    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.

    Absolutely Astounding!

    Pros: Performance, exceptional bass without being muddy allowing the full spectrum of instruments in a wide and clear sound stage. These should be referred to as earphones with built in Subwoofer sound.

    Cons: None as of yet, the build quality should allow these to last a nice long time.

    I've been a fanatic of earphone for ages, they a convenient portable pocket music medium. These set the performance bar to a whole new level. I was so impressed that I ordered another pair before burning in the first pair. One thing that must be made clear is that these were producing the deep clear and heavy bass in addition to the clearest mids and crystal high right out the package. They are Bass intensive yet with the clearest combination of mids and highs all in one tiny power package. These have become my go to earphones with no regrets. I wish more people would try these out before dropping their money down on the more expensive earphones out there, chances are they'll save themselves some money real quick.

    Great Earbuds at a Great Price

    Pros: Cable quality
    Cable doesn't tangle
    STRONG low-end
    Decent mids and highs
    Microphone is clear
    Button control functionality

    Cons: None yet

    If you are thinking of pulling the trigger on some earbuds, you should consider these. Now, they aren't be everyone but I would bet that most people would be very happy with these. So what do I mean by that? I am not a serious audiophile who would spend more than $300 on a pair of cans but some of the people in my circle of friends would. I have owned several Bose headphones and also the Monoprice 8323 headphones and I've loved them both. I also recently purchased the Monoprice 9927 earbuds (arguably their most popular model). Now, I understand that there are times when I need to hear the "honest" makeup of the music. When my band is tracking, mixing, and mastering, I need to be able to hear everything as clearly and level as possible. But for casual listening, I don't mind a little color in the sound. I listen to music all over the genre spectrum but I typically settle on well-produced rock, hip-hop, and pop music. That being said, I love to "feel" the music through my headphones. That's where these come in (and much better than the 9927's). For not advertising as a large-driver earbud, the low-end is very strong. That won't be what everyone wants but I would also venture a guess that most music players can adjust EQ settings. If you listen to music with synthetic beats, then you'll love these earbuds as the bass drum literally shakes in your ear. And I love that. The mid-range and highs could probably be a bit brighter but at the end of the day, I paid less than $8 for these babies.

    A nice plus is the microphone and button control. I haven't used the microphone a lot but whenever I do, the caller on the other end never complains. The button is limited to pausing/resuming (one push) or skipping to the next track (two pushes). But again, you're paying so little for these headphones that you can't really be mad about that.

    For its longevity, I can't speak to that. I've only had these headphones about a month and I have used them for exercise as well as when I landscape. It has withstood both of those activities well and has made doing both more enjoyable.

    Pros: Sound and option of color

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

    Great for all my calls and perfect sound for my music when at the gym

    Good sound and build, unreliable button

    • Joe from Brooklyn,

    Pros: -Excellent sound
    -Solid build quality
    -Flat, thick, rubbery cord is excellent at avoiding tangles
    -Pretty sharp looks
    -Comfortable fit

    Cons: -Terrible inline control button
    -A bit heavy/bulky compared to other earbuds doesn't fit in the pocket quite as nicely

    These have very good sound, with some of the thumpiest bass I've ever heard from a pair of earbuds astonishing for something this inexpensive. The build quality seems superior to most other cheap earbuds. They feel solid and durable. The cords have a pleasantly-grippy rubber coating.

    There might be some quality control issues my first pair had the odd habit of registering a button press every time the plug was jostled. I'd put the phone in my pocket, and Siri would just randomly trigger, or the music would stop. (The replacement pair I received doesn't seem to have the same problem.)

    My only hesitation recommending these is the button on the inline microphone is terrible. A lot of the time clicks don't register at all, and the rest of the time a single click registers instead as a hold, triggering Siri. I wish these had the same button as my pair of trusty 10153's, but since it doesn't these are relegated to backup duty.

    Great sounding, great service

    Pros: Great sound, great price, generally durable

    Cons: Did have to replace once within a couple of months, but since then, no problems

    I bought 2 pair of these for my daughters, and while each had to be replaced when the sound went from stereo to mono, the replacements have been great with no issues. Monoprice products are high quality, and when there are issues, as there were for us, their customer service is quick and excellent in dealing with returns and exchanges. Love the product, love the company
