I usually don’t write product reviews, but this great product has compelled me to do so. I picked up a pair, after my old earbuds died. I didn’t expect these to last more than a couple months.

I usually don’t write product reviews, but this great product has compelled me to do so. I picked up a pair, after my old earbuds died. I didn’t expect these to last more than a couple months. I am very rough with my earbuds, it’s normal that I go to bed using them and wake up with them in a tangled mess. Much to my surprise, unlike my last 5 purchases, these kept on working after 2 months, then 6. It’s now been more than a year, and they are still working good as new. Durability gets an A+ Now I’m sure you are wondering about the sound quality. Well let me tell you, these will not disappoint. The bass is very prominent, but not over powering or muddy. The rest of the spectrum is well presented also, with good midtones and sparkling highs. Sound gets an A+ Let me tell you, you won’t know comfort until you first put these on. They protrude into your ear more than earbuds, but less than in ear headphones. I find it the perfect balance. Even after 3+ hours of listening, my ears aren’t complaining. Comfort gets an A+ The one and only con I found with these, is that they don’t block out ambient noise. If you plan to use these in a noisy environment, such as a gym, there are better choices. So if you are considering buying these, I strongly encourage you to do so. Nothing else that I have found can match these in either quality, value, comfort, or performance. Happy listening, Michael

Sooo Amazed

By

from Fort Wayne, IN

I felt compelled to write a review for these headphones. I've never bothered to write a review about anything before. I am totally amazed with these headphones. I have loved them ever since I received them as a present. I think the sound quality surpassed any phones I have had before. I have sensitive earlobes and they tend to hurt when I have headphones in. These pair have always had such a marvelous fit and never fall out or press on my ears. Today I experienced the biggest shock I've had to date with any technological item I've ever purchased. I threw in a load of laundry and I have no idea how my headphones became mixed up with my clothes, however, there they were lying in the dryer. "oh no!!" I shouted in dismay. I was sure that my headphones would be utterly ruined after going through the washer AND dryer. I decided to still give them a try, in hopes that somehow they would miraculously still play sound. I plugged them into my iPod and to my total shock they worked absolutely fine. Never sounded better, lol. I couldn't believe it. Not only are these the finest pair of headphones I've ever owned, they withstood heat and water damage. They look completely fine on the outside as well. After this amazement I had today, I felt the need to write a review for these outstanding headphones. I fully recommend purchasing these. A HUGE high five to Sony. thank you for making these wonderful headphones!

better than higher end models

By

from las vegas,nv

I have about 9 pairs of headphones and always try the newest top of the line headphones. The sound quality and response on these are great. comparable to shure se110 and Bose® in-ear headphones. They stay in well when running also which is a problem with most other earbuds.Great Value

A little gem

By

from Boynton Beach, Florida

I bought these since no local store had the model 21 (which costs a few dollars more.) I have had experience with other earbuds including one by a major competitor which had no bass whatsoever. While these don't have 3 sets of earpieces, their design fits my ears quite well. The sound is very well balanced. I assume the fine bass response is due to the large diaphragms. For this price they are unbeatable!
