Creative EP630 In-Ear Noise Reduction EP-630 Earphone $4.51 - Free Shipping

Fake...How do I know? Because I have the same damn problem! I had a pair of ep-630's for more than a year...and for the price! They rocked!! But I saw a guy selling ep-630's he bought in bulk on ebay for like ten bucks...couldn't go wrong right? Well, my original pair that I had for a year finally croaked (right ear shorted out at the way to fix) sooooo, I figured I'd just open up the new ones and be fine.

THEY SUUUUUUUCK!!!!! It's like going from $30 dollar low-fi aweful! The SQ of the immotations is god awful. They go from a semi-well rounded low-fi to this echo-ey mess of soundstage with no bass and no treble.

Save yourself the time and frustration. Buy the real thing...spend the extra 25 and you will be very happy. They make a great upgrade from the standard bundled mp3 IEM' least if you don't get the immotations!
Hope this helps you out!!

It looks exactly the same as mine except the packaging so it's hard to say, it's been a few years since it was on sale for 30 for me so I would think that 10 dollars for it at a discount place is not a stretch given the amount of cheapo IEM competition out there now (I walked into radioshack the other day and was surprised at how many they were selling), but yeah I wouldn't trust it for 5 ...
