I have a pair of Klipsch IMAGE S4 that I purchased for $89.00 from the Apple store. I thought they were good. They sounded better than all the Bose in ear headphones that I tried. I primarily used them with my iPhone 4. Most songs were good, but some songs sounded a little tinny, too much came through the headphones on the high end. This was especially true for older songs. The Klipsch rubber ear tips would not connect to my ears to make a great seal and stay in for long periods of time. My ears also began to hurt after I wore them for over 45 minutes.
Going the comfortable noise canceling route, I then bought a pair of Bose On-Ear headphones, model # 331394-0010 (they have been replaced with the new AE2 headphones). These headphones were extremely comfortable and sound wonderful. The speakers handle the highs and lows very well and truly cancel out the outside noise. The problem was the $150.00 I shelled out for them.
My wife was in the need of good, but "don't spend a lot of money" cheap, headphones. I found some Phillips and Sony headphones and tried them out. Most of them sounded horrible, so back to the store they went. Then I gave these a try; model MDREX58V. They sounded incredible. I could not believe the sound I was getting out of a $20 pair of in ear headphones. They easily bettered the sound of my Klipsch headphones. I ended up going back and buying another pair for myself.
KEEP IN MIND THAT NOT ALL SONY HEADPHONES SOUND GOOD AND YOU CAN'T GO BY THE PRICE. I tried more expensive Sony headphones and they did not sound as good as these.
Well, I have had these same headphones, and my wife has had hers, for about a year and a half now.Read more ›
very small size, comfortable for sleeping on side
convenient in line volume control
First off, these are very comfortable Earbuds! They come with three different sized Silicon Ear Tips that are easily switchable. They have three different colors for the sizes, so they are easily distinguishable (Pale is Small, Green is Medium, Blue is Large). Personally I went with small sized Ear Tips. These Earbuds are very small and light. I mostly use the Sony XB40EX, so I was used to its heavy feel, but after trying these, I felt like I didn't even have anything in my ears. They're that light and comfortable. they also won't slip out of your ears easily like most other Earbuds, and you can easily put your head down on them.
The sound quality on these are also good, as you would expect from Sony Earbud Headphones. Its low ends and high ends are decent, and everything in between sounds good. It has a clear and rich sound, and the balance between the low ends and high ends is good. Overall they sound good, but don't expect them to be that great either. They get the job done well, but they're nothing special. It's exactly what you would expect from a Sony Earbud Headphone for this price range.
Other additions I like about these Headphones are the Gold Plated, L - shaped Headphone Jacks. Many times, my headphone jacks have come off, due to the conventional shape of the jacks, but with these L - Shaped jacks, you shouldn't have any problems. I also like the color coded Left and Right markers on the Headphones which are easily distinguishable.Read more ›
The problem is that I have now gone through four pairs of these in a little under three years. The durability is just not there. Granted, one of those four sets was lost due to me accidentally washing them, but the other three were the same issue each time - the rubber/plastic encasement around the actual jack came off and the exposed wires were damaged.
Like I said above, my experience in actually USING the product has been nothing but excellent. I just don't want to have to buy a new set of them every six months.
