"A decent pair of headphones."3.5 starson by ahast
Pros: Okay sound...decent bass...
Cons: The cord is terrible, the clips are uncomfortable...
Summary: I bought these headphones after I lost my Etymotic E4P's and E6i's (they were in the same pouch) - I was on a TIGHT budget, and I was tight on time trying to catch a train, so I ran past the Sony store and grabbed the first mid-priced phones I could find.
First thing first: The cord is terrible. It is twisty as heck, and just a general pain to use. I find wearing these phones to be uncomfortable because of the way they clip to your ears, but it's livable.
The sound isn't too bad, for the price especially. The bass is there, but you'll notice the tighter the seal you have to your ears (push these things into your ears and hold), the more bass you seem to hear. So bass will vary from user to user, depending on how fat your ears are.
However, the highs are WAY too high, and the mids are too low. It sounds like you're missng half the vocals on some songs. With the muddy mid's, if you're listening to a song with a high-hat, or a clap effect, it really kicks your ear drums, and makes it uncomfortable to listen to.
