      Broke immediately after warranty expired

      By UnsatisfiedCustomerNY

      from New York, NY

      Comments about Sony EX Earbud Headphones:

      I bought these headphones three months ago, and they have a 90-day manufacturers warranty. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that one side of the headphones seemed a bit fainter than the other. Then today (6/13/13), literally TWO DAYS after the warranty expired, one of the earbuds stopped working entirely. This is a situation in which I believe Sony should honor the warranty, yet thus far they have been unwilling to do so. Until they do, I'd give this product a one-star rating and would strongly recommend against purchasing these headphones.

      Interesting... But...

      By R3Zon8

      from Riverside, CA

      Comments about Sony EX Earbud Headphones:

      I got this pair for Christmas and was thoroughly surprised. I wasn't expecting much though for a $40 set with a remote, which is extremely nice to have, I was expecting a better change than the stock iPhone headphones.... And there was change alright. The bass was brought out a little more but not to the point of where it gets annoying, but the mods were pretty much left the same. The Highs around 5kHz+ made me wince everytime I had my headphones at normal level. They hurt and now I have to get used to listening to my headphones lower because Spotify doesn't have an Equalizer. Other than that, the headphones are good and you get what you pay for...

      Good, BUT

      By RedTruck

      from northern NY

      Comments about Sony EX Earbud Headphones:

      I like the earbuds for their fit and convenience. However, this product is not made to last, and they're relatively expensive. I am on my third pair in 8 months. Typically, the left earbud (where the volume control, microphone, etc. are located) stop working, making the earbuds mono.

      Perfect for a lefty, haha!

      By SHORTstopp99

      from Minnetonka. MN

      Pros

      • Great sound quality, no earbud problems (I don't blast it like these other kids do), fruit nice

      Cons

      • Volume up mini-spring inside remote broke after more than a year of use

      Best Uses

        Comments about Sony EX Earbud Headphones:

        Love the sound, blocks out some noise, not too much bass. The only problem I could find with it was, in more than good year of frequent use; a spring for the "+" and the middle are failing in the remote. By the way, I am a lefty, and having the remote on the left earbud cord made this absolutely perfect for me!

        Disappointed!!!

        By Anonymous

        from UK

        Pros

        • When they worked they were quite good apart from the usual ear strain after about 1hour of listening

        Cons

        • Extremely poor quality

        Best Uses

          Comments about Sony EX Earbud Headphones:

          I have always been a loyal Sony customer, buying thier products over their competitors and now this is what I get in return... After owning a pair of these earphones the right side (the side that does not have the remote attached) is now officially dead, I have always treated my products especially the Sony ones like my prized possession so I made sure that nothing went wrong with them like if it ever rained I would store them away if I'm out an about and now all of a sudden the one side randomly (with a mind of its own) decides to just stop functioning. All I can follow up from that is disappointed very disappointed.

          Awesome Earbuds!!!

          By PrettyToughGirl

          from New York

          Comments about Sony EX Earbud Headphones:

          These are great ear buds all around. I have had mine for almost two ears and they still work beautifully. I have even gotten mine soaked and they still work! I am very impressed with them. Up until i bought these i was going through 2-4 pairs of ear buds a year, if not more. Plus they are quite noise canceling even though they aren't really built to be. I love them and will buy another pair when they do break!

          Left ear stopped working; cheaply made

          By musician12

          from New York, NY

          Comments about Sony EX Earbud Headphones:

          Do not purchase this earbuds! After 8 months of normal use, the left side stopped working. I called customer service and they were rude and not willing to help. Do yourself a favor and try another brand because judging from the reviews, this is a common occurrence. Why don't they fix this product!??

          Never had a problem.

          By Zavras

          from Oakland, CA

          Comments about Sony EX Earbud Headphones:

          I've never had anything bad to say about these headphones. I happened across them when a friend of mine had just upgraded and so he decided to give me his old pair of these. The sound quality is great overall. That's what was really important to me. It is the best sounding $40 pair of earbuds I've ever heard. And I never had any issue with durability. I'm not a very delicate person either. I biked with these on a regular basis, these things were repeatedly cast into my pockets and bumped around all day, and I never lost audio in either earbud, and the remote has never given me trouble either. I listen to my iPod about 5 hours a day on average (usually more) at a range of different volumes, and even throughout all of that abuse, these things have never blown out. Overall really great headphones. Durable, great sound, and really well designed too. I would recommend these headphones to anyone and everyone.

          Good earphones, cheaply made.

          By Jareem

          from Washington, DC

          Comments about Sony EX Earbud Headphones:

          Much like a lot of reviewers on here, I noticed that after a couple of months of use, the volume and the mic just stopped working. The headphones still work, but that's not what I bought them for. I would imagine that spending any amount of money on a particular item that it would go without saying that they should be better made and for this, with a brand name like Sony, I am thoroughly disappointed that I'm out of $40 for this purchase. I can assure you that I'm very apprehensive about purchasing another Sony product after this. For the amount I spent, I expect better.
