  • The mids are very good and the highs are very clear and loud
  • Great mesh cord cable instead of the usual rubber you would expect with earbuds under $20 and you would not find it tangling or cracking due to age or use as most do
  • Although it is cheap it is very attractive and has the outward appearance of expensive earphones
  • Noise isolation is a feature that most users value and this noise isolation is particularly good especially when you look at the price
  • A gold-plated tip eliminates the usual corrosion found with cheap earphones


  • It has a straight tip at the end of the cord, where many users prefer an L-shaped tip

It has a gold-plated 3.5 mm stereo plug that connects almost any device with a 3.5 mm jack. All devices will have better corrosion resistance as well as great connectivity whereas other connectors often have problems when it uses tin-plated and nickel-plated connectors.

Material covered cord:

The cord is sufficient in length and although some users do count the fact that it not a tangle-free designed cord, it is strong and do untangle incredibly easy if stuffed into a pocket. As opposed to thinner and plastic covered cords, this might not have the specific classification of being fully tangle-free design, but it is close enough to being tangle-free with its material covered cord. The standard Y-formation of the cord is equally great in enhancing its ability not to tangle easily.
