Block out sound but a big flaw,
This review is from: Creative EP-630 Noise Isolating Earphones - Black (Electronics)
These headphones are really good- great sound quality, good fitting earpieces, and as they say, blocks out other sounds.
However, flcik the wire and it's like a bass drum going. NOT good for an MP3 as if you're moving about and it rubs on your clothes you can hear a backdrop of "bwobwobwob" to the music, im sure you know what noise im trying to get across. Great for static use but i really dont advise this for someone who uses their MP3 while playing sports or even walking for that matter.

I agree with your comments. I only listen to music when I'm out walking and when the cable rubs against my clothes, I hear the sound you described. Had to ditch the earphones barely a week after buying them.

I had the same thing! Gave me a headache, shame.

You need to wrap the wire over the top of your ear rather than letting it hang down loose. You'll find you'll cut out most of the unwanted rumble transmitted through the wires because there will only be a couple of inches of wire between the top of your ear and the ear bud itself. As these are completely circular and not assymetrical ear buds this is easy to do without swapping left to right, right to left as you have to with, say, the JVC Explosives that I own. I am pretty sure wearing them this way lengthens they life span - they are not expensive and mine being used for running are still Ok three years on.

I know what you mean
I tend to have this problem with a lot of Earphones with the same price range as this

Very true review. Only thing i might add is that for me they broke after few months (replacement broke after another few months). However, my brother is using them for more than a year now, no hassle.

Thanks! I bought these many earphones ago and vaguely remember exactly this: good sound but flawed. I couldn't remember what the problem was until this review so thanks! Onto the next one...
