    Amazing Set of Earbuds. Excellent product. I’ve had these for a few months and have had no problems with it. The sound is superb for the price and the earbuds stay in place fairly well, no issues there. The design did seem strange at first but I didn’t mind after a few uses. The wires do get tangled often but that’s avoidable depending on how you wrap it up. Also I don’t really need the mic feature, I prefer just pure audio earbuds. So in summary, minor issues mostly related to personal preference but nothing wrong with the product, works as expected and sound is great.

    Build Quality is Cheap and Terrible. When I first received this it didn’t come with a carry pouch or case which is downer but what really disappointed me was it had already had signs like it was put together terribly and 2 months later pieces of it falling apart which is horrible…I really don’t recommend buying these specific earbuds.

    The volume and on/off button fell off. I bought the product three month ago. At the beggining the product was amazing. Great sound, quality and very confy. I’m a heavy user since I use this daily on my way to work. Unfortunately last week the volume control button fell off on the street, on the following week (this week) now the power button fell off. In other works, now I have a headphone that I cannot raise/down the volume because I dont have the button and also I cannot turn off or on for the same reason. The headphones never drop from my hands and I’m very carrefully with it. I’m not happy with this, I need this headphone for my daily routines and now I dont have anything because of the quality of the product. It would be great if Sony could help me to solve this.

    Great Device!!!! I brought theseheadphones as a treat to myself, when it comes to Sony products I am a bit biased in terms of i have always trusted this brand. Well needless to say i was not dissappointed when purchasing this product, OMG my only regret is not purchasing this earlier… Job well done Sony…

  5. Gotta have bass

    Sounds great but parts falling off. Within a month of buying these, the on/off power button fell off. A month later, the button for volume control and song skipping also fell off. The entire reason I bought wireless headphone was so that my phone could stay tucked away during workouts and I could change volume and skip songs through the headset itself. Now these features are completely inaccessible because of faulty craftsmanship. The sound is great but parts falling off is a deal breaker for me. Filed a warranty claim with Sony; we’ll see what happens. If I were to purchase these again, I would make sure I bought an extended warranty from the retailer.

    Excellent for the price. Excellent earbuds, good quality, and really good bass. I use it every day during commute and it is really excellent one considering the price. I have seen more expensive headphones sound really poorly compared to this one. You won’t regret it. My only complaint is that Sony could probably give a small case instead of the pouch bag.

    Great audio. 5 stars for the sound quality but I would’ve really appreciated if they’ve provided build quality As per the amount they’re charging for it. I Have been using it since last 1 year but outer covers condition is truly bad. It started remove all of a sudden…

    Bad mic and poor build quality of buttons. I bought this sometime ago but hardly used them. They were in the box and I still have untouched all accessories in the box. They never even fell but one day the power button went missing and because it’s too tiny failed to find it. Since then the headphones are useless. Read many reviews now that this model has power button and volume button issue. With many users facing this issue after few months of purchase. I am a loyal Sony customer having its products for decades. From PS1 to PS4 and old dvd based surround system and TVs. Sad to face this issue it was never expected from Sony.

    Plus from the very first day it’s mic was useless. Whenever I tried to make a call the other person wasn’t able to hear me.

    Great sound and durable. This is my third pair of these headphones and wouldn’t buy anything else. I tried all the other high end sport earbuds and these Sony’s are by far the best. I’m on my third pair only because I wear them on the jobsite. Don’t know of any earbuds that would survive having a skytrac running over them. The sound quality is amazing. The 2 flaws I have come across with all 3 pairs is the on/off rubber button only lasts about a month before coming off. on/off still works just no rubber cover. The other is mic placement. People have a hard time hearing me during calls if there is any background noise to speak of. Still, i think they’re fantastic and well worth the money.

    Superior travel and work headphones. Chose this model while looking for a very discrete, good quality earphones that I could use for traveling. Included in the kit are a nice pouch bag and 4 pairs of silicone earpieces. The 3.5 mm terminal is ‘L’ shaped and thin. The cable is long enough to reach the side pocket of cargo pants comfortably. A slider is provided to adjust the aperture of the ‘Y’. The earphones fit very properly. The Right earphone is identified with a very discrete red dot, but no tactile marks are provided. However, once you remember the control button (the ‘multi-function button’) is on the Left side, this is no longer an issue.

    This model delivers superior clarity during phone calls, which is something not properly advertised but that is immensely appreciated, if you like me spend a lot of time on the phone for work and during traveling, and need proper sound cancelling. For calls, the button on the remote controls answering and hanging up with precision, but it can’t control volume (I didn’t try the Smart Key downloadable app).

    However, where this model shines is for music playback, where the extra bass features become quickly evident. Using these earphones with the apple music on an android phone, finally allowed me to use the equalizer functions and notice differences between settings that simply were impossible to appreciate with other in ear headphones I had previously tried. The sound is very rich, subtle sounds are reproduced clearly (i.e. the clash of wooden drumsticks), and the bass is just perfect in a way that they don’t choke the higher sounds. Amazing.

    Finally, these earphones have something else: They’re really comfortable. They are unnoticeable even after prolonged day long use, making them a perfect choice for long flights and transits, either with your smartphone streaming service, or a Walkman.

    I have three of these. Great sound, great mic.I have one to leave in the office, one to carry in my bag, and one for at home. Everyone I speak with using the headset mic says the sound is loud and clear.Great for listening to music as well.I don’t like ear pods – the never stay in and I would lose them.Although having a cord has a few drawbacks, I always know were the ear pieces will be.

    Sound quality it horrible. For the price, I obviously wasn’t expecting anything mind blowing, but this was absolutely horrible. Compared to my $30 Jaylab Bluetooth earphones, the high end in these are so “blurred” and basically non-existent. If you’re planning to listen to music with these, literally the only good thing is the bass, but every other part of the spectrum beyond the bass completely ruins it. Nothing at all sounds clear with these despite me trying multiple songs and multiple EQ options in my music player app, nothing can save these from sounding the way they do.

    Best wired earphone! This is such a powerful earphone. At this price range, it is the best wired earphone I have ever used. I’ll update to see whether it’s durable. Earphone usually don’t last longer than 6 months in my hands. The sound quantity is even better than over $100 earphone I tested. Really extra bass indeed.

    Second pair of the same, both died fairly quickly. I love these headphones for the sound quality and the fit in my ear. My ears are so sensitive, and I wear headphones 8-10 hours a day for work. However, the first pair I bought that were black/red lasted like 4-5 months. I thought maybe it was just me and switching back and forth between my desktop and laptop. So I figured I would try them again and just buy a pair to keep with my laptop. Ive had the new pair for like two weeks just with my laptop and theyre already dead smh. For decently priced headphones Im disappointed. I didnt want to have to spend the money on Bose, but I guess I have no choice.

    Getting static sound from them after less than a month of use. I decided to buy a higher quality earbud instead of my cheap $5 ones after those croaked. Well, they did sound good, but after less than a month of use, I am already getting static noise from them.Extremely disappointed and will not recommend to others.

    Great Earbuds. I have small ears and I really appreciate the XS bud size. Not many earbuds even offer this smallest size. This is my second pair as my first ones got lost in a move. I missed them so much I just had to buy another set.Answering the cellphone on them works great too. You just press the little button and the phone answers the call. People don’t seem to notice any problem with when I talk to them on it.

    These things rock. I have worn out two or three pairs of these from constant use. The other four pairs were chewed on by my cat who seems to find them no matter where I hide them.Bass response is truly wonderful if you can get one of the three earbud sizes to match your ear. The depth of Bass seems directly related to how well it is seated in your ear.There seems to be almost a full octave lower that comes through, exposing the listener to the richness of songs I never knew had such a deep bass part.It was apparently redesigned or updated recently. It is just as good if not better. The bass clarity amazes me to this day for something so small.If you are comparing headphones, use the studio version ofGreta Van Fleet’s “Broken Bells.”

    Fine at first, 2 months later it’s half broken. At first these were fine, perfect for my needs. 2 Months later, however, the left ear only barely functions. By barely functions, I mean that I have to bend the cable in a weird way to make audio come through. I guess I can duct-tape the bent cable to allow it to continue to function, but this shouldn’t be an issue 2 months in.It appears the cabling is very fragile.I keep this at my desk plugged into my computer, I don’t take them out or stuff them in a backpack. It just sits at my desk. connected to my desktop PC all the time.Pretty disappointed in these.

    Excellent gaming earbuds. I cannot believe the difference in sound quality compared to my previous earbuds (although those were under $20). These are comfortable and have outstanding audio for gaming on my X Box, comparable to the $100+ options but half the price. Highly recommend!

    Great sound for the price. Just received these in the mail yesterday and was impressed with the sound quality. After using a set of AKG for two years until the mic started cutting out and the right side stopped working I felt it was time to invest on another pair. I couldn’t find another set of AKG and what is available online are the cheap fakes I decided to see what was out there. After a lot of comparing other brands in the budget I set, I narrowed things down between another brand and Sony. I decided on the Sony’s because in the past I had had several headphones that lasted a few years and also Sony’s reputation for quality products. I’m quite confident that these will last two years of not more
