Rated 1 out of 10 by iDark 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-$15, not these earbuds. Just don't even look at them, honestly, they aren't worth it. And to anyone who was considering getting these, your welcome for this accurate review.
Rated 2 out of 10 by LV223 Fragile earphones with poor sound quality
I bought these earphones about 2-3 weeks ago but stopped working soon after. This isn't a product that will last you very long, even though I made sure to take care of them. The wiring that connects to the plug was easily exposed because the cord wasn't sealed properly. Damage is unavoidable this way so I think that's what caused my earphones to malfunction so soon. Also, the sound quality is not very good, and I had to keep the volume very low in order to prevent static from appearing. These problems were apparent right out of the packaging. The SUBS earphones are way better alternative for the same price.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Ryanimba Great earbuds for the 5$ 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by SamiiSah Thoroughly Impressed!!
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.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Happyguy1000 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by RobbyD 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.
Rated 3 out of 10 by Shane904 Disappointed
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.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Closp Worst sound quality
When I saw these I couldn't believe it. They were cheapand advertised as "Premium" sound quality. So I said "Why not?". I took them out and tried them on. They are the worst sounding headphones I have ever heard. The mids were just...too much, barely any bass, and where's the highs? I don't usually fall for products that say they are "high quality" but the price got me. Just because some they put that on the packing does not mean that they are.
Rated 5 out of 10 by XPanda Loved until...
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).
Rated 8 out of 10 by YuseiTwili 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.
