Beware of the behind-the-head style that is painful to wear


I own a pair similar to these. I bought the Sony MDR-G52 headphones about 6 years ago and they still work. I use them for light use in my home with a CD player, laptop, and TV. The foam covers that are on the ear pieces ripped after a few years of...

Attractive Pricing, Good Sound Quality In Mid-range, Does not interfere with hairstyle

Painful to Wear, Highs and Lows Could Be Improved, Foam Earpieces Ripped

Just what I was looking for


I spent a couple weeks looking for just the right pair of Headphones. I wanted something that I could use running and lying in bed that would also fit in my pocket. I have a I-River MP-3 player and the included ear buds were always falling out, plus...

Compact, comfortable, stay in place, good sound, and one of a kind styling

Color, may not work on all head types

A Mediocre Headphone With Make-Ups


The G73LP's unique, stretchable headband stretches for good fit (for me at least) and its lightweight makes it pretty comfortable to wear. Its color and look is subjective, but I find it a bit too bright, flashy, and overboard.

Unique design, comfy

Mediocre sound, flashy colors

Quality product


These headphones are some of the best I have ever owned. They are extremely comfortable and provide rich, deep sound. They can easily be worn for hours on end with no discomfort. In fact, it's easy to forget that you're even wearing them. The...

They've got the look. (and sound)


I am one of the many people who are tired of conventional syle head phones. I'm tired of getting my hair messed up and looking "uncool" because of nerdy headphone designs. Getting street style headphones was the answer to the "uncool" problem, but the...

Very comfortable, they look cool, great sound, deep bass

A great set of street-style headphones PUT THEM ON RIGHT!


I'm sorry, but sometimes you have to take these reviews with a grain of salt. I've been on a quest for headphones for a week now and yesterday I finally made the decision and went out and nabbed set of Sony's MDR-G73LP headphones -- In my opinion a...

Featherweight and extremely unobtrusive - Solid sound, good transients

Certainly not audiophile quality, but these are excellent headphones

Boing!! Just okay.


I bought these headphones after thoroughly being disappointed with a set of Koss headphones I had purchased. I thought these were going to be the answer to all of my problems. These are Sony's, supposedly the name in portable audio/audio accessories....


Price, awkward

Great for the active person


These headphones don't just sound great but they feel great too. I had the old Sony street style headphones and they seemed to hurt my ears after wearing them for any extended period of time. These feel great. I run and really wanted to get the earbud...

Very Lightweight, good sound, look cool too

Gets tangled easy

Too bright for their own good!


I first saw on the Sony USA Web site that the Sony MDR-G73LP Street Style headphones existed three months ago, but I never saw any picture of them - until I went to my local Best Buy retail superstore last week, and purchased them for the full retail...

More comfortable than other Sony Street Style headphones

Too bright! Also, fits poorly on many people

Product Specifications

Street Style Headphones are a cutting-edge approach to high quality headphone design that establish a new look on the street; ideal headphones for use with Sony Walkman. Exclusive behind-the-neck headband won't interfere with your hairstyle and even lets you wear a hat while wearing the headphones, Non-Slip Design for Secure Fit on Ears fits snugly yet comfortably so you can enjoy music while exercising, skating, dancing or playing sports, and minimizes sound leakage for consistently clear reproduction. Spiral Headband Style minimizes slipping while jogging, playing sports, commuting, dancing or aerobic exercising, and provides excellent comfort. 30mm Diameter Drive Units are larger than many portable headphones for deeper bass, lower distortion and wider dynamic range; low frequency response extends down to 14Hz. Neodymium Magnets pack more magnetic energy per ounce than conventional ferrite, samarium cobalt or aluminum magnets and produce powerful bass and clear treble sound. PET Diaphragms ensure high rigidity for minimum distortion, and low mass for excellent high-frequency response. Lightweight folding design and compact body makes these headphones truly portable and easy to slip into a pocket or bag when you're on the move. Secure fit on ears minimizes sound leakage so you enjoy the full wide-range frequency response. Sony Acoustic Twin Turbo Circuit yields high efficiency; gets high sonic output from your portable stereo and extends bass response.
