    I was incredibly skeptical when I saw these headphones and at the price they were. I have always liked Sony's behind the neck headphones in the past though so I gave them a try. They are of high quality sound and decent build. They are more then good enough to get you through your daily travels and then some. They stay comfortable for a while are light weight. My only complaint is that when you rest them around your neck they are a tad snug. Comes with the territory though I think. Definitely would recommend these then most of the 30$ range phones out there.

    I use this unit at work. I love the behind-the-head design as well as its long cord. I use all work days and am pretty rough on it because I am up and down in my cube a lot. I would rate it higher were it not for the loosing of the cord end that goes into the unit. This is why I had to replace the other two. As soon as I received this unit, I secured this area with hot glue. Looks ok and I expect to get good service from the unit.

      Comments about Sony MDR-G45LP Behind-the-Neck Stereo Headphones:

      I don't like ear buds so supra-aural is the next best choice for compact light weight headphones. I use these when I sleep. Responsive at low volume levels, with a small loss of bass. These stay on my head all night even with some minor tossing and turning. When I turn them up and the bass hits hard, these headphones hang tight with good low frequency reproduction. For less than one Hamilton you will be amazed how much you get. Not everything is perfect, I have killed three sets in maybe five years. Consider I use them every night and I am sure I pull the cord in my sleep sometimes. The foam pads give out shortly (six months) but the drivers are contoured right for me and they don't hurt my ears even when my head is resting on them and the pillow.

          Comments about Sony MDR-G45LP Behind-the-Neck Stereo Headphones:

          Since I couldn't carry my big monitor headphones with me,I needed ones that are portable,stylish and have great stereo sound.I was lucky to find these.What a difference after tiny ones that came together with smartphone! MDR G45 fit perfectly in my side pocket,has one cord for convenience(what a relief after smartphone's ones).It has beautiful sound with very convincing bass and it is lightweight,I barely think of it while listening music for hours on the go.

                I had a previous version of the Sony behind the neck headphone. They were great, until I got them caught on the exercise machine in the gym. The wire broke and that was the end of that. This new headset is not only more comfortable, but the sound is super!
                Without a doubt, the best pair of stereo headphones for the best price online anywhere. The shipping was super fast, next day after the order and I liked that as well. Good products, great prices and super fast shipping..how can you go wrong? You can't!

                  I work as a painter and also work out on an elliptical machine. These 'phones stay in place unlike buds. Pretty decent sound quality for the price. I'm on my 4th pair over the last few years. I should mention I put a lot of wear and tear on them and do think they're durable.

                          We use these in church with the "Listen" brand of assisted hearing receivers. They are behind the neck so they are very versatile and are preferred by the women since they allow you to keep on your earrings and do not mess up the hair as much as over the head types.

                          I use these for listening to movies, etc on my computer, so the rest of the household doesn't have to listen. They're perfectly fine for that purpose. However, there is no way to make them fit more snugly, which I would need if I were going outside and running around.

                            I use this unit at work. I love the behind-the-head design as well as its long cord. I use all work days and am pretty rough on it because I am up and down in my cube a lot. I would rate it higher were it not for the loosing of the cord end that goes into the unit. This is why I had to replace the other two. As soon as I received this unit, I secured this area with hot glue. Looks ok and I expect to get good service from the unit.
