Okay, so to start with the positive- these are absolutely adorable! But that's their best feature. It's probably just me, but they don't seem to fit very well but that doesn't surprise me because earphones never do for me. As for the sound, they are SO loud. I mean like I had to turn my iPod to the lowest volume and they were still loud loud. They're definitely great for roadtrips though, when you're constantly on a noisy highway and are sick of your dad singing to the radio. Over all they're pretty good if you turn your volume way down.
