This review is from: Yamaha EPH-100 Stereo In-Ear Earphones iPod / iPhone / iPad (Personal Computers)
At the lower price, under £100 from a supplier in Birmingham, these are outstanding value. Sound quality judged with a variety of classical music recordings is very noticeably better than with other in-ear phones i've tried. I particularly loved the sound of one of my favourite violinists with these phones because of the detail audible in the sound of a fine instrument and a virtuoso performer. In-ear phones are never going to sound as good on-ear phones, but these are brilliant in-ear ones.
Providing five rather than just three ear bud sizes seems an excellent idea though in my case the medium ones already fitted are fine and fit better than any other earbuds I've used. The design also makes insertion considerably easier than the fiddling and ear-pulling which seems necessary with other earbuds to get a half-decent fit. They come with a high quality long extension lead and jack adaptor and an excellent carrying case, though a simple gadget to wind the lead round would be a good addition.
A pity they don't have a microphone and controls to use with a mobile phone. OK, they're for audiophiles, but why not let iPhone users have the benefit? This doesn't stop me from giving five stars because they're so good otherwise.
