    Ridiculous price!

    Go to Target, Walmarts, or K Mart. For less than ten bucks you get
    better sounding ear phones just (OMG!!!) no Nook symbol on them. Tired of the continuous over-pricing of Nook accessories. My rating? NO STARS! which B & N won't allow!

    WORTHLESS

    I'm not sure if the two reviewers who gave these earphones 4 and 5 stars actually purchased them. These are WORTHLESS. There is absolutely NO base reproduction whatsoever. The midrange is tinny as best, leaving only weak treble. JAYS makes amazing earphones but they should be ashamed to put their name on these. Don't waste your money. You can get a much better pair of earphones for the same or less elsewhere.

    they're OK

    Sound quality is on the low end, but not awful. Comfort is middle of the road, my ears start to hurt after an hour of use. Really like the flat cord design. Overall, they're a little pricey, but they are the only headphones sold in B&N stores (desperately needed a pair of headphones, ANY headphones).

    Awesome

    I consider my self a bit of an audiophile. When considering this product, I reviewed the specs and read the reviews....with a grain of salt. The poor reviews just didn't seem consistent with the specs and I discounted them to user error and purchased them. I could always send them back if they were indeed crap.

    I don't usually review products but I was compelled to do so here so that you would not miss out on the best little earbuds I have ever heard because of some stupid reviews. I am not kidding. The rich deep base response and crystal clear highs are nothing short of amazing.

    So why the crappy reviews? Three possibilities:

    1. The reviewer had ears full of wax.

    2. The source track, MP3 or whatever, was not rendered properly and was of poor quality.

    3. And...the most likely possibility...The earbuds were not placed tightly in the ear. This set comes with several soft comfortable rubber stoppers so you can select the proper size. This is critical. The earbud must fit tightly in your ear like a cork in a bottle. If they so not, they will sound tinny and cheap just as the poor reviews stated. This is not a problem with the earbuds, this is a simple case if user error.

    Trust me on this. These little things will blow you away. Clear, crisp highs, deep hammering base....simply awesome. Just get them. You will hear.

    Surprisingly Great Sound

    These little speakers put out a great, clear, and pure sound. JAYS earbuds sell for A LOT of money, so these are a GREAT deal! The case comes with different sizes of earbuds, which is nice because I needed the smaller earbuds that it came with instead of the ones that were already on there. I give this product an easy A.

    Nice sound, great value

    Using these with my nook, they delivered clear, crisp sound. The multiple buds were nice to get a comfortable, custom fit in my ear. And the tangle free cable is a plus. Only negative - make the box easier to open! All in all, really good value for the money.

    Jay's Customer Service is Top Notch!

    I'm not an expert on ear buds but these seem to be a very good quality. The Nook sound is GREATLY improved when using these - like night and day. The size selection included gave me a really comfortable fit. Like others have mentioned, I was also disappointed that a case was not included. Also, with the flat wires these have, some cases available for purchase would not work. I sent an e-mail to Jay's, asking if a case was available to purchase. They responded immediately and sent me a case ABSOLUTELY free of charge (including shipping charges!), which I received in just 3 days! That is AWESOME customer service.
