better than a kick in the teeth
For the price and the decent sound quality (the highly touted bass drivers deliver above-average sound, at best), the Titans are what the Smokin' Buds should have been. Cord is actually a little bit too long though--would expect this length from a pair of studio cup headphones, not earbuds.
You could do much worse for headphones though. Not sure if that's a compliment or not.
