Very good for the price

Poor Cord And Clip Design

Working Out
Althought I prefer on or over the ear phones for prolonged listening, this in-ear and noice-canceling design is very good for the money in noisy surroundings and on an airplane, but don't expect Bose-level performance. I would buy these again for sure, but the cord design is annoying. When working out or walking down the street the lengh of the wires between phones and the canceling/battery unit and that of the wires between the unit and where it plugs into the sound source is never quite right and the clip does not reliably hold on to anything.

Working Out
These earbuds have an excellent overall sound quality and noise reduction is quite good. However, I found them uncomfortable for extended use. I tried all of the different size inserts and none were comfortable. The cord is a bit short.
