This is a following up and review for these earphones.

I did in fact get the black ones that I ordered; using the trick I posted a few days ago. Shipping was quick and prompt.Usual packing with popcorn and invoice.

The earphones come pre-fitted with the ear foamies and also comes with a handy travel pouch. I can definitely use this to protect my earphones and prevent the loss of my ear foamies.

Sound: Wow. I am amazed at the sound quality. I think they sound better than the stock iPod earphones that originally came with my 2nd gen Shuffle. The retail price of $19.99 sounds about right for these earphones. I wouldn't complain if I bought these for $20.

Fit: The buds are quite large so these might not fit really well for people with small ear canals. Luckily they fit snug in my ears and feel comfortable.

Design: I like the slimline design of these earphones. They look great and the color helps distinguish you from the iPod crowd (even though I am using a Shuffle. lol). The cable is the standard white color and is 4 feet in length. Long enough to put your MP3 player in your pocket or integrated pocket in your backpack/jacket/etc. Let's hope the cable doesn't suffer from sweat like the Sony MDR-EX51's.

Overall Rating: 9/10 for budget headphones.

If you buy two, total price with shipping is the same cost as one pair at retail price. There are only four colors left as of right now. =(

Ok, I found a little trick to get the black ones.

1. First click the link provided by DealsPlus. It should take you to the main page with a bunch of banners and ads.
2. Click the banner that says "March Mania." It will take you to a page with all their sale stuff.
3. Click on the "Info" button for the EP-480 headphones.
4. On the info page, you will notice there are only four color choices in the drop-down menu. Next, click "Earphones" in the links column to the left.
5. A page with all their earphones will open. Click the EP-480 picture.
6. Now Black is available in the drop down menu instead of just the four listed by going directly to the EP-480 page.

Now I do not know if you will actually get the black ones but I ordered them with another color anyway. If I get them, I'll let you guys know.
