I bought these a year and a half ago and use them constantly. Being a college student, I'm on the computer often, and always use these. The quality of these headphones is outstanding for the price. Comfort is great; the extra long cord is a definite bonus; sound is great too. Sometimes when listening to a movie in these headphones, I'll be tricked and think a sound is external, because the sound placement and accuracy is that good

I have no complaints, and if you're using a cheap pair of headphones right now, I'd definitely recommend upgrading. Obviously they're not for active/mobile use, but these are great for listening to music and not bothering the roommates.

Bass is great; like I said, no complaints

Well, you're obviously not going to get a professional quality set of headphones for under $20, but these are certainly decent headphones. They were meant to replace an old pair of Sony's that the headband broke on finally after about 5 years. I just got the XD100's today, and I am more than impressed! I am listening to some bass tests right now (Techmaster P.E.B.), and you can hear pretty low notes on them! The bass is incredible for a sub-$20 pair of headphones!

I primarily will be using these for casual music listening, and for gaming on my gaming system and at LAN parties. They fit my head really well, too, and are easy adjustable. The only question I have on the headband is how long it's going to last. The adjustable parts are all made of seemingly cheap plastic, and I wouldn't be surprised if it snaps from not all that much abuse. Of course, I try to treat my stuff with care, but for someone who knows that they're going to throw them around a lot might want to look at a different pair.

Pros:

** Good sound quality

** Comfortable fit (even after a couple hours)

** Not too heavy

** Long cord (could be good or bad)

** Includes 1/8" --> 1/4" adapter

Cons:

** [Seemingly] Cheap plastic

** Headband is not solid (but I personally like that) or padded

Pros:

These headphones are easy to wear and similar in design to the MDR-XD300. They are very comfortable and lightweight (relatively). They are nice and loud so you don't have to crank up your volume. I have noticed details in songs that I suspected were better than my speakers could reproduce.

Cons:

These headphones are a bit cheap on the low end. Sure the specs say they are great, but the tuning is such that even though you can tell there is bass there, it just does not hit very hard. The only I get any "boom" out of these is when I play specific low frequency music (techno/electronica/etc...).

While I don't like particularly boomy headphones these suffer from what seems to be an imbalance in excellent mid-high reproduction (even a little peaky at times) with mediocre to dissapointing low end intenity.

I'm going to keep this short and simple for us over 30's crowd.

I remember when you used to buy full ear headphones and no matter cheap or not they blocked out ambient noise at least. These things suck!

Simple and not so sweet. Trust me they have no volume. I tried them on my PC for movies = not that bad, PC for MP3's = sucked no bass, on my Ipod = sucked again no bass or volume

They're under $20 I know but come on Sony.

My gut was to go with some Sensheisers but I went with Sony because I love my Sony earbuds but I was wrong. These are being returned as I type this.

Shop around and don't be fooled by the brand name or the other reviews on here.

I know that a lot of people are like me and they buy things like sound equipment without knowing any of the details or specifics, so I thought I'd offer that perspective on these headphones.

They're decently comfortable to wear except they'd be perfect if there was some kind of cushion under the band that goes across the top of your head. Whenever I'd wear them I'd have to move them every half hour or so because the bands were digging into my scalp.

Also, I wear eyeglasses to watch movies so the fit was a little tight where the stems sat above my ears; it always required a bit of adjustment. The cushions sit on the ears very well, though. They cancel out quite a lot of noise without actually cutting off all sound, like if the phone rings.

I think the sound quality is really excellent, though like I said, I don't know any of the technical details of sound quality. All I know is that I would often take them on and off just to make sure that I had the speakers turned to 'headphones' because the sound was so clear that I could swear I'd forgotten and it was filling the whole room (I usually watch movies at night so I don't want to wake anyone up!).

The cord is very durable and long, though it's the reason why I had to replace them with another Sony pair today. The wire going into the left speaker just all of a sudden stopped working, right in the middle of an episode of Glee. :(

But they did last quite a long time, I think. I actually don't remember when I bought them! It has to have been at least a year and half, and for this price I'd call them a great buy for someone like me who doesn't want any fuss or muss and just wants to watch the movie now! :)
