    ATH-CKS55BK Solid Bass In-ear Headphones 5 5 3 3
    Brilliant Well i was looking for in ear head phones for a while, i bout beats by dre first because of the hype about them.....things kept slipping out my ear. I have the ws55i from audio technika and i was blown away. So after that i tried these i got them, put them in my ear and boom immedietly loved them. Fit my ear from the get go. really cheap for stunning quality sound. Highly recommended :) July 18, 2013
    Incredible Sound Quality I have had my pair for over 3 months and have had no problem yet. I turn my music up very loud (to the point of where it hurts my ears a little) and there is still no distortion! Incredible! I have a pair of $200 Beats By Dre over-ear headphones and these Audio-Technica earbuds have better quality than those! Strongly Recommended. December 31, 2012
    Great Headphones! Got these headphones a few months ago and have not been disappointed yet. They have some of the best sound I have ever heard from a set of in ear buds, and are amazingly comfortable. It did take a little while before I found the right ear bud size and position but after that, I have had no problems whatsoever. Great for everything from casual listening to intense music playing and recording. Overall if you are looking for a good set of in ears, this is it. March 8, 2012

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. The post itself does not actually move. On the post are different rings that hold the tip. You can place the tip on either ring to fit your ear.

    Will this work on Andriod devices?

    I've seen reference to it being labeled as an iPod/iPhone device, and i'd like to confirm whether or not it works with Android before buying a pair.

    Answer: 
    The ATH-CKS55 will work with any device that features a 3.5mm headphone output, such as smart phones and computers.

    HOWEVER, If you are referencing the ATH-CKS55iBK, the "i" in the title means that it is meant for "iPhone/iPad". If it is an Audio-Technica headphone and has an "iS" in the title, it is meant for all (compatible) smart devices, including Android handsets. You may use the ATH-CKS55iBK with an Android device, but will have limited functionality (i.e. you would only be able to answer/hang-up phone calls, skip track, and play/pause music. Volume-Control will not work).

    Thanks!
