" ...  I just bought a cheap $15 pair and the sound quality is incredible - much better then these.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Owned previous models, this version sounded pretty much the same .  ...  "
comment
" ...  They're comfortable and sound like they should cost much more. ... I listen to a wide variety of music, so I prefer a flat response that I can change with the sound source's EQ when necessary.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Then the music starts again. ... "Next song" ding.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Honestly was shocked on the quality of sound as well as not being able to hear practically anything outside of the music you are listening to.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Shifting it into extra bass mode is fairly unnecessary for me, but it definitely pumps up the beat more and can potentially drown out more background sound. ... Though from my experience, the sound isolation is fantastic.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Sound profile of the pro is set to the bass-light mode. ... Sound compared to the Spirit X: ... For $10 more and with marginally better fit and much better sound for me.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sound quality is absolutely the selling point for this product. ... They really delivery when it comes to their technology for sound. ... It's really immersive and brings out every bit of sound that the producer had intended when in the studio.  ...  "

" ...  These headphones have a very nice build with good strong magnets to hold the earpieces together. ... they fall just short of what I'd like for volume, but they suffice.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I took them for a run the day I got them, and they survived the 90 degree, sweaty day.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Strong magnets helps holding the headsets in place while wearing around the neck.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Spirit Pro is definitely better than Spirit X and it sounds much better and quite comfortable for my workout sessions.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Love the magnetic ends that let me keep this aroubd my neck all day!  ...  "
comment
" ...  Comfort: Smaller footprint than the X around the ear and the fit for both is about a 7.5/10, fine enough for me. ... The magnet in this is nice when not wearing.  ...  "
comment
" ...  As for the product itself, it's very comfortable, even after using it for a few hours.  ...  "
comment
" ...  They fit as if they were designed specifically for my ears and they stay without effort. ... They feel well made and the sound quality is surprisingly good.  ...  "

" ...  PLENTY of battery life.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I have been through several charge cycles and the battery has yet to make it through more than an hour at the gym. ... I can charge them at night, put them in my gym bag for use that evening, and they battery is at 40% after being off for 8-9 hours. ... I've had them for about 10 days now and have had no battery issues with this pair.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Can't wait until the true wireless earbuds reach 10-12 hours of battery.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Battery life is phenomenal.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Very happy overall, the battery life if superb, have only charged them 3 times in the last week.  ...  "
comment
" ...  But you'll be paying for convenience, quality of build, and battery life, and not sound quality.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Battery life: Exceptional. ... I have these on more or less 8 hours a day, and I end the day with a good amount of battery life left. ... Even if the battery runs low, the charge time is very quick. ... I am pleased with the sound quality and battery life.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I like the audio quality and the long battery life.  ...  "

" ...  Comfort and fit: ... But both were an air-tight seal.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The magnetic secure is a nice touch and work well. ... However, they never feel secure in my ear, unlike some other earbuds I've had.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Very strong magnets keeping them together around your neck when not in use.  ...  "
comment
" ...  They provided me with a pair of spirit pros that are designed to be completely waterproof and will stay put no matter what your without is.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I had to switch out the size of some pieces on the earbuds (which they include), but afterwards they fit and held themselves in my ear with no discomfort whatsoever.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Didn't have any problems with them staying in my ear with the standard size ear cup and wings.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Sound: Mids and highs are very clear no matter which built-in EQ you're using. ... The bass is decently punchy but, sometimes the lows get muddy or distorted. ... The bass-focused EQ mode seems to raise the bass and treble, so highs start to get hissy at higher volumes. ... Songs that have electronic drums or bass sound fairly clean on either EQ mode, but "real instrument" bass gets messy. ... While the Spirit Pro does not have weak bass for its smaller drivers, the Spirit Pro sounds better and clearer with electronic music and songs that concentrate on the mids. ... In contrast, the Spirit X is bass-heavy, and its bigger drivers will not disappoint as you will feel the lows and percussion as much as you will hear them.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Sound quality was great with AptX bluetooth stresmkng, with the right amount of base.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sound is rich, while not being too heavy on the bass, and having that EQ mode, really does make a difference.  ...  "
comment
" ...  An incredible bass that you can't even get in a good pair of beats earbuds.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I did a direct comparison and the bass is deeper and sound is smoother. ... Deep bass (not just loud/strong) is the notorious weakness of buds, but these buds are better sounding than $70 Sony wired buds that I have!  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sound does seem to be missing a little bit of bass at times, that being said the mid and high tones do sound great.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sound is crystal clear, loud and there is an EQ setting that gives u some head rattling bass.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The sounds is full and rich, I can hear all the highs, lows and mids. ... Also the bass is heavy. ... I haven’t even adjusted the EQ for the super bass.  ...  "

comment
" ...  But I've bought headphones that cost twice as much and more than these and I gotta say . ... I'll keep using them and update the review if they go south later on, but so far they are really worth the money.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The advertised "dual EQ mode" is not impressive, it appears to just lower mids and highs for the "bass setting", and in my opinion, the standard mode has better bass and sound in general. ... The highs are good the mids are solid and the bass is alright. ... They sound better in almost every way with a super punchy bass (the mids tend to lack a bit tho).  ...  "
