This item had been sold out or off shelf.
First off, let me say, whoever designed the packaging of the earbuds, is a genius. They come in a box that looks like something james bomd would receive before heading out on some covert mission. As for as functionality goes, there are a few small differences from my other earbuds, that really make a huge impact.
The shape of the earbud itself is actually curved to the shape of your outer ear canal, which i don't know how I lived without. I have extremely sensitive ears from having multiple inner ear surgeries as a child, and I have always only been able to wear earbuds rather than over the ear headphones for no more than about 3--45 min. With these though, I can use them for at least an hour, which doesn't sound like a big difference, but for me, it's the difference between running another mile with music. =)
Another huge perk is having the controls on the cord, rather than having to fumble around for my ipod suddenly when I need to pause my music, or when I need to change the song to something more upbeat.
After using these new earbuds, I actually just threw away my old ones. The cord on these is so much softer, and my other ones the cord had started to get hard and not very flexible so it stuck out alot. Plus I got use to how these rest in my ear and curve naturally outward, that when I tried using my old one afterwards, they just felt rough and not ergonomic at all.
These are AMAZING earbuds, and I HIGHLY recommend everyone try them if you're still using standard earbuds. Everything about them is better than any other set I've owned, from the earpieces, to the cord, to the controls. A+ in my book, I'm so glad I found these!
I changed the eartip to a triple flange piece that provides better noise blocking for my ear type, they were not included with the package, but, I had some available. These buds sound above average and feel great. The quality is first rate so far.
At this price they are a great buy!
I love these earbuds, They are comfortable and the sound is amazing. it even blocks out the noisy people in my office. I will be buying again.
These headphone sound great. I bought these for my husband. They came nicely packaged in a cool black box that exuded quality. They look really cool!! I currently have an ear infection, so I could not personally listen, but my husband immediately hooked them up to his phone and tried them. From the smile on his face, he was so happy. He said the base is amazing and the music sound is super clear. I bought these to replace the standard issue white headphones that came with his iPhone and he said they sound way better.
A sampler set of headphones came with these headphones to test compare the sound. Don't bother with those. They even feel cheap. We have an old iPad we keep around for the little kids to play games. We are going to throw those test headphones in a drawer for the kids to use when they lose their good headphone and come crying to us to buy them more. Haha.
Anyway, don't delay. Get yourself a set of these. The price is awesome and they sound great. They came in 2 days with Amazon Prime and according to my husband sound better than any corded headphones we have tried yet.
I will update if my review changes after we use them for a while, but so far, we LOVE them.
