Pros:

1. Sleek and stylin' with high "Wow" factor
2. Can be used for MP3 players, iPhones and Blackberries, as well as computers and laptops (with 3.5mm jacks)
3. Multi-function button allows you to answer phone calls, pause music or skip tracks.
4. Microphone allows for hands-free phone capability.
5. 16 dB noise isolation allows for enjoyable music without completely shutting out all external noise.
6. Great sound, especially treble and vocals.
7. Adequate cord length for portable devices.
8. Comes with carry case and three sizes of silicone ear cushions (also sold separately)
9. Instruction booklet in comprehensible English
10. Makes Whitney Houston's comeback album sound good.


Cons:

1. Hard to tell right from left in low light situations (the red color indicator could be a lot redder)
2. Multi-function button doesn't work on desktop computers (works fine on iPods)
3. Bass capability a little weak.
4. Smallest ear cushion is a little too big for small ears, requiring some pushing and twiddling to get the best sound.
5. A tad pricey at nearly the cost of an iPod
6. Case has a nice shape, but plastic is thin and doesn't go with the image.
7. Makes Whitney Houston's comeback album sound good.


Conclusion:

High end earphones with great sound for portable devices, and useful microphone for hands-free phone use.

If you're going to sport high quality gadgets, you might as well get great earphones to match.

While working out and sweating, they stayed put.  The microphone is great and it works awesome with my cell phone.  The …

The Ultimate Ears MetroFi 220vi Earphones are the best sounding earphones I have ever owned. They were very easy to fit since they come with three different sizes of ear cushions. I can hardly tell I have them in my ear. Unlike other earplugs I have tried, these do stay securely in your ear canal. The sound is incredible and rich. One major plus is that when I use it with my iPod Touch, the 3.5mm jack fits securely in and it does not pop out. I have had issues with other earphones that the jack …
