Wow. I hate ear buds. So, I got a pair of skull candy Icon 2's for snowboarding in. They rock for that, but for just listening to music on my computer they suck. So, I got these. They rock. They have excellent sound. They can pump out the bass, but also have great treble as well. Well rounded sound. The Cord length in the description is a little off... its like 18 inches and a 3 foot extension, not 11.5 ft extension. BUT THESE TOTALLY BLOW AWAY ALL OTHER HEADPHONES FOR THE PRICE!!
