These headphones look amazing although it would have been better had they been snag free wire, The sound is fairly good for in ear headphones but hurt my ear so have passed them on and the person who I gave them to with new ear buds also are having problems, Maybe a design defect

Got these free with a mag subscription, have a clear sound works well with both jazz, pop and heavy rock, to get good bass you do need to have a tight fit, does come with some rubber bits, also comes with a carry pouch. They work fine with my iphone 3gs and ipod classic. very good headphones well worth £30 and even better free.

I've had these headphones now for 18 months with a lot of use. They're now packing in, something has come loose. For all I know, 18 months is decent in today's disposable world. I can't grumble too much, because I do admit I have abused them quite a bit. But some people may not find that an acceptable length of time for their earphones to last.

I've never had a problem with the sound quality of these earphones. Music is clear and rich, and I'm certainly impressed with the price. They're also very comfortable in-ear, so thumbs up there.

However, there are a couple of annoying quirks.

1) The wires being tapped or brushing against clothing produces a loud echo in the earphones themselves. This is understandably annoying and distracting. I solved it by looping the wire up around the back of my ears and over again. This reduced the problem significantly. Sometimes the wire can get pulled a bit tight, leading to soreness after prolonged periods.

2) The built in volume control is far too easy to catch on things resulting in a sudden loss of volume (or a sudden increase, if you actually use it for volume control). It's not a feature I generally like in headphones anyway, so I may be prone to annoyance over an unwanted feature, but it's still a downside in my book.

In conclusion, they're certainly a usable pair of headphones with decent sound quality and comfort, but quirks mean I can only give it three stars. I certainly wouldn't buy another set, though will be looking at Sennheiser for my next set after a positive experience with previous earphones from their range.

These look a bit 90's to me, but they work really well. I wanted them for everyday travel on the tube and they're great. Clear, fit snuggly and never fall out. Also they are great for use when riding a bike as the wind can block out the sound and make clarity difficult but not with these bad boys!

I've had these headphones now for a while and am very, very pleased with them. They give great quality sound to anything you throw at them. There is a slight flaw in design though, as when you shuffle about too much somehow this transfers to what your listening to. I've never understood why. But in my opinion it does not impede my listening. I've used them nearly every day since I got them and they haven't let me down once. That in my opinion deserves my recommendation.
