Great Sound, Comfortable

These are some of the best earbuds I have had ever, and they are cheap to boot. I got these when my old expensive earbuds kicked the bucket, and I'm really impressed. The sound is just as good and they are really comfortable. I haven't had them long enough to check the quality, but it seems solid. Great earbuds!

Been buying these for the last 3 years

If you are extremely picky about the way your music sounds, you might not like these headphones. If you enjoy having a pair which does what it’s supposed to do. These ones are definitely for you. They might eventually wear off on you (Try put a sealing glue around the ear piece if you are worried it might break) But, I’ve bought these ones repeatedly. Why? Because I’m careless and rough with my headphones so I want something durable and cheap. Despite my rough use these generally last me 3 to 6 months given I don’t throw them in for washing or pull on the cable to unhook it from my laptop/phone/from under my bed. My current pair has been washed twice and my sister owns my old pair, which I thought I lost but I didn’t. And she has used them for a good 8 months now. They are cheap, they have a mic and they play music. Not good for exercising I bet, and definitely not your pair if you want to change music using your headphones. But they do what they are supposed to for under 30 (They also go on sale often and sell for 20ish) And they do come with a 1 year warranty.

I want my money back

ZERO STARS. I bought these to listen to music and for hands-free talking on the phone. I opened the package obviously, and immediately discovered that they don't work well with my phone. The control button on the earbuds are messed up and make my phone go out of whack. I can't dial numbers or maintain a phone call, because the earbuds somehow end my calls. When listening to music, the bass isn't powerful and - again - the earbuds somehow change the songs without me doing anything. I'm very disappointed.

Do not buy!!!!!!

my samsung s5 headphones finally broke because i ripped them apart by accident. Turns out its pretty much impossible to buy the real samsung oem headphones period. I tried 5-7 different headphones and found the sound quality/ mic when talking talking to people was very poor. Bought these and was pleasantly surprised at how clear the mic and sound quality was for calls and music. In less than a month, the left earbud stopped working or would go in and out for no reason. i went online and quickly realised through reviews that this happens with every pair. I have done endless research online and talking to audio specialist and have yet to find a good replacement for original samsung headphones, which were perfect and would only stop working if you legitimately broke them.... sumsung doesn't for some reason, sell them without buying the phone.... they only sell similar lower quality ones which every one seems dont last....

Avoid at all costs

Not great sound. L/R balance is gone after less than 1 month and they now sound like garbage. What an enormous waste of money. I should have known to stay away when they said there were no refunds after the package was opened

Not Recommended

I've been buying these for YEARS and I've always got the same result. The right earbud always, always, stops working within' a few months, more or less. The sound I find differs each time. I have two pairs and I compared the sound. One was more bassy, the other more sharper sounding. They are comfortable in my ears, but very often slip out, and I have to adjust them very often. If you really want to buy a pair of these every few months and don't mind the sound being different each time, then go right on ahead. But otherwise, I do not recommend thees at all.

Not Recommended

One earbud stopped working after about 20 hours of listening while sitting at a desk. These won't last long if you are using them while exercising or anything else that requires movement. The wire moves in and out of the earbuds, there is not a solid connection. I believe that they were designed to fail.

  • from Newmarket, ON

Not worth it

Bought for my son for Christmas. Left side stopped working after less than 4 months of use but he continued using anyways. Tried to exchange but told not after 30 days even though has one year warranty.

  • from Vancouver, BC


If you take good care of them you will have a decent pair of earbuds for a while

  • from Toronto, ON


Adequate but nothing special. No better than other at half the proce.

  • from Sherwood Park, AB

Decent for the price.

Tangles a bit easy, and the wires are thin, but overall a good product for the price.
