Excerpt: I actually got these on sale for less than $10, so thanks to the guy who probably didn't print the price correctly. Anyway, these earphones use a fairly large dynamic driver, which you listen to from the side.
Summary: Let me first start with saying that I am very picky about my personal sound equipment, and wouldn't touch those cheap and crappy earphones that so many music players come bundled with. Throughout the last decade I have been a great fan of Sony's in-ear headphones.
Sony EX500s, Walkman headphones for extra clarity & sound definition...

Summary: I bought these Sony MDR-EX500 headphones as an upgrade to the Sony EX082 `phones that came with my Sony NWZ-828 MP4 Walkman,(the EX082's failed due to a loose connection) So, I decided to go for the EX500s as an upgrade and the sound quality is generally very impressive.
Summary: I bought some expensive in-ear phones quite recently. They sounded good but the things kept popping out of my ear, and eventually one of the wires split. So I replaced them with these things. Half the price and sound even better. I'm not an expert, but as soon as I tried these I was very impressed.
