    Could be great but....

    • Written by from Cardiff by the Sea

    Sound quality and comfort is very good but only if you stay perfectly still all the time! Try to turn your head, walk or much worse run and you will hear the loud noise of the cord moving around right in your ear which is extremely annoying to say the least. After one walk on the beach, they are going back to the store.

    Problems with microphone echoing

    • Written by from Vancouver

    The sound performance of these headphones was great, but I also wanted the functionality of the microphone for phone calls - I conduct much of my business on the go. A number of times I was told that the caller on the other end of the conversation could hear an echo. I replaced the original set that I purchased and was still told the same thing.

    I'm not quite sure why this is happening but I have to return these headphones, the echo issue cannot be tolerated. Unfortunate, the sound quality is pretty good through the earphones.

    Don't waste your money!

    These headphones worked well for a couple of months, but then the right side ear bud ceased to function. I thought for $50 that I might get more then a couple of months use...

    Questionable Quality

    • Written by from Mountain View

    That was quick...

    It took less than three weeks under light-to-medium usage to render the left speaker inaudible. The root cause seems to be a disconnection at the site of the left ear, probably due to defective soldering. While walking, the left channel just faded away to silence. It just happened about 15 minutes ago, so my rage is fresh. Poking at the left phone made it come back to life but stayed dead afterward.

    Aside from that, they sound great even without using a headphone amplifier. Great earphones for portable media (as long as they don't die).

    Good sound, bad longevity

    • Written by from London

    So the sound on these earbuds is very good actually, great bass and treble.

    The problem is the earpieces disconnect very often even with careful usage.

    I'm now on my 5th pair, I wear them each day for maybe two hours. The longest I have had a pair without issue is 5 months, the shortest, 3 months. Luckily RHA replace them each time as their customer service is great, but it is abit of a joke they are in effect disposable headphones that last 3 months when they cost £40-50 quid.

    Very uncomfortable

    • Written by from Chula Vista

    I bought this headphones based in some comments about the sound of RHA and the 3 years warranty (what said a lot about the confident in their own product) But for me the cord it's to long (I'm 1.8 m) I had to put in mi jean bag like 25 cms of cord and I felt very uncomfortable the in my ear, even I tried the different pairs of pads. I give them 2 stars because they have good sound quality (but I never tried the mic in a phone call). Fortunately Apple changed me them so I bought and old know (some Sony or the Apple I would recommend for this range of price)
