I am truely impressed with these headphones. They sound good. Bass is pretty deep. They are light in weight and feel very nice on the ears. They are a NO BRAINER for someone for a decent pair of phones at a really affordable price. The white color is also nice - stylish. The don't look cheap. The cord is long enough. 1 thing that is NOT a problem for me (but I can see where it could be for others) is that the jack that plugs into device is L' shaped. If your mp3 player has a case then u may have to remove. So happy with these they I am going to buy 3 more pair as early xmas gifts; the kids will love em :) Hope this helps.

I have a dozen headphones. I am still searching for the most comfortable and best, and I have not yet found it. THIS set of headphones is better than "average" in comfort and sound quality. I listen to music nearly all the time, and need to be able to isolate myself in comfort... and this does an adequate enough job. Listening while working on the computer (reading and writing), and late at night, when I listen to either music or news on the radio... I am still trying this out, and so far, so good. My search for the perfect pair of headphones shall continue, but, I think I will be using this set on the average a bit more than the other 10 pairs I have...

Better than buds

By HulaMike

from Hawaii

Comments about MDR-ZX100 Stereo Headphones (Red):

I hate sticking earbuds in my ears. So all I was after was a pair of cheap headphones to use instead. Little did I realize how nice these Sony's would be. Good sound quality on my iDevices. Don't work as well on audio gear and I don't really understand why; but for audio players, cellphones they are a great value.

My Christmas surprise

By Miltong

from New York

Comments about MDR-ZX100 Stereo Headphones (Red):

My headphones were damage and then lost. I needed a brand new pair when these headphones caught my interest. These headphones are very good for the price. I do not have a single complain about them. Solid durable plastic material. Lovely color to add style; because we need to have style in our lives. I definitely recommend these pair of headphones if price is an issue.

    I was looking for some headphones that I could use when I fly, but that weren't earbuds. These headphones certainly do the trick for such a low price. Now I can zone out on the plane, even when there's a crying baby. Ordering was quick and painless, and they were delivered in 2 days!

      I haven't had over the ear headphones in years and for the price these are pretty great. They're not Beats quality but who honestly wants to pay $ for headphones.

      Comments about MDR-ZX100 Stereo Headphones (Red):

      I use these Sony headphones every day at my desk. I wanted "cans" instead of earbuds, which are uncomfortable and low-quality (unless you pay a lot more than I would). The MDR-ZX100 'phones are comfortable and lightweight. I'm not an audiophile so I can't judge the audio qualities, but they sound fine to me, especially for under $ bucks. I see a lot of people wearing these same 'phones on the streets of NYC.I should note that with my first pair of MDR-ZX100's, purchased two years ago, the cover on the ear pads began to become torn and frayed, which didn't affect sound quality but looks unsightly. Well worth the price, though, and cheap enough to replace.

            This is not a high-end set of earphones. It is not even a medium set of earphones. However, for my application, as reference phones for a multiple mic studio, they are perfect. The talent can hear themselves and adjust the levels of music and their voice and they are happy. For this price, what more can you ask?

                    I'm currently working on a film project as a transcriber, so these headphones have definitely been useful for when I want to work at a public place (such as a coffee shop) where noise could be an issue with regular earbuds. These headphones do a great job of canceling out background noise and are very comfortable as well. I also like the collapsible construction - it makes them less bulky when transporting!
