Summary: I purchased these earphones two months ago and they no longer work. My earphones typically have a lifespan of over a year. Sony fell short on that mark. Other than the fact that they are now broken, I was impressed with the sound quality vs price compared to other earphones out there.
Summary: I purchased these a year ago because I love the earbuds that stick into my ears, and these don't fall out, so I'm very happy about that. So far they've been great! Awesome sound, and super comfy. I use them daily, and the cable seems to be very resistant and haven't had any troubles with that. I've also used them during flights and they cancel out the background noise quite nicely ;) So far very pleased! Highly recommended!
Summary: I was impressed by the midrange cover on these and the clarity - some of my MP3s were a bit fuzzy on my old headphones, and now I can hear the base guitar and more than one type of drum. I thought they were good value and as in-ear headphones go an excellent all-round performer. The headphone shape fits my ear well.
Summary: I've used these on a gig. They work well, sound clarity is better than all my other standard earphones. Its nice to be able to achieve this quality without having to go all the way to high end in-ears. The carrying case keeps them safe and helps me not to lose them easily as I sometimes have to carry a lot of gear around. I've not yet used the isolation earbuds as I like to be able to hear a little of whats going on around me.
