These headphones are great. They fit in the ear like a glove. They dont cancel the noise as much as I'd like but also the noise around me is typically louder than the normal every day noise. That being said I can actually hear the music or videos over the loud noises around me. The headphones work both great with the volume loud or low. Although, they get a little too loud. I haven't been able to check out the quality with calling and using the mic yet but I recorded a video to hear how they worked. My voice sounded extremely clear. There is a lot of cord with these headphones too. So they aren't going to rip out of your ears if you drop your phone accidentally. Overall, these headphones are probably my favorite pair of corded headphones. I like that they come with a bag to put them in and the extra ear things for the different sizes an ear may be. These are great. I'm definitely recommending them.
