    4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, but certainly NOT nasty! 17 July 2007
    By Max TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Verified Purchase
    I've had these headphones for around two years now and only in the last few months or so have I noticed any wear in the sound quality. However, this is not surprising as I have been less than gentle with them. They've been thrown around, dropped, stuffed in a drawer, kicked, you name it. Remarkably they still worked fine for ages. The only problem now is the jack-plug sometimes needs twisted a bit in my Ipod when I start loosing sound in one ear. I will definitely be purchasing these headphones again as for 6 pounds the sound quality is well above that price, plus they are very robust, they are the most comfortable ear buds I have worn and they're cheap enough to restock once they go the way of the dodo. I should also mention that these headphones don't use the system of looping the wire round your neck, it is the standard parallel wire which I love.
    Definitely a recommended purchase, I doubt you'll find better headphones at this price.

    5.0 out of 5 stars good quality for good price 21 Feb 2006
    By A Customer
    Good sound quality, very low leakage and comfortable. Compared to headphones you might get with a personal radio or mp3 player, these are very comfortable, good quality headphones at a reasonable price.

    5.0 out of 5 stars An all round solid product 28 Mar 2006
    By A Customer
    These are the best headphones that are around from under 10.... they produce an excellent sound quality for the price and the simplicity of these particular sony headphones make the build quality up to a good standard because they can take more abuse compared to some of sony's flagship headphones models for around 30.
    i would definately recommend that you choose these headphones if you are a person who takes their music everywhere with you... because the low price means that you dont feel that you have to take extra special care of them all the time... and that dont break easily anyway.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money 18 Feb 2006
    I've had these headphones for years, and they've never failed to impress me. The sound quality is good, and they are sturdy and reliable. What more do you want?

    5.0 out of 5 stars Good solid earphones. 21 May 2008
    Verified Purchase
    Iv'e owned some of these for around 3 years now and they still work fine, brilliant biuld quality and strong all round sound performance. Bass is good for standard earbud shape and vocal reproduction is superb when listening to 192k WMA 9.2 files on my Zen vision m. They even seem to hide compression artifacts in MP3's and sound great on my laptop for movies espesially DVD's which naturally suffer from vocal drop out, with these it's simply not an issue. Even windows media player 11 sounds good. What a bargain, since writing this iv'e bought another pair for my laptop, sony's done it again, simply good in every way, theyre what I look for in earphones, comfortable, good all round sound and a nice rubbery cord which helps prevent tangeling

    5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain 28 Dec 2007
    By Sarah
    Verified Purchase
    Durable and very comfy to wear. Very good sound quality for the price. I have sat on them, yanked them out my ears and crushed them in my bag and they still work fine. Owned my last pair of cheap Sony headphones that were basically the same as these for years and years no problems before I finally broke them having managed to cut the wire with scissors. I much prefer Sony headphones to any others.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best value for money by far 22 Nov 2006
    For the price, these little beauties are gems amongst the vast selection of headphones on the market. I bought these headphones as a replacement for much more expensive ones, but the sound quality is as good (particularly the bass) for a fraction of the price. They seem fairly robust and remember that usually, the expensive headphones are just as vunerable to damage as cheaper models like these.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Sony Class 15 Dec 2004
    I have had these earphones for about a year now and they're still going strong. They don't rattle even at full volume and believe me these things with the right player go dead loud. The cord is about the right length if you have an mp3 player maybe a little short if you have a walkman. The only niggle I have is that even at a low sound setting people around you can hear clearly every word of the song which can be a little annoying. Love the colour scheme very classic, if your thinking of buying these then In would strongly recommend that you do!
