Right side is a little weak, but that might just take some breaking in. The mids are muddy and the lows are a bit anemic (they seem to over-modulate a bit as well) - hopefully those issues too will improve with time. If I had paid $50 for these I'd probably be disappointed, but for the price I can't complain much. An absolute upgrade over, say, iPhone earbuds in terms of sound (no mic or controls, of course). Also, the microphonics issue isn't gone completely in the new pair... They're not very comfortable but they're fine for short (<2 hours) listening sessions. 

 

Bottom line: they're worthy of their hype on price alone. In the under-$20 category, they're a solid pick. But I don't see them beating more serious options.

If we're talking about surpassing the price, get yourself some KZ EDSE for roughly the same cost.

You will get a HUGE improvement at least with the lows and the build quality ;)

I modded these at week 2 or 3 of ownership with two paperclips and masking tape. Although it is pretty ugly, it is functional and works great, and they stay on my head when I'm on stage. I can monitor bass, drums, keys, guitars, vox and still clearly hear each. 

 

For ~$8, these can't be beat. The only thing close that I like are the Sony MDR earbuds for less than $25. Price point aside, these Monoprice 8320 buds sound better.

 

 

  

 

That's amazing. Definitely trying that with some heat shrink tubing. 

 

Use these daily on the subway/bus ride with slightly modified tips.
