  • Summary: the price is allot and you can find close performance from lesser priced buds
  • Pros: Very good mids and highs lows are a bit removed but the the quality of these headphones is well with within my comfort range I am a avid music listener and the audio reproduction is great. I minus one egg cause the rubber around the wire tore a little real easily
  • Cons: rubber around wire tore easily when I brushed a wall

Quite piercing and lacks bass.

  • Summary: I bought these about a year ago and really tried to like them but I just couldn't. I tried them on an off, but maybe not enough for them to 'burn in' perhaps. Despite all the praise that it was getting from other review sites I found the sound quality of these to be quite poor.

Good quality headphones.

  • Summary: Prompt delivery and product is really high quality, obviously not going to compete with the £1000+ but definitely a good few steps ahead of your regular headphones.

Where's the Bass?

David, Amazon

  • Summary: These headphones are shocking value for money. They possess absolutely zero Bass whatsoever. Additionally if using during exercise - forget it. No amount of adjustment or changing the Bud size, stops them from falling out. A great disappointment for such an amount of money.

don't buy if you want a balanced true sound

  • Summary: these headphones sound horrible, there is no treble at all....the roll off sounded around at 15khz, i assumed they were faulty and had to return them, however later reading more about them I found out they are meant to sound like this which personally makes no sense.

For the average person who likes bass and isn't a sound engineer... you will rate this as 1 star, don't be fooled by the Pros

  • Summary: I previously owned the Sony MDR-300EXiP headphones for listenning to music on my iphone. I found them to be far superior to the average Sony models being sold for use with an iphone. Please excuse my non audiophile terminology but I found music vibrant and with rich bass.

Brilliant sounding in-ears

Evan, Amazon

  • Summary: Wonderful sound for the price, and a variety of cushion sizes makes sure that they'll sit happily in your ears! Though it might be worth a mention that the volume control along the cable does not work for android (as far as I'm aware) but don't let this put you off, a very solid purchase.
