IN STORE various colours, black/grey black/orange black/green.

RRP nearly £30 apparently, though these appear online around £15 - £20 which seems more realistic. Amazon has cheaper list price but delivery brings the final price above a tenner.
Generally good reviews, but bear in mind these are inexpensive so please don't compare to high end stuff that costs an awful lot more!

I respect your comment, I just don't agree. I think the sound quality contradicts the price tag.

As with all of these 'in the ear' malarkies, they must be seated properly as there's a huge variation in tonal balance depending on how they sit in your ear. Also, it will very much depend on what they're plugged into. You can only get out what you put in. Best to test with a flat EQ I think.

Laptop, Iphone PC and Sony MP3 player nd they sound terrible in them all ,Bass is OK if you dont mind listening to muffled high notes,i ended up buying three pairs of Sony MDR EX35s form play when they were £4.99. Even now they are £14.99 the Sonys are better value,

A common opinion seems to be that the bigger driver can help to improve sound quality. The skull candy fellows are 11mm, whilst the sony ones are 9mm. However, larger driver can apparently mean lesser comfort too (I have read) through I'm not sure I follow the logic if there are changeable buds.

However, the sony's 'specs' appear to read better on paper and they are well received generally.
I can't comment on a direct comparison between the two as I only have the S.K. ones.

The sonys are back at £9.99 delivered from PLAY at the moment. There's some reviews there too.

So both can be the same price more or less, I guess it's down to personal taste.
