Sounds great5 Posted by: from: on After losing my over ear noise cancelling headphones, I decided to get something smaller (i.e. tired of the bulk of the others too). In search of something that blocked some ambient for flights and sounded great. These do knock down ambient good but with no volume, you can definitely hear the sound of engines and such. This was expected..Once on, It was fantastic. Sound quality is great...perfect mid range...not too much base..not too much treble. I enjoyed it.

Best bang for buck earbuds5 Posted by: from: Florida on Got these on clearance for a killer price. Absolutely the best earbuds i have ever owned. Hybrid drivers are amazing. Better than shure 215s by a long shot.

Great Earbuds5 Posted by: from: on So got these at my local BestBuy for half the list price. I'm guessing there is a new one coming. I lost my Sony NC over ear headphones..likely taking them out while travelling. Anyway, I wanted something a bit more transportable that could seal some outside sound out. I have not flown with these yet (next week) but they seem to be doing a great job isolated some external sound. The sound is fantastic to me. It is very well balanced and not overwhelming me with any particular frequency in my ear. I'm not very picky in the sound but these are sounding great.

High quality earbuds4 Posted by: from: Indianapolis, IN on These sound fantastic! Way better than any earbuds I've had before. The only downside for me is their size; they are lightweight, but they stick out of the ear further than I'd prefer.

excellent5 Posted by: from: on Bought to replace Bower and Wilkins C5 and love them! I've had Bose, Beats, Sennheiser and numerous other mid to upper level sets and these Sonys are on par or exceed the others. Just make sure to get a good fit. Only thing missing is some type of good retention device for gym use.

Rather good earbuds5 Posted by: from: on I was interested in a new pair of decent earbuds and I'm a believer in Sony's ability to make some seriously great gear. I'm a long-time owner and listener of the venerable MDR-7506 headphones which are absolutely spectacular. These buds, while quite a bit more expensive, are just about the equal of the 7506. Not quite there but its an apples to oranges comparison. Pretty good execution on Sony's part.
