Sound is good but NOT durable

 

Nice sound but not durable. I get Panasonics for under $10 elsewhere that are way more durable and sound pretty good

NOT durable. The cords pull out at junction and also at the earbud. The drivers are durable, the cords are not. We are talking you are lucky to get months of wear

Consumer review by:

Poor reliability

 

Don't waste your money on cheap Sony headphones.

Good sound quality

Don't last. Bought two units. Both sat in packaging for a year and both failed with a weeks usage after opening and using. POOR QUALITY! Also, Sony claims the warranty is only 90 days -- not 1 year as Newegg says

Sony Premium White Headphones with Gold Plated Connector (MDR-EX56LP/Whi)

 

I've seen at least one comment regarding the cord lengths being 'lopsided.' This is not a design fault, it is a feature. The right earphone loops around behind your neck so you have less cord dangling in front of you. Please don't bash this product...

Excellent sound quality ; Much less than I paid at Walmart for an identical black pair ; Didn't break after a couple months of abuse like cheaper kinds do. (Most don't last long from being wrapped around my mp3 player, but these handle it and still...

None so far, though I wish I bought my other pair from Newegg in the first place to save a bit of cash

Consumer review by:

not bad

 

the fool who is talking about the lopsided cords it's meant to go behind your head. so you have it going down only on one side and the longer cord i meant to wrap around the back of the neck

Not bad head phones, sound quality is decent, not terrible for the cost

earbuds are easily lost. the cord seems kind of thin. in the long term it may give out

Immersive experience

 

For the sound immersion you achieve with these headphones, it's a good deal.

The frequency range is quite good. I really like the bass end. They are very good at sound isolation. I can be listening to any music, loud or soft, and not hear anything around me. It's good enough that I sometimes wonder if I am breathing weirdly or...

The volume is a bit low compared to any of my other headphones. Also, it's white. Ear wax is yellow. If you have ear drainage issues (I know, ewwwww, but it can be an issue) you may not appreciate the color. I like it, but I don't have ear issues ; The...

STAY AWAY FROM SONY!

 

None

Please stay far away from these headphones. I've had bad luck with many Sony products for a while now and let's face it their company has been doing terribly with a line of products have have flopped the major being the PS3 ; I figured, hey why not?...

Comfy

 

6-23,000Hz response with a 9mm driver, nicely done Sony.

For the sale price, or the normal one, the sound quality is great. Absolutely love the customizable ear-bud size, they wont fall out or hurt. Wear for hours while working and dorm-mate is sleeping, sound can't be heard by him and they're still comfy...

Doesn't come with an iPod

Consumer review by:

For small ears too!

 

Comes with three bud sizes; I had to use the smallest one. Fits nicely, not too loose or tight ; My old Apple iPod ear buds had plastic/rubber reinforcement between the bud and where it connects to the cord, and it broke and tore to pieces after a few...

After a while, maybe an hour or two of constant play time, it does start to hurt the canals, which either tells me (1) it's too tight or (2) I'm shoving it in there too deep

Consumer review by:

Good earbuds.

 

The best low end response and sound I have found

White is probably not best color to use inside ear

Consumer review by:

Awesome

 

Came in three sizes which is very cool. I switch out between small and medium depending on what im doing. Overall a great buy. Newegg succeeds again!

Fast shipping by new as usual. The cord is the perfect length, i used it for when im walking to class and does not tug on my ear when i have my mp3 player in my pocket. Crisp sound, cant complain. The bass of it is really good. I compared it to my 40...

Wish it was black
