Advantages: Compact size, various colours, reasonable price
Disadvantages: The sound quality is not perfect.
Different people have different criteria in choosing their own headphones, no doubt. In my city, there are very few people who would walk around wearing a big headset over their head because you will get much un-wanted attention from the people around. Therefore, the most popular ones in the markets are either earbuds (fitted directly in the outer ear) or in-ear earphones (earphones fitted in the ear canal).
I have used both types of earphones before. My personal experiences told me that the in-ear ones are better at blocking out background sound and allow you to enjoy the music more. However, because they are so good at blocking out the background sound, it may cause some risks as you may not hear the sound of the incoming vehicle!
I have bought a few pairs of this earphone so there must be something good about it!
In case if you don't know, there are some people who have a smaller outer ear and most of the earbuds in the market are just too big for them. I am one of those people and I always have difficulty in finding the earphones that fit me. The diameter for an average earbuds is 16mm and this sony earphone has a diameter of 13.5mm only. It fits my ear perfectly and will not keep falling off. In case if you have the same problem as me, you will find this earphone a very good one.
This earphone comes in 4 different colours and all of them look great! Earphones in grey, pink, blue and yellow and you can easily find one which suits your character.
Reasonable Price yet durable
The earphones are not expensive but they are quite durable. I don't really take good care of my earphones. I use my earphones almost on a daily basis and I do not take good care of them... I just threw them in my messy bag and they can still survive for nearly two years!
If you ask me what I do not like about the earphones, it will probably be that the bass of the earphones are quite weak. It will not be very obvious if you are using your earphones when travelling on the public transport, like what I do. In general, I would say that they come with a reaonsable sound quality for this price.
Summary: Perfect for those with small outer ears and want to get a not-so-expensive earphone
