" ...  Things I like about the Mode: The sound is nice. ... I'm not an audiophile, and I have no equipment or desire to test the audio output of these, or any, earbuds. ... I would say that through any device I plug these into, the sound is better than the MDR. ... I listen to a lot of podcasts and audiobooks, and I can also report that spoken vocals sound great as well.  ...  "

" ...  Sound is great, durability is not. ... If I very carefully pushed it back together I could still use them, but now the sound has gone.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I wasn't expecting too much for $40, but the sound quality of these Marshall headphones is surprisingly fantastic. ... Sound quality on those is pretty mediocre, but I didn't expect much from the Beats brand. ... I have to say that I was amazed to find that this pair of $40 Marshall headphones sound better than the $250 Ultimate Ears that I had.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Great sound, but the wider base of the hard plastic part of the earbud makes it painful for long listening sessions (for me). ... It comes with a variety of silicon tips but due to the shape of the earbud itself it was never comfortable.  ...  "

" ...  The actual audio quality is decent, but it is canceled out completely by the super noisy cables.  ...  "
comment
" ...  No visible damages to the earbuds, so I think the problem lies within the wiring.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Wires make noise when moving around which is kind of annoying.  ...  "
comment
" ...  it hurts my ears, and the cable is too short.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Sound didn't impress me and I accidentally pulled the cord to one of the buds too hard and the bud stopped working.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The entire length of the cable is noisy and transmits quite a bit of noise to the earpieces quite readily. ... The cord is also "sticky." ... The tacky cord also tends to tangle with itself and others better than other earbud cables I've tried (including the MDRs). ... The remote portion is at the "Y" where the two sides split from a single cable.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Positives include excellent musical separation of sounds, tight real bass, good volume, excellent in ear fit, average sound isolation (outside sounds still audible but are not distractions), and slightly dynamic sounding although closer to a neutral flat overall sound signature.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Has the bass to carry the energy of most hip-hop music while holding all the necessary integrity in the vocals and instruments.  ...  "
comment
" ...  - The strength of the product is in its clean sound signature, driven with a high level of vocal clarity/range ... - Bass/Low-end is disappointingly neutral and flat, closer to a monitor type listening experience ... - Music genre specific: great with rock and alternative music styles but lacking in rap and hip-hop  ...  "
comment
" ...  Bass is deep and full and distortion free.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Bass is significantly more noticeable, in a totally pleasant way. ... I listen to hip-hop, bass, electronic, blues-rock, and punk primarily as well as podcasts and audiobooks.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Strengths are: Midrange clarity, Natural balance (no overemphasis of the treble or bass notes).  ...  "
comment
" ...  A little too bass forward for my taste and the highs don't shine, but at this price point they are a good value.  ...  "
