I bought these from Amazon last week at around this price and have to say I am rather underwhelmed with them, glad I didnt pay more because I dont think they are worth it. The sound isnt as good as the earphones which came with my sansa fuze (which I am realising, are actually pretty decent earbuds after having now tried a few different pairs). It's the first time I've used this type of earphone and don't especially like the feel in the ears. The main plus is that they do dampen, if not block out, traffic noise, and that they don't tend to fall out like my other earphones.
I know earphones are a very personal thing, and a lot of people have given good reviews on Amazon, which is why I decided to try them. OK, probably expecting too much for a cheapish pair of phones, but just my personal opinion and experience. Don't pay more than this if you are looking to try some out.

if you bought them from a seller/shop (even on amazon) other than the amazon themselves chances are high that you bought a counterfeit pair.there are tons of them around.
because these earphones sound very good much better than any supplied earphones and should make %95 people happy.

Shouldn't be on here due to it being an Amazon seller. Although I did buy some myself, without thinking about them being fake ones- eep guess I'll have to take the gamble now

I thought I'd add my tuppence worth as I've owned my EP-630 earpohnes for well over a year now and am still extremely pleased with them. I've not had any problems with them and would strongly recommend them to anyone.
-They block out background noise almost completely so they are ideal for use on public transport.

I've since read a few more reviews and not everyone thinks these are the bees knees. Of course, no real way of knowing if they are fakes, but just because I dont like the sound doesnt necessarily make them fakes. They are ok, just not that good.(And why should they be at this price, I suppose).
But I still dont like the feel of them. Nope, my sansa buds are the ones I will be sticking with!

Great headphones. If anybody buys these and doesn't use the medium earbuds I'll be more than happy to buy them .

Thanks for the heads up,these were on my radar, but as some others have said these were from the Amazon market place and my recent experience of that is that it is not to be trusted.

You know you can actually buy a pack of ten rubber buds alone, in whichever specific size you want, for the Sennheisers (which will fit these). I can’t remember the cost, but I’ve seen the blister packs on the racks in shops, and I recall that I think it seemed a fair price at the time.

Also, note my comments in this similar thread, regarding comparison between this product and the Sennheiser CX-300.

These are fine if they are genuine - but so many fakes abound. See this site.

You can buy it directly from Amazon for £2 extra. (£9.61)

Bertt, thanks for that link. Having given mine the once over, mine appear to be genuine. (I got them from Amazon's Jersey merchant).

I have just ordered directly from Amazon as it's only £2 extra, its worth it in my opinion to be absolute sure of the quality.

Love these earphones. Friends were impressed and ordered some as well. Beware of fakes though. I paid around 7 quid from play and they were legit.

I totally agree with the other posters here - I think every single EP-630 I have bought from a source other than Amazon Indigostarfish has been fake (and I have bought maybe 8-10 pairs over the years). Without doubt I would spend the extra £2 to get a genuine pair if I were in the market for new headphones.

The difference in quality between Genuine (very good) and Fake (usually appalling & they break within a few weeks / months) is very, very noticable. It's just not worth the hassle to buy them elsewhere.

Yeah these earphones arent amazing but at the price they are, ive had sansa buds from the clip/clip+ and fuze, imo i found them terrible and the ep630 wipes the floor with any presupplied earbuds (unless fake!) .As soon as you get to £20+ range though their true performance shows where its budget and way to much bass, i have owned a fair few mid range earphones and my headphones are about £100 so i class them are mid/high end, you can tell the difference a lot :P.

However im not sure why yours are sounding so bad, it could be you have fakes but i guess it could just simply be as you mentioned you dislike the in ear style? For me im the opposite, can hardly hear the ones that sit in your ear and they let so much noise its useless (from experience) but thats just me.

like someone else mentioned pay the extra £2 and buy them directly from amazon.so you will be confident you have the genuine quality product.and Creative are selling them for £15 on their own website.

got them for £5.18 from play a while ago. COLD as an eskimo in a bad mood

Mine arrived from Lime Pint and I can say they are definitely Genuine, came in the creative boxing, manuals with serial numbers stickers etc, the cords are the same length, rounded, high quality metal ring, the buds are matt finish, the cord sheaths are rubber and not plastic, and the plastic rim is angled not straight. Surprised really, as I was expecting them to be fake seeing as they also sell "genuine" apple earphones for £3... although they're pretty much worth that anyway lol

Should do me until I come accross an offer for some klipsch or shure ones.
