Pros: The sound quality on these are excellent. They work very well no matter what I plug it into. The case for these bad boys really come in handy.
Cons: They can be a little uncomfortable without the foamies, but then again foamies for these don't cost very much if you know where to look. The cord could be a bit longer, but then again they reach well enough from my front pants pocket when connect them to my cell phone.
Pros: These are good cheap headphones with some of the best sound you'll get without spending a lot more. I'veowed various pairs of these over the years and always go looking for them again. the case is convient and easy to keep them untangled as well.
Cons: yes the cord is a little short, but it's worth it for the sound quality. the only other con is these are becoming hard to find as they are out of stock here and many other places as well.
Summary: These Sony earbuds are a replacement for Sony earbuds I purchased over 15 years ago and recently accidentally destroyed. The original earbuds cost me about 10 or 20 bucks more than these at J&R back then. All I want to say about these earbuds is that I wish I had damaged my original ones sooner. Not only have prices come down dramatically, but the technology and quality of sound has been upgraded remarkably as well. These buds sound SOOO much better than my former ones.
