Great bass and extremely durable!

Dizzy D, Amazon

  • Summary: Had these for almost 2 years now and they have served me very well. As the name suggests they have a great heavy bass which is good if that's what you're looking for. They also have 3 different sized buds which are good for fitting different shaped ears. The little soft zip case they come with is still used to this day and the protection it provides is what has allowed these headphones to last me for so long.

Reproduced Review to include the Verified Amazon Purchase

  • Summary: I did not realise I had another Amazon account and that it was there that I bought these headphones. Here is the review I wrote under the other account with the Amazon Verified Purchase missing. It will be included on this review because I can see the box below. I read a lot about Bose and a lot about Sennheiser, two types I have never tried. I own these ones by Sony though and I can attest after daily HEAVY use they are still kicking a year later.

wow, 2.5 years and still perfectly working! inimitable sound (and build) quality!

  • Summary: I bought them in June 2010, and it's December, 2012 now. They've since been in daily usage with various mobile phones, tablets, laptops etc. Ok, the gold plates from the plug have now worn off, but the sound is still 5* just like it was after they first time "broke in" during their first week. Wires are durable, metal parts are stylish and tough, and i can not begin to mention the sound they are making!

Excellent Earphones.

Charlie, Amazon

  • Summary: I read a lot about Bose and a lot about Sennheiser, two types I have never tried. I own these ones by Sony though and I can attest after daily HEAVY use they are still kicking a year later. Since I got my first Sony Walkman in 1982 I have never owned a pair of headphones half this long. These have snagged in laptops, down the side of mechanical recliner chairs, I have lost count how many times I have ripped them from ears by leaning on them or dropping my phone.

  • Summary: I love these headphones a lot. After 3 years of constant use, all around the world backpacking, I eventually lost them! Am now getting my second pair. Why do I love them so much? Well I absolutely love psy. I cant get enough of it. Everything else raving/in a night club just doesnt get my juices flowing.

A JOKE

graham matthews, Amazon
14 November 2012
  • Summary: these headphones are very comfortable and do not fall out some people must have funny ears, the sound and the BASS are not very good and their don't even go that loud, so i am sticking with my JVC HAFX 1X headphones now these are incredible the sound is wonderful and if you like lots of BASS these are for you and these go very loud, for around £15 these are a bargain, watch out for fakes...

Great but buy extra buds.

Mr. M. P. Bell "Martin", Amazon
14 January 2012
  • Summary: Pros: > Excellent sound. > Have lasted me 2 years and there is no degradation in quality of sound nor physical quality. > Love the design touches: -> left ear phone is identified through touch so no need to look at them before putting on. -> cable and phones are robust and resists tangling. Cons: > Have had to buy new buds twice as they come off and get lost rather easily.

Good Sound Bad Design

Kat Merican, Amazon
10 January 2012
  • Summary: I bought these headphones as an update from a pair of Philips which had originally cost me £30, so I hadn't started out super cheap, but wasn't coming from the top end of the market either. The sound is noticably better than other earphones I've used. The bass is richer and there's a lot less of that slightly tinny hiss you can get with cheaper models. The difference was noticable even on mp3 tracks, and I was surprised by the sound quality change.

Unbeatable price for a really good product

TheTechGeek15, Amazon
27 November 2011
  • Summary: This is the second pair I've bought of these headphones, sadly a few years of constant use had the better of the first pair. At the price point of these however I really don't mind shelling out on a new pair especially after getting a good few years out of the last. The bass on these are the best I have experienced for its price range and I really consider it to compete with headphones more than double its price.

Just what you would expect for the price.

Robbie, Amazon
14 November 2011
  • Summary: Great pair of headphones, the bass is definitely good, just that bit better than your average pair of in-ear headphones, more depth and power. At first it seemed that the bass overpowered the higher frequencies such as vocals, but after a while of listening the headphones seem to have broken in a bit and now the vocals are perfectly audible and aren't at all overpowered. The build quality is good. Although they are made of plastic, they are quite robust feeling.
