i have a pair and absolutely love them. the fit is extremely comfortable, but the compensation for that is isolation is not that great. the bass is extremely good, however after using high quality IEMs like sleek audio sa6 and klipsch image x5, the difference is too noticeable. many here would probably find them muddy and bassy, but i find them extremely warm and fun-toned.

There are better sounding earphones for the money. The Vibes do look good, but sound isn't spectacular. They also have a pretty poor reputation for build quality - I think they may have tried to address the issue on more recent models, but the Vibes used to have a VERY high rate or cables breaking near the jack. Mine only lasted 2 months of light use.

For a similar price you could get the Denon AH-C551. They still look great, and have plenty of bass, but have better overall SQ and build quality than the Vibes.
