Can't get better quality for this price.


For $9, heck, for $20 your not going find a better sound.

Very comfortable. Extra rubber cushions of varying sizes for the perfect fit.. Super deep bass

I heard just the smallest amount of static

I expect longer life.

Good Sound, decent price, long cord

As almost on cue, the left earbud died at 3 months (warranty period). Overall volume was low, I had to put my MP3 player on max

Cristal clear and good bass


I listen to 256k MP3s, Reggae and Chillout. Clearer than anything else I've heard. Cristal clear and good bass ; It comes with a tool to keep the cord shorter which works great, three different ear size pieces, and a cloth bag to put it all in. The...

May need a little bass boost from EQ

3rd Pair of Sony's


The cord is very long and it includes a cable management clip but it makes it a bit bulky. One issue I have and it's not worth being a con, is that they fit in the ear very similar to ear protection. I can never hear the phone ring or doorbell or my...

I like that it has 3 sizes of buds and that they are washable. I also like the adjustable volume on the cord itself. This is the main reason I am on my 3rd set of Sony Earbuds. It's a definite plus when working out instead of reaching for my iPod. I...

the old standby


The cable is longer on the right side. The cable is shorter on the left. We all got over this many years ago. Just let go, and use em.

The old standby, and they sound great, fit even better. This is my sixth pair. I used to get the $40 ones but now the $20 ones are just as good

you'll like em, and they won't last forever

Stop using DHL Newegg


I've been shopping at newegg for years and their customer service and quick shipping has always been top notch. Recently they have started using DHL. DHL is awful. Case & point, here is the tracking for my order. Note that the package originated in TN,...

Great headphones ; Good sound quality

Distorted Low End


I purchased these Sony's as a backup set so I could send in my Koss headphones for replacement (lifetime warranty). The mid and high range sound is similar to the Koss but the low range on the Sony's are terrible. I may have a defective pair but not...

Nice carry bag, comfortable, decent mid and high range sound, reasonable cost

Rated two eggs for distorted low end (bass), no strain relief at earbuds

They Last


They last, the sound quality is good and oh yeah...they last! And for the price!? Geesh, they're a steal. I bought them when they were $30, so they've come down $10 in the past year.

I'm going to keep this brief: They work. I've owned them since 10/23/2009 and have used them 6 days a week, week in and week out. I used to buy another brand that would only last 8 months and then i'd have to buy a new pair. I just realized I've owned...

Absolutely none

Work Great


Sometimes cheaper can bite you. Spend a few more $$$ and buy these babies!

As advertised. I'm sure there are cheaper headphones, but these Sony's live up the band name. I'd recommend them to anyone

None for me

Not Bad


Good sound quality and noise cancellation

The work themselves out of my ears while running. It's not a deal breaker, but can be annoying
