Bottom Line:   
i was extremely dissappointed with these things. for some reason i expected that in-ear headphones could provide better sound than they do. i had read some good stuff about these (even that they were the best in-ears for under $100) and so i got them for my new mp3 player and they were extremely dissappointing. bass response is nil. null. nada. zilch. and when you actually boost your bass on whatever player to max, over even very low volumes it distorts horribly. midrange response was very nice, treble response a little tin-y and strong but good in those ranges at least. putting the foam on made them sound much worse. muffled and crappy and bad. as a comparison, i tryed out my 4 year old $15 panasonic open ear headphones on the same song and they sounded much, much, MUCH better.

Bottom Line:   
Well balanced, affordable, durable. I've used earbuds for more than 10 years and have owned at least 10 different pairs, mostly Sony. I've also tried many more in stores etc. The 848s has to be used with the pads to add warmth to the sound and that makes it a well balanced pair and as far as I'm concerned best in it's proce range.

Bottom Line:   
5 years use out of last pair - beats cheaper ones hands down - awesome sound, rich with clean bass & mid/treble.

Very comfortable, and don't annoy the hell out of fellow commuters with "leakage"!!
