These earbuds are premium quality for the cost. When I first purchased these earbuds for about thirty dollars, I expected an average sound quality. When I tried them out they exceeded my expectations. The bass is very clear, but not too strong.
I would not say that these earbuds are superior to sound canceling headphones, but for the size and the price these Sony earbuds are a great purchase.
The headphones also come with a small case that the earpieces fit into. Now you may be thinking that this extra may never be used, but when you are packing you headphones in a bag for a trip instead of just putting them in your pocket, this case comes in handy. It eliminates major tangling, and it ensures that the rubber earpiece will not become removed from the plastic.
That brings me to my last topic. These headphones come with three different sized rubber interchangeable earpieces to put on the actual earbud. These are made to guarantee comfort to all consumers. You may be thinking, "Won’t the rubber pieces fall off?" The answer is that is would be very difficult to accidentally remove one. The rubber attachments fit snugly onto the plastic and must be worked at to remove.
These headphones are above average quality for an average price.
