Great value headphones
I bought these to replace a cheap set of Bluetooth in-ear headphones to listen to my iPad at night as not to disturb the wife while she watches her trashy reality TV shows.
The Good: Really decent sound quality. I listen to some intricate heavy metal sometimes and I can hear the subtleties and appreciate the music better with the headphones. For not being the ANC type, I don’t need to buy a set because the sound quality is that good. They are also small enough to fit in a small bag for flights, battery lasts for days (20+ Hours is claimed and...I can’t dispute that) and seem durable enough to last a while. The not-so-good: They would probably fall off if you decided to go for a vigorous jog, but walking and gym work would be okay. Not being ANC headphones, if like me you like to listen to Slayer really loud, just be aware so will the people around you in close proximity. Overall: very happy with the purchase, no regret and recommend. Sure, there are heaps of more expensive sets out there that probably have greater sound quality, but for the price ($79.00 at Big W) you can’t go wrong if you need something decent.

Fine Technology but bad design
I bought these to replace my lost Sony ch500 headphones which I loved. The headband and fit on these is no good. I figure they have the same electrical guts as the ch500 which were great - easy connectivity, battery indicator, clear sound - but the size of the actual headphone and the adjustable headband is just a massive misstep for Sony in terms of design. You just cant get them to sit right and they look odd when you finally get them in a position that's semi-comfortable. I paid under $50 for them and still use them for my "at home headphones", so I guess they suit my purpose but I should've checked them out in person before buying them online.
