The overall sound quality of the EP-630 is slightly better than the EP-830. The EP-630 produces crisper highs and cleaner mids; however, the EP-830 is much stronger on the low-end. I adjusted my EQ to filter the 80 Hz and 250 Hz bands, but the EP-830 still sounded a hair muddy.
The rubber grommets and wires on the EP-830 are more substantial and should resist normal usage much better than the EP-630. However, The EP-830 do sport a heavier ear bud, which is less comfortable and, with gravity, tend to come loose when during activity (gym). This issue is paramount because breaking the seal in the ear canal greatly diminishes the sound quality. I find myself constantly pushing in the EP-830 buds. I never had this problem with the EP-630. They were light and remained sealed and in-place during my entire workout.
The aesthetics of the EP-830 are definitely cooler. They utilize a vented driver and top off the look with silver detail. The EP-630 are very generic looking.
Overall, the EP-630 and EP-830 ear buds are awesome at their price points of $30 and $50, respectively. If you're not too active, have bigger ear canals (i.e. can use the larger silicone seals), and enjoy deeper base, the EP-830 are right for you. Otherwise, the EP-630 are a better value.
I don't care what the audiophiles say about this , but I compared them to many other headphones including the beats in-ear phones. This one is by far the loudest of them, the best noise isolator too. As for the sound quality, it's very clear and not muffled and it offers deep bass.
Losing these was like losing a close personal friend and I can't wait to have them again.
After having the new pair for a while I have to say I'm rather disappointed, my last pair lasted 5 years and these didn't even make it 6 months before doing the same thing. I do enjoy the sound quality but am sick and tired of the wires that seem to stick to everything and they also make noise every time they bump into your shirt while running.
This pair ended in the exact same way as the others, wires broke internal at the base by the 3.5mm jack. I always pull gently by the plug and never by the chord. As stated, my last pair of these went 5 years before breaking and these didn't make it to year one with the exact same care. Will not be purchasing again due to decreased quality.
From this experience I entered 1-star, not about the product, but about the vendor. Their customer service was unacceptable in this case. Based on this experience, I will not buy any Creative product in the future.
Followup: I notified Amazon about Creative's failure to honor their warranty; Amazon offered to take the product back. Kudos to Amazon for the right attitude about customer service.
