My usual workout earphones broke, so I just got these and I was testing them out. (got them from a Future Shop in Toronto)
First impression: great value.
I was a bit hesitant to buy these since they weren't even $10, but I really could spend some time with these earphones. I also own Sennheiser CX-300 II as well.
One thing that Sennheiser CX-300 II and this Sony have in common is their powerful bass. However, in comparison to the Sennheiser (which costs 10x more), the Sony MDR-E818LP... (read more)

These Sony MDR-E818LP headphones are comfortable and do not fall out of my ears like other ear buds I have used. They have great sound, probably the best out of any headphones I've used. They are able to pick up bass sounds without just sounding like bad vibrations in your ears. They lasted for a few years while other headsets have only lasted me a few months and I use my headphones at least 3 days out of every week. My last pair stopped working in my left ear, although they did last for a... (read more)

I've had these Sony MDR-E818LP earphones since May 2005 and they still work perfectly - they've had their rattle in the left-earphone moments but with the amount of bass I've put through these I'm surprised they still work at all! To get the best out of them though you need a good quality music player, myself, I've had a Sony Ericsson W550i Walkman phone and currently have a Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot k800i which both have superb mp3 players. Previously I've had a set of 'apparently' superior... (read more)

I have a similar pair of headphones that came with my mp3 player - I was happy with them until I bought some E818's - what a difference! Produces better sound at lower volume level. (read more)

I bought my Sony MDR-E818LP headphones as a cheapish pair of headphones. I went for a good make, but then there were several good makes to choose from! I tried them when I got home, and I was completely blown away!
These are amazing headphones by any standard, but for the price I suggest you throw your old ones away and get some 818's.
9/10 for sound only, because I am sure if you pay enough there must be something better somewhere. (read more)
