Alright, so I have had these for a few days and have done some quality listening so I can give my impressions and thoughts.
Before I get into some of the details I wanted to include the "why" I purchased these. I was looking for headphones that would allow me to hear my surroundings, this way if I am working and a co-worker needs my attention they do not need to shout with the fury of a howler monkey to get my attention. They also needed to be portable, and most importantly, sound good. This raises the question, did they succeed? For my purposes, yes.
Build: These are very well built earbuds. There is almost no plastic to be found. The housing is aluminium, something that is usually reserved for more premium earbuds or IEM's. Furthermore, they have a MMCX removable cable which is excellent at this price point. Speaking of the cable, it is wonderful. It is well braided and all jacks are very sturdy. The 3.5mm jack is robust, but milled down for easy mobile use. Honestly, this drop is almost worth it for the cable alone... not quiet, but close.
Sound: In short, these are decent in sound when you consider performance and cost. One thing to consider is these are not going to have base quantity as there is no seal as an IEM would provide. It does however have decent quality and extension. It is not great, but if you really want a good thump and punch headphone, then this is not for you at all. I would not go as far to call it anemic, but it is certainly thinner.
Where this headphone does truly well is vocals and choral music. Because the base does not interfere, it allows very impressive vocal separation. I have been impressed with it on this front. If you are someone who likes to hear your vocals upfront and center then you would likely enjoy these. The only time I notice congestion in the sound is in overly busy tracks such as Glass House by Kaleo in which there is lots happening through the varies frequency ranges. Details are lost. This is expect on a headphone of this price.
The treble on these is quite average. They extend well and have decent detail, however they have minimal texture and depth. This can happen when the lower frequencies are not represented. it makes the sound seem overly airy. It is not bad, but when you switch to a more high end headphone you notice (iSine LX for example, but that is unfair as they are 200USD)
Comfort: I find these very comfortable, once I got the right set up. I use the provided over-ear hooks and the full cover foam discs. With this set up they are very secure in the ear and I hardly notice them. I did my standard head-shake test, for when rocking out happens :) and they stayed put. Without the ear-hooks I did struggle to get a good fit and they irritated my ears. Something to keep in mind if you do not like over ear designs. Another important note: I wear glasses and they cause no issues with the ear-hooks.
Recommendation: Yes, I recommend them so long as you have a specific purpose for them. At their price point I think their sound is fair, not exemplary. The build quality is top-notch though which helps earn some value back. I would say this could normally sell for about 50USD and be considered fair. At 36 they are a good buy if you are in need of a more open design or if IEM's irritate your ears.
If you have any questions please let me know!! Happy to help out!

I have not heard those actually. My guess is similar, but these would have superior build quality.

These sound flat and boring. Yes, they are well built and I love the braided wire and they appear to be constructed of high quality material but they don't sound good enough for me to enjoy them. They will eventually be given away to some teenager who needs something to replace the stock headphones that came with their phone, but admittedly the Apple ear buds sound better.
I am disappointed and hoped they would be higher quality than they are in terms of sound quality.

I would not recommend these at all. The cable is the nicest thing about them, but even the cable isn't worth $35. Honestly, the $5 VE Monks sound considerably better than these buds. The mids are pretty bad, and the whole sound is muddy. Vocals take a back seat, and the open back buds try to make the bass extend, but fall short and make a boomy set of buds that barely stay in your ear. Can not recommend these at all, especially when a pair of $5 buds sound heaps better in every single department.

I don't have much experience with cheap headphones, so I can't confidently say if they're worth the price or not. They're well built and do look pretty cool. However, because of that long megaphone-like shape, they feel like they could fall out of your ears, so I wouldn't try running with these. The cable is braided with 8 individually wrapped wires. It has a rubbery feel to it and looks good, but those single wires are so thin that I'm not sure how long they're going to last. The button on the remote didn't work with my OnePlus 3T. But none of that matters because we're here for the sound, right? Simply put, these have NO BASE AT ALL. Don't get me wrong, I like bright sound without a lot of base, but these made me feel like I want more base for the first time. There's just no punch at all, even in electronica, where it MUST be. On the other hand, if you listen to rock/metal, the drums and the base guitar sound clear (for the price), without humming. Because of that lack of base, the mids are very clear, with good instrument separation. The highs are somewhat muddy, but, as I said, I like bright headphones, and what sounds like great clean highs to me, sounds "way too bright" for my friends. But at least there's not much sibilance, so that's a relief. Overall, I would call these earbuds mid-forward, with as little muddiness as possible (for the price) and with a great soundstage. For my taste, you could listen to rock, jazz, not base-heavy pop with these, indie - stuff like that. Abba sounded great, Green Day was listenable, Florence + the Machine and Bon Iver were very good. However, as much as I like their clearness, I don't think anyone will be happy with their base. If I was really broke, I could live with these as my daily drivers, they're absolutely not terrible, but.. they aren't great either. I'd give them 3.5/5 if that was an option.

Excellent cable but the sound is ok. They're also too big to get a good seal

Sound is good, but durability is suspect. Bought it for the removable cable, as that's often been a failure point for my headphones, but had an issue with the connector on mine.

Not bad, not good
No wonder why IEMs wins, these earbuds just lacks the isolation, bass and details. Not too bad consider its price, not too uncomfortable and fit well if you hate IEMs. The aluminum piece comes off when I clean it with rubbing alcohol, maybe the glue got dissolved.

Would not recommend to a friend.

Bad sound and worse build quality. I used them for only a week until the grill cam off the Earpad and I returned it to Massdrop. The quality of playback wasn't terrible for the price, but they're not what I would call true neutral playback like how others would describe them. The quality of playback seemed to chang based on the kind of song being played, which tells me that the EQ on these need some work. The rubber ear lobe mounts were constantly falling off too which ruins this product on its own. Without those rubber earmounts, you won't be able to walk 5 steps without one of the earbuds fall out. This is also one of the main reasons why people mainly use IEM's as opposed to ear pads nowadays. This is a bad purchase all around and I don't know why earbuds like this even still exist when you can get a pair of good IEM's at the same price.
