Facts About Sony ZX Series Wired On-Ear Headphones, Black MDR-ZX110
The ear fit is not the problem. As far as I am concerned the sound is not as good as other Sony Models Please try the Sony Stereo Model (Dynamic Stereo Headphones Model-MDR-V150).
Is it the 2.5mm plug or the 3.5mm plug. Doesn’t have to be 90 degrees!
Hi Michael Christopher,
This headphones supports 3.5mm stereo mini jack. Please check the kindle fire if it supports 3.5mm stereo mini jack. Thanks. >Joffrey
Quite well, they are not "noise cancelling" by any means but I wore them on a 3 hour flight and they were comfortable and sounded great throughout.
47 ¼ inch (1.2 meter) tangle free, Y type cord is listed in the product description, so 3/4 of an inch under 4 feet. SO NOT 5-6 FEET
Muff diameter is almost 3 inches
Hi Delcho, this unit does not need batteries. Thank you. ~Earl
This model does not include the in-line volume control, but it can be controlled like any normal audio device via the computer/phone/etc. There is a model of these headphones that do include in-line volume control, however.
It depends on the cover you have. Our model has the L-shaped jack and does not fit with the lifeproof case on an iPad mini. I had to purchase an extender.
It has a combo 3.5 mm jack with FOUR bands (conductors). 1 common, 1 left speaker, 1 right speaker, 1 monophonic microphone. This will plug directly into some computers. To use with computer with separate 3.5 mm jacks for headphones and microphone, you can buy an inexpensive splitter. For use with many cordless phones … It has a combo 3.5 mm jack with FOUR bands (conductors). 1 common, 1 left speaker, 1 right speaker, 1 monophonic microphone.

For use with many cordless phones and cell phones, you can buy an adapter cord. 3.5 mm female jack at one end, at other end is male plug, 2 mm, 3 bands (phones are mono so one band connects to both speakers). Note that model MDRZX110AP has a microphone but MDRZX110 does not, it has earphones only.
I don’t believe it comes with a Mic. Mine doesn’t have one.

They cover your ears which helps block out surrounding sounds. As for any good for hard of hearing, my husband is hard of hearing and he says they are okay and it helps that the cushion of the earphones help keep the music or what you are listening to going directly to your ears. I hope that helps in your choice.
Hi There! Yes, this pair of headphones is made in Japan. Regards, -Jay
The iPod Classic used a 3.5mm jack and this is a 3.5mm plug. So yes, it does work.
Info About Sony ZX Series Wired On-Ear Headphones, Black MDR-ZX110 (Reviews From Amazon)
UPDATE: 6/19/21 I just wanted to update because my daughter just brought her headphones home from school for summer vacation and they are in great condition. Even the cords & the ear pads, which always seem to be the first to go. My daughter said she wants to still use these next year since they’re so comfortable, especially while she’s wearing her glasses. Honestly, one school year is what I’d hope to get from these at this value. I’m kind of excited they’re still going strong!
UPDATE: 10/14/20 Bought a 2nd pair for our 3rd grader to use at school. Originally, we bought her the lightweight, on ear styled, Koss brand headphones on here, but she thought they were too tight and uncomfortable to wear for any length of time. Especially because she wears glasses, and now a mask as well. She loved these tho! Said they felt great, and has been using them at school for just over 6weeks with no problems.
ORIGINAL: We bought these for my mother in-law to use with her t.v. because she is starting to become hard of hearing. We wanted to check everything out before setting everything up for her, and we found these were made well, had good sound volume and quality, were comfortable for a decent length of time, and overall were good headphones. She wanted to have two different styles. These were the one style that she was able to use in her 3.5mm tablet as well, which was an added bonus. She had hoped both pairs would work in her tablet, but the on ear computer style Panasonic did not fit, but still works for the t.v. set up, which was her main concern. The Panasonic had a smaller pin, so it might have worked in a cell phone. She did not try it, but I will update once she does. I wish we had thought to try ourselves. We purchased everything on Amazon for her setup. This pair fit all of our heads and have a lot of adjustability. They do show which way to put them on by marking the back of the ear pad section with “L” for left & “R” right, as shown in my photos. These are decently padded, and if taken care of should last. Overtime, this padded material may start to crack and chip away, but they’re pretty good for this value. The Panasonic ones were more lightweight when wearing for long periods, so she’s still glad she got both pair. We waited 2mnths to review so she had a chance to really use these and see how they worked, and we told her we’d return them if needed, but she is happy with them. They’ve really helped with her quality of life. She had stopped watching t.v. for a time because she just couldn’t hear it anymore, so I’m happy the volume and sound quality was good enough so she could use them daily. We may order another pair of these for our daughter. I will update if these fail. I hope my pictures help give you an idea of what to expect in person.
I had a pair from this headphone line in the past, and used them until they basically fell apart (one side stopped working, and the cushioning material for the ears eventually peeled away.) And yet after trying myriad other brands, I rate these as my personal best. After my first pair died (took several years of daily use), I went on a quest to try a bunch of different headphones. After wasting hundreds of dollars over the past couple years on everything from fancy $200 pairs, cheap Amazon-branded pairs, and plenty of random ones from places like Big Lots or Walmart, I finally just came back to these for a meager $15. There’s simply no beating the combination of comfort (especially for people with glasses!), sound quality, and price. I work in front of a computer for hours at a time, and almost always have headphones (and eye glasses) on. I probably have a larger than average head shape too. Every single other pair I have tried ended up making my ears hurt before long, except this one. While the construction quality is decent, I do expect to run through a new pair every couple years, but at this price point, it’s really hard to complain. In summary, I am so thankful these are back in my life.
These are great headphones for music and movies for the price. I have never owned a big-money pair of headphones & after buying cheap ones that I had to replace multiple times due to breakage, I decided to get these after a recommendation from a friend. After buying them for myself, I also bought them for each of my kids. They’re great for average use… i’ve never been bothered by outside noise, they are comfortable, and the sound is of good quality. They also are much sturdier than the cheapie $10-$20 ones I’ve gotten before. (My kids haven’t broken them, which is a minor miracle)
I do recommend getting a bag or carrying case for them (I use a Crown Royal bag:) it certainly helps protect them and they do seem vulnerable at the hinges where they collapse for storage.
The only thing my kid complains about is the wire is kind of short. I prefer it because the wire is nice and thick and never gets tangled. with my previous cheap ones, it was always the wires that were delicate & one or both ears would go out. These are so much sturdier. (I think he just finds them too short when he wants to sit in the recliner with his iPad on the table & watch his Minecraft. If you don’t require your headphones to meet these specific and ridiculous needs, the length should be fine.)
Alright. For about $10, we’re can’t expect too much… however there’s value in these cheap headphones. Let me explain:
– Extremely inexpensive.
– Not too loud – perfect for hearing protection.
– Compact, foldable.
– Cheap materials, don’t expect these to last for long.
– Muddy sounding, especially in the presence of lower frequencies.
– Distortion with high volume, around 70-80% with my Galaxy S8+ without ATMOS and with a flat EQ, depending on frequency.. noticeable around 1k Hz and lower .
– No isolation, you literally hear everything around you while music plays. This could be a PRO because if you’re kids try to tell you they can’t hear you, you can call them little liars.
– Foam cuffed earphones mean sweat. Not multi-use headphones.
– Cord feels like a very cheap material; theoretically being the cause of death for your headphones in the future.
All of these reasons NOT to buy them. Well, why the heck did you give them 5 stars? Because they’re perfect for kids. I don’t care I’d they want Apple ear buds, Galaxy Buds, or Beats.. if they can’t take care of a set of $10 headphones, they don’t deserve $200 headphones. These are perfect for kids and irresponsible big kids. I done expect my 7 year old to pass threes down three generations later to her great grandchildren, I do think it’s a great investment for online school. They help keep the distractions around them to a minimum without hurting their ears, head, or your wallet. This is why they were given 5 stars.
Arrived on time & in good / new condition. Sound quality is mediocre, but these are a heck of a lot better than dealing w/ the tears-inducing migraine that comes from headphones that squeeze my ears and jaw. They’re not as comfortable as they claim to be, but markedly more comfortable than the Amazon Basics ones of similar appearance. If you’re looking for something practical, and can handle a very short cord, like if you’re on your laptop, these are for you. Wouldn’t use them for exercise or movement of any sort. I’ll probably buy them again, if they randomly short out on me. I’d say they’re worth the $15 I paid, but if the price goes up, I won’t buy them again. 🙂 -Account holder’s progeny
Love the look of these and the sound quality is good, particularly for the price. I have a small-ish head size and these boxed my ears so bad the first week I wore them. Ouch! Another reviewer mentioned to stretch them out by leaving them around a sofa armrest or something like that, and after doing that, I haven’t had any trouble with my ears hurting.
PROS: SONY headphones under $10 I could not believe it. I’m glad that I actually had the model number and approximate price as “TRS 3.5mm Headphone” search was not yielding headphones in this price range. Going off site and coming back here to check price I was amazed at how low it was. With Prime I was able to get next day delivery. Plugged them into my TV and SOUND yeah I’m a happy man. My TV does TRS not TRRS and this headphone set solved that problem. There is something about the wiring on some TRS to TRRS adapters than make it so they will not work with other stereo outputs. Whatever the reason it was cheaper just to go get new headphones and I’m glad I did. These sound great and WOW THE FIT. First I was glad to see that they fold flat if needed. Also I have always thought myself to have a large head, lord knows I was accused of that enough growing up. I adjusted these to maximum put them on my head and had to tighten them up to fit meaning that I think they will fit anyone. 🙂
CONS: None noted so far.
Yes I’d recommend them to a friend and I’d buy them again without a second thought. WOW SO GREAT
I got these for $7.99 on a lightning deal. They are excellent for the price. I ordered two pair: one for my 3 year old and one as a travel pair of headphones. The sound quality is impressive for the price. These are on the ear headphones, not over the ear. So, passive noise isolation won’t be as good. However, they are quite comfortable. I could easily wear these for a couple hours while watching a movie. The physical size of the headphones make them a good choice for children. Sure, they aren’t brightly colored, but I’m willing to bet the sound quality and price are much better than you’d pay for a branded set of crappy headphones. Also, I was surprised at the quality of the cord. I was expecting a thin, cheap cord. It’s actually fairly thick and tangle resistant. Only complaint I have — I wish the cord connected at a single point, rather than running to each ear piece. But, again, for the price they’re darn good quality.
Update: I’ve now used these headphones several times on the treadmill. I like them even more now. When running, you’ll occasionally run into a set of headphones with a seriously flimsy cord. As you run, a flimsy cord will bounce and become seriously annoying. These don’t do that at all. I love how the solid cord just hangs with minimal movement. Also, the ear pads will get a bit sweaty, but nothing a quick wipe won’t rectify. I’ll let you know how they hold up for exercise use.
I had these exact headphones, bought at Target years ago, and they had finally gotten so worn that I needed new ones. I really liked the ones I had though, so I decided to buy the same type. I hadn’t realized just how worn my old ones really were until I used these!!
The fit over my head and my ears is much more snug, my old ones had gotten so loosened and stretched from years of use that I usually had to actively hold the ear-parts to my ear to get the best effect, something I hadn’t actually realized was because of it’s age/wear until I wore these. Not tight or uncomfortable in any way, just perfectly snug.
I also realized the sound quality itself is a lot better, I’d actually assumed it was a volume issue with my computer, that I’d had to turn up the volume louder as time had gone on. But these new headphones show it wasn’t a computer issue. I tested these by listening to a few specific songs and not only do they sound clearer and more (focused, I guess?) but songs I’d been listening to at 35-45 volume now sound equally loud and clear at 25-30 volume with these new headphones! I had no idea it would make such a difference.
(comparison photo with old ones on top to show difference!)
Most big-name stores nowadays seem to mostly carry the fancy more expensive headphones with phone/Bluetooth/microphone/etc, I didn’t want any of that. I just wanted simple good-quality headphones to listen to music and videos with, and these are perfect for that.
I originally bought these (in Nov. 2020) for my kids to use at home and for virtual school. I did not buy the ones with the microphones, so can’t speak as to how that works. At the time I purchased these, we had been having really bad luck with other brands of earphones, they would last a few weeks and then stop working. So, I bought 4 pairs, with the expectation that at $10 a piece they also wouldn’t last long. I have 1 pair still in the package. The other three are still in use and work perfectly. My youngest is rough on them, often throwing them on the couch or where ever else he is going to be sitting. They have been shoved in back packs and sat on, but they are still working.
Personally, I don’t think these have the highest quality or clearest acoustics for listening to music or watching a movie. However, they work great for my kids, who use them every day. I have been so impressed by the durability and for the cost if the ones we have do end up breaking or stop working I would purchase another set of these.
