Stay clear. I expected better from a company like Sony.
All in all very good, the carry case they come with is a bit bulky and pointless as the headphones are rugged enough.
all in all a great pair of headphones for exercising in and good value for money in my opinion.
They come with a spare set of small and large buds with the medium buds fitted already to the phones. Also included is a rather large bulky plastic carry case thats strictly functional.
At the price I got them on Amazon (£21.94) they are an absolute steal! Also credit to amazon, I changed my delivery to Free Saver but they still came the next day! Very pleased!
However. These things are great.
They come with sets of different sized earphone, which is great for someone with weird ears like me, the sound quality is amazing, and the design is just cool! The only downsides? They can be a pain to put in the little case thing you get (but that's soo minor, they're mostly in my ears anyway!) and when you first put them in they can feel uncomfortable, but that feeling fades soon.....fantastic point about them: they can drown out the sound of the outside world pretty easily!
Brilliant headphones I say. Well worth the money.
Like a lot of other reviewers I wanted some reasonably good headphones that I could use for working out in the gym. When I got my first iPod a couple of years ago, I splashed out on some Ultimate Ears SuperFi Pros which are just fantastic, but had a habit of falling out of my ears when I was doing bench presses, sit-ups etc - i.e. anything that involves you in not being vertical. I therefore looked for some 'sport' headphones, and having read the reviews on Amazon plumped for the Sennheiser PMX80s.
I didn't expect the Sennheiser sound quality to be anywhere near that of the SuperFis (it isn't), but what was most annoying was that (again like a lot of other people) within 15-20 minutes of starting to exercise my ears were full of sweat and the sound from the headphones was virtually inaudible. I came to the conclusion that their design actually encourages sweat to run down into your ears. I therefore looked for something with a similar type of neckband to the Sennheisers but with earbuds like the SuperFis, and ended up purchasing the Sonys.
If you haven't used this type of headphone before, the bass quality depends a lot on how well the earbuds fit your ear, and I started with the medium pair. Sound quality was similar to the Sennheisers, although overall a little bit 'brighter' and with a much broader soundstage. Again though, the moment I started exercising, the earbuds would loosen in my ear, bass would drop off, and external noise became far more intrusive.Read more ›
