Over Ear and Retractable,
This review is from: Sony MDRQ66 Over Ear Type Black (Accessory)
I'm about to purchase my second pair of these. The first pair I bought in 2005 from HMV in Glasgow and have lasted me this long. I think that's pretty reasonable which is why I'm buying the exact same pair again.
They fit comfortably (for me) over the ear, as I find in the ear very uncomfortable.
The cables retract using a button and spring like mechanism meaning you avoid that snakes wedding you get with other ear phones.
The sound quality is excellent and you can have your music fairly loud without bothering other people. I regularly check with fellow train passengers to make sure they can't hear anything and usually that's the case.
They take a good battering too - there's many times I've had one of the over ear pieces pulled off my ear when getting the cable caught on something and assuming they were broken I was then please to find they weren't.
My 2005 pair have only stopped work in the last week, with one of the ear's not working properly and having to swizzle the jack in the socket.
I couldn't recommend these more.
