Don't sit very snugly in the ear--can be easily jarred loose.

2 agree

Very limited warranty coverage considering some headphones around this price point offer a lifetime warranty or at least the standard 1 year.

1 agrees

Only come with one set of foam ear covers.

1 agrees

Sound may be too bass heavy for some.

Marketed towards consumers as an alternative to their stock buds or basic headphones, the Sony MDR-E818LP is a low priced dynamically driven earbud. At $8.99, the Fontopia branded MDR-E818LP is driven by a 16mm driver, tweaked to be especially bassy. Available at many locations for merely half their MSRP, the MDR-E818LP are truly a bottom of the barrel option. It is important to know that it is very unlikely that any 9 dollar earbud will sound good. Sony's poor warranty may also be an issue, but at only 9 dollars, such a loss may not be as hard to bear as the $299 MDR-EX700LP.

  • Frequency Response: 12-22000Hz
  • Impedance: 16 ohms
  • Plug type: 1/8" (mini)
  • Driver technology: 1 16mm dynamic driver
  • Warranty: 90 days limited (US only)

For such a low price they are good. If you are currently using stock headphones that came with something else, these will usually be much better.
