I originally bought the Q30s (with the cable) but wasn't happy with them and saw these had just been released. The smart-touch button is a good feature as you don't have to push hard on the earbud to "press" the button for functions. Unfortunately I don't think they come with volume control on the buds (you have to use your phone/device). While they are on the LEDs don't flash, which makes them great for use in bed or when you're trying to relax in a dark room. They can go really loud which is awesome! And I can walk around my (albeit small) apartment away from my phone and they sound is still crisp. The buds sit snug and comfortable, and don't protrude out of your ears. You can't really go wrong with these at this price.
