Good for daily use
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love the Medis! They come in handy when i'm at the gym, when im listening to music on my ipod , when im using the elliptical at the gym or simply working out. They're also great, if and when your hands are full and you can't have your mobile device on hand. Sound quality is on point and mute option is excellent. Highly recommend it for a daily use with simple and stylish look.
I bought a pair for my Mom and a pair for my Dad. They both love them and use them frequently.
Perfect for under my helmet
When I'm skating I can rock these underneath my helmet, they don't dig into my head or fall out of my ears. Bottom line: these are the most comfortable in-ear headphones I have ever put on. I have little ears, Apple's in-ear headphones hurt so bad and have sound quality anywhere near the Medis!
I work out...hard, and I sweat, these are the only headphones that actually stayed in my ears! Before scooping the Medis I was working with Apple's iPhone 5 In-Ear headphones which never stayed in my ears. Medis come with different size adapters to fit all ear sizes, so comfy. Grrrreat for athletes who don't want to sacrifice sound quality when demanding performance.
Superb Scandinavian Design!
I purchased these as a gift for a friend and he could not stop talking about them, so I had to take a listen for myself! The design in itself was what I liked, but the sound quality is also amazing! These never fall out of my ears when I'm doing cardio. Also, these are the first pair of headphones that actually fit my ears, as the modern design is engineered to fit your ear a bit differently than regular earbuds. My new favs.

Definitely the most secure set of bud phones I've had. They come with 4 different sets of ear wedges to get the fit dialed. While the fit is good the sound quality on these is definitely not studio quality. You never get a great seal between your ear and the bud. This might not be a bad thing if you are doing something where you would like to hear your surroundings. I also found that if you have anything pushing in on the buds they can get a bit uncomfortable like a goggle strap. All things considered these are some great headphones but I wouldn't count on them being the answer to all of your personal audio quandaries.
Tune in, and drop in!

These sound really good and clear for ear buds (as somebody who has also been shopping for studio recording headphones recently).They are pretty balanced/passive so you won't get any huge bass boost or highlighting of certain frequencies (a.k.a. if you listen to rap or (dear god not) dubstep these might not punch your ear with bass and drum enough).
The icing on the cake for me was the partially-open back design. This allows you to listen to your music with clarity and without feeling like you're isolated in your own sound bubble. I've also heard from audio engineering friends that it's less damaging to your hearing.
Before I got these, I read some reviews that said the cord can be a little bit fragile but haven't had any problems after the first couple of months. I'm trying to treat the cord well to keep the tunes pumping through it.
Growing to like them
At first they hurt my right ear. I tried all the sizes and the one that fit the best still hurt a little. If I pull the bud out a little after putting them in my ear it doesn't get as irritated. The sound is pretty good, which is why I gave them 4 stars. They look really cool and stay in my ears when running.
Cool design and sound clarity aint' too bad...
My UrbanEars are by far the best headphones I have ever used. Great sound quality and great fit. Stays in your ear no matter what you're doing.
hated it. the music botton just dont work with almost anything
So do these headphones have a mic in the...
So do these headphones have a mic in the wire?
They do indeed.
Hard for me to visualize how these fit in...
Hard for me to visualize how these fit in the ear. Does anyone have a picture? (Or a thousand-word explanation?)
they will fit in your ear just like a standard earbud
They fit pretty nicely. It's a different fit though. For me they stayed in better than just the squishy ear bud ones. I've had mine for awhile but the wire is finally messing up and the sound is going out in the right bud. But otherwise all my friends asked me where I got them and wanted a pair. So they look pretty legit.
I just bought a pair and I do have to say they do look pretty tight. They're nice and sturdy. They also do a pretty good job at blocking out outside noise. The sound quality is good for the price, but not the best. But as of now, I'm a happy camper with em.
