Extremely Portable and great sound


from North Carolina

These headphones are great for portable sound. High quality and just feel solid. Many other sets I have tried have felt cheap and made mostly of inexpensive plastic. These feel solid and stay the sound is very nice. For the price, they sound extremely balanced with a wide range. I do not work out in these, with the cost, I actually bought the h.ear clip on set and those have been fantastic for running. I would say that these would be too heavy for working out in over time. I mostly use for cross country flights, library, book stores, coffee shops or other public places that I need headhphones. A great advantage with these are they block out noise better than most other sports or clip on headphones. Not like noise cancelling but enough to let you enjoy the music or movies without all the extra background noise like clips or other cheaper models. I highly recommend this set and have used them repeatedly for about 8 months. Traveling as much as I do, they don't even seem to be the least bit damaged, bent, scratched and the cords are still working very well. The flexibility of the 2 foot cord with 2 foot extension is especially nice.

Very uncomfortable


from Undisclosed

I had been always very happy with Sony headphones. All I have ever had offered very good sound quality. These headphones are not different related to the offering sound quality. It is very good. However I am not able to wear them since there is the "stability tip" which is a piece of plastic pointing inside into my ears. So after a while I was able to tear these "stability tips" off and I can now actually put the headphones on and listen to music.
