I had a pair of Altec Lansing Backbeat Extra Bass ($50) Earbuds for about a month and i liked them a lot. They sounded pretty good for what i paid. I returned them last night because i had a problem with the wire and exchanged them for these new BackBeat Pros ($80 at BestBuy) thinking they would be better because they cost more and because they claimed to be musician grade quality. After ten minutes of listening , i was very dissappointed. There was little to no bass and everytime the highs hit, it hurt my ears. I returned them the next morning and got the Extra Bass ones again. I wouldn’t recommend these Pros to anyone. =(

Fantastic Earphones. (I find the Comment above me highly untrustworthy as how could you talk about the product if you don’t know what they’re priced at and you don’t know the name of the product you are currently owning as there’s no Backbeat Extra Bass)  Highs are Crisp and Clear, Mids are Smooth, and Lush with Decent amount of Detail. Lows are not the most powerful, but it’s very accurate.

These are some very nice headphones gang ! Previous headphones were Sennheiser CX-300’s and they were very nice, weak on bass. The BackBeat Pro’s have more bass, and nice spacial character that allows you to hear mids and highs that are on the warmer side, but very distinct. I found the bass to be very good…not your techno, rapp set of phones with over powering bass, but just the right amount. For $79.00 bucks at BestBuy…its a no brainer and a steal !
