WOW Sony =) These are some bomb headphones 4 da $!

Picked these babies up earlier and spent a few hours in my studio with them. I produce a lot of hip hop and trance and I gotta admit they compare to my Sennheiser monitors. What a deal! =-)


Most Liked Negative Review



Shipping and handling was excelent, received on time but when i received it total disapointed i thought i'll have a brand new item but instead i received a Refurbished (on any place of the item at the web site says it). Besides that good sound quality,, not fully tested though

Big Bang for the buck


from Cleveland, Ohio  -  Value Oriented

Good quality and sound for the money paid. Like that the ear pads rotate to lay flat. Use to watch movies on my ipad. Don't like "in the ear" type of ear buds.


So So Headphones


from Boston Ma  -  Value Oriented

I listen to music and these headphones lack richness.


Can't go wrong for this price


from Murfreesboro, TN  -  Quality Oriented

I bought the item for my 4 and 8 year olds because they like to be around us while they are playing games and watching movies. I have also used them a couple of times. For the price, you can't go wrong. The range isn't very dynamic but I expected that for $15.


Great sound for the price


from FL  -  Quality Oriented

I had a similar but older model for years, and this set sounds as good or better. Very comfortable as well.


Great value for price


from New York, NY

Do not expect wonders, but in overall the price/value ratio for a Sony headset is unbeatable!

from Seattle, WA

This is the first time in ages that I found headphones that lasted more than a few weeks. Every time I bought some the wiring would fail because I packed them in my work bag and the cord would get bent, causing the wiring to break. The result was always either one or both sides would stop working. I have had these for about 6 months now and I have had no problem with them at all. I will definitely be buying another one to have ready for when my current one finally just wears out. Thank you for a great product that lasts!!

Incredible Sound, Bass, portability, and Comfort


from Charlotte, NC

I just got these headphones for $20, and they are amazing. They are great with all types of songs. I am a bass-ahollic. The bass is crystal clear. It doesn't over power the song though. The treble is amazing. They are extremely flexible, and the ear cups have two pivoting points. Though, this doesn't effect the durability of them. Over all, I would definitely recommend them to everyone.
