You get what you pay for. Poor sound and a bit annoying at times.

I got what I paid for, it's okay.
The key absolute stand-out reason I'm giving this only 3 is because the sound quality is very tinny with almost no bass, compared to my other earbud headphones which cost maybe £10-£15.
The shape of the microphone and button (you can see on the product picture) is like a diamond. This shape catches on the collar / zip of my coat when I'm walking from the station to work, and repeatedly pulls the right earbud out of my ear. A smoother shape might not cause this issue.
There is no volume control on the unit, but there is a microphone and control button. The button controls the music on iPhone with the usual click/double-click/triple-click etc plus hold for Siri. Siri control works okay as long as you don't keep your thumb over the microphone hole when holding the button down! I'm assuming it's okay to answer calls but haven't tried it with the phone yet.
The flat cable doesn't tangle, which is nice. One side effect is it doesn't "pool" in a heap if for example you're sitting at your office desk with the phone next to you - it kind of lays itself out across the desk. Thats fine for me but might annoy some people.
