great item


got it for $20, and if i knew it will be that worthwhile, i would have bought it for my girlfriend and a extra one to use for later.

great sound, really premium with a case, and reduce 80% + of the noise, even on the subway. it will be what you expected from a company like Sony that own a record company

the lines is too short, or too long. the earbuds are a bit too small, it is not good for a big man

Decent Headphones


Doesn't have any controls (volume or mute button) on the cord. I think that's a plus, but it's a personal preference.

Decent sound. Low price. No frills, but that's what I wanted. Has two foot extension

Very short cable without the extension. The cable is pretty thin ; They aren't as comfortable as some other Sony headphones I've owned

Sony Premium EX Earbuds


In an age with so many competing brands making premium headphones, it is nice to know Sony is still making quality products that people can trust will work as intended. I recommend these headphones to everyone who needs a new pair.

Extremely comfortable. The buds are soft and fit perfectly in my ears to the point that I forget them. I use the smallest ones by necessity and they do not disappoint. The sizes are properly distinct and work correctly. Sound quality is amazing. Top...

I feel like the 2ft cord is pretty short. Unless I was running and had my media player on an armband, I would like to have at least four feet so I can listen to it in my pocket (I am 5 11). I do praise Sony for including the 2ft extension cord though....

great for mp3 players not designed for abuse


when the ear buds are seated correctly in the ear they tend to be missing some of the mids. when loosely fitted in the ear they tend to produce ear bleeding high frequencies. over all they sound great with music but should have more mid level...

great for listening to music, great bass response for low frequncies. nice sleak design that can be worn all day long without your ears hirting other than being deff. I call these ear plugs because they litterly block that much sound when you are...

when watching movies they tend to be missing some of the mid level frequencies. you can adjust your equalizer so that the mids are higher. there is a disadvantage if you do not have a built in equalizer. i did not run into that problem just for future...

Solid headphones.


The ones I purchased were similar to these except I bought them for 20 bucks in an airport and they have performed top-notch since I bought them. Sony makes good earbuds.

Sony earbuds like these STAY IN MY EAR. Very rare for me


Consumer review by:

I expected better


Hopefully they do break in and respond very VERY well to it, I'll revise this if they do.

Very VERY good bass response. I have never heard 15 hz as a note before, but

Not very musical, there is just something missing IMO. I had $7 auvio canal earbuds before and they sounded better if I remember correctly (although they have a tendency for dying). My current headphones definitely sound better even though they have...
