They're ear buds - i go through them like bags of oreos. but these are cheap, play music, and i find them to be a little bassier than a traditional pair of earbuds. "but i dont want a ton of bass!" you might exclaim. If you have ever gotten a free pair of cheap sub par earbuds you know that's not true. These aren't overly bassy buds but they help fill out the sound and avoid the dreaded "nothing but mids" feeling a dollar store pair will give you. plus they stay in well enough. these'll do.
These are pretty impressive, I've got to say. I've had my fair share of cheap earbuds, but these are by far the best, in terms of sound quality. No complaints as far as comfort or anything like that. I haven't had them too long, so my only concern at this point is longevity, but they seem decently made. If you want 90% of the performance of high dollar earbuds for 10% of the price, I don't think you can do any better than these.
The bass is a little bit heavy, but this would probably only be a concern at high volumes. I bought these primarily to use at work while listening to MP3s and Pandora, so they are fine for me. I wish the cord was a little longer, but it's the same length as just about any other earbud cords.
Just a couple more neutral comments..
These aren't marked R and L. I guess it doesn't really matter, so I didn't count that against the score, but it is a bit odd, so I thought I'd mention that in case it's important to you...
With a *proper seal* the bass is very deep and loud, maybe a little sloppy, but I can still hear other details in my music and very minimal outside noise, which is where these shine. They fit very well and comfortably, and they perform well with many different types of music as well as great on a laptop, desktop, as well as my old 2nd gen ipod nano. Don't know how people can say these suck or have no bass, I think they are rather good for ten bucks. They also pass my Ludacris "how low can you go" test because even many expensive headphones cannot reproduce the lowest bass note in this song as well as these can. Listening to pandora internet radio is great too, which is important to me because there is no equalizer setting that can be changed on pandora. At this price, the sound is a deal. Not sure how well the reliability will be, but even if they only last 4 months, it is worth a shot. I'll keep you posted if they break soon- I read on their website that skullcandy will replace them...
