  • Pros: Amazing sound, great price, extremely comfortable, very affordable.
  • Cons: Broke with minimal use (5-10 hours a week tops) after about 3 months, sound only comes out of the left speaker. They weren't dropped or stepped on or damaged in any way, it just stopped working out of nowhere. A little disappointing because I bought these headphones pretty much because of all the...

Pretty good, mostly

  • Summary: This used to be four star for me, but the earpads and somewhat the noise (which although don't hear that much anymore... still..) mess it up. The earpads are comfy, until they tear and the sides of your ear are touching itchy foam.
  • Pros: The sound quality is pretty good, and the cord is long (if you like it that way)
  • Cons: On mine, there is sometimes a very quiet low pitch noise. Also, the cord is easily tangled. Forget lasting earpads, because these ones rip EASILY (at least for me) on the inside of the sides. Also, when you turn your head, it can be a little creaky

Not for a ConeHead

  • Excerpt: To be fair, I have only limited experience with this type of headphone. The sound quality, noise blocker and headphone manipulation are excellent. I was also expecting unquestionable comfort but it is uncomfortable to sit through an entire movie.

Good headphones... but...

  • Summary: 3 eggs for Sony on this product. I have purchased many Sony headphones in the past and this is the first that I cannot tolerate for very long. I am happy with the sound quality but the cushioning needs more work... especially for the price I paid, I expected much more from this product
  • Pros: Excellent sound reproduction NewEgg shipping... so fast, it's practically there the next day!
  • Cons: They hurt your ears after only a few minutes. My ears hurt so badly that I couldn't touch them after 30 minutes of use. The pads aren't flexible enough or large enough for normal ear sizes nor does this product have a break in period. I have used them for several days. After each use, my ears are...

  • Excerpt: Would prefer more bass. Also, the cord is much too heavy, since I use this as an Ipod headphone when I am working out.

  • Summary: This is the first non-5 egg review for these headphones, and i was very hesitant to post this. I don't know if they need more time to break in, or if my last pair of 10+ year old plantronics were just so comfy my ears got spoiled...
  • Pros: These things sound great! The cord is very well done, definately looks and feels of high quality. The plugs are also very high quality and comes with the larger plug adapter. Again, they sound perfect, especially at this price point, very big bang for the buck.
  • Cons: My ears hurt extremely bad after wearing these things for even short periods of time. I played some CoD and SC2 last night for about an hour total just to test drive the sounds and my ears hurt so bad.. i couldn't even touch them. The next morning they still hurt.

  • Summary: This hugely popular phone has been around for decades, and for a reason: it offers a pleasing sound with comfort and nominal portability - and comfort. At higher volumes, there can be a certain hardness to the sound at around the 3k level.
