As a pro pianist & bassist, I had a few specific requirements for a particular pair of ear buds used specifically for daily music playback & voice conversation on my iPhone. SOUND QUALITY - My personalized test.. I produced a music track with a mix of 15 acoustic/digital instruments. My ear needed to be able distinguish each instrument on the track played in Apple Lossless format from my iPhone at 75% volume level & meet my high standards in terms of sound quality. COMFORT & FIT - Must stay securely in place within my ears during average motion (walking, etc) Let me say this... these earbuds met my requirements & more! In terms of sound quality, the Extra Bass Design & 12mm driver produce an low end that does not bleed into the mix nor overpower the mids or highs. The tonal balance is nice with a focus on clarity & spaciousness apparent at all listening levels. In terms of comfort & fit, I was surprised to feel how light and evenly balanced they were (I figured the 12mm driver would add unwanted weight at the tip but was wrong). These buds fit in my ear canal better than any pair I've ever tried. The seal was created immediately without having to be forced or continuously pushed in. In my opinion, these earbuds are definitely worth giving serious consideration (especially at their reasonable price point.)

They sound good and the bass response is pretty good. I have to say the fit is kind of garbage. I has to use the gel heads from another pair of headphones are the ones they come with are stiff and too big, even the extra ones it come with. Also I have had them for 3 months and they are already breaking. The 3.5mm jack is not properly working so in order for them to connect properly I have to put them at such angle that allows the contacts to work. Also they look weird, when you are walking in public you will look funny with this in your ears. When it comes to sound isolation they are great, I can mow my lawn and still hear my music at a medium to high volume without missing out. The inline controller is also lack luster, it rarely changes songs when I want too and most of the time just pauses my music then skip the song.

    Comments about Sony Red Extra Bass Headphones:

    I bought these headphones about a year ago and has used them every single day since... I even bought a second pair in case they would break(which they didn't yet even after a year of intense use). Great sound, build and look! Especially for the price.

    Comments about Sony Red Extra Bass Headphones:

    So first wen i tried these i was blow away by the base. Its incredible. And i love how they seel all the noise that surrounds you. All you can here is the music or the sound you are playing. The quality is a 9 out of 10 for me the base is a 9 of 10 as well, the feel is great...it stays in the ear until you take it back out lol...doesnt fall out unless you decide to run a while..i ran and would push them back in a little bit every 30 min. In conclusion these are some crazy nice earbuds...however one bud stopped working about 7 months later but im sure it was from me dropping them and stepping on them....i stepped on the so much and got them yanked out o much and they were in great condition...im thinking of buying another pair now but aome black ones now..i had red and they looked sick too.

    Comments about Sony Red Extra Bass Headphones:

    These ear buds are truly AMAZING. Ive had these for 6 months already but stuff started going downhill from there. My right ear bud wouldn't work properly, and I would have to adjust it to make it work. But the left ear bud is working perfectly fine. Butttttt I still give these a 4 out of 5 because ive had so much fun with them :)

    Great Earbuds!

    By

    Comments about Sony Red Extra Bass Headphones:

    I ignored this headset for a long time due to them being advertised as an "Extra Bass" headset. While they do have a little more bass (clean sounding bass) than other earbuds, they also have a surprising amount of balance and clarity.

    Comments about Sony Red Extra Bass Headphones:

    10/10 on bass. If you're into music with bass or even bass boosted, this headset will do it. For the price, you can't ask for more.
