Love 'em

Headphones vs. price is a thumbs up , it does have a sound output comparable to my sonyericsson w810i walkman headphones . I woundn't say it is like a Circumaural headphone but , it's just fine .

Sony S396-0030


I got these because they are shaped & contoured like the JVC pair I own. Being Sony, I guessed they would be above average- at least. Its hard to tell how good the audio is, as the buds do not fit in the ear canal like they're designed to do. The...
