Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
-Cheap noise isolation earphones. Fit snuggly and reall do a decent job of blocking noisy surroundings (in the train, on the streets, etc.)
Cons:
-Poor build quality. Cable feels as though it could easily be ripped in half by a brief tug.
- Poor sound quality. Sounds very muddy, highs very unclear, bass very uncomfortable. Sounds like a poor live recording done with cheap microphones.
Other:
Have some cheap < 10 EUR Sennheisers that I always assumed were relatively weak but they are worlds better than these.
Bottomline:
Invest a little more money and get something decent. After using these things for 5 minutes I retired them forever. You can't expect much for this price, though.
