Rated 4 out of 5 by nathan from Great sound and build, but a little uncomfortable For this price point, the sound is great. A nice deep bass with clear middle and upper ranges. The shape of the earbud when inserted into my ears makes it a nice, tight fit, which helps it not fall out of my ear when walking or running. However, there is a somewhat rough edge (shown in picture) where the earbud rests against the back of my ear that can get a little uncomfortable after awhile. YMMV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RM05 from Good After Tweaking Initially I was disappointed with the poor fit of the smallest bud into my small ear canal and lack of bass, but after following a reviewer's suggestion to use the largest to fill my ear opening, I'm satisfied with the bass. One ear still requires intermittent pushes to maintain noise blockage. Countering the other reviewer's L-shaped jack disdain, I value this feature as I keep my device in my pocket. I also found adequate sound levels across two legacy devices - another consequence of using the largest bud. Too early to evaluate durability and since you can't edit a prior review, will leave that unrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AYKAYGEE from Good For The Price One issue I've always had with headphoens like these is that you can't get them to stay in your ear, and if you do they are quite uncomfortable. The rubber ends on these are pretty soft and I don't have too much trouble adjusting them so that they fit well. The 4 in 1 button is very useful for changing songs, and it's located pretty high up the wire for easier access which I appreciate. It also came with a nice pouch that I still use to carry them around with me. And of course, they sound nice. Overall these were a great value for the money! If they broke I'd probably buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VintageAerith from Perfect! I bought these headphones after reading a review that recommended them. I can wholeheartedly say they hit all the major requirements for me. They are comfortable--the part that goes furthest into your ear is squishy and soft, and the rigid part is small enough that it provides the stability without requiring you to have a very specific ear shape (an issue I have with every other set of earbuds I've ever owned). They actually do a great job of cancelling noise, which will be great for situations where I don't want my big clunky earphones. The sound is GREAT, and they're cute! Couldn't ask for more. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bill K from Above average sound with some concerns I absolutely love the way these fit. The pactures don't convey how perfectly the shape fits into the outer ear. For the price the sound quality is above average. Very good in fact. The cables tangle too easily. The earphones take a little too much power to drive. Noticeably quiter than most though the seal with the large cushions is good for me. The microphone seems to work well. No complaints from people if called. Overall recommended. If they were available through Amazon they would routinely sell out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ian M from Pros: Sound quality is the best I've ever heard from in-ear headphones. Very good price, only $30 for these exceptional headphones. Unique shape of headphones is comfortable and doesn't fall out of the ear like other headphones. Cons: Shipping said it would take 5-7 days, it took well over a month. Very hard to track order. Didn't even know the order was coming until about 30 days after I placed it. Order receipt I received was invalid on Harman's website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RyanB from Amazing Headphones These headphones seriously blow anything else in the same price range out of the water. I bought these and a similarly priced pair (not JBL brand) at the same time and the difference between them is ridiculous. I'm not the type of person to drop $100+ on a pair of in-ear headphones so I'm incredibly happy with these. I've heard some people say that the shape is too strange and that it doesn't fit well in the ear and while I agree they look slightly unorthodox, they actually fit better than any other in-ear headphones I've ever worn. My only con would be that the right angle connector makes it hard to use these with an iPhone 6 + Otterbox Defender case since they just barely fit. But it's very easy to modify the case so that they fit quite well. And the sound quality at this price far outweighs any design issue.

Does the microphone work with MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015, OS X 10.11.5)? I've had problems with other earphones with a microphone that worked with my iPhone 6 but not my MacBook Pro.
It would really depend on the audio hardware drivers for the MacBook, most earphones that have the mic function normally work with computers, be it Windows based or Mac based. There is no certainty that the earphone's mic function would work with your MacBook.
