great sound for the price Dec 30, 2008
By G. Poirier
"educator, mountain biker, camper, traveler... fight on!"
I have some really good headphones and earphones. I own Ultimate Ears super-fi 5's and Grado SR80's. I don't know if that makes me an audiophile or not, but I *do* know what good ear/head phones sound like. These sound pretty good for the money. I use them when I work around the house or ride my bike. The UE's are too isolating and the Grado's too bulky to use other than lying down or sitting down. So, these are good to wear when active. They fit in my ear nicely and have a pretty even sound. Might be thin in the bass end of things for you, but I find they are more or less accurate with a bias toward the high end of things. They're good enough to let me know that Metallica's "Death Magnetic" has very bad sound quality. Devin Townsend sounds crisp if a bit thin in them. They have pretty good details for little earphones that cost under $20.
As another review notes, they are not "silent," "retractable" or "behind the neck." I have no idea why the product description says that. But, they are fine little 'phones for the money.

Good, for the price Nov 06, 2008
It's tough to go below 4 stars for a $10 price tag, but my complaint is that these aren't good for movement. If you're a runner, you'll need something else because these will fall right out of your ears. I've even had trouble keeping them in on some occasions when I'm merely walking.
Still, if you're just sitting in a car or on an airplane there's no reason you shouldn't get these. The only thing keeping this at 4 stars is the price/quality ratio, and as the price goes up my rating would go down.

Best Sound Quality and Convenience for $10 Jan 21, 2010
By W. R. Russell Jr.
"Lean Gator MBA"
I probably own a half dozen pairs of these and if you look in my laptop bag, gym bag, or weekend bag, you'll find it's little case in there. There's a pair of E828s next to the laptop I'm typing this review on, there's another pair in the armrest of my truck. Why? Because earbuds should be convenient, ready, and a joy to use, not wadded, tangled and crushed.
I love listening to music; anywhere and anytime the mood strikes me and I have a variety of other earbuds and headphones from the big names, but I keep coming back to these little guys. First off, they sound terrific, especially considering the price and that they only weigh 6g. The mids and trebles are crisp, not shrill or crackly and the bass is very good from a 16mm driver...nice and tight, not boomy and sloppy like some 'bass enhanced' juvenile models. Secondly, I dislike things either in or pressing on my ears. These sit comfortably right at the opening. Thirdly, if someone is at the door, calling my name, or asking me a question, I actually want to hear it. Lastly, at <$10 I'm not freaked out when a cat chews on one, or someone drops the grocery bag of canned goods on it. My super expensive stuff stays in the living room...these little guys travel the rest of the earth with me.
I would keep buying these for the sound, but the great little case cinches the deal.
Bonus tip: Cats love the taste of the cord, so when you first open a pair of these (or any rubbery cord phones) rub a drop of dish soap along the length of the cord (not the earpiece!) with your fingertips and let it dry...you'll never notice, but the cats will leave it alone!

Wind up storage case, not retractable Dec 13, 2008
The product title is more than a little misleading. I was expecting a spring loaded retractable cord that takes the slack out of the cord while using them, and winds up the cord for storage. What you get is a convenient wind up case for storing the buds. It works well, just not what I expected. The product packaging doesn't contain any of the following words: Retractable, Silent, Behind the Neck. Sony refers to this product as having a Convenient Winding Case. Somebody just made up the amazon product title, not good.

Uncomfortable, decent sound. Feb 02, 2011
I purchased these as a back-up pair of earbuds, and so I was looking for something inexpensive that had good sound for the price. These fit the bill in some ways, but I wouldn't recommend them for frequent use.
These have a number of pros: the sound (for the price) is quite good. The bass is not as deep and three dimensional as other earbuds, but they don't require high volumes to bring out the sound, either. Unlike some more expensive earbuds I've had, the cord is a reasonable thickness, and does not frequently crackle from movement or static electricity (this is compared to others, at least). For the most part, I would be happy using these most of the time, if it weren't for the cons.
The cons are have to do with comfort. These are made of hard plastic, without any give. I never appreciated how important the thin, rubberized ring around the Apple earbuds are until I wore these for a little while. Without any flexibility, the shape of the earbuds becomes much more important--unless they fit exactly, they will be uncomfortable. This brings up a second problem: the shape of these earbuds. They are not circular, like the Apple earbuds. Instead, they have made them to have a slight corner on one side (imagine taking a circle, quartering it, and stretching out one quarter to be more square). This, I think, was to help with sound by covering the ear canal better. However, added with the unusual thickness of the stem that meets the wire, makes these a bit too large to fit into an ear comfortably (in my ear, at least). I'm not Prince Charles, but I'm a guy with decent sized ears, and these feel like they are pulling and poking my ears when they are in. The best analogy I can make is this: the materials and design remind me of the earbuds you get from airlines for in-flight entertainment (the sound is better, of course). For some, I'm guessing these will fit with no problem. But if they don't fit exactly, the materials that they used to make them will render them painful to wear really quickly.
Sony seems to make the same earbud in black with a silver highlight. Looking at the reviews for that version, it seems the comfort issue is pretty common. I'm not sure whether Sony makes a better designed earbud at this price point, but I would definitely recommend spending a little bit more to get a better product.
