The A151s provide good sound, and are at least on par with most other sub-$50 in-ear headphones. Bass tends to be more balanced (some would say flat) than many listeners would like, though whether or not that's a bad thing depends in part on your taste in music. One plus: the A151s tangle-resistant braided cord generally works well, making these a good choice if, like many people, you find yourself constantly untangling your cable every time you remove your headphones from a case or pocket. Though the A151s come with multiple silicone eartips, some users report discomfort, due to the stiffness of the tips.
