Customer Reviews

They too often fall off the ear and when they do stay on are easily rattled around.
Jack Hammer
All in all, if you're looking for a good pair of headphones for the gym, its definitely worth trying these out.
J. Kaplan
The quality of sound and durability of these headphones are very good as most Sony products.

(3/18/06) I read lots of reviews in which people say their earphones fall off and are not worth anything. I guess it all comes down to the shape/size of people's ears. These fit my ears like a glove. I don't even realize I am wearing them. I'm currently traing to run a marathon; I run a lot. So far, the farthest I've ran with them was twelve miles and I had not problems at all. I only paid $10.00 for them; if they break, that's fine; the usage I've gotten out of them so far has been worth every penny (and I'm confident I will get many more miles out of them before I need to get new ones.)

ADDENDUM (8/18/06): Well now I have trained and run two marathons and the earphones are still holding up. I am currently training for a third marathon (which is in two months) and these earphones have not given me any problems. I am confident these earphones will be operating just fine in two months while I run the third marathon. If/when they break, I will definitely gotten my $10-worth out of them.

ADDENDUM (10/15/06): I just ran the third marathon and these earphones are still good. I wouldn't be surprised if these hold up for a couple more marathons.

ADDENDUM (04/21/07): Well now I have trained for and have run four (4) marathons using these earphones (that's too much mileage to even try to count). They have not failed me yet. Granted, ever since I've had these headphones, I ALWAYS wipe them clean with a damp cloth to remove the residual salt from my sweat. IMHO, that's the reason they have lasted so long.

ADDENDUM (04/09/08): I've been running and training for yet another marathon which is just a couple weeks from now.

I honestly don't understand some of the negative reviews for this product. They certainly don't just fall off if worn while running, let alone while walking. Because they are very light and supported by over-the-ear clips, the earbud tends to "float" in your ear and may not feel snug to some people. The speaker face of the earbud actually points forward, and not directly into the ear. They are not designed to be a snug fit in the ear canal, like the "closed type" designs of Shure Sound Isolating or Sony Fontopia headphones. Because of this, you are able to hear outside noises while running (which is a good thing), and also don't get the stethoscope effect when the wire rubs up against your shirt/body.

Sound quality is pretty good. Far from perfect, but certainly not bad. Great range and clarity for this price and purpose. Obviously there are headphones on the market that offer higher sound quality (see Shure), but for listening to mp3's, podcasts, or audiobooks while running or working out, these headphones sound just fine.

Sound volume is good as well. I use mine with an iPod mini. At the lowest volume level right before it cuts out the sound completely, it's still fairly audible. When running I usually set the volume on my iPod to about one-third the max. One-half the max is about as loud as I can get before outside noises are washed out. Anything louder would probably cause long-term hearing damage.

I have not experienced the crackles or distortions mentioned by other reviewers. Keep in mind that it may not be the headphones causing this. The quality of the digital audio player plays a big part in the overall sound quality. I have also not experienced any shortouts due to sweat or loss of sound in either earbud.

The sound is decent. But the phones are terrible for sports, especially for running. They won't stay in. They are constantly falling off, pulling away so that you only hear through one ear, and the clip only worsens the problem. So I'm still on the hunt for headphones that won't fall off during a workout. These aren't them.

I think it is genetics that causes some people not to be able to find a headset that fits well.... After trying 10 different headsets, I finally found this one... It fits great, sounds great, and is water resistant so when I sweat I don't break them. I loved them so much I recommended them to my mom, and she too finds them to be a great fit and sound quality... She is an extreme exerciser as well... Definitely worth the money....

I dug these up today after becoming worried about taking my new ER-6i buds out with me, especially to work out. After becoming very spoiled by those wonderful phones (highly recommended!), I really expected to hate these little guys, but that wasn't the case. Now, I won't evaluate them comparatively with the aforementioned Etymotics (a ridiculous proposition), so please don't get that impression. That said, I wasn't displeased with the sound of these Sonys considering their price and intended use.

High frequencies feel rolled off or muted, kinda like turning the tone control down on an electric guitar or 2-eq-knob stereo system, but that's better than the screechy highs that some low priced 'phones deliver. Midrange seems to be tuned to emphasize vocal ranges, which may or may not be pleasing to your tastes. The bass lacks any real semblance of detail, but at least it's there in sufficient quantity without being distractingly boomy. Better still, many basslines are at least partly distinguishable in terms of the individual notes (you'd be hard pressed to identify pitches or anything like that, but you can at least tell a difference between them: better than the "1-note-bass" response of a few cheapies I've heard).

A word of warning: when I first put these on, they sounded awful, just disgusting (no bass, ultra-tinny highs/few mids), but I found this to be caused by the headphones falling too far out of the ear; to get decent sound, these must be fitted as snugly as possible (comfortably) into the ear. This is not easy for everyone, as some other reviews here attest, so your mileage may vary; my experience with these has been surprisingly positive given their budget class.
