Excerpt: I received these headphones as a Christmas gift for my Zune. My Zune headphones had quit working and I needed another pair. I didn't really know what to expect with these headphones as I did not pick them out and did not do any type of research on them. I really enjoy them. They fit very nicely in my ears. There are other silicone ear pieces if you need larger or smaller ear pieces. They have a good sound.
Excerpt: I am currently on my third pair of earphones. Although, they don't last forever (my first two pairs lasted about a year each, but my third one... has been a couple of years at least), I still keep buying these because I like them. I like how the feel - I use the smallest earbud size. Other earphones are too big, don't last as long, or don't fit right. These earphones are great for the price and sound quality, at least for me.
Excerpt: The Sony headphones work very good. They are inexpensive and sound good. I decided to buy inexpensive headphones over headphones that cost $50 or more. I prefer buying inexpensive headphones so I do not feel I have to handle headphones like a newborn child. I don't feel bad for treating headphones with rough treatment. I use this Sony headphones to connect to both my laptop and desktop.
Excerpt: These are nice mid-level headphones by Sony. Good sound, nice bass. The design blocks out external noise fairly well.These earbuds are stylish and come with several bud covers for a customized fit.The cord is just the right length and detachable in the middle in case you accidently yank it.These earbuds are great for the gym or jogging.
Excerpt: These headphones are not only lightweight, but don't hurt your ears even when flying cross-country. The sound quality is great and the sound stays in your ears so others can't hear what you're listening to. These headphones stay in your ears even while at the gym, including running.
Excerpt: These clear and rich sound earphones are amazing! I am a music enthusiast and when I had to play the new songs by Madonna and Whitney, the clarity of the songs with these headphones was AMAZING! I am thrilled to be a SONY buyer from Televisions, to headphones, to MP3 players . . . with SONY you can never go WRONG! CLEAR & RICH CLARITY sound is what these headphones advertise and deliver!
Excerpt: My husband bought me Sony headphones for my ipod for my birthday, and I love them. I had previously tried the headphones that came with my ipod as well as other headphones I had bought, and the others either didn't fit in my ears properly (were too big, not the right shape) or did not last very long. The Sony headphones fit perfectly and actually stay in my ears. The sound quality is great as well. To make it even better, they come in a variety of colors.
Good quality, bad durability: MDR-EX71 Sony Earphones
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I have gone through 2 sets of these headphones in the past 5 years. They will start to fray at the wires if you use them on a regular basis and especially on the move (such as running or going to the gym). The sound they produce is quite good, especially considering that they are earphones, and especially considering their price point. They are a little bit heavy on the bass side however. The volume is quite good...but there is a little bit of sound leakage audible.
Excerpt: Finally. I finally found some headphones that stay in my ears. I thought maybe I was a freak of nature. Everyone you see on the street or in the gym has the white IPOD headphones stuck in their ears. Not me. I would try so hard to stick them into my ears, but always they fell out. Thus began my search for something that would fit. I tried many different kinds when my daughter had me try her headphones. I had found my nirvana. I had found my Sony MDR-EX71SL.
Summary: Got these for a birthday (so no idea on how much was paid). Had them a good few years, think I got them in 09 but could have easily been much earlier (04?)
Because there a gift I've always resisted replacing them. The Y split actually cracked after a year and very nearly was the end of them, but the cable was intact inside and I used Aroldyte epoxy 2 part glue to perfectly re form the oval y Splitter and ultimatly provide a stronger form to hold it together.
Pros: Ok sound, far better than stock buds, amazing isolation
Cons: Can get a lil uncomfortable, sibilance can be high, few ways they can and do break easily
