Where's the Bass?

David, Amazon
7 December 2014
  • 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.

  • Summary: Rubbish, distorted and flat. The middle is really mucky. Buy sound magic E10s for quarter of the price and twice the sound quality

It's not harsh to say they sound harsh....

s buckenham, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • Summary: I'm shocked. As an advocate of Sony headphones over many years, I looked forward to testing out these premium price 'phones. On doing so however, I immediately re-packaged them and sent them straight back. The bass is there, but nothing notable. The treble is muted and the mid range shouts at you.

Not that great

B. Irwin, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: For the price, the sound quality was not at all very good. Couldn't notice much difference to my standard in ear apple headphones. Then the ear piece which holds the ear buds snaps off a few days after my warranty runs out. Very disappointed.

Disappointing

Stephen Lloyd, Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: The sound quality was not what I expected at all. Given these were originally priced around £130 I expected much better performance. I have a set of apple headphones that came with my i-pod and they produce a markedly better sound, although are not "in-ear" headphones, which is what I was after.

Quality ok but rubbish sound

Ron, Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: The product is well made to a good quality and fits the ear ok after trying out the various earbuds, but the quality of the sound seems to me to be no better than the standard ear phones that come with a Apple product being rather bland and nothing exciting.
