Very good, but not enough bass. These earphones are of excellent build quality – you can definitely see why they are far more expensive than some of the other marley earphone range. That being said, however, they are far less bassy than the ‘people get ready’ marley earphones – a fact i wish i knew before i purchased this pair. Whilst they do have a good range of sounds, and do have good sound quality, i am a bit of a bass-fanatic, and these earphones don’t quite give dubstep, edm, or other bass-heavy genres the bass they require. The various earbud attachments are very good – the mixture of single and double-flange sets is a nice bonus, as i have multiple ear piercings that make certain earbuds difficult to wear. The non-tangle cord is also beneficial, making unravelling them much faster than other earphones i have owned. Overall, they are very good quality earphones, they look sleek and stylish, and are of excellent build quality, but if you are after bass, i would not recommend them.
Excellent sound quality and bass levels. Also has good noise isolation. And comes with several different attachments to fit different ear shapes.
Had these a few months now, and i can now say they are really good earphonesfirstly the build quality is exceptional, which is the real selling point of these whereby the braided cable feels rugged and all the rubber connection points feel strong and sturdy. The carry case and extra tips are a nice touch, as you would expect from something in this price range. The sound quality at first is so so and you are left feeling that the mids are lacking slightly. After the burn-in period these sound much better and balanced; producing a pleasant sound. Overall very happy with these and you get what you pay for, as i’ve had a couple of cheaper pairs that have broken recently, but with these you can feel they will last a long time.
Good headphones, wouldn’t pay full rrp. The 3 button controller is ios only which isn’t the issue – it’s the very plastic construction which feels wobbly. It’s not filling me with hope and, because it sits on the join between the two wires, it’s too far away from your mouth if you want to conduct a conversation via the microphone. I think it would have been better for hom to concentrate on the headphone construction which is, generally speaking, very impressive. The wood accents are a lovely addition. A mix of bud sizes is very handy, particularly for me and my small ears. The anti-tangle wire is a good idea and, as far as i can tell, successful. However, it is prone to annoying kinking and winding into little loops. The bass is very impressive, without draining the life out of other aspects of the range. It’s natural and full but nothing excessive.

I bought these two and a half years ago. They have endured heavy use all that time, so i thought i’d give praise where it’s due. So here’s the positives:- extremely durable. I jog with them aprx twice a week. That equals a lot of friction, bouncing, sweat, but theres no sign of trouble. Even the 3 button controller works flawlessly, which i thought would suffer from moisture eventually. – sound quality is perfect for my taste. Quite enough bass but its still very balanced. – love the design, which is not the basic piece of futuristically shaped plastic- the controller works perfectly with iphones 4 and 6.
Very, very good especially for £50. I was looking at these in store in hmv when i nearly bought them there and then for £99. 99 after reading a couple of tech reviews on audio blogs on my phone. However, i thought i would just check the price on amazon and if they were the same i’d have just got from hmv as i was gonna do a lot of walking that weekend. However, i checked amazon and – half price. 99 everywhere else but amazon have them for £50. If i have paid £100, they would get a 4 star for overall rating. Excellent sound quality for the price – a good amount of bass – not muddied over exaggerated bass like the rubbish that is made with a beats logo on, but good bass. I listen to music of all styles being that i own around 2500 cd albums, but of course i had to start with some bob.
Nice balance between sound quality and looks. Money well spentthe build quality is very good. The cord that does not get tangled is a nice bonus as well.
