These little headphones were a christmas present who knew that I loved music, the first thing I noticed about them were the squishy tips, this ensures that they are comfortable to wear inside the ear which is nice as after a while of wearing other brand headphones like the iPod ones it starts to get uncomfortable and physically hurt, however these do not hurt at all and are actually rather pleasant to have as an in ear speaker.
I found out how much they cost and for a sony product they are a total bargain, which is good when they have the typical sony quality which is lovely to hear, the quality of the music/films through the speaker is fantastic compared to other more expensive brand headphones, another thing about these is that they aren't like those rubbish jelly headphones but they aren't completely solid like the Apple ones which is nice because you can just fold them around your iPod so they are extremely portable and they don't tangle too much either. For the price these are fantastic and you can't go wrong.
Fed up of my iPhone headsets poor sound quality and terrible build quality, I bought these little Sony headphones quite a few months back for about £10 and they have done very well. In comparison to the iPhone/ iPod headphones that they replace and which cost over twice as much, they have a far superior build quality. They have lasted for quite a while, being used very often, and are pretty much as new. The sound quality has also not decreased, and has remained pretty good considering the price. Admittedly they don't have the sound quality of some of the very expensive headphones out there, but their sound quality rivals that of several headphones which are twice or three times the price.
Style wise they look good, and the black colouration means that they retain looking new despite regular usage. They also fit very well in the ear, feeling comfortable even when you're listening to music for hours on end. They don't slip out of the ear ever due to the slightly off circular front of the headphone.
Overall these headphones are much better quality than the price would suggest, and considering that I have seen them for sale for only £7 which makes them an absolute bargain. I would suggest them to any one who wants to purchase a pair of cheap headphones for everyday use.
