Rated 3 out of 5 by disappointed in california Pretty pricy for something not made well
I used them frequently over a 4 month period at the gym and on jogs. I found them to be my headphone of choice even though I had multiple pairs. I was surprised at how I was able to find a snug fit for earbuds as i normally have trouble with the earpieces falling out of my ears. On the other hand: Volume adjustment and song "shuffle" switch on cord stopped functioning correctly after very little use. This was not a big deal to me as I barely use that dial, but considering the price I feel like it should be constructed MUCH better if I am expected to buy a second pair. And today, 4/7/11 after receiving them as a gift this past christmas, the cord is broken under the insulation. They worked fine this morning and I wore them around my neck as I took a walk and apparently that was enough force to damage the flimsy wire under the red insulation because now the bass is totally gone, and when I wiggle the wire it pops back in for a split second. Very disappointed especially since they were a gift I am not eligible for warranty. My advice: if you are going to buy them, keep the receipt close.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ed A bit muddy
This would be a great pair of buds if the sound wasn't so muddy. I've compared them to my Beats Studio, and while it is clear that they're not gonna be as potent as the Studios, the sound is a bit too muddy for my liking - it should be clearer, more defined, to make these headphones truly suitable for audiophiles. Additionally, they're not the best at eliminating ambient noise. Conclusion: sharpen up the sound a bit and work on the isolation properties and these will be some of the greatest in-ears available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Falken27 Cheap Wiring
I love the bass and clarity of the earbuds. You really "hear what you've been missing". The only downside is watch how you store them. If you're a person who wraps them around your ipod when not in use, you wil have to stop doing that. I did that to mine and the wire housing began to split at the headphone jack. Now, when I sit a certain way, the sound is shifted to the right earbud, or the sound is mysteriously turned up 2 or 3 clicks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gym Rat Broken, for the 2nd time!!!
This is the second time that I am having to return these for warranty repair. It seems that they only last for a couple of months before the wire near the jack breaks and the audio in the left ear cuts out. Unless you take special care of these while using, they will go bad. It seems they might benefit from a sturdier jack construction since this is where a lot of pressure is placed when used for working out. It's a pitty because the sound is excellent, the fit is comfortable, and the ear pieces themselves are sturdy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Music lovin' mom! I WANT TO LOVE THEM!!!
I bought my 15 year old daughter the JusBeats for Christmas! I was sooooo excited to give them to her, but about a month later, she wasn't wearing them anymore (this child walks around the house with her earphones in!). When I asked her about them, she said that they weren't working!!! WHAT??? When I purchased the earphones, I also purchased a 2-year warranty, so back to the store they went (they were replaced with ibeats). And they went back again...and again. We are on our fourth pair since Christmas, and these just went out in one ear this week. I don't even know how to feel...I'm disappointed...

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bob the Guy "needs to finish in the clutch"
I have had these for a while and have to say that these blew me away, at first. After a while they start feeling uncomfortable and fall out of my ears even though i switched the size of the buds. a few weeks ago i noticed that there was a short in the wire and only one of the buds worked, [...]

Rated 3 out of 5 by a not good enough
The sound for iBeats is great. However, the wiring is not that great so one side of my earphones has no sound anymore and I have to twist my wire for a few times to get the sound. PS: I've only used it for 2 months. So if you want a really lasting earphones, don't get this one despite the great sound.
