I love my music and I like it loud...loud enough that you can feel the music aka the bass. When I had my first Ipod, I couldn't believe the quality of sound these headphones could put out. Clear and clear up to a high volume.
I broke my first set, which was completely my fault, not a manufacturingor a durability flaw, and used some others for a while. I had forgotten just how good the sound quality was and was so disapointed every time I had to listen to music on these other head phones.
Wehn I got my new Ipod, I was glad to have a quality set of ear buds back. They don't stay in my ears well when I work out, but they are light and comfortable to the point I forget I even have them on if I'm sitting around or even walking. These are the best sound out put headphones I have ever used.
