Sony EX (Blue)


The Sony MDR-EX36V headphones are an obvious step up from stock buds in both comfort and sound quality, and the price is a bargain. The headphones come with handy accessories like a cable wrap, travel pouch, and inline volume control. They offer deep...

The Sony MDR-EX36V headphones suffer from a cheap, plastic design; a thin, tangle-prone cable; and a brittle high-end response.

The Sony MDR-EX36V Stereo Headphones are a good budget-friendly option for anyone who wants to upgrade from the earbuds that come packaged with MP3 players.

"Fantastic for what they are"


I bought these headphones at an airport when my other ones officially blew out, and I have to say, I'm quite pleased with them. I was initially expecting these to be only barely better than the free ones on the flight (not the cool Biz class Bose...

Good sound

None to speak of

"Originally good, quickly break"


These are a massive disappointment. I was a fan of the at first, but for all three sets to break within eight months is pitiful. They are good while they last, but that is not long, and i buy things which i expect to last.

The sound quality is excellent and i do like the fact that it cuts out noise and has an on cord volume adjuster.

I have bought three sets of these headphones, and every time they have broken. The left bud always dies leaving you with little to no bass. The only repair option ends up costing more that they did originally since you have to replace all the wiring insid

"Upgrade from standard ear buds for motorcycle riding"


I just purchased these yesterday and "BOY" what a difference from the $10 Phillips over the ear buds I was using. Now I can wear my sun glasses and not have to worry about loosing my ear buds. I just finished a 200 mile round trip run and listened to...

Cuts out wind noise, especially for shorty helmets. love the volume control where I can reach it safely

does muffle the ride some. Have to watch the volume

"Best sub-$20 I've EVER used!"


Great sound quality for the l-o! The come with three different bud sizes, a cord adjuster, and a carrying pouch. GREAT BUY!

GREAT SOUND QUALITY! I wanted something very chill that picked up the bass, and these buds do a great job of doing that. I also love the volume switch on the cord, come in handy.

none yet/ so far so good

"Good First Impression"


The packaging is easy to open. I have not tried using the cord adjuster yet, but I do have a use for it.

Yes, it does deliver strong bass, even when my iPod Touch EQ was set to "none".

A zippered pouch would have been nicer than a cloth drawstring bag.
