I was excited to receive these in the mail very quickly after purchasing them. The design is nice, with the chords being wrapped in a textile of some kind, making it harder to tangle them in your pocket. However, the sound was all treble and no bass unless you pressed the button on the mic, which is supposed to be used for answering/dropping calls or skipping tracks on your mp3 player. And you would need to hold that button down. My cheap Sony ear buds have a much better sound, though no mic. Also, the button did not, as advertised, work in skipping tracks or answering calls. Had to return these, unfortunately. Would rather find a quality pair of buds with a mic that actually work.
