Best Earphones EVER!

I love these earphones, I'm really rough so I've gone through about 3 of these in about 5 years so it's not too bad but what I love about them is they are cheap but are great quality! The main reason mine would break is I would hit it on the surface, drop it on the floor and toss them around. If you didn't do all those things I would probably have the same pair but even though i'm rough and they break on me, I still buy the same model because it's just that good! :D

Sound Quality
The sounds is Epic! I love how it's like you just entered the Imax theater and it's right in your ears! I've always love the sound on these earphones, since no matter how low the original song is this makes it sounds right next to you as opposed to far away and hardly able to enjoy the music :D

Comfort
These are made of plastic and not the soft squishy kind, but I love it more since I love to listen to music for hours and this hangs on your ear, not shoved in your ear. I would listen to music and after a few songs i would pause it and do something then i would be like " where are my earphones?" I would follow the cord on my computer and pull on it then one ear would pull out and i was like "oh snap it's on my ear already lol"

Design
It's not the coolest looking but it's the best design ever! It's so easy to pull one ear off if you need to talk to someone, but with others it can be a total hassle and almost always ends up pulling off the other ear and falling to the floor.

Durability
I'm really rough with my earphones so it doesn't last super long with me but if you are more gentle this would probably be more durable :D

I purchased the Sony MDR J10's as a workout headphones for the gym. I figured based on the design these headphones would stay in my ear when I was running or lifting weights. The sound of these phones is nothing spectacular, but I just needed something to get by until I found a permanent headphone solution. These headphones do stay on your ears, but the hard plastic does pinch the top of my ears. I figured this wouldn't be an issue considering how light these headphones are, but I was wrong. Despite staying on my ears the speakers constantly came out of my ear. With every little movement the speakers slowly crept out of my ear leaving me with the faint sound of music. Even with all of these drawbacks I kept using these headphones for the next couple of weeks until the right ear went out. Then the left ear went out the following day. I know these headphones aren't expensive, but I thought they would be able to last a couple of months before breaking down.

The Sony MDR-J10 Headphones

By 

from USA

Comments about Sony MDR-J10 Headphones:

In my opinion, these headphones are the best on the market. They are exceptional not only in quality, but in comfort. They are the perfect size and they fit comfortably over your ears. You do not have to fiddle with them trying to get them inside of your ears. They are adjustable to allow just the right amount of room to move around with. Further, they are light weight and easy to use.

Sound Quality
The sound quality is excellent. I have bought several of these headphones because of the comfort and perfect sound quality. You never have to worry about one side not being audible or uneven in sound.

Comfort
As stated, these headphones are extremely comfortable and easily fit over your ears. You will never accidentally hit your eardrums with these. The fit perfectly over your ear and you do not have to fiddle with them to force them to fit or make sure the do not fall out, and they don't squish your ears like other headphones.

Design
It has a sleek and slim design that looks great, and they can be worn discreetly. Also the design is excellent for running or working out because it doesn't tangle or fall out of your ears.

Durability
They are very durable.

Decent Headphones

By 

from Kansas City, Missouri

Comments about Sony MDR-J10 Headphones:

These are great and extremely durable head phones. They can be uncomfortable sometimes after long periods of use, but for what I use them for, watching videos on YouTube they work well. They have a wonderful sound to them and great for listening to music on. The pair I have, have lasted me well over two years, and I plan on buying them again in the near future when needed.

Sound Quality
Sound quality is decent can always hear very well.

Comfort
If I wear them too long they can irritate my ear a bit, but using them for short periods of time I have no problem with them as far as comfort is concerned. I just wish that they came some how cushioned so they wouldn't bother my earlobes as much.

Design
I love how they made them so that they curve around and sit on the ear, other ear buds pop out of the ear so easily, so this is part of the reason I purchased them to begin with to avoid them falling out.

Durability
Extremely durable my pair has lasted me over two years now, and hopefully more to come.

They'll do the job as long as you need them.

Comments about Sony MDR-J10 Headphones:

I run a lot, and these are perfect for running. I always felt uncomfortable with earbuds, because I always thought they were about to fall out. That's why I love the fact that these wrap around the ear. They always stay in place, even when I'm bounding up hills. They also deal well with moisture (yes, I sweat when I run). They are very comfortable to wear, even for long periods. I never felt any irritation either from the ear buds themselves or the wraps. I've gone through a few pairs of these over the years, they do tend to wear out after two years or so, but the price is right, so this hasn't stopped me from going with them time and again (especially considering the punishment I put them through). The sound quality is fine, especially considering the price. They will not give you the studio-quality sound of high-end headphones, so if that's what you're looking for you should look elsewhere. However, at no point during my time using these have I felt like I'm missing out on the sound I want. Go with these, they're solid headphones at a great price.

Built cheap but work okay.

By 

from Springdale, UT

Comments about Sony MDR-J10 Headphones:

I don't really like the ear clip.It should be adjustable.It's not going to fit all ear sizes.The buds themselves are the right size.They stay put and don't fall out or aren't too big like a lot of cheap earbuds tend to be.They come in a lot of different colors so there's a lot to choose from there.The ear clip also makes them kind of bulky and can start to hurt your ear if you leave them on too long.The plastic they're made with is kind of cheap.I do like the sound they produce though.Nice bass and block outside noise well.

Comments about Sony MDR-J10 Headphones:

These are very easy to fit into the ears, even when running or doing exercise. They were inexpensive so I thought they might not be that good but they exceeded my expectations. The price was really inexpensive compared to all the others. The sound quality is fabulous. They are lightweight and comfortable.

Good cheap headphones for those who don't like ear buds.

By 

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Sony MDR-J10 Headphones:

These are a good cheap headphone for those who don't like ear buds. I can't keep use ear buds because of the shape of my ear, and these are a very comfortable alternative. The sound quality is acceptable, but the comfort level is high for me. They do break fairly quickly, but are a good cheap alternative for working out, travel or commuting if you don't mind buying a new pair each year. If they get lost, you aren't out much money.

A great replacement for inexpesnive head phones

By 

from Delaware, OH

Comments about Sony MDR-J10 Headphones:

I watch a lot of movies on my laptop while my family plays video games. I use these head phones to drown out their noise and listen to my movie. They are very comfortable to wear for several hours with out taking them off. And they fit snugly to help drown out back ground noise. For the price you can't go wrong. I have been using mine for over 2 years now and I still love them as the day I opened the package

Sound Quality
The sounds is excellent and I don't have the break off you get with the super cheap headphones

Comfort
I wear them for hours at a time with out them rubbing my ears or making them red and irritated. I think they are very comfortable

Design
I like these as being over the ear so as I turn my head they don't pop out.

Durability
They have lasted several years so far, and will continue to use them

Good headphones for the price

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony MDR-J10 Headphones:

I know that there are probably better headphones but for the price, these suited my needs. I use them to connect to my Ipod device while I work out so they have been fine. The sound quality is pretty good and they fit over my ears fine. Sometimes the cord gets tangled up but am able to get it undone without a problem. Also, I have had this same set for a long time so they appear to be pretty durable since I use them regularly. As a result, I would recommend them for those who want a basic headphone at a good price.

Sound Quality
Sounds clear with Ipod.

Comfort
Okay if you like wearing them behind ears.

Design
Works for me, except cord gets tangled at times.

Durability
Had same set for several years and use regularly.
