Great value, design and sound quality. For $40.00, it is definitely my favourite ear bud out there. If you're willing to sacrifice some bass in your music while using ear buds, then this is the one for you. Once again: The only thing these headphones lack is good bass.
The sound quality is great for ear buds, but don't be expecting amazing bass. In fact, these headphones can't pump out much bass at all. The sound quality is really good and clear, especially because of the way the headphone goes deeper into your ear. Little bass though, that's a key point here.
I really like the rubber pieces on the tips, rather than regular plastic. When you put these in your ear, they stay there and don't come out unless you want them to. Another benefit of the rubber ear piece tip is that it blocks out a lot of outside sound. There are multiple reasons this is useful.
A) You can listen to your iPod or whatever at a MUCH lower volume than usual, both prolonging battery life and ensuring the longevity of your hearing abilities.
B) If you're riding the bus or sitting beside an annoying person that you really don't want to listen to, the rubber piece really cancels out that sound and delivers the music directly into your ear, without having to boost the volume super high.
In addition, there is a 2 cm long plastic piece on the wire that allows you to change the volume without having to take your MP3 Player out of your pocket. It's best used for quickly lowering your music if someone wants to briefly ask you something. It's not really that great for fine tuning the volume height, but for doing that you can just take your unit out out of your pocket. These ear buds come in black, white and pink, so they can match just about anyone's style.
For $40.00 I would say these headphones are definitely worth the buy. With the $40.00, you get a carrying case to protect them, three, different sized, interchangeable rubber ear piece tips and the headphones themselves. In addition, you receive a "Limited Lifetime Warranty", which I assume is a one-time replacement at any point down the line. Good value, in my opinion.
I can't say I smash these things around, but they are definitely not fragile. The two most vulnerable parts are the thin rubber pieces and the wires, but really, you would have to try REALLY hard in order to damage those.
For park or general freestyle these are a damn good set of bindings that get the job done. I would deffinetly recomend them.
They seem to provide a better connection the the ski than the old S810s did, I left the little lifter/shock absorber thing on and it doesnt seem to be an issue on rails at all. Not much else to say.
Well flat black is pretty hard to go wrong with in terms of looks. The heelpiece on these is deffinetly the key to the way these things stay on when you want them to. Getting in and out is no harder with the different desing. Not exactly light but its not like they are so heavy they tire you out, and its worth to have them stay on.
I got em for $170, I believe they retail at $200, either way its worth it for the binding you get. It is hard to ignore the fact that you pay to have them say Look on them, but its not a big deal.
Granted, I havent taken any killer falls this year, but I've bailed a few times in ways that would have probalby broke the toepiece on my old S810s. They hold solid and stay on when you want them to. I only have my DIN at 6 and it should be higher, but I wont move it up until I find a away to get them off by eating it.
Well as far as bindings go I guess just fine. Obviously they scratch but unless something straight up breaks this really isnt a relavant catagory.
