Summary: I just purchased these headphones today because my old pair was destroyed in the washer.. I would have to say I find these headphones fairly standard. I like the design and the construction seems to be okay. The sound quality on the other hand is not the best, but it does the job. Overall for the price range in which these headphones stand I would say they are GOOD not great for the money.
Summary: Second set of these I have purchased. The first lost sound in one ear after about 6 months, but I use them daily and probably could treat them better. I have had the same thing happen with other (more expensive) headphones. Comfortable and the cords are the same length for both ears (I HATE it when the cords are different lengths and they never tell you on the packaging so you only find out after buying them)
Summary: Got a pair of these as a gift from my aunt and was pretty impressed with how comfortable they are. I use my iPod Touch for music on average about 4-5 hours a day and never made my ears sore or strained. However, the cord gets tangled often and that caused it to start cracking in places. That in turn made it catch and tangle more and about a month later there's a major short and the left ear bud is usually doesn't play sound.
Summary: These are the first ear buds I ever had that don't fall off my ears. I realized all my previous ones had been too big so I was looking for as small buds as possible. And these do work for me. They come with 3 different sizes of buds and I use the smallest ones. I wouldn't mind having one even smaller size but I am happy with these too. I am not an expert on sound quality but I don't have anything to complain about. I think they are very good.
Excerpt: At the Sony Outlet store, I could not beat the price - $13.00 ($15 with 30% off) I'm curious to see what the retail price will be. So far, I like the sound for a throw-away pair of in-ear head phones. For me the big test is how long will they last. I have been buying Skull Candy's...
