I don’t normally like earbuds. They get into your ear and create space where space wasn’t meant to exist. Often times painful and awkward while trying to lay on your side while wearing. Not at all conducive to falling asleep while listening to something. The Sony Qlasp headphones really provided a unique solution to this problem for me. They were comfortable yet very, very secure given their clip on mechanism under the speaker. At first I thought this would just make things worst and be even more painful, but I hardly noticed that they were attached. The first earbud cups worked well for me, but there are a few other sizes for even the most mousy of ears.
I also found that they had amazing sound quality for their size. The first thing I did was listen to Gorillaz’ Plastic Beach in its entirety with the Qlasps, and was surprised to be hearing the subtle bass tones that I got with larger Sennheiser models. The only issue I had with them with them was the color. I don’t normally pick green for my first choice, in anything other than money. It does however make them very easy to find when you lose them while sleeping (don’t tell me no one else tosses and turns). Still, the design of the other models is very sleek and stylish with the color options.
One thing that I like is the cord length. For some reason, the other earbuds I’ve used have lopsided cord length for right and left speakers. This design makes no sense to me. It doesn’t help me at all, and it just makes it awkward when putting them on. The Sony Qlasp headphones keep them both the same length like normal headphones should be.
I can’t really say I’ve ever used a more comfortable set of earbuds that have actually STAYED in my ear while laying down. I’ll use them all the time for my go-to headphones. I’m also going to be picking up a separate pair so I don’t have to switch them between my iPod Touch and Android phone.
