Excerpt: If you are out of budget, but wants to have a headphone that is durable, not sensitive and have extreme sounds quality, you should check out Sony MDR E10LPH Headphones. I discover this headphones when I was checking out a new CD at Music One, a music store.
Sony Mdr-E10Lp/Pblu Headphones - Fashion Earbuds (Blue)
25 July 2014
Excerpt: I Recently bought the Sony Mdr-E10Lp/Pblu Headphones - Fashion Earbuds (Blue) because I broke my old JVC HA F130A Gumy phones - Headphones (ear-bud) - Peppermint Blue that I bought and reviewed a long time ago.
Summary: Foam ear covers wear out or are easily stripped off when handling or stowing. These foam covers are so inexpensive Sony should ship them with several pairs of these foam covers. Maybe someone sells the covers by the gross?
Pros: Right angled plug makes it easy to wrap cord around mp3 player when stowed... straight plugs will eventually break when stowed or must be removed each time, wearing out the jack and wasting time. Foam covers for phones help them to seal and conform to average sized ears, very comfortable. Phone is slightly tear drop shaped and has an angled boot toward cord so it is virtually impossible to put them in the wrong ears and they fit better with the shape. Cord length is p...
Summary: For the avid music listener, buy them in pairs, especially if you like them a lot. I intend on buying these for as long as they are made after having gone through 7 pairs in the past 8 months of other earbuds.
Pros: Not often would I give earphones such a strong rating, but these are simply perfect in every facet. They fit my ears just right, they aren't loose, nor too tight. The sound isn't harsh and the cord doesn't try to rip them out of my ear. Sony did something right here, because these are likely my new earphones of choice.
Cons: As with all earbuds, durability is atrocious if you use them even semi-frequently.
Summary: Aside from the small issues mentioned above these earbuds are great. The cord slide problem is an easy fix with a small bit of silicon tubing and most headphones at this price point don't have this feature.
Pros: These headphones have amazing sound clarity for inexpensive headphones. The sound reproduction is far superior than standard Apple iPod earbuds but these earbuds cost a third of the price. The cord is about 3.5 ft long so you can put your iPod or phone in your hip pocket and still listen to your music and move around comfortably.
Cons: Earbuds are smaller that iPod earbuds and fall out my ear easily, they come with foam pads but I prefer not to use foam pads. These earbuds do not come with a cord slide, so they might become tangled easily.
Cons: The cord is too short for tall people, however that doesn't even matter since even if they reach your ears they're guaranteed to fall out within seconds. Can't run, can't work, can't move your head without these things falling out.
Summary: If you like wearing your ear buds upside-down, then these are for you, although you might get some strange looks.
Pros: Price is right. Frequency response is sharp and superior to typical generic ear buds.
Cons: These headphones do provide the 18Hz bass as in the description, however they fall too far from the ear canal to hear it correctly. They are small enough to turn upside down into the fold of your ears which corrects the deception of lacking bass, and surprisingly still fit comfortably, however I would prefer not to have to do this.
