Went from a cheap $15 pair of earbuds to these. Amazing upgrade. They fit well and have three options for the little rubber in ear fittings and two options for the outer ear supports. They passively block sound pretty well and with the active noise cancelling they do a great job. The sound is rich and bass is excellent but I'm no audiophile. I can tell you that they are a huge upgrade from my cheapo earbuds. The little in-line lithium battery is light and not obtrusive. The cord is on the longer side. The hardware, including the 3.5mm plug, is aluminum and rugged but I wouldn't expect the cables to tolerate much abuse. They come with a little felt pouch to keep them in to keep them safe.
Amazing! I absolutely love these earbuds! First off the packing was top notch and it came with the earbuds, a splitter, extra pads, and a carrying case! I really love the noise canceling feature and the additional mute button that lowers the volume is a very nice feature! These may become my new favorite pair of earbuds! I would highly recommend them.
Like at least one other reviewer, I also own a set of the high-end Bose noise cancelling headphones. They're my standard for great music listening and I used to lug them around for air travel until I became a carry-on-only type of passenger and needed more space for my normal luggage.I absolutely echo the sentiments of the other reviewers who found these noise-cancelling earbuds to be exceptional: great sound, excellent bass response for music, good noise cancelling function, and a good fit for my ears.In addition, I'd like to add that the portability in size is a key attribute. I may no longer have room to carry my Bose while traveling, but definitely have room for these. I also use my earbuds for phone calls (something the Bose can't do) and find the audio both ways is as good or better than anything other handsets, headsets, or Bluetooth devices I've used.I've been impressed with Taotronics for some time now and have used a lot of their other products. They have a good combination of design sense and customer service that has kept me coming back to their products. Thanks Taotronics, this is another great product.
