2.0 out of 5 stars Review, 23 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Creative EP-830 Noise Isolating Earphones (Black) (Electronics)
In my opinion I was extremely disappointed with these. I've never tryed in-ear headphones before, so I thought I'd give them a go...one word: Muddy! Yes they have bass, and yes they have some highs, but my god they sound muddy. I actually thought they were broken when I first tryed them. Pretty much all guitar and snare sounds are just combined into one middle frequency that sounds terrible...also cancelling out some of the vocals too. They wire also picks up every god damn vibration within a 2foot radius of it. So if your walking, be assured that the only beat you'll be hearing is that of your own feet on the concrete.

So if you're looking for ear-phones that you only use while not moving, and not really too bothered how they sound (or just want a lot of bass) then these would be fine. But if you love music, and want to get the best sound out of your ear-phones, then you really should consider buying a different set. My suggestion would be a nice pair of Shure in-ear headphones, more expensive, but you'll definately get more bang for your buck.

Don't believe the hype, I have owned most of the Shure earphone line up including the SE530 and felt that these were really poor performers - a complete waste of money with the middle section unnaturally boosted and requiring a portable pocket amp to stop the highs saturating and sounding clipped. The best earphones, in my experience, by far are the Ultimate ears triple fi pro - but really, save you money and avoid all of these rip off earphones where you certainly DO NOT get good "bang for your buck" or pound and buy a pair of Koss porta pros which are almost as good as the tripple fis with a £235 saving. Even the creative EP-630 are getting there and are by far the best in there price bracket. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY because of pretentious buffoons (Sorry Lambert, that was not at all directed at you I'm just piggybacking on your review)!
