      Like my title says, they do sound pretty decent. They are very light weight and pretty comfortable, I have even fell asleep while watching a YouTube video before bed on my Samsung Galaxy note 5 using these earphones and i noticed no discomfort at all. When it comes to sound they sound very bright and what I mean by that is that the higher frequencies overkill the low frequencies by about 50% the bass response which is the lower end frequencies can be heard ok but it's not as loud as I would like it to be, when it comes to Bass on a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a 7 as it is much to be desired, you can hear it but not as loud as the higher frequencies. Now when it comes to the cord on the earphones, it is honestly very flimsy and feels like if I accidentally yank it a little too hard, the cable can tare off from the earphone making them useless. When it comes to phone calls, some people.can hear me pretty clear and some hear my voice muffled. I can answer and end calls with it but the volume control doesn't work but it's not a big deal for me. I can compare these easily to the earphones you get with most Android smartphones like my samsung note 2 and 3. My note 5 didnt come with any so I also had a pair of klipsch XR8i Hybrid earphones which I really liked due to their awesome bass response and clarity but unfortunately I cannot recommend them because they are extremely expensive and though they sound good, they were replaced 3 times by the 1 year warranty because 1 tweeter driver on the left side and 1 woofer driver on the right side kept breaking inside the earphones which was weird. Once the 1 year warranty was over, the last replacement pair broke in 2 months of use for the same exact reason and I only used them at night watching Netflix, YouTube and some Anime off of Funimation and Crunchyroll at low to medium volume, so that is why I bought these cheaper Sony earphones to replace the expensive ones. Now for the price of these Sony earphones under twenty dollars, they do the job well and serve my purpose of bedtime YouTube video watching till I fall asleep. Would I recommend them? Yes because they get the job done and they are very affordable and very comfortable too so if these break, I can simply order another pair with no problem of breaking the bank vs the klipsch earphones that costed me almost $300.00 dollars. They sounded excellent while they worked but not worth it. BestBuy is no longer selling the XR8i's either because of faulty parts in the driver's. Anyways do not expect these to have a good amount of bass because they don't really have it however they do sound decent and get the job done. In the picture below you will see my new cheap Sony earphones in the right vs my Expensive paper weight edition klipsch earphones on the left.

      Great Sound Quality, Poor Craftsmanship

      This is my first ever product review, spurred on by the unfortunate experience I have with this product. I purchased these headphones looking for a set I could use at work and traveling. I received my headphones on February 28, 2018. Within 3 weeks, the right speaker had lost approximately 90% of its volume and the wiring was getting loose coming into the play/pause button area. This required me to fiddle with the wiring that connected to the button in order to get the sound at full standard volume in the left speaker. A week later, the left headphone has lost about half its standard volume permanently. I do not listen to loud music (usually orchestral), and I need to hear my phone and such over the music at work, thus keeping the volume lower. In the end, this product was fantastic for 2 weeks. I used them quite often, and I fully expected and accepted they would tangle easily, which they did. However, the speakers randomly losing volume is frustrating, especially within the first month of ownership. I would suggest shelling out an extra $15-$25 and obtaining a set of well-built headphones or earbuds.

      I LOVE Sony. Always have. My first console was a PlayStation (original) and ever since then I have always sought out Sony products over anything else. Now, I did NOT have high expectations for these headphones, in fact I was expecting them to be a bit worse in sound quality then they actually were, that's not the reason for my 2 star review. These headphones got used a handful of times, never during any rigorous activity or in hazardous situations such as swimming or anything else that would obviously ruin the headphones, I even kept the volume moderately low because I have a bad habit of blowing out tiny earbuds like this fairly quickly. Despite all this, one fateful morning I reached for these headphones and to my dismay, they were DEAD. I've never had an issue like this before where the headphones just didn't work... So to sum it up, these deserve 2 stars for the price and for the sound quality (again, not amazing but not at all horrible) and they lose 3 stars for just giving up on me when I needed them..

      Not as good as the EX15...what happened?

      I bought these to replace my Sony EX15AP that were on its last legs. I figured these would be nearly the same since it looks exactly the same. Turns out these were horrible...They only come with a silver (nickel) plug compared to the EX15's gold plated plug, the build quality seemed worse, the sound quality was obviously worse than by other Sonys, and the mic didn't even work. The sound alone made me instantly dislike them. They sounded harsh, with a weird boost in the high-mids as well as a completely thin sound. Vocals came off as sibilant and thin, there was absolutely no warmth or depth to the lower mids, the treble was decent, and the bass was fairly neutral compared to other consumer earbuds, but still slightly boosted. I did some A/B comparisons with the EX15, and it was obvious how much better the 15s were. On top of this, the mic didn't even work properly. The play/pause didn't work, nor did the microphone. It decided to randomly skip, fast forward, and pause songs whenever it felt like it. Stick with the EX15, they're better in every way and also cheaper than the EX14

      Best earbuds ever

      I have been using these headphones for many years, they are way better than any other brand I have had. The response rate is great, the cable is long enough to route through a shirt or where ever you need it to go, the phone Mic works great. Best part is that these buds don't cost too much, for 15 bucks you don't expect to see quality like this. I will continue to buy these great headphones whenever I need a pair, nothing else compares in this price range and I lose buds twice a year and break them doing stopped things like stepping on them or getting them stuck in weird places (a risk you run when using the long headphones). I have been happy with this model for many years and you will be too.

      Very surprised

      I am very surprised by the great value these offer. Sound quality is easily great, with just the right amount of bass which makes the music sound natural. I have chosen them because I knew they have right-angled jack and a tiny one at that which is convenient when used with laptop in bed as you are less likely to bend / damage it. I was not expecting them sounding this well too. And the comfort is exemplary. To achieve and really enjoy the best comfort and especially sound quality of these, remember that there is a certain right way to insert these type of in-ear phones and it really makes huge difference. You have to use you opposite hand overhead and pull your ear lobe up so you create bigger opening into you ear canal and then insert the earphone in. Only this way you will achieve best sound isolation, quality and best comfort.

      Worst earphones

      Posted
      Angie

      Maybe I got a defective product, I don’t know, but these earphones are the worst I’ve ever used. I chose the Sony brand over others because I trusted their quality, but this time it’s very disappointing. First of all, the earphones keeps activating Siri on my iPhone for no reason- this happens 10 times as I am typing this review. Sometimes it activates Siri when I am not even touching my phone, sometimes it happens when I lightly touch the earphones wires or when I move my phone slightly. It is very annoying. I can’t listen to a whole song without being interrupted a few times. The sound quality is very bad. The cheap free earphones I received on my flight is better than this. I wish I didn’t throw away the packaging so I can return this thing. It’s a waste of money. Total garbage.

      Basic Earbuds with Great Comfort

      I purchased these earbuds to use at the gym. The first thing I noticed when I put them in my ears is how comfortable they are. The rubber ear pieces are extremely soft and fit snugly in your ears, with little chance they will fall out while running or doing other activities. The sound is decent with slightly over the top bass, which is pretty standard for Sony. While the sound doesn't touch my Sennhesier earbuds, for $10 I can't really complain. The cord is quite thin which is nice because you can barely notice them flapping around, but I've got to question the durability. We'll see how that goes. Overall, these Sony earbuds have exceeded my expectations.
