Audio-Technica ATH-CHX5iSBK SonicFuel Hybrid Earbud Headphones – Five Stars

Did enjoy the sound quality, however putting in these earbuds can be strenuous. A very good set of hybrid earbuds.

The only problem, it last him for about 2 months.

Had them for about 3 months and doing is intact and ear buds are comfortable now. At first they were uncomfortable after a hour of use but now they are fine. Sound is really good for the price and would but again.

Awesome sound quality but the comfort level could be better. The sound is well balanced, no i very the top bass or tinny hihgs, just the right amount of balance as should be expected from a audio technica product. The earbud are slightly on the larger side and do have some discomfort in the bud portion as they don’t fit in the ear hole completely, more rest on the entrance of the hole. The controls are simple and worked with my samsung note 4 well. The call volume and quality was fair. Tested a phone call with my wife and she said it was better sounding than being on speaker phone.

Really awesome sound and quality.

Got these headphones today and i am very excited about their sound quality. It not what that i expected the sound quality to be. These bud hurt my ears a lot. I’ll use these for couple of weeks and update my review.

  • Great balanced sound, flawed design
  • Great Sound!!
  • Five Stars

They didn’t stay in my ears very well. If you’re in the 15% that can’t wear the factory apple headphones.

Use these all the time for hrs. Great fit an the sound clarity is awesome. I use them and work and want to pick up another pair to use at home.

Yes, i did like the sound quality pristine as i expected from a reputable company,although the hybrid earphones tends to be uncomfortable after a while and it does not cancel noise as i would have hoped,but for everyday users who are not around such high noise as i, would enjoy.

My son states that once he ‘burned them in’ they worked great(per my kid – leave on low for 3 days whatever you play music/sound wise, then you can turn up the volume.

Sent as a gift, no complaints from a teenager so it must be okay.
