I have owned this headset for only one day, so I cannot address its durability. But I read the other reviews here and I have a very different opinion on its fit and sound quality. I have trouble finding an earbud that fits into my ears, everything is too large and ends up falling right out. I have, therefore, always used a headset that sits on my head and over my ears rather than earbuds. But this style fits around the ear, is slightly adjustable for size and somehow the bud is small enough to fit comfortably and stay in place. It doesn't look smaller, so maybe it's the design. I have found most headsets to be somewhat lacking in a really good bass response, but this is pretty good. The way you place it does seem to matter, but once I have it where I want it, it stays put and the sound quality is very acceptable.

Sony, I love most of your products, but this is terrible rubbish. In other words, it’s trash, garbage and all the other descriptives. I have a list of problems to share about this product; the first being that they are not sweat-proof. The sound dies if a drop gets through the holes to the driver. The second failing is the isolation. There isn’t any. I was able to have a full conversation with my sister listening to Rush(rock band) with my iPod at just over half volume. There is no earbud, the driver just sits in you ear cavity with no seal, and blasts noise in the general direction of your ear canal. Next is the sound quality; bass does not exist in these headphones, the mids and highs have no clarity, because there is no seal, and all of it is full of static. After you give these a good douse of sweat there is no sound quality, because there is no sound. Next up, the adjustable band. If the band had a smooth curve, it might have worked. Instead, they put a wave in the band halfway down that digs into the back of my ears enough to give my a headache after half an hour, no matter how I adjusted it. It wasn’t just me either, I had ten others try it on, and all of them said the same. Now, the wire is thin and I suspect it will break easily. The shirt-clip is not attached to the wire, and detaches every time you open it. So if you want to adjust the clip, first you have to thread the wire back through it. Because of this, the clip was always falling off. Honestly, your better off with those poor airline earbuds. These headphones did end up in the trash can (rubbish bin). (Please don’t pay attention to Schnietzi’s review. He is the only person with actual grammar that gave above two stars, and I find myself very suspicious of that. Either he’s paid to review it, since he didn’t actually list those (different brands), or he meant to review a different set of earbuds. Seriously though, don’t waste your money. If you want good earbud sound, then buy Sony’s MDR-EX10LP. Those are great sound $14.99, and unless you sweat a ridiculous amount or run in the rain, they will probably survive your workout. Otherwise, buy more expensive earbuds or look to a different brand. In my experience, JayBird BlueBuds and FreedomSprint are the best workout headphones, give them a look. Sony, these are the things I want to see change on these earbuds: A smooth band, and actual seal, the same driver as the EX10LP or EX37B, an attached shirt-clip, and most importantly, make it sweat-proof!

    stays in ear but lost sound on one side

    By 

    from Undisclosed

    I just bought a 2nd pair after using the 1st set for one year. On my Sony Walkman NMZ-B183F, the 1st pair has deteriorated (significantly in the right ear) so I have to have them at 30 volume on the Walkman. I recall they were 26 at first. The brand new ones used today, play the same song from the same Walkman at 23 and are louder. I run and cycle with them and they occasionally get wet (but not soaked). Sound quality is good, especially bass. They stay in my ears pretty well but lots of wind noise on the bike like many other earphones. What is the warranty on my new ones? There is no indication on the instructions or the package.

        Lost sound in one speaker after 11 months.

        By 

        from Melbourne VIC 3058, Australia

        After somewhat irregular use one of the speakers stopped working. The headphones never really had a great sound output to begin with but with one side not working they are basically useless and destined for the bin. Kind of expected better quality from Sony, even for a low end product.
