Product Description

Neat idea to be able to listen to both stereo channels but just in one ear. Keeping in touch with the rest of the world around. A must for runners and sports people who like their music while training but a responsible way to keep safe by hearing what's going on around them. Great in the office, listen to your iPod and still take a call. Perfect for listening to "spoken word" while flying or in bed. Fits all Apple iPad, iPod, iPhone and most MP3 players

5.0 out of 5 stars First class sound quality for this price 14 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase
I have been looking for a single ear-bud headphone with in-line volume control for my Roberts Sports 995 personal stereo radio for sometime. This product is perfect; it has very good sound quality, sensitive sound adjustment and a lead of just the right length. The ear-bud has a secure and comfortable fit, using standard (replaceable) ear-bud covers. I would recommend this product on the grounds of quality of sound and excellent value.

Have since purchased a Pure Move 2500 DAB/FM which uses the earphones as the aerial. It works just as well as the those coming with the radio, whilst giving the same high quality output.

I'm often awake in the night and find listening to the radio/podcasts/listen-again on an iPod helpful. The problem I have found with conventional earphones is that they tend to be problematic as I favour lying on my side and the pressure of the pillow on the earphone becomes painful after a while. I have tried listening with just one earphone but, owing to most programmes being in stereo, some of the sound is lost. This single earbud has gone some way to getting around that.

Why three stars? Well, the sound quality is pretty poor. It's okay for spoken word but no use for music as there is quite a bit of distortion at certain frequencies. Also, the volume control on the cable is a nuisance, and in my view: redundant.

UPDATE: I've found another minor problem with the design of this product, which is the quality of the cable. Although thin, it is relatively stiff (unlike the soft cord that is on the earphones that come with an iPod). The result of having the stiffer cable is that every movement of the cable is telegraphed into the earpiece - rather like the way sound is transferred between two paper cups with a taught string. Initially I took this noise to be crackling from a loose connection but it can be shown that it's definitely mechanically created.

4.0 out of 5 stars good stuff 24 Jun 2014

took quite a while to arrive (from HK) but excellent quality, handy to have the volume control - only slight gripe is the ear but is quite large but easily changed for a smaller variety

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 30 May 2014
By Drew

The sound quality is great. The volume control on the cord is very useful.
I had one of these single earbud headphones for quite a while and used it extensively. Eventually, it broke, but I think this is because I shoved it into small pockets and purses and damaged the cord. I thought I'd up-grade but the sound quality and comfort of the replacement did not match this earbud so I've bought it again (and I'll be more careful about how I store it).

Not too bad for the money, but volume control a little sharp to the touch as plastic not of great quality. Sound quality average but reasonably acceptable.

4.0 out of 5 stars One ear, two channels 12 Feb 2014
By AndrewL94 VINE VOICE

Having only 30% hearing in one ear, I found I was missing a lot of the sound when using double ear phones with my iPad. This was particularly noticeable with tracks by the Beatles for some reason. In some cases the vocals were missing, in others the drums etc. I didn't want the type with robust glow-in-the-dark cables, I wasn't planning to run anywhere, just listen to my music in bed. This earbud seemd to fit the bill and was relatively cheap (though the postage did bump up the cost).

The thing looks quite flimsy, and I suspect will not last very long. But it really does combine the channels into one earpiece, and as a bonus has a volume control. Initially the bud gave me an ear ache after an hour of listening. But inserting it with minimal pressure achieved a much more comfortable fit.

Of course you lose any real stereo separation - but I didn't have much to begin with. I'm happily listening to 'Lucy in the sky with diamonds', and hearing everything with great clarity. Is it my imagination, or am I even getting some stereo from it?

Overall, very pleased. Four stars.
