Buy these for someone you really don't like!

It fits inside the ear so it can be a little uncomfortable if does not fit properly.

I got these headphones and also the MDR-EX51LP, I liked these better than the MDR-EX51LP because the sounds it produced was crisper and overall just much better. My only problem with these is that the chord is a little short, just a little over 3ft.

I didn't choose the MDR-EX51LP because that the bass was way too loud. I know that people like bass, but whenever you listen to songs with lyrics all you can hear is the bass, and the spoken stuff gets drowned a bit.

I like the MDR-ED21LP because it was just right, and it was actually louder. I use them on my IAudio CW200 and I usually set my volume to 25. When I have it in that volume level MDR-EX51LP is just too low to even hear it. Even though it goes into your ear canal it doesn't perform as loud as the the MDR-ED21LP. You can also hear some ruffling noise whenever the chord rubs in your clothes, like the stetoscope effect, as another user reviewed.

For the MDR-ED21LP, everything is great, crisp, loud sound, great bass. My only complaint is the chord length.

First of all, there's one very important thing to be said: I'm using an iPod Mini. I'm really amazed with the sound that this small electronic device can supply.. The sound is so great that I even believed at first that the Apple headphones were great. Of course, after some time I started to notice the lack of sound quality, isolation and bass.

After searching the web for earbuds, I've noticed that there are 2 very different types:

- flat earbuds (just like the Apple's)

- canal phones (very expensive Koss, Etymotic or Shure phones, that you really "stick" in your ear)

Of course there are great quality flat phones, but the bass power is always very week, even on the top ones, as I could see with the Bang & Olufsen Earbuds.

On the other hand, the Canal Phones require some time for you to get used to it. The isolation and bass power are really incredible, but they are very agressive to your ears.

Well, the Sony MDR-ED21LP are the ONLY earbuds that I found, that are really in the middle of these 2 types..

They are not flat at all, which really enhances the bass, but they are really NOT agressive to your ears.

Besides, the sound quality is fantastic (remember that I'm using the Powerful iPod Mini), and you can use them for many hours in a row without even feeling them.

And priced like this, I totally recommend these earbuds.

I've tried all sorts of earphones, and these are the best for under $100 (best I've tried that costs more are the Etymotics). They're cheap, the bass response is wonderful thanks to the extra over the bud 'horn'. You will get much better sound than you will with the flat buds (even the $50 ones) without actually sticking something right in your ear canal.

I use my trusty pair of these with my iPod Nano. For only $10-15 they sound so much better than the headphones that came with the Nano that I feel kind of cheated.

I still think a good pair of headphones (Sony MDR-CD790) are more comfortable for long periods of time, but they're not nearly as portable. Also, the cord on these is sometimes a bit too short (but most of the time it's nice not to have the extra stuff laying around).

These earbuds have a great sound, but hurt my ear big time. The part that goes into your ear is hard plastic, and unless you were the model for the mold on these things... they're not going to fit your particular ear shape. There's only one size/shape, so your chances of a good, comfortable fit are slim. I ended up returning them and buying earbuds that have a soft rubber end that comes in 3 sizes.

I bought to try the following earphones: Koss KSC9, which are earphones with clips over the ears, Koss KSC22 which are with clips over the ears as well. I wanted the clip so that the earphones would not fall out from my ear so easely, And these two models do not fall from the ear no matter what you do. But the sound quality is depending at the way you will insert them to your ears. But Sony MDR ED21LP was a surprise to me: not only they fit so well in my ears, they will hold them selves very nicely within the ears (maybe after some time you will need to push/fit them in a little, but even without doing so, they will not fall out) and they sound much better because they are acting like internal earbuds, without being forced and sealed inside the ear canal, which is very un healthy for the ears. this Sony model does the trick very well, they fit very nice, quickly and locating them selves in the optimal way in the ear cavity, and they have this special rubber part that is gently inserted into the ear canal, but without the pressure of the tight sealing, so you get a surprising louder bass then any of the earphones models that do not have this aditional "sound tube". I am a musician and I can tell very well if the sound is even slightly better. I am going to get me another set of these so well sounding earphones. The sound is balanced all across. I like to hear a good bass sound and this Sony model gives me the best joy of listening so far with these sizes of earphones. (My Mother tang in not English, so please forgive me if there are any mistakes).
