Summary: Tried different types of headphones of this type and the Sony earbuds are the best quality & sound for the money that I've found.They also last a much longer time than cheaper brands so you save in the long run.
Excerpt: Ive used these headphones about a month now and they show no signs of wear. Still feel and sound brand new after taking them to the gym, school work, and fits perfectly in my ears even when I have my Shoie RF-1100 helmet on.
Excerpt: These headphones have lasted me for the past 8 months, by far a personal record. Typically my headphones fall apart when I run with them and over use them. These have held together and even survived the multiple accidental washing machine/dryer visits. I hope that Sony will continue to sell this product for the one day they do actually fail or I do lose them.
Excerpt: These are seriously one of the best earbuds I have purchased for the price. I'm a 'DJ' that has mild experience, and I've been doing stuff with audio since 2007. I purchased over 100 earbuds in my lifetime, and around 25 different headphones. My most issue with earbuds are the cords get bad and short out, usually where the headphone cord starts. However, when I was in the store, I was trying to pick between the $19.99 Phillips earbuds and the $19.99 Sony Earbuds.
Excerpt: These are GREAT earbuds. I bought them at a store and tried them out right away, and they were amazing. The bass in them is really good, and the quality is amazing too. Plus, they are very cheap. I love these!
Excerpt: I've had these headphones for about 2 months now, and they are really great quality. I've had previous headphones like these from Sony, and they fail to dissapoint. Very good range, with a surprisingly loud and clear bass. If you're looking for an under $25 option, look no further than these headphones.
