The 36V's come with small, medium, and large size tips of the famous Sony hybrids, a comfortable alternative to harder ear tips. It's easy to get the tips on and off, which is a good thing, since it's necessary to try out all of them; until you find the best fit for your ears, sound quality and/or isolation will suffer. Included also is a small draw-string pouch that's just big enough to put the earphones in, a welcome addition at this price point.
With the in-line volume control, you can adjust the volume on the cord without changing settings on your computer or media player. And because earphones like these are relatively close to your ear drums, unlike open-air headphones or speakers, it's necessary to get into a habit of LOWERING THE VOLUME, for your own hearing safety. I feel the need to emphasize this: passive isolation is theoretically safer than using ear buds or open-air headphones because you don't need to drown out outside noise, but only if you keep volume levels reasonable. Cable noise can be a problem unless you wear them over the ear. The left ear bud has a small dot, which makes it possible to distinguish left from right in the dark.
After a month and a half of listening to these earphones, I finally found a short, sweet way to sum up their strengths: they sound good with pop, rap, and folk and not so good with everything else.Read more ›
I have been able to hear my music for how it was supposed to be heard for the first time in a long time. These are definitely the best headphones for the price, and if, like me, switching from an iPod headphone, you will definitely notice exceptionally clear quality. As it says on its box, the headphones offer "clear and rich sound with deep bass".
Usually I am used to turning up the volume and losing mass amounts of quality, but even when I max out the volume the sound is very clear through these headphones.
The headphones are very comfortable. I have worn them for hours in a row before and my ears don't feel uncomfortable as they have with other headphones.
I have seen headphones priced around $60-70 that do not offer the range of these headphones (6-23000 Hz). Definitely well worth the money.
To give you an idea how good these are, I once tried a pair of older/cheaper Sony earbuds some years ago, and the sound was so terrible I sent them back and swore off earbuds forever. I've been using the Sony MDR-J20 h.ear Stereo Headphones (White) behind-the-ear headphones since then, and have been greatly spoiled for any other sub-$100 earphones by the bass and fidelity of their great neodymium drivers. They can be obtrusive and frustrating to wear however, so against my better judgment I decided to give these a try today. I was nervous about wasting my time and money, but my fears were proven to be for naught the second I started playing the first song. They trounced my old J20s in bass, treble, comfort and overall design. A truly great product at a great price. Easy 5 stars.
I was inspired to review them after I rolled over them with my office chair yet another time(just a few minutes ago). They have also survived many instances of being ripped out of my ears when I stand up, being closed in car doors, being stepped on, and being stretched to the breaking point when I lean back and the cord is caught on something. These things are tough. I have had them for over a year and they look like new.
Oh, yes. They sound great too!
In between, I've dabbled with many brands and types, when I usually have a senior moment and forget one or the other Sennheisers. I recently tried these Sony's and frankly, I totally amazed at how good they are. Their sound is rich and dynamic. Their is ample bass, and even decent midrange. The high end is not as painful as many earbuds tend to be either. I also like their construction, especially the wire coating that helps in them not getting tangled (the overpriced Sennheisers, while they sound awesome, are always somehow getting tied into a knot, with their sticky, slimy wires)
These Sony's aren't the best noise cancelers (many earbuds are pretty good at that, simply because they seal your ear canal), but that's not their intent. Nonetheless, for the decent price they are offered at, I'm very impressed.
