5 out of 5 eggsIncredible headphones for this price

Pros: Extremely low price, very good sound range, light weight. They sound much better than what I was expecting.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: You will be shocked at how well these sound for the price you pay. Note, don't buy these if you are looking for full noise canceling headphones. They are only partial.

5 out of 5 eggsSONY MDR-XZ100

Pros: Low price, clear nice sound, light weight

Cons: Zero!

Other Thoughts: These are excellent low price SONY headphones for every day use. The sound is very clear and the headphones are very light and can be worn for long hours with no discomfort.
Every time I purchased any thing from Newegg, it was shipped fast and exactly as the item was described on their website. I recommend these headphones to anyone who doesn't want to pay a high price and looking for a great pair of headphones.

4 out of 5 eggsGot These At Target For $20

Pros: Not bad for $20. Obviously I wasn't expecting much, but these headphones were quite good for their price. Always remember to fiddle around with your sound card settings to get the best experience. My onboard sound has a lot of features, so maybe these won't sound as good on other PCs. The adjusting sliders work quite well, and aren't a slide kind of thing; there are distinct notches. Right-angle plug is easier to insert. Great highs and excellent lows, again, for the price.

Cons: Each can has a cord coming from it, which I think is annoying. Also, the cords are fixed to a point where they combine into one, but they twist around (they're asymmetrical) and don't line up right. Hard to explain, but it's just 'cause I'm a tad OCD; don't worry about it. They're not wireless, but they shouldn't be; they're $20! Ear-cans aren't terribly comfortable, and it feels like they should be closer to your ears, at times. Mid-range is a little low-quality sounding. One big thing: when a powerful, loud part of the song hits (I listen to hardstyle; maybe your songs won't do this), they can't get enough power right away, and the sound "drops" for a few seconds, then comes back.

Other Thoughts: Not sure about how easy it is to tell where enemies are in games: don't play FPSs much. Anyway, here's my bottom line: excellent value with great highs and lows, annoying cords, and the weird thing I told you about in the Cons. WHEW!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Headphones

Pros: It's a Sony. Great sound quality. Good over-ear fit.

Cons: Advertised as "noise canceling" headphones. They are not.

Other Thoughts: They were a good buy even without the noise canceling feature.

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad for diposable cheap phones

Pros: Decent sound, solid bass and poor man's noise canceling features at a low price. I bought 'em for work in a noisy office. I assume I'll get a year out of them cause they're kind of flimsy and may break or might just walk away some evening when I'm not there. At the price, I'm at peace with it.

Cons: Short headphone cord means I'm tethered a little closer to the desk than I'd like.... c'mon how much can you save by eliminating 8 inches. Kind of chinzy, not like to make more than a year.

Other Thoughts: There was a time when Sony was known for high quality and those days are long gone of course.... in EVERY product line. But modern prices reflect this and if you want a decent sounding pair of headphones that you'll get a year or two of use without worrying to safeguard them, etc. these are them.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Headphones for the price

Pros: Great bass especially for 20 bucks and the sound quality is alright but you get what you pay for and for 20 bucks you can't hate and great long and durable wire, ive seen 100 dollar headsets with wires that cant even compare with this

Cons: the plastics are made very very cheaply even for a 20$ set of headphone i hope they will hold up for a while and the warrenty is very short should be at least a year and they are very quiet comparing to other simular priced sets of earphones

Other Thoughts: These should last me a long time just as long the plastics hold up and the speakers wont blow on me they shouldnt because they are headphones not earbuds but you never know

4 out of 5 eggsfor a pair of Sony headphones...

Pros: Solid low end, great middles and high end.

Cons: They don't fold up, and they feel huge

Other Thoughts: I have only had these for a few hours but I've given them quite the work out. So far they are awesome with not many flaws. I mainly listen to rock and metal with a little bit of rap and other stuff thrown in but they hold up nicely. One thing Ive noticed with other headphones is that when you listen to something with a dominate musical backing lyrics tend to get a bit distorted, but these don't do that, which is a huge plus for my musical taste. There are only things that I think could be better. For one I wish it had a deeper low end but if that happened you would probably loose some quality with the middles and highs. I wish these folded up so I could stick them in my book bag/laptop case when I'm not using them. Last thing would be they feel big...for instance, if you wear them and you look at yourself in a mirror they appear huge just because there made to be wide...but I found a solution...wear a hat and they dont look so big.
