Great sound quality and the foam tips really dampen a lot of external sound. The silicone tips offered almost no sound protection in my opinion though. However, I appreciated that the product comes with two sizes of both kinds of tips. It’s also nice to have hands-free communication and be able to pause/start and control the volume of my music using these. The SecureFit, while made with a comfortable silicone, made these kind of a hassle to put on every time, but they are super easy to pop off by unscrewing or changing out the tips and I’ve found these earbuds stay in better without them (though I’m not running or anything with them on). Overall, I really like these and will definitely repurchase them when the time comes. They blow the other earbuds in the $10-$20 range I’ve tried out of the water and they offer ear protection at the same time.
