Form factor and function Great- Sound OK


I used SONY Ex-71SL for many years and liked the fact that they were behind the neck and asymmetric, plus the sound cancellation was great and bass was deep and convincing. (Cant find them anymore except poorer quality knockoffs from China). These...

My best Sony earphones yet!


I bought these after my previous Sony earphones lost the sound out of the right speaker. Since I had them for Around a year, figured maybe okay, try another pair. These are an upgrade

Nice Looking, Average Sound


They look and feel great, and I love the iphone remote but the sound is not as good as previous sony earbuds I've owned. I don't know if the lack of great sound has to do with the fact that the headphones have a mic and remote but it is just not what I...

It's Amazing


I just opened it and am impressed by the quality. I hope the sound-canceling is good, didn't test it yet.

Fits perfectly, The remote sits right above my clothes, I never have to take out my iPod again, comfortable

The remote blocks the grip thing from sliding all the way up
