Comfey with good sound, 7 Jun. 2013
Firstly I must say that I initially had issues with this item however the seller has worked ever so hard to rectify the problem so order with confidence. The sound quality I am sure is not the best but it really is not far off that of my BOSE headphones AND you must consider that both stereo channels are running into a single earbud! The cord length is spot on if you are using it for sports (I was forever spooling up excess chord on my old headphones) and the reflectives wrapped into the fabric of the chord really stands out (I cycle and it is very visible to cars approaching from behind if you have it running down your back to your rear jersey pockets). The build quality seems good also. Now the issue I had was a small hole on the bottom of the headphone which caused wind noise at higher speeds, this is simple to rectify in two ways firstly the cheap-o way; a bit of electricians tape to cover the hole did the trick for the entirety of a 24 hour mountain bike race (I must also say that the headphone fit so well that I was not constantly having to push it back in but I appreciate that this would be very personal to the individual and how well one of the three supplied buds fit) secondly you could use the BuDLoKs which Far End Gear also make (which I am now using) which are designed to stop the ear bud dropping out but also cover the hole! BudLoks - Earphone Sport Grips I have been assured that the hole in the bottom of the ear bud is being re-assessed so hopefully this wont be an issue in the future and would be no problem if you are using it for running, walking even cycling at a sedate pace and with the electricians tape mod (or BuDLoks) would be suitable for anything you can throw at it!
