Summary: I bought these because the sound of the wind I could hear during cycling while wearing headphones was annoying me and I figured I might as well give IEMs a try instead of buying another pair of headphones, however I did not want to spend a lot of money on something I might not find comfortable.
Summary: I bought these because I previously had some Yamaha EPH20 In-Ear Headphone which I was happy with but did not suite my for the large variety of music I listen to. First I will compare between the Yamaha and Sony, both brands I trust greatly for budget ear buds.
Pros: Satisfying controlled bass, good sounding but not great mids( needs eq), Treble is pretty good and cymbals come with a nice airy crash
Cons: cheap feel cable, build quality of the jack is cheap and nasty
Summary: Basically this is the EX10 with some tuning (in this case, making it worse for more money).
It has the same grainy treble.
Sony added "rich bass", which is really the same mid-to-upper bass as that of the EX10, but here it's exaggerated, even more bloated and boomy, it bleeds into the mids and makes...
Summary: When I got these headphones I was expecting something more than the ex-10lps, but what I got wasn't really that. The treble is very crashy, sometimes to the point which it isn't pleasant to your ears. The mids are alright, only sometimes will they be distorted by the other registers.
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: Just to clarify; I didn't buy these for the sound quality. I use these everyday, from walking to college listening to music, to laying in bed at night watching YouTube videos. As the end of the jack is right-angled they don't break either!
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.
