Nice little pair of earbuds

Crutchfield customer from Saint Louis , MO on 2/17/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've been looking for a pair of headphones for my tablet for a while. But I could never decide on a brand or type. Then I came across these earbuds. I liked how they looked, not to mention the favorable reviews for the brand and these buds in particular. And after talking to your customer support folks, I thought I'd give them a try. So far I really like them. They're comfortable and have a variety of buds to choose from so you can customize the fit. The ones that they came with on have worked for me, so I can't say anything about changing them out. They do a great job of blocking out external noise, have a nice rich sound, and I've found no lag or distortion so far. A nice pair of earbuds that do the job at a reasonable price.

lousy sound, lacking quality, all bass no highs or mids, cables tangle easily, sound quality is unbearable for music. I would only recommend these for a young child or someone who is listening to audio books or podcast.

Pros: free promotional give away, includes different ear tip sizes, fits comfortably,

Cons: complete garbage, horrible sound quality, cheap cables, horrible music quality

Meh, not so wonderful.

Crutchfield customer from Bountiful, UT on 1/12/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These came with another purchase so it's kind of hard to be too tough on them. But I compared them to the earbuds that came with my galaxy so and I would say they are slightly better. Not by much though. The bass is limited and they are just a run of the mill earbud in design. Not a bad earbud but I was bothering for something better from Kicker.

Pros: Better than what you get with a phone.

Cons: Not so great bass.

Accurate midrange

Crutchfield customer from Arizona on 11/29/2014

Got with a Kicker purchase promotion. Earbuds took some EQ to give bass some life but midrange is surprisingly accurate - giving them overall favorable sound. I like them

Features

Drivers: The Kicker Valid EB102 earbud headphones feature 10mm drivers with Neodymium Iron Boron (Nd-Fe-B) magnets.

Earbuds: The Valid EB102s 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 55" straight cord with tangle-free black woven, Kevlar-reinforced cloth covering Kicker's Ultra-Gauge cable. A sliding yoke improves the fit and comfort. The cord is terminated into an angled, 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. The angled plug design improves reliability because it reduces stress on the cord.

Specifications:

  • Frequency Response: 27Hz-19kHz
  • Sensitivity (dB/1mW): 103dB
  • Nominal Impedance: 16 ohms
  • Weight: 0.53 ounces
  • Maximum Output: 110dB @5mW
