Excerpt: A problem I found last year when training for my first triathlon was that my old earbuds were starting to become unreliable - some days they worked other days one worked intermitantly other days neither of them wanted to play so whilst shelling out a small fortune on other bits of kit to make the...
Pros: good sound quality, not too much outside noise, robust
I'd be amazed if you could find better for the price

Summary: So impressed with these! I'd be amazed if you could find better for the price. Once you select the correct size buds (there are three sizes included) and insert them correctly, the bass is deep and smooth. The overall sound is detailed and involving.
Summary: I use headphones a lot. So after trying 3 or 4 makes of earbuds, I returned them all due to broken connections and eventually went back to Sony and have been very pleased. I've used these for hundreds of hours in the last 10 months and usually fall asleep with one earbud in and there's been no...
Summary: They were fine for just over a year. But as always they haven't lasted that long. Lost the sound in the left ear bud! I also get a lot of earwax on them (which is annoying). My earphones never last that long!
Summary: Very impressed for the price, bought these as spare earphones in case I ever lose my h1's. Very comfortable, nice clear bass and mid, sometimes struggles with treble a little, but still great sound.
Good sound, but poor design - Very poor - Irritatingly poor.

Summary: I bought these to replace my old Sony headphones, in which the right earphone goes behind the neck and connects to the ear. These things are a sorry excuse for headphones, as they irritate the crap out of me.
Summary: The best earphones I've ever bought! I purchased these in April of this year and still to this day they work perfect and the sound is amazing! I take these everywhere I go. Even whilst I was in Spain, I spilt some water on them and they still work fine.
Amazing 11/10. Cheap, most durable earphones I've ever owned and some of the best sound from budget earphones.

Summary: Amazing. Absolutely amazing! Buy them now. Stop reading this review and buy them. They are cheap, durable and have pretty good sound quality. These have lasted me longer than any other earphones I've used including Beats.
Summary: There's something that feels rather tinny about the sound, which has put me off using them slightly. It means I can't turn the iPod up enough to enjoy the full bass-effect of many songs, and some of the less bass-sounding songs on my iPod also have to be turned down... again less enjoyment.
