Pros: Good sound, and normally it can be hard for me to find good headphones that can actually fit my small ears. Of course this great design allows just about anyone to wear them comfortably. Retractable cords make them easier to transport.
Cons: Very thin cords suggest weakness to kinks and inner cord breaks.
Pros: Surprisingly good sound. Lots of volume, good bass, good for most types of music. I know firsthand its good for all types of rock, hip hop, and techno so it will fit most users needs. It's lightweight and the fit for the most part is great) Doesn't pinch and the parts that go on your ear is padded for comfort. Retracted, they fit great into most pockets. I don't notice they're there most times.
Cons: If you wear them for about 3 or more hours at a time, itll start to make your ear sore but its not majorly painful. The rubber on the clip of the headphone will start to come off with normal wear and tear. The cord has a habit of shorting easily sometimes so be careful about tugging on the input port. Also, the retractable cord doesn't work 100% percent of the time ( the box even admits it jams sometimes) but 90% isn't terrible. Also, i don't recommend them for sports...
Pros: Sony's made variations on this design for years, and they all sound really clear with good bass and give pretty good volume.
Cons: This new model doesn't have an L 3.5mm plug, which I think is a must because the straight plugs always bend too much and break too easily. I already had to take one pair back but they exchanged it no prob and this sets been working great.
Pros: I used a single pair of these for 3.5 years. I find it essential to have retractable cords since I hate time wasting activities like untangling them. The real pro for these though is their reliability. I've used them in the rain, dropped one of them in a water bowl, and generally kept them in my back pocket for over 3 years of solid sitting on them. Sure, by the end of that, they started to disintegrate, but the fact that they lasted that long under pretty much the wo...
Cons: For two summers, I worked outside and kept the cord under my shirt running up. The sweat eventually ate through the coating. This is to be expected however with all headphones.
