Summary: These are great if you're looking for descent sound for a small amount of money. I use these primarily for workouts and all day listening. I'm very hard on headphones so it's better if I stay away from high end models. My last pair were also Sony's and they held up well for the amount of abuse I put them through..mostly getting them caught while moving around and wearing them while I'm welding. I bought several pairs so I always have tunes to work and exercise to.
Summary: I needed to replace a set of apple earbuds and I was looking for a good deal. Unfortunately, I didn't look closely at how the cord extends from the ear piece. When I'm running, the cord hits the plastic of the earbud and is slightly annoying. I found that if you turn the music up a little bit louder it's not as evident, but I have to be able to hear cars around me too. Sound quality, comfort in the ear, and price are all top notch.
Summary: I am very surprised by the quality control even on such a low-budget pair of Sony headphones. It's a must have if you like the style and if you are a casual or avid listener. Even testing it on full volume on my Ipod, the sound is amazing; crisp, clear, and no static sound. It also comes with a pair of gray optional cushions for added comfort.
Pros: comfortable even after prolong use, light weight, good price, quality sound
Cons: headphone wires should be a little thicker, should use a straight jack instead of an 'L' shape
Summary: I'm going to get straight to the point and weigh out the pros and cons. The good: - Clear and high quality audio. - Comfortable...I can hardly even feel them! - Great audio level...what I mean by this is, whereas you might have used to turn your ipod up to full volume with your other headphones, you can safely have it at half volume and it will sound just as good! The bad: - Every time to move, you can hear the cord click against the plastic...a bit irritating.
Summary: .I sought an inexpensive product that delivered good sound and would endure through fairly rough use (commuting to work). This seems to fit the bill. My sound criteria is not that of an expert. I listen to a lot of talk radio and some music. I find the length of the "cords" on most ear buds to be inadequate. This product is no different from others in that regard. So far, so good.
Pros: Seems to be defect free, delivers good sound, inexpensive
