Handles all aspects of audio very well, clear vocals, deep sharp bass, and amazing instrumentals. These earphones offer high quality sound at an average price i feel they're as good or better then the Bose ie2 whatevers with no bass and all treble. They are very balanced and very crisp, the only thing I'm not a fan of is the new design i makes them slighty uncomfortable after extended wear. Which can be a problem when your wearing headphones for 10+ hours a day at work and what not. But over all these earphones offer high quality and a reasonable price I would recommend them to anyone who asked. Thrasher

I don't know if anyone from Sony actually reads these reviews, but these headphones were terribly made. I've never had a problem with any other headphones regarding their fit. These headphones do not stay in your ear, especially when you do anything athletic. If you run in these, they begin falling out immediately. In fact, any sort of bounce in your step will cause these headphones to fall out of your ear . Additionally, the extension to the ordinary cord makes the cord too long so if you actually do anything athletic (aren't these headphones made for that purpose?) the cord becomes tangled or hits your leg or arms, etc. A terrible made product and a complete let down. For $20 it isnt a huge deal, but what a joke when Sony is supposedly known for quality products.

Second pair fails inside 1 year
Comments about Sony In-Ear Black Headphones:
I replaced these headphones with the same unit. I expected a Sony product to be reliable. This is the last Sony earphones I will ever purchase. A complete disappointment for both units.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've had a pair of these since Christmas and now it's July. Hey are very comfortable, sound good, and stay in your ears. I use them almost every day and as of about 2 days ago they have been excellent. On the downside, after a good 6 months with these awesome earbuds, they did break- when I plugged them in they were significantly quieter than they had been previously. I think that 6 months is very good for earbuds- I went to replace them and the ones I bought (that weren't Sony) broke after a day. I just went out and bought myself another pair of these in white and I'm using them now, they're great! Thanks Sony!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Best Low Price Headphones
from Minneapolis, MN 55435, USA
These are the best low price headphones for everyday use. They do not break, the sound is average, and best of all they cancel out noise! Not all noise is cancelled but it is as close as I have ever come. Obviously these would not compete with top of the line headphones but if you are just an everyday person who needs basic headphones, these are the best you will find.

Great sound terrible craftsmanship
from Bend, OR 97701, USA
I am on my third pair of this tiny buds. The right earbud keeps failing. Yes I know that $15 is a small price to pay but sheesh come on. If this pair fails I am DONE WITH SONY! What do I want? A working pair of buds that is all!
Can't be beat
I have had the same pair of earbuds for five years now and use them daily. Can't beat the price! If you looking for quality sound, this is the right choice- very full sound, awesome bass, and cancels background noise pretty well. I'm about to buy another pair because I am tired of all the disappointing (much more expensive) other brands of earbuds I have tried previously. Highly recommended.
from Canton, OH, USA
Great earbuds...I've bought Sony's before and I was looking for a set for under $25. There are quite a few brands that offer them under that price but when you look at the specs, Sony has them all beat.... Example, compare these Sony's with the Koss *The Plug Classic*. The sound difference is between night and day.....You'd expect Koss, being a company that is supposed to be known for sound equipment, to have a good product, but this Sony has them beat hands down for the sound, and they're the exact same price.

BEST HEADPHONES EVER.
from Rochester, NY
Whoever gave these headphones a 1/5 star rating simply doesn't know how to take care of headphones. Me being a teen and lazy and uncaring, used to break a LOT of headphones. I'd be replacing them every 3-6 months! Let me tell you a thing: I have had the SAME pair of THESE headphones for FOUR YEARS. MAYBE five. (I'm not sure exactly when I got them, I want to say jr year of high school and I'm a jr in college now.) THAT IS A LONG TIME for ONE PAIR of headphones! I could not be any more impressed! If you need decent, QUALITY headphones, THESE ARE THE ONES YOU WANT. The earbuds next to NEVER come off, they're durable and AMAZING. YOU GO, SONY. FOUR FOR YOU, SONY. I will never buy any other headphones again. Lemme tell you, I'm a hard person to impress. A+
from MontrÃ©al, Canada
I bought these in September. A month later, there was no sound coming from one of the earbuds. I had it changed at a sony store, as the warranty was still valid. Though, less than two months later, same problem. It is bad quality. I liked these earbuds because the sound was quite good for the price, but definitely, with such a low price, you don't have the long term quality that should come with it.
