Sony MDR-NX1

I've been using my Sony MDR-NX1 earphones for about 9 months. The "necklace-pendant" type design is a great idea. It lets you just hang a small MP3 player from your neck, suspended in the center of your body rather than off to one side in a pocket or...

Sony MDR G57G

This headset has the athletic aesthetics of Sony's S2 Sports music players, but its performance is just average.

Sony WCS 999

I love the sound quality of these little lavs. They are affordable for sure, but you will pay for what you get. There isn't much distance to the receivers, nor do the batteries last long before you get some irritating static, however for the price,...

I have bought these in 2000. The sound is very reminescent of you get when setting a V-like eq (scooped mids) on your favorite sound system. The highs are very present, so is the bass. The high are present and detailed, which I like, while the bass is...

Sony MDR-Q 33 LP

First of all, I'd like to note that I have no earlobes and smaller ears, so while I'm sure it's physically possible for me to use earbud headphones, it's really very uncomfortable. And without having much ear to grab onto, most of the over-the-ear...

Sony MDR-NC 20

I've had a pair of these since around 1999 and they're still working perfectly. They're not the cheapest around, but then I haven't had to replace them either. Totally recommended. They do tend to need to be taken off after about 2-3 hours, but then...

Sony MDR-Q 55

I was looking for a pair of headphone for jogging. It's not very comfortable, and keeps coming off from my ears. Really annoying. However, if you are not using them for sports, the quality is fairly good for this price.

Sony MDR RF945RK

I have had Sony cordless headphones since 2003, so... ten+ years. I like them just fine, but my wife adores them. She bought them for me to wear, so she can sleep when I am watching late night TV (that's after 8:30 PM, for her). Sometimes I use them to...
