These are about the best "in the ear" headphones on the market right now from Sony. They sound pretty good but I used to have older sony "fontopia" headphones that sounded better with richer bass. My old ones costed $60 but are now discontinued. However, for the price, these are better bang for your buck. Here are the pros and cons:
Pros: Good range of sound, especially for the price. Extra entension cord adapter is nice. 3 different ear adapters assure fit and comfort.
Cons: The cord without the extender is a few inches too short. The cord with the extender is too long!
Conclusion: For the price, these are worth every penny. They pretty much blow away other headphones in the same price/model range.
However I wish they would make another model with even better audio range specs though... closer to the specs on DJ monitor type headphones. I wouldn't mind paying more to get better frequency range. I would describe these as mid-range and NOT "premium" or high-end headphones. So true audiophiles may be disappointed.
Note: The earphone cord design where one side is longer than the other is done on purpose. You are supposed to wear them with the cord behind your neck/head. Almost all of the Japanese headphones are now designed this way and it is not a design flaw.
