Many people also miss the fact that when you double- or triple-click for track forward/reverse you can HOLD the final click for SCRUBBING forward or backward at high speed. Of course, the controller has less functionality on non-Apple players and older iPods, since they are designed for newer iPod/iPhone.
Hands-down the best upgrade/investment I have made to go with my iPhone. Buy. These. Now!
*** Note that, as in ALL earbuds, the wires are fragile. You do have to TAKE CARE OF THEM. Wrapping cords around your player and stuffing into your pocket WILL cause a short eventually. Use the included cord winder and/or included draw-string cloth baggie. I still have a pair of an earlier model Sony buds Sony MDREX36V/BLK EX Earbud Headphone (Black) that are working just fine because I do not abuse the wire.
Been using for 5 months now and they are the best I have ever owned. Microphone is clear, too.
I've read a lot of negative comments about these in-ear headphones.Read more ›
That said, I figured it was worth going with a Sony headset again. The fact that this is one of the few reasonably-priced sets I've been able to find which offers both iPod/iPhone functionality + volume controls, plus Sony's reputation, sealed the deal. (Please note, I'm not a Sony "fanboy" or anything; just noting that they're an established company, so there is some consumer comfort level there.)
I won't really speak to the fit of the earbuds, because obviously it will be different for everybody; except to say that the medium earbuds fit fine for me out of the box, and I suppose that I have relatively normal-sized ears. I've used other in-the-ear buds which felt better, but these were acceptable to me.
The headphones measure 48" from earbuds to headphone jack. The mic/volume control sits 6" below the LEFT earpiece (the first review which criticized the effect of sweat seems to indicate that it's on the right side...) The Y-split is another 10" below that (so 16" down the right wire), and has a sliding plastic piece which allows you to "choke up" the slack, if desired.
I've only had these for 1 day, but I do feel that the treble is rather harsh. Especially noticeable listening to metal (and similar music). I test-listened to other genres as well - just pointing out metal because the highs were noticeably shrill. As per another reviewer's advice (somewhere else on the Web), I set my iPhone's EQ to "Treble Reducer", and that seemed to help. Perhaps they need to "break in" a little bit, I don't know.Read more ›
***TIP #1: Currently I use a iPhone 3GS and I compensate for the low bass by setting the EQ setting to Electronic or Classical.***
Also, for the many designs that I've tried over the years, the ear bud tends to be my favorite (although I plan on purchasing Bose over the ear headphones sometime within the next year). The two problems with ear buds in general are that, #1-the rubber buds pop out a lot on accident, and #2-they fall out of the ear. I'll go on record by saying that these ear buds have hardly ever popped out at all!
***TIP #2: If you switch the ear buds by putting the right bud in the left ear and the left bud in the right ear, they are MUCH MUCH MORE STURDY and stay in place really well.*** No more having to fidget by readjusting the ear buds every couple of minutes.
And finally, the little handy remote. I love being able to control the music, switch tracks, pause tracks, and control the volume without having to take it out every single time.Read more ›
