Good, but not for audiophiles, 31 Jan. 2013
These are a nice pair of headphones. The build quality is adequate, but not high-end (compared to Shure se-215 for example they feel fragile). The fit is very good at least for me. The mic is excellent, though the plastic piece for the volume controls and mic is kind of big and plasticky. The sound isolation is good enough for commuting and walking around in the city. The sound itself isn't awful but it's not for audiophiles or even audiophile wannabes like me. For casual listening when out and about it's OK, but if you start paying attention to what you are listening to, the sound feels too bassy and a bit muddy. Again it's not bad (and coming from lower end earbuds they will be a very pleasant surprise), but don't expect to get more in the sound department than you are paying for.
All in all I like them for casual listening and using them with my iphone/ipad: they feel natural in the ear, they keep out enough noise, the aesthetics are distinct and they're good for answering calls/skyping. But the sound quality is just well... casual.
