Looks are everything here
They look cool, but I must say I went from a marginally more expensive set of S0ny ear buds that sounded WAY crisper and clearer, to these. The s0nys were way better sounding, but my left one broke and I bought these on recommendation from a friend. Big mistake, as the sound quality is so muddy. They also broke really shortly after buying them and I did not even abuse them or use them much. DO NOT BUY THESE IF YOU LIKE GOOD SOUND QUALITY, but BUY THEM IF YOU LIKE MUDDY BASS. I guess for 29.00 they are O.K., at best.
