Great sound and bass, frustrating ergonomics

I got these from Best Buy at an excellent price during a sale several months back so I've had time to really get used to these headphones and form an honest opinion. To make a long story short, these earbuds perform in all areas except the one I feared they'd get wrong right from the start; COMFORT. This is all due to the wire, which frankly is STUPID, given that this is supposed to be a wireless product and the manufacturer should be making as much effort as possible to make that wire as discreet as possible. This wire however is sheathed in a hard, semi-flexible plastic that does not fully relax, even after weeks and months of use, so it does not fall evenly behind the head. Inexplicably, the cable favours the left side, bunching up and constantly pulling the right earbud out of position. It's also far too long, catching on shirt and jacket collars. The earbud inner-ear "hooks" are OK but they can't fully compensate for the lopsided drag the wire creates. So many cheaper, modern Bluetooth headsets have gotten this right in various ways so it is really surprising to have a veteran like Sony still get this wrong. A great headset ruined by a crappy wire and poor ergonomics.
