Rated 5 out of 5 by Miso Better than expected
I imported these buds almost a year ago and have been using them with an iPhone 5s exclusively. I use them at the office, in the gym and when I go running. They are really stealthy and professional looking.
The sound quality is pretty decent considering the fact my iPhone 5s doesn't support AptX. I would expect the quality to be even better with an AptX source.
My main gripe is that the included tips aren't that great for exercising with because they tend to fall out. I retrofitted some Comply Foam tips to the SBH80 and have had no complaints since. To Sony's defense however, these aren't really marketed as sport buds...
And a minor concern is that the charge cable is obnoxiously short. Sony if you're gonna include a super short cable, then you may as well not include one and cut the price by $5-10.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Oleg123 Falls from ears
Came to a store to try these out. Found out that the ear-buds fall from ears. Tried all the ear bud sizes (there are three of them) -- still same result. Read other reviews complaining about the same problem.
I don't understand why Sony does not make earphones with old good in-ear pieces too. I understand that ear-buds better isolate external sound -- but it does not work for everybody.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteveH86 AWESOME!! A must buy, no more yanking cords!!
Sony nailed these. Awesome sound quality. Great fit, super comfortable. Earbuds don't fall out so perfect for running, biking, studying, whatever. Good quality product. And... NO MORE CORDS! Seriously, no more tangled up, stuck on jacket, yanked out of ear cords. I can't stress that enough. I keep feeling like I'm going to hit a cord when I move my arm, but there isn't any! FREEDOM!!
