Lightweight & Great Sound Quality

 

I'm an avid runner and spinner. I use these on the treadmill, and the quality is great. Blocks out a lot of noise and easy to hear the sound from the treadmill's TV display. I've had other Sony sport headphones, that tired my ears out. This one does...

I just bought these from this site to accompany my morning jogs, and am so glad that I did. My experience with Sony headphones in general has been pretty average; they are no better or worse than those by other top manufacturers. But these headphones...

Actually stays on your ears!

 

I use it to walk. Phones are comfortable and I don\'t have to adjust them all the time. I\'ll look for these again whenever these break.

Style and Substance

 

The headphone produces a very rich and clear sound. Comes with a plastic case to keep it safe while traveling. It has two protrudings on the earpieces that fit into your ear like earbuds and getting used to that can take some time. If you are used to...

Inner ear piece uncomfortable.

 

These are the worst ear phones I ever brought. The inner ear piece is very uncomfortable. Very time u move it moves as well. That ear piece doesn't fit all size ear's, because mine are small. They made the inner ear piece for someone with big ears.

Great buy!

 

I had a pair of these headphones that lasted me six years and I knew I wanted the same kind- behind the ear and foldable. Thank goodness Sony still makes them XD. My only problem is that the cord is much too short and definitely not 3.3 feet long as...
