    I like the bass for listening to good rock and the fit is perfect when matched to correct buds which are supplied.

    I was quite happy with these after they arrived but I didn’t bother reviewing …after all there are ton of other good reviews on this. My attitude however changed after I found these tangled up inside the drum of my dryer machine…my wife without searching my pockets had thrown my shorts in the washing machine and then the dryer…when I found these inside the dryer they were caught in the tiny groove between the drum and the body and releasing them was so hard that I almost reached for a pair of scissors…but I didn’t. Then after the release I looked at the poor thing; in some parts the rubber hosing was chewed up to such a degree that the metal wiring was exposed..I made a vow that if they still work then I’m going to write a 5 star review…and you guessed it, they worked flawlessly!! After being submerged in hot water and soap for over 3 hours+ hot air and tumble for over 1.5 hours these earbuds still work like new!! I don’t know what else to tell you but for my money this was well worth and more. I’m going to order a second one just in case I lose this.

    I’ve had these for about two months now, and they’re still my favourite (but most expensive) earbuds I have. I’m not the biggest audiophile but from what I’ve heard, the sound quality on these is superb, it’s incomparable to earbuds that cost just as much or even more. The highs are crisp, the mid is groovy and the bass is just extraordinary. Sound isolation is also very good. Overall these earbuds provide a good immersive experience when listening to any genre of music. But this comes with a cost: they’re a LOT bigger than what I thought they would be. They’re very noticeable in my ears when I wear them and compared to my old Sony earbuds which were tiny and very compact, I have to take extra care of these ones when I hold them because their size makes them feel vulnerable to damage.
    Speaking of damage, the reason I’m giving these four stars is because of their build quality. It’s only been two months since I had them and I already notice some problems with the wire i.e. if I move the wire around in specific places while listening, the audio cuts out. It annoys me because there is no exterior damage visible from the outside, just the wiring inside the cable that’s sketchy.
    Overall, these earbuds are worth the money in terms of sound quality, but the build quality isn’t up to par with other earbuds I’ve seen with the same price. A great buy however!

    Good headphones for the price you pay.

    – The Bass is indeed extra on this. You can really feel it on bass-heavy songs, it is a cool experience.
    – The mids are even, and quite distinguishable.
    – The cable is flat, so it does not seem to tangle as easily as other headphones I have owned.
    – The remote button is configurable with an app, so you can set it to do whatever you like. I have mine set to Play/Pause, Next Track, and Previous Track.

    – The highs can get a little blown out. It is not the worst I have heard, and is pretty remedied with some audio levels adjustment.

    Overall, great headphones, especially for heavy bass music. Would have liked more refined highs, but for the price I think these are great value.

    Ditch your Apple EarPods / Samsung Headphones and buy these as an upgrade. Great pair of wired in ear headphones, with a solid amount of bass. Wish they could’ve put volume controls on the mic/pause button, but it is what it is.

    The packaging is great, and the included carry pouch is a must.

    Trust me, you won’t want to go back to your stock earphones after you listen to these.

    Powerful sound for a low cost. (I got them for ~$25 CAD)

    I’m writing this review as a bit of an audiophile. I don’t have a lot of experience with quality headphones but I can say that these lack clarity no matter how you equalize your devices. I’ve tried them on cheap MP3 players and also with my new computer which has a good quality sound card. I can’t seem to make them sound great.

    On the other hand, the build quality is good and they do their job, that’s why 3 stars. The price point is fair as well. I wish I could give 3.5.

    I have had complaints about the microphone not working that well, which may be because of the cheap cellphone I have.

    I was considering another brand at a similar price point at the time of purchase, I believe it was Sennheiser, and I regret not going with them. I’ve had good experiences with Panasonic before, but those were stereo headphones so that may have made a big difference.

    I can’t say that I will be buying Sony headphones again in the foreseeable future. If your budget is low then these are just fine, but I recommend a different brand at the same price point. Durability-wise these are good though.

    I bought these after reading some positive reviews online. Unfortunately I am extremely disappointed with these headphones. There are two major issues with these:

    1. They are uncomfortable in the ears after being worn for a fairly short time (15-30 minutes for me). This may come down to sizing and how they happen to fit for me, but this was not ideal as I have tried many other headphones without this issue.
    2. More importantly – less than 6 months after purchase the left earphone has stopped producing sound entirely. This is with occasional use (not every day) and with no snags or impacts, etc. This is a shockingly low amount of time for headphones at this price point – while I wouldn’t expect them to last a lifetime, I have had $10 headphones that lasted far longer. The durability is extremely disappointing and I was even more dismayed to find that these headphones only come with a minuscule 3 month warranty.

    I cannot recommend these based on longevity alone. There are far better buys at this price point that won’t fail within 6 months of use and still be outside of warranty.

    I bought these for my wife because I have a similar pair of Sony earphones. For the money, these are superb, and I wish I’d bought another pair at the time.
