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.
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.
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
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.
Pros: Great sound, lows and mids are definitely well done on these.
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.
Summary: As they come straight out of the box it was a bad idea to plug and play immediately. I was disappointed as i forgot to leave them playing for themselves for a while. But after doing that the surprise was big and positive!!
Pros: Build quality and sound quality are very good. It gives an open, honest and relaxing picture.
Cons: The price and the issue with the higher regions which is imo the transients and not the region itself.
Summary: I just got it more than 1 month, and I am willing to give some advices to those people who want this item. I like listening to music very much, and I am interested in the music equipments(earphone and mp3/4 player). Before I bought ex700, I had a Ultimate Ear TF10(a earphone) with my mp3-Kenwood D9.
good quality headphones, only buy if you are sure they are right for you

Excerpt: From my personal knowlewdge i think that these ear phones are the best on the market. From being marketed by sony alone makes them have a very high standard in its own, and the price tag involved is an indication to the quality of these headphones.
Summary: I have received my mdr-ex700 few days ago, and I fell in love with it at first listen, it is very well balanced sounding earphone on all frequencies, very good bass for an earphone, some time I got carried away and I thought I was listing through ATH-W5000, I mean it, this earphone is that good.
