Hype Comfort Plus Earphones
Waste of Money.. Unless You Don't Care for Quality
I saw a cheap pair of earbuds and I was cheering in my head. I couldn't believe I found a small pair of earbuds that SEEMED to be perfect! My old pair broke on me a week before and I needed a new pair, but I was tight on money. I saw these and I got 'em rang up instantly, only to be greatly disappointed later when I got home. Sound quality is horrible. The "left" and "right" sides are all mixed up (it plays the sounds on the left or the right, and vise versa), quality is very bad, and worst of all, the "left" earbud isn't as powerful as the "right" one! That's what truly annoyed me, because there's nothing worse than having one earbud softer than the other. I even tested to make sure it was my ears but it was the bud's problem, not my hearing. If you could give a care less about quality, then go ahead, waste a few bucks on these. But people like me, who want great sound quality and not have them break after a few weeks, they want good pairs that're around $10-$15, not these earbuds. Just don't even look at them, honestly, they aren't worth it. And to anyone who was considering getting these, your welcome for this accurate review.
The earbuds themselves fit well in my ears, and were sturdy. The packaging tube it came in was really sturdy too. Note: Unlike most earbuds, these do not come with extra tips on them. You can use most earbud tips on it though.
They work sorta ok for video games. Voice acting sounds ok, but music sounds terrible. The sound for everything feels... hollow. Only way I can describe it.
I wouldn't suggested getting them unless you need a cheap pair of earbuds - fast. Even then, you could get a better pair of earbuds for $10-$15.
Best earbuds I own!
I bought the earbuds several years ago. I think they are great! I use them for my mp 3 and my cell phone. I cannot hear noise around me when I am using them.
Great earbuds for the 5$ cost!- USE EQUALIZER
Being an avid music listener, I understand where the complaints are coming from. However, there is a reason these are $5 earbuds. They are comfortable and fit well in my ears, although they do not come with the extra earbud tips, so make sure you have your size. As for the sound quality, the key is using your equalizer to your advantage. My computer has a sound system which allows me to customize the equalizer for all sounds, not just Itunes. Play around with it and find out what works best. With the perfect settings, these earbuds are a bang for your buck.
I never knew music could sound this terrible...
Truly the definition of a waste. Luckily, I bought this with my rewards points so it wasn't a 100% loss. If you are looking for earbuds to just throw around, don't choose these. There is little treble, no bass, no mids, or any depth. I feel like I'm listening to one of those aluminum home made speakers but with less power and everything else. Don't buy these. I wouldn't pay any money for this unless if you simply are looking for a sound output. Not worth the money if you are an audiophile or casual music listener. You will never know what real music sounds like with these buds.
there super comfy in your ears and dont hurt them. They give great sound but the sound does not escape your ears!
Fragile earphones with poor sound quality
I bought these earphones about 2-3 weeks ago but stopped working soon after. This isn't a product that will last you very long, even though I made sure to take care of them. The wiring that connects to the plug was easily exposed because the cord wasn't sealed properly. Damage is unavoidable this way so I think that's what caused my earphones to malfunction so soon. Also, the sound quality is not very good, and I had to keep the volume very low in order to prevent static from appearing. These problems were apparent right out of the packaging. The SUBS earphones are way better alternative for the same price.
Worst Item Ever
Bought if and 2 days later stopped working, cant say that the quality of sound was to exciting either.
Waste of points!!
I used my reward points to get two sets of these. One set stopped working after a week, the other after two weeks. I bought them for my boys so they would not have to fight over the noise level of each other's games. Very disappointed.
Worst Quality ever!!!
The Quality of sound is horrible!!! I decided to test them against various Chinese $1.50 dollar store earphones and surprisingly enough the cheap no brand earphones were way better...Don't buy this rip off please!!!!!!
