These are gorgeous little earbuds; I appreciate the gold accents and the fabric (as opposed to plastic) cord. They come in a beautiful case and are visually perfect.
All that said, they sound tinny. There is a noticeable sound quality difference between these and the earbuds that came with my iPhone and that difference is not positive. Even if you boost the bass these will still sound tinny. Unless you listen to a lot of teeny-bopper pop where you don't care about bass at all then these aren't going to cut it for any sort of long-term listening experience.
I was fortunate to receive them as a gift but I cannot recommend them for purchase at this price. They are wonderful to put into my purse and use on shorter commutes or if I'm walking around and just want to cut out a little ambient traffic noise (in addition to showing off my style) but they're not sufficient for any real music appreciation.
If you recognize the audio drawback and are still crushing on the fashion then I'd highly recommend them if you can afford them. But if you want something that combines class and sound quality then there have to be better options.
Pretty and functional
I love how these look, and in a quiet area the sound quality is fantastic. I used these on flights and the background noise of the plane's engines drowned out my audiobook unless I pressed the buds into my ears. The in line mic works on any device that makes use of a microphone but the controls only work reliably on Apple devices.
Love them. :)
I received this in my precious metals box and I loooove these headphones. I know previous reviewers said they were heavy but I didn't think so. They're stylish and I also really like the woven cord. I'm not sure I would pay $99 for them but they're great!
Pretty but uncomfortable
These were in my Precious Metals box, they are so pretty and trendy but the metal part weighed the earbuds down and it made my ears sore after 30 mins of wearing them. The sound is good but I just can't see myself paying almost $100 for them. I think I'll stick with ones that weigh less and cost less than $15.
Very beautiful...sound/voice even better.
Although the first thing you notice is how beautiful it is, these headphones have such high quality sound as well. My boyfriend and I do Skype calls often. The first day they arrived I used them to talk to him and asked if the sound was alright. He said I sound clearer now (I was using the iPhone 5s headphones before). Music using these headphones are so amazing as well. I absolutely love these so much!
