and its By Dr. Dre "assurance". I believe even Tyll thought the iBuds were better.
Nope, I would never buy it even if I had the money.
