I bought the headphones with the purpose of blocking out the subway and city noises. They did that and more. The sound quality is excellent, bass and treble are a perfect blend for my tastes. Theyre big but lightweight and the silver/black combo is very sexy and sleek.

The cord is made for a musician, it is WAY too long for every day use. I have to carry a bigger purse just to house the cord. These headphones would be perfect if Sony wouldve had the foresight to let consumers have the option of a longer or shorter cord. Another flaw (very minor to me) is that if you wear earrings, these get uncomfortable with longer wear.
I definitely recommend these if you can overlook the length of the chord. Thats the only con I could find that delegated these from iPod use to keyboard practice.
