  • Summary: first of all, i believe, sony wanted to make hybrid earbuds for a better sound my expanding the soundstage, however the strategy failed. the soundstage has improved (the large size helps a lot too), but the isolation lacks and the sounds are distant (they seem tiny as if they're far away).
  • Pros: looks, durability, design, balanced sound.
  • Cons: poor isolation, poor bass, sounds tiny.

  • Summary: These are great earphones, and similar models are often packaged with Sony's excellent sounding and extremely cheap media players. If you want something cheap to stuff in your bag or keep as spares at work, you can't go far wrong.
  • Pros: Classic Sony sound
  • Cons: Lots of fakes on eBay
