I've used these earphones for years, and love them. They're a decent price, sound quality and bass to my tastes (it varies for everyone), very comfortable (especially when paired with Inairs memory foam buds), and they last better than many others I've tried. This is my third pair - the first pair wore out eventually, and the 2nd pair had an accident involving a cat and yanking the cord on a doorknob.

Obviously they're not as good as high-end headphones priced in the hundreds, but they're not aimed at that kind of listening market. They're compact and convenient and cheap to replace. If you're looking for a pair of headphones that live in your pocket or bag for travelling then these are excellent.

The only criticism I have is that the jack is straight and will wear out eventually from being bent - they really could do with having the ones that are at a 90 degree angle for longevity.

I like to listen to the radio on going to bed but in order not to disturb the wife I use a Roberts fm Sports radio and these earphones. They are small enough not to cause discomfort if I turn my ear to the pillow and because they are sealed in the ear canal they do not leak any noise to disturb the wife. Update: I've bought about five of these over the years and I've noticed that they are not lasting as long as they used to, usually one side goes dead in less than a year. So although they are very compact, I'm going to try some other makes.

I usually use studio headphones as am a bit of a hobbyist sound designer and producer. However they were also just my general use headphones and as I tend to just watch a lot of youtube while my housemate watches tv, that meant I'd be wearing them many hours of the day! As comfortable as they are, obviously you end up with sore ears and head etc. Besides, since hitting the dreaded 30 the hair on my crown seems to be going on holiday more and more :( So....wanted some earphones instead.
Well, of course the sound won't compare to what I am used to, however it is a decent output. Does have quite a nice low end considering. I am no seasoned earphone user but have had others hand me cheap ones in the past. These are much better, not so tinny. So for the price I'd recommend them, maybe it's just me but anything over £50 for earphones seems unecessary, up to £200+ is ridiculous! If that's your budget get some super high end studio headphones. If I get more earphones in the furture though I'd be looking for these or the updated model :)

I like Creative's products - they often combine good sound with good value and these are no exception. Good, solid bass and overall audio performance in a very compact package - great for travelling! Good ear fit (and a choice of bud sizes), the one downside is just how thin and potentially delicate the cables are... We'll see how they last - I hope they do, as the sound is really good. I think these are on a par with my Sennheiser CX 3.00 buds at half the price, but the Sennheiser's may well have the edge on robustness...

I'm very pleased with these earphones.

Good quality at a very decent price.

Good fit: very comfortable in my ears and seem to stay put without any problems.

Good sound: true to the description, I do get a much more satisfying bass sound from these earphones than several other types I've tried and used.

Practical: the wires are long enough for all practical purposes without being _too_ long, and are nice and thin/lightweight so they don't get in the way, don't drag, and wrap up easily and tidily.

Excellent earphones that I'm very satisfied with.

All in all,

...if you are in the market for cheap ear-buds with quality sound these little beauties will fill your head with a decent sound.

There is not much to add and not much on the market to offer more for less expenditure.

The only downside is the length of the lead if could shorter without compromising the quality.

And most players can be clipped well above the waistband at cost of odd bulges in strange places.

If you want to hear what your 1pod is capable of ditch the £0.50p standard items and try a set of these your ears will love you for ever.


6 years on and they are still the best earbuds I have owned.

No I do not wear them everyday, but I wore them 15 hours a day for 7 days consecutive when I was in hospital.

The noise cancelling worked fine in a busy hospital ward and coupled with my ageing Cowon D3 MP3 played hours and hours of BBC Podcasts with the Cowon in random mode and speech equalizer, I had my own radio station with my choice of programmes.

I will continue to support Creative's EP-630 earbud 'phones. At the price there is much competition but I believe these are the best sounding units in this price bracket.

Cheap and good enough to provide all the pleasures of your music or spoken word and not likely to cause lost sleep if you loose them.

Too fragile for juniors and not likely to survive the rough and tumble of the daily commute, but when you can take time to chill and enjoy the delights of Just a Minute, Fortunately or News Quiz you won't be sorry to have spent so little to get so much return.

Buy some.

I bought these 6 years ago, and for some reason, I never really bothered with them and just stuck them in the drawer. Since then I have just never really used them due to circumstances, but now I've bought myself a small tablet, I thought it would be nice to go out and listen to some sounds.... Now I am writing a review to say how cr@p these are! Long delay in testing them I know (lol), but now that I wanted to take them seriously again, I have to say they are nothing like they should have been. What happened to the great sounds and bass these types of ear phones used to produce? Lots of people saying theirs might be fake, and I have to say that could be likely. Creative produce great speaker systems, so surely they should've created great ear phones. You've been warned. I'll go back to Sony ear-phones I think.

I am a very light sleeper and so listen to white noise in bed to block out any street noises that may jolt me out of my slumber. I have been looking for a pair of earphones that are comfortable enough to wear in bed and these fit the bill, I can barely feel them when I'm asleep or awake and my ears are never sore with them in. The sound quality is great. However, they used to be only £9.99. Now they are double the price and they often last for only a few months (I have purchased at least 10 pairs in the last few years!) so I think they are pretty pricey considering their short shelf life. Great while they last though!

I'm not going to make much comment on the range of sound that you get from these headphone. You can hear your music perfectly well through them, I have no complaints and would rate them as good if not better than the ones that apple ship with the ipod shuffle. They cancel noise very well, preserving yours and everyone elses ears from high volumes that you need with none cancelling buds. My only moan is that when you have them in it's hard to be certain whether you're breathing really is that loud. Apart from that these are outstanding, almost bombproof headphones, both buds stil work and I've accidently machine washed mine twice this year with no loss in performance, shame that cant be said about the ipod they were attached to. If you need replacement headphones and you aren't an audiophile buy these, you won't be disappointed.

I read some great reviews about these headphones before I bought them. Those reviews, and previous experience with Creative products convinced me to spend the money.

At first, I couldn't get comfortable with them - I think this design takes a bit of getting used to anyway - but I didn't even get the sound I was hoping for. No bass to speak of. What a disappointment!

Then I read a tip, maybe even among these reviews, about pulling the top of your ear up as you insert the earphone. Sounded silly, but I tried it and it worked. The earphones end up being quite tight in your ear, and the bass improves. I've noticed that once they're in place, if you angle them so they direct the sound a little further towards the back of your ear, the bass increases to the point where it's almost too much. What I'm saying is that you can adjust the bass according to how you position them.

To me the sound is now very well-rounded, easy to listen to over long periods (and I don't have them loud) and the effort of letting them "bed in" has been rewarded. Just don't eat crisps while you're wearing them...
