Great price & sound, not terribly durable.


Great sound, in-line volume is great during workouts, really good price for the quality

Durability. This is the third pair I've had. I keep buying them because I do really like them BUT there is always a weak spot in the cord wiring. It's either right near the plug or at the right earbud. Sony's warranty is short so you just end up buying...

Nice... nice


May be a good idea to get another shipping option if you're impatient. Otherwise, an overall outstanding option for headphones - save for those who have a phobia of earbud types.

Overall - very nice headphones. Very comfortable, has options (size wise), very light, crisp sound, outstanding bass, and a slight noise cancelling effect. For the money, these are excellent. Props to Sony

Nothing regarding the item in specific. However, I chose ground shipping for this item and it took much longer than expected (keeping past Newegg purchases in mind)

One of the best


I walk 20 min everyday. The cheap ones are what you pay for. These are high quality, great sound and great fit. For a NYC walk, all I hear is my music. Pay they extra ten bucks and get buds that you actually like.

Awesome headphones!!!


I use these daily in school and they are great on the sound quality and the bass. You can have them loud in class and no one will be able to hear them because they no leaking at all, the only time people can hear them is when you take them off and they...

Good earbuds for the price


I use these with my Kindle to watch movies in bed. The volume control on the cord is very convenient. Good earbuds for my purpose.
