Cable

Cable:
"The original headphones were excellent, but unfortunately the wire going to the right earpiece broke while trying to untangle them from a pile of audio cables."
_
"The cord length, a problem I have seen with other headphones that are too short, is just right."
_
"However, they do sometimes flip on and off, like when an old pair's cord is partially broken, though I just got them today."
_
"Dislikes improvement needed: Personally, I like most everything about these, so let me add some things that I found other people had problems with...--The cord is short and catches when they exersize--the ear clips are so loose they fall off during aerobic exercise--they do not cancell out enough exterior sound to be worth listening through in very noisy enviornmentsOverall:Are these the best headphones God's ever granted us?"
_
"The only complaint I could really have is that you can easily tangle the cord but that's mostly my fault."
_
"I was worried when I read another review that said the cord could have been a bit longer."
_
"These have a great cord length, as I like to pop my phone in my pocket while I ride my bike, so they don't pull on my ears when I turn my head, and they've held up longer than other headphones I've had."
_
"There was no bruising of the ear like with earbuds and the quality and flexibility of the cables were excellent."
_
"Tangle-free cord (3.5 feet) is adjustableDelete Tangle-free and the description is accurate."
_
"PROS:> Wrap around design is convenient for workouts and keeps the cables manageable> Good sound quality for the price> Durable for its price range - can toss in your gym bag without being too worried about damageCONS:> The plastic that wraps around your ear is not very flexible and even after several adjustment sessions the memory of the plastic always moved back to its original position> Sound quality is good, however sweat from working out tends to work its way into your ear canal and loosen the grip of the earpieces - found that they kept sliding out> After about 5-6 months, a build up of ear wax dirt is apparent in the holes (I make sure to clean my ears and the earpieces after each work out with air dry!"
_
"The cord is longer than usual so that makes it nice when you have your mp3 or phone in your pocket and its not trying to pull the ear buds out of your ear."

Clip

Clip:
"The cord is super short, the buds don't sit well in my ears and the clips are too big to fit snuggly around my ears."
_
"Those worked very well for me due to:1)Ergonomic ear clip - hard to remove accidentally and comfortable to wear.2)The headphone driver does not enter in the ear canal, just rests on the outside, directed forward."
_
"I have had these in the past and they were fine.....BUT...this time they broke ....piece came out of ear clip....afer the first use !"
_
"Unfortunately, the clips are really big compared to my ears, so they fall off just moments after I put them on."
_
"Even with the clips, they did not stay snug to my ear, and were uncomfortable."
_
"One reason for this problem is that there's no clip, and I wear them attached to my Motoactv which I wear on my wrist."
_
"These headphones fit my ears perfectly and never fall off thanks to the J clip design."
_
"JVC HAEB75B Sports Clip HeadphoneLightweight, great sound, stay on the ear while running, boxing, etc."
_
"I bought my first pair of these headphones in 2005 and a 2nd pair in 2008 what makes the headphones great is the ear clips that allow the headphones to not fall out while wearing them."
_
"i use these in conjunction with the MORECO Bluetooth adapter ( the cheapest model is just as good as the more expensive) the adapter turns these into bluetooth headphones.. great to clip on your waist and set your phone on your treadmill without wires"
_
"I have seen other clip designed ear phones that are more comfortable than this ones but they cost more."

Color

Color:
"I thought these were the same (just different color), but they are not that comfortable, can't wear for extended period of time (e. g., long flight) because they make my ear sore."
_
"As the title says, I am disappointed in the color."
_
"I love the color but otherwise BIG disappointment!"
_
"For those of you complaining about the color not being exactly what you expected... come on... are you kidding?"
_
"My *only* complaint would be the color on a pair I ordered - The green set on the screen compared to what I received in person were different."
_
"Love the color, a fern green as pictured, works excellently, fits behind the ears comfortably."
_
"The color is great, the headphones are durable and fit my ears, and the sound quality is good enough for me."
_
"I love the color and it fits in and around my ear the way I like."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"These are comfortable and they work, but aren't particularly robust, and certainly aren't worth more than $15."
_
"They feel relatively comfortable when used between 30-90 minutes but it can get uncomfortable and irritating after that."
_
"Really not comfortable, at first the sound was terrible until you force it deep inside your ear."
_
"I bought them to replace a set of klipsch I lost, and while the sound quality in these is not nearly as good, they are more comfortable and do not fall out during my workouts, which is what I use them for."
_
"Those worked very well for me due to:1)Ergonomic ear clip - hard to remove accidentally and comfortable to wear.2)The headphone driver does not enter in the ear canal, just rests on the outside, directed forward."
_
"The plastic parts that fit over the ears are not very comfortable and the speakers on mine have played a weird hissing noise inbetween songs since the very first time I used them."
_
"Comfortable fitting with good sound."
_
"They're quite comfortable and fit perfectly in my ear, unlike earbuds or the Sony earphones that wrap completely around the ear."
_
"The good first:These are very comfortable and stay on your ears."
_
"Great Sound and comfortable"
_
"Comfortable, good sound, and nice price"

Connector

Connector:
"I've gone through three or four sets -- each usually lasts me about 6 months before they succumb to sweat, a wiring or connector fault, or some other issue."
_
"Two complaints - the cord could be a bit longer, and, the jack is a slight bit touchy in the player (I use these in my Blackberry, you can't take calls but can hear music fine) if you wiggle it the music may go in and out."
_
"In fact it actually FIXED a problem my iphone had with previous headphones where if you turned the jack left or right the sound would go silent."
_
"These, though, have the downside of the straight jack (see below)."
_
"Not just for the cost but for the quality of sound and they dont get tangled up from shoving into pockets,plus I like the length of cord you get makes it easy to adust under jacket etc... You cant go wrong with these! "
_
"Good of Sony to make sure that the input jack is small enough to fit around phone cases."
_
"Anyway, I don't think I would ever buy or recommend this kind of ear jack to anyone."
_
"This happened with my pair before the current one, so I bought another pair, but after about 3 and a half weeks the connection on the headphones stopped working properly, and now I get static as well as a ton of noise whenever the jack moves even slightly."
_
"Good input connector as well, no problems so far."
_
"The jack bends at a 90-degree angle, which is good because it keeps the cord parallel with the phone device so it's less likely to get bent and damaged."

Design

Design:
"The design is not that great."
_
"These headphones (MDR-J10) have a good design for use during activities, but overall, I'm disappointed with them."
_
"The newer 'closed-loop' design of over-the-ear headphones are too uncomfortable and this 'open-loop' style are soooooo much better! "
_
"However the wrap-around design does not do the best job accommodating to you ear shape and you'll find the sound quality diminish with the amount you sweat in a workout."
_
"They go in sideways, weird design but works."
_
"I don't know if it is because my ears are too small or maybe it is because I wear glasses when I workout but they just would not stay in my ear; I had to repeatedly push them back on and the design is uncomfortable because the actual sound part isn't directed straight into the ear."
_
"The SONY ear buds are a much more ergonomic and comfortable design."
_
"These headphones fit my ears perfectly and never fall off thanks to the J clip design."
_
"The design does let in ambient noise however, which is a good and bad thing depending on where you want to wear them."
_
"headphones feature Vertical in-the-ear design for comfort,Designed for comfort; delivers pain."
_
"They are the perfect design, but I can't use my phone with these headphones while it's in my pocket."

Durable

Durable:
"These are more rigid and less comfortable, but the tradeoff seems to be that they will be much more durable (the soft ones eventually broke off on both ears where they attached, these are a single piece)."
_
"The earbuds are still small enough to fit in my pocket while I'm not using them, and are very comfortable and durable during my long days at work that include constant lifting and moving around."
_
"I've been searching for earphones strictly for the purpose of running and the MDR-J10 is OK for comfort but isn't durable, I was only able to use it once before the left side started shorting out."
_
"The Sony are a little more durable because they have bendable parts (I broke my first pair of Sennheiser's by jamming them into my gym bag each day), but the Sennheiser offers a way better sound and feel."
_
"Cute and durable."
_
"These are more rigid and less comfortable, but the tradeoff seems to be that they will be much more durable (the soft ones eventually broke off on both ears where they attached, these are a single piece)."
_
"They stay on great and are comfortable and durable."
_
"They're durable aside from the snags, have great sound, comfortable, and won't fall off your ears."

Hook

Hook:
"The hard ear hook is uncomfortable for prolonged use but fine for running."
_
"They are fantastic for working out, the ear piece stays firmly inside of your ear and doesn't pull out easily due to the hooks going behind your ear, a great feature if you're sweaty."
_
"The problem for me is that those wings that are used to hook over your ear would slowly rotate out away from my head as I ran."
_
"I bought these headphones to exercise and they are ok but don't stay on as well as I would like or as well as similar hook over ear phones I have used from Phillips and Panasonic."
_
"I love these for running because I can hook them on my collar when I don't want them in my ears."
_
"The hook ones seemed to work the best."
_
"The ones these replace had a much more comfortable hook and overall design."
_
"The hooks over the ear fit well."
_
"They work well and actually stay in my ears, thanks to the hooks on them."

Jogging

Jogging:
"Cons: Comes off ear when jogging and exercisingVerdict: I would not recommend this because there are better alternatives whether you are buying these with the intention to exercise or not."
_
"The sound quality is good, though not amazing...it's good enough for when you're jogging around town or on the treadmill, in the gym, etc."
_
"I purchased these in an attempt to find an inexpensive jogging headphone."
_
"This would make my forth attempt at finding some headphones that wont fly off when I go jogging."

_
"They are uncomfortable, terrible sound, and fall off while jogging!"

_
"Again how can you go wrong with a pair of great sounding, light weight headphones that cost less than $6.00."

Listening

Listening:
"So I end up with an uncomfortable listening experience that keeps falling out of my sound holes."
_
"I wouldn't recommend them for general listening but if you're in a situation where an ear bud could potentially fall out and an over the ear headphone would look stupid, these work in a pinch."
_
"Although thses headphones are not for audiophiles, they are more than adequate for listening to music when I exercise."
_
"It is fine for casual listening but definitely misses the boat for quality sound."
_
"The sound quality is not great at all and I'm not even listening to music."
_
"They will not replace a good expensive pair for listening to music for long periods of time."
_
"Really good sound and great for walking and listening b c they stay on."
_
"I spend 8+ hours listening to audiobooks while I work, I needed a good pair of headphones that would not hurt my ears or would not be uncomfortable."
_
"I even tried to remove the sound hole grill but pretty much destroyed the earpieces doing soOVERALL:> The Sony MDR-J10 Headphones offer good sound quality for the price point and are a durable choice for listening to music while exercising."

Loud:

_
"I've had Train conductors, bus drivers, and even regular people complain to me that the music was too loud."
_
"They can go very loud without leakage and are great for almost any purpose."
_
"Light, loud and sound good."

Music

Music:
"On a regular day, it's OK, I can listen to the music although it's not the best."
_
"I usually get headphones with horrible sound quality but my music is just the right quality for me!"
_
"May not be the best for high-fidelity music but work just fine for pod cast listening."
_
"Worst sound quality ever, not recommended, sounds like music coming out of a metal can."
_
"Music quality is Good for the price but not the best."
_
"Only highs, no bass, no midrange, and it actually becomes painful before you can get to a volume to hear the music when it just becomes a jumbled mess of racket."
_
"I love these for work as a medical transcriptionist and also for my music."
_
"The ear clip keeps them from falling off completely, but with the ear bud not directly in your ear you can't hear the music very well and what you do hear sounds poor because its not all going straight into your ear."
_
"I even tried to remove the sound hole grill but pretty much destroyed the earpieces doing soOVERALL:> The Sony MDR-J10 Headphones offer good sound quality for the price point and are a durable choice for listening to music while exercising."
_
"Also found that they are great if you like to listen to music or watch tv in bed without keeping your spouce up."
_
"I don't know how much it would be liked for those who listen primarily to music though."

Noise

Noise:
"Not for amazing sound quality or blocking out all surrounding noise but they get the job done for him in the gym."
_
"The plastic parts that fit over the ears are not very comfortable and the speakers on mine have played a weird hissing noise inbetween songs since the very first time I used them."
_
"These headphones do not have the best sound quality nor to they block out the environmental noises, but they are perfect for my needs."
_
"Its design isn't noise cancelling as there isn't a good seal in the ear but the earphones I've found that seal in your ear either fall out or are way uncomfortable."
_
"There is no sound isolation whatsoever so they are no good for a plane or any environment with ambient noise."
_
"The Sony MDR-J10 stay in your ear with no problem (running, weight training, cross training), and do a decent job of isolating noise (though not as good as the blockades)."
_
"The design does let in ambient noise however, which is a good and bad thing depending on where you want to wear them."
_
"If fitted to your ears properly, they *DO* block out a good amount of background noise; with my MP3 player at 1 3 volume, I can barely hear a finger snap from 3 feet away."
_
"Loud enough to cancel noise, good for runners, and not horribly priced."
_
"This happened with my pair before the current one, so I bought another pair, but after about 3 and a half weeks the connection on the headphones stopped working properly, and now I get static as well as a ton of noise whenever the jack moves even slightly."
_
"They don't isolate external noise, but they still sound pretty good."

Outdoor

Outdoor:
"So the sound experience is not great for outdoors."
_
"I can hear the cellphone if it rings, I can still hear ambient noises which is good when you are outdoors."
_
"Also, the sound quality is great for activity or outdoor use."
_
"They are not sound isolating, which is good if you exercise outdoors and want to be able to hear what's going on around you."
_
"I elected to again buy the same item because I found them good for outdoor use , comfortable once you get them on, with very acceptable sound while I don't feel I am unaware of surroundings because of total blocking out outside activity--you can control this by either volume level or pushing the pods less further into ear."
_
"I just couldn't justify spending greater $ on outdoor running."

Performance:
"People complain they do not perform like their over the ear super bass headphones, well no duh they are cheaper!"
_
"They are resistant to water as I have ridden in some doozy rainstorms and they never failed to perform."
_
"I mostly listen to audio books, so I can't speak to the audiophile performance qualities of the headphones - but for my purposes, they're excellent."
_
"For the price, fit and performance these perform very well otherwise."
_
"After a run I give them a quick wipe with rubbing alcohol, and they still perform great."

Plastic

Plastic:
"The material is hard on the ears, it is hard plastic, I tried for 2 days and really regret buying them."
_
"Usually I'm nervous about using all solid plastic headphones because those irritate your ears."
_
"When you wear the headphones, It feels uncomfortable due to the plastic."
_
"NOT comfortable when laying on side, as the plastic will dig into the side of the head."
_
"The plastic parts that fit over the ears are not very comfortable and the speakers on mine have played a weird hissing noise inbetween songs since the very first time I used them."
_
"One downside is comfort, they are straight up plastic so they do rub a little after long use while exercising but I can't be too critical given the price."
_
"Not terrible, but for $40 for a $5 piece of plastic...I expected it sooner than 3 days."
_
"PROS:> Wrap around design is convenient for workouts and keeps the cables manageable> Good sound quality for the price> Durable for its price range - can toss in your gym bag without being too worried about damageCONS:> The plastic that wraps around your ear is not very flexible and even after several adjustment sessions the memory of the plastic always moved back to its original position> Sound quality is good, however sweat from working out tends to work its way into your ear canal and loosen the grip of the earpieces - found that they kept sliding out> After about 5-6 months, a build up of ear wax dirt is apparent in the holes (I make sure to clean my ears and the earpieces after each work out with air dry!"
_
"These use a matte black light plastic substance which makes it pretty comfortable."
_
"Even without a foam cover, the plastic molded earpieces feel comfortable and natural."
_
"(Part of e sound transmission may ba generated through direct bone transmission)3)durability - have one pair for the last 2-3 years and used it heavily without pampering - cosmetically does not look too hot, with all the plastic paint flaked off, but works perfect4)Excellent sound quality for the running application and price point (not an audiophile set, but sexy sound for jogging via pandora or mp3 - I'm not a bass mad head and not into hip hop)5)Cable length good for me either for belt strap or hand hold playerFor this price could not find any downsides."

Plug

Plug:
"They have good sound, stay put on me, the ear plugs don't hurt my ears (a constant complaint of mine when having others)."
_
"Another dissapointment was that these plugs don't stay in my ear as well as other active plugs I've used."
_
"Also I believe the 'straight plug' instead a right angle like these damaged my audio port on my phone."
_
"very nice design, it can be plug into ear and not easy to fall our."
_
"(In the past it was almost always the plug that failed on other phones)Anyone who has any experience with sport phones like these knows that this kind of audio electronics have a tendency to die young..the mortality rate can be high because of the motion and wear on wiring connected with workouts taking em in and out of pockets and backpacks, dog and or cat attacks, washer drama, and so on takes its toll."
_
"I think the sound is fine, but the plugs themselves are not totally comfortable, a little awkward, also a bit awkward to put on and I feel awkward wearing them, because they are just a bit too obvious and a bit geeky."
_
"They have good sound, stay put on me, the ear plugs don't hurt my ears (a constant complaint of mine when having others)."
_
"Another dissapointment was that these plugs don't stay in my ear as well as other active plugs I've used."
_
"I've been using a pair old JVC plugs that have what I consider outstanding sound quality and these Sony's don't measure up."
_
"Not terrible quality (better than other plugs I've had), but was hoping for top-notch quality from Sony."

"I go through headphones quickly because the moisture damages them, but these hold up just as long as others in the same price range."
_
"These are the best inexpensive earphones you can get for working out."

"Not recommended for small ears."

"I wouldn't recommend them for working out if you have small or sensitive ears."

_
"The in-ear part of these headphones do not fit nicely in my ear; either they are too small or my ear hole is too big."

Sound

Sound:
"These headphones are horrible, they sound like cheap 10$ ones you can buy at rite aid...and these cost over 40bucks!"
_
"I used these headphones because they're comfortable and excellent for running cycling all manner of exercise, but they also have middling sound and horrible durability."
_
"They do the job, though don't fit the ear perfectly for me and don't have the best sound"
_
"Great for the price, doesn't fall out, good sound."
_
"It makes them sound much much better, but not as good as they would sound of the designers had actually done a real ergonomics study and scanned a human ear to design around."
_
"Comfortable fitting with good sound."
_
"They dont sound vey good."
_
"They do not come out of your ear whatsoever and the sound quality is decent."
_

Speaker

Speaker:
"These are Okay...Seem very loose around my ear and the way the speaker is angled is a little weird for sound."
_
"Unfortunately, the speakers sit a fraction of an inch from the actual ear canal and that fraction of an inch distorts (muffles) the sound somewhat."
_
"If I wanted good sound quality, I wouldn't get earbuds, and certainly, anytime you are sweating into the speakers, the sound quality degrades."
_
"The plastic parts that fit over the ears are not very comfortable and the speakers on mine have played a weird hissing noise inbetween songs since the very first time I used them."
_
"The problem I had is that the speaker part would not always stay far enough in my ear to get the best quality sound."
_
"these are the greates earpieces i ever seen as far as sound and confort and ill probably never buy a diferent one, the only problem is that ive had at leat 5 they rarely last more than 8 month and its always the same problem the left speaker just quits but besides that they are awesome"
_
"I understand that these tiny speakers cannot do much bass, but SOME would be appreciated."
_
"I use them when I go out running, and I appreciate how there is no foam or anything around the speakers, either."
_
"I don't know if my ear canal is small or what but the only time I get good quality sound is if I cram the speakers down into my ears, where of course they don't stay."
_
"This is coming from someone who knows nothing about speakers, I am usually happy with just about anything."
_
"If the speakers were turned toward the ear, this would be a very good product."

Sport

Sport:
"Because sports headphones tend to degrade from use due to the sweat I stick to the $30 pair, and just buy a new one each year or two."
_
"Hopefully Sony never stops making this model because I hate the newer style sports headphones."
_
"I've owned quite a few different kinds of sports headphones and these are the probably the worst I've had."
_
"Even though this is the best sport ear phones I've had - it's also the worst because of something faulty with it in itself - the left earbud."
_
"(In the past it was almost always the plug that failed on other phones)Anyone who has any experience with sport phones like these knows that this kind of audio electronics have a tendency to die young..the mortality rate can be high because of the motion and wear on wiring connected with workouts taking em in and out of pockets and backpacks, dog and or cat attacks, washer drama, and so on takes its toll."
_
"I started searching for a sports headphone after I broke the earlier one in just two weeks."
_
"The best sports earphones, although they are getting more expensive every time I buy them"
_
"JVC HAEB75B Sports Clip HeadphoneLightweight, great sound, stay on the ear while running, boxing, etc."
_
"Sony Sony MDRE828LP earbuds:Good bass, but not a sports headphone."
_
"Decent pair of on-ear sport headphones."
_
"As an alternative, I would recommend the JVC HAEBX85Z Inner Ear Sports Clip Headphones."

Treadmill

Treadmill:
"I have always had problem with headphone falling out when on the treadmill."
_
"The sound quality is good, though not amazing...it's good enough for when you're jogging around town or on the treadmill, in the gym, etc."
_
"They don't really sit in my ears but if I hold them close to my head with my hands they are pretty great...(unfortunately, not really what I want to do on a treadmill) Honestly, I am just happy that they stay on my head if I am running or bouncing around."
_
"Loved it so much I ordered three more - excellent for treadmill workout."
_
"Works great on the treadmill, they stay in place"
_
"i use these in conjunction with the MORECO Bluetooth adapter ( the cheapest model is just as good as the more expensive) the adapter turns these into bluetooth headphones.. great to clip on your waist and set your phone on your treadmill without wires"
_
"The good: headphones stay on the ear; good for working out - treadmill, running, etc."
_
"They don't really sit in my ears but if I hold them close to my head with my hands they are pretty great...(unfortunately, not really what I want to do on a treadmill) Honestly, I am just happy that they stay on my head if I am running or bouncing around."

Treble

Treble:
"However like I some-what stated above, the amount of fizzy, abrasive treble from 3,000 hz all the way to 10k hz+ is nasty and uncontrolled."
_
"When compared with earpods that came with my iPhone these are just terrible; no bass, no volume, treble not clear."
_
"They sound really tinny; the treble is way too high and sharp, painful to the hearing, even at a low volume."
_
"That is all you can hear, there are so much treble that is unbearable."
_
"These are NOT comfortable for me, they slip out of my ears, and the actual buds are turned toward the front of your ears when you put them on rather than inward, which is horrible and at least to me leads to only hearing the treble end of what you are listening to and no bass, which gives me a headache."
_
"Cons----- Mediocre SoundThe sound quality is slightly tinny (too much treble) and the bass is weak.> Driver UnitThe driver unit is the heart of a earphone headphone speaker responsible for sound production."
_
"(I can recommend the Sony MDR-V600 series as a great entry-level headphone with good, tight bass, impressive treble, clear mids, and comfy ear pads.)"
_
"Midrange is clear, and treble is crisp."
_
"These get fairly loud and have a great mix of treble to bass."
_
"The Treble is nice, but the Bass is lacking."
_
"A LOT of bass, and decent treble."

Value

Value:
"The sound quality isn't the greatest, but it is perfect for the value."
_
"Sony earphones with a 3 fot long cord, these are really great value for the $$ - all of $10.00 - They also last a long time.. - The only problem with them is that they get stuck on anything you can imagine, unless you tuck them down inside a shirt.. i. e if you just drop them in front of you you'll find them stuck or hooked on grocery carts, , steering wheels, anything possible, almost like an ear headphone version of the string theory and Murphy's law combine.. i. e. if they can possibly get stuck on something they will.. Other than that they are a great buy.. sound great, and last a long time for the money.. that's why they get 4 out of 5 stars."
_
"For me this is the perfect mix of comfort, quality and value."

Weight

Weight:
"The ear clips hold the speakers securely in my ears, without the weight of a headband, or the annoying falling-out-every-time-you-open-your-mouth issue I've experienced with countless earbud brands."
_
"They are light weight but often become itchy and uncomfortable."
_
"Again how can you go wrong with a pair of great sounding, light weight headphones that cost less than $6.00."
_
"they're the best lightweight you can buyJanice C"
_
"Nice feel, lite weight ,Great price ."
_
"Lightweight and comfortable."
_

iPod

iPod:
"My only issue is that the connection to my iPod is not very good and I am not sure if the problem is with the headphone or the iPod so I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 on that basis."
_
"I was looking for a pair of headphones that were fairly lightweight and I could use for exercising both lifting and running and don't slip out of your ears like the crappy ones that come default with every iPod."
_
"Now by the time I purchased a pair of these headphones, I had already gone through 3 pairs of headphones within a year's time (JVC, SkullCandy, Ipod), and I was really upset at the fact that I kept having to fork over more money just because I couldn't find a pair that lasted longer the 2-3 months."
_
"Fearing the worst I plugged them into my ipod... they work!"
_
"The Not So Good: The wires are thin compared to the iPod ear buds, but they are standard for typical ear phones in this price range."
_
"They sound great paired with my ipod shuffle and stay in my ears even when I'm moving at a good clip bouncing around."
_
"My only issue is that the connection to my iPod is not very good and I am not sure if the problem is with the headphone or the iPod so I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 on that basis."
_
"also the cable is nice and long so i can drop my ipod into a knee pocket and not have it yank at my ears"
_
"I have gone through countless pair of earbuds, headphones because I sweat when working out...have been using this Sony product on a regular basis for a month now and so far so good...they actually stay in place...the sound is better than my ipod earbuds and I highly recommend Sony earphones."
