I have given these headphones 5/5 for one reason, and one reason only. Sound Quality. You will not be disappointed.
They consist of BA drivers which are very responsive. The instrument separation, and quality of the sounds of even the tiniest details are reproduced excellently. Sound stage is average, nothing to brag about. Overall the output can compare with the likes of Kilpsch and Sennheiser's top dogs in the price rage of 8K or so. The BA drivers are not to everyone's liking though, so I would recommend reading about them as they are different from traditional Dynamic drivers. Not everyone likes their audio signature, which can be quite different.
They are provided with foam tips, and rubber ones. The foam tips are of very bad quality, and they can even vary between themselves. Meaning, one of the foam tips is a little more firm, and the other one is softer. This means the sound can vary depending on the tips. Its not a good thing.
The other thing about them are that other tips won't fit these IEMs. So if you think you can buy them and fir tips of your choice, then you are in for a world of trouble. You won't be able to fit your tips if you are not able to come up with a good mod for them, which can take some ingenuity and hard work. Its because the diameter of the cylindrical part where the tips are attached to is much smaller than regular IEMs.
The build quality is very bad. When you consider the sound quality, this is downright injustice. Its made of plastic, and looks very cheap. But I think the price is low, so its okay. The cables are rubbery, and thin. Keeps you wondering if that small yank has ripped it off every time. But there is one advantage. It is very light. So light that you can't feel its presence.
The two cables connecting the right and left earpieces differ in color. One of them is red. It makes it easy to recognize the right from the left.
The ear clips are useless, atleast to me. I wonder if there is anyone in the planet who would go through the trouble to fit them on the cable and then over the ear. Certainly not comfortable.
As for comfort in general, its very light. I recommend the foam tips, because it gives excellent isolation. The entire body is very small, so its not a hassle to place it inside of a bike helmet or listen while you are against a pillow. The IE80 for example is not pillow friendly.
A huge advantage over other IEMs in this price range is that this is an over the ear IEM, which gives 2 advantages. It doesn't come off when yanked, and it reduces micro-phonics. These two advantages are winners.
A pouch was included, which I lost, so I really did not use it to give you any idea about it.
As a side note: Check out Sennheiser's CX550 if its available. Its awesome at around 4K, and has all the goodies one can expect from a good IEM.
FOR listeners: These IEMs are great for Trance, and ambient music. The bass is a little lesser than what I am used to, but I like the clarity of the sound much better.
For other kinds of music too, it is awesome as you get to hear new sounds, which can never be heard in IEMs of this price range. The BA drivers are very good. As I already told you bass is less in these IEMs, so go to another brand if all you prefer is bass. Hip hop and vocals are pleasant and there is nothing to complain about. Pair it with a good source, and you will be stunned at the sound it produces. It far exceeds the likes of its competitors at around 2K.
Warranty: Warranty is only one year. Keep the bill safe, as it is not expected to last one whole year if you use it roughly. The local service center here was helpful to me, and I guess they would replace in the event of any failure. Take good care of them if you buy em, as there are not many service centers around, like other brands(Sennheiser,Sony,etc).
Trivia: After a few months, the IEMs failed me, probably because of rough usage. So if you're planning for gym usage, look elsewhere.
Overall: 5/5 for Audio quality, cheap price.

As far as sound goes the only thing that comes close IMO and it actually comes very close is the meelec CX21. That's a great sounding headphone as well but I had fit problems which took me about a month to figure out.
The build quality appears to be decent, not the best but good enough. The cord is thinck rubber but then it splits into two thin wires when it goes to the headphone pieces. It seems as though it would be easy to break these at the headphone piece part if they're tugged on too much.
You wear these by wrapping the wire over your ear. The ear clips can take a lot of pressure off the weak spot on the headphones so I recommend using those if you decide to go over the ear. These can be worn straight down as well but you have to of course turn them so they fit. Wearing them straight down seems to be the best way to make sure your headphones have a nice long life.
Compared to other BA headphones though these are way better than the backbeat pro and creative aurvana. the creative aurvanas sound decent compared to this but the backbeat pros sound like AM radio with too much unnatural bass.
I love the fit, these don't fall out at all with any of the tips provided although all the tips don't necessarily create a seal. I noticed if I push too far in my ear it breaks the seal with any of the tips. So inserting them deep doesn't mean it's going to create a seal. It takes a bit of playing around with but once they're in they're staying and they fit better than anything else I have.
These are probably the best generic Chinese headphones out there IMO.
When I received them, I noticed the packaging quality was a bit on the flimsy side and, upon opening the package, the "hard case", the zippered storage case, for the buds was not there; several of the ear pieces appeared to be missing. This is based on what is pictured here on Amazon (the second picture showing the buds and the accessories unboxed). There, also, is very little information on how to assemble the item and the appropriate way to wear them (no instructions) but, it doesn't take a "rocket scientist" to figure this out.
The bottom line is that they sound "tinny" to me but, perhaps I haven't found the right "fit" yet. I'm disappointed I did not receive the "hard" protective storage case (a soft faux leather black purse with drawstrings was provided in lieu of the "hard" case). I'm concerned that I may have received a "knock-off" based on what I have found for reviews and viewed on the web; I guess time will tell.
This product has a great reputation; I just hope it is the one I just purchased and received. This is the first time in my long association with Amazon that I have questioned or been dissatisfied with a product purchased here.
Secondly, I am by no means an audiophile. So, when it comes to sound quality, the only thing I can compare these to are my two previous sets of canal phones : Shure SE-115K's and Audio Technica ATH-CKM50A's. Honestly, as long as they are buried as far into the ear canal as possible, they sound alright. However, due to the shallow design, it is nearly impossible to keep them far enough in to get any good bass response. They are pretty easily overpowered on the low end by both my previous sets of canal phones (especially the Shures, which are very bass-heavy). Mids seem overemphasized, though that may just be a personal preference, and Highs seem pretty clear and detailed. Overall, though, a definite downgrade from my Shures, and a slight downgrade from my Audio Technicas (which are about $10 cheaper).
