Good: overall good sound
Bad: bit bassy
Comment: I've had a listen to them n-store with my iphone4 and found the sound is overall pleasing. Nothing harsh across the sonic spectrum. Meaning they do not sound harsh in the high-end and the mids won't harass your ears. Yet they do manage to deliver a fair amount of detail. The only minor point for me was they sounded a bit warm in the low-end. I think however others will find them just great because of this. Most people do love bass. I also compared them to the famous "beats by dr dré headphones" which were lying around in-store. And the sony's definitely sounded better. The 'beats' sounded even warmer in the low end and that is a big no-no for me. Conclusion: you can definitely listen to the sony's for an extended period of time without feeling fatigue. The warm bass-end isn't that a big issue. As I have gone back and had a 2nd listen today and played grand funk railroad's inside looking out from beginning to end that's 10 minutes long. 50 euros is still a bit pricey. So I thought I'd get a step down. Probably the ZX300. But I'm afraid built quality and probably sound delivery will suffer too much in comparison to the zx600. So still undecided.
3-star rating because of the warm bass, else I would've bought them immediately.
Good: Great sound quality. Not too expensive. Really comfortable. Looks cool.
Bad: High end not the best. Cymbals don't stand out clear.
Comment: Great pair of headphones for a reasonable price. Highly recommend it!! Especially if you have a budget.
Good: sound quality and build qualityfor price
Bad: none really
Comment: nice sounding cans for the price natural sound
Good: Quite good sound for good money, nice and decent look
Bad: Bass become crunchy at high volume, also after about an hour becomes uncomfortable
Comment: Quite good earphones, that i could recommend for beginners which want something better than usuall add-box headphones. Through I think Koss Porta pro is a better choice if you dont mind about open earphones(or that a lot of people have them) - a little bit better sound, fits better on the head and with better prize.
Good: Good audio quality, design, price
Bad: They are not comfortable at all. My head starts to hurt after about 30 minutes of use.
Comment: The sound quality is really good, but they are just not comfortable for me. Maybe my head is weird. I don't regret buying them though.

Comment: Bought these after som internet research. Wanted a sub €80 closed on ear headphones mainly for listening to music on my mobile while sitting in front of the computer at work.
For that purpose these headphones are superb ! Light and comfortable, with good sound quality and good, but not excessive isolation from noise around you.
Good: These headphones have great sound quality. They are fairly light, and even though they are an "on ear" not "around ear" headphone, they are extremely cofortable. Deep base and decent treble, an all around good pick if you want sound quality and style. Fairly affordable. I rate it a 9.5/10
Bad: dosn't fold, no case, but it is still a very great music enjoyment device
Comment: I would definently buy it, very cofortable and very stylish. Affordable, and also has amazing sound quality
Good: Looks great, sounds great
Comment: Great headphones, I bought from currys from £39.99 and they are worth every penny!
