Sony MDR-E9LP Headphones


Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

I had the old model for about 2-3 years. they worked beautifully. I recently smashed one of the ear buds in my car door, and I was very upset. But I found these, the new model, and they work just as well.

Wire gets tangled easily, but that is expected

Decent ear buds


I have small ears so they don't fit well but overall I am very satisfied. They work :)

best earbuds ever


Just wanted to say that these are the best earbuds I have ever bought. They were very inexpensive and have very good quality sound. I accidentally put mine through the washer and the dryer. When I found them after my laundry was finished I was sad and...

inexpensive, great sound

Gets the Job done,


I picked a green pair from target a few months back, as a spare pair of buds to use with my 3ds and mp3 player at the library.

great colors, good price

not the best sound

Complete Junk


You can go to the dollar general and get a better pair of headphones. Sony has went to the crapper over the years, i will never buy another one of their products. Shame on you sony

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.

They work.


What can I say about these? They were some of the cheapest ones here. My son goes through these things like crazy so don't want to get anything too expensive. They work and sound okay to me with the ipod.
