According to reviews the sound is great but not worth the cost of the product. Many other earphones that are cheaper produce equal sound, if not better at a lower cost.

My grievance is that there is no inline volume control on the earphones. How can they skip on this common feature.

Its not what i have read, in the 50$ and under, its on paar and even better... He produce a bit too much of bass, but the only earphones balanced at this price is the Logitech E600 so...

Anyway, im not really much interested on it and im a bit more curious about the CM ones. ( even just for the color, i cant stand green fluo )

Need say i was think lately to some earbuds for when i dont want take my big over-ears headsets when behind my pc.. ( just for quick voice com and short gaming, or music listening ).

There are also some interesting budget-oriented Nuforce iems. Razers look solid, however you can get cheap & functional storage case if you're afraid you might break your earbuds when transporting, for example I use this: http://www.yourbrainwavz.com/case01.html

...and somehow I read that as 'Hemorrhoid' at first glance.

I'm sticking to my UE in-ears. =/
