the best in all aspects
Hello, I am spare with 5 stars so these must be special. They are. I have had several pair over the years. I've even paid for the Hello, I am spare with 5 stars so these must be special. They are. I have had several pair over the years. I've even paid for the H3 of Bang and Olufsen and keep them around for their special use. The sound quality is the closest to real that I have experienced in head phones, ear buds. This is just my opinion. I am a classical musician and I listen critically for a living. I listen to everything from Acid Rock to the sound of the ocean. These don't take a lot of power. Totally in ear ear phones have the drawback of transferring the movement of the cord into the ear canal as does physical movement (the worst being running or even walking). These will block out outside noise only if they are turned up. But if you crank them up you'll only hear music. I leave these in my ears from the time I get up till I go to bed, or almost every waking hour - except for the sound of music you don't notice them on you. They are super comfortable. I like to have music on all the time and these allow me to have my music on and carry on discussions, conversations and be aware of my surroundings with my music playing at top quality even at low volume. When I use these I feel music coming from the space I'm in rather than from a sound proof box. These cut out the middle man in bringing music to your senses. You get realist sound, remain in this world and so comfortable that you don't know you have things on your ears. The mic is great. My phone callers can tell and say they do hear me clearer. The cost? you get a 3 year guaranty so that evens it out a lot. 5 solid Stars …

The Best Headset
I have purchased many headsets trying to find the perfect one for me. I prefer using a wired headset instead of a bluetooth becau I have purchased many headsets trying to find the perfect one for me. I prefer using a wired headset instead of a bluetooth because of the clarity. This is my 2nd pair of the B&O headset with a microphone.
The first pair I purchased was over 7 years ago. I guess I beat them up a bit and they served me well. I have now purchased the B&O Earset 3i. I LOVE being able to hear in both ears comfortably and clearly. For me this headset is amazing and I will continue to use this headset again and again, they fit my ears very well, I do not constantly need to adjust them. Music also sounds great.
In my opinion, B&O is a very good, well made product. You get what you pay for, ....quality. …

very nice earphone w/tight controlled base
This is my 1st pair of B&O and coming from a Sennheiser earphone, I am surprise to find how detail the sound quality of 3i has bee This is my 1st pair of B&O and coming from a Sennheiser earphone, I am surprise to find how detail the sound quality of 3i has been. Initially the mid-range sound a bit suppressed and base too light, then the sound quality start to change after 40 hours of burn-in. The triple is very nice, the mid-range is rich with detail and the base is well controlled and not on the heavy side. This is to compare with not just the Sennheiser but my other Audio-technica earphone as well (the latter is very bright and detail, especially the vocal which is almost intoxicating). However there are 2 points I would like B&O to consider in future models, firstly the L-shape plug-in (much more easy for our iPhone) and secondly the cord where the mic resides have a comparatively shorter length (instead of a Y-split in the middle giving equal length on both side) so it can hang over one's neck at ease. To sum things up, very satisfying purchase indeed. …

I do understand there is a challenge in producing bass good enough in such physically non-invasive design compared to in-ear, but B&O should know better. There is definitively a big market for the people that do not want to isolate their hearing from sounds outside, at least on the streets this is quite dangerous and on the other hand we want to have as best music experience as possible, but EarSet 3i are far from reaching a good compromise here.
I returned headphones to the Apple Store, excellent service as always. …

Excellent Headphones (when you get the proper alignment)
Strong bass, excellent mid ranges and crisp highs. Bought my first pair in 2005 and had them till they were lost in a move in 2012 Strong bass, excellent mid ranges and crisp highs. Bought my first pair in 2005 and had them till they were lost in a move in 2012. Have gone through a dozen attempts to get that sound quality - including some Bose that proved inadequate - at a cheaper price. The Klipch S4is came close. Now I've bitten the bullet and picked some up in Bangkok at a higher price than here BUT it's good to have quality sound again.
The placement in the ear is critical. If it's not set right you get little to no bass and it sounds tiny. Tweak, tweak tweak. Don't give up till you find the sweet spot for your ears. The 3-way adjustable buds allow for a wide range of placement. Try to get the bud facing almost flat into the ear. When you get it... you'll know why people really like these. …

Is it possible to use these Headphones with Glasses?
- Asked by Sheila H
- Dec 9, 2013
I've been wearing glasses most of my life, and I've been rotating around the sun for 40+ years. I ow I've been wearing glasses most of my life, and I've been rotating around the sun for 40+ years. I own these, and they're amazing. If it wasn't for the wire, you truly forget you're wearing these. Amazing to talk on the phone, and NO you don't need to hold the mic up to your mouth to do so. The ear bud expands on that vertical shaft, and the ear hook goes over your ear. Between the two, you can custom fit how the ear bud sits right over your earhole.... glasses or not (and trust me, I own several pair)... never once had any issues. …

Are these sweat resistant for workouts?

I use these for running all the time; just finished a half marathon and all the training that entail I use these for running all the time; just finished a half marathon and all the training that entails during the summer. I have had them for a year or so, and they are going strong, I don't think they are intended for running, but they are holding up extremely well. I love these earphones. I have very small ears and I have never found an earbud type set that works for me running. These are incredibly comfortable, adjustable and the sound is great, I am getting a second pair to out side as these are definitely a keeper!!! When I purchased them, I thought they were very pricey, but I am so pleased with this purchase. I would highly recommend them. (Only flaw is the little cord clip you can attach to your shirt falls off a lot, so I just took it off, and the headphones are still fine for running without it. …
