 Very good replacement for Apples standard headphones

| | See all Zorro2000's reviews (1)

Having read conflicting information on these headphones let me first confirm that these headphones do have :
(a) remote with 3 button clicker (volume up, volume down, generic 3rd button to pause/play/skip tracks/activate voice control on iphone); and
(b) a microphone (built into underside of remote)

Got these to replace the woeful Iphone 4 apple headphones. What an improvement. The bass on these headphones is like nothing I have ever heard on a set of bud's before. In fact my only criticism is that the bass may actually be too good. I had to adjust the sound settings on my Iphone4 to reduce the bass output as it was just too overpowering. Having made that adjustment all is now good. The headphones sit well in your ear.

The bud ends are slightly angled, not straight like other headphones I have used, so they grip really well when inserted into your ear. Once in they do a good job of blocking out external noise.

The only other issue I had was that the 3rd (middle) button on the headphones was very stiff for the first few days of use and didn't click when you pushed it. It seems to have now loosened itself off and now works very well.

Finally, the microphone works just as well as the Apple mic and is position just right on the headphone chord.

For under twenty quid I don't think there is another set of headphones with this features set out there that can touch the Sony's. Highly recommended.

My original Ipod shuffle earphones were adequate however, the volume control broke 2 weeks after the warranty ran out!
I didn't realise how cheap and tacky the Apple ones were, until I bought these Sony earphones. There is no comparsion.
The Sony earphones are a delight! .
They are so comfy to use & it's nice having the addtional ear pods, in various sizes, to cater for all ears.
The sound quality from my Ipod now feels enhanced somehow.
I bought these Sony earphones from Play.com largely based on the reviews of previous purchasers. Thanks for the guidance people, they are fab!

 Great earphones that last!

I've had these earphones for 10 months now (which is longer than my earphones usually last me). The sound quality is really good for the price range, good bass if that's your thing. The only thing is the wind noise, but it's not enough to overpower the audio. I would definitely buy these again! Great product!!

 Hurry Hurry GET IT! GET IT!

Works superbly for the Iphone4. I have been contemplating for this product for the last 3weeks if I will buy it or not. Because of its price, I was thinking it would be a poor quality, but I said to myself It is worth having a go but the earphone proved it was a right thing I've bought at a bargain price. The sound quality I can't fault it and no way you can beat the sound quality at this price. This earphone costs two-folds of its price(play) in the high street. This piece of SONY earphone is really superb. Now I will keep my old DENON because there is no mic and music control. The bonus for this product is having a pouch to keep when not in use and cable tidy to adjust cable length. Just can't stop saying SUPERB earphone.Many many thanks to Sony MDR EX38ip mwaaaahhh!!!

 Get for iTouch + iPhone 3GS

Great set of headphones, delivers amazing sound quality but shame the volume function does not work for iPhone 3G. Overall good set of replacement headphones for users that need headphones with remote like the iPod with mic vol control headphones.
