Pros: Surprisingly durable, simple classy design, inexpensive, better than your average iBud.
Cons: Not particularly amazing SQ, bass is hardly noticable, foamies fall off easily, accessories not entirely practical.
I bought these a few years ago and I must say that I'm impressed how long they have lasted considering the price and how many cheap earbuds I've short-circuited over the years. I like the simple black/silver streak design and whatever they used to keep the cables connected in the enclosures is amazing as I literally run into work, shove my earbuds into my pocket without any care and get on with my day-- I usually have to untangle them after work, but still, they've withstood at least two years of horrible abuse and that is pretty much what I wanted; a durable listenable earbud. 
It may have lived up to its job, but has a few annoying features. The first are the foamies; I put them on snugly, they fall off... I put them on again, they fall off and I lose them somewhere. The same thing happens to the second stock pair, so I steal some foamies from the cheapo buds that came with my cellphone... Of course, I didn't have much luck there either. Sound is much clearer without the foamies and mid-range details shoot up, but bass takes an even greater hit and things can get quite bright sounding depending on the song or player.
The accessories included are a little impractical for the busy person as fitting the earbud's driver fronts into a little rubbery slab, coiling the cable around it and then putting them into a little pleathery/plastic pouch isn't some thing I want to spend the time doing before running onto the work floor.
If you want some cheap durable little bastards that just won't quit, with sound better than your run-of-the-mill iBud, then you could do worse than the MX560s.
