I bought these headphones to use for meditation purposes only. I don't use them for communication on the phone. The quality is very poor and people could hardly hear you. I would recommend these earphones for listening purposes only. Anything other than that....cheap...cheap...cheap.
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.
These are really good earphones. I listen to music and TV on my phone, the sounds are so clear and crisp. I also use them as a backup to my Bluetooth to talk on the phone. I love them!
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Smh...RATING OF NEGATIVE 5
I spent more time detangling the extremely thin cord (spaghetti thin), than actually using the ear plugs; chucked them away...what a waste of my money. I usually read reviews before making purchases, however, I was in a hurry (MY FAULT) and allowed myself to run w/ a brand such as SONY, with a good reputation in electronics. THAT will never happen again.
These are a highly comfortable, and easy to use earbuds that stay in your ears even while moving around. I unload heavy boxes for my job, and have to move them quickly, and I have never had a problem with these buds falling out or becoming a nuisance. The fact that the first pair only lasted 20 days before they would not be read by my device, and the second pair is already showing signs of damage is disappointing. So, they don't seem to be reliable, although it could be simply because I have overused them. But as these are the best earbuds I have owned, I would continue to purchase them.
I know others use them for answering their cell phones.But I bought these for basic use.I listen to "do it yourself",news,and music videos on you tube. Usually late at night as to not to disturb other family members.Luckily i do not need a mic,or answer button.But it does lack a volume button which i find is always a step up.Bought for the cheap price and name.Is better than what you find at most dollar stores.I would not recommend for jogging,exercise,cellphone or any active use where your constantly moving the wiring. Wiring is good for standard use but will wear and break over time.Sound quality for my use is good as the source i'm listening to.Bonus: ear tips included.I bought these before years ago ,forgot,and bought them again because of price and name .Over all good for the basics.
A:AnswerHonestly you really want headphones with a larger driver for clarity when looking at how the bass drum will sound. Over the ear headphones are always going to give you a better sound when it comes to stuff like kick drums. That being said, these are great for the price. Bass is warm and natural.
