The sound is decent but nothing special. Comes with an extension cable that on mine did not work but i did not check the extension until after i through the packaging away. For the money they are average.
Use it on for my phone to listen music.

I had a pair of these that i had purchased a few years back without really testing too many others. They were mostly used for the gym, so they got beat around in my gym bag, then had to stay on while running and moving quite a bit. 5/4 years, it seemed i had blown one of the speakers and it was time for them to go. That’s when i started to appreciate what i had found. I’ve gone through many pairs of clip-on headphones trying to find ones that would serve me this well, and everything just fell short. The braided cord is the most durable, resilient cord i’ve ever had. The short length is the greatest asset to anyone that works out with an ipod in an arm band. It’s just long enough to allow full range of movement without ever getting caught on things or in your own way. Not to mention avoiding the weight of the cable swinging back and forth pulling one or the other of the earphones right off your head.
These sony mdr headphones are really great and the sound quality is amazing really loud very clear quality i would definitely recommend this seller’s products.
I don’t know how many head/earphones i have gone through over the years. Most of them have been crappy due to sound and comfort level (more like, lack thereof). I don’t like sticking earplugs into my ears because they end up getting to be uncomfortable after a certain amount of time and they end up getting covered in earwax. Besides lack of comfort, earplugs have a tendency to blow out in one ear. There is nothing worse than listening to my music on my portable cd player with only one earplug working. The same can be said about headphones too. Another quality about headphones i don’t care for is wearing that annoying plastic arch that holds the headphones together. At least with earplugs, i can easilyi slip the devices over my earlobes. Several months ago, i was perusing the headphones aisle at target when i came upon the sony mdr-q55sl. It had the same properties in both earplugs and headphones i was looking for: ability to slip the headphones around my earlobes and not having to stick two pieces of plastic into my ears.
Sony MDR-Q55SL Clip-on Headphones (Silver) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) : I will be buying my third pair soon. First pair lasted 2-3 years as did the second. I mistakenly bought jaybirds and they were awful. If you have trouble with ear buds and have ever growing ears like i do these headphones are the best.
J’ai ce type de casque depuis 7 ou 8 ans et je ne m’en passe plus. C’est mon troisième casque (les autres ne sont pas cassés, ils sont juste usés) bonne qualité d’écoute, confort et très pratique. Je recommande ces casques à tout mon entourage et également à vous.
I was looking for something to replace the standard ipod headphones. I like the style and price of these. The audio quality seemed like it would be pretty good too. After receiving the headphones from amazon i was disappointed in two ways. I thought the cord would be almost white. It’s actually silver, even a little glitter-y. Second was the level of bass — it’s very high. I like high bass for some tracks, but not all. That’s what i use the equalizer for. But even when i turn the equalizer off on my ipod, the bass is still almost too strong. I’m not sure how much i’ll end up using these headphones. I thought it was funny how on the packaging sony says ‘for the house and trance lifestyle. I think i prefer the sony mdr-ex51lp fontopia headphones. Great sound quality, but not busting my eardrums with bass.
If you wear headphones as often as me, comfort is the most important thing. My favorite pair of headphones for the past few years have been the panasonic clip-on earphones. But they fail after a few years because of lack of design quality; they are not built to last. These ones are not quite as comfortable, but they are still pretty comfortable. Their design quality, however, is top notch. I feel like these will last 20 years. And the sound quality is better than the panasonic clip on ear phones as well. These are overall my new favorite headphones.
Sony has come out with a few different versions of these headphones. I know that one of them specializes in rap, another in techno, and another in jazz. These headphones specifically specialize in hard house/techno music. I tested this pair thouroughly and all i can say is that these are possibly the best sounding headphones in the price range that are intended for portable use. As far as prices go for portable headphones, this is at the top of the charts. I payed a substantial amount of money for these headphones, but it was all worth the money. The best part of these headphones are the portability, to start. The cable is quite short so there is no dealing with miles and miles of extra cable that you have to put in your pocket. I am short – being at 5 feet 6 inches, and i found the length just perfect for me. I found that these headphones fit perfectly in my pocket – that’s usefull if you are like me and listen to your music on the go or at school. And with this small form-factor, you also get incredible sound. Channeling of the sound is pretty good with these phones, usually channeling to the correct side with good accuracy.
I bought these to game with since i care more about my ‘do than i do amazing quality ambient noises, and the earbud style never ever fits me right. They’re comfortable at first, don’t slide around or pull away at all if you get the clamp on right, but tends to make you sore after a few hours. Sound isn’t normal headphone or earbud quality to be sure, but it’s got bass. That’s pretty unique among clip headphones. Downside is how fragile the stupid things are. I would never try to sleep with these on for fear of rolling on top of them.
You know, i do like these headphones, and the build quality and styling is nice, but these really do not have the solid bass quality that i was led to believe that they were capable of. Now, this could be for a number of reasons, i understand that – so far, i have only experimented with these headphones and my nokia lumia 1020 smartphone (with eq settings tweaked) – i suppose that i should also try it with my notebooks, laptops, tablets, etc,. And really give these headphones a run for the money. All in all, you know, if you are just looking for a decent set of (reasonably inexpensive) over_the_ear headphones to replace an older set, then these are certainly worth looking into. Otherwise, if you want a really good one-in-a-lifetime sort of headphones – well, then there are always the sennheiser and koss, uher, etc. These sony headphones are actually very easy to keep on for long periods of time – and, i also like the fact that sony included a few accessories for free in the package, that they really did not have to – for example – a 1-meter male-female silver braided extension cord, just in case you wanted to get longer than the existing 1. 5-meter (i think) attached cable – and at least my packet (which was brand new, never opened) even contained a double (y-splitter) – adapter, so you could share your 1/8′ headphone jack with a friend. Sony always does these nice ‘little touches’ – sure, their equipment costs more than the bargain-basement stuff coming out of certain parts asia, but you know, they really do try to stand out among the run of the mill items, usually.
I have a hard time trying to find really good headphones to use while in the gym. The in-ear type of headphones never stay in my ear (i dont know if i have abnormal shaped ears or what). After going some research, these looked promising. First, you will notice the abnormal shape of the clipping mechanism. And after wearing them, i have no idea why the went with this shape. They do not stay clipped securely to your ear. And while working out and developing a little but of sweat, they wanna just slip right off of my ear. Also, after wearing them for a while, that weird shaped clipping mechanism puts a pressure on your ear and is uncomfortable.
If you’re like me and hate earbuds and over-the-ear headphones, these are perfect. These aren’t nearly as comfy as the mdr-q22lp or -q23 models, but they’re certainly easier to find and more reasonably priced. I prefer the spring-hinged versions, as i feel they fit more snugly and securely. The cord is nylon-braided, so it’s pretty durable; plus the style is easy to store. The sound quality isn’t incredible, but that’s not my biggest priority. I just want comfortable, portable headphones, and these work just fine.
I bought these for an upcoming trip which hasn’t yet occurred however, i’ve worn them in my house with the tv volume on. The noise cancelling is probably not as good as traditional headphones but, these are pretty good.
This headphones is a more expensive unit compared with other comparable products. Among the headphones that i have tried so far, this one definitely sounds different. The frequency response is rather flat, meaning the bass and the treble do not get boosted as much. I think over the years my ears got so used to bass/treble boost that i first felt strange listening music thru this headphone; music sounded airier. Also, the sounds get dispersed across the left and right better than the other cheaper headphones. This makes possible to hear the details of each sound element better. I was actually amazed how much detail i was missing with other headphones. With a bit of boost, the bass sounds and subtle detail of sound can blow you away.
A little difficult to get on ears. However, i do have small ears (no, really).
As far as headphones are concerned though, these are pretty mediocre (average) and for the price, they’re overpriced. You can get some skullcandys that sound marginally better for $10 more. If you just want some cool looking phones that look like the ones the main character from persona 3 wears get these.
I love these kind of headphones. I’ve gotten like 5 of them over the past 7 years (one for work, one for home, one for travel, others as replacements). All of them still work, though the cushioning gets broken up after a while. I should figure out how to get cheap replacements for those.
For the size and shape, the sound quality is decent. They are not meant to cancel out noise, and that is partially why i buy them. I use them for walking around and work so i like to be somewhat aware of my surroundings. I especially got them for workouts and was trying to save money that i would have spent on the mdr-q68lw. So here’s the pros and cons. Pros:once you get them on, they will stay on. Stay aware of your surroundings. Easy to wear when not in use. Cons:these can be a real honeybadger to get on, and they are not the most comfortable i’ve had.
This headset sounds good, but the cord is very short. An extender cable is included, but it doesn’t connect tightly enough to keep it from coming loose all the time. I like the previous version much better with a non-tangle cord that was long enough not to need an extender. I love the adjustable ear hook and the on-ear design. This set seems to me to be a cheap version of its predicessor, but it costs more.
I am rebuying a pair of these headphones. ) i have tried 3 times, within the same price bracket, to replace my current pair and these are so far superior than the newer models available. As mentioned by another reviewer, the cord isn’t just a piece of plastic, so it’s longevity was relatively amazing. The clip-on ear pieces worked well for me, (but that’s coming from someone that those ipod earphones fall right out. ) i guess it just depends on the shape, not size, of your ears. I am buying another pair because i know i can rely on them.
