John Lewis Spectrum In-Ear Headphones with Mic/Remote
Great quality and sound
Bought these for my partner and I have to say they are great quality for the price and an excellent sound, also couldn't hear the music when in my partners ears. Great product

I wanted replacements in-ear headphones for my i-phone, so went with the John Lewis ones as I thought they'd be good value for money. The main problem is the weight of the buds, which means they are constantly falling out - even when I'm just sitting on the bus, let alone walking. The fabric cable also keeps getting kinks in it.
John Lewis own brand products are usually well designed and good value, but these are very disappointing.

I received these headphone as a Christmas present and expected them to be of good quality as they are more expensive than other in ear headphones I have previously purchased.
Unfortunately, although I liked the material encasing the wires and the sound quality of this brand, the mic button completely ruined this product for me. I frequently use headphones for jogging and it is highly frustrating when the music you are listening to pauses, or skips songs at random intervals due to the mic button hitting against me or my clothing. For this reason I would not recommend buying them, a redesign is definitely needed to improve the mic button.
I will be returning these headphones.

Great headphones for the price
The headphones give good sound quality, the remote button works with my Nokia Lumia and the cable tidy and case are nice and stop the headphones getting tangled. The only slight criticism, that stops it getting 5 stars is that the button on the remote is sometimes a bit fiddly, for example when I double press it to skip track, it only registers one press so pauses the music instead.

Okay product for this price range
I needed to find a headphones with mic, as my old one broke, so I gave these ones a try. The quality is good, and they are comfortable, although they are quite heavy. The sound quality is okay: it won't blow your heads off, but still have a decend sound. The cables are the non-tangling fabric covered variant, which you either hate or love.
I'd like to add some notes which the product deatils are missing: the connectors are standard 3.5mm TRRS type connectors with Apple-style wirings, so it's Left/Right/Ground/Mic. It will work fine with Apple products, and some smartphones which use these kind of connectors (like the Galaxy S3). Do note, that some other smartphones (especially older ones and earlier Galaxies) use Left/Right/Mic/Ground style connectors, with which this product is NOT compatible, as you will only get muffled/echoed sound from it.
The main problem I have with it that the cable is a bit too short, a few more cms would have been nice. Also the remote button is small and too close to your ears making it very hard to find and press it, when you need it.

A real disappointment
I like the weight, feel and comfort and sound of the earbuds but the fabric covered cable is what makes these the worst earphones I've ever purchased. I've had them two days and I feel like I'm untangling and unkinking them all the time. The cable is already breaking through the fabric covering and the remote button doesn't always work. Very annoying, I thought I was in safe hands buying JL own brand.

Initially attracted by the non tangle cable, these in ear buds are heavier than many others and that does give them a substantial feel. The non tangle cable was a bit of a disappointment though with the white plastic beginning to protrude at joins with very little (and not rough) use - I think the acute angle of the bend then interrupted the transmission as the mic didn't seem to work intermittently. The first set I had was replaced because of that without question (a plus) and I haven't bothered to return the second set because I won't be continuing with them. I don't get a good in ear fit on one ear no matter which buds I use. I find the remote worse than useless and still have to successfully answer a call with it! It's fiddly and uncertain. At the weekend, one bud fell apart and has been araldited back together. Sound quality is not too bad (I listen to books mainly so no idea what they do to music). Sad really but there needs to be better building of the corded joins at least
