I bought these to wear while snowboarding and for the money I cannot fault them so far, used for the first full day yesterday and even under the pressure of my beanie on top I didn't even notice they were there all day long. The battery life has been outstanding and sound quality is great too with a decent kick to the bass, the mids and high are great but not as sharp as a more expensive pair might get you. I also own a pair of jaybird x2 earbuds and their mids and highs are super crisp but no bass at all and they get uncomfortable after several hours of use. I only wish I could have bought the newer Spirit X version but they are not currently available in my country yet for the low price, but I'm sure these are only a marginal step behind and definitely worth the money. No this is most definitely not a paid fake promotion I am just genuinely impressed with these earbuds for the money.
