      I have only had them for a couple weeks and admittedly have never owned very nice headphones so I have little to compare them to, but I am very pleased with these. They have nice sound quality, much nicer than the apple earbuds. I use them with the 2nd generation ipod touch and the remote works very nicely. I haven't used the microphone much yet, but it seems good so far. Right now I have only good things to say about these

      I use these headphones mostly for running in the gym, and although the sound quality is pretty good for the price in my opinion, it's annoying that there's a background thumping from the cable hitting your chest....it completely ruined my running experience. Also the switch to pause/fast forward songs etc. is slightly bumpy and very inconvenient...definitely not as smooth and seamless as the apple headphones. They're good that they are white and have many earbuds but definitely not recommended for running.

      Comments about Sony MDR-EX38iP In-Ear Stereo Headphones (White):

      I was looking for an inexpensive pair of earbuds to listen to spoken word podcasts with and settled on these. My preferred phones, the Sony MDR-7506, are too bulky to travel about with. The MDR-EX38iP is small and obviously lightweight, so it fit the bill. The sound quality was not the greatest, however it was suitable for spoken word. Overall, these earbuds are a good value. They come with a small carrying pouch and additional earbud covers, just in case the attached covers don't fit your ears. They also have an inline volume adjuster and double as a mic for answering calls. Not a bad purchase. They'll suffice.

                  You get what you paying for. Sound experience ok. Background noise from the cable and remote completely ruins the sound quality during phone calls, super annoying. The remote it is definitely not built as nice and smooth as the apple headphones. Plus I hate the L shaped plug, my fault on that. I should have read the specs.

                      My Apple ear buds blew out the left and started to go in the right due too one drop of sweat. I have a 3rd gen ipod Shuffle (looks like a stick of gum) so I had to get ear phones with the controls to change songs. Most online were 40 bucks or more. B&H had the Sony MDR EX318ip for 30. NOW I can hear what I have been missing (bass, clear vocals) and they come with three sizes of ear plugs. My only minor complaint is the tactile feel of the center control.

                        These Sony headphones are excellent value. They are not inexpensive, however their sound is not either. Their sound response is pleasantly linear and they are very good for iPod and other players duty. I will say that they are almost as good as my Shure headphones which were 3 times as expensive. The only drawback is the volume control only works with certain new iPods, but this is not necessarily Sony's fault.

                          Of all the headphones I've owned for my ipod these are by far the best at a resonable price. My husband is majorly into stereo equipment and sound quality and since he knew I didn't want to spend tons on money on something like this he told me this was the best for the money. He was right. These work great for my cell phone too. Even more bang for my buck!

                            I have only had them for a couple weeks and admittedly have never owned very nice headphones so I have little to compare them to, but I am very pleased with these. They have nice sound quality, much nicer than the apple earbuds. I use them with the 2nd generation ipod touch and the remote works very nicely. I haven't used the microphone much yet, but it seems good so far. Right now I have only good things to say about these

                            Good sound if not for thumping

                            I use these headphones mostly for running in the gym, and although the sound quality is pretty good for the price in my opinion, it's annoying that there's a background thumping from the cable hitting your chest....it completely ruined my running experience. Also the switch to pause/fast forward songs etc. is slightly bumpy and very inconvenient...definitely not as smooth and seamless as the apple headphones. They're good that they are white and have many earbuds but definitely not recommended for running.

                            the mic works great when talking on the phone,push of a button and you listen to your tunes and the buds stay in.

                              I tried the Apple earphones with my IPod Shuffle, and spent half my time keeping them in my ears. These Sony earbuds work great. They stay in place while shooting basketball, and the better fit enhances the sound quality. Although I haven't tried other earbud upgrades, this one would be hard to beat.
