These are good enough for most of my listening situations.

I, too have the Beats earbuds from my ReZound (my husband claimed them since I already had some Bose buds) and these, while they FEEL cheaper, perform just as well - and they're LIGHTER, so they stay in my ears better and are more comfortable. AND since they seal in the ears instead of resting at the ear canal, they are much louder than the Bose. I'm carrying them in my purse now instead. The Bose are better for when you need greater situational awareness (walking on a sidewalk, biking, anywhere you need to be aware of other noises) but for at home or work where I'm not likely to be run over or accosted, I like them!
