I really like these retractable earbuds for several reasons. Mainly, I get lots of compliments when people see me wearing them...the colors pop and make them stand out. Next, the sound quality is good...better than most of comparable cost. Then, of course, the magnetic clip keeps them from moving too much when jogging or in the gym. And lastly, the retractable-ness of the cords keep me from getting frustrated feeling like cords are everywhere. The length is perfect! Totally recommend!
