Good sound quality, a little too tight for adults with "big" heads
on June 27, 2008
This headphone sounds good (Sony's headphones, even the under-$20 models, almost always give really nice sound), and the build quality is as good as any I've seen for this price. The behind-the-head band and ear loops hold the phones very securely and allow you to wear a hat. However, I found the band a little on the small side, like it would fit a child better than an adult. The ear loops could also be a problem for people who wear eyeglasses. I have worn these phones for about 2 hours at a stretch and didn't find them to be intolerably uncomfortable, but for a really long day, 6 hours or more, they might chafe your ears too much. If it weren't for the too-tight fit, I'd rate them 5-stars. I am using them with a Motorola cell phone (to listen to MP3's), and sound quality is very good, loudness is about right.
