    Fantastic Audio Quality, But...

    I'm giving these earbuds 3 instead of 5 stars because while they do sound pretty good, they fail miserably in their build quality, I bought these a while back after being truly disappointed in the newish EX14 earbuds which were to replace my EX15 which I loved! The EX14's sounded horrible by comparison. So I went back to bestbuy and bought these EX155 earbuds. As mentioned before the audio quality is really good on these! But the build quality isn't very good, the coloring on the housings is only a cheap plating of somekind, after a few weeks of use it started to scratch up in my pocket and eventually started to rub off a few weeks later. I replaced both sets of earbuds with JBL T110 for only $13. (the T110 sound just as good as the EX155 but with a little more bass heavy tuning). I wasted $30 on two pairs of Sony earbuds. Not going to make that mistake again, Sony won't get anymore money from me until they improve their materials. It's a shame because I only used to buy Sony products, in fact I still have my Sony D143 CD player from childhood. It still works great! Such a shame.

    The sound quality is good and at the time of purchase they were on sale for $19.99. The Apple headphones were $29.99 and although they have great sound quality, Apple earbuds are NOT made well either and also stop working rather quickly in my book. What is even worse, Apple has the audacity not to allow for the purchase of a warranty because they know they have a loyal fan base and I honestly believe Apple deliberately make the earbuds and some of their other products to only last a short while so loyal Apple consumers will just keep buying them like they are paper plates!! I miss Steve Jobs!!! Any who, Apple not standing behind their product, is the reason I purchased the Sony for my 14-yr old son. The Sony buds were cheaper, Sony is a good brand and committed enough to allow Best Buy to sell their award winning, in my books :) at least, product warranty. When the Sony’s stopped working in less than a month, we exchanged them with no hassle. I hope these work out. I have no desire to keep coming to the store to exchange them!!! I only want to come to Best Buy to buy, not exchange! If these fail in a short time too, I guess we will be exchanging them for another brand, any recommendations? So in conclusion, Best Buy gets 10 stars for their warranty and service and if you decide to chance it, I would recommend you buy from Best Buy and buy the warranty!! Will give an update in a few months. Hopefully these work out.

    Not loud enough IMO

    I was looking for a pair of earbuds with a mic, a distinctive color (curb the chances of someone mistaking these for theirs at work because we all have that coworker....) And a good enough sound for casual listening at an affordable price. These IMO are overpriced fashion earbuds. I've had cheaper Sony headphones, even fashion headphones at that with better performance and sound quality. Sometimes I'm in a mood to hear a song really loud, drowning out my background. No, I wasn't expecting noice canceling headphones. At their loudest these still seem kinda mute. I'm always left feeling that I need to turn my phone up, when I try the volume is usually already at its limit. I don't think I've tried these on any device outside of my phone but I should. I haven't really explored the button features. My usage is pretty basic: music/calls and controlling things from my headset. I caught these on sale, I believe for half off. These headphones aren't worth $30 or the $15 sale I got them for. Wouldn't recommend these to anyone looking for a nice quality afforded headphones. Even during phone conversations I've had trouble hearing people because they sound low, even with the volume at it's highest

    I have bought lots of earbuds from $15 to $80 and these are some if the best sounding. They have very high end frequency response, good low bass. They lack a little in the mid and upper high end where the more expensive Xpanxed Bass models fill in better but as for sub bass they perform he same. These are appearently the successor to the MDREX110 and sound almost identical and those were my favorite. These are my new favorite. I got them on sale for $20, but even at MSRP they have great sound quality. The cord easily tangles and is a bit thin but I have never had a problem with 110’s cord lasting and this one is the same. The driver sensitivity is slightly low so you’ll have to turn the volume up a little more than some other better quality buds but definitely not a problem. I highly recommend these. I have not reviewed them for phone call mic quality.

    I bought these to replace my old Coby 50mms that finally died, and was so impressed that I bought a second pair! I wanted full sound without the bulk while traveling, and these babies deliver! The 9mm drivers are incredibly responsive! Highs are crystal clear and the bass is deep and punchy! They don't require high volume to enjoy powerful music either! Another perk is the microphone! I didn't plan on using them with my phone because my truck is LOUD. But the mic delivers speech flawlessly without background noise, and the ear cups cancel out road noise and engine roar. They're very comfortable too! I'm extremely happy with these little Sonys, and I look forward to years of enjoyment!

    I bought these earbuds a couple of weeks before I flew from IAH to DCA. They're marketed as "noise-canceling." They're sort of like an inverted suction cup--they create an almost perfect seal, so I hear almost no outside noise. During the flights to and from DCA, I put my earbuds in before the plane left the ground. During the flight, I experienced minimal to no ear-popping, and minimal to no discomfort in my right ear (which is normally where I have the most pain/discomfort when the plane lands). The flights to/from DCA were the most uneventful, pain-free flights I've ever experienced, and I think it's because the earbuds sealed my ears. Highly recommended for plane travel!

    Having lost the silicone earpiece off my previous earbuds, I went looking for a replacement, only to discover that, once again, the model was discontinued. I didn't really need the inline mic, but this set touted a slightly better frequency range than my old ones. The reality, though, is that I have to shove them in pretty snugly to get the bass effect, and they're not as effective at blocking out ambient noise as the last set I had, despite being the same brand and almost identical earpieces. It just doesn't sound as crisp as that old pair, which BTW, was about $10 less because it didn't have the microphone component. I really like Sony's earbuds overall, but I've had better performance from other models they've produced before.

    This is my first ever sony earphones, and I promise you, it did not disappoint. I was hesitant to buy it at first cause I don’t know if it’s gonna be good or not, but I’m really glad I took the risk. Color is beautiful, love the non tangle item that they have. Clean bass, love the sound quality. It also fits my ear perfectly, well i mean it’s the usual in-ear headphones but the suction on these earphones are perfect for me, not too annoying and not too eeky feeling. Sad though, I lost them. I left it in my office and was gone the next day. I was really sad, the first time I ever lost an earphone. :( Planning to buy another one but leaning towards a bluetooth one. Anyways, take the risk, you’ll love it.

    I purchased these several weeks ago in order to replace a similar pair I used to own. This pair, however, is much nicer in the way it fits in the ear. I could wear these comfortably for hours on end without any ear fatigue. Word to the wise, if this is your first pair of in-ear buds, and you've always been adamant on using Sony's earbuds in the past you want to make sure to use the medium cups first if you like to use your earbuds without the foam padding those used to bring. Otherwise, if you're like me who needs to use the padding JUST to make sure the earbuds don't fall off, you will want to switch out to the larger in ear cups to have best experience.

    Great for phone calls! These earbuds do have some good qualities: voices are clear at both ends of the conversation, the microphone location reduces background noise, the cord is just the right length, and the volume used to be just right. But, these earbuds are NOT durable! One of the earpieces broke off my 1st pair, the sound no longer works on one side of my 2nd pair, and the volume has become indiscernable on my 3rd pair. I'm still looking for a different brand of earbuds with all of the good qualities and none of the bad ones these offer.

    I like other people have gone through earbuds like sugar at a baker's fight but I think these earbuds are one of my longest running pair that still work. Going on 2 months, though I don't exercise with them, I do travel alot for work and fun. Airplanes, buses, trains...I always have them with me and use them with my laptop, ipad, or airplane jack. They sound great anywhere I go. Though their longevity might be due to the fact that I have been storing them in their original capsule-like packaging...I would suggest the same, they won't get tangled and they won't get crushed in your backpack.

    bought these headphones for my mom as she needed a pair, she is constantly breaking them (dont ask me how) or constantly buying new ones that are so cheap, of course they break. point is shes really bad with them. I bought a geek squad replacement protection plan so should they break within 2 years she can go down to store and get a replacement pair. the sound quality is decent, they work great on her samsung s8 and also have a mic for calling.

    I always purchase sony headphones with all my devices. When I'm not using my studio headphones, I use these. They fit comfortably and have excellent sound when used with any device. One way to test how good it works, use it on your tablet and mobile device, then plug it into your laptop and you can hear the difference. *your PC doesn't have the EQ like mobile devices. This is way better than the headphones my mobile device came with.. light weight, great sound, what are you waiting for?

    Why are they best i feel ....partcularily for the money......these are the first call ready headset earbuds where folks on the other line have commented on how good the sound quality is....for someone like me that does business on the phone...that is vital.....the sound quality on the music is quite balanced and the isolation and microsonics from the wire as it bumps clothes or your bag is lower than other models...so i highly recommend these at 20 dollars is the right balance between high value and great price...enjoy :)

    Even though these In-ear headphones are sold to use with a phone, I chose them to work with my ipod (Yes, someone still uses an ipod). They are the third pair I bought to replace an old pair that were really small with great sound, and they sound very good, fit my ears well and meet my needs for being small. While the sound is not as good as my Bose over the ear headphones, they are much better than the other small ear buds that I tried and even play classical music well.

    They have decent sound, comfortable for small ears, I only use these for watching movies or videos on my tablet or phone when my wireless ones are charging, they’re surprisingly clear for phone or video calls. What I don’t like is that it doesn’t have a volume control, that has to be controlled on the device itself (tablet, phone etc) But for the price which is less than 10 dollars they’re ok for an emergency.

    I got these as a backup to my Bose QC15s. No, I'm not a musical snob, but I do like the QC15s as daily drivers to block office and aircraft noise. These Sony's aren't that, but after I added some aftermarket foam buds they actually sounded better, with decent lows and reasonably saturated mids and highs. The cord is thin, though, and durability is still up in the air. You get what you pay for, and at $20 my expectation were set low. Not disappointed.

    The headphones are pretty stylish and very durable. My son uses them for school and has destroyed others within a few weeks. They are lower profile and fits nicely in a travel case that's made for eye glasses which helps them while being in his school bag all day when he isn't using them in class. He picked them out himself from all the other similar headphones because he thought that they were the most attractive as well.

    Because I use my phone on 'speaker' for lengthy phone calls, I was trying to figure out a way to eliminate having to hold the phone for such a long time, and voila! With the purchase of the Sony Wired EX Series in-ear headphones, I can use the earbuds and I was told by people I talk with that the sound is even much better & clearer! A "win-win."

    I like the Sony headphones. The have great sound and the volume is impeccable. They come with a cord winder to keep the cord wound up in case it;s too long for your needs. The button works well to play and pause on Android and there is a companion app to allow you to add more functions to the headphones. The app is kind of clunky and not easy to use and the fact that there is no volume control button at this price point is why these get 4 stars instead of 5.
