I gave it 4 stars because they are comfortable and you hardly notice them in your ear. Some people complain about the ear conforming wire, but I like how it "manages" the cable around the ear. The sound is pretty good too. I'm no audio expert so I can only say that it seems to hit the highs and lows. The bass isn't rumbling or anything. The different sizes for the ear pieces seemed to not fit my ears. They also seem to be "too light". The ear pieces seem like they would crush with the littlest of force. It also seems like a lot of sound escapes outside the headset, similar to very cheap earbuds (everyone can hear the music). It may be due to the thin, lightweight plastic they're made of. Although, for the price. I would expect these types of drawbacks.
