    I went ahead and and also purchased the JBL buds while they were on sale for OPO's Bday. I can now give a comparison. The JBL is definitely higher in build quality have far less cord thump. Overall sound quality is marginally better. You can hear more detail with them than on the silver bullets.
    Are they better yes. Would I get them if they were full price, no. The silver bullets are to good of a bang for your buck option.
    Also packaging looks awesome and high quality, but a pain to open,and getting them back in for storage/transport is tough.

    Good for you, congratulations and thank you for the review.
    I ordered the silver bullet with the 50% discount also and they are good for the use I give it to them.
    I only use them to ignore my co-worker :D:p:p:p.

    GZ!! I am on the Silver Bullet and i think it is enough for me. What do u think about the JBL? i heard are not so good in terms of materials, isn't it? Lot of people here prefer the Samsung's one.

    I own both of them as well. I concur with most of what you say but for some reason the jbl earbuds keep popping out of my ears. The silver butter ones have more "traction".

    Also I love the feel of the silver bullet remote buttons. The jbl ones feel too plasticky to me.

    They don't pop out of my ears, but every ones ear canal is shaped differently.
    I forgot to talk about the remote. It is big and plastic.also really close to your ear so it is impossible to see the buttons. They almost have to be big so you can feel as you can't see them

    You should get a slightly larger set of bud tips. Comply on Amazon is a really good option but they do wear out.

    I've heard that the sound is terrible from both of them. Feeling sorry for you. :( (joking :D)
    Sennheiser CX300-ll here :p

    Enjoy them ;)
