  • Summary: This headset is fantastic for roller blading and having the music very loud so you can bust a move. Much better than those tiny earphones that come with the Nano.

  • Summary: The Sony MDRG42LP's are an entry-level model into Sony's Streetsyle line. I only picked thiso ne up for comparison into some streetstyle 'phones by Philips. These were the worst by far. The sound quality is best described as lazy, weak, fake, unnatural, lame excuse of a headphone regardless of price ever. The only shining part is the bass, and even THAT is on the bommy side and doesn't have very much extension to speak of. The mids are fake-sounding and unnatural.

  • Excerpt: "I got these primarily for use with my computer, and because they were on offer at Richer Sounds for the princely sum of £5. At that price, even if they were not the best headphones in the world, I could hardly complain. -------------- Advantages ----------- They are cheap and seem well made. I have had these for some time and have had no problems with them. They are stable when I have gone out running in them. Sound quality is suprisingly ...
  • Pros: Cheapo headphones  -  but not a cheapo sound !
  • Cons: The fitting .  Lack of a 5mm jack plug .

Sony : une grande marque

Alonsa, Ciao
15 July 2008
  • Summary: Sony est une marque réputée pour sa qualité et sa fiabilité et globalement, ce mini-casque ne déroge pas à la règle. Je l'utilise depuis maintenant 6 ou 7 mois avec mon PC et mon Ipod parce que les écouteurs de ce dernier sont nazes, du moins à mon goût, alors je souhaitais trouver un casque qui couvrirait bien l'oreille afin de bloquer au maximum possible les sons extérieurs (comme le train ou le métro) et qui reproduirait un son convenable où les basses et les aigus...
  • Pros: Qualité du son très bonne, cache bien les bruits extérieurs
  • Cons: Fait mal à l'oreille si on le porte trop longtemps
