5 out of 5 eggsFits my ears very well

Pros: It fits my ears very well, and sounds good. Good fit naturally provide better sound isolation.

Cons: Short cable. Not a noise canceling head phone.

Other Thoughts: I have good experiences so far with other Sony head phones as well. I just love how it fits, and it is priced to move. It's not noise canceling head phone, so not the best for frequent travelers, but it is great for gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsComfortable and High Fidelity

Pros: I love these little suckers. The neodididumumum magnets make the sound superb. And, they're comfortable! For me anyway.

Cons: The cord is too short! Might want to invest in a cheap extension cable.

3 out of 5 eggsJust OK

Pros: Actually fairly decent sound, good cord with some strain relief

Cons: The vertical alignment is not comfortable for my ears

3 out of 5 eggsBuyer Be Aware

Pros: The drivers and sound are great.

Cons: The cable is advertised as being 4ft long. In reality it is closer to 2-1/2 feet from the ear. I had to order and extension cable from that Mono-whatever.

There is no in line volume control. Any headphones over $15 should have on standard.

Other Thoughts: I bought them for sound and the over ear comfort. I just wish the specs were closer to reality and Sony didn't cheap out on the features.
