Not Good Enough,
This review is from: Creative EP-830 Noise Isolating Earphones (Black) (Electronics)
Taking the EP-830's out of the box I was immediately impressed with the build quality of these earphones. I liked the straight gold plated plug, the left and right phones of equal length and the quality tangle free cord. All was looking good. And then I plugged them in and played them. End of good news, hello bad news. I'm by no means a base head. I played my favourite artist (Eva Cassidy) to try them out, and what a let down. The EP830's have a very poor base response and quite a pronounced trebble. Even turning my MP3 player's EQ base to maximum and the trebble to minimum did not produce a good sound. I found whilst experimenting with them that the larger the rubber ear tip you use, the better base response you get. But even with the best equaliser settings and the largest of the 3 sizes of rubber tip, they're still not good enough. I had them for two days and I've already discarded them as a waste of money.

You're not pushing them far enough into your ears. The entirety of the rubber tips should be inside

I'd agree. I'd also say that earphones of this type require a bit of 'bedding in' to get the best out of them. Listen to them for a week or so to give them time to wear in and they should sound a lot better.
Don't give up on them yet!

I agree with the reviewer, these are A W F U L!! I just spent £9.99 on a pair of JVC Marshmallow earbuds from Amazon which are excellent. My Sennheiser PX-100's only cost £17 from Amazon and they are awesome. These Creatives are worthless!

that is the point....these earphones need not only a bit of bedding in but 'burning' in as well. The sound balances up and smooths out with a bit of use. Mind U.....if U do give up on them straight away U will never find this out lol.
