I have used these for listening to music, calls and teleconferencing. They come in a neat little bag and the tape style wires mean that they don’t tangle (and it seems to work), there are earpieces of different size, i swopped mine for a smaller size to stop them falling out of my ears, once i had done this, a perfect fit. The sound quality is excellent to use on my phone to listen to music, so good at blocking out the environment i feel the need to take them out when i am crossing roads. Easy to navigate with the buttons. Great on androidgreat for conference calls – no sore ears, great sound and voice quality, they work on my phone and for voip on my laptop.
Good tangle-free headphones. . These headphones are very good , they sit comfortably in the ear. I am rather particular with my headphones and for me they must sound pretty good and should be robust and good quality. Well nocs have really made a good product here. They are a minimalist design; there is chamfered-cut edge, smooth aluminium surface and the construction is anodized in a subtle black shade to compliment your smart phone handset. They do not feel cheap, like some headphones out there. These headphones are the android-supported version. The cable itself is flat tangle-free; kevlar reinforced cable features nocs’ slim and lightweight, ios 7-compatible 3-button remote with mems microphone for headset use and music playback control. You can see the philosophy that nocs’ are try to go for with their superior approach to using good quality materials. Now on the subject of how they sound, i believe sound reproduction can be a very subjective discussion – that said, for me, the sound here is equal to its design, supplying the listener with good reproduction, which offers good balance, rich in detail and a deep bass in equal measure.
I’m quite picky with my earphones and struggle find a pair that have it all, but these are seemingly perfect so far. They look sleek and seem very well made and that ribbon cord is such an improvement on the usual tangle prone normal round cords. I can put them into the little pouch when not in use and know that when i take them out again i won’t have to unknot them before using them. I’ve found the sound to be excellent too. I very rarely listen to music on my phone but do use audible relentlessly and for audiobooks these give brilliant clarity to the spoken word and the instructions make everything very clear on how the controls work. The best thing about these for me though, is how well they fit. I have been on a mission to find earphones that actually fit my ears. Virtually all makes come with different sizes of replacement earbuds but i find that the small ones are too small, the big ones are too big, and the middle size fits somewhat but not enough to give me the noise cancelling i’ve been searching for.
What lovely, perfectly thought out, walk around headphones. They are elegantly made, light, have tangle free cords which i’ve only seen elsewhere on much more expensive models, a tactile inline remote which works fully with android, and which allows limited control (stop-start) of apple devices, and an absolutely breathtaking sound. And what’s more, the cool build is perfectly understated and scandinavian (ok, scandinavian designed. Probably built efficiently somewhere warm) compared to other shouty designs. The sound is good not only for the price, but comparing well with anything i’ve stuck in my ears including far more expensive sennheiser headphones, more exotic etymotics, more reputed shures. The bass is tight and controlled, never booming, but able to be deep, punchy, the midrange is forward and expressive, the treble shimmering and analytic, with amazing clarity for transients, revealing every squeak and guitar string. If i were to criticise, it is to say that this separation almost adds a slightly ethereal, and slightly less musical, edge to the music (rather like listening to a studio monitor speaker, which is pure as peaches, but not quite as easy and immersive as a regular home speaker. Still, i’ll be carrying these around rather than my ie8s.

Good sound quality for the price. Good sound quality for the price. Ear plugs block external noise sufficiently on my commute – to the point i’ve found i speak louder on a call as i can’t hear my own voice. Perfect for me travelling and taking work calls wherever i am.
The standard earphones supplied by htc are good but these give richer bass and more power. I found these earphones to give a superb sound reproduction on my htc one phone, very high quality build and finish with a comprehensive variety of ear plugs. The standard earphones supplied by htc are good but these give richer bass and more power, at least it seems so to mei will keep these for my next android phoneexcellent earphones in my layman’s opinion.
Received the package quite early and everything seemed ok until i opened it. It looked similar but the cable was not tangle-free and the earphones looked suspiciously different too. Also, no extras included (pouch, clip etc. Just to be sure i ordered the right item, i double checked the package and the picture was what i ordered. Placed a return the same minute. Disappointed especially for the price you are paying you would imagine to receive what you have ordered. 1 star until i receive a replacement. If it is the same again will request a refund. —————————————————————- update after received a new onereceived the new one and everything as it should be. All the extras are included and the cable is as advertised. I should also mention that i checked the tracking information on my first order and it was sent from dunfermline, fife uk. Didnt pay much attention until i returned it. To the exact same address but this time it had the full address which was a return facility. So they knew it was a wrong item as it was returned by someone else. Tried to send it to me straight from the return facility hoping i would not notice. The new one was shipped from germany where it should have come in the first place. In terms of the earphones, they are exactly what you would expect.
