  • Summary: I used to use the ck10 and ex700 to complement eachother as my standard IEM's, which was a nice pair of two very different IEM's, I used the ck10 much more, but I liked the sound quality of the ex700 sometimes, if you click on my username you can find my ck10 review where I compare them with certain...
  • Pros: Really excellent sound... IF you use the right source and eq! Pretty good with classical and acoustic music, but really shines with my dark electro!
  • Cons: Harsh, weak imaging, deceitful, some users may find sibilant, some users may find blissful. Deafening.

  • Summary: This review will likely be all but redundant soon, as Sony seems to be constantly re-branding its earphones. But I believe these are still available, and relatively good value. They have excellent clarity, but not much soundstage. Separation is quite adequate.
  • Pros: cohesive presentaion, natural lower frequencies, quite detailed
  • Cons: SIBILANT, you really need to EQ off 8 db from 5-6khz

  • Summary: Package: Nice looking small hard leather case that is not so usable due to a lot of cable folding (when I describe the cable you'll understand why is case so useless), plenty of silicone tips of different sizes but no foam tips like with EX1000 for example.
  • Pros: Good soundstage; Very clear sounding with great bass.
  • Cons: Piercing treble; Extremely bad cables.

  • Summary: These aren't too great for hard rock or anything with high-pitched crashing sounds like symbols. It's ok at medium volume levels. Loud crashing symbols can sound more like high pitched white noise on these, it will get painful at high volumes. With more bassy genres these are actually very good.
  • Pros: Great sound, lows and mids are definitely well done on these.
  • Cons: Sibilance

  • Summary: Good IEM, classy, comfy. Audio quality is very correct. Not audiophile like, but when you're commuting or doing sport you don't wear your full size headphones with amp in the pocket! Those earbuds are solid, reliable, stock cable never even once rattle in 6 years of use.
  • Pros: comfort, good isolation, quality, design
  • Cons: grainy, highs are little artificial, sub 50hz is gone

CNET
24 June 2008

  • Pros: hervorragende allgemeine Klangqualität, kräftiger Sound, hoher Tragekomfort
  • Cons: hoher Preis, Probleme mit den Höhen
