  • Summary: Decent headphones for everyday use. The bass is fairly good and it isolates sound quite well but the mids can be a bit recessed though not because they are overpowered by the bass. The hi's can sound a little faded. Otherwise they are a decent pair of headphones for everyday use.
  • Pros: Good Bass
  • Cons: Washed out Mids

  • Summary: Mine have just died, so I thought I might give them a good review. I got 4 years (I think) from them, usually about 3-4 hours a day commuting etc. All types of music sounded great in them. I think I spent about 30 pounds on them but could have been 40. I have even used them connected to my pc or laptop, they sound better than the old Sony DJ type headphones.

In all, these are great headphones, but don't last too long.

  • Excerpt: I bought these headphones a while back to use with my Sansa Clip+, because I wanted something with a bit more bass. First impressions were that the headphones are really well built, and feel like a premium product. They came with 3 different sized earbuds, and a little soft carry pouch. The flat cable was brilliant, and I only managed to get them tangled once in the time I owned them.

Not worth the money, and because of that I do not recommend them...

  • Excerpt: ==Introduction== I bought these headphones very recently because I fancied a bit of a change, as you may have noticed, if you have read my other reviews, I tend to buy quite a few pairs of headphones - Why? Quite simply because they are normally quite cheap (as were these, which I picked up for just over £15 from Amazon; which is a pretty awesome price if you ask me) they look great but also they are a must have for many activities - from sitting on your bum to running...

Do consider these when you next purchase headphones

  • Excerpt: These earphones create a powerful deep bass sound. They are a closed type, angle structured bud which are ideal for reducing sound leakage. Pros: The silicon material gives a great comfortable feel in the ear, the earbuds are compact and can withstand everyday stresses and not break. Aside from the good bass you get the price is quite cheap especially when compared to similar products.

  • Excerpt: I've worked my way through a more headphones over the past few years than most people do over a lifetime...partly because I use them for at least a few hours a day while commuting, and partly because I've got a bad habit of spinning them around my finger when I'm bored...it doesn't do the wiring much good! I've found that Sony models tend to last the longest, and of all the ones I've used, these are by far the best.

  • Excerpt: I bought a pair of these headphones off amazon about four months ago, and was instantly impressed by the improvement in sound quality in comparison to the ones I was using before. They were advertised as high bass, and they deliver. From the moment you put them in the difference in low frequency sound is instantly recognisable. They are also very good at blocking out external sounds which would otherwise detract from the listening experience.
  • Pros: Reliability
