    Hi-Fi Reflective Sound Technology Earbuds Headphones with Microphone-Black/Carbonite

    Hi-Fi Reflective Sound Technology Earphones


    You don't have to spend a lot of money to get great sound and nowhere is that more evident than in these in-ear earphones. Featuring a unique design, they produce better sound, with stronger bass and cleaner highs, than conventional in-ear designs. Enjoy your music on-the-go and keep more of your money in your pocket, without making sonic sacrifices of any kind.

    Superior audio quality rivaling that of over-the-ear designs

    Frequency Response Comparison

    These in-ear earphones feature sound quality that rivals that of over-the-ear headphones costing hundreds of dollars. The unique design inverts the driver orientation so that the sound reflects, reverberates, and builds body within the aluminum shell. This produces a flatter frequency response, with a stronger bass response and cleaner mids and highs than conventional designs using the same materials, as shown in the chart above.

    How much noise will it isolate? In terms of db?
    A shopper on Dec 11, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I do not think they are rated for noise isolation. They do reduce the external noise, but how much is unknown. Less than most earplugs, so I'd say less than 20dB.
    In summer I mow the lawn using these, and on top of them I put some over the ear noise protection "ear-muffs". (stuff rated, but I forget the rating). That's great, but after some times my ears will sweat and they will pop out :-)
    If you need real noise protection, get something rated.
    Does this product have a single button microphone control?

    Great at first but some design/ manufacturing flaws
    Just like many others, I was impressed by the sound and quality. You can not beat the price for a decent set of earphones with a mic. There is one major design flaw in the 90 degree connection at the 3.5mm plug. After a week of occasional use people said there was static on the line when I lacked to them, so I quit using them for hands free talking and only used the earbuds for listening to music and audio books. I did notice occasional static and sometimes the static caused my music or book to stop playing on my device. Last night I lost audio in the right ear and that made them unusable to me. Since they didn't cost much (not enough to justify a return) I dissected the 90 degree elbow and found the problem. The hard plastic under the rubber is broken exposing the ground and stripping the jacket from some of the tiny wires. This explains most of the issues I have read about such as, the sound is mono instead of stereo, one of the ears quit working, music stops playing, or static. These issues are caused by different wires intermittently or permanently shorting. After prolonged stress on the exposed wires inside the elbo some of them eventually break like mine did last night, eliminating the audio from the right side.

    PROS: Great sound for the price, comfortable, and somewhat tangle free.

    CONS: If the 90 degree angle connector bends the plastic inside breaks. It will break with normal use. This causes all the issues mentioned in the other reviews.

    Great sound, not so qreat longevity...
    I loved these for the price, but having replaced them three times already, maybe it's better just to just spend the money on a good pair you won't have to replace.

    PROS: They sound amazing, they look cool, great price!

    CONS: I've bought three pairs in the last year and a half as they stop working after a couple months....even if you are gentle.

    Excellent fit and sound
    Most in-ear headphones don't fit my ears well, and leave them sore after 30 minutes. These are the most comfortable I have found - soft, non-irritating, and stay in place well. The sound is excellent for in-ear. I listen to both audible and Amazon prime music frequently, and like the sound. I like them enough that I purchased two additional pairs for gifts.

    PROS: comfortable
    good sound
    stay in place
    cord does not tangle much

    Great sound with a crappy button
    These are my 3rd pair of headphones of the same model. The sound quality is really pretty excellent, I am sure they could stand up to something that costs 4 or 5 times as much. The cord is actually pretty tangle free, and durable. The connector being at a right angle is nice too.
    The only thing I absolutely can't stand is the pause / play button. It's easy enough to click, but it won't actually register a press unless you apply a lot of pressure. Which is pretty obnoxious when you're trying to press twice in rapid succession and skip to the next song. I thought I got a bum model but this is the third pair. I'd recommend 14088s instead (which have better bass).

    PROS: Great sound
    Tangle resistant, well made cord

    CONS: Pause/Play Button is barely functional and pretty frustrating

    Excellent value
    Been trying a few of the monoprice headphones including the dual driver 14456 and enhanced bass 9927. Of the three, these are my favorite, and will most likely be my go-to 'bud for care-free NYC commuting.

    Infinitely more comfortable than the 9927. The bud sits comfortably and securely in my ear without feeling like it is slipping out. It requires slightly more power to deliver the same volume and bass as the 9927, but at the same volume level sounds clean and smooth without being bright or boomy.

    At half the price of the 14456, I can't see switching to those, even if the RMA that I'm waiting for does sound marginally better. But we'll see. Still need to compare to the HiFi Noise Cancelling 9396, but the reviews about their durability give me pause.

    PROS: Clean Sound
    Great price

    CONS: None for me.
    May not fit as comfortably in all ears.

    good back up head phones
    for the price, no complaints whatsoever. These are not high end head phones and may not be perfect for an "audiophile" type of person. However, if you go by what you hear instead of numbers produced in a test, you will find them adequate and great to have and leave in different places you may need. I keep these in the car as a backup for the bluetooth or when I go to the gym

    PROS: great bang for the buck

    CONS: thin wire tends to tangle more often than expected

    Defective plug design
    I've purchased 6 different pair of headphones from Monoprice over time. I've had good results, and have really enjoyed my experiences. I'll continue to shop at Monoprice. However, these latest headphones are defective in the design of the plug. If you put pressure on the plug, then release pressure (on an iPhone 6S G Big model), it pauses the music, or cues Siri. I received a second pair of these yesterday, and the problem is true of the replacement pair as well. These are the ONLY headphones of all the ones I've purchased, which have this problem. I think the headphones sound great by the way, and I'd recommend them only if you don't plan on putting your phone in your pocket while these headphones are plugged in.

    PROS: Great sound for the price!

    CONS: Puts my music into pause or cues Siri when you press on the plug.

    Play/pause button and mic stopped working
    I was very much liking these earbuds. However, I can't give them a good review as the play/pause button has stopped working with less than three months of light use. As well, the in-line mic also barely works anymore, and I end up having to switch to speaker-phone instead.

    PROS: Flat cable, good sound

    CONS: Play/pause button non-functional, mic barely picks up voice.
