Sony Mid-Range In-Ear Headphones with Deep Bass fo&hellip by Sony
After having a pair of Sennheiser headphones that had lasted about 3-4 years, the next two pairs I had bought to replace them lasted about a combined 6 months between them. So I decided against risking another 40 or so on another pair of Sennheiser's and instead looked at some cheaper options. Feeling that if they did only last a few months, at least it would only be 10-15 I had burned through.

Much to my pleasant surprise, they have not only lasted, almost a year now since I bought them with no drop in performance. As someone who listens to their MP3 almost everyday for an extended period of several hours, this is impressive. But in terms of sound quality they are in fact the… Read more

For the record, I am far from a "Belieber," although nor have I wasted time hating on this kid. But after hearing the slick "Boyfriend" and the heavy beat on "As Long As You Love Me." I wanted to give this a listen, just like Justin Timberlake had drawn me in a decade ago with "Like I Love You."

Yes, this album has it's flaws. It's easy to deride the often simplistic lyrics and some may say the "Believe" mantra is a little cheesy. But being in the tough spot of trying to appease his mostly "Tweener" fan base, whilst also trying to appeal to a wider audience, this is as well as you could hope to pull it off.

Justin walks the line of trying to be more mature, without… Read more
