Summary: These are seriously good headphones. Crystal clear sound across the entire range with good sound protection. Great design, comfortable to wear, even for extended periods of time, they are perfect for out and about and the daily commute. I found them to be ideal for the train/tube cycle and they are light enough that you almost forget you are wearing them.
Summary: A truly excellent product. Sound quality is very impressive. Good bass without being ridiculously overpowering. Most outside noise is blocked out and they are very comfortable. These work very well with a wide variety of music. These are very lightweight but are also sturdy and well built. I didn't feel any discomfort or mild pain after prolonged use.
Summary: I have tried and tried to find headphones that look fairly understated (i.e. not Dre-like monsters) whilst giving perfect sound. I have some Bose Soundcomfort 2s and want to wear them on the train so I have been looking for something as an out-and-about replacement (the Bose's will remain the plane headphones). Quality: the unpacking exercise is Apple-esque.
Summary: There is no fancy packaging here. No celebrity endorsements. No hip and cool adverts. What there is here, however, is a seriously good pair headphones. As I said previously, this is all about the headphones here and I have to say they are perhaps my new favourites. The sound is amazingly good. There is a deep, rich bass but it is not too over-bearing. There is a mellowness to the sound that makes them a delight to listen to for hours on end.
Summary: These headphones are fantastic. I have a twice daily hour-long commute via train. This is every bit as fun as it sounds. To maintain some kind of sanity I always have music with me. I have small ears and earbuds are uncomfortable, so headphones are a must. These are lightweight and incredibly comfortable - I tend to forget there's anything actually on my head when I'm listening with them - with excellent sound quality.
Summary: These Sony headphones are just about everything I could want from such a product. They are lightweight but solidly well built, comfortable and really deliver the goods in terms of sound quality. The external sound-reduction is also excellent. I don't tend to listen to portable music, as I find the sound compression quality is usually pretty poor when compared to the original recording, so I tested these with my home music system: a Technics CD player and a Rotel...
