Rated 5 out of 5 by 3ngineeringStudent Extremely durable headphones
I am a really ridiculous person studying engineering at the University of Vermont, and these headphones always get thrashed around in the bottom of my backpack. Whether its going from class to class or party to part, they always work and sound perfectly when I need to study for an exam or rage face without disturbing others. For headphones of this price the amount of bass is just right and not exaggerated like with beats by dre headphones or other similar brands so when I'm listening to the latest EDM tracks or blast beats from Messhugah it sounds great. This along with my Vaio C series that I've had since 2011, have helped me loads along the tumultous times I've had so far in college and expect them to be there for many years to come.
As an aside, I'm really sad the Vaio notebooks have been discontinued. My custom Vaio C series is still plugging along running processor and graphics intense programs and runs like a beauty with the SSD in put in her.
I'd recommend these headphones and Sony products in general for their overall durability and quality. Attached is a photo of my sony laptop, computer, and gaming console.

Rated 3 out of 5 by barok mdr-zx300 with my sony nwz-e464
it has good performance but less bass on my walkman nwz-e464 . decent quality for its price, good wires big and tough.. just exact length. average music for average user. balanced but little bit short on low bass boom.

If you are reading this then i am assuming that you are shopping for headphones and are unsure of what to get, in which case, stop reading now and scroll up to the "add to cart" button and press it now! You owe it to yourself, you owe it to your bank account!! Not only are these the best headphones you are going to get for this price (and they are, NO DOUBT!) But these are some of the best headphones you are going to buy in the rest of your life however long or short that may be, regardless of price. I have worn headphones that cost $500 and they were invalid, completely an insult to my ears in contrast to these audiophiliac powerhouses! If i had tried these on and heard what they can do, not knowing the price mind you, and after i tried them i asked the salesman how much they were and if he said
"Uhh......how about $200?"
I would have said
"Do you accept all the money in my pockets!?!?"
At which time i would have overturned my wallet allowing him to claim whatever fell out, and inverted my pockets, all while smiling like a fool!
No joke here guys.... If you want headphones and your budget is $40 or $400, you WONT.... you....you just WILL NOT find a better quality set then these, wont happen, can't be done..... can't do it!!!! LOOK IT UP!! lol :)
In all seriousness though potential Sound Maniac, please, quit wasting your time right now and your money and just buy the product. It'll be the best sound based decision you'll ever make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Digitalcrack why we listen!
I can't believe I'm listening to music again. I haven't been able to listen to music for the last 5 years of my life. Some how my ears or brain no long allowed me to use in ear earphones without causing migraines. So after years of missing music I decided to try over the ear earphones instead and bam!!! No headaches and no sickness. But the plus side was that I got very close to same quality I had with my $400 ultimate ears earphones. And the same sound reproduction if not better than Beats by Dre which are hundreds of dollars more. The bass is perfect and balanced with a sonic force that all bass headphones should pack. Then the mids and highs come piggy backing each other with crisp that only high end model headphone listeners have. So thank you Sony for giving back what I haven't had for at least 5 years of my life. And on top of that giving me this for little of nothing for something so amazing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JW9299 Great headphones for the price
the only reason i cant give these 5 stars is because if you are in a loud enviroment, you cant hear all of the sound from the headphones. if i am at my house, these are amazing! watching a movie on my computer is like watching it on my home theater! the sound is rich and clear in a quiet enviroment. but if you are going to be in the car or on an airplane i recommend getting noise canceling headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShadowTan AMAZING for it's price, im surprised i paid cheap
This headphone is my 2nd pair,
Im comparing these to beats.
These make beats look like they should only be worth 50 dollars. This doesn't deafen you and the quality is sustained, it is small, portable. and amazing.
there shouldnt even be a review stop reading. man up, add to cart, click order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neftali97 Best Headphones
Before buying these I read probably over 100 reviews to make sure I wouldn't waste my money. After trying them on, I was completely satisfied with them. The sound is clean and crisp. It also has a good bass response!! I really recommend these if you don't want to spend more than 100 dollars on headphones. You won't regret buying these.
