I'd been using the earphones which came with my Iphone 3G between and a small portable DAB radio but had become increasingly fed up as the fell out of my ears.

I wasn't particularly bothered about getting earphones with a mic. as I rarely ever used them when making or taking calls on the phone. That widened my options considerably when looking for an alternative set.

I scanned the large selection Amazon had within my budget, paying attention to the reviews and settled upon these.

So how do they perform then?

Well there's good and bad in there thus far in the three or four weeks usage I've had with them.

The good bits first. I saved a couple of quid by going for blue coloured earphones and they do look pretty smart.

They've met my primary objective well in that I've had no problems whatsoever with them falling out of my ears and though some have commented otherwise I've found the length of the cable to be ample for my needs.

I've also found the noise reduction works fairly and whether by accident or design they seem to tangle much, much less than my old Iphone headphones.

The iffy bits now. Perhaps its just my ears adjusting but first impressions were that they didn't give as good as sound as my previous Iphone headphones did. That's not to say they aren't good, just I think not quite as good as delivering the sound quality the old pair did.

For the first few days I was also quite disturbed to feel the thump, thump, thump of my footseps when walking reverberating through the earphones. Over time this is something I've stopped consciously hearing though if you happen to be listening to spoken word rather than music you can out of the blue notice the thump, thump, thump noise.

A minor grumble when I first opened the box was that I had hoped there may have been a clip to attach the earphones cable to my jacket. There was none although in fairness none was advertised. I found that a necessity with the old pair where without one would stick, tangle and drag the earphones out of your ear. But the lack of tangling and the length of the cable means it's not really been an issue.

All things considered I'm happy enough given what was a relatively meagre sum paid in comparison to some sets out there. Several reviews warn of a limited lifespan so we'll see how long we get out of them but thus far I've been happy enough with them.

I've had to replace my old headphones and chose these ones based on reviews I read here. I normally go for more expensive headphones because good sound quality is important to me and I frequently travel on noisy transport (e.g. planes, and I also work on a boat) so I wanted headphones that would reduce external noise. These headphones don't disappoint. The sound quality is very good with a well-developed bass, which is usually missing from headphones of this price. The ear buds are also very comfortable when you find the correct size - it's well worth taking the five minutes to try the three different sizes to get the full potential from the headphones. The longer cable length is also very welcome because it allows me to trail the headphones through my clothes if necessary, e.g. when I'm out running. I also like that I had the choice of colours because I love pink. ;)

I'd fully recommend these headphones. They're very good and the price is even better!

I originally bought these to replace my broken, fake Sennheiser CX400II's. After spending hours of research trying to find which ones were the best for me,(I tried Beats but they didn't sound very good) I settled on these EP-630s. Personally, I prefer the white color to a friend's black ones, and also wanted to differentiate between them. While I'm not an audiophile, the bass sounds good, and the sound is crystal clear and can go very loud. I usually keep the volume on my computer below 10 when using these headphones.

I've had these before on the Zen Touch 2 media player from creative, they are fine for everyday use, without being too tinny.
Audophiles im sure will find issues with them, but for me they are great, they sound good and isolate external noise quite well.

Best sounding earphones in that price range I've ever bought. They look nice as well.

I love my pink earphones which are more cheerful and pretty than my black ones of the same make. They're comfortable to wear, beautifully designed, and do their job with grace and efficiency.

Work well, sound great and last a long time if you protect them from the bottom of your bag (in a make-up/pencil case).
