      Comments about Sony XBA-S65 Balanced Armature Sport Headphones (Black):

      I bought these headphones primarily for running and other active sports. The attributes I was looking for were good sound quality, secure attachment, and water-resistance. The sound quality is good for this price range. Accurate mid tones but bass is a bit lacking. The cinch loop system is a bit finicky to put on but is secure once in place and unobtrusive. The supplied accessories include a set of different size ear inserts. The closest match to my ears were adequate but not really comfortable and does not conform especially well to the ear canal. Other than these small fit issues, these headphones pretty much delivered on expectations.
