But does anyone know how good these sound? I am looking for some earbuds to listen to music with, without breaking the bank. Not looking for stellar quality, but not dollar store earbuds either.

Don't miss out on the Hifiman RE-00. The drop ends in two days, and they oughta be leagues better than these. Even when they were over twice the price, (and with inferior quality I might add), people were still raving about the value.

I've ordered two pairs, and I encourage you to buy at least one. EDIT (of the RE-00)

Also the thing about the wood, not my words XD. Stole it from a forum.

Careful pushing the HiFiMAN's. I saw those and chose not to join as, within the 12 pages of discussion, you'll find several references to issues with the bass response. As a bass-lover, I chose these buds instead for their larger driver and better advertised and reviewed, bass performance. Additionally, the HiFiMAN's have an impedence of 64ohms versus these with 32ohms. Consider what, if any, amplification you're using and on what device. I would think that HiFiMAN model requires additional amplification on a phone, for example, whereas some phones like the OnePlus 2 or iPhone 6 or later (I'm pretty sure) have the internal DACs to push 32ohms.

The bass complaints were from the RE-0's, the RE-00's have more bass than the originals. If you're worried about volume though, these might be the way to go.

I don't have an opinion on these vs the RE-00s since I haven't had a chance to listen to either, but the sensitivity of these are 97dB @ 1mW and the RE-00s are 100db @ 1mW.

That doesn't seem like a significant difference.

Well since dB are log-scale it is more than it sounds like, about 40% increase in amplitude and 25% increase in perceived loudness with the same power input.

That's fair. The question is do any of us listen to earbuds at those decibel levels? That's fairly loud.
