    "These are truly professional headphones. You see a lot of headphones that have professional prices, but what you're paying for is the name brand in the end. If you want a sound that delivers with the features that a professional would need, these headphones come at an amazing price and will outperform what most would consider the best. "

    "I am not familiar with this brand, and other user reviews do not lead me to believe this is the highest quality of product in this category. This is also a single earbud, so the applications for this type of headphone are more limited. I'd prefer more standard headphones or earbuds than this product."

    "Chic Tangle Free Arts Earbud Headphones with Microphone are a cute and colorful alternative to the classic apple white earbuds that many are used to. The wires on these headphones are so thick and flat that they're impossible to tangle. One thing that may be questionable about chicBuds is that their sound and volume quality may not be up to par for serious music listeners. "

    "I really needed some new wired headphones. My sister told me about Polk Audio AM6617-A UltraFocus headphones. Wow, these are awesome! They are noise-cancelling headphones, which is just what I wanted. They really do block out noise! I live in a very noisy neighborhood with a lot of traffic and these work perfectly for blocking all that out. I love the comfort of them. They are really comfortable on my head. They are also really affordable. I highly recommend these to people who love music and want good noise-cancelling headphones."

    "Very nice little portable earbuds that offer amazing bass (a little at the expense of treble), and they offer a nice wire but course make sure you wind it up properly before storing. As all things, this could short it out. They fit snugly and are attractive and don't get that gross ear smell, thanks to the material."

    "These are in-ear headphones and, at 20 bucks, a tremendous bargain. You're not going to get professional quality sound from these (I didn't, at least). But I did get a really high-quality pair of earphones that deliver solid bass. And they come with their own traveling case!"

    The in-ear DC950 has a bass that goes deeper than deep and crisp clean trebles that hit higher than you would expect. A great feature of in-ear headphones is their ability to passively noise isolate, giving you the ability to listen to your music at much lower and safer volumes.

    "These headphones aren't anything special in terms of sound quality, but they get the job done at a fair price. They are great for my bus commute, especially when I'm running late and have to throw them into my backpack without wrapping the cord since they are less prone to tangling. The do a pretty good job of blocking out some noise as well."

    "These Klipsch Rugged's weren't as comfortable as I thought they'd be. I run and when headphones fall out, I can't get in a good routine. I find these to fall out when I don't place them well in my ear. Good color and the volume control is a nice add on. I would rather go with a higher end model because I wasn't too impressed with the depth of the sound. "
