Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I got these free with the purchase of some other items. Even for free, these are terrible earbuds. I've also purchased some Kicker subs, but haven't installed them yet, so I'm really hoping these earbuds aren't indicative of the quality of the subs I'm soon to hear. My fist impression when seeing them was wow, these look really small. I put them in my ears, which felt fine, but there was almost no change to ambient sound. It was as if almost nothing was in my ear. As an example, I have some other earbuds that double as ear plugs when I fly. I don't even have them plugged in, I just use them to limit ambient sound. Then I plugged in the Kicker earbuds and thought, these sound pretty bad. I felt like maybe I was giving the sound quality a bad judgment because of the ambient noise, so I left the room and switched back and forth with my other earbuds. Nope, the Kicker earbuds just sound bad. Sound quality is similar to a set of $5 earbuds. I have several other earbud brands, that aren't my favorites, but still sound far better than these. I would suggest buying another brand of earbuds, especially when these cost about five times as much as the other earbuds I have. I would mention the brand, but I'm not sure it's allowed here. They're a popular brand name, that cost me under $10 on sale. Even for free, these are really disappointing. Since I had read all these great reviews for the subs I bought, maybe I was expecting to much from the
Pros: Free with purchase of other items.
Cons: No change in ambient sound. Sound quality is horrible. The normal listed price for these is outrageous. Gives other Kicker products a bad name. (I hope this is true anyway, because if I'm wrong, then I've wasted my money buying some Kicker subs.)
