Big MTX sound when your car's not around

Need a pair of in-ear headphones that deliver a healthy dose of bass along with clear high-frequencies? Check out the MTX Audio StreetAudio iX2.

Or use them with your iPod® or iPad® to play and pause tracks, skip forward or back, and pump up the volume when your song and mood demand it.

  • brushed aluminum earpieces
  • 5mm high-frequency driver and 8mm bass driver in each earpiece
  • 3-button in-line remote for music playback and volume control with iPhone, iPod, and iPad

Absolutely great earphones. Sound they produce is excellent. They are very comfortable to wear, can wear them all day and they do not irritate my ears. The styling is perfect for men, just like all MTX products. The built in remote works great, with no problems. Also has a well built storage case.

Best ear phones ever!! So far they stand up to the abuse of jumping rope at the gym. I don't own a smart phone so I have no idea how they will work with that. I was skeptical about the sound quality for such a small

Pros: Awesome all around! Best sound quality for such a small speaker. But they rock all around.

Cons: a bit spendy but worth it in the long run.
