Hype Comfort Plus Earphones
For a $4.99 pair of earphones in my favorite color I figured why not. I didn't imagine they would last long since the $10-$25 pairs you buy only last about 3 days in my handbag. So imagine my surprise now that I've had these for at least 3 months and they have no only outlasted my handbag, my pockets, and an 8 hour total on a motorcycle ride, but yesterday I pulled them out of the washing machine. Yes, thats right, my Hype earphones literally got put through the WASHING MACHINE and they still work perfectly. Thank you Hype. You made me smile.
I really loved these headphones. They were cheap and had good sound whenever I used them. After 2-3 weeks when ever I plugged them in to my Nintendo 3DS, some sounds (ie. In The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D, you can here some of the music but not some of it and you couldn't hear Link) didn't function unless I plug it in a certain way (not plugging it on the way, and turn the thing yellow metal thingy).
Great earbuds for the 5$ 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.
A Great Product, Often Whined About
Alright, I want to make this clear: The reviews you see about bad quality are because of incorrect use of the product. They're shoving the headphones deep into their ears, and restricting the sound by closing the buds. If you don't bury them deep in your ears, the sound quality is great. Trust me on this. Also.... THESE THINGS ARE REALLY FRICKIN' COMFORTABLE! Best earbuds I've ever had.
Very Good, But Not Very Strong
I personally like the Hype brand Comfort Plus Earphone because they sound good, Feel Good, and look good. My only problem is that when yanked out of the ear by an annoying person, after being yanked out 10 times, They break. I hate people who break my stuff and don't pay for it. ... ... ... These Are A Good pair of earphones and they tolerate SOME abuse. Then they break after a while. It needs stronger wires if a jerk is going to yank at it as hard as they can. Best Earphones Ever. BUY THEM if you need a good cheap pair that is of good quality and is semi-durable.
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.
They are great for their price.
I personally love these earbuds. I love that they have an extra long cord, and comfortable rubber parts for the ear. I have purchased about 6-7 pairs, and every one has been great. One pair wore out, but i was rough on them, so that was my fault.
Great but didn't last long.
I loved these earphone so much, when they broke I shed a tear. They were awesome, though they stopped working after a year. Just one of the earphones wouldn't make any sound, I plugged it into everything to make sure it wasn't my dsi or laptop. Wish they had lasted longer..... Maybe I'll buy some more when I get a chance.
Will last for 5 months
Great price and is fair $5.00 and will last for 5 months. Fair deigns and the maximum it shoul last is 5 months minimum 2 months. Remember their 5 dallars and not 100 dollars so in reality these should last as they should.
I bought it and it worked out really well. UNTIL less than 2 weeks after i bought it, it stopped working correctly. Noise was cut, lyrics were scratchy. Oh it was horrible.
