      I bought these to replace my older Sony earbuds on which one side died suddenly over a year after the active use. I was looking for the same pair as I loved the sound quality, and these are the newer version. The sound is excellent, nice and crisp highs, definitely feel the bass. I use these with my iPhone for all my conversations and also for music listening, sometimes while running. My volume is usually set one or two notches bellow the highest, and sometimes on max when I'm outside and there is a lot of traffic noise that I want to block out. I like my music loud but not explosively loud. I don't think these have the capacity to blow your brains out, so not good if that's what you're looking for. For anything else they are great. They also don't spill the noise so people around me can't hear my music, which I wish was the case with many other people on the subway. I like the convenience of the volume/play control on the microphone as it allowes me to pocket my phone and still have the volume control and ability to answer the call. I belive that the microphone captures well as people I talk to don't complain about how I sound. It does pickup the surrounding noise though, so if I'm out on the street with the traffic I'll hold the mic closer to my mouth. Overall, these are great for the price, and beyond.

      I like the soft silicone cups in multiple sizes, and the sound is good. I'm replacing older model Sony in-ear headphones that lasted a long time (8 years) before one side went out. I couldn't give them more stars though because they came with an "L" shaped plug which doesn't work for the way I use them. All the other headphones state when they have an "L" shaped plug and these say "standard" plug in the B&H product description.

        These are surpisingly good for the price. I can't say for sure how long they'll last but they do the job well for someone who usually buys $80 price range headphones.

              These headphones have no bass tone to them at all and the treble is way to high. My stock iphone headphones have better sound quality.

              However, they do fit in-ear very nicely and come with 3 differnt size fittings. The volume control on headphone is nice too.

              I wouldn't buy them again.

                        I have bought multiple pairs of this model over the past 4 years. I use them frequently and they generally last me at least a year before I ruin them. I believe only one pair has been replaced due to sound problems in one ear bud.

                              Needed a set of headphones to replace my terrific HF-2's that I slammed in the car door. Am constantly traveling so need a hands free, but also listen to a lot of music. These had decent reviews and were cheap so I tried them. They are fine for calls. Microphone is fine, call clarity is good. Even the mids and bass are OK for music. But there is so much sibilance in the highs that they are almost unlistenable. But, for the price, what can I expect?

                                  I haven't used these a lot yet but they sound good enough for use with my iPhone. I don't generally care for in-ear headphones but these seem to fall out less than usual. I haven't used then in conversation much, only for music, but the my friends thus far seem to hear me well enough.

                                        Like most people, I've tried dozens of different headphones for use with my smart phones. Even though these have wires, they're easy to use, transmit and receive clearly, and are very comfortable when sleeping. These are the best I've tried. I'm hooked.

                                          I bought these to replace my older Sony earbuds on which one side died suddenly over a year after the active use. I was looking for the same pair as I loved the sound quality, and these are the newer version. The sound is excellent, nice and crisp highs, definitely feel the bass. I use these with my iPhone for all my conversations and also for music listening, sometimes while running. My volume is usually set one or two notches bellow the highest, and sometimes on max when I'm outside and there is a lot of traffic noise that I want to block out. I like my music loud but not explosively loud. I don't think these have the capacity to blow your brains out, so not good if that's what you're looking for. For anything else they are great. They also don't spill the noise so people around me can't hear my music, which I wish was the case with many other people on the subway. I like the convenience of the volume/play control on the microphone as it allowes me to pocket my phone and still have the volume control and ability to answer the call. I belive that the microphone captures well as people I talk to don't complain about how I sound. It does pickup the surrounding noise though, so if I'm out on the street with the traffic I'll hold the mic closer to my mouth. Overall, these are great for the price, and beyond.

                                          The price on the headphones were closer to the inexpensive range. But if you plan to use these headphones for long periods of time such as more than an hour then you should opt to pay for better ones. They start hurting after more than an hour and had to let my ear rest.

                                          I bought the DR-EX12iP In-Ear Stereo Headphones with Mic and Remote (Black) from Sony to provide high-quality audio with my Nokia cellphone while walking. Despite both use the standard 3.5mm plug it do not provides compatibility. I tested it with the Ipod and I do not listen any difference from others I have bought previously.

                                            I bought these to listen to my IPod. They sound great and are a great price. The only thing is if you touch the cord going to the ear buds or make any movement, you'll hear some sound in the earbuds. Not a big deal, and I think it may be common with these types of headphones. Overall, I really like them.

                                              The product is good, in general, but, to me, what makes a earphone a great earphone is the power of its bass.
                                              But, for the price, it is a good earphone. Maybe, if a want a similar earphone with a great bass power, I should pay a little bit more.
                                              I liked the colours, either, and the fact that it has a remote and mic.
