Ultimate Ears 200vi Noise-Isolating Headset comfortable music and calls. Designed by Ultimate Ears, this sweet-sounding headset fits your ears even if they're small and includes on-cord controls with an integrated microphone.
Pros - Isolation, 3 button apple remote, slim headphone jack, good accessories, comfort
Cons - Design is a bit plain, earphones are made out of all plastic, no cable joiner, no strain reliefs
Introduction - I found these at Wal-Mart (surprisingly), and they were selling for 20 bucks, so i could not turn them down.
Design & Build - The design of these earphones are a bit plain. The earpieces have this two-tone, color of matte black and gloss gray. The cable feels very soft and pretty thick. It is not overly thick, and it does not feel cheap to me. The ear tip design is really clever, i think, because once you install the right ear tip, isolation and comfort, for me, is outstanding! I have never been more happy with an earphone's isolation and comfort.
Ergonomics - When you put these earphones in your ear, the earpieces stick out... luckily, they can be pressed into the ear canal and that problem will be solved. I do not recommend that however because it may cause discomfort. The included tip selection ranges from extra small to extra large. The medium size tips are already on when you purchase the earphones.
Bass: It does not have that much impact, however, it does blend into the mids rather well, and i really haven't noticed any of the instruments sounding drowned out by the bass. It is exactly where it needs to be.
Midrange: The mids are actually pretty clear. Vocals have a nice filling factor to them, and the bass and treble do not harm them in any way.
Treble: This region is emphasized, but only by a tiny bit. You can hear drums and cymbals very well. It does not sound harsh in any way, so i feel that the treble is well controlled.
Overall - With the price that i paid for these, $20, i could recommend these for the rest of my life. These are a bargain! If you are not an audiophile and you just want a nice sounding earphone, without paying a high amount of money, check these out. These do have some flaws, and there are better sounding products out there, but you will have to pay a high amount of money to get them. Thanks for checking out this review!
