Rated 2 out of 5 by TdotO Only lasted 5 weeks
The left earbud stopped working after only 5 weeks of normal usage when commuting. I found the cables to be very flimsy. I owned another pair of Sony earbuds (can't remember the model #) that lasted for over a year before I lost them.
I'm very disappointed with the quality of these and there is no word of any warranty on the packaging or user manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Finder Extremely good.
Alright, i bought these earbuds, i think, a month ago. They were competing with my SteelSeries Siberia V2 gaming headphones, and frankly, they were pretty even. I, personally, had excellent durability with the things until, just a while ago, my dog ate them. Literally ate them. I couldn't even find the cords. I swear to God, she ate them.
And another thing. Most of the negative reviews are probably spam. I've seen the exact same ones on Walmart's website and such. Just a heads up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MusicLoverRach Quality Sound and Product
I was surprised to read so many reviews regarding durability complaints as I had my first pair of these headphones for a couple of years and the sound quality was excellent the entire time. No complaints. They are extremely comfortable to wear and are even a little noise cancelling. The only reason I am buying my second pair now is because they accidentally went through the wash, and even after going through the wash, they STILL worked! I'm only buying new ones because some water damage got to the sound quality. I would recommend to a friend regardless of the negative reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zilla Great!
I am an audiophile and love great sound! I bought these because my iPhone headphones broke (after about a year they fell apart and the wire became greasy... yuck!). I have a more expensive pair of Sony earbuds that I love and went around listening to anyone who would let me try their earbuds (gross). Skull Candy are way too bright and harsh, Auvio have a distorted airy sound with little bass... as two examples. I didn't want to spend $100 so didn't listen to Klipsch... the $100 Bose didn't sound or feel right to me in my ear. Beats were surprisingly harsh and fatiguing tho I like the way they are made. What I noticed is that these and the other pair of Sony earbuds I own have a fuller bass without sounding strident on top. Quite a nice rolled off treble (helped further by selecting the Reduce Treble EQ on the iPhone). But they are very listenable without EQ and I am very happy with them. I listen to them every day and cannot justify spending more as far as sound is concerned... but I do wish they were a bit more substantial. I tried the $100 Sony balanced armature buds this weekend because they look very attractive and their wires are thicker, but found them too forward and bright. Regardless of price, I prefer these cheap earbuds and think they are quite amazing sounding! I will continue listening for a better sounding product but will happily enjoy these as I do.

I am an avid Sigur Ros fan, so great sounding ear buds are necessary. These do the job perfectly. Any ear buds that can transform such a deep sound into my ears wonderfully are great in my book. Plus, at 6 months, it's the longest ear buds of mine have ever lasted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ARandomSonyFan Love These Headphones
I love these headphones. They work like noise-canceling headphones in my office - I cannot hear my cube neighbors. I love the iPod control; the buttons are much easier to use than the ones on the iPod/iPhone packaged headphones.
I've owned three pairs now - the first ones I rolled over with my office chair and broke (clearly my fault); the second pair I had for two years before I lost them; and I still own the third pair (and use them daily). I would not hesitate to buy these again if needed.
One note - don't use them while working out if you're a heavy sweater... the sweat will get into the iPod control and cause it to short out (worked fine again once dried).

Rated 1 out of 5 by goldbug not so good
So, SONY, great company. I have the TV, a Bravia.. GREAT. the PS3.. GREAT. a separate blu ray player.. GREAT.
These ear phones... garbage. And of course warranty? Not so much. Guess I should keep looking.
