Sony MDR-Q55SL A.I.R. Lightweight, Open-Air, Clip-On Headphones - Those in-ear earphones that many MP3 players and iPods come with have great sound and superior isolation from external noise. The latter can be a problem as you move about in streets or roads. There are many noises - alerts such as sirens and car horns - that you might be oblivious to because you can't hear them. This means, that while walking and listening, you might be subjected to a greater likelihood of possible accidents. Sony MDR-Q55SL is an earphone that combines the feeling of an open-air headphone with the secure comfort of an ear-bud. You still experience the rich, full-range sound of the music but you also have a little sense of the environment around you. You can listen and walk on busy streets without impairment for safer mobility. So while your digital player's earbuds are fine for the solace of home or office, the MDRQ55SL is the headphone for those times in between. Better safe than sorry! Turning adjustment feature provides easy wearing and flexibility to fit various-size ears Large turbo duct offers a powerful, deep bass Adjustable 4 foot long (approximate) connecting cord with tangle-free cord slider Stereo uni-match plug (mini/phone) - nickel plated / Mini plug is L-shaped Weight - 1.2 ounces For all portable stereo listening devices that use stereo headphones

These are a great successor in terms of iteration to that line of products. The fit and feel with the unique clip on the ear style, while still being over the ear in terms of the headphone drivers, is very similar. If you liked those previous products and are looking for a second pair, or need a replacement, this is the one to go with rather than paying top dollar for those now discontinued models on the secondary market.
The cord now has a fabric like sheathe instead of rubber which seems more durable to the touch without losing any flexibility. It's also more resistant to knotting up when tangled as the fabric is fairly slippery.
I only have two real issues with this particular model. The (Gray) color looks to be gray and blue in the product photos but the "blue" is really closer to a shade of lavender on the product in real life, to my eye at least. Not a big deal, but still worth mentioning.
The second issue is that these were designed with the ability to plug into one of Sony's in-line remote controls that come with certain Sony music players. This means the cord coming out of the actual headphones is about 22" long. However you are given a matching extension cord that's about 40" long. This makes the headphone cable plenty long enough but does add some bulk where the headphones plug into the extension that could potentially get caught up in everyday use.
they're comfortable at first, don't slide around or pull away at all if you get the clamp on right, but tends to make you sore after a few hours. sound isn't normal headphone or earbud quality to be sure, but it's got bass! that's pretty unique among clip headphones.
downside is how fragile the stupid things are. I would never try to sleep with these on for fear of rolling on top of them.
Once you get them on, they will stay on.
Stay aware of your surroundings.
Versatile and tough cord.
Easy to wear when not in use.
These can be a real honeybadger to get on, and they are not the most comfortable I've had.
The cord that is part of the headphones is short. It does come with an extension that is stupid long. If you have a shirt pocket or arm band that can hold your phone, you don't need it. If you are wearing your pants so low, your pockets are picking stuff up off the sidewalk, then the extension is just the right size.
The extension cord is not convenient to carry or put away when not in use.
If you got the scratch, get the Sony MDR-Q68LW. They are more delicate, but a little more practical.
