The fit is good, return policy sucks, not Bluetooth

Jeffro8774, Amazon
5 July 2014
  • Summary: Sucky return policy. Not Bluetooth headphones, which is really upsetting b/c I searched Bluetooth headphones and this popped up. The pictures were to blame for my delusion. Apparently Sony had made some Bluetooth headphones w this same technology "XBA-S65 - Balanced Armature" but they are recalled and apparently unavailable. The only upsetting thing is NYCE's return policy. 20% of the price of the item to restock and no free return shipping, it's outright wrong.

Headphone

Eliane Silberberg, Amazon

  • Summary: The headphone plugs feels weird inside the ear. It does block the sound from outside completely. However it falls from the ear easily as you run. Also I didn't like that it doesn't have mic and volume controls on the cord.

don't stay in my ears

JL, Amazon
3 May 2014
  • Summary: These do not stay in my ears as well as I thought they would. They adjust but they never seem to be right and when I run they move and adjust on there own. I hate to post bad reviews but looks like another headphone purchase that doesn't work for me. Sound quality is good enough. However I wanted in the ear buds due to wind noise. these do not seem to lessen wind noise at all!

Ear loops too big! Sound quality only OK.

SilEighty, Amazon

  • Summary: Sound seems a bit below Sony standards (even relative to other earphones at this same price point), but what really kills it for me is the fact that the ear loops are TOO BIG. Unless you have big Dumbo ears these won't work for you; buy at your own risk.

Fell apart & sound is tinny, but easily untangled & relatively secure

Erin@Home "Erin@Home", Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought these after reading sound quality reviews and being warned that the treble was going to overpower the bass. Really does, but it's acceptable once I was weaned off the great sound quality of the Apple buds that wouldn't stay in my ears during a workout. After a week or so, the first little tabs on these Sony headphones came loose and I kept having to kind of click them back into place.

Nice sound, bad fit

  • Summary: While the headphones delivered good sound, they kept slipping out of my ears during my runs (and yes, I tried the different sized buds).

Bought 2 sets, returning both

bbeers, Amazon

  • Summary: My wife and I both tried these headphones, and we both had problems with the fit of this item. For her, the speaker portion that goes into the ear canal was too large to fit, even with the smallest earpiece on. For me, they will not stay put on my ear. The design should work nicely in theory, but in reality, I was constantly pulling the cord tight because it slips and the earbud falls loose. We will be returning these and trying another set.

  • Summary: I gave a 2 stars rating because they have a nice look but besides that when you run they loosen up And the sound totally changes And you have to be fixing that while running wich is very unconfortable!

Not very durable for a sport earphone.

kamuela, Amazon
5 March 2013
  • Summary: The ear buds don't stay all the way in your ear very long while jogging. They tend to come out and dangle in your ear as they are held by the over the ear strap. The sound quality goes down when they aren't shoved in all the way in your ear. When they are in your ear,the sound quality is pretty good but the over the ear strap isn't very durable. I only use these earbuds for jogging and they tore after about 20 uses.

Too much money for too little quality

Marc Doolittle, Amazon
15 October 2012
  • Summary: This is the last time I buy a product because one of my magazines reviews and recommends it... For $90, I expected excellent. Instead, these not only would not stay in my ears when running (the purpose for which they were purchased), but they also fuzzed out after three months. You know, one side went all static-y like a bad radio station. VERY disappointed I could not return them. May try for an exchange and give them away as a gift.
