Summary: These are my favourite "blue jeans" buds. They're dirt cheap and have much better sound than their price suggests. The insulation plastic is slightly waxy-feeling and carries very little cord-noise through to your ears (a BIG problem with my old Nuforce buds). The removable over-ear hooks are comfortable and significantly ease routing the cords over your ears to reduce even more cord-noise.
Pros: * Sound is reasonably good, * Comfortable, * Very little cord-noise, * My most resilient phones to date, * Useful short cord-length + extension, * Stylish
Cons: * Sound is not quite as good as my old Nuforce buds, * Comes with a silly, bulky cord-case., * Comes with a fiddly lapel-clip that doesn't work well and can pinch cords if you're not careful
Summary: This is my 2nd set of loop style headphones and I must say I love these things. Extremely durable, quality sound is excellent and they sit comfortably. My 1st set lasted 3 years and I'm an active user between my daily gym sessions of heavy lifting & running, out door events to everyday listening. A-lass after all these years of abuse they've died out due to the left side blowing out. I had to get another pair when I saw the pricing.
Summary: As a half-marathoner, I have been searching for earbuds that don't fall out of my ears for some time. In the last six months alone, I have been through half a dozen types of earbuds (Sony, J-buds, Coby, and others), but once those earbuds started to dampen with sweat after the first mile or so, I was constantly having to put them back in. These earbuds, on the other hand, are great!
Summary: Ive got this product a few days ago. After using it once or twice I can say that it seems to be a great product. Sound is awesome, better than any other headphones I have (in same price range). Has great sub buffers, fits great and includes customizable parts for different ears. Only disadvantage is the cord length. The regular cord is too short and the extension cord makes it too long. But not a big deal at all. I'd say 8.5 out of 10.
Summary: This is my second pair - I washed the first one by mistake with my shorts in the machine - it still worked after it came out! But obviously it had been damaged and the sound wasn't the same - so i bought the same thing again. The sound is excellent and the ear support as well as the plugs make sure that these things don't pop out while your'e running or riding a bike (both of which I do on a regular basis). Worth the money.
Summary: I usually do not do reviews, but for these i will. i purchased these headphones over 2 years ago, and their sound quality is still great. i'm quite surprised that i found these still for sale, but then again mine lasted this long so sony is doing something right. when i purchased these i was looking for comfortable headphones with some sound quality that would bring my music to a whole new level. and thats what i got.
Summary: I tried many different headphones for running. I was looking for 3 qualities: comfort, staying in/on the ear, and volume (not so much quality, just loudness). These headphones fit the bill for all three better than any other pair I tried. In fact, I bought a second pair. One for day to day use without the hooks, the other I use with the hooks for running.
Summary: The headphones are some to be used with a grain of salt, because you have to know how. They have a certain way to sit in and around your ears specifically. Once in place though, the sound quality it's incomparable for active headphones. Even the price is dwarfed in regards to over quality. You might honestly expect to get something like this from a mid range price of noise cancelling ear buds.
