  • Summary: This is my ultimate choice for the budget,my 3rd one is here (lost one and broke the other one).Good overall sound and fit for budget plus reliability.The Bass is a bit overwhelming at times (not very sharp) but you get used to it after sometime.IT SOUNDS BETTER AFTER ABOUT TWO WEEKS OF USE.
  • Pros: Great Sound for the price , Bass ,Price,reliability ,built
  • Cons: uncomfortable at times (Sleeping), the base is not as crunchy as some other sony models, could be cheaper.

  • Summary: lack of high fidelity sound, bass it way overwhelmed hinder the mid and high, there's a mid hump bass, not good enough sub-bass, no punchy drum bass pedal. don't buy it, it's not worth it. even philips she3595 is so much better when using EQ in poweramp app for android. lol
  • Pros: great build quality
  • Cons: pure sound performance for this price range

  • Summary: I bought this at the Sony Store and regretted by purchase for the first two days. They were very dull sounding. I found myself searching for eq setting to get some high frequency response. But on the third say I noticed the treble opening up. Previously select EQs became to bright.
  • Pros: Kicking bass and smooth signature
  • Cons: break-in required

  • Summary: here's a weird thing about them: these sounds punchy and more enjoyable if worn around the ear (worn somehow like se215), if worn normally, these sound little bit muddy and mainstream, unrefined and lacks punch. i don't know why, but it's true (might not work for you, don't blame me).
  • Pros: price, durability, tangle free cord, isolation, loudness, bass, details, large driver.
  • Cons: sounds muddy before proper burn-in. also, doesn't sound as good if worn normally.

  • Summary: A little big to our ears. Mainly bought it for listening to music while driving but wasn't able to wear helmet for long time without hurting my ears. Other than that Performance wise it is excellent.
