Sony's in-ear, noise canceling headphones greets users with clearer and sharper sounds and stronger bass, when listening to music, or anything else for that matter. Indeed Sony has had a successful market with headphones, so it is sad to see Sony keep making the same mistake.
These headphones, MDREX51LP were Sony's first attempt at the in-ear headphone market. The headphones themselves look very modern and stylish. With an inner black casing and shiny silver outer casing, with completely black wire attached, the headphones are certainly easy on the eye. Sony also gave a small "capsule" away in the packaging, which included larger in-ear buds for those in need of them. Strangely, Sony designed the headphones so you would have to place one wire around your neck, so both the ear buds are parallel to each other. This made the wire quite long, so to taller people, it would fall out often.
As great as it looks, the headphones don't take too long to die out. The oh so famous inner copper wiring falling out of the headphones is really infuriating. For a long time Sony has decided to not rectify this problem, yet still have the gall to add a high price tag. It's unfortunate as the sound quality is of the highest standard. This is definitely an avoidable product.
