I just received my Pure Sound PR-800 earphones from Tanga. I've been listening to them side by side (back and forth, really) with the Klipsch S3 and the cheap Memorex EB50 earphones. Of the 3, the Pure Sound PR-800 are the winners. They provide the highs and mids of the Klipsch w/ the bass and presence of the Memorex. For watching TV (which includes a lot of music), I'd rank the Memorex (less than $5 on ebay!) above the Klipsch S3. It's really amazing you can get that kind of sound for almost nothing. For a little bit more than these Klipsch S3s, you can get the Pure Sound headset and have a much better listening experience. I use them watching TV, so I'm not moving around. The reviews of the Pure Sound are all quite excellent, but several of the reviewers mentioned the cloth cord makes noise while running/moving. I don't use them for that, so it is a non-issue for me. I saw one reviewer say he was surprised they sounded better than his Beats by Dr. Dre.

I picked these up at Black Friday at Fry's for 15 bucks. They sound.... meh. You have to position the buds in your ear correctly for a good sound, but how they naturally fall the lows and mids seem to fall out. Strange, I just got them, so I'll keep playing around with them. Right now I can't 100% advise them, even at the price well below MSRP.

I can't speak to burn-in, but I have problems with earbuds not generally fitting into my ear canals (tiny ears, I guess). Klipsch make the best-fitting buds I've owned, and the sound / noise cancelling is really good.

...ran out of space.

So, does anybody know if the bass will improve on these, after a lot of use? I see all over the net that people say that after doing a "burn in" (like 25 to 50 hours of constant playing), headphones usually improve.

I got some of these at Fry's on Friday for $17.77. I couldn't resist the deal, even though I had just bought some from the last wootoff (still waiting for them). They sound pretty clear, but don't have much bass at all. I use them for watching TV and movies on my computer at night and I really want that big, home theater sound. Unfortunately, the Memorex EB50 earphones that I bought from Shnoop for $5.99 or $6.99 for TWO pair (and can be found on eBay for $4.44 w/free shipping) outperform the Klipsch S3s by a mile. I switched them back and forth, hoping I could convince myself that the Klipsch would provide a better viewing experience, but it wasn't even close. Those cheap Memorex just have a much bigger, fuller sound. Now, I feel stupid for buying two S3s, without having heard them. I just figured the Klipsch had to be way better than a $3 set of earphones, but they not and I'm still using the $3 headphones, rather than the Klipsch.

These are hands down the best in-ear headphone you are going to find in this price range. I bought a pair a month or so ago the last time they were offered.

I have the s4's and the s3's are practically the same thing.

They come with 4 different sizes ( large medium small and extra small ) so they will fit anyone's ears! Once you get the right size buds, they wont fall out of your ear easily. I use mine when i workout at the gym, or am mowing the lawn.

Not only is the sound also phenomenal on these, but as is the noise reduction. When i use these, i can barley hear my 30 year old push mower.

I highly recomend them for this price. For 20$, and a 2 year warranty, you won't find a better bud deal for the buck.

I own these. They're terrible. They have rich sound for that split second that the speaker crosses over your ear canal before it uncomfortably smooshes up against the side or pops out.
