Excerpt: Pro: cheap price Con: almost no bass at all, I'm not sure if I got a defective pair, but the bass quality on these are extremely poor. You get what you pay for I suppose, but I would have expected more out of a pair of sony earbuds, even if they were $9.99.
Excerpt: For some reason Sony thinks the specs for this new model (E9LP) are exactly the same as the E10LP's which sounded fantastic. At least be decent enough to admit the newer models are completely and utterly inferior to the older ones.
Summary: I tried everything I could do to get these headphones to sound even decent. I am using them with a Sony MP3 player that has some equilizer settings and TrueBass response feature. Nothing I tried could get any kind of bass sound out of these headphones. They sound as cheap as the price.
Excerpt: On offer in store at £5. I bought some to replace a very similar looking pair that came bundled with a Sony portable CD player I bought years ago. They are nowhere near as good. Hollow sounding with weak bass - no better sounding than pound shop ones.
Summary: Sound quality is like cheap Chinese products. No Bass whatsoever. I had Sony MDR E818LP which were excellent quality with superb bass. I bought this one expecting similar quality but I am disappointed with the sound quality. Also the build quality is not so good. The cord is flimsy.
Summary: What a let-down from Sony. I've been buying their basic earphones for many years in preference to several other brands which I've tried and found to be lacking in the bass department. These earphone are atrocious. Fisher Price would be ashamed to market these for five year-olds.
Summary: Hi. To be honest I bought this earphones as my replacement for MDR-E 818 which were very good. But this one I have to sadly say are really poor. I think that Sony audio equipment is very good in general and I have a few Sony electronics which I'm very happy with, but this earphones are well below...
