This review is from: Creative EP-830 Noise Isolating Earphones (Black) (Electronics)
I have be using the excellent Sennheiser CX300s for over a year now, but wanted a 2nd pair for the office and spotted these. At £9.99 inc. P&P (vs. £17.99 for the Senns) I took a chance. What a good decission.

For those familliar with the CX300s or Creative's own (very similar) EP 630s, the 830s are slightly more crisp. The top end is more detailed and the bass, while less 'fat', is better articulated. Sound isolation is excellent (like both the others). Overall I find them slightly less fatiguing than the CX300s.

Of course the most important thing with all in-ear is the fit. The seal must be air tight, which initially can feel a little uncomfortable, but stick with it any your patience will be rewarded. Indeed I found the fit gets better after a day or two when the buds get lightly coated with ear wax (eugh!!).

The only downside is that physical contact noise is transmitted up the cable into the buds, which can be a bit irritating. I therefore wouldn't recommend these during activity e.g. the gym etc.

Overall, these are highly recommended. Great sound insulation and very good sound. Plug into your iPod or PC (try Last FM) and leave the office behind.

Hook the wires over your ears and have the cable pointing up in your era - no more cable rattle - viola! (Yes I know that's not the right spelling - that's the point of the joke.)
