Pros Cheap, fantastic sound
Cons Don't have any
Summary I had read the reviews on this and just didn't want to believe that they were actually better than more expensive earbud headphones. I have had a pair of these for over a year, and the sound has always been fantastic, but my reasoning was that if they were more expensive that they had to be better? Wrong. I broke down and bought the Sony MDR-EX51LP's and immediatly decided to take them back. They can't hold a candle to the 828's. The 51's sound "tinny" and hardly no bass. The 828's actually seem to "vibrate" with the bass sound. Anyway, even with the price of these at most stores running around $10 which is $30 cheaper than the 51's, they are the better headphone as far as sound. These were both tested to the same music, and same mp3 player. Also had to turn the volume up higher on the 51's. Believe it or not, try it yourself, but the 828's are better sounding, comfortable and a lot cheaper..
Pros excellent sound, great price, comfortable
Cons wear out just like anything else
Summary I've been using these headphones for years. I work my headphones pretty hard. I need to repurchase these perhaps once every three or four years (blowout, short, etc). You will get no better sounding earbuds for the price and I'll continue re-buying them every couple years. They are fantasic!
Pros Wind up case. Sound quality. Price. *Short cord. (I wanted a short cord.)
Cons *Short cord. Bare bones with no volume control or any other extras.
Pros -Cool Design
-3.5mm standard connector
Cons -No noise canceling
Summary Fun Fact: the word "Sony" actually derived from the Latin word "sonus", meaning "sound"
And they really meant it.
I have had these earbuds for a long time and they always have spectacular sound. No matter what music I play, it is always crystal-clear audio. For ten dollars you can get an amazing set of magnetic Sony earbuds. They can be described in one word: amazing.
Pros Good overall sound, solid bass compared to other earbuds I've had. These are the best bang for the buck!
Cons Not quite the bass of an over the ear headphones but very nice indeed. Cord could be a bit longer, but is overall good for laptop use. Should come with extra pair of covers in case one rips (mine did), but no big deal.
Summary I've used Skullcandy from a friend (crap), AKG also from friend (ok), and a couple others that were all decent (Sennheiser, other Sony, JVC). I also have 2 over the ear style headphones (Sony and Sennheiser), and these earbuds hold their own nicely. You can't compare the clarity or bass reproduction to the Sennheisers, but neither can many supposedly "comparable" headphones. These lil guys are inexpensive, durable (had for couple years with NO issues), and very portable. I use them everyday with my laptop and they work awesome with everything (music, movies, good voice clarity for my college instructional videos, etc), very solid all around buy.
