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

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
PROS: Sound and option of color
CONS: The cord is a tab bit long when working out.
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
CONS: Buttons cover break easily
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.
PROS: Good sound for the price
CONS: No controls on chord
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
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
PROS: Great sound, good noise isolation, flat cable, sturdy, reasonable price.
CONS: No volume control
