First of all, we all have different likes and tastes. So, this is my side of the story. After reading the reviews on Sonys store, I felt that these headphones were going to be really good. I used apples EarPods and headphones almost the entire time I have had my devices. I thought it might be time for a change and experience sound from another developer. I received the headphones in the mail a little after I purchased and opened them right away. Plugged them in my iphon and turned on my favorite song. I definitely heard a change. The sound was light like a feather. The bass was very faint, the vocals were a bit improved. I looked for answers on the internet and a ton of others were saying the same thing. No solution was found and I truer listening again and I forced myself to listen to the music for a couple hours. I really thought of returning them. Music for me has a richness and deep feeling, and the hybrid 2-way, took that away. I then listen to a podcast to hopefully save the product from being returned and the voice was a rich and clear. So I convinced myself to keep them so when I'm on the buss to class I can use the noise canceling feature to block out the noise and listen to my favorite podcast. Plus in there computer I have good quality sound from that using the headphones. But when I play music I have to use the EarPods for better quality.
Voice improvements on podcasts
Uncomfortable for long listening periods
Overall sound is dampend

Both bass and treble sound great and with excellent depth and presence. I was skeptical after my experience with the 2-drivers but I'm glad I got these. As a testament I'm actually back buying a new pair to replace the ones my dog chewed up (this is now two pairs of earbuds he's chewed up in a month and a half, a new hiding spot is in the works.)
I'm angry to have to drop this kind of cash again but I do feel these are worth it.
