Best Buy Review by sfca
Very good budget earbud headset
I have a few pairs of these headphones in various places: in my car, office, bedroom, living room, and home office. These are a very good set of headphones for the price (I got mine on sale for under 10 dollars).
The rubber buds help keep these in my ears, although these run a bit on the smaller side. I usually stick with the medium gels, but these are on the loose end of fit. Becaues I don't wear these to work out or run, it is not a big deal. I wear them when I am sitting or stationary, and they stay on when I occasionally pace around.
The sound is decent. On their own they sound good enough. Don't expect to get the same sound as B&O or Sennheiser or even Bose and you will be very satisfied. I run these with Fiio E07K and these really shine. Total sound all around is great. However, I did break them in the first night so I'm not sure if the burn-in helped (this headphone burn-in is somewhat controversial; there are those who swear it works and then there are those who think it is snake-oil). However, these sound great on their own, and have to run them straight to my iPhone if I want to use the mic for calls.
The mic works well enough when indoors or in a car, but I've had people complain that there is too much "other noise" when I am outside and it is a bit windy. For example, I've used these when I had to troubleshoot a server and I was on a call for 45 minutes, and the tech on the other side did not know I was on a headset because the sound was clear.
Overall, this is a very good cheap earbud headset. I won't buy them at MSRP/Full price, but I will snag a couple when they go on sale (especially under ten bucks).
At 20 dollars, I would say these are very good. At less than 10 dollars, I will have to bump these up to an excellent rating.
