    Hi-Fi Reflective Sound Technology Earphones w/ Microphone-Black/Bronze

    Ear Canal Diagram Get superior audio quality rivaling that of over-the-ear designs using these Hi-Fi Reflective Sound Technology Earphones from Monoprice!

    These earphones feature a unique, patented design in which the drivers are reversed to face out away from the ears. The sound resonates within the aluminum earphone body and is reflected back to the ear. This produces superior sound quality over a conventional design using the same materials, as shown in the frequency response curve below.


    Frequency Response Curve


    They feature a flat cable, which resists tangling, and a 90-degree connector, which reduces strain on the cable where it meets the plug. An inline microphone allows you to use them for phone calls, when plugged into a smartphone. The inline mic includes a button, which can be used to start and stop playback.

    Color Shot Features:

    • Unique reflective design with drivers that point outward, away from the ear
    • Reflective sound design reduces ear fatigue from extended listening sessions
    • Inline microphone allows you to use these earphone for phone calls

    They're ok
    On a whim, I bought these because they were on sale for $6 and there were some positive reviews, here and elsewhere on the Internets.

    They're...ok. It's hard to describe audio quality in words, but to me they sound kind of harsh and fizzy on the high end, and the mids and lows are just sort of there. I compared them A/B with my Sony MH1C's (still by far the best earbuds I've heard - though I'm no expert) and it wasn't even close. Interestingly, the Monoprice earbuds are much more efficient than the Sony ones - they are way louder at the same volume from the source (my Macbook, in this case).

    I can't speak to their reliablity I only used once and decided they weren't for me.

    If you need an inexpensive set of earbuds and aren't very picky about sound quality, then these could be a good choice. If you're picky like me, I'd say pass.

    PROS: They're inexpensive

    They Look nice

    They don't sound terrible

    CONS: but they don't sound great, either

    I really like them
    Great for all my calls and perfect sound for my music when at the gym

    PROS: Sound and option of color

    CONS: The cord is a tab bit long when working out.

    Button cover broken
    These earphones are great for the price. They sound good and look good. Except one big deal breaker...

    The plastic that covers the buttons break easily. I've purchased two of these and covers have fallen off each. I pushed the volume button on one and cover fell off . Luckily I found the cover and was able to re-glue it on. The other still works but bare wire is exposed so I'm afraid to use the buttons. I have no idea how it broke since it was a spare in my briefcase. Either way till this issue is resolved I'd consider another earphone option and that's a shame since they sound so awesome.

    PROS: Sound awesome

    Look great

    Great price

    CONS: Buttons cover break easily

    Right side earphone stopped working after 2 months
    They sound great but do not work for very long. Right stopped working after 2 months, might want to look elsewhere for quality earbuds.

    Wonderful, Low cost earbuds
    My daughter doesn't like over the ear type headphones, and occasionally my Bluetooth headset is dead so I need a backup.
    This is the third time I've ordered them, keep a few around all the time. I ordered three sets this time.

    PROS: Comes with multiple rubber gizmos, my daughter is 6 so I swapped out them for the smaller set.
    Survives the Washer/Dryer when said 6-year-old leaves them in her pocket.
    Cheap enough that when you lose a pair (or SOMEBODY loses a pair) it is no big deal.

    CONS: None

    I bought these on a whim. Seemed cheap if they performed better than what I had for exercising. Indeed, the bass does seem marginally better than my pricier namebrand earbuds. My son was even marginally impressed, and he has a $99 pair of earbuds. Wish these had controls for volume like others mentioned. Also, cable seems to tangle quite a bit. But, overall I'm satisfied.

    PROS: Good sound for the price

    CONS: No controls on chord

    Great sound, great value
    I'm an ear bud snob that has owned everything from $6 Panasonic buds through Bang & Olufsen's, all the way to high end Shure sound isolating buds. The monoprice buds stack up very well to more expensive models and deliver rich bass, where most inexpensive buds struggle. The Monoprice buds offer incredible sounds and value.

    PROS: - Great sound with rich bass

    - Angled plug is sturdy yet thin, allowing good plug clearance, even with an external case on the device

    - Great value at this price

    CONS: - Rubber ear bud pieces are thin and will likely not last long

    - Flat cable gets tangled easily

    I have only owned these headphones for about a week, but am thoroughly impressed thus far. The headphones offer a rich sound and a comfortable fit, which allows them to be worn for hours while in a stationary position e.g. sitting. I have not yet performed any dynamic activities in these headphones.

    PROS: Value


    Sound quality

    Shockingly good
    I plugged them in not really expecting much. WOW!
    Killer tight bass, clear kids, and crystal highs. Well balanced.
    Comfortable and very good sound isolation. My wife talking to me was unheard.
    Amazing value. Highly recommended.

    PROS: all of the above

    CONS: None I can currently think of

    I used to have apple earphones before. These are so much better! Better sound, noise isolation, solid design and materials. All that for a third of the price! Very happy with the purchase.

    PROS: Great sound, good noise isolation, flat cable, sturdy, reasonable price.

    CONS: No volume control

    does it actually stop music by button on android tab and phone?
    Gregory C on Nov 22, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The single button controller will pause playback when pushed. This will also answer an incoming call. Call is ended and playback will resume when pushed again. Works with Apple® also.
