Advantages: Cheap, Cheerful, work well.
Disadvantages: Maybe not the best quality but then you wouldn't expect them to be.
I bought these to use with my mp3 player to replace the ones that came as standard. I chose them as cheap and cheerful headphones that weren't so dreadful that even my untrained ears would object. What I got was a pair of headphones that are probably not far in quality from some of Sony's much higher priced headphones. Sure, they're not stunningly comfy and do feel a little awkward after a while but they do the job well and they're not bad to the point of being painful. The sound quality is fine for what they are and what they cost (£6 from the Sony shop, probably cheaper elsewhere).
The build quality is as good as always from Sony and they have survived being stuffed into pockets and bags.
If I had to find fault with them it would be that the cord is a little on the short side (1m) and doesn't reach the bottom of a trouser pocket. It will reach an mp3 player in a pocket but it is a bit tight. The plug is narrowed towards the jack that I think is so that it can be used with the iPhone (standard ones are too wide) although I have not tested this.
Overall they do everything that is expected of them and at this price you can't complain.
Summary: Good headphones for low price.
