Great fit and rich sound

I own 2 sets of these. Have them in all day long at the office. Very comfortable. Easy in and out. The sound is rich and well balanced. Not too heavy on the bass, but hits the spot. Highs and mids are well pronounced and clear. Cable is very good quality and robustness. Excellent for calls as well - never had any complaints from a person on the other end.

The Sony Extra Bass In-Ear Sound Isolating Headphones was as advertised. I'll buy it again if it's broke. So far so good I only have for 2 weeks.

Best head phones

Well I got these headphones because my apple ones keep felling out my ear and i am def from one ear I got this on Black Friday when I opened them they did not fit me then I changed the to small size because in was in the box then I put them on it fit after I tried listening music then my right the one that I can hear from was so loud music this are the best head phones I have bought.

Luv it

I give it two ✌ thumbs up and 4 stars sound is great

  • from Dartmouth, NS

excellent sound

I just bought these yesterday as a hopefully (better) replacement over my Apple supplied ear buds. I find the Apple ones just dont stay in very well. These ear buds sound much better than I was hoping in several categories: 1) about 30-40% more efficient (therefore less volume to achieve the same sound level) 2) a lot more bass (as expected) but a very clean rich, non-muddy bass 3) a lot cleaner high notes as well (cymbals, etc), this I wasnt expecting. Overall I am very impressed with these little ear buds, the sound is getting close in quality to my over-the-ear Sennheiser headphones. Sony has done a very good job in making these ear headphones.. If you can get them on sale they are very good value. Highly recommended.

Sony in-ear headphone review

These in-ear headphones are quite good, especially considering the discounted price. I bought 2 pairs and am very pleased with them. Sound quality merits an easy 4 stars, while comfort merits 4.5 stars.

  • from Toronto, ON

  • from Vernon, BC

Best deal at this price.!!

Best ear phone u can get at this price

  • from Vancouver, BC

Fantastic buds for the price point

These are a really good pair of ear buds, all around. They do look a bit weird with the angular design but are still extremely comfortable. They have really good sound cancellation and the added bass amplifier makes high bass songs sound massive. They are also good for gaming on the go. A couple things I didn't like about these were: even though they have a flat cord, they can still tangle easily if tossed in a ball and the media button can be a bit unresponsive at times. Overall very good product.

  • from Courtenay, BC

Excellent earbuds

I always buy high end audio products. I've easily spent more than twice the cost on earbuds before. These are excellent and very reasonably priced.
