In terms of sound quality, these headphones are good. This particular product is provided in bulk packaging. There doesn't seem to be a downside to going this route as opposed to paying the full price for the commercially packaged versions which sell for 2-3x as much on Amazon. Not shown in the picture, they also come with a nifty little felt carrying bag, which is useful.I purchased these particular headphones after my Shures started fraying at the point where the headphone meets the wire. I wa...

The design and price of these earphones may not be ideal for every person or every device, but it suits my needs almost perfectly. Here's the lowdown:The headset itself has a very short cord, only 22.5 inches from jack to left earbud. Another 21 inches of cord passes from the left earbud, behind the neck, to the right earbud. This short length lets me clip my iPod shuffle to my shirt collar with very little extra cord. The extra 2.5 feet of extension cord will let me put my iPod into my fron...

Sorry for the outburst, but so many of these reviews complain about the asymmetric wire or how the left ear bud pulls out while jogging. Unlike symmetric ear buds, these are designed to drape the right ear bud chord across the BACK of your neck. This configuration takes almost all the weight of the chord off the earbuds, a distinct advantage over typical symmetric-chorded ear buds. Also, if you pull your earbuds out for a moment, they will hang naturally from your neck and stay there rather t...

SOUND: These exist to reproduce sound. They give nice crisp highs and manage the bass so well I had to change my equalization profile. I've not heard better ear buds. The only headphones I've had that sounded better were full-sized, ear-enclosing models that cost upwards of $100.ERGONOMICS: These fit my ears quite comfortably. They also function as earplugs when I sleep ... earplugs that play music!CABLE: Here's the weird part - instead of a normal "Y" between ears, Sony felt compelled to make o...

I'll admit it, these are the best sounding bud style headphones I've ever used. What I didn't like was the fact that the wiring basically rotted on me, for lack of a better word. Before I knew it, there were entire lengths of cable that were exposed when the shielding began to deteriorate. And this wasn't even three months after I purchased them that this began to happen.The headphones still worked but it becomes a bit of a drag when you're listening to headphones that look like something you fi...

The sound quality is good and, when riding a bike or the subway, these are the smallest, best, outside-noise-excluding headphones I've worn. But Sony just can't figure out the cords! This one comes with an extension, but without it the cord ends at mid-torso: unless you're wearing a Shuffle and don't plan on moving your head, you will need the extension. The extension is of course too long and, being in two parts, is bound to get fouled up. Another disappointment from Sony.

Do not sweat when you wear these. If you live in Florida do not buy these. The thin rubber covering the wire from the earbud to the junction of the left-right cords will not withstand human sweat. It then deteriorates upon friction with head, hair, skin, clothes, you name it. Worth maybe $10 because you WILL have to replace them. However, MasterCard will honor a replacement if you have Gold or Platinum. It is part of the guarantee. It will not take even one year for any amount of normal perspira...

I bought these headphones for my iPod to replace my broken original iPod headphones. What a mistake. The left and right cords after the "splitter" are wonkey and unequal (the left is about 6" long the right is abotu 14") so if (God forbid) you drop you iPod your left ear is in for quite a rip, compared to "normal" headpones where the jolt would be spread evenly. The encluded extesion cord is nice but, why not just make the cord longer to begin with? That's just one more bulky connector I have to...

Five stars! If there were almost no examples of short-cord earbuds on the market, I would rate this as four stars, docking the rating one star for the lackluster dynamic performance, docking it another star for the poor sound isolation, and adding back a star for its bargain price and for pain avoidance and safety. Pain and safety and earbuds? Yes. Some one has at last found a way to keep the cord from being ripped out of your ears by swinging gates, power equipment, door knobs, bicycle handleba...

I just purchased these headphones and I am amazed at the sound quality for the price, the bass actually punches and the highs are crispy! To get a bit technical the frequency range on them is 6 - 25k hz, and the $100 sony earbuds are only slightly better at 5 - 26k hz. So for a third of the price you basically get the same head phones! Happy with my purchase. Though the shure ec2's sure sound incredible, just not ready to shell out $100 for them at this point in time. PLEASE NOTE!!! Since writin...
