I've had these headphones for about 3 months and use them a few times a week for cycling. I really wanted to be able to easily control my music and answer calls without having to touch my iPhone while I was out cycling, but I hated the stock Apple earbuds. These were a perfect solution for me and worked great... That was until my controls stopped working as some other people have mentioned in their reviews. The sound was still fine, but I couldn't use the control at all and I thought it was dead. Just as I was about to toss them in the trash I realized that I hadn't checked the headphone jack on my iPhone to make sure it was clean. It was not. I pulled out a fair amount of lint buildup by gently using the end of a paperclip that was probably blocking one of the connectors. I plugged my headphones back in and the contols on the headphones are working perfectly again and I'm back to being happy with my purchase. So to all of those out there who want to blame their problems on the headphones: CHECK THE HEADPHONE JACK ON YOUR PHONE OR IPOD FIRST TO MAKE SURE ITS CLEAN!

Do not purchase this earbuds! After 8 months of normal use, the left side stopped working. I called customer service and they were rude and not willing to help. Do yourself a favor and try another brand because judging from the reviews, this is a common occurrence. Why don't they fix this product!??

Ear candy for sure!!

By 

from Chino Valley, AZ

Comments about Sony In-Ear Black Earbuds:

There is just something about how Sony makes these earbuds that stands out from the rest. I like the way they fit and the way they sound. I am VERY particular about how music sounds and I have to say that these will deliver the sound you will like. They don't look very beefy but the last pair I had lasted over 5 years so I imagine these will do about the same.

Broke immediately after warranty expired

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about Sony In-Ear Black Earbuds:

I bought these headphones three months ago, and they have a 90-day manufacturers warranty. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that one side of the headphones seemed a bit fainter than the other. Then today (6/13/13), literally TWO DAYS after the warranty expired, one of the earbuds stopped working entirely. This is a situation in which I believe Sony should honor the warranty, yet thus far they have been unwilling to do so. Until they do, I'd give this product a one-star rating and would strongly recommend against purchasing these headphones.

Bad Choice

By 

from Centreville, VA

Comments about Sony In-Ear Black Earbuds:

I have used older models of these Sony earbuds over the years and have always liked them until now. I rarely write reviews on products but wanted to on this one. I've always liked fhaving the remote access for adjusting volume. However, a new feature has been added that allows you to tap the middle of the remote to turn the audio play on/off (sort of like a pause button). I listen to audiobooks and frequently I start to listen to my audiobook and find that it is already playing and has been for hours. The remote is easily accidentally bumped when putting my iPod away, etc. So, I have lost my place in my book and my battery is drained. It's driving me crazy! I can't stand this new device and would not recommend this model. In addition, the volume adjustments intermittently stop working. I hope that Sony removes the start/stop play feature from the remote. Sometimes, improvements do not improve the model. The previous model was better.

Interesting... But...

By 

from Riverside, CA

Comments about Sony In-Ear Black Earbuds:

I got this pair for Christmas and was thoroughly surprised. I wasn't expecting much though for a $40 set with a remote, which is extremely nice to have, I was expecting a better change than the stock iPhone headphones.... And there was change alright. The bass was brought out a little more but not to the point of where it gets annoying, but the mods were pretty much left the same. The Highs around 5kHz+ made me wince everytime I had my headphones at normal level. They hurt and now I have to get used to listening to my headphones lower because Spotify doesn't have an Equalizer. Other than that, the headphones are good and you get what you pay for...

Good, BUT

By 

from northern NY

Comments about Sony In-Ear Black Earbuds:

I like the earbuds for their fit and convenience. However, this product is not made to last, and they're relatively expensive. I am on my third pair in 8 months. Typically, the left earbud (where the volume control, microphone, etc. are located) stop working, making the earbuds mono.

Perfect for a lefty, haha!

By 

from Minnetonka. MN

Pros

  • Great sound quality, no earbud problems (I don't blast it like these other kids do), fruit nice

Cons

  • Volume up mini-spring inside remote broke after more than a year of use

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony In-Ear Black Earbuds:

    Love the sound, blocks out some noise, not too much bass. The only problem I could find with it was, in more than good year of frequent use; a spring for the "+" and the middle are failing in the remote. By the way, I am a lefty, and having the remote on the left earbud cord made this absolutely perfect for me!

    Disappointed!!!

    By 

    from UK

    Pros

    • When they worked they were quite good apart from the usual ear strain after about 1hour of listening

    Cons

    • Extremely poor quality

    Best Uses

      Comments about Sony In-Ear Black Earbuds:

      I have always been a loyal Sony customer, buying thier products over their competitors and now this is what I get in return... After owning a pair of these earphones the right side (the side that does not have the remote attached) is now officially dead, I have always treated my products especially the Sony ones like my prized possession so I made sure that nothing went wrong with them like if it ever rained I would store them away if I'm out an about and now all of a sudden the one side randomly (with a mind of its own) decides to just stop functioning. All I can follow up from that is disappointed very disappointed.

      Amazing

      By 

      from Seoul

      Comments about Sony In-Ear Black Earbuds:

      I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to do so after using them for a week now. I bought many different in-ear's over the past 3 years, from relatively inexpensive to really expensive, and none were really,,, perfect. Either uncomfortable with good sound or the other way round. These fit like they were molded in my ears, and the sound is better than most i ever heard. If i was a religious man i would have thanked God.
