Still good, but quality reduced since 2011 – SQ-78V Stylish In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Volume Control (3.5mm Jack/130CM-Cable) Reviews

Pros:
Good noise isolation Nice rubber earcaps, more comfortable and squidgier than other brands Sound quality is great for this price range
Cons:
I bought these to replace a broken pair that I ran over in the car. The old incarnation (2010/2011) had a really nice textured rubbery-grip cable that resisted tangling. The 2012 version has normal nasty extruded plastic that bends much more easily and will probably break quicker. It also gets tangled more easily
Other:
Bottomline:
Still a good buy at $3.70, but a shame that they sacrificed cable/build quality. Sound reproduction still as good as it was
