good Phones, but defective,
This review is from: Sony MDRZX300/RED Outdoor Headphones (Electronics)
So i got these headphones out of the box and plugged them into both my phone and my computer.
The sound was banging, great frequency distribution (the sound range is awesome) and they are really loud. They look awesome, and definitely feel sturdy enough for long term use. Adjustability and comfort was also really good, they can fit any size head.
Unfortunately for me, there was way more bass coming out of the right side than the left. I'm pretty sure I just got a bad pair. so, I sent them in to Sony all the way to Laredo, TX. I hope they get there and get replaced. I'm out 5 bucks for the shipping. Kinda seems pointless to do for only a 25 dollar pair of headphones. Hopefully others aren't experiencing this.
** Update 1/29/13
I sent them into Sony and got another pair in exchange. This pair is not defective and I can confidently say now that I'm happy with these headphones. Great buy for 25 bucks.

Thanks a bunch. I'm ordering right away. Have to listen to stupid conversations at work. Need to drown them out.

Wondering if you used these in a nook tablet?

I just bought a pair of the ZX100's and am very happy with them. The ZX300's use a more expensive neodymium magnet in the driver, hence the slightly higher price. I am glad to hear that the sound is noticeably better. Guess I will try a pair and hear for myself. I bought the ZX100's because Sony "MDR" series headphones have always delivered good sound and good value for the price, and these ZX phones swivel flat, so I can stow them in my laptop bag.

Now that you have a good pari of headphones and they work great for you, you should change the number of stars you gave these headphones.
