For someone who doesn't know that much about headphones, these ones turned out to be a pretty good set. They are comfortable and have very good sound quality. The ones that are just buds don't stay in my ears and i was looking for a pair that fit over my ears so they wouldn't fall off. These fit the bill perfectly. Very comfortable, however, the only thing I don't like is they are not adjustable.
I gave this a 3 rating only b-c I did not like them. I mainly use my MP3 player to work out with and these gave me a headache. The reason I put I would recommend is b-c I know alot of people who love them. So, its up to you...My husband has been using them and he doesn't seem to mind. The product us hit or miss...
I love these earphones. I had ear buds previously for my Ipod but they would slip out during exercising which was annoying. Having these ear phones has made my workout go much more smoothly and they stay in place. I had no idea such a small change to my exercise regimen would have such a huge impact.
I bought these for working out, but no way would they stay on during anything more than sitting! The ear wraparound part does not stay on my ears, and does not allow ear buds to stay inside of my ear where I can be the only one to hear the music. I tried using them at work and a coworker could hear my music just as loudly as I could. They kept falling off and are just a nuisance.
These earphones are very comfortable to wear, as they do not go into the ear, but rest over the ear. Because of this the low bass does not come through as it would with regular earbuds. Otherwise the sound quality is good in the other ranges. Even when boosting the bass as high as it can go in my MP3 player, it really never sounded very full. These would be great in a work environment where you still need to be able to hear ambient noise, and are comfortable enough that you could wear them all day long without issue. Overall I would recommend them for work wear, or to people who cannot use traditional earbuds.
I bought 2 for my children's Ipods, but they were too big for them. These are for adult use, so my husband decided to try them. He said they're light, comfortable, and adapt to head/ears very well and sound quality is good. After all, the purchase was good. I think I saw similar product at a local store but the price may have been better at Overstock.com.
