Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Disappointed, these things are junk. They came bundled in with kicker speakers I could've bought elsewhere for less. I need two more sets of these speakers but I don't want two more unusable earbuds... maybe I'd better wait until I test the speakers, I could be in for more Kicker disappointment

Pros: none

Cons: they're not strong enough to hang myself with

Great Sound

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.)

Dan from New Jersey on 12/14/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very disappointing. There is almost no base coming out of these headphones. Go to your whatever sound system you have - home, car, etc.. and set the base to low relative to treble. That's the sound you'll hear from these headphones. Not what you would expect from such a brand name at this price. Almost any $10-$20 headphones outperform these headphones, easily!.

Pros: Slick/cool design and fit comfortably.

Cons: Bad sound, not recommended for music.

Not a great product at all

Edwin from Panama City on 12/12/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It seems expensive considering that the sound quality provided is not the best and the quality of the product itself if apparently seems not to be the best neither.

Pros: Small and portable

Cons: poor sound quality and product quality itself seems not to be the best
