Sony MDREX38iP/BLK EX Earbud with iPod Remote...
Predictably, the thin wire caused one side to stop working completely in just a few months of light use. Of note, BlueProton is going to require me to ship the headphones to them ($) and then charges $6 to process the warranty claim. At that price you could buy another pair. If these headphones were labeled as disposable that would be fine, but they aren't. After contacting Sony's warranty department, even though they made the headphones if it wasn't bought from their actual online store their rep. told me they will not process a warranty. Had the seller been Amazon, they claim Amazon would have to honor the warranty. Crazy. I really cannot support a company with that bad of customer service given all the competition. Take your business elsewhere!
I am writing a five star review knowing that there is a chance these may not hold up. The wires for the headphones and remote are really thin. With that in mind, overall I must say I think they are impressive in value.
Comfortable standard earbuds, with standard sizes included (small/medium/large)
Remote that works great with iOS. Volume up/down, and standard universal remote button (start/stop).
Microphone seems to work without any complaints from the other side of the call.
You won't get any where near this good of sound and features for the price with other headphones I could find on Amazon.
Worried about the extremely thin wires not holding up.
Edit 2017-11-03: So the earpad plug became more rubbery which is good (I guess oil from ear as disgusting as it sounds blended with the material to make it more rubbery?). However, still not satisfied with the sound quality. It seems more low end heavy and bass is not tight. Something definitely feels off with the sound balance.
Edit 2018-01-13: I'm boosting the stars to 4 stars, this earphone sounds better than most others I've tried. Although MDR-EX58V is the best I've heard in Sony, this is also good compared to others.
