They have been my go-to headphones after the first use, especially for working out. The bass and noise isolation are so much better than I would have expected in this price range. I have had $60 earphones and $90 Soul earphones and these are honestly just as good as either of those. These don't seem to get quite as loud as other ear phones that I have used in the past, but its gets more than loud enough to get the job done. If you're a serious audiophile, you shouldn't be looking at anything cheaper than that anyways, but you'd be surprised how close these are in quality. If you're just a regular person who likes to hear their music well, you can't go wrong with these.
