Pros Good bass, good sound quality
Cons Tremble lacking. Volume control is pointless
Wish it was a case instead of a bag to hold my headphone pieces.
Summary For the price these are probably one of the best sub $50 pair of headphones i owned.
Pros Sound quality is great. I was very satisfied with the bass, natural noise cancellation and the additional features you wouldn't expect on a pair of headphones at this price.
Summary I used these headphones for about 6mos and was very sad when they slowly deteriorated.... it started when the bottom half of the wire got exposed a little whenever it pulled out of the volume control in the middle of the cable. Simple fix was to open the control a bit and push the wire back in. This worked for about a month and then it became bothersome. The dumb thing came out every time I used them! I admit I use my headphones ALOT. I'm a college student, so I walk to class listening to music, I listen around the house, doing homework, and wrap them up whenever I stick my mp3 player in my pocket, so essentially I'm probably hard on headphones.
So if you're ANYWHERE near this hard on in-ear headphones, get a different pair. Even if you stick with this price range, the volume control does more harm than good, since it makes the cord less durable.
Pros relatively inexpensive replacements
Cons extra small earbud size not available
Summary the package insert talked about the ability to purchase an extra set of earbuds to be able to get the extra small size, but when i contacted sony they weren't available. i didn't know i had such a narrow ear canal! i also find that the sound is not very loud, but that may be related to earbuds that aren't quite fitting right.
Pros Comfortable, Great Quality
Cons Don't Last for a long time.
Summary Very good headphones for a great price. once again they broke in a month.
