Summary: I like these headphones, cord is a bit short for me. I keep the cd player in my coat pocket so, that is why I'fd like the cord longer. The sound is great because, I bought a Maxwell which sounded like it was coming threw an aluminum can. I perfer the in ear headphones for comfort those earbuds always fall out of my ears.
Summary: This was the headphone model that replaced the original equipment headphone for my ancient Sony Walkman (SRF-M73) and its predecessor. It has been on two dog walks per day in the rain, heat(sweat!!!), dropped, wires caught on tree limbs, and other thorough torture. Very robust headphones for sport use. Good frequency response. In-ear over-the-head design means you can use them while mowing the yard.
Summary: Have it for 8 months. Ultra durable, flexible, sounds good. HAve run with it in the rain, sweat resistant (wont stop playing due to ear sweat). However the sound is very weak, and does not sound good with my ipod... Sounds good with my high power PC audio but not with portable devices..
Summary: These are light and somewhat comfortable. As other reviewers have said they have VERY little bass. Lots of highs though, almost tinny sounding. If they performed better on the lows I'd rate them higher.
Summary: I'm a disc jockey so I think I know what I'm talking about when I say: Please pass on these horrid-sounding headphones. Had to get some good 'phones for my ipod and my workouts but definitely got the wrong ones with these. Oh how the mighty Sony has fallen. Absolutely no bass, even after I cranked it up on the player. Just a treble filled session at the gym. Needless to say, couldn't get the blood pumping with only highs in the headphones.
Summary: This headphone, though very light, produces crystal clear sound and respectable bass. It's quite amazing considering the size and the weight. It doesn't disconnect you from the rest of the world (when you don't want to be) by closing off your ear, and its sound quality is orders of magnitute better than those throw-away ear-buds. It's very comfortible, too, just make sure you don't wear it backwards. I use it with an Archos Jukebox Recorder and they are a perfect match.
Summary: I bought these ones with my Sony Sports discman. I always had a problem. When doing good exercise sweat got the better of my earphones. SO these made sense. But when God opens one door he closes another(sorry for the inversion). Even though these offer good waterproofing the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired. SO therefore the 3 star rating. The sound was not crisp and there was no great bass too.
Summary: These "sports" vertical earbuds are slightly less expensive than the MDR-A30G's and the MDR-A34L's because these buds don't fold up and have a corrosion-prone nickel-plated plug tip rather than the gold-plated tip. All of the criticisms that I wrote about the MDR-A30G's dated 11/12/00 apply to the MDR-W20G's as well. Avoid these at all costs -- you can't audition any earbuds before you buy them. They just didn't floor *me* at all.
