Thanks, ordered a pair.

Normally use in ear, but truth be told prefer headphones if i'm in the Gym...........

Great Find and thanks for posting £4.99 can't go wrong!

Cord length is a bonus too, there's nothing worse than being seen playing with your shorts stuffing a 1.5 metre cord down them when your opposite a hottie in the gym :) Or is that just me?
#3
I have a biger pair of Sony's which I really like but just a shade too big for using in gym - gona get a pair of these cos at a fiver you just can't go wrong :)
#4
I bought these a while back from Amazon as they were slighly cheaper than play at the time, and they're great.

I use them in the gym and with their short lead they are ideal to use with my shuffle clipped to my t-shirt without loads of spare cable to tuck away. Hot at a fiver!

Good Price ...Hot.....:thumbsup:

Just ordered a pair for work. I use the old fashioned 'in ear' headphones for work but they tend to fall out. These are surely worth a bash. Thanks!

This " stability tip" does not stick in your ear canal does it ?

I can't live with the type of earphones that block off your ear canal and amplifies every rub of your clothing.

EDIT....
Ooh there is a better picture here
They look a bit weird witht the bit that sticks in your ear

Don't forget these only have a 60 cm cable as they are designed for use with a remote commander. Will that reach your comp ok?

pretty damn good deal...hotted and repped!

Good Price But!

Hot price, probably the best pair of headphones I've ever owned. Thought I had a bargain when I got them in HMV's sale for a tenner a few months back.

Really strong sound, lightweight with a nice case for them and they stick on your ears with no problems. Only slight negative I have is that if I wear them for too long at a time then they can make my ears ache a little bit.
#12
They have good reviews and are only £5 so I've ordered some. Thanks for the heads up, heat added.
#13
Heat/Rep given! :thumbsup:

Had my eye on a pair of Sennheiser PMX80 Sport II in-ear headphones for running but at a fiver it would be rude not to try these Sony's out first before parting with the £25 for the Senny's.

Thanks.

Cheekster.

..indeed.
#15
hows the sound quality to these those, are they any good as the MDR-EX series at all?
#16
Much better, I found with those you had to position them correctly which wasn't always easy to achieve, with these though you just stick them over your head and you're good to go.
#17
very good headphones for gym/ running etc. Sound isn't brilliant and I am always paranoid that everybody else on the train can hear some of what i am listening to (the annoying trebble only).

That said £4.99, bargain. I'm buying another pair so when I break my existing ones I can just open these.
#18
Are these suitable for children. My 10 year old cannot use the in-ear headphones, and I thought these might be better. Will they??

Oh yes, forgot that came in the box. Think my extensiion went in the bin :oops:

Just want to let everyone know that these are terrible headphones.

There's no insulation and all the sound comes out like it's some kind of loudspeaker.
On each side, there's a knob that goes into your ear, but it's incredibly uncomfortable as the band is tight and not very elastic. Wore it for a two hours, ear ached for two days.

There are tons of reviews on this complaining about it being uncomfortable and lacking insulation so I'm sure it's not just me.

The gold plated extension is pretty long and handy though. I guess.

Got mine a couple of days ago. Great for out and about on the mountain bike, and don't even budge off my head during squash!

Am just updating people with my review FWIW.

FIrst comfort, I found them reasonably comfortable on the short 30mins train journey I just tested them out on.
Fit wise, they sit well around the head and over the ears, and I suspect that for running these would be a great solution ( which I have yet to test). I have medium to large ears so the cord hooks over them weel. The short cord length works nicely well with my Sansa Clip, but also has a handy cable extension and a cleverly design lapel clip that I will use on other headphones.

However, the sound quality is exceptionally poor (although for sports it would just about pass). The speakers are lacking both clarity and bass, that you feel the urge to turn up the volume just to reintroduce these missing frequencies
This isnt just bad for yourself, but also your fellow commuters/passersby, as these phones also leak sound like nobody's business and when I used them on the train I became aware that others around me were sharing the poor sounds quality.

Overall I view these as a bad purchase and would recommend people to steer well clear unless they are only after a gold plated headphone extension fro £4.99. YMMV of course.
