Looks: They look actually pretty decent. I'd say all and all these aren't too bad of a headphone for looks, if that is what you are into.
Comfort: With stock tips, these things are horrible. Let me just throw that out there. I had to go get a pair of Sol Republic tips just to get these to fit right. After I did that, they fit decently. They would fall out from time to time.
Mic: Mic was decent. People could hear me, and they didn't complain about the quality of the mic, so that's a plus.
Sound Quality: This is why the IEM gets a 1 star. The sound is so bad. I'll be listening to electronic music, and a hihat will come and pierce my ear drum. It's not fun. Then the lows will be so heavy that it drowns everything else out. If you like heavy bass, these are for you. But audiophiles will not like theses at all.
So, if I was to rate everything on this headphone in it's own category:
Comfort: 4/10 (Since I had to use other tips.)
Feels plasticy and cheap
It's huge! like twice the size of a normal pair of earphones
1-star... plus 1 because they actually do sound decent.
Because of this design, the headphones fall out of the ear pretty easily. Most other headphones I have used comfortably sit in the ear and feel secure, but these do not. In order for these headphones to feel secure they must be pushed into the ear quite deep and it just simply uncomfortable. With the fact that they fall out and how far they stick out I simply do not like these headphones and most likely would not buy these again if given the chance.
Function: Assumption of a correct fit is being made with the following statements. These sound pretty freaking good. I have some higher end Harmon Kardon CL headphones, and these hold their ground (as they should) against them. These are less studio or monitor type buds and are made more for the casual/music lover. This means the EQ is tilted towards the dreaded "V" that make audiophiles spit in disgust. I must admit however, that I prefer this type of configuration for my sound. Yes, I do own flatter headphones (like the Harmon Kardon mentioned above), but I demand satisfaction for my brain rather than accurate audio fidelity (if you read any audiophile rationale for hating Bose, it's because they use science to make the sound "feel" better to human ears....isn't that the point?!). Yes, I do own Sol Tracks Ultra, Bose OE2, Bose AE2, and even bought Beats HD Pro for my sister. 99.99999% of people aren't audio engineers, and "hearing things the way they were meant to sound" is like saying don't drink alcohol to "experience the sober reality of life". Anyways, getting off topic, these compare favorably to the Bose headphones I mentioned, and I'd imagine the Bose IEM's too, with actually much crisper highs than the OE2. The SOL ones I could never get to fit right (same with the Beats), so I actually don't have a good experience with them, and just sit on my shelf. The Klipsch S4i is a good comparison with even audiophile votes (but of course mentioning the only "con" as the strong bass), and these sound almost exactly like them. So in summary, here's my opinion of the differential between these SL99 and the headphones/buds I have:
Logitech UE 500VM: +2
Klipsch S4i Rugged: 0
Bose OE2: +0.5
Bose AE2: 0
Harmon Kardon CL: -1 to 0
SOL: +4 (improper fit, so unrepresentative I'll admit)
Beats: +4 (improper fit, so unrepresentative I'll admit)
Koss DJ Pro100: +3
Klipsch Image One Gen 2: 0
Fit: Now, here's where the -1 stars comes from. I had to get the comply earphone tips (400 series for the SL99) to get a good fit. Basically, prior to the new tips, these headphones were unusable. I tried all the sizes they came with and kept falling out with even just me moving my head in my chair. The comply tips were spendy (got the TSX400), but luckily I got these headphones on sale for pretty cheap, so the combined cost of the tips and buds were still about 30% less than Amazon's listed price currently ($54). The comply tips were a MUST PURCHASE for me, so the cost should be tacked on to your budget. As a side FYI for everyone, the medium tips from the SL99 package was actually slightly SMALLER than the smalls in Comply TSX400 models. Changing out the tips also drastically improved the sound, which is reflected in this review.
I have used a good number of sub $300 headphones over the years, from Bose to Shure, all the way down to cheap Skullcandy and Sony headphones. I like to run and bike, too, so I typically evaluate products keeping their performance in these scenarios in mind. With that said, I definitely consider $100 to be on the more expensive end of headphones that I would consider buying, though I understand that many of you will place value in headphones that cost several hundreds of dollars. This review will be coming from my perspective of a more budget minded consumer.
With that said, on to the pros and cons!
1. Bass - The bass is solid. Other reviewers have commented that it's a little too much bass, others have commented that it sounds just about right. For me, it's just about right stock, and I'd rather have more bass capability than less, because even simple and inexpensive MP3 players these days often have EQ settings that you can customize. How hard is it to turn the bass down a little? Typically it will not be hard at all. But how hard is it to boost the bass level in headphones that are simply not capable? This is one of those things where I'd rather have it than not need it than need it and not have it.
2. Mids and highs - There is nothing to complain about here. The mids and highs are solid and will give you the full experience of your sound. Rock music allows for accurate listening of all the intricacies of your guitar riffs, and orchestral music is full and bold. I have yet to listen to a track that leaves you lacking in the mid/high range on these headphones.
3. Comfort - These are very comfortable for my ears. Again, this is something that will depend on your ear shape, but there are different sizes of rubberized ear pads you can select, and the stock ones that came fitted right out of the box fit my ears quite pleasantly, and I can listen for hours without discomfort.
4. Look and feel - These headphones look great. They are not gaudy and super flashy, but still attractive. They look like serious headphones, and feel like they are quality made.
5. Microphone - The mic is actually pretty good! It sounds a bit better to listeners than lower-priced Skullcandy offerings I have tried. It also still works, whereas on the MEelectronics sport headphones w/mic model that I also own, the mic simply died after the 2nd phone call I made and hasn't worked since!!! So far so good on the SL99's microphone.
6. Controls - The buttons work great on my iDevice for controlling volume and pausing/starting music playback, or taking calls. The pause/play button also works well on my Android devices (Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 3).
7. Price, if on sale - For under $50 these headphones are worth every penny, but as you go above $50 you start running into competition that provides either flatter sound, or other potential advantages over these, although again I stress that this will depend a lot on personal preference. Are these competitive headphones at MSRP? Yes, but the high bass levels will turn many buyers off that are expecting flatter sound at this price point. But on sale, these represent a great value for both build quality and sound quality.
1. Android - Android handsets now outnumber iDevice handsets out there, and yet mainstream headphone/mic combos STILL sadly provide primary support for iDevices. This is terrible. Yes, I'm glad the controls make my iPad happy, but for crying out loud, I personally have witnessed the market shift to Android over the last few years. I have friends and family that have owned iPhones in the past and now flat out refuse to buy another iPhone because of their limited functionality and variety of handset type compared to the wealth of functions and variety available in the Android world. However, the top headphone makers continue to cater to iDevices with their control functions. Ideally, since both support the same jack size, Apple AND Android makers could come to some sort of standard so it wouldn't matter. This would benefit Apple as well, because I'm NOT going to buy an iPhone just because I'm in love with their new headphones, but I might buy Apple's new headphones for my Android phone if I knew the controls would work properly. We are finally starting to see some good headphone/mic & control offerings in the Android world, but they are still few and far between.
2. Sports use - These stay in your ears, for the most part, on bike rides, but in running they simply aren't as stable as competing models of headphones that have more form fitting ear pieces, such as Yurbuds or MEelectronic-style models with two to three flexible plastic ear canal pieces. The constant impact over long distance will eventually wiggle these SL99s out of your ears before more sports-specific targeted models.
Thanks for reading!! Would I recommend these to a friend based on MSRP? Depends on their wants/needs. If they want strong stock bass performance without having to adjust any EQ settings in an attractive and quality-built design, I probably would put these on my list of recommendations. If they want a $100 pair of headphones with flatter sound out of the box, I would steer them elsewhere.
But if you can snag these on a sale, they are simply amazing, easily giving you $80 Shure or Klipsch quality sound for less.
