Sound great...

 

Sound is awesome. You even get a sense of "bass

Cord is short! I'm 6'1", and I can't listen to music while carrying the device in my pants pockets comfortably... could have added a foot and satisfied 99.9% of users

Awesome

 

If these came with a replacement warranty or something, anything that meant I wouldn't have to buy another set in a year, I would happily pay double this price. They really do sound great

These use the same 9mm driver as most of the other Sony earbuds, all of which sound fantastic. Sony headphones are usually pretty bass heavy, but in the earbuds this tendency balances with the naturally treble nature of earbuds to sound awesome. I...

They break. As with all of Sony's headphones I've owned, they have an 8 - 12 month lifespan before one side stops working suddenly. Such awesome headphones make the disappointment when this happens that much worse

Amazing Headphones

Excellent earphone!

 

Give 4 stars is only because the bass sound is not pronounced. I got this one about 1 or 2 years ago in Stable when it was kind of on sale. The slim design is really good, and the paint gives the earphone a high class look. The playback part is...

No distortion when I max them out!

 

I purchased these out of a clearance basket & could have paid less, but Sony head phones have never disappointed me. I would not use them when you may need to hear what is going on around you, e.g., work, riding a bicycle or whatever. I have not...
