Bought these last time and I'm incredibly happy with them. I'm very hard on earbuds so I always keep spares around. I listen to audiobooks and podcasts only - so I can't speak to their performance for music listening. The mic works well.

And they're pretty!

These are $5 with free shipping at Daily Steals (but only two color options).

I didn't realize how womanly my ears were until I bought these earphones. Now my husband can't keep his hands off my earlobes. Remember, this is not the same Bliss that Anna offers in V, but these bliss headphones will make you almost as happy.

Seriously, I bought these from Woot back in November and they are so darn comfortable. I wear earphones to bed and due to the small profile of these ones I can lay on my side without them poking me.

Are we sure that the ones on dailysteals have a mic and remote? There's at least 1 review on Amazon about a pair that does not...

Yes they are - I should know. Purchased 12, originally $7 + free shipping then $5 + free shipping - yes Woot! free shipping. Everyone I've given a them to love them. Except for my one daughter, who is on her 3rd pair, everyone else including myself has had no problem with them. She loves them, but when she drops her iPhone, thinks the cord is the way to catch it.

Like everyone else in our family, we all have small ear canals, and use the XS(extra small) ear tips. They fit great, and the angle lets the rest sit in the ear nicely. I just wish other manufactures would start shipping there's with XS tips. Nice cloth cables make them easy to untangle.

Best money I have ever spent on earphones. 3 for $20 or $6.66 each is not so bad. But free shipping Woot! to match your competitors would be great!

BTW, Altec does make other earphones without the mic, but this design does. They also make fitted earphone that you have to go in and have a mold made. They don't quote a price, so I'm sure they are out of my price range.

Joke may be on you if you bought them from Dailysteals! If you get them at all and they are not used and you get them before Easter you better hope you don't have to deal with Dailysteals crack "customer service" department.I'd rather buy the max from Woot and pay the $5 shipping.

Crombie and others who buy from Dailysteals I really do hope you don't have the Dailysteal problems that I've had.

I bought these earbuds last time they were on Woot and they work well. I ruined my first pair just last week, I wrap the cord around my mp3 player and it causes the wires to short eventually. They play both podcasts and music pretty good. I did buy an additional 3 on Woot today but I saw that anther post that they were on sale at dailysteals.com and I bought an additional 5 there. I would have bought more from Woot if I could have.

These are the bees knees!!! This is actually the second time I'm buying them! I'm getting them as backup for a set I got just before Christmas because I love them so much!

I got these for myself and my mom, who both struggle to find earphones that fit, are comfortable, and don't just fall out--these headphones fit well, are really comfortable, and definitely don't fall out! We love them!

True... I just called amazon.com about something else that I just ordered yesterday. They told me that when the package arrives, to write "refused" on the package along with "return to sender." You will receive credit for the item when they receive it back in their warehouse.

Don't open the package though! Just write those words and send it back via post office or however it was sent!

Got these last month and love them. I use them for both watching videos on my computer and making phone calls on my Android phone. The other person is clear and loud enough, and they say they can hear me good. Blocks a lot of outside noise and great price. Getting a second pair today.

I use these when running and I love them. They stay in my ear while still being comfortable and I am not bothered by the cords. I am super picky about my earphones since I am very noise sensitive. A minor thing such as the cords rubbing against clothing/each other and making extra sound is a big no-no for me.
AND the sound in these is great.

I've tried many different brands and few, if any, work as well for me as these. I definitely recommend them.

I'm a woman and I love them and I bought some for my son's gf and she loves them too. Good sound, pretty and don't fall out. No, they are not v-modas, but they ARE very nice!

Love these, the cloth wire is awesome and the mic finally works with my EVO Shift unlike my skull candy earbuds. My only gripe is they don't have the tiny little piece of rubber (plastic?) that allows you to slide the earbuds together when not in use to prevent further tangling. Otherwise though these are great.

The earphones work and fit well, but the mic button stopped working on 2 pairs within a week.

High end f-r kind of sux, only 20kHz, but for $5 for a $20 retail headphone, who's complaining? I have real small ear canals and most in-ear earbuds, even with the smallest adapters, fall out of my ears so I might try them.

Dont worry, you are not missing anything. I bought 2 pairs a few months back and both crapped out.

Does anyone know if these headphones work with the android razor? I bought a pair of apple headphones with a mic and they did not work with my friends android razor and i was wondering if these will.

You may want to check out the Wikipedia: phone connector(audio). The short answer is that the connector is a 3.5mm(TRRS). TS/TRS/TRRS are phone company terms for Tip Ring Shank. If your device uses the iPhone standard for wiring then it should work, but not all devices follow this standard. Also they should work on most device that don't support the mic. Again it all depends on if they followed the same wiring standard as on the iPhone. I don't know of any list that would tell you if yours will work or not.

One of my daughters has also gone through 2, but she wears them almost constantly, and is not easy on any head/ear phone she uses. Catching her iPhone with the cord doesn't help either. Even so, she loves then, and we bought several spares for her.

Wow - that was quick. Mine still say they haven't shipped out yet. Hoping for a status change soon (hey woot guys - if you don't have my color selection, I'll take any color! :-)

Well, woot folks - you are amazing. Just a few hours after posting this message, the post office delivered my headphones! (and the status updated to *shipped*, probably about the same time :-). Unpacking them now, and will be happily listening to them!

I just got mine today. Where is the inline remote? All I see is the mic with a little picture of a phone and a small hole on it. There's no button. The back of the package says "convenient inline mic with call/answer/end button.

I came here trying to find out the same thing, but I just figured it out by accident! The mic itself is the button; you squeeze it to call/answer/end. It also works as a play/pause button on my iPod touch first gen.
