Criteria Comments Rating
  • Sound quality Great sound quality. great!
  • Design and form factor Seems like a lot of thought was put into every aspect of the design. The volume control, play/pause button and mic are really great. great!
  • Comfort Comes with a lot of different earbuds to fit any ear shape or size. good
  • Noise isolation Using the foam tips keeps sound out pretty well, but nothing amazing. so-so
  • Durability After only a few months of light use the cord is already starting to come out around the plug... awful!
Detailed review
Most of what's worth saying is already in my comments. They're great headphones, but like my previous Ultimate Ears set, not very durable. Fortunately Logitech customer service has been very helpful, in my experience. It took a while, but I received this pair for free after my SuperFi 5vi set stopped working.
Another point worth mentioning is that the mic is very sensitive. I like to use the headphones when I'm taking calls because it's easier to hear than holding the iPhone against the side of my head, but when I do that in a crowded area the person on the other end of the call says they can barely hear me over the background noise.
