“ I use these everyday because I have yet to find any better in the sub $100 range .I plan to buy a pair of sony's 4 driver earbuds but until I do these are my favorites ” --turbomustang84
“ Got these for a birthday (so no idea on how much was paid). Had them a good few years, think I got them in 09 but could have easily been much earlier (04?) Because there a gift I've always resisted replacing them. The Y split actually cracked after a year and very nearly was the end of them, but the cable was intact inside and I used Aroldyte epoxy 2 part glue to perfectly re form the oval...” --Jetblackstar
“ Cheap, cheerful sport 'buds on clips'. They're a huge improvement over the older MDR-J10 which don't come off when pulled, so these rubber clips allow the buds to be pulled off (by accident) which saves the cable from breaking too easily when snagged. No real improvement on sound quality over the older design which is quite muddy like most buds, but other than that, it's difficult to knock...” --GREQ
“ I love these for watching movies at odd hours or on the laptop away from home. They're so comfortable that I can wear them for 6-8 hours straight.

“ Qualia design & price tag but poor quality cable, & SQ should be better at that price range. Another explanation could be that I didn't receive the real thing, since I didn't get all the accessories, box & documentation with them, just the actual EXQ1 set of in-ear earphones. They would be very well imitated fakes since cosmetically they look the same, AFAIK. ” --the wizard of oz
