5.0 out of 5 stars Best 'bang for your buck' here. Great sound!, October 23, 2012
This review is from: Sony MDREX10LP/BLK In-Ear Headphones (Electronics)
I've been a long time Sony headphone customer for many years. It seems that one of the best kept secrets of the industry is the fact the Sony makes great sounding headphones and they don't charge a lot for it. These ear buds are cheap (I define cheap as under 20 bucks). I think they get overlooked as many people would look at them and think they have perhaps the same sub par sound as the included ear phones in many of today's electronics based on the price. They are are wrong.

The advantage of in ear buds is that they are the original "noise cancelling" ear phones. Why? Because they plug your ear like ear plugs! This gives them a distinct advantage as most of the noise you hear is from the headphones.

What makes these buds good?

The tonal quality is good. Highs, mids, and lows are distinct and separate. The range is nice. The bass is strong. Sure you could get other buds that have stronger bass (even Sony has some that have stronger bass), but I felt this was enough to be quite present but not overpowering. I have a discerning ear. That being said I like my "lows" more then I like my "highs". I was not disappointed.

The only con I can see is the quality of the wire might not be as good as others. Seems kind of thin even compared to my previous Sony ear buds. Overall it shouldn't be a problem as I don't really plan to wrap them tight or anything.

Could you buy better ear buds? Sure. Bose, Sony, Klipsch and others offer them at premium prices. Could you buy better ear buds under 20 dollars? No way.
