  • Summary: Pros: These are good earbuds that offer a boomy bass, clear mids, ok highs that aren't too rolled off and good isolation.   Cons: They are not worth their price as there are clearly better options at the $200 area
  • Pros: Isolation, Bass, Clarity
  • Cons: Pricey

Decent earbuds

  • Summary: A good set of earbuds here. I've been trialling them for a few weeks now and am mostly impressed. The lows are nice, not quite as thumping as something like the beats but just enough to have a decent presence. The mids are warm and saturated and in my opinion make these buds. There's enough room in them to distinguish all instrumentation and vocals. You'll hear ever nuance mind, in a "mastered for iTunes" track.

  • Summary: very good product with nice balanced sound only grouse was that the control does not change tracks on my htc one and the case for the earphones could have been made a bit larger.

Down side the price

  • Summary: Very good in- ear phones although should be given the price tag. Very comfortable, great sound - in line mic is good and very handy. Noise isolation works well! Just more expensive than the equivalent Shure or Sennheiser.

Clear sound with good bass

Kelv, Amazon

  • Summary: After a few hours running in, even with my player set on neutral sound setting, the bass is really good without being 'muddy', overall the sound is I think warm but you can hear voices and individual instruments clearly. Definitely pays to try the different buds supplied to find those that fit best and therefore give best sound especially for the bass. All with typical Sony quality.

Excellent sound, not for Android.

Jack, Amazon

  • Summary: I have not used balanced armature drivers before and it took a few days for my ears to adjust to the tone of these earphones but now that they have I love them. I predominantly listen to audiobooks when out and about and for this reason I did not feel the need to purchase the more expensive models with additional bass drivers.

buy with confidence

Rob Ritchie, Amazon

  • Summary: I read reviews and decided to give it a try. I don't expect headphones to last forever so wasn't bothered by suggestions it wouldn't last forever. Good sound, comfortable to wear. A good buy.

Great sound

M Benson, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought to replace some Denon 560C units which broke. Sound is more defined and clarity is impressive but to me they lack some of the richness of the Denons. Only down side is still can't get used to the J cord when running which pulls on the headphones and dislodges them.

great sound but the cable and jack leave room for improvement

phil, Amazon

  • Summary: as per other reviews these headphones sound great. I am a bass junkie and bought these on the expectation of stronger bass, which they deliver. Cant compare to a home hifi set-up with sub-woofer etc. but then no headphones can of course. For the price Im very happy with the overall sound quality. The microphone / button unit is nice and compact and feels pretty solid, like it wont fall apart after a few months.
