Excerpt: I've had the Sony MDR-EX500LP Premium EX Earbud Style Headphones for over 2 years and have used them for hours a day on a daily basis; indoors, outdoors, at the gym, etc. They still work great and I haven't lost any of the removeable earbuds. I picked up two pairs of these, one for the gym and one for everything else.
Excerpt: I actually got these on sale for less than $10, so thanks to the guy who probably didn't print the price correctly. Anyway, these earphones use a fairly large dynamic driver, which you listen to from the side. This improves bass, which is very detailed and well extended, and the treble too is very crisp...almost to the point of being fatiguing.
This here, is and in-ear earpiece and comfort for in-ear earpieces vary from user to user, they tend to give an insecure fit even if placed “well” into the ear canal, the constant feel of it falling off is a huge downside to this pair of earpiece. This flaw affected the performance. Every size of the provided ear buds I tried yield similar results.
Pros: Unique shape, Eye-catching housing, A step-up from standard earpieces.
Cons: Cost, Sound quality could be better, Insecure fit. Price tag could be better set.
Summary: I actually got these on sale for less than $10, so thanks to the guy who probably didn't print the price correctly. Anyway, these earphones use a fairly large dynamic driver, which you listen to from the side. This improves bass, which is very detailed and well extended, and the treble too is very crisp...almost to the point of being fatiguing.
For $10 these are a bargain, but their retail of about $75 is far more realistic.
Summary: I was really pleased with the sound, but they lasted only 10 and a half months. The left channel just died, while walking on the street. Fortunately for me, I got a refund from iheadphones.co.uk.
Summary: I've had a lot of expensive earphones in the past. I started off with Sennheiser cx300, which I absolutely loved, but eventually gave up on me. I replaced these with Ultimate Ears Super-Fi 4s. I also had some old EX-71s which I always liked so decided to go for these when the Super-Fis went the same way. These are easily the best earphones I've ever owned. The detail is unmatched. When I first put them un I was hearing mid details in songs I simply hadn't heard before.
Summary: Let me first start with saying that I am very picky about my personal sound equipment, and wouldn't touch those cheap and crappy earphones that so many music players come bundled with. Throughout the last decade I have been a great fan of Sony's in-ear headphones. My last earphone was the Sony MDR-EX71, but when it finally broke (as my earphones for some reason tend to do after a year or two) I thought that I would try out something different.
