Well the sound is ok you have bass but it isn't balanced out. It is some what blurred out the sound as the bass will over power it if you don't have any wayto boost the treble. The design is 'unique' but is very oftenly copied by secound rate sellers. They fall out very easily as when you look at them they have nothing to hold them in your ear. These aren't the most comfortable earphones as they are just plastic. If you are leaning on them don't as you will begin to feel pain in your ear in a couple of minutes. It has almost no sound isolation if you just look at them you will notice they have got two speaker openings. This causes much of the sound to escape which is why people can hear your music. The isolation is also affected as the earphones are oddly shaped this is what allows the sound to escape as there are few pepole these earphones will fit perfectly on. Finally durabililty these have low durability as if you look you can find people with broken apple earpods as the long bit which hold it falls off or snaps. If you intend on buying these please don't as you have a better chance finding them at work, school, cinemas and other public areas as they are treated ver loosely and much disregard so don't waste your money on these go for SOL or something but not MONSTER. If you want quality and uniquity and you have money go for BOSE, Sennheiser, Shure or Sony's higher class earphones as these will deliver more professional sound quality and have better designs I hope this was helpful and thanks for reading!
