Product Reviews for Sony MDR-EX38IP Earphone - Stereo
Broke immediately after warranty expired
from New York, NY on 6/13/2013
I bought these headphones three months ago, and they have a 90-day manufacturers warranty. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that one side of the headphones seemed a bit fainter than the other. Then today (6/13/13), literally TWO DAYS after the warranty expired, one of the earbuds stopped working entirely. This is a situation in which I believe Sony should honor the warranty, yet thus far they have been unwilling to do so. Until they do, I'd give this product a one-star rating and would strongly recommend against purchasing these headphones.
Should off just bought new ipod headphones.

Never pay retail price for this earphones. Compared to the ipod headphones, this things are trash.

I got this pair for Christmas and was thoroughly surprised. I wasn't expecting much though for a $40 set with a remote, which is extremely nice to have, I was expecting a better change than the stock iPhone headphones.... And there was change alright. The bass was brought out a little more but not to the point of where it gets annoying, but the mods were pretty much left the same. The Highs around 5kHz+ made me wince everytime I had my headphones at normal level. They hurt and now I have to get used to listening to my headphones lower because Spotify doesn't have an Equalizer. Other than that, the headphones are good and you get what you pay for...

I like the earbuds for their fit and convenience. However, this product is not made to last, and they're relatively expensive. I am on my third pair in 8 months. Typically, the left earbud (where the volume control, microphone, etc. are located) stop working, making the earbuds mono.
Perfect for a lefty, haha!

Great sound quality, no earbud problems (I don't blast it like these other kids do), fruit nice
Volume up mini-spring inside remote broke after more than a year of use
Love the sound, blocks out some noise, not too much bass. The only problem I could find with it was, in more than good year of frequent use; a spring for the "+" and the middle are failing in the remote. By the way, I am a lefty, and having the remote on the left earbud cord made this absolutely perfect for me!
