    Big sound-- not for small ears!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    The sound quality is great in these headphones, and I do love the cord material as well as the control on the headphones. MY ONLY PROBLEM: although in the wonderful packaging (presentation is great) provides multiple sizes for optimal fit, the smallest attachment is NOT SMALL ENOUGH. After wearing them for a day, the upper part of my ear where the headphone sat was sore and I could not keep them in for the rest of the evening.

    simply put: if you think your ears may be too small, pass on these and get a different version of UrbanEars design. If you have normal sized ears, THEY ARE WONDERFUL!

    This is the best in-ear headphone that is out.

    • Written by from Irvine

    Well, we've all had various headphones that you stick into your ear... most of them fit uncomfortably, and the shape alone would make me cringe because I hate shoving the rubber cutip-like ends into my ear.

    With this headphone, it is a completely new experience. The thing is, this clicks ONTO your ear - you don't shove it INTO your ear like everything else (including the Apple headphones).

    Besides comfort, the sound is amazing.

    Seriously this headphone beats any in-ear headphone on the market at ANY price. Buy it you will not regret it.

    Best Ear Buds for Working Out

    • Written by from Clawson

    These are the only ear buds I’ve used that don’t fall out when working out. Additionally, the sound is very full and rich. Better sound than any ear buds I’ve used in the past. This is largely due to the bigger driver. The apple remote works great and the cord doesn’t tangle. Highly recommended!

    great comfort and bad sound

    • Written by from Montreal

    They stay in the ears even when moving quite actively.

    They sound very bad. No sound isolation whatsoever.

    I went by the previous comments to decide on purchasing these and was very disappointed at the lack of judgement about sound quality.

    Steep Price

    • Written by from Brampton

    For an average 5 6 adult - my perfect fit is the XL for the ear click.
    If you are around 6 ft - this might be too small for you.

    Design flaws:
    The ear click is soft-sharp edged. Because the inner back of the ear is sensitive where you put it, it is quite painful. Perhaps they should've gone with a more smooth-rounded edge.

    One time I accidentally wore the left earphone to my right vice versa and it felt comfortable. The inner front where the ear click is suppose to be is not sensitive to the edge.

    Moving (pro):
    Stays in ear, I tested this while dancing with a lot of head movement.

    Moving (con):
    It is very light-weight and always feels like it's not on your ear and gives that earphones are about to fall off sensation.

    Sound: Some of us like the volume really high - but this does not have that capacity. The overall music starts to crack. Though if you just lower the volume a tidbit down, it's pretty good.

    Price: Too steep for a flawed design. Perhaps $40 is more fair.

    *Good if you wear glasses, move a lot.

    Bicyclist Review here, read on.

    • Written by from Arlington

    First off, these headphones sound excellent for everything. From music, to phone calls, to games, the sound is superb compared to other headsets.

    On the BICYCLE bit. There's a lot of drag on them in the wind, meaning it creates a little wind tunnel outside your ears when getting up to 7MPH or so. Increase in speed, and the airflow noise increases as well. at 25MPH it's like you have your head out the window of a moving car at 50. Luckily they sound good enough to overpower the airflow noise, but do you really want that? This is my only complaint however. If it weren't for the bicycle, I would have given them a 5, but I ride almost 20 miles a day, which is what I primarily bought them for. As others mentioned, you can hear outside sounds fine, which was my primary concern. I can't have the full ear inserts as I want to hear my surroundings on a bike.

    It's only my first day using them, and the click-fit feels a bit weird, but I know I'll get used to it. The microphone quality is great! one thing I found over trying different headphones with mics, is that some don't have a good quality mic, with noise cancellation. Some headsets if there's any noise outside or wind/airflow (on a bike or running) the person on the other end only hears the wind/noise, and can't hear you. These work just as good as Apple's technology in that category; perfect outgoing audio.

    Packaging is amazing! heh, 6 out of 5 stars on that one. Even a logo sticker that matches the color of your headset. These guys care about what they're doing, or just make it look that way at least, as the info book is outstanding!

    Overall, a great headset, but for the biking it may not cut it just for the airflow noise. I'm going to give it a few days though.
    Anyone have other suggestions for a bicyclist, under $50, hear outside sound, great mic/controls, and comfortable? (I know someones gonna say the Apple earphones at $30). 8)

    Stay in my ears!

    • Written by from Plain City

    This is literally the only headset that I have found that will stay on when I run. I tend to sweat a lot when working out and every other headset I've ever used has gotten out of place during activity. These stay where they are supposed to when you are moving around. The sound quality (particularly the base) could be a little better, but you won't find it any better on a headset that is not in your ear....and those don't stay in place when I'm active so the better sound becomes irrelevant. I highly recommend these. BTW, the clothe cord is a major bonus to keep from being tangled. The mic quality is also very good (I use mine for quite a bit of speech recognition dictation as well). Solid purchase!

    Great for exercising, but break VERY easily...

    • Written by from Halifax

    I bought these headphones mainly for bicycling around town so that I could hear my surroundings. They were great for that! The sound quality wasn't phenomenal but when I'm cruising on my bike I don't particularly care about that. The wind noise was quite loud but once again, not really a huge problem.

    Where I have a BIG problem is that after only using these for a couple months the sound began to cut out intermittently. The problem is that where the cord connects to the device, the string type cord bends so much that it allows the internal wires to bend and break with very little wear and tear. I am very careful about bending the wires too, but when my iphone is in my pocket and I am biking around I can't help it sometimes that my iphone turns sideways in my pocket thus causing stress on the connection.

    If it weren't for this I would have given these headphones 5 stars since they do exactly what they describe, but if they aren't going to last then what's the point? Too bad that these headphones have such a fatal flaw. 2 stars, one for each month that they worked.

    I just ran a full marathon with these headphones, and they felt great the whole way. They are the most comfortable headphones I have ever worn for running! I have recommended these to all my running buddies.

    6 or 7 headphones later....

    • Written by from Upper Montclair

    Finally found a pair that won't fall out or have to hook over my ears. These stay in when I'm running, feel comfortable, and deliver well-rounded sound. Very happy with them so far (3 weeks or so).

    Tinny, washed-out sound

    • Written by from Maplewood

    I bought these because of all the positive reviews. I don't know what others compared these to, but they are possibly the worst-sounding in-ear phones I've ever owned. Worst of all is the exaggerated lower mids. They sound like an old-school landline phone. They also get uncomfortable after a while and are not noise-isolating whatsoever.

    sound great and comfortable!!!

    • Written by from Seattle

    After going through 3 pairs of Apple brand headset, I decided to spend more and try a different product. The sound is great, they are very comfortable, and I don't feel like I shoved something in my ear. The remote mic works great for making phone calls. I love that the cord is made of cloth and not plastic, which seems to make it less prone to tangles and easier to untangle when they do become tangled.

    Ear click rocks!

    • Written by from Edmonton

    All in-ear canal headphones hurt my ears, plus they would pop out if I moved.. These are the most comfortable ear buds I've ever worn, plus the ear click means I've pulled on the cord and shook my head, and they do NOT fall out. They are not noise isolating, but I turn up the volume and it's fine.

    Sound Quality Very Good, Noise Isolation Poor

    • Written by from Mountain View

    Its true, this new way of fitting into your ear is very comfortable. The problem is that like other earbuds that do not actually shove into you ear canal the noise isolation is very poor. I often use earphones in places where I want to tune out all other ambient noise, and these simply do not do the trick. The sound quality is good, though a bit mid heavy. I could never quite get them at a volume that sounded just right and comfortable while at the same time tuning out ambient noise Unfortunately, I'm to going to have to return these for these reason alone.

    Great Headphones

    • Written by from Santa Clarita

    Love the in-ear technology (doesn't come out of my ear when I'm working out) and was pleasantly surprised at the awesome sound quality. Probably best purchase I've made all year (so far...)

    Very Nice

    • Written by from Houston

    I had these for a few days now and am using them hard. They feel good in the ear and can ware them for hours at a time. What I like about them is the click in the ear feature. I had the one that fit in the ear canal and they are nice. But block to much of the out side noise. When walking out side I like to hear what going on around me. These headsets fit that need and unlike the Apple Ear Buds these fit and have full sound.

    Multiple Broken Pairs

    • Written by from New York

    I got these to replace my beloved Apple Earbuds which I would love, until they'd stop working after 6 months or so. I know headphones don't last forever, but at twice the price of Apple Earbuds, I was hoping they'd at least last a year. Well, my first set lost hearing in the left earbud after 4 months. They were under warranty so I asked for a replacement (which they did not make easy since I bought it through Apple), but they did replace them about 2 months later. The new set lost hearing in one of the earphones after a mere 3 months. I'm done. I thought the sound quality was excellent but clearly an unreliable product. It's possible I just got two bad examples, but I'm not going to try again.

    Good Quality

    • Written by from Wasilla

    Overall these headphones are pretty good quality for the price. They come with four different "size pads," so you can fit them for your own comfort. I use the smallest ones and I still feel some discomfort after a few hours. But it's not too bad.
    The sound quality is great. Much better than the standard apple headphones. And I like how the cable is surrounded by fabric to keep it from getting tangled or damaged.
