Vido's stock earbuds, which were designed with the typical MX500 housings, are highly hyped and overrated, probably because they sound unexpectedly good for their price. However, while I understand the appeal, I'm here to let you know that these earbuds revealed nothing new to me. I wasn't blown away and I would definitely put a few extra bucks for something better sounding and better built than this.
Still, if you're looking for something dirt-cheap and decent sounding, go ahead. You have nothing to lose, really.
Some of the best bass responses among earbuds.
A super-affordable price and a great starting point for every newbie earbud-enthusiast.
Relatively low-fi and muffled mids and highs.
The mid-bass gets overwhelming/fatiguing and makes vocals nasal sometimes.
Very low quality cable, with a J-cord style.
Might be uncomfortable to wear for many, given their bulky housings.

Comfort & Fit
I find most earbuds quite uncomfortable, and they tend to put pressure on my ears after a while. These earbuds' housings are very generic and used for many other earbuds, so there isn't anything special about the lack of ergonomics with these earbuds.
Lows / Bass
Very powerful and deep bass response, especially among other earbuds, and especially for such a low price point. The bass is mostly stable and punchy, and usually not overbearing. However, there are instances of bloat and muddiness on susceptible tracks, and overshadowing of higher frequencies by the bass is not uncommon.
Mids / Vocals
The mid are great for the price, but underwhelming when compared to slightly more expensive earbuds. They are relatively muffled and darkish in tone and overly overpowered by the bass response.
Highs / Treble
Just like the mids, the highs didn't impress me. They are smooth and easy-going, but also darkish in tone and lack resolution and detail. Quite a low-fi kind of treble, but people with sensitive hearing are not likely to complain.
