Are these as good as they say? Even better than the Radius Atomic Bass?
Uhhh ohhhhh, Im going to go and hide. You will not like the responses you are going to get.
Personally I like Sony headphones..............They are decent for the price. Yeah, there is probably better...........but you would have to go online to get em. I would say, head over to Bestbuy..........give'em a listen. If you dont like the sound, return them. Bestbuy has a good return policy.
There's some great sets out there in the $40 range - and you don't have to be a music professional to appreciate them. I don't know anything about these Sonys but I wouldn't discount low-budget earphones as a class just because $40 doesn't sound like a big number by head-fi standards.
