I have had these Headphones for a few months now and they are very good. The headphones do seem strange in shape but have been designed with big 13.5mm neodymium Driver units. This I have found really enhances the quality of sound you get from them unlike the smaller in-ear headphones you can buy.
The cable is quite long so I can easily have my phone in my pocket while listening to music. However this does mean that they can get in a tangle very easily in your pocket unless you wrap them up.
The Silicon tips fit comfortably in my ears and the headphones are supplied with 3 different pairs of silicon tip sizes to suit different ear shapes. When you are wearing them without listening to music, they do block out background noise quite well and very well while playing music.
Overall, I would recommend buying these headphones as they are a good upgrade from cheaper headphones and offer more expensive headphone audio quality in my opinion while being mid-priced.
I only had these Sony in-ear headphones for about a week as after pulling them out of the audio socket on my PSP the wires came away from the jack, leaving the jack in my PSP which I had to prize out using pliers to get the jack out of my PSP.
In the week I had them, they produced a really sharp and crisp sound. They really are perfect when listening to music, movies or gaming. I watched a movie while wearing these and the voices make it seem like you are there on the set, the sound is that good.
Because of the oval way they are designed, they are easy to put in and take out, and are very comfortable in the ear. After having them in for three plus hours, you forget they are there. The ear buds are soft and rubbery to the touch and Sony is nice enough to include replacement buds and a leathery case to put them in after use.
They come in a range of colours, and I had a pair of blue ones. They really are very stylish ear phones. They go well with everything. When I used them when running or on the train, they act like
I don't know if I had faulty ones, but as I bought them from eBay the chances of getting a refund don't seem worth it so I have lost my money, but even thought they only lasted a week, I would pay out for some more because of the sound produced by them is so high quality, it's worth it.
These are the most comfortble and best quality headphones that I have ever owned. Don't be put off by the price. These truly are worth twice the amount. Whether you are using these headphones on the bus, at the gym or just relaxing at home, you can be assured that they will cancel out any background noise. The innovative design enables the headphones to fit into your ears with maximum comfort. After a while you will not realise that the headphones are in you ears! As well as the comfort the sound quality is at a higher standard than anything that I have previously experienced. Sony has increased the standard expected from in-ear headphones with newly developed 13.5mm driver units which reproduce vocal and instrumental sound with vivid clarity. The headphones also come with a stylish compact carrying case so that they dont get damaged when you are not using them.
Great value for money and a purchase that you will not be disappointed with! Highly recommended!
These headphones are the best I have owned so far.
They cancel out pretty much all background noise, and bring new life to your music. If you are stuck with the default iPod ones, my advice would be to pick up a pair of these - it makes your music worth so much more. It's like listening to the recording at the studio, the clarity really is that good.
As mentioned previously, the encoding of your mp3 files will matter. If you are using a shoddy bitrate off a p2p application, then obviously the quality will be impaired, though it will not be because of a fault with these headphones - they play properly encoded mp3's amazingly well.
Comfort-wise, they're unmatched as far as in-ear headphones go. Can't even feel that they are in your ears once you get going. This is both for when you are are just chillaxing or in the gym on the treadmill - secure and comfortable throughout.
All in all, the perfect choice. May be a bit pricy, but these actually used to retail at ~£70, so rest assured you will get your money's worth.
