Some nice things, but not all nice...

Pros:The bass sounds "ok", the cord does not tangle.

Cons:The sound is not better than cheaper Sony models.  Does not stay in ear well.

I've always bought Sony ear buds.  It's the only brand I buy and for the money Sony is great.  Every year they release a "gimmic" ear bud which has some features you'll love and some features you're gonna hate.  The model boast having "extra base" since it has a very large driver compared to their cheaper "30 dollar" models.  However when I hear the cheaper ear buds next to these - I have some dissapointments about the sound.  I honestly prefer the sound of the cheaper ear buds because the base is fine, but you can hear the high range better.  However there are some strong points to considerer as well.  The flat cord on these makes is so the headphones never tangle (THANK GOD).  It was so annoying having the cheap model constantly tangle.  However the big draw back with this model is because they have bigger drivers the unit is heavier and pulls out of your ear.  This is a deal breaker for those that like to job or workout with ear buds.  It's a hassle to have to keep adjusting these and put them back in your ear every 5 minutes.
