    Expected so much better!

    To start on a positive note, the in-ear plugs fit very well. That's pretty much where it ends. Listening to music isn't enjoyable because there is hardly any bass present. This causes all sounds to sound very tinny. For the price I paid for these headphones, I expected a lot better than what I got. Hopefully this gets improved upon in future iterations.

    Had high hopes

    Bought these headphones with high hopes but was slightly let down. The headphones have a good build and never slipped out of my ear unlike some other reviews I have read. The sound quality is pretty poor however, especially if you listen to bass heavy genres of music. The headphone lack any real bass to make listening to that type of music enjoyable.

    Pasy more than $40 for these & you'll be mad. Did the research, read below:

    +6/10 - SOUND QUALITY (Only slightly better than standard apple headphones)
    +10/10 - LOOKS: (Looks like standard apple headphones, only nicer)
    +8/10 - PACKAGING: (looks good but the ear bud holder not holding the earbuds knocked off 2 points)
    +2/10 - PRICE: (if standard apple headphones cost $30 - at most - these should be priced at $40 tops. Samsung earbuds w/ same concept/specs/design sell for no more than $5)

    No wonder the item is being discontinued. I bought my mine at an apple store for $99, The sound quality over the complimentary iPhone headphones are better, however, not $99 worth better. Not surprised they're being discontinued. I lost the silicon buds (L, M, S, sized) that came in a convenient carrying capsule, unfortunately the capsule doesn't click-to-shut -or as my friend commented "doesn't stay shut). You just have to hope the earbud carrying capsule stays idle while in your purse or the bugs will fall, rendering your expensive new headphones useless. I would recommend buying a little baggy to keep silicon ear buds in bc apple offers no options for replacements (go to amazon for replacement though).

    My first negative review, I hate doing it but what a waste of money.

    Very Disappointed

    These headphones were very disappointing. The medium earbuds feel too small, whilst the large way too big. They never seem to fill your ear properly, completely ruining the sound cancelling feature of the earbuds. There doesn't seem to be any bass to them either. Would recommend sticking to the more established headphone brands than wasting your money on these.

    Lost the silicon bud and it seems no replacement is available

    After a few months of use one silicon bud went missing. Checked Q&A here and it seems you can not replace them. Yes I know it comes with replacement but they are not really replacements, they are different sizes and the other sizes just do not work for me: the bud keeps falling off.

    The sound did not seem good to me. I even had problems understanding people in a call. I like more the sounds of the original headphones.

    There is a "noise reduction effect". I was not aware of this but it works great. Enough to leave my noise reduction big headphones behind and listen to podcast in public transport.
