5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value for Money headphones for jogging 18 Jan 2010
Great sound quality at a very good reasonable price and with a discreet comfortable look . I use it for the Gym to run on the treadmill (the only ones that really stick in your ears without having to re-adjust while running). I am buying this again, because I like them so much (I wore out the other ones after 3 years and lost the plastic cover). Strong buy for me, the other ones are overprices for the benefits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Earphones 2 Jan 2011
I have used these earphones almost every day for two years, this is my second pair or the same earphone and they are the best i have had. My ears are too small for in-ear earphones and i was searching for an alternative and these came up so i thought i'd try them and i love them. The very forst pair i got (about five years ago) were a bit big for my ears at first, and i must admit it was a bit painful as other reviewers have stated, but its as if my ears have grown to their size and now they are very comfortable.

The cable feels elastic, like rubber, it feels like you could drop them and they would bounce! Because of this characteristic, they can easily bend and will not tear (others i have had have done in the past).

The outside of the earpeice is made from a hard plastic and each earpeice states either 'R' or 'L', which conviniently stops you getting the two mixed up. The part which goes into the ear is made from a flexible soft - medium plasic which will not bend too easily, it goes perfectly into your ear every time, the material prevents them from ripping.

They are good for if you are listening to music on the go as the wire is very thin and discreet and is long enough not to pull on your clothes, but of course it depends also on how you are wearing the earphones.

The connector at the other end of the wire bends at a ninety degree angle (as shown on the picture) which is perfect for if you put your mp3 player/i-pod into your pocket as it will not bend or tear.

The earphones sound quality is quite bass heavy but treble and mid still cut through well, these earphones are great value for money and it is worth buying a backup whilst they are still available. 94/100

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Headphones 22 Feb 2010
By Ackbar
These headphones are great. This style has been around forever with Sony and I hope they never change it. The fit is good however it can feel a little big when you first put it on but you soon get accustomed to it and it doesn't fall out. I like to hear what's around me as well as my music especially when on the underground. These are great for that. They do not have the best base or sound quality but they are good enough. These are a great pair of utility headphones, great quality at a very good price. I'd buy these again...

4.0 out of 5 stars surpasses much higher price ear-buds 16 Dec 2007
for years i have been a big fan of Bose speaker systems, so when the company came out with their first and maybe their only in-ear headphone, i rushed out and bought one for $106, after a few months of listening i became truly disappointed, more so when i got a pair of Sony MDR-ED21 ear-bud which cost me only $18, let me hasten to say that high-quality sound is very important to me, and i can say without a doubt that the sony has outperformed the Bose by a wide margin, it is way more dynamic, transparent and has somewhat of a depth to the sound, i really wish i had the opportunity then to do a side-by-side comparison, because i would have returned the Bose, i must also add that i got the opportunity to listen to Bose more expensive noise cancelling headphones in an Apple Store and they are very bassy,just like the ones i bought, so folks who are in to drumming might like them, but others like me who like to hears vocals and treble should really look elsewhere, i know that these $18 babies will not compare to the likes of Sennheiser or the Etymotic er-4s, i havent had the chance to listen to those, but folks i conclude by saying, pay close attention to sound quality and not marketing hype by these overrated companies, i didnt give five stars here because i havent heard the Sennheiser or the Etymotic
good luck

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite low cost headphones 2 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I love to listen to music and usually carry around expensive IEMs.

But when it comes to something low cost that you can lug about or do sports in, these are perfect! A powerful bass and a very good grip in ear (i have small-ish ear canals).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very reliable 23 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
This is the 3rd pair of these in-ear phones that I have bought over the years, and they continue to emit an excellent, crystal-clear sound with a massive range in tone - deep resounding bass and clear (but not noisy) treble. The in-ear format sits snuggly in your ear with no discomfort whatsover, and for me, they sit very firmly too. I can turn my head vigorously from side to side knowing they won't fall out.

An excellent purchase from a well-known reliable manufacturer!
