My experience: Good fit, isolation and comfort, very poor quality.
on 4 December 2014
I bought these to replace the standard ear buds on a pair of SoundMAGIC E10 earphones.
I commute to and from work most days on the Tube and wanted better isolation to enjoy podcasts, music etc.
If I was rating these little fellas on their fit and ability to cut out external sound (I'd estimate a reduction of around 80%), I'd give them a good 4 stars.
Unfortunately, despite only wearing them for 1-2 hours a day, 3-4 times a week, each pair has managed to split within a few weeks. I'm now on my last pair (there are 3 pairs in a pack) and one is showing signs of splitting - a sure sign that they only have a few wears left before I need to replace them again.
I've used similar priced buds by Shure (on Shure earphones) and they offered me slightly better isolation and lasted much, much longer.
Maybe I've been unlucky this time around, but having paid almost 70% of the cost of the earphones for these buds and having to replace them after just 4 months, I can't recommend them.
