First off, my use case is for my cellphone only. I use these with my Google Pixel XL like all earbuds I buy. Which means no EQ tweaking, not much power driving them, just cell phone spec usage.
Secondly, I am blown away at how well these sounds. Its crazy to have it hit so low in terms of bass, it doesn't shake your head, but it lightly vibrates your ear and you get this weird feeling because normally bass that low, you feel it more than you hear it. With these, because it does vibrate your ear a little, you can hear it, and your brain goes "shouldn't I feel this?". Which isn't a bad thing, its nice to hear details you normally don't with cheaper headphones, or headphones with specs that simply don't hit that low. The highs are crisp, the mids are clear and "flat" like they should be. I am very impressed with the sound quality of these earbuds. While I am promoting the bass, even though they are "extra bass", its not extra base in the sense of "muddy" its more like "extra base vs other earbuds" which means quality sound. Trust me, the bass is NOT overpowered.
Thirdly the fitment. Most earbuds out of package don't feel right, they don't seal in my weird ass ears and I end up playing with the various tip sizes to get a proper fit. However with the way these seal, the basic size right out the gate fit no issue, it more so rests on your ear instead of going INTO your ear. (best way for me to explain it). Think of other earbuds as a giant rock that only seals a cave entrance once its been inserted inside the cave by a few feet. Where as the sony's are like a giant boulder that seals along the outside of the cave entrance like a cover stone. I actually prefer this as they seal well which helps with the bass response.
Finally, the comparison. I have reviewed sennheisers (which I am a huge fan of their normal studio headphones, but not their earbuds) and other cheap off brand as well as cheap known brand earbuds. These sound the absolute best. Even comparing to the 99.99 bose earbuds, these sony's just sound way better. The only difference between the sony's and the bose is that if you want to lay your head down on a pillow, resting on the side of your face and ear, the bose are way more comfy and you can sleep with them in, while these protrude just a little to where you might get some ear agitation which isn't a huge deal. So at the moment I use the sony's as long as I can, and IF I sleep with my earbuds in (binaural beats use) then I will switch to the bose so I can lay on my ear with zero discomfort or ear pain.
6/5 I recommend you try these sony's. I got the blue pair as I like a little color in my life, ive had enough black and white earphones/earbuds to last a lifetime, its nice to get blue or red at times when possible. Doesn't change the overall performance of the earbuds so I highly recommend them.
*Edit: Some paint have chipped off within three days. I don’t handle them brutality but the paint doesn’t stay too long. However, they still look really nice and it’s a really minor thing but a warning that if you’re really picky.
Part of it is because I have an adapter on my controller to adjust the sound (only $25 though) and I’ve used both for the 4 years and had no issues. I’ve also had a problem with every single earbud staying in my ear my entire life, even the brand “YurBuds” that came with a “Guaranteed to never fall out” but I’ve never had a problem with these falling out.
Lastly, they block out sound very well too. Other earbuds, such as Apple's, let in sound where these don't. I have even put these in without any sound to block out some sound to focus more on work. They don't act as noise-canceling earbuds, but they are decent at it.
