I have purchased 10 pairs of these headphones for myself and others and had no complaints whatsoever. Everyone that I personally know that owns them loves them!
This is an honest review and I received no compensation whatsoever for this review.
I ride a motorcycle and normally use earplugs and clip-on earphones under my helmet. I was looking for ear buds to replace both.
Now, for the review of the Creative EP-660 model ear bud.
I like these. The fit is (surprisingly) comfortable. I have these stupid small ear canals which is why I hate ear buds in general. Using the smallest (of 3 provided) rubber things, these fit well. I think another reviewer mentioned this also.
For my purposes, they sound good. The bass is sharp and punchy. Mid range is OK. High range crisp. With EQ modifications, they sound good. They will distort at a very high volume but they're ear buds. How loud do they need to be?
Bottom line: For $16.00, I'm going to buy another couple pair as replacements.
It's important to note, these are "noise isolating" ear buds. NOT noise canceling. These simply prevent "most" outside noise from entering your ear. I find they prevent approximately (really a guess) 2/3's of the noise ear plugs prevent. Considering, my helmet is very noisy at highway speeds, this is a lot.
Very cheap (price).
Fits stupid small ear canal.
Sound reproduction is better than average.
Lots of bass.
Did I mention they're only $16.00?
Mid range frequency is just OK.
Discontinued by the manufacturer. Better get them while you can!
These little babies are phenomenal. They are very small and come with three sizes of rubber in-ear pieces that can be swapped out.
The first thing I noticed when I first used these was the superb way they cancel outside noises. I couldn't hear anything after I slapped these in, including my wife trying to talk to me from two feet away. I had to actually take them out to hear what she was saying, and that was before I even started playing any music. The other immediate thing was the enormous range of the bass. It's not too heavy and seems just right with my Zen on "Rock" setting, but it is deep. The mid-range is loud and boisterous without being arrogant and hurtful. The midrange can get washed out if the volume is too high, but that's at the levels of hearing damage anyway. The highs seem a small bit lacking, but too much treble is annoying to me anyway and hurts my ears. I'm not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination, but all-in-all, these are perfect for me and I'm extremely glad that I bought them. The sound is unbeatable for the price. Creative makes sound cards for computers and I believe that a company that does that must know about sounds and audio. These prove to me that I was correct in that assumption. Very pleased.
EDIT: It is now February 9th, 2013. I have now had this exact set of earbuds since July of 2011. They are still going just as strong as the day I received them. The wires have no wear on them and neither bud has blown. I am not exactly gentle with them either. The rubber covering is showing zero signs of wear and they are still very comfortable. I use these for everything. I work out and run with them on, I work on the engine in my vehicle with them on, I do dishes/housework/vacuum with them on - all with exactly zero problems. For this price, there is literally not a better deal. Maybe the 630's are similar, but I will stand by these 660's until the cows come home.
Edit #2: It is now June 8th, 2014 and these earbuds are STILL going strong. Even after the countless times they've been ripped from my ears while doing chores or cutting the grass, they still work as well as they did on the day I bought them. My wife continually yells at me that she can't talk to me while they're in, which is a testament to how well they still block outside noise. I even dunked one of them into a paint can as I was painting a wall in my new house. Took it out, ran water over it and still worked. The small rubber piece that covers the actual 3.5mm jack has started coming off, but I'll be honest, I paid $30 for these and they've lasted this long. Awesome.
Edit#3: As a response to someone who commented on my review - I'm not divorced yet and don't expect to be, so there's that. Now, on to the update regarding the product. It is now April 16th 2015, and I'm still using these earbuds. Unfortunately, I think I'm going to have to buy a new pair. Yesterday, I think the left bud finally went out. I think that's the one I accidentally dropped in the paint can a year ago (and subsequently washed it out with a healthy dose of water). I've tried to tap it and blow out any debris from the small screen, but it just appears to be dead. I'm sad, because these have gone everywhere with me, but I will certainly order a new pair.
