I seem to kill headphones and blenders on a regular basis. Headphones appear to get a broken connection at the plug whether it's a right angle or straight plug. Some people say it's a snap to replace the plug with new ends from Radio Shack. I haven't found that to be true and I'm fairly good with tools. These headphones have sturdy cabling and good sound. I agree with the other reviews of this brand that the bass doesn't come out unless you have a seal in your ear with the rubber seals. By having that seal, however, I cannot hear office conversation even though I keep the volume as low as possible to preserve my hearing and still hear the music fully. With other phones, I can always hear when people address me. I have to take these headphones out to hear others. I like the bendable hangar that goes around my ear. I find it difficult to keep buds in my ears comfortably. The hangars aren't so stiff they can't be molded for comfort. Since I have purchased expensive headphones ($50-$60 is expensive to me) to cheap phones, I think these phones are a great value and balance of price and quality sound. I recommend them.
This is the second pair of MEElectronics headphones that i have bought, the first pair being the M9's, and i was just as pleased wit this pair. The bass is there, and all the other tones still come across clear and sharp. Overall, a very good pair of headphones, and well worth the money.
I use these earphones when I travel and waiting in lines. Excellent companion to your laptop, notebook, phone and in-flight.

These are the only earphones that don't hurt my very small ear canals. They stay in well enough during the eliptical portion of my workout (I do have to readjust them to get them to stay), the sound is pretty good, but the comfort level had not been beat by anything else that I have tried.
Despite shipping with 5 or 6 different ear adapters, none of them cancelled out the noise on a recent flight the way my skullcandys did. Over the ear is not for everyone either. Personally I think its cumbersome, and not worth it. Sound quality was average
I use these regularly. Only problem is the rubber pieces will periodically fall off, so make sure not to lose them. I may use some glue to secure them. Angle of earpieces a bit different than my other headphones, but OK. Wiring is very good, so expect to get a few years use out of these.

For a pair of earphones that $$$ I expected more. The wires do not bend correctly around the ears and buds are hard to keep in. I have already went back to my old ear buds.

Very stylish and lots of options - hence the 3 stars. But the main purpose of these is to listen to music, and these earbuds do not deliver a good sound. Of course, that is totally subjective, but if you want something with any kind of bass, these are not for you.
These earphones are good quality, and fairly comfortable, however, the sound quality wasn't that good. Also, for some reason, when I use these with a USB audio adapter ($1 off ****), the sound quality is bad. First, I thought it was the USB audio adapter, however when I plugged in a cheap ($10) headphone, it sounded great! I was surprised, happy about the USB audio, but disappointed with the earphones. It may be some impedance mismatch, but compared to the $10 headphone (with volume control) I expected more. Geoff
Used them for couple hundred hours. Used only the "deep" earbud sleeves, they block ambient noise very well. They look very stylish, quality is very good. They stay in place well - I did 25 mile run with them, no problem. Best deal for the money.
The reviewer that said these had distant muffled sound and don't even come close to his old Bose must either have a defective pair or lost his hearing between the time his old Bose died and when he got these. Seriously, I currently have a pair of Bose In-Ear Headphones that I paid $100 for direct comparison and I got these for $***** and I have to say that these sound better particularly in Bass and overall loudness. The clarity is about equal. However, I don't know about the durability on these as I just got them where I do know that the Bose are extremely durable.
I have very small ears and need tips that work. Not only do these come with the standard 3 sizes in I have seen in the past from other manufacturers, these have graded tips that fit wonderfully and help block out ambient noise. The wires over the ears also can be adjusted/fitted to make a very nice fit. The wire can be over the back or to the front although the back is a little more awkward (hence the 4 stars not 5). I bought a second pair so I will have them as backup.
