Heard a lot of good things about these earphones, will pick up a pair at this price for sure!

Have been slightly cheaper a few days ago, but haven't been posted on here at under £4 as far as I can see.

I have a pair and they are quality, from what i remember they won awards sounding better than ones costing 10x the price they are just a little weird looking.

Hot

Hot from me !

cheers

No, I paid double this but unable to use them as they keep falling out.
Great find btw

amazing earphones if they fit you. better sound than some of the big players

Bargain bought Thanks

hot hot

Very hot deal! I'm not so sure they have been cheaper. The £3.56 price on camelcamelcamel didn't include the 3rd party seller delivery charge. I've been thinking about getting them for a few weeks now and I hadn't seen them go below £4.54.

Do you mean that the drivers don't stay in your ears when they are facing upwards or that the tips are the wrong size? Most people recommend you replace the tips unless you are a lucky one and the included ones fit perfectly. There are plenty of replacement tips on eBay for £1 delivered if they don't fit.

For those who say they don't fit, make sure you are wearing them as pictured:

I know it looks like they are upside down, but you wont get a good seal / will have them falling out of your ears if you don't.

Just ordered a pair, coming Monday. Seem good for the money

They fit me just fine, but my daughter needed replacement tips, for which the set she bought cost more than the earphones

Yeah, I do believe you are right. Seems this is the cheapest they've been!

I don't really need these as i've only just ordered some new headphones, but for this price I can justify it as an interesting experiment!

They've just announced new models but I think the only changes were the colour scheme IIRC.

They don't stay in for me very well either as they are fairly shallow fitting and the casing is rather large. Bass light as well, even compared to my etys and vsonic vc02

These are a steal at the price, the sound is much better than nearly all headphones up to £30

Mine used to fall out a bit too, but if you wrap the wire around the ear they never do.
Heres the video i found that showed the way to wear them

Can anyone post a link to some suitable eartips to these? I was hoping for some double cupped ones to help with the noise isolation but can't seem to find any on eBay

Got these for slightly more a while ago. The tips don't fit one of my ears very well. The tips aren't pointy enough for me. The sound quality is good for the price.

Bass light compared to etymotic? oO
Think I'll pass. I'm using soundmagic E10's atm, don't think I'll be able to handle a huge decrease in bass

The bass is superb, IF they make a proper seal in your ear.

If I'm not mistaken the new models come with multiple eartips

They cost £3 odd, so you can hardly expect them to compare favourably with E10s or other 'premium' brands.
Funny thing is they do.

Bought another pair as backup, thanks OP.

the same is on one of the pictures @amazon

I experimented with these earphones and for me they were good but not excellent as if doesn't seal my ears perfectly.. But good for the price paid... Cheers:)

I hope these will be great for my ear and great for backup Wednesday on a plane. Thanx

Thanks OP. Bought

I was going to buy these earlier, glad i waited now

I bought a pair a few weeks ago to replace a pair of creative EP-630s off the astounding monoprice reviews around and they are the best headphones you`ll get at this price no question.
I find the reviews overrated however, i`m a drum and bass producer and they lack the noise cancellation, comfort,deep bass and presence of the EP-630s at the £8 mark (despite the lack of volume on the 630s).
I`ve found the monos just cannot handle any kind of eq to make them sound warmer or better.
While i`m sure better fitting earplugs would help i`d rather they built that into the design and cost more than go for bargain basement status.
For £8 i don`t think the ep630s can be beaten really for a pair out and about,my studio headphones are sennheiser hd 25 mk2 which are fantastic but they cost well over £100.

Anybody know if these Can be used with my iPhone????

^^^^^

Wut?

Bought a pair! Quality sound for three quids with free delivery!
Heated!
Cheers OP!

Ordered a second pair, great for the cost, alittle weird looking, though the people i work with seem to mind more than i do.

My bud of choice for on the the bike, i can hear the music above the engine/exhaust/screaming women and children, just bought another 2 pairs, cheers.

Bought mine a couple of weeks ago but now i watched the video i can appreciate them, paid about £4.56 i think well worth it!:)

I have a pair. They are cheaply made and bought in bulk from an American website. Good sound quality but extremely uncomfortable and look hideous. They go in the ear like In Ear Monitors that singers use but the cable that wraps around the top of the ear does not hold in place properly. The cabling to the headphones is wrapped in a material that easily knots. For the price they are worth it but i would have preferred to pay a bit more for something more comfortable.

Go for it

Ordered. Thanks for posting, OP. Heat added.

Thanks OP

Cheers. Was looking at these cult classics on the US Monoprice site but shipping was murder...

Bought them a few days back at this price, should be arriving today. Sold my Shure SE535's and a brand new pair of uR Beats by Dre and settled for this after hearing my friends. Theres a video/pics online showing some guy cutting a small ring of yellow foam, like replacement buds the same size as the plastic floppy ear piece and he stuck them into the back of them where they are open. This created a firm feeling bud with its original black plasticky thing covering/hiding the yellow bud behind it. You can cut the yellow foam bud to the size of your ear hole.

This creates the seal which increases the noise cancellation and gives you the enhanced bass as good as the premium buds do and makes them comfortable to wear as well without having to wrap them round the top of your ear. Theres also a further guide to opening them up and replacing the wires to give even better sound with less inteference. At this point your cost may have gone up to £10-£15, but then the buds go to a whole new level at this point going toe to toe with £100+ headphones.

I'll try to find the links for both buds and wiring. I bought two so that i could carry out the above experiment and compare how muc of a difference the changes make to stock buds.
