      Best sound quality within price range bass is punchy but not muddy and distorted
      Built in microphone is pretty much unusable you have to talk very loudly for people to hear you the design is slightly large

      The sound is great - nice clear sound and a deep bass.
      Easy to set up and connect.
      Good choice of ear bud sizes to find the perfect fit.
      You have to persevere to find the perfect fit of ear bud and ear hook. Get it wrong and the sound is awful and the 'phones won't stay in place in your ear.
      Not the most stylish design.

      The design is cool
      They aren't great for running, one always manages to fall out. The size is actually quite big compared to on the photo they provide.
