Best sport headphones and design

 

Over all one of the best liked and most comfortable headphones ever made judging from hundreds of positive reviews on various websites.

The vertical headband design is probably the best headphone design. It lets air in and it lets moisture out. They fit almost all ears very comfortably and they stay comfortable. They don't fall out like ear buds or start to hurt like the special sport...

The main down side is the current price since they have been discontinued, and also that one ear eventually goes out because the wire connections eventually get loose. The cords pull on the connection to the speaker or entrance to the headphones which...

They are not indestructible!

 

I keep getting bounced back and forth between newegg and the warranty company and the manufacturer. Why? Because I do not have a PC and none of the websites are tablet friendly. Wierd, they all work when I make a purchase. BTW, its the same with the...

They did look tough. Arrived new in package

They only look tough. After almost three months of use. The covering over the wire near the jack itself has worn off. I admit I am a heavy user. That's why I bought these!. I loved having peace of mind with the one year return. However now that I need...

Best basic headphone out there

 

I am a real fan of these lightweight and inexpensive headphones. If you are gentle with the wiring (don't get snagged on a knob or something while you are wearing them)they will last for a year or two. This Sony model has been around for quite a while,...

Great Service

 

The Sony headphones were exactly as described and as expected. The only type of headphones my 95 year old mother can use to hear with and very hard to find. Thank you so much for your great product and service!

Work great until they stop working

 

These have been my go-to headphones for working out for the last 10 years or so, and I use them 6-7 times per week for 1-2 hours. I dislike in-ear buds, so these are perfect for lifting weights and running. They're lightweight, stay put, have perfect...

Lightweight, sound good, comfortable, inexpensive

Stop working after 6-8 months

USER FRIENDLY and QUICK

 

I am impressed that the Sony Website saved me so much time and gasoline trying to find the product I wanted. After my dog chewed up my Sony headset which I had for about 3 years, I was devastated. It was the only headset I like and doesn't hurt my...
