    You're all wrong... These are good.

    I bought a pair of these about five years ago on recommendation from a friend after complaining about another pair of headphones that had perished after limited use.

    Since then I have had two more pairs (I lost a pair and bought a replacement, and HMV had reduced them to £30 once, so I couldn't resist)... None have experienced any build quality faults after extensive use (my in-line remote on a £130 pair of Bose is temperamental)... They dismantle easily for a deep clean...

    All Apple users will appreciate the simple understated look, the excellent compact carry case and the hardy in-line remote...

    Now to address the well-documented flaws:
    - replacement buds... I got some from the Regent Street Apple Store for free... I don't know if that was a lucky exception or something that other users have not done.
    - lack of bass... I agree with the other user - PUSH THEM IN - get the snuggest fit buds and push them to create a seal with the ear... And this helps block out the external noise...
    - clarity... for most users paying £60 I guess that these will be for your iPod/iPhone whilst on the bus/tube and not for studio-listening... I get plenty of clarity for in-ear headphones and they compare well to similarly priced Sennheiser and Sony sets that I have bought... I agree with another reviewer that the only time I notice extra 'parts' to a song is when using higher-end on-earphones in a quiet environment...

    [ I personally would recommend Bose earphones if you live near a store as they will give you unlimited replacement buds and will replace the headphones under a two-year warranty... When out of warranty they heavily discount a new pair to replace them... ]

    Make your mind up for yourselves but if you get a chance to try these then do...
