Stylish, business class earphones

Pros: Detailed sound

Cons: A little bit thin

I actually got these on sale for less than $10, so thanks to the guy who probably didn't print the price correctly. Anyway, these earphones use a fairly large dynamic driver, which you listen to from the side. This improves bass, which is very detailed and well extended, and the treble too is very crisp...almost to the point of being fatiguing.   For $10 these are a bargain, but their retail of about $75 is far more realistic. As with most Sony, the higher the model the more detailed they usually are, so if you don't need the aluminium trim and the leather case, a cheaper pair might have a darker, more engaging sound. They are somewhat analytical to listen to.

Pros: Unique shape, Eye-catching housing, A step-up from standard earpieces.

Cons: Cost, Sound quality could be better, Insecure fit. Price tag could be better set.

This flaw affected the performance. Every size of the provided ear buds I tried yield similar results. (Unless triple Flanges are in use) Portability Sony provides a leather travelling case along with it and it does help in storing them neatly. I would not say they are very portable as they don’t give a secure fit into the ears. The need of constantly adjusting your earpiece securely when one brings it out is not...
