Rated 4.8 out of 5áby 4
Rated 4 out of 5áby Desrobinson Fantastic sound, fantastic value.
What an amazing set of headphones for an amazing price. I'm not usually a fan of in-ear headphones but for a penny less than tenner what is there not to like.
They cover the sound spectrum really well. Sound stage is quit good. You can alter the depth of bass by adjusting the position of phones in both ears. This will be down to a bit of experimentation. I'm hearing my music in a different quality of light.
I didn't give an 'excellent' overall rating because the sound of the leads rubbing against clothing is transferred to the headphones which can spoil listening pleasure, especially while walking. Some experimenting with lead positioning is required.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Stevo BARGAIN UPGRADE!
These headphones are awesome.
I'm not a fan of MP3's as the sound is somewhat lacking, I use these generally to listen to the radio on my Android phone, while out dog walking. Great sound & durability & was very happy.
I decided to try them plugged into my Hi-Fi. The sound blew me away!
Deep bass, clear mids & crisp top end. For tiny headphones I couldn't believe the clarity & I was surprised at the volume levels they could handle!
Now for the best bit...As I'm a VIP Customer, something that costs NOTHING to join, I paid ZILCH for these. Even at ú9.99 they are Value For Money & probably hard to beat at the price?
This is a case of 'You do sometimes get something for NOTHING!'..Thanks Richer Sounds, once again, you really know how to treat loyal customer's.

Rated 5 out of 5 MUCH better than they have any right to be.
I bought these today just to see what a tenner would get me - I'm not an audiophile, but I know good sound quality, and I have high standards.
Plugging these into my great Sony NWZ-E474, I was immediately struck by the balance of bass, mids and highs. The bottom end (with plenty of bass dialled in on my custom EQ setting) is BIG, but tight and detailed with no flapping at volume; mids are clear, defined and lack any boxiness; and highs are crisp and sparkling without stridency.
VERY impressive overall sound, once the EQ is dialled in. Good open soundstage. Plenty of volume, but no meaningful leakage from the back of the phones. Well made, too.
In direct comparison with significantly more up-market in-ear phones from Sony, Creative, Ultimate Ears and Jays, the Altecs have immediately become a favourite - listening to the bass line in A Perfect Circle's "The Package", your whole head vibrates; but the overall sound is ridiculously good - at any price.
I'll be buying more of these!
