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!
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.
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.
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.
Summary: These Sony Headphones are absolutely amazing. Most in ear headphones produce really rubbish sound. These certainly don't. They go to a max of 142DB and have very good Treble and excellent Bass. So much so, when i put my hand on them i can feel them shaking. They never distort. Would recommend to everyone. Well worth the money!!
Summary: These are great earphones for the price, I'm not someone who will spend hundreds of pounds for top quality ones, I find it difficult to notice much difference in quality, let alone justify paying the sort of money some ask. All I want is something that sounds reasonably good, and are comfortable to wear. These fit the bill exactly.
