Pros

  • +

    Interchangeable buds and ear hooks

  • +

    weighty, clear sound

Cons

  • -

    Can sound a touch bright at the top

These lightweight Sonys have interchangeable buds and ear hooks to ensure anyone can achieve a solid, comfortable fit.

The fixed cord is 0.6m – great for those using an armband sleeve for their MP3 player – but there's also an extension cable.

In action they're weighty and clear, if a touch bright at the top.
