Our take on the Kicker EB101

Kicker's EB101 earbud headphones make a great addition to any portable audio player. These ultra-light earbuds deliver crisp, full sound, and sit just inside your ear canal to naturally block outside noise, so you can focus on your music. The rubber earbud sleeves come in three different sizes to give you a comfortable fit. You also get Kicker's Comply™ foam earbud sleeves — breathable foam that conforms to the shape of your ear canal — for reduced irritation and fatigue over long listening sessions. The straight Y-cord features a black woven cloth covering to reduce tangles, and terminates in a stereo mini plug.

Product Highlights:

  • sound-isolating earbud design
  • 10mm drivers with neodymium magnets
  • includes 3 sets of interchangeable earbud sleeves and 1 set of Comply™ Memory foam tips for a comfortable fit
  • stereo mini plug
  • 54" tangle-free cable with black woven cloth covering
  • frequency response: 20-20,000 Hz
  • impedance: 16 ohms
  • carrying pouch
  • weight: 0.53 oz.
  • warranty: 1 year

What's in the Box:

  • Black noise-isolation earbud headphones with attached 54" straight cord (terminated into a 3.5mm miniplug)
  • 2 Large silicone earbud cushions
  • 2 Medium silicone earbud cushions (installed on headphones)

I love these headphones. I don't beleive one needs to spend $300 on Beats to get great sound, and the Kicker EB101's prove it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these to replace a pair that had the left one stop working. I really like these, I got the last ones. before order: low stock after order: This item is no longer available to purchase. The kicker website has the EB102's with a name Valid I believe.

Pros: The braided cord super log cord

Cons: My previous pair stopped working in 2 years of purchase. I took very godd care of them.

Good set of earphones. Nice fit. Decent sound quality.

Pros: Quality. Appearance.

Cons: Not sure If I would pay as much money for them though. Could have a volume switch. Could be more durable

They came free with my kicker speaker order but they are not as clear and loud as the i-pod headphones.

Pros: Clear

Cons: Not as loud or as clear as the i-pod headset at the same volume level.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

good sound quality, improved bass from standard ipod headphones, and were very comfortable, but were not very durable. earbud pads fall off easily when listening to music while lying down (e.g. listening while in bed, ear bud pads fall off when you roll over, not easy to find them, lost a few).In addition, the right earbud stopped working after 5 months of use. overall a decent value and good sound quality. i enjoyed using them, and they were very comfortable due to the different ear bud sizes that were offered. i assume i was somewhat unlucky with my pair in terms of the durability .

These are like having a whole system in your ears. The bass is amazing and even turned up all the way I don't lose the voices great product



got it free, but worth the price for sure.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

got these free with my kicker speaker order but the quality of these headphones are just as good as kicker speakers!! Great bass output, great look(cloth wires that never tangle) 3 silicone ear pieces and 1 foam set that mold to your ear which fits the best. The product is packaged very nicely and even comes with a leather Kicker case. Overall, great product. 1 con is that i wish they had included a volume rocker but I have an iPod Touch it isn't that big a deal.

these are awesome, the kicker products and Crutchfield team makes shopping the best I've ever had the pleasure to give my money!!!




Scott W from Griffin, GA on 4/28/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I never figured that you could justify $40 for a set of earbuds, I was pleasantly proven wrong(although i got them free with my order). These things sound great and the bass response is unreal i've never heard any like them. The memory foam earpieces are comfortable as well and hold them in your ear great. They also just feel like they are made with a higher standard, with the woven fabric to keep the wire from twisting, and the kicker logo'd carying bag for them are just icing on the cake. I would highly recomend them to anyone wanting a great set of earbuds.



Kicker Earbuds

NickW from Arcata, CA on 4/27/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These earbuds are very well built, but lack good sound. The rubber earpieces don't fit well, there is also a pair of foam pieces which fit better. The cable is cloth and the earbuds are metal which is cool.

Drivers: The Kicker EB101earbud headphones feature 10mm drivers with Neodymium Iron Boron (Nd-Fe-B) magnets.

Earbuds: The EB101s come with silicone tips in three sizes (large, medium, and small) for every comfort level. The silicone create an optimal seal to shut out external noise, allowing pure sound to enter the ear canal. Also included are a pair of Comply Foam tips, made of breathable memory foam. The foam tips react to body heat, becoming soft to reduce irritation and fatigue.

Cord: The headphones have a 54" straight cord with tangle-free black woven cloth covering Kicker's Ultra-Gauge cable. The cord is terminated into a corrosion-resistant, nickel-plated 3.5mm stereo miniplug. The small-diameter plug can fit easily into the recessed socket found on the Apple iPhone and other digital players.

Carrying Case: The EB101s come with a convenient vinyl drawstring storage bag.
