    > MUSIC QUALITY – The quality of music using the Sony MDREX15LP is very good – but with little base. The base is as good as any brand or model of earbud. That’s just a matter of physics, earbud drivers are simply to small to produce good base. (Some might produce louder base, but “loud” (lacking any detail) is not the same thing as “good”). Suggestion, use the earbuds when you are out, but purchase a Sony ZX headphone set for listening to music at home.> VOICE QUALITY – Clean, clear and crisp in the voice-range, without fiddling with an equalizer – largely because the base is poor. So these (or similar) earbuds are clearly the choice for listening to audiobooks, podcasts, talking on your phone, etc.> EXERCISE, ETC – Stays in place better than most earbuds. But, if you engage in strenuous exercise, consider Panasonic ErgoFit, which fit deeper in your ear. The down side of the Panasonic ErgoFit is that they fit so securely that it is difficult to get them out of your ear quickly, to answer a phone, etc.> SYMMETRY – The Sony MDREX15L are close to being bilaterally symmetrical – It doesn’t really matter if you put the put the left earbud in your right ear, etc. However, the Panasonic ErgoFit are not, they fit deeper into the ear, and are shaped differently to match your right and left ear canals. It can take a while to get used to inserting the right Ergofit earbud into your right ear, and the left into the left.> ISOLATION – All truly in-the-ear earbuds, with cup-shaped rubber cushions, are good at reducing outside noise, better than headphones – often good enough for air travel (depending on the aircraft and the location of your seat). Many earbud brands claim to feature “noise cancellation” but do not actually have any noise cancellation circuitry. Passive isolation (such as provided by the Sony MDREX15LP earbuds), is NOT noise cancellation. Feedback reduction (on wi-fi earbuds with microphones) is often called noise cancellation, but isn’t. Beware that while true noise cancellation works moderately well for aircraft engines (and similar sounds), it doesn’t work at all for screaming children or random noise. If your earbuds feel loose in your ear, you may need to install large cushions on the earbuds, to get them to seal in your ear canal good enough to provide good isolation.> COMFORT – The secret to comfort when using earbuds is to use the smallest cushions which work for you. Three sets, small, medium, and large are included with the Sony MDREX15LP earbuds. You might be most comfortable with smaller cushions. It a can also take a while to build up tolerance. So, if earbuds hurt your ears, build up slowly wearing them a little longer each day. It can take weeks to get to the point that you can wear them all day long without pain. Changing, or replacing, earbud cushions is easy — just pull the cushion off, and push the new one (or cleaned one) back on.> PLUG – The plug is angled, at 90 degrees, unfortunately. If you pull on the cord, you won’t easily pull the plug out the socket, but you will put on strain on the cord (where the cord attaches to the plug), and potential damage it. In my experience, this is how most headphones fail.> PACKAGING – The Sony MDREX15LP earbuds that I purchased came in wonderful frustration–free packaging — in a small plastic bag in a small easy-to-open cardboard box. But, I can’t promise that you won’t get a horrible retail anti-theft pack. Amzn used to promote and feature frustration-free packaging — but, sadly, doesn’t anymore.> SLEEPING – The Sony MDREX15L don’t stick out as far as some other brands, and so, may be more comfortable when resting with your head to the side (or inside a helmet). Panasonic ErgoFit fit deeper in the ear, and are a little more comfortable in such situations. APTEK offers a nice earbud set for sleeping that is even smaller–but the cushion is built-in, so you can’t choose the cushion size. However, even with the APTEKs, I cannot comfortably sleep with an earbud in the ear that is on the pillow. My solution – I just use one earbud in the ear that is NOT on the pillow. In fact, I recycle earbud sets where one earbud has failed, by cutting the failed earbud off, and using the working earbud, shifting the earbud from ear to ear if I change sides.> TIP – CLEANING EARBUDS – The build up of earwax is a serious problem. It can actually muffle and distort or block the sound, and when it gets that bad, effective cleaning is difficult or impossible. The best and simplest strategy is to take a look at your earbuds every few days, and vigorously scratch/flick the open hole of the cushion several times. That breaks loose the wax into flakes, which you can then just blow away. Wiping (such as with a Q-tip) doesn’t work so well (unless you take the cushions off, clean them, and reinstall them), because wiping with a Q-tip may just grind wax into the little screen in front of the speakers, which is then impossible to clean. Caveat, Sony MDREX15L earbud cup-cushions are a slightly different shape from other brands, with a smaller hole, and seems to collect less earwax — even so, regularly checking and clearing earwax is a good thing to do.

    Comfort: Not the Best. I’d say 5/10.Durability: Not sure. Each pair I had lasted 6 months. But I was pretty rough on them.Appearance: I’d say their good. Wire was appealing. Not my favorite bud shape, but to each their own.Sound Quality: Good. At this price point your not gonna really hear much difference between competitors. I did notice a little sharpness in female voices/higher frequences, but its unnoticeable unless your comparing.What I want to add:L shape connecter. Amazing. +1.Volume control, Erght! 0/10. Pretty bad, gotta turn them way up to listen.Overall good earphones. I wouldn’t encourage you, but I wouldn’t discourage you from buying these. You will be satisfied. Though I do prefer the panasonic ergo fit earphones for my small ears, and the snug fit, these are basically the same.

    There’s a running gag in my family. I lose headphones weekly, and I’m always purchasing them. I’ve been through dozens of headphones, and these are some of the best. The price is great, and although they aren’t perfect (they don’t completely cancel out noise, tangles easily), they work well for the price range (if you’re constantly replacing headphones like me). There’s no static when you listen to music, it is great to use the microphone (nobody has complained while I am on the phone), and they are a sleek design. If I lose this set, I will most likely repurchase them as I am pretty satisfied.

    If you love listening to music constantly, this product gets the job done but has room for improvement. These are super cute (the pink color way) and work great too! The noise cancellation feature is effective; however it’s not a cure-all across all soundscapes. The sound quality is strong because the levels are clear and crisp. (Frank Ocean “Close To You” goes crazy in these headphones). The volume control feature is fair. I wish the little button where the microphone is located worked better. Besides that, these are still the best pink earbuds I’ve ever owned. The wires are thin, so it feels a bit cheap, but trust me: if you only care about swag and sound quality … add these to your cart. 🎶🎀

    This is the second time I’ve ordered these Sony earbuds as I was very impressed with my first pair. The sound quality is good as is the voice quality of the microphone. For an inexpensive pair of earbuds, these are also pretty durable. I had the first pair for about 5 months before they finally gave out. The reason I didn’t give them 5 stars was because the sound quality from the right side wasn’t great all the time with my first pair. It was strange, as the sound quality of the right earbud seemed to vary from app to app. I think there may have been a slight defect, as both sides of my new pair work equally well. I definitely recommend these.

    I’m very particular with sound quality. I tested these with 8D, 24D, an 32D songs and I’m impressed. This model offers great and clear sound. It’s not the best quality earbuds but it’s great enough for the price. I can compare the sound quality to the samsung or apple earbuds but these are better in terms of comfort in your ears.Just make sure to use the right size of earpads for your ears. These need to be snug fit and shoudn’t have air gaps when you wear them.

    Normally I would have a negative option, cause headphones like these tend to break when they get caught on something… but interestingly enough, these seem to hold up pretty well.I’ve had these get caught on a table corner, a nail, the fridge door, and a few other objects, and rather than snapping, they held up really well.So, let’s go over the sound and comfort.For sound, they seem to be very good handling both LOUD and QUIET sounds, including music and noise. Obviously, like every other pair of headphones, they do have a loudness limit, but this limit seems to be past 100 volume for MOST music (except metal).As for comfort, I mean… not gonna lie, but I actually have fallen asleep few times with these in my ears. They’re insanely comfortable and even make for a great noise reduction tool when stuff around you is loud.All and all, a 5 ★ product, would buy again if I needed to.
