Let me start with this, you get what you paid for. My first impressions were that they were really compact, they're not foldable or anything but they're so small you can just toss them in your backpack. The style reminds me of early Walkman headphones but instead of aluminum components it's 100% plastic.
The sound compared to Apple's Earpods is dry with a little bit lower quality sound.
How different songs sound with these: Heavy bass songs like the The Rolling Stones' "Paint it Black" is downplayed, meaning the bass of the drums and bass guitar don't sound as good as the absolutely could. Surprisingly, Heavy Industrial songs like Marilyn Manson's "This is the New Sh*t" sounds rather good and gritty, so that is a nice positive. More R&B songs sounds pretty decent, the vocals are a little bit overpower by the bassline sound, but does not make the songs sound as bad as you'd think.
Over all, I am happy with these, I will be using them when I don't want to use earbuds but still want to listen to music with light and portable headphones.

It has very good sound quality. The D-Shape Fits Over your ear to cancel out all noise. The jack could be better fortified. I had my pair for a month of continuous use and I treated it very delicately, but somehow the jack messed up internally and now my right ear has no sound. It's great for gaming.
