    The sound quality exceeded my expectations. Before trying them, I thought there was going to be a lot of environment noise similar to the old Walkman headphones of the 1980's. This was not the case. These are spectacular headphones with great portability. If you are a true audiophile, perhaps you should look at models in a different price-point, HOWEVER, for the cost of these, and the portability, they are perfect. They deliver a full range of tones, offer decent privacy, and are VERY light and comfortable. If your needs are similar to mine, BUY THEM!!!

  • I decided to splurge for the PX 100-IIi after losing my iPhone ear buds on vacation (I already own a pair of PX-100's I'm quite happy with). I'm glad I did since I find ear buds uncomfortable and like these so much more. In fact I bought a pair for my sister, too. I use them while running on the treadmill at the gym and have used them while running a couple of 5K events. And the sound quality is good (for me).
