“ These in-ear clip-style earphones are great for working out. They have decent sound, but like many consumer-oriented 'buds, over-emphasize the bass at the sake of the mids. Trebles are pretty good. I use these headphones out and about, and exercising as the clips are really handy for keeping on. However, since the clips are replaceable and removable, one can use them as regular IEMs as...” --jackgopack4
“ It's sadly discontinued now, and i couldn't really find a Sony alternative at this price and value. It looks good, the housing is made of strong high quality plastic and metal, sounds good and forgiving, and is comfortable with decent isolation. Mine doesn't work anymore. To make the J-cable, Sony took 3 separate cables, each different in length and soldered them...” --dantelectro
“ 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
“ These were actually supplied with a Sony X-Series Walkman, which has built in cancelling. The headphones themselves have little mics on the back, and this is fed to the Walkman using an ordinary headset plug like you'd expect a handsfree kit to have. To be honest I've never found the noise cancelling feature to be useful, and even if I did, any headset with a mic in it would be a better...” --BBBS
“I bought these because the sound of the wind I could hear during cycling while wearing headphones was annoying me and I figured I might as well give IEMs a try instead of buying another pair of headphones, however I did not want to spend a lot of money on something I might not find comfortable. In short, these IEMs are harsh and sibilant with an overwhelming amount of muddy and bloated bass...” --Akiho
“Good headphones for the price. Sound like the sound magic e10 with slightly more bass and more distant sound stage with muddier treble. Cord seems flimsy, but all in all decent sound reproduction for the price. Sounds good with rock, classical, and edm. Slightly bass heavy for my liking ” --astone
“ 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
“ 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. Unfortunately, I find them totally unacceptable for music, though they're a better fit for portable use or the computer because of EQ. Several posts compared the sound quality to etymotic's 4 IEM, uh, no way in hell. Proper fit...” --KlausGut
